Pros: Tight shots hone your finesse game.Multilple pin placements showing up on more and more holes.Nice mix of anhyzer and hyzer holes. Two over the water holes.
Cons: Back 10 holes share sections with a park nature trail,so you may encounter some folks out for a stroll, who are oblivious to the course.Hole 7 tee pad is difficult to find,(walk staight across the park rd from basket 6, and look to your right when you get to the woods.) You have to back track toward # 6 basket to get to # 8 tee pad. Will have standing water throughout during the Fla rainy season.
Other Thoughts: I enjoy playing the course due to the variety of shots I encounter during the round.Yes it does have standing water, but only during the rainy season in FL. I played it almost all Thanksgiving weekend and it was bone dry.Please be watchful of water moccassins. As Nivek9 pointed out, alligators have been seen. Mostly small ones, but the ocassional 10 footer may be lurking so use caution when fishing that disc out of the water. From what I have been told,when this course first went in, the Park was not at all interested in listening to the designers. "this is where your putting the hole" was the parks attitude. So that's why some of the quirks on the course exist.

Pros: Short but challenging course with lots of different shot techniques necessary to conquer, good mix of woods and open area holes. Several challenging water holes. Two new additional holes (hole 11A & B). Usually well manicured.
Cons: Mosquitos are out of control in the summer, drainage is an issue with heavy rains.
Other Thoughts: I play this course about 3 times a week. In the summer, heavy duty DEET bugspray is a must... the mosquitos will swarm you and eat you alive otherwise. The drainage on the course is not good, and there is a lot of standing water after heavy rains.
The longest hole is probably around 400 - 450 feet.
If you can brave it, this is a great course with lots to offer. As a single you can complete it in less than an hour.

F Burton Park Cocoa by Nivek9
Pros: Lots of fun technical shots. You might see an alligator or two if you look hard enough. Holes that challenge your drive as well as your finess and short game.
Cons: One odd switchback walk but not as bad as other courses I've seen. Need a course map or a guide the first time you play. Don't go in the water.
Other Thoughts: One of the nicest courses on the Atlantic side of FL that I've played..
