Pros: My buddies & I call this course..the secret course. We've played here 6 x & have yet to see anyone else playing..it's like our very own private course!
Nice surroundings..great park in a good area of SE Naples.
Cons: None. Watch out for bears! My friend saw one Dec 5th. near the pond. Actually, he said he saw the bear go into the water... swimming. And there's been reports of eaten fish around the pond...so it must be the bear?
LOL, update on the bear! It was a damn dog! Hahahha. biggest dog I've ever seen! My friend had been drinking...I should've known better then to believe him. :-)
Other Thoughts: This course is a very nice par 3. Fun to play & work on your game. Too bad we've yet run into other players though.
I really enjoy the course, it's a great entry-level course. I'm glad this was the very first course I played.

Pros: Short rec course that makes nice use of limited space in a public park. Should be an easy play for new players as there is not much in the way of difficulty. And since the baskets are visible from the tee, navigations should not be an issue. It also does a nice job of demonstrating the variety of the sport, with a few wide open holes, a few that make use of sparse trees to force flight paths, a little water and one wooded hole.
Many holes do border a fence but it is always on the right of the fairway so it should not trouble right-handed rookies much. The am tee also allows said newbie to avoid the water carry on 7, making for a mostly frustration-free round.
The course does offer something for the veteran as well. The course is a fast play and very close to the highway so it is an easy stop during a road trip. For the veteran, there will be a few ace runs, plus the decent-sized carry on 7 and a unique challenge in 5. The fifth hole is probably a nags but it breaks up the run of easy holes. It is too quick of a double turn with no landing area and isn't a shot that anyone could probably hit consistently. But it's fun and veterans aren't playing here to challenge their games anyways.
Cons: At the same time, 5 is really inappropriate for the new players that will use this course. Too tight with a fence to the right and water to the left. And while 7 offers a safe route around the water, the water will be on the left potentially swallowing the discs of beginners.
But simply, it's a short course that shouldn't really interest anyone who has seen more than a handful of courses.

Pros: Nice course for beginners or just working on a mid-range game. 2 holes with nice distance. I enjoy playing this course to keep the mid game together. Understanding the course is not designed for big arms you will enjoy a couple rounds per trip.
Cons: I'm one for concrete pads. So having said that, hopefully pads will be installed? Not sure if this is a con, but very few people on the course.
Other Thoughts: Knowing what the course offers, its worth playing It's not a destination course but nice for a local thrower.

Pros: Empty park.
Great place to learn to throw your midrange.
Cons: No style or design to the course, really.
No marked mandos even where a drive will go over/through a playground, toward another tee, or toward another basket.
No length. There's really only toe holes on the course where you can let a full drive go. One of these (#9) needs a mando to keep discs from clocking others on the #1 tee.
6 of the nine holes are easily reachable with a midrange, and I cannot really throw my driver much more than 300'.
The short holes don't really have any challenge to them.
As a LHBH, 7 of the nine holes played to my fade. One that didn't needs a mando to keep a lefty from throwing over/through the playground.
Tees are too close to the fence line, tee boxes are painted too short, and the hole marker posts are right next to the tee. I felt like I was going to run into the fence or post on several holes.
Other Thoughts: This is a beginner- to rec-level course, nothing more.
I would rather go throw in an empty field than play this course again.

Pros: - Uses the few trees throughout the course well to add difficulty to the holes
- Easy to follow going post to post. The posts are facing in the direction of the next basket.
- You get to really practice controlling your drive and placing it next to the basket
- Great course for beginners to get their throws down in the open fields. Also great for experienced players to get practice accurate drives.
Cons: - I am not a fan of water holes. There are two on this course with a few others near the water.
- If crowded some holes overlap and could cause people to be in the way of throws.
Other Thoughts: - Very new so not crowded at all.
- No parking lot but you just get to park on the side of the road which is fine.
- park as close as you can to the park sign then turn right after entering the fence. The first tee is right there.
- There are no tee pads yet( but we talked with a guy who works closely with the course development and said they are doing their best to get 2 tee pads put in)
- currently spray painting the grass where the tees will be. and drop zone on #5

Yes Bro Its True, There Is A Disc Golf Course In Naples Now!!!
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: A Nice Neighborhood course that takes full advantage of the available terrain. Many mature trees, and a small pond make this course a little more than a rec course.
Easy to see wooden poles mark the grass tee areas.
Nice, shiny, new baskets with number plates on top make finding the right basket very easy.
The park was well mowed, perfectly clean, and had an ample supply of picnic tables and garbage cans. Poop bags were also available in case you bring your dog.
It is literally right next to I-75. Jumping off for a quick leg stretching round is highly advisable.
There is a nice playground for the youngsters, and its not too much at risk from flying discs.
Cons: The course mostly plays along the perimiter of the park, with a fence on your right side alot. There are also a few backyards on the edge of the course, so some care is required here.
There are a few holes where multiple baskets can be seen from the tee, and the course is a little tight in general.
There are no restrooms here. There are lots of trees however, and a gas station not too far away.
A pond comes into play on a few holes, and there is a water carry. There is a fair risk of disc loss here.
There is no parking lot. Park on the road by the 1st walk in entrance.
Other Thoughts: A fun and somewhat challenging course that was much needed in this area. Hopefully it gets some concrete tees and better sinage.
* It looks like they may have recently redid the roads in this area. The map and directions seem slightly off.
If you come by I-75 from the north, stay in the far right turn lane, cuz your going to be turning on to Davies right away, and again stay in the far right turn lane to turn onto Radio Rd, and then a quick left on to Palm Springs Blvd. If you stop at the Circle K gas station on Davies, and leave out the other side of the parking lot, you will be facing Palm Springs Blvd when you exit.
