Good for Beginners
Pros: - Mixture of tight, open, long, and short.
- Fun course to play.
- Many hole in one opportunities.
- Many hazards, but losing a disc is unlikely.
Cons: - No trash cans.
- No restrooms.
Other Thoughts: A very fun course that is good for beginners. Better than West Swinney in my opinion. Needs more updated signs. Beginners may want to skip the 6th hole, as the basket is on a very tight peninsula.
Solid course across river from another course

Pros: This is in my opinion the better of the two Swinney Park Courses. There is another course across the river.
19 Spiderweb baskets (including 1 red painted practice basket) that are extremely grippy. Minimal bounce outs.
Water hazards: 6-9 and 14-17 all have water hazards of some sort. 6 stands out the most: a peninsula shot where the basket is about 8 feet higher than the fairway. 14 & 16 cross a creek. 7-9 border a pond. 15 and 17 border a creek.
Elevation: With exception of holes 7, 10, 11, and 12 all holes have some sort of elevation change.
Carved signs on most holes. Could use a fresh coat of paint.
Variety. Trees, hills, water, and distances vary per hole. Just when I thought this course was easy, I met hole 6.
Signs are carved out of wood and have a map, distance, and hole number.
Course is two 9 hole loops. 9 and 18 both end near parking lot.
Cons: Some signs are missing and the ones that are still standing need replaced.
Only one tee per hole. Some holes definitely need an alternate tee pad either longer or shorter depending on the hole.
No trash cans nor benches.
No course map at start of course. It would really help new players.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course. It had several elements that courses where I am from (Indy) do not necessarily have (water, peninsula shot, hills).
Several trees look like they were recently cut down which may have made this course easier. Most of those trees were near baskets.
Trash cans, benches, freshly painted signs, and alternate tees would boost this course to a 4.
I'm not in Fort Wayne very often but I would like to play this course again.
