Pros: Open holes leave room for options in attacking the baskets.

Ace runs throughout the course.

Course is simple to navigate.

Although it is currently a 9-hole course, more baskets have been added.

Wooded holes make some shot shaping necessary.

Use of obstacles.
Cons: Lack of signage and distance can make disc choice difficult.

Open field holes are a bit redundant.

Soccer fields and playgrounds limit usage of certain holes.
Other Thoughts: All in all this is a good course to go out and throw your discs. There is plenty of room to throw everything in your bag, and to get some practice out of your discs. The original 9-holes are simple to follow, but the addition of new baskets is exciting by adding in a few wooden holes. This course will be much different once another 9 holes are put into play.

As of 9/14/13

Ace runs and birdy opportunities.

Signposts marking tee location.
Dead flat and primarily open.

Hole-8 plays across youth soccer fields.

Natural tees marked by signposts that contain information-less signs.
Other Thoughts:
Despite the lack of a map or signs, the course was simple enough to navigate - holes 1-6 clockwise around the edges of an open field, cross the parking lot for #7, diagonally across the soccer fields for #8, and back across drive for short #9, near tee-1.

No distance information, but based upon my typical distances, I'd suggest two (6,9) are 200'-225', five (2-5,7) are 250'-275', and two (1,8) are 400'-425'.

Designers tried to use what few obstacles were available:
#1 left-turn around mid-fairway building, basket in edge of treeline
#2 basket behind very large mound
#3-4 basket next to treeline on left, creek just beyond
#5 a small tree kinda near it
#6 an o.b. basketball court kinda near it
#7 small trees to miss early and late
#8 soccer nets 
#9 nuthin' - ace run city!

Have fun! But expect neither elevation change nor shot-shaping
