Waste of 18 baskets
Pros: There are very few pros to this course. There are multiple tees which does offer some much needed variance to the extremely flat course. The summer time has a lot of growth which offers a nice canopy to play under. The fairways aren't overgrown so there is a low chance of losing your discs in high grass or getting bugs all over you. The park features, such as the pavilion and ball field, are used to give some variety to an otherwise straightforward grip and rip course.
Cons: Bums and graffiti have taken a large toll on this course which drastically limits course playability and appeal. It also doesn't help that there isn't a caretaker for the course either. Lots of baskets are missing numbers which makes it incredibly hard to find the right basket to tee off into, especially since you can see multiple baskets from each tee. The course is on a very loud and busy city block, so teeing off and hitting a passing by car is a distinct possibility. The alternate tees are near impossible to find without having a person familiar with the course there. The only variance between the holes is distance and this helps a little bit with the entire course being totally flat. The tee signs are also missing or weatherworn beyond recognition.
Other Thoughts: The neighborhood decay shows a lot on the course. A large use of OB makes the course slightly more challenging. South Vineland is much better to play by yourself , with a group, and especially with your children.

play South Vineland
Pros: Landis Park DGC is a simple straightforward disc golf course located in a small city park. All of the holes are pretty much open and grip & rip shots. The course makes large use of OB to mix things up on some of the holes and it is much needed. There isn't much variation to any of the holes except distance. There are three tees per hole which can add a different perspective to each hole
Cons: Landis Park doesn't have much going for it. The course looks like no one takes care of it. The natural tees need to be leveled, and it seemed like some were actually missing. The signs are mostly missing or very weather worn. The baskets are rusted and need a lot of TLC. Vandalism has really taken its toll at this course. The basket numbers are gone on most and since it is easy to see several baskets form any tee, teeing off to the wrong basket is a distinct possibility.
The course is surrounded on all sides by busy roads. Due to the close proximity of the holes to the roads sometimes you have to wait to tee off because of heavy traffic (an errant throw can hit a car). The park also seems home to a lot of local bums which detracts from the course.
Other Thoughts: With the nicest disc golf course in south Jersey only 5 minutes away at South Vineland Park there is no reason to play Landis Park. I like to play new course and so I don't regret playing this course once, but I would never go there again. Play two rounds at Vineland (whites & yellows) and you will enjoy it far more than the stress of playing at Landis Park.

A real dump
Pros: Lots of trees yet fairly open. Some decent decison-making with fair routes to each basket. 3 tees on every hole.
Cons: "New" blue tees are very hard to find. Signs missing on about half the holes. Baskets are rusting. Park looks like it hasn't been maintained for years. Grass and dirt is splotchy.
Other Thoughts: What should have been a signature hole, teeing off from a pavilion down to the canopied fairway below, was ruined by a drunk woman asking us for a dollar or some beer. There was no one else on the entire course except a few joggers passing through on a Saturday.
