Needs some TLC
Pros: Very scenic course with lots of hills and plenty of evergreen trees.
Distances are long enough to make it challenging but not so long that its impossible.
Tee markers at each hole, some had signs.
Couple of concrete pads (size comment in the cons); and a couple used the path.
Memorable hole: #4 had to finish through a "tunnel" through some pines to the basket.
All the other holes had plenty of protection.... some with too much as the trees have gotten to a very mature stage.
Cons: Navigation!! No online map, or one at the site. Found tee #1 couldn't find the basket!! (there was no signage on the marker) At first I thought it was the very visible one, but that's #10 (distance was close to the scorecard distance.) Walked around til I found tee #2, then found the #1 basket. It's toward the street behind the pines.
What concrete pads were there were about 2' x 4", if that. Too small for my taste.
About 4 markers were missing the signage, and the signage that was there is very dated.
Other Thoughts: All the above said, it was actually a fun course to play. Just needs a refresh... new signs, add some tee boxes, move a basket or two to a realistic location and this would be a really good niner (actually 10 baskets!!)
So in summary, condition of amenities rate a 1.5 in my book, while the fun factor was at least a 3 so I'll balance it out at 2.5!!
Pros: Very challenging course
Holes for hyzers, anhyzers, short, and long..
No backyards to throw it into
Cons: Somes baskets are missing sometimes
No trash cans throughout
Cedars are disk eaters, only throw 1 and sherpa it..
Teeboxes are way too small
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to challenge your skilled/technical shots.
Not too bad

Pros: It's got character. Nice bending shots on multiple holes, minimal tree shots after first two holes, and one heavy duty drive. Great short course to play.
Cons: Smaller course with a lot of walking track running in the middle of your drives. People in this area will completely ignore you as well, so be careful.
Other Thoughts: Not worth going out of your way for, but a great course if you in the area and want to get a quick game in.

Pros: Challenging was the only thing I could say to myself that I liked about this course
Cons: Crossing fairways, awkward pin placements, was hard to navigate even with the signs, kinda sketchy overall... Perhaps if I'm in that area again for something boring I need to skip out on

Pros: The course is built on a nice piece of rolling ground. Holes are fairly short and good for beginners. Is usually well maintained as it shares space with an elementary school.
Cons: The evergreen trees make this course no fun. There is literally no path to the basket on several holes. If the city would trim the trees it would be a much better course.
Other Thoughts: Earlier in the summer when we played the course there was a group of players who were attempting to reconfigure the course. This might be promising.
Only worth a visit if you live nearby.

Cool Course Close to Home.
Pros: The course has some fun technical spots with some tricky options on your approach. Good elevation changes. The course was mowed and looked to be well maintained!
Cons: A few things that sucked were the extremely small tee pads on only a few holes (thanks) and hole 1 wasn't marked, with a lucky guess I found it, It's literally just a white pole.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm slightly biased on this course because its so close to my relatives place that I often visit. So when everyone is winding down I can go out and throw some discs before then sun goes down. It's a fun 10 hole course. The End.

Passable at best.
Pros: 1.Good elevation change.
2.Has a variety of holes: hyzers, anhyzers, short, and long.
3.Only a few holes that you are in danger of putting it in someone's yard.
Cons: 1.On many of the holes the cedar trees around the baskets are so over grown that there is no fairway. You throw, and hope it breaks through.
2.The tee pads are so short that they are more of an obstacle than a benefit.
3.On the weekends the course is very crowded.
4.Many of the holes are so close to each other that if another group is playing a hole you have to wait for them to get done before you can throw.
5.The walking path is regularly used, and runs through the middle of the course.
6.The course is almost always missing at least one basket.
Other Thoughts: It's tempting to rate this course lower to bring the average down to a rating that more accurately reflects the condition of this course, but I won't. It is my opinion that in its' current condition it is only passable. It should also be mentioned that in the summer the course is covered in insects, and after a rainstorm it turns into a swamp.

Decent at best
Pros: Nice baskets, varying challenges, plenty of trees for obstacles. The arrows on each basket points you in the right direction to the next tee box
Cons: Pine trees swallow discs, tee box missing on one hole, difficult to figure out sometimes.
not a complete course.
some tee boxes hard to find/decide where to start at
Other Thoughts: This course is a good little course if you just want to go wing a disc or two. Varying difficulty on each hole due to different lengths, obstacles and pin placement.

Its a course.
Pros: It is a disc golf course. There is elevation change, some long and some short holes. The walking path that runs thru the course never has much traffic on it so you never have to wait on people.
Cons: New tee boxes are a joke. You end up teeing off next to them or behind them so it won't mess up your approach. A majority of the hole are out in the open with the basket tucked into some cedars. You can pinpoint your shots but it basically comes down to luck weather or not you will break thru the barrier of cedars. There are only ten holes if they are all there. Some idiots out there think it is fun to steal baskets from this course. There are three baskets down or missing at this time that I know of.
Other Thoughts: Course could be redesigned to make it much more fun to play. There is an alternate course out there but I don't recall what the website was that had it posted. It's ok if you have no where else to play and just need to get out of the house and throw.
