Pros: There are 5 baskets left, 2 are in woods, 2 on a hill side and one is on the other side of a small creek. If you are brave, this can be a good place to practice. The 2 holes that are along tennis courts are in the open on a hill. You can set up an interesting round of safari golf here if you don't care about playing the designed holes. You can see the 5 remaining baskets from 1 standing location so they aren't very spaced out.
Cons: Terrible neighborhood, 5 baskets left. The original holes were very close together. Tee areas have tee signs but there are no pads or markings so it is hard to determine where the hole is supposed to go. Originally you could see 4-5 close by baskets and it was almost impossible to decifer which one to throw to.
Other Thoughts: This park is going, soon the last 5 baskets will be removed and re-purposed. If you want a place to practice it could be good if you go when there are alot of people around. Because there are woods and open areas you can pick a shot and practice it. No one will be there playing. The grass isnt even worn around the baskets. You can go to better courses near by I would steer clear of this one. The baskets will be put to good use as Charlotte builds 6 more courses in preparation for worlds.

Pros: Losing this little gem of a Pitch and Putt course will be a real shame. I would have liked to have played it when it wasn't dying. It's set on small, little hilly section of the park offering some fun downhill throws. There are still some small laminated tee signs on short posts. They help a little but navigation is a problem. The baskets are single chain discatchers.
Cons: On about the first four holes, this ivy like vine (Is this called kudzu?) has just taken over and gotten out of control making at least one of these first holes unplayable. Navigation is about impossible. I guess one basket is missing and two others are broke with the basket part having slid down the pole and is currently setting on the ground. They're kinda funny looking! It either looks as though they were panced (sp.?). You know, when you pull someone's pants down. Or they (the baskets) are just trying to fit into the neighborhood here by sagging, with their pants down below their butt.
Other Thoughts: Regardless, I officially deem this course unplayable and unsafe and someone should get in contact with the park officials to salvage the baskets before they all get torn up. Man, it's such a shame when we are forced to close a course. Getting one built is often times such a beaucratic nighmare.
