Pros: 9 hole course set in multi-use park in the middle of town.
Concrete tee pad on each hole. They're in great shape, grippy, and plenty wide. They could stand to be a couple feet longer. I don't use a long run up, but I was starting with a foot off the back of the pad. One tee pad per hole.
Solid DGA baskets that caught well and were all in good shape. One pin position per hole.
For a course that isn't overly long, a good job was done with forcing line shaping. Several holes force certain lines, with mature trees as obstacles. Hole 9 is an especially tricky hole, with a low canopy, and clocking in well over 300'.
Navigation was fairly simple, especially now that the pine trees have been trimmed up. Decent tee signs on each hole, with distance.
No real chance of losing discs here, unless you really shank to the right on Hole 1 and put it in the water. Otherwise, there's no real rough here.
Cons: There's not really anything too bad to say about this course. It's not crazy long, but it's not crazy short, either.
Not a lot of elevation in play here...just a touch of rolling hill type topography.
A small amount of water, to the right of Hole 1, and a very small creek that runs next to Hole 2, but besides trees, that's the only real obstacles here.
It would be nice if Hole 9 finished closer to Hole 1, but it's not a really long walk, either.
Other Thoughts: Hole 1 starts right next to the road, so you can literally park right in front of the tee pad, which is nice.
This course won't beat you up, but for me (Int player), it's a decent little stop if you're playing Freitag or Rollin' Ridge.

Decent nine hole in small park
Pros: The course plays through a small public park. The park was well maintained and mowed when we were there. There are large level concrete tees for each hole. These were in great shape. The DGA baskets were also in great shape and caught very nicely. There is a pretty solid mix of different turning shots needed here. the trees are the main factor here but there is a little bit of elevation to make it a little more interesting. The tee signs show hole # and distance but not much else.
Cons: This is just a basic park nine holer. There's nothing overly redeeming about it.
Other Thoughts: This is not worth a stop if it's out of your way by any means but is a perfect warm up for rollin ridge if you're coming from the west on 10.

Pros: This is a small park with a nice little disc golf course, lots of mature trees, no underbrush and a few rolling hills. Navigation is easy, there are tee signs that list distance and concrete pads which looked like they'd just been poured when I was there 7/22/13.
The mature trees give multiple routes to the basket on a few holes and while it is mostly wooded, there are a couple more open holes to add to the variety. The course is fairly short with maybe one hole over 300 feet. While this lack of distance makes course sound easy, the few hills and abundance of trees are enough to keep it interesting.
While this is a small park, it has been designed well to keep you from throwing at shelters and playgrounds. There is a small park road that could come in play with a bad shot on a few of the holes, but it should be easy to tell if a car is coming.
Cons: Hole 9 had some low hanging branches keeping the fairway from being very fair.
Not very challenging.
Other Thoughts: Really aren't many cons about this course when you consider it's a small plot of land that's used to it's fullest extent and safely exists with a couple other things in the park. It's a fun little course that's good for newer golfers since it's shorter and with no underbrush to loose discs. There is a pond to the right of hole 1 which could come into play, but it's not so close it's a serious threat.
Great course for the locals to get started on before they tackle the great challenge Rollin Ridge presents just down the road.
