Nice for a school course

Pros: Easily accessible off the highway, this nine hole, middle school course boasts decent 18 chain DGA baskets with number plates, and distances ranging from 115 to 245 feet, meaning it's scaled for casual players (or I suppose, for competitive players who want to pitch and putt a few ace runs). Using the map added here on dgcr, there actually are a few interesting lines to throw around trees and other obstacles, so you can work some on shaping your approach shots. If you designate the driveway as OB, or define some trees as mandos, you might actually feel like half the holes become short par 3's.
Cons: But there isn't much in the way of elevation, there aren't any tees or signs (the number plates on the baskets face in random directions, too), and there isn't any real challenge for players above the Novice level.
Other Thoughts: Obviously, this is a school ground course, and should not be played during school hours (except maybe by students in gym class!). Kudos to ajbova for drawing up a reasonable map of the course, complete with some reasonably challenging lines, rather than going with the basket to basket 'sample course layout' in the pictures.

Pros: Baskets - 9 brand new grippy DGA baskets. Can play course backwards for 18 total holes.
Great course for new players or for skilled players wanting to try a new mid range disc.
Lots of room for improvement / lots of potential.
Not many courses in the area.
Great for safari golf.
Course starts and ends near entrance to the school.
Cons: No established tee pads. Course plays basket to basket.
Not much shade. A few young trees but overall the course could use 20 more trees.
Holes are too short.
No signs nor a course map.
Numbers on baskets are facing the wrong way.
Other Thoughts: The longest hole is 250 so this course is great for starters or if you need a boost in confidence. For $100 pavers or markers could be purchased which would give this course established throw pads.
Basket to Basket this course is a 1.5. It could easily be improved. With a few paver stones or rocks to designate tees for each hole, this course could immediately be improved. There are several potential lines that would boost this courses image.
If this course had two tees per hole (even with natural tees) and had signs, it would be between a 2 and a 2.5. Basket to basket provides short holes, there is room to make the holes longer and more challenging. There is a lot of room for potential including lots of solid lines.
Not a destination course but would be a great starter course. It's on the property of Raymond Park Middle School so it has a lot of visibility.
