Pros: -Great baskets
-Good tee signs
-Great course maintenance. No poison Ivy, and grass perfectly manicured.
-The course makes very good use of what little land there is.
Cons: -The tee pad situation is not good. It is often confusing which side of the tee sign you should be playing on, and it seems to switch from hole to hole.
-Can be difficult to get into the course. We had to park on the street a slip through a locked gate.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a pretty decent course. For the little bit of land available, the designer did a phenomenal job creating 18 fun holes. There are only 9 baskets, but 18 tee pads, and in most cases the different tee pads gives you a brand new look at the hole.

Pros: - Baskets are great. Very condition and have number plates.
- Not very crowded.
- Very good use of the available area for a disc golf course.
- The multiple tees per basket offer a truly unique second look at each basket. In other words, feels like a true 18 hole course even though there's only 9 baskets.
- Signage is pretty good.
Cons: - No benches or trash cans.
- No restrooms that I've found. Some of the ball field restrooms are generally locked.
- Lacks in distance variety. Many holes are 160 to 210 feet and there's a handful of longer 330+ holes.
- The loop of the course starts on one end of a long parking lot, then ends on the other end. So after hole 9 and hole 18, you have a long walk.
Other Thoughts: - This course is fun if you don't play it very often. I could see it getting old if played with some frequency.
- The tee pads are natural turf; however they are not clearly marked. There is a tee sign for each hole, but you don't know to tee from the left side or right of the signs. Our group just agreed with each tee where to tee by placing two discs near the sign. For being natural turf, the teeing areas are generally very smooth.
- There is a water hose near the south end of the track which comes in handy during the hot months.

18 Holes, 9 Baskets

Pros: -Tee signs on every hole
-Alt. tees truly give you 9 more holes with completely different shots
-Baskets are in excellent condition
-Park is in immaculate condition, regularly maintained, and the grass is kept 'golf course' short.
-Good mix of tight technical holes and more open holes with plenty of O.B. to keep you honest
-Informative tee signs
-Low traffic
Cons: -No trash cans or benches
-Only 9 baskets with 18 tees could get complicated if multiple groups were playing (I don't see this being a real problem, though)
-Holes #1/#10 and #9/#18 are on opposite ends of the park. Long walk, no shade.
Other Thoughts: I've lived 10 miles from this course for over 10 years and didn't know it existed until recently. I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The 9 basket layout with 18 tees is done right; not just "Pro" tees numbered 10-18. Each tee is a unique shot with 2-3 exceptions. The park itself is very nice and perfectly maintained. There aren't many amenities for disc golfers; benches, trash cans, scorecards, maps, etc.

All in all, this is a fun course that anyone can enjoy, Tough for beginners and minimal challenge for Pros.
