Pros: It's situated in a park, so the city keeps the grass mowed nicely and wood chips on the walking trails.
Cons: Several of the tee signs are completely missing, post and all, and the tee signs which are present provide the distance to the basket and no further information.
The course plays around walking paths and even cuts the corner of a playground.
Most of the holes simply play back and forth for the length of a broad grassy field, uninterrupted by trees or other things to make the play interesting.
There are no tee pads. Throw from turf. Coupled with the absence of signs, one has to either know the course already or have a map handy to make an estimate of where to begin each hole.
Other Thoughts: I think the city forgot that they have a disc golf course. It appears that they plopped the baskets and signs in place some time ago, and decided that was all they needed to do.

  Missing Tees

Pros: This course is 5 mins from my house. The trails are well kept and grass is normally well maintained. Hole #9 is a challenge. You have the risky choice of a 175ft bomb across a pond or to weave it through the trees and across the pond damn.
Cons: The post for Tee 2 and Tee 8 are missing. Tee #1's sign is missing but the post is there. The course could use some work.

 Hole 9 is where its at

Pros: This is a well maintained park that uses the elevation that is present to its advantage.
There is a good mix of moderate length and longer holes here. There are a couple of holes that have water threat and lots of open holes so you can air out your drives.
There are other amenities here like a playground and a nice ball golf course.
Hole 6 had a few trees to shape some lines.
Hole 9 saves this place in my opinion. You throw to a gap about 150-175 feet from the tee to a tunnel lined gap with a pond on both sides. The basket is on a pennisula out in the open. Nice challenging hole.
Cons: Many holes are wide open and don't have many lines to shape. Wind will factor into your round here.
#1's post is there but no sign to tell you the distance and #2 is missing its post/sign all together.
Navigation is a bit confusing on the interior holes at times.
No trash cans or benches.
Beginners might not like the holes around the ponds.
#2 has safety issues throwing next to or over a playground.
Other Thoughts: If you are a fan of a course where you can get in some long bombs with your favorite driver then you will like this course. If however you are a player who likes a technical course, then go on down the road. My favorite holes here were 7 and 9. The holes get a bit repetitive on the interior of the course where you are just throwing back and forth on the side of a hill.
Not a must play but if you are passing through and feel the itch to throw then hit this one up.

 wide open course

Review By: a.sorensen
Played: 14  Reviewed: 11  Exp: 6.2 Years
Pros: - the water on 8 and 9 is an interesting challenge
- it's clean and well kept
Cons: - no tee pads, just wooden signs with limited information
- not much variety in the holes, other than hole #9
- navigation is difficult
- have to throw over a playground
Other Thoughts: The signs tend to point you in the right direction, but there are often two baskets close together so you may not know which one you are shooting at until you are in putter range.

 A Dogleg Across What?

Pros: This course is a simple 9-hole layout with a pond. There is a unique dogleg hole #9. This hole plays 150 feet along the pond and then a hard left 200 feet across a narrow land bridge through the pond with trees running along the sides. It is truly a creative hole. This is a clean and well-maintained park with good parking.
Cons: This course has a broken tee sign #1 and a missing tee sign for #8. #8's posthole was found about 50 feet behind swing. The tee signs are basically wood planks across a pole stating the hole #, par, and footage. These are all basically straight shot holes except for 2 holes. Hole #2 is supposed to be a kind of dogleg around a playground. If people don't play it like that, it can put kids in harms way. Trashcans and bathrooms were also both lacking here.
Other Thoughts: This is a fairly boring course, but at least they have course to play here. The Fun Factor was nil. This really is not worth a road trip. It was nice to see them put this up at this park right next to the Ball Golf Course. If you do play here, watch out for the little kids on # 2 and hopefully #8 post will get put back in as that was not easy to find.

 Cute little? course

Pros: This course was surprisingly long in a compact little park. Since the town is fairly rural and fairly small I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasently surprised by the quality of the holes and the signage. Good for long throws and very forgiving.
Cons: Wide open for almost all of the course and 5 out of the 9 holes were over 400 ft so nothing too exciting. No tee boxes but tee signs were more than adaquate.
Other Thoughts: There are a couple ponds on the course but really only came into play on the final hole. The 9th hole had tiny landing zones unless you wanted to risk a long throw across the pond. A lot further than I was willing to risk a disk.
