Break out the Wham-O's!

Pros: + There is one hole that uses a peninsula guarded by two adjoining roads, which could be played as OB
................ yeah, that's it...
Cons: - No signs. It is nearly impossible to know the order of holes intended to be played. the only indication would be to find railroad ties in the ground that are typically 20 to 30 feet from the previous basket
- The baskets are less than desirable. Between 60 - 80% of putts that would catch in decent baskets would either get the trampoline effect from the single row of chains or simply blow right through. Additionally, the baskets are in really poor shape and even one of them has an Octagon shape (see pics) rather than the typical circular basket. one pin was destroyed to the point of laying on the ground (but that might make for an interesting ace run)
- Although I'm sure whoever put in the course was only given the property used, it seemed it could have taken better advantage of the few trees there. The layout is nearly completely wide open, with hardly any obstacles to consider when preparing to shoot.
- Tee pads? who needs those when you have railroad ties?
Other Thoughts: After the quick 15 minute round, I took a walk around the rest of the park and found some surprising parts of the property that could make for some great disc golf. It was obvious that the baskets were all but randomly installed out in a field that was left over. The hiking trail area (although a bit marshy) would have actually made for a great 9-hole (maybe more) disc golf course that would be fun and challenging to play. As it stands now, however, it is largely a complete waste of time to travel here for the sole purpose of disc golf.

Pros: 1) Another small town course that makes disc golf more visible.
2) The holes are beginner friendly which I am sure many people who play here have never played before.
3) They did do a good job with the property they used including some elevation.
4) There were a few trees to contend with on this course but nothing that made the course all that difficult.
Cons: 1) Instep baskets (I believe) will not hold up over time.
2) No signs or course map to help navigate. I got lost on to how the course laid out so I am also unsure if I played everything. There may have been a basket missing, I just don't know for sure because I was confused.
3) There seem to be a couple of places where picnics or other park users might come into play. I played this at dusk on a Thursday so I did not encounter anyone but I could see it being an issue at busy times.
Other Thoughts: Take it for what it is . . . a small short course in a small town. It has redeeming value for its beginner friendliness and will hopefully inspire some of the locals to try out the sport.
