Pros: -Park seems to be groomed well and is a good park to bring your family along with you - everything is in a small area so you would be able to keep an eye on your kids at all times. Park has Porta-Johns, a small skateboard park, basketball court, and a big pavillion. There is a decent amount of parking considering how small the park is
-Chainstar baskets are nice and steady, although the chains have rusted a tiny bit
-The course is so short that you can easily play 2 rounds in under 30 min, which would be a good warm-up for other nearby courses. Thompson Park and Tomlinson Run State Park are both located within 10 minutes from here, so while it is not worth stopping for on its own, you can hit it up and make a full day of playing these 3 conveniently located courses
-Very easy to get to from highway - once you're in Chester, look signs for the city park, which is close to the McDonald's
-Tee signs with pars, distances, and mando's, which up the level of difficulty a little bit
-Exciting if you're looking for aces because 6 or 7 of them I would consider 'ace runs'. I hit the chains or basket on multiple holes and I am a low-intermediate level player
Cons: -Only need a mid and a putter, except on 5 and maybe 4
-The two par 4's (4 and 5) are one par too high
-Since there are no tees and the pins are located so close, it can sometimes be confusing as to which direction you are shooting during the first go-around. The tees aren't set up in any specific pattern or facing any general direction in respect to the pin, just kind of randomly placed. However, the course is so small and simple that it won't be confusing after the first round.
-There was no one at the park on the Friday morning I played, but if anyone would be at the park it would create problems. All of the holes play near everything else, 5 even goes through a basketball court
Other Thoughts: As I previously stated, this park is good if you want to bring a child or beginner too, or if you want to get a bunch of birdies and possible aces. There is not much challenge to this course, except a few trees that may interefere with your shots. This truly is a pitch-and-putt course, with 2 holes (4 and 5) that may require a driver. It is nice enough with signs and baskets that are in pretty good shape, and it is conveniently located between 2 other courses. I recommend stopping here to get a quick round in before or in between Thompson and Tomlinson.

Pros: The course is very small, you could play it in less than half an hour. It's close to Mountaineer Casino and Thompson Run Park, so if you're already at either of those places you could easily play this course. Short holes make for birdie and ace chances galore.
Cons: It's almost not worth the time it takes to play it. There are only two unique holes and one is unique because you have to throw across a basketball court. If there are other people utilizing the park, you won't be able to play a few of the holes. If the pavilion was being used I would have potentially hit someone on two straight throws, and I had to wait for the basketball players to be out of the way to make my throw on hole 5. The basket for hole 6 is half way torn out of the ground and leaning at a 45 degree angle.
Other Thoughts: It's only worth playing if you're already there or close by.
