Pros: Easy to follow layout for the most part. Many of the holes were fairly straight forward, and wouldn't overwhelm someone who's new. Much different type of course than warner park. A lot of the holes required long distance shots than hooking around trees, or throwing at elevation. Basically if you can bomb a disc far this course will favor you.
Cons: The simplicity can be a con depending on how you look at it. A creek also goes through part of it , after a good rain (or snow when I played it), it can fill up with water. On top of this it gets very muddy and difficult to retrieve discs. Some of the holes are also 700+ feet, but there aren't much obstacles. However if you can't throw far, this might put you at a disadvantage. Finally you have to pay to enter the park which kind of stinks. Being our first time and coming from out of town me and my friend somehow got in without paying, but I wouldn't recommend trying this.
Other Thoughts: After a brutal round at Warner Park, this was a nice change of pace. The course is open and there isn't much in the way, but some of the holes are the biggest that I've ever thrown. Make sure you got a good high speed driver for this course.

Pros: At the start of the course, there is a kiosk with a map and hole info. There is also a practice basket set up for "Around the World". There is a good variation of holes on this course with lengths range from just over 200' to well over 700' and water coming into play on a handfull of them. The trees are used well and provide good obstacles and call for a variety of shots. The course flows fairly well, but I would reccomend taking a map your first time to get oriented. Bathrooms are easily accessable and parking is plentiful. I dont think I have ever waited more than 2 or 3 minutes behind another group, and have never had another group throw on me here.
Cons: Absolutely NO elevation. One of the holes has a parking lot/ boat ramp/ dock/ cleaning station right in the middle of the fairway. There is a state park fee to park at the course for $3.70 - $4.20. On the weekends, you are likely to encounter campers on the fairways. Several holes are very close to picnic areas and shelters also. Can be very soggy after even moderate rains, so be prepared for some standing water.
Other Thoughts: Virtually all of the cons can be easily avoided by playing weekdays or late Sundays. It is the only 18 hole course near town, also the only one with concrete tee pads.

Pros: Nice, long course; decent scenery; good course map at beginning of course; decent variety of hole locations, forcing a variety of shot-making; pretty cool "H-O-R-S-E" set-up at Hole 18, near the parking area
Cons: One of the holes is missing; current park construction makes getting there a little more difficult (not a long-term problem, I'm guessing); no signage on the course, so it can be difficult to locate pins if you've never played; one hole that is 700+ feet (this might be a good thing, though); agree that openness can make wind a problem; pay-to-play
Other Thoughts: The first reviewer nailed this review. I got into disc golf because it's generally inexpensive, so I don't really like having to pay to play, but $6.50 isn't too bad for a good round of golf, and you can play all day for that price.
