Pros: A course that is a bit better than most multipurpose parks. There are a few cons, but for an area that lacks disc golf courses, this is better than South Holland or Homewood. Recent post markers has made it easier to find tees.
Hole 1: Locate this on the far west side of the park adjacent to a man made hill. The tee marker is twenty feet south of the hill. Throw underneath the trees toward the tennis court.
Hole 2 and 3: Walk south past the parking lot and in between the ball fields is two next to the path. These fairways can be loaded with pedestrians. You may need to modify the course.
4,5 and 6: These baskets are in thicket of trees. Short and nondescript fairways make this similar to Summit.
7 and 8: are in the open area but seven is somewhat a tunnel shot while 8 is a great opportunity for an ace.
9: this drive is back by the tennis courts and on top of the manmade hill. It is a high risk, high reward shot.
Cons: The cons are that the course is disjointed and with big breaks between 1 and 2 and 8 and 9 will make these drives hard to find. The former markers, which are more like tombstones, are at ground level and provide no distance information and can be hard to locate. (This has changed to posts) On crowded days, two and three might be impossible to play.
Other Thoughts: The course is new and fun to play. Those looking for a serious challenge will find some of the drives banal. However, three is a lengthy distance shot that will have the long range throwers smiling. Four, Five and Six will get better as golfers beat in a fairway within a month or two. The rest of the course has some light thrills and it may not be long enough to justify driving lengthy distances to, but if you are in the neighborhood, its a good place to play.
