Pros: Beginner / Lower Intermediate level course set in a private wooded park in a neighborhood. Challenging for those levels, technical / putting practice for higher levels --> Ace Run!

Baskets - 9 brand new DISCatchers. There are alternate pins for each hole; A (shorter) and B (longer). There is also a practice basket with distance markers around it.

Tees - 2 concrete tees per hole; AM and pro. AM has straight angles to the hole and are much shorter.

Signs - Each tee has its own sign. Signs list hole number, distance from both tees to each pin location, and par. No map on signs but there are no blind shots. When in doubt, there are next tee signs throughout the course.

Concrete walking path does not interfere with the holes. There is a path in the woods that crosses hole 3 but was not an issue.

Variety - holes range between 100-180 feet. The shorter the hole, the more technical it is. There are heavily wooded holes with narrow fairways. The holes in the open have multiple mature trees as obstacles. All baskets are guarded. Holes 2-5 are heavily wooded. Holes 1, 6-9 are in the open with mature trees scattered.

Easy to navigate. Signs point you I'm correct direction when in doubt. The next tees are usually close to the previous hole. Follow the mulch or concrete paths to the next tee. Hole 9 ends next to tees for hole 1.

Clean and peaceful park. Picnic tables and trash can near start of course. Well kept park.

Lots of shade.

Course is short but spread out. Only fairways that come close to bordering are 1 and 9.

Cons: Lots of poison ivy throughout the course, especially bordering the fairways of wooded holes. Bring sanitizer!

No course map.

No benches or trash cans besides start of course. It's peaceful and benches would help.

Tees are a little small. Don't exactly need shots where you run up. I didn't find this a con but some may.

Private course. No water, bathrooms, or parking. I parked down the street and walked.
Other Thoughts: I liked this course. It's a beginner course but it is more difficult than Larwence Inlow Park. It's perfect for a neighborhood to get new players introduced to the sport or to make them better. Great addition to the city.

There is not much that could make this course better. Less poison ivy, more benches, and a set of longer or more challenging tees would boost this course's rating.

I probably shouldn't have played this course but I will try to come back in the future. I would recommend it to any beginners or anybody in the neighborhood.

Pros: Nice park and setting. Five holes in a grassy area with many mature trees and four holes in a heavily wooded, "technical" area. Two nice 4' x 8' concrete tees at each hole (Green shorter/easier, Red longer/harder). Two pin locations (A/B) for each hole. Nice tee-signs with complete hole information at each tee-pad. Nice course sign at the start with rules for nearby putting game. Brand new Innova DISCatcher Pro 28's. Including a practice basket and area.

This course is a short, Recreational level, disc golf course. But, it has tons of trees and just enough open space to provide a great learning course for kids of all ages, families and Am players wanting to work on their control game. For more experienced players, it offers a wealth of ace runs and enough trees to keep them honest! Trees are used throughout the course to shape fairways and shot lines. A quick, fun round for all!

Nice little shelter at the start/finish of the course. Fits well with other (limited) users of the park.
Cons: Not open to the public (for use of the local HOA residents), the park has no water or restrooms. No benches on the course (but it is a very short course). Limited trash cans. The ground can be wet, especially in the woods and during the winter.
Other Thoughts: For what it is, a Rec course for the local residents, their children and guests, it's perfect! If more housing additions like this add disc golf courses to their amenities, it would be great!
