 What I think

Pros: Plays through a lot of trees and gives you some difficult shots if you get behind them, has a great finishing hole with 18 being some 380 feet long all down hill, only really able to loose discs on a few holes that are either lined with trees or a lot of underbrush.
Cons: Theater comes into play on 15 and 16, near downtown so it didn't allow the course to spread out a good bit, basketball court is built in the course and I have had people come into the path to the basket and just stand there or long periods of time.
Other Thoughts: Its a good course to practice both long throws and short throws and allows starters to get the feel of the game and how it is played.

 Great short course

Pros: Lots of elevation, huge trees, and each hole is interesting and different. A great finishing hole, where a 2 or even 3 stroke lead can be lost. Hard, sloping greens produce long rollaways if you don't land flat.
Cons: Fairly short---if you can throw 350' you can reach every hole. As an urban park there are a few problems with the general public....but this was my "home course" for 12 years and problems have been very few.
Other Thoughts: Unique domed-top baskets, slightly narrower than most baskets you see nowadays.

  My Starting Course

Pros: Well laid out - flows nicely. City park that l originally started playing back in 95. I would call it a great open, tight, wide, wooded, water hazards, etc... It's got everything that you need to sharpen your skills.
Ed has done an excellent job of keeping this course updated and is always a good challenge.
Cons: Like someone else mentioned, the city park element lends itself to walk-thru traffic. But the "others" know what we're doing out there and are almost always considerate of our game.
Other Thoughts: I'm my mind, I always compare all other courses to this one.
This is an excellent baseline course.

 Great disc spot downtown

Pros: Great tees, variety of shots on a very treed course. Not too many places to lose a disc and many interesting ace runs possible.
Cons: It's close to downtown, so look out for some of the randoms walking through. If you smoke cigs, the bums will seek you out.
Other Thoughts: My best friend has moved around the corner from this course from Michigan. Its a great local course with a lot of varied tees to try out and a decent community. They work hard to keep it clean, despite some of the trash that moves through the park. Help Columbia disc golf grow, North Carolina is so close, yet so far ahead in the DG world.
