Pros: - Last hole is up on a hill, which requires a pretty accurate shot to avoid the wooded area on the non-fairway side.
- Fair amount of trees in play helps provide some excitement.
Cons: - Course is on a very, very small area. It feels like fairways almost cross each other, and an errant shot can find you anywhere on the course.
- One hole allows for a full power shot, but just barely. Advanced players need not bring a driver.
- Park used by many others, usually to play with dogs or kids. People can be in your way the whole time.
Other Thoughts: This is a good course for people just starting off. While there are shorter courses than this one, it seems even more so due to the cramped configuration. Many times I will play to different baskets to liven things up a bit. Can get muddy after rains, big time.

Pros: Again, Mashnut, Texconsonite, and Harr's, reviews can be used. They do a comprehensive job. So, mine will be a couple of short, added bits.
I thought the tees were good. Rubber mats did sag in middle a bit, but, we were there during a rainy day, after a period of three rainy days, and there were only actual puddles on two tees. Even these were not bad, as the plant foot space (end of tee area) was relatively dry.
Homemade, and aged, wooden signs done well. Course easy to navigate.
Lots of sidewalk action here, like many in the area. Therefore, you can choose to add another layer of toughness to course with that as o.b.
I took a road o.b., so, road in play on at least one hole.
One thing, I made note of, on this course: WE HAVE SEEN NO VANDALISM on any of the 6 courses played in the area!!! Kudos to parks departments and local clubs for excellent job of course maintenance. Kudos to all players from area for treating these parks/courses with respect.
Cons: Basket on #1 let my disc fall through bottom; missing under ring. Rest of buckets seemed fine.
Another short nine. Holes pretty plain.
Other Thoughts: This one was valued equal with Danny Cunniff park, with less enjoyment than Diamond Lake Slough and Keller Park. Fairly equal to all three.
