Pros: It's good 9 holes course to work on your game in a nice park setting in a great location. Offers a good change in pace to the other 9 holers in town b/c it's longer and decent lines...not too techincal and not too open.
Cons: Only 9 holes otherwise I'd give it a 3 to 3.5.
Soon will be cut in half by a major road and will have to be redesigned
Other Thoughts: If your in town and need to play a quick round where you go ahead and huk a few then it's a good place to do it.

Pros: Nice clean park.

Beginner friendly yet more advanced players will find some challenges here. A great place to learn to play.

Most fairways are very open with the pins protected by a few trees.

A nice mix of moderately long and short holes.
A great place to work on your distance. All fairways are maintained 'city park' grass. Very roller-friendly.

Course is rarely crowded. Rounds go by fast.

UPDATE: After a couple of years of the course being abbreviated/forgotten due to the road construction and vandalism the course is back up to full strength! If you are a local and have forgotten about this course it is ready to play again. Two new holes to replace the ones lost due to the overpass. New baskets to replace the stolen ones.
Cons: Openness of most of the holes means most experienced players will have no trouble setting up birdie putts.

Park can get crowded with non-golfers so watch for other users.

Other Thoughts: If you're in the area and don't have much time this is a decent course to stop and play. If you're looking for a real challenge and have some time head on out to Hart Park and play the two awesome courses out there.
