Pros: It uses the creek and trees well to add challenge to some shots. A few striaght away wide open holes are good to practices driving and for the newer player tweaking thier game. Trees located around some baskets and tees adds some challenge. Well taken care of by city. Shade is available in spots.
Cons: Tee boxes are dirt and well worn (read: ruts) Can be easy to get lost the first few times through due to the over laping nature of the course. Fields can be hot and wind swept.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind I have only been throwing for a few months now and this course is only minutes from my house. I have a bit of a bias and a small arm so all in all I find this a good place to work on my game. A few friends of mine don't mind playing it, but it is not a fan favorite.

Pros: This course allows you practice many different shots with out totally jacking your score. For the most part it is a par three all the way through. Most of the holes can be served with RHBD (Right Hand Back Hand) because they have no obstacles. Since it is a smaller course and open, you can practice your flick drive, or test your discs to really see what they do. A few holes play through trees or dog leg, which also plays to hizer and anhyzer shots. Over all this is a fun course to play beginner, and <par course if you are amateur, and show off course if you are pro!
Cons: Trashy, I guess like people have never heard pack it in pack it out. Its what you get for a near city park. Although come to my neck of the woods, and people care how the city park looks, it keeps it open. Pick UP YOUR TRASH, I did, and I'm not Texan.
The course is shorter some of the double tees aren't marked, and the course map at the start doesn't show the where the extra 9 holes play from. Dirt tee pads, although dry when I played, bring mud shoes on wet days. Plenty of dirt clumps from the wet day before. Wind can be an issue on a few holes.
Other Thoughts: It is actually 18 with a few double baskets/tees! Not difficult to find. I went on a monday, after a holiday in the AM, Not one other person on the course. The gully while looks like it could eat discs, it won't.

  Decent Course

Pros: Course can be played in under an hour with the overlapping tees/pins. Designer did a pretty good job with what little landscape/terrain the park has to offer. Great beginner course. Usually not too crowded.
Cons: Two holes share same tee box and basket. Why every hole has a different pin but this one I don't know. There's plenty of park space by this one pin to add one more hole. Majority of holes are wide open with really only one path to birdie hole.
Other Thoughts: Not a destination course. Play it only if your in the area.

Pros: The course uses the ladscape very well. Each Tee hole is marked clearly. About half of the course is shaded. The course wraps about twice allowing you to take a break at you vehicle if needed after the first nine. There are variety of holes on this course. The first hole starts off with a slightly uphill shot through a group of trees about 20 feet from the tee. Some of the holes are just open fairways with a basket on the other end. Probably the most difficult hole on the course 6, starts out witha a drive through the trees with the creek on the left. Then finishes up with more trees closely grouped together with the basket placed at where there is no other choice but to play through them. If I can finish this hole with out hitting a tree I consider that a great hole.
8 and 17 and the same tee and the same basket but 8 plays to the right of the large tree and 17 plays left of the large tree. Probably the best hole on this course is 5. It starts out with a blind shot off the tee. A nice RHBH hyzer around the group of trees to your left will leave you great for your upshot. The fairway slops down and the rises again will the basket sitting under a group of tall trees waiting to deflect you approach.
Cons: The nieghbor hood isn't the greatest. some trash around the course. Though the tee's and holes are marked with numbers very clearly. There are no signs telling length of hole, par, or where the basket is.
Other Thoughts: I probably factor in a little favoritism because this was my first but I really like this course. It is not to difficult but not to easy either. After you play it through once it's easy to come back later and make your way through with little to know problems. If you don't have time to play the full 18 you can play the first nine end up back at your car a leave. Or if you feel like going out and playing just the back nine you can do the same. The course flows very well. Overall and very fun great course

Pros: Its a pretty fun course. Wide open on some holes and other holes hug the forest where I have lost a couple disks. Hole six is pretty fun.
Cons: Hard to find where to go because not very well marked and they made the back nine tee boxes the same as the front nine but there are different baskets for the back nine which makes it confusing.
Other Thoughts: Play if your in the neighborhood

Pros: There are some long open holes that really test your arm.

There are some interesting mandatories that add some technical shots to this pretty open course. Two holes share the same tee pad and basket but have different mandatories around a tree in the middle.

There is a very deep canyon like creek hazard to the left of a few holes but it's actually pretty easy to avoid.
Cons: To convert this course to 18 holes they just overlayed the new 9 holes over the same land as the original 9 holes which makes it confusing and a little boring because it feels like your playing a 9 hole course twice.

There is not enough shade.
Other Thoughts: They should have taken the money they wasted on 9 new baskets and used it to improve the original 9 like clean up the creek, plant some shade trees, put in concrete pads and good signs.

Pros: 18 holes lengthen course from original 9 pins. Nice variation in obstacles including some open holes, some with few trees, and some lightly wooded holes. The shallow water and sloping banks of the creek running alongside the course make disc retrieval easy.
Cons: Signage presents a map for only the first 9 holes and this map itself has become outdated. The back 9 holes are actually a play-through of the first 9 but use different tees and pins.
