Pros: This course is set on a hillside, and a few holes take advantage of the elevation change, with holes 4 and 7 going up, and hole 8 being a fun shot down the hill.
By far the best thing about this course is the extended layout that skips or lengthens some holes and includes several tonals behind the school and in the otherwise untouched fields. If you can find a local to show you where they are, then it is certainly the most challenging course within Vancouver.
Cons: The basic 9 hole layout here is quite short, and very easy. Every hole is a potential birdie with a tee shot using a slow fairway driver at most. Don't come here for a challenge if you're an experienced player, unless you're going to play a safari round or use the tonals located around the backside of the schools.
With the exception of hole 6, the tee pads are either dirt or carpet with roots that are begging to help roll your ankle. Pay close attention to your footwork, or take your tee shot just off to the side on a grassy patch to avoid any potential injury.
Other Thoughts: If you are a beginner, or introducing someone to the game, the 9 hole layout is a great setup, without too many consequences for bad shots. Even someone who has never thrown any type of frisbee might get par on a hole or two. There is also a practice basket next to the parking lot that you can explain the concept of the game and warmup without getting in anyone's way.

Hill climb for the view
Pros: Up and down a steep hill makes for some interesting throws. Reasonably quiet park. Great view from the top of the hill. Easy enough for beginners to have fun.
Worth the trip just for the masses of delicious blackberries in the late summer!
Lots of potential for making up your own course with longer holes and trickier obstacles.
Very easy to get to (bus stop on 4th Ave)
Cons: No signs at tee-boxes. Tee-boxes are bare dirt, sometimes with tree-roots to get in your way.

The bushes are very dense and spiky, so wayward discs can be very hard to find.
Pros: Practice basket before first hole
Easy to follow layout
Map available for download
Not too short
Slight elevation change
Cons: Some thorny bushes if you go out of bounds
Tee pads are not the greatest.
Other Thoughts: Went to play this one afternoon while I was in the area, not too crowded but not sure how it would be during peak season. Holes are easy to spot and there is ample room to differentiate each hole. I liked the fact they had a practice basket at the first hole good way to warm up. Lots of parking in the area. Not too many obstacles. Advanced players may not find this course challenging.

Not a bad course.
Pros: Better than I expected.
View of Vancouver is pretty good.
Really fun to throw from the last hole all the way down the hill.
Cons: Some of the holes were good, but it's kind of boring for the other holes that just zig zag across the hill.
Other Thoughts: It's actually really not a bad course. Worth playing at least once for sure.

Pros: Easily accessible course in Kitsilano with fairly open play and a decent variety of holes.
Cons: The OB areas are thick, rough, and sometimes not worth retrieving discs through. Many pedestrians and locals walking through the park during play. Tees are dirt and not level.
Other Thoughts: A course worth playing if you're in the area, the lack of alternate layout and the fact its only 9 holes makes this a very two-dimensional course.

Pros: One of three courses within a small area near downtown Vancouver. Variety and elevation, great views of one of the most beautiful cities in the World.
Cons: Only nine holes. Near three schools, thus not always playable during midweek midday from September to June. Fairly short course overall.
Other Thoughts: While the prescribed course is relatively short, there is space and a practice basket to create longer safari holes and a back 9 to bring you back to the parking lot - which is still not far from the actual 9th hole. Wild blackberries grow near the 6th tee!
