Pros: The course plays through a small city park with great grass and nice mature trees. There are lots of nice elevation changes that are used pretty well. There are tricky uphill shots and some fun downhill shots. A few of the pins are in spots that offer some rollaway potential adding some difficulty to the short game.

There is decent distance variety, with some short reachable holes, and some longer shots that stretch your arm out a little. A few of the shots have tighter lines that force more technical line shaping, and there are some nice low ceilings to navigate.
Cons: The layout is a bit of a safety nightmare. The baskets are shared and the holes all cross over other fairways, tees and baskets. Just about every single shot risks hitting someone on another hole. This park would have made for a really nice 9 hole course, and instead 18 holes were crammed in.

The crowded and crossing layout also makes for some navigation issues. There are always several tees around, so it takes some time to figure out which is the correct one especially with a couple missing signs. There are also many baskets visible from each tee, so it can be a little unclear on where to throw (or if you're really supposed to throw right over 2 other baskets to get to the correct one).
Other Thoughts: This would have been a fantastic park to install a 9 hole course with a beginner friendly set of tees and a more challenging set. Instead, there's a very unsafe layout that crams too many holes in too small a space.

Beginners will find the shots here challenging, but there isn't too much punishment for errant shots so it won't be too frustrating. More experienced players will find some really nice challenges on some of the holes, along with some easy birdies. If you can play this course when nobody else is using the park it's a fun round, otherwise be ready to wait and ready to duck.
