A little too open
Pros: This course plays through a mostly open park with some scattered trees and grassy fairways. There is some nice elevation with a small sledding hill and a couple other rolling hills throughout the park to make it a little more interesting. There are a handful of water holes that add a little risk, especially the couple with elevated pins with the potential to roll down into the water. Hole 17 was the most interesting with the pond to the right and a drop off into woods with a creek on the left, and enough distance to tempt you to really throw a drive.
There are nice signs here with hole layout and distance, and they include contours to show the elevation changes. There are full course maps at holes 1 and 10 so you can start on either side of the park and still see the course layout. The baskets are in decent shape and catch well, and have one chain painted red to point the way to the next tee.
Cons: The holes get quite repetitive here, with most of them being pretty wide open with only some small trees and some minor elevation as obstacles. The wind can be a factor here, but I found most of the holes had wide open spike hyzer routes for either hand that take the wind out of play. Other than a couple holes, the course is pretty short and doesn't really provide much challenge or variety to really test different parts of your game.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun short course with some minor elevation and some nice water hazards. It's a little to open and short to be really challenging for more experienced players, but is a fine course for beginners to try out the sport with only a few spots to lose a disc and not too much length. If you're in the area, it's worth a quick round but don't drive out of your way for this one.

nice little course
Pros: Holes #1, #3, and #17 are holes you would enjoy anywhere. There is a lot of elevation here and buckets placed on hill sides; thus, landing placement is important. This tests you're skills is that area. Regarding navigation: the side of the chains have been painted red in the direction of next tee. Sounds like it would not work that well; but, actually this an extremely useful tool at this course; which has been redesigned a number of times. I repeat; RED PAINT ON CHAINS, will lead you easily to next tee. Water holes on the course are nice. #6 and #17 are solid/fairly difficult water holes. Nice tee signs and tee pads; concrete. I believe yardage on #2 is incorrect; hole does not play 360, but other than that, yardages seem to be correct.
Cons: This is a short course. Advanced or better players will need to make putts and score on most holes. Disc course has been relatively full nearly every time I've been there.
Other Thoughts: As with most courses, wind adds to the difficulty of play. With many pins located on hillsides, this course plays tougher than many courses in windy conditions. Adelaide was originally a nine hole course. As an 18, it is rather short, but a nice enough course all the same. I believe the latest layout has used the water the best of all designs. Holes #5 and #13 should IMOH be placed even closer to the pond edge for added toughness.

Pros: Nice course with a few well placed trees to challenge you. A few elevation changes as well. Very well maintained and not crowded. There is a very interesting hole between a pond and a stream!
Cons: There are a few places to loose discs pretty easily. When I was there, there were three baskets missing. Most of the holes are just strait away and not to many obstacles.
