Pros: Cement tees
Big space
first 9 holes
Cons: didn't know where to go after I crossed the road. I saw all the tee's found few with signs, saw baskets but no numbers. Some basket apparently was gone, I went in the winter so I'm not sure if they took it down for the season, thinking it was Florida it'd be up all year round.

Pros: Beautiful Park! even though there is a lot going on in the park, the disc golfers do not interfere with the other parts of the park. The disc golf course really needs to play catch up to the rest of the park!
Cons: poor usage of land, after the 1,000 ft walk from hole 9 to hole 10 (if you can find it, down the hill and across hole 18) their is about 5 acres of land with only 2 holes on it! I know it is my own pet peeve but walking backwards down a fairway to get to the next hole is scary and annoying at the same time! (transition between 4 to 5) This course already has 24 holes and plenty of room to expand, there is no reason to walk backwards or cross another fairway to get to your next hole. I hate to beat a dead horse but the signage needs improvement. needs more trashcans and benches, it is a very nice park and well funded, I'm sure there is money for those. Also, the pro tee boxes are too close to the regular boxes, not challenging enough.
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what the percentages are...but it would seem to me that more people play the regular course instead of the pro boxes, so why are the benches and trashcans at those boxes.

Pros: This course is set in a great park with varied terrain. Multiple concrete tees for most holes. Decent signs. Good innova discatcher baskets. There is defintely some clever use of elevation and tree lines. A few of the open holes were made more appealing with baskets placed on the top of ridges that had a "deuce or die" approach. Hole 1 was a great example of a wide open drive and tight, defined approach. It was my favorite. 11 was a fun open, downhill 500 ft bomber. Overall, the first 13 holes were solid, well-rounded disc golf holes. If the course stopped right here, my rating would be a strong 3.5 or a weak 4
Cons: The alternate 6 holes felt a bit forced. Situated in tight, dense woods/swamp, these holes were the least fun. The first of these was only 180 feet but had no possible path to the hole on the drive unless you were using a boomerang. It forced an 80 ft layup and a gimmie par. This is not good course design. Most of the rest of these alternate holes required too much luck to have a good shot as there weren't clear shot shape lines and many stray trees and brush. This area seemed pretty new and some tees weren't permanent. hopefully this area is a work in progress. hole 17 was a joke, merely a short simple hole that lazily connected you from 16 to 18. 18 was a lackluster finishing hole. However, it looks like some park construction was in progress and it forced 17 and maybe 18 to re-route into another area.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is worth a play. The 6 extra holes are dicey but might improve with extra brush clearing and traffic. I didn't get to play the other nearby park but it's awfully close to this one so back-to-back course play is possible here.
