Pros: The course makes good use of the land available in the park. It is very hilly so the elevation changes provide a lot of the variety. No holes are overly difficult and so makes a good course for beginners. I especially like #9, a great risk/reward hold with enough length to make for a great closer. All the tees have signs marking the length, par, and hole layout and are in decent shape. Course plays fast and is not crowded so it's easy to get in a quick 9 or 18.
Cons: Most holes do not interfere with the rest of the park but there are a couple. When there is a baseball game there may be problems with cars parked along the road, which is in the throwing area for #7. Not the fault of the course designers entirely, most of the blame is with people not willing to park in the parking lots available and walk to the field. Also, #9 has a couple of picnic tables that people sometimes will sometimes be sitting that are in range of most players' drive.

A couple of the tee pads need work, especially #4 as another reviewer mentioned. I think many people throw from the side of the tee in the dirt to avoid the uneven rocks that form the pad. Some of the baskets are in poor condition with a loose chain or two or a bent basket. Keep a close eye because some of these baskets make it possible for the disc to slip out of the bottom of the basket on an "in" shot.
Other Thoughts: Nice little park with playground, dog, picnic/shelter, and baseball areas. There are even some shuffle board and ill-maintained tennis courts near the first few holes.

Pros: This is one of the best 9 hole courses around. The space is large enought that it could have been an 18, but a real short 18. Instead it was done very well. Nice mix of technical and a few long shots.
Cons: Only 9 holes unfortunately.
Other Thoughts: Park is on a ded-end street... look for a sign on a light pole pointing to the park.
