Pros: Nice open fields for a beginning player to get accustomed too, Baskets are pretty okay. Right in the heart of the city and a step away from downtown, the park itself is pretty sweet.
Cons: People, people, people. No course signs (sans 1 at the first target). Teepads are a nightmare. Dangerous course.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't the best in the south, Located intertwining the park, GP's course is just a testament to how much potential the course has. However it's biggest flaw is everything else. First off, the course is again, snaking through the park. Which means people. Loads of them lounge about, and i honestly feel like kind've a jerk when every hole I either have to ask them to move, or try to attempt to stop their child from picking up my disc and throwing it around. I had a hard time trying to get one back from a dog as well.

Second thing that really irked me were the teepads, They are supposed to be woodchip but after constant abuse and wear, the ground was warped and you can easily snap your ankle here if youre not careful. It seems that after the hurricane it's just been ignored, and that, with the horrible design and repetitiveness gives the course a bad rep and look to it.

I agree with most disc golfers here that the course be uprooted and moved, or renovated. This course is much too dangerous and children can get hurt.

Pros: Its a park to throw in. Baskets are nice.
Cons: Very repetitive..........No real use of the little terrain that is there. People in the way.
Other Thoughts: I agree with pull and re-do The park could be done way better and keep the same amount of land.

Pros: Located in the heart of Lafayette. Bathrooms readily available. Concrete Tees.
Cons: Very very repetitive. Long straight holes. Few trees. Course clearly not planned well, terrain ignored. Simple, long, flat and clear. Very busy during the day that I was there which was a saturday. Saw other golfers who yelled for people to move away from the baskets or out of the way of discs.
Other Thoughts: This course needs to be pulled and redone. A good course to work simple accuracy, will not test or try the slightly-above-average disc-golfer. Will leave you wanting more in a bad way. There are better courses in Lafayette if you only have time for one.
