Nice signs and concrete teepads at each hole. Fairly natural flow, easy for a first-time visitor to navigate, even w/o a map. Decent mixture of open and wooded holes, many moderate elevation changes.
Located in very nice, multi-purpose park with bathrooms and waterfountains near tee #1/basket #18.
Being a multi-purpose park, you'll have multi-users there, some of which will be crossing your path on holes 1-6.
Open holes (which do include some trees to deal with) 1-6, 17-18 have a distance range of 180'-290', average being 240'. Wooded holes 7-16 have a distance range of 120'-175', average being 150'.
- Park near bathroom just before tennis courts, tee #1 is just below far back corner of these courts.
- First three holes all go in the same direction, down and across the slope.
- Hole 4, make a hard right, nearly doubling back on yourself. #5 flows in the same direction.
- Hole #6, turn left - you'll be throwing across the hillside, softball field to your left, other parking lot to your right.
- Following wooded-holes 7-16 is straightforward.
- #17 is just outside the woods, to the left, then cross the drive for #18 and throw a hard, but not long, left, leaving you near the bathrooms and parking lot.
This course would be very good for beginners - the holes are on the short side, the wooded holes, except for #16, have fairly wide throwing paths, and there is minimal chance to lose a disc - no thick underbrush. Experienced players can have fun working on their approach game and going for birdies.

Pros: Good course for the beginner, or for casual rounds for the more advanced. Scenic, good amenities, easy access.
Cons: Rather short, too many holes adjacent to walkways and other park facilities.
Other Thoughts: Peaks View is a fine example of a recreational course. Set in a large park, it has a good mix of open and wooded holes, concrete tees and signage throughout.
The principal problem with this course is it's length. The course is shoehorned in among the other park facilities, for much of it's length, and consequently the holes are relatively short, and play close to paved walkways, pavilions, and other playing fields. That said, it's quite a bit of fun- something for everyone, except possibly the big arm crowd. The open holes are dotted with trees, and the wooded holes, though short, are challenging. None of the fairways are terribly restrictive, but it may take a few throws to find the best route to a birdie. Since it only takes about 35 minutes to play, plan on going through at least twice.
The beginner will enjoy the course, without being too frustrated, and the more advanced player may well feel that every hole can be birdied, and many aced.
