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

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. Some were marked in spray paint, and hopefully indicate that concrete tees will be going in at some point.
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 side of the perimeter of the park, so there is a fence on your right side a lot. This makes for a lot of OB, if you score it like that ;) I only went over once. There are a few backyards on the edge of the course also, 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. New players may want to shorten up the tees on these holes, and there is a serious risk of disc loss from more experienced throwers also.
There is no parking lot. Park on the road by the 1st walk in entrance.
Other Thoughts: This course is brand new, but already pretty darn good. A little more than your standard rec course, that would be greatly improved, imo, by adding concrete tees, and better tee signage.
* 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.
