Pros: The course plays around the edges of a multi-use park. The park is well kept with nicely mowed grass and seemed very clean. A few of the holes have a little bit of elevation adding some variety. Scattered trees come into play on several holes, you have different options to get to the hole but you do have something to think about off a few of the tees. One hole offers a chance to throw some longer shots and stretch out your arm a little.

The locals have created an alternate 18 hole layout that has longer and more challenging shots bringing more of the elevation and trees into play. The map available online or at the rec center makes it pretty easy to follow either layout.
Cons: Without the map it can be a little tricky to follow the original 9 hole layout in a couple spots, and you'd never figure out the unmarked alternates. The tees are pretty bad, rutted out dirt spots that aren't level and don't provide a good tee surface. Several of them show wear and compaction around the current tee area, the ruts are only going to expand as people throw from behind or next to the current spots.

There are a few conflicts with other park uses, on a busy day you might have to skip some holes or avoid people picnicking or using the other park features. The alternate 18 creates even more conflicts, both with other park uses and with other holes. When I played, there were only two groups on the course and we still ran into each other on three different holes. On a busier day with people playing the alternates it would get pretty messy.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course very approachable with no chance of losing discs, reasonable lengths and little to no punishment for errant drives. More experienced players won't find a ton of challenge, though there are some better shots from the alternates. It's a fun quick round but nothing to go out of your way to play.

Pros: Well maintained. Signs on every hole. Easy to navigate. Good variety of wide open and lightly wooded holes. Some elevation changes. Very friendly and helpful locals. Shade on most holes. Practice basket. Uncrowded.
Cons: Grass tees. Short course except for #9 (570 ft). Park is used by non-golfers, so people sitting in the fairway is common. Can be very hot and windy.

Other Thoughts: Well worth a stop if you're passing by. Simple holes with enough challenge to be interesting. Fun for both novice and advanced players.

 Small (but fun) Community Course

Pros: Baskets-All in great shape
Signs-each tee is marked with permanent sign
Parking-plenty of parking
Landscape-Entire course in grass, lots of mature trees around
Layout- No bottlenecks on the course. Tricky shots make use of this park
"Putting Green" tee on course right next to parking lot.
Amenities- Sign at hole 1 says discs are available for rent at the racquetball center.

Fun little course of short, tricky holes. I've played it twice and only seen one other group of disc golfers each time.
Cons: Pads- No tee pads, concrete or otherwise.
Distance- Very short holes (except #9).
Obstacles- the park can get crowded and you may have to alter your shots to avoid people (ie. volleyball court on hole 6, picnic tables on hole 7)
Holes- Only 9
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little course with some tricky shots around trees and can be made even trickier by playing certain lines out of bounds. The first six are all about accuracy on short shots, the last three open up for a little more arm.
The course would definitely benefit from the addition of tee pads, but the current tee boxes are flat and even enough that it's not such a nuisance.
In the evening or on weekends you'll probably spend some time waiting for pedestrians, families, and other non-golfers on the course.
Probably a bore for "grip it and rip it" disc golfers, but a quick fix if you like tight shots and short courses.
