DISC LOSS RISK: With no less than 12 holes involving water in some capacity, the chance of losing a disc is very high for those who are aggressive. While it is very easy to keep the disc dry, the opportunities to get yourself ninja branched into the water, kiss a putt of the cage and roll into the lake, or misjudge an approach shot exist and punish you harshlesly for not respecting the danger.
RISK OF BEING HIT BY A DISC: Several of the tee pads are VERY close to the previous holes basket, and often within the flight line of a just barely misthrown disc. A guy in out group got hit twice, both times by the same thrower, during our round. Purely an accident and luckily they were just ground skips into the back of his leg, but the danger exists. (For reference Hole #4 tee pad was one instance and Hole #7 was the other). Several of the holes play near or directly beside park roads that see heavy car and foot traffic. We usually waited for people to pass, which was often, but I could see a risk of hitting someone there as well. Common to have people fishing the lake as well, with complete disregard to people throwing plastic.
TEE SIGN IMPROVEMENT: This one is very minor, but both holes #8 and #9 from the longs would benefit from having the water carry distances listed on the tee signs. This would help players both know how far they need to carry to get to certain spots as well as let the weaker among us know if they can make it over or not without risking a disc and go around to the short tee.
NON LEVEL TEE PADS: Huge con for me as these pads are small, older, and worn down. Some actually serious down grade and upgrade sloped pads which led to quite a few slips in the wet morning dew round. This course would benefit immensely from level, and honestly wider tees.
BASKETS: It is time for basket upgrades. While I'm not completely against the old style Titans, these baskets were some of the worst catching baskets I have ever played on. The wind was up quite a bit so we were putting much harder than normal. No less than 6 different putts in our group hit center pole, dropped into the basket and either bounced out or were pushed out by the wind. The baskets also did not like catching anything high in the chains. It almost seemed like the chains were too light and just moved out of the way too easily. Add the faded grey color and lack of band made the baskets extremely hard to locate from the tee as they blended in to everything. Not a huge knock for the course itself, just time for an upgrade.
HOME STRETCH: After an otherwise wonderful stretch from Hole #1-Hole #15, the last three holes are noticeably bland and meh feeling. With 2 of the three being very short soft par 4's (and most notably no water involved) it just doesn't feel like a strong way to finish the course. Personally (and because of the parking situation which I will discuss next) we parked at the Pavilion between Hole #13 and Hole #14 and played the course #14 as our starting hole and finished on #13 the second time we played the course and enjoyed that loop much more, finishing with a very daunting water carry hole (#13).
PARKING: Do not following the "Disc Golf Parking" signs. It will lead you to a parking lot down the hill to the left of the course. This parking lot is in the range of 300 yards from #1 tee and probably 500 yards from #18's basket. If the Pavilion in front of #1's tee is in use you probably won't be able to park there, but I suggest parking there when it's not in use. Alternatively as I have mentioned above, you can park at the Pavilion between Hole #13 and Hole #14 and the Tee for Hole #14 is about 20 feet from the parking lot and #13's basket is only about 100 feet down the hill on the other side.
BATHROOMS: Last minor con. If you play this course during the winter months, there are no bathrooms available anywhere. We played in early March and they were all still locked up and the water was still shut off from being winterized. I know this is not a year round thing and a minor inconvienence, but some people need to be prepared, so I'm putting it here.
