Pros: -Nice baskets. Older, but still really good quality.
-Nice rolling hills. So elevation comes into play on several holes.
-Shot variety needed is pretty high.
-Nice restrooms in the tennis center.
-Fairly well maintained course.
-Multiple tee locations.
Cons: -Tees. They are natural so they can get slick and messy after rain.
-Signage. There are little to no signs. There are no distances or holes numbers posted on any of the tees.
- Course layout. The course weaves over itself in many spots. Some fairways are shared. Several tees are too close to other baskets. On a busy day, the speed of course play is very, very slow.
-Hole 9. It plays by throwing over the corner of a rugby field. There was a rugby game going on the day I played the course, so the TD had to move hole 9.
Other Thoughts: The course is fairly well maintained with beaten paths on many of the common areas. The park is very nice and has much to offer besides disc golf. It has playgrounds, soccer fields, rugby fields, tennis courts, a basketball gym, and nice bathrooms with showers in the tennis center.

The course layout just takes away so much from this course in my opinion. I played in a busy tourney and I had to hear "fore" or "heads up" about 20+ times over the course of two rounds. That's just not good. Each individual hole is pretty nice, but the way they coordinate with each other is not good. The lack of some type of tee (concrete, rubber, gravel, sand, something), takes away from the course too. I would like to see some hole distances posted.
