Not a bad little practice area

Pros: The baskets are set in a small community park that's grassy and well kept. There are a few young trees in play that may grow up to be more interesting obstacles in the future. A couple minor elevation changes are in play, you can practice slightly up- and downhill approaches and putts here. There are 9 marked tee locations and plenty of other safari options, with enough length to throw some real drives if the park is empty.
Cons: The baskets are set in a line, which limits the available shots a little. The baskets and tees play close to and over some paths and other park activities, and with the potential for blind shots to one of the baskets this could be a safety concern. I rate all courses on the same scale, so though this is a decent little spot to practice and a nice exposure for the sport it still doesn't have enough going for it to rank any higher.
Other Thoughts: Beginners can get a lot out of this practice area, it's a fine place to try out the sport and work on basic shots. More experienced players can use this for upshot and putting practice but won't find much of a chance to test any real line shaping skills. Don't drive to this one expecting a real course, it's just a nice little neighborhood practice spot.
