Pros: The course has benches which were not present at most of the other BG courses that I played.
The tee-pads are Huge to allow for a big run-up on the long holes for those wanting to air it out.
The course is well manicured and can be a very beautiful course to play
Cons: This course almost requires no finesse. Just throw as hard as you can for the most part. It's wide open and forgiving in most places.
The holes with OB can force you to throw with some accuracy but there are only 3-4 holes that I can think of where the OB really dictates your shot(1,2,3,10)
Other Thoughts: This course has only one defense apparently and that is wind. When it's not blowing the course is boring and simple. There are less than 7 holes that I can say that I enjoyed on the entire course the rest were just bland and held little to no challenge.
Hole 11 was probably my favorite 400+ft dogleg with the basket tucked into a corner with probably the only mature trees on the course guarding it. Holes 1, 3, 10, 14, 18 are the only ones that have stuck in my mind at all. The rest of this course is very forgettable.
If you are in the Bowling Green area and have the option of playing other courses that would be a wise choice unless you are just wanting to play them all.

Pros: White Park is a long, open course where the wind is usually a factor. There is OB on many of the holes keeping it from favoring distance throwers. While they still have the advantage, the OB keeps them honest so an accurate player with less distance can still score well.
The front 9 is more open but the back gets more interesting and uses the available trees well. Holes 9-14 are the most interesting and use the available land and trees very well.
The tee pads are very large, there are benches at most of the holes and there's water at the pavilion by hole 1. This is much needed since there's almost no shade here.
Many of the baskets have small trees and shrubs around them to help keep the course interesting.
Navigating the course is a breeze and there are nice tee signs at every hole that list the distance and show the OB.
There are lots of small trees growing here so as they get bigger that will definitely help make the course more interesting.
Cons: Like any mostly open course, the shot variety is lacking here.
The course is long, open and unshaded making it very hot in the summer.
By the end of the round the course starts to feel pretty repetitive due to the all the open holes.
Other Thoughts: If you like long, open courses you'll enjoy playing here. If not, skip it.

Long, open and windy
Pros: The course plays through a sprawling park with small rolling hills and a few scattered trees. There is nice grass throughout the park, and for an open course it's a pretty place to play. There are nice concrete pads and baskets in good shape that catch well. Many holes have tee signs, and the flow of the course is good enough that it's easy to follow and easy to see where to throw. There is some nice length here, with some good long ripper holes and a few reachable holes mixed in. The walking path running through the course can add some ob challenge, especially on a windy day. The sand traps on the last hole are fun, features like that throughout the course would have made it a little more interesting.
Cons: The course is basically wide open, only a few holes have enough trees to make you even think about different lines. It's basically a bunch of open field hucks, which can be challenging to score well on due to wind and ob, but doesn't really test other parts of your game. It gets pretty boring and repetitive by the end of the round. The signage was in pretty bad shape and in need of an upgrade, with the whole back 9 missing signs. The walking path course be a safety issue if heavily used.
Other Thoughts: This course is a good place to work on throwing distance shots, and playing the wind. Beginners will find it long and frustrating, while more experienced players won't find any challenges other than the distance and possibly the wind. It could be a great course as the trees mature, but that will take a while as most of the trees are still quite young.

Just not the greatest!
Pros: This course is very long and if you play it using the walking paths as OB you will be having a long day. There are some holes on the back 9 that are pretty cool but overall it just has nothing unique about the layout. It's just tee up and throw long, walk to your disc and throw long again. That to me is boring and don't expect too many birdies, maybe on 2, 3, and 12 and that's it. You better deuce those if you want to have any chance of keeping your score down.
Cons: Not the best layout, too long and boring. Big arm Pros might disagree.
Other Thoughts: I would not rush back to play there again on my next Bowling Green weekend. Stick with Kereiakes or Lovers Lane Parks while in Bowling Green.
