Pros: Well maintained, wide open course. A couple of holes with water but easy to avoid. An excellent course for beginners yet still fun for experienced players. Only took 50 minutes to play with 3 people, perfect if you're short on time and want to get a round in.
Cons: Only 9 holes. After finishing number 9 you have a long walk back to your car.
Other Thoughts: Would be nice to have a full 18. Seems like plenty of space available in the park.

Pros: This is a well tended, nicely set up course that is great for beginners, practicing parking mid-range shots, or learning to throw rollers. Wide open holes, mininal traffic, and flat terrain keep the frustration level for beginners to a minimum.
Cons: There's lots of goose poop to avoid, and you really don't want to have to retrieve your discs from this pond. Yuck! Errant shots on holes #6 and #7 could (and do) go over the fence into the baseball diamond.
Other Thoughts: We played this before heading out to the more strenuous and demanding Johnson Park and had a blast. What a fun little course.....perfect for a warm-up or a quickie, although the walk back to the parking lot seemed to take forever!

 Everyday Practice

Played: 8  Reviewed: 3
Pros: Everything is laid out very simply. Great for beginners, or experienced players who want to hone mid-range approach shots. Three holes with water. Shorter smaller park that can be played very quickly. Good pads and holes. Well Kept.
Cons: Lots of geese, and bystanders on most days. Very dirty water. Long walk back to the car. Over-driven shots often wind up in the parking lots.
Other Thoughts: Absolutely great course for everyday practice. I go out there on a daily basis and have never had too many problems. The worst is the water, and most times, the disc won't be worth retrieving.

Pros: Nice short course to practice midrange and putt shots.
Concrete tee pads are nice, never really had the problem of where am I shooting.

Cons: Water is nasty, Do not let your disc get in there.
Fence- The Wind grabbed my disc and it barely stayed on my side of the fence so be careful.
Most of the holes are short straight shots that don't offer much challenge.
I'm used to having hole 9 end near the tee of hole 1, this isnt the case. You have to walk pretty far to your car afterwards.
Goose Feces everywhere.
Other Thoughts: Good for short game practice, but only one hole is long enough for good drives. The course goes around a frequently used park so watch out for people and pets. A sign at tee one says disc golfers are responsible for any damage your discs cause.

Pros: - Well marked teepads
- Laid out logically, circles you through the park
- Nicely groomed, always mowed with little trash
- Water hazards on four holes add challenge and reward risk
- Restroom not far from the course
Cons: - It's a popular multi-use park so you occasionally have to avoid picnics, volleyball nets, and a random fisherman or two.
- Baseball fields can quickly come into play on two holes, especially on the long #7
- Wind is usually an issue due to few trees in the area
- Little to no elevation changes
Other Thoughts: I play this course a couple of times each week. It's a nice beginner course that manages to still offer a challenge to more advanced players. Hole #9 is the best hole on the course; it's a dogleg left with a pond on one side and a thick row of trees on the other. This course is a nice alternative if Brewer or Riverside are too busy for your taste.

Updated 5/27/2010:
The tree next to the pond on hole #9 was recently cut down. This takes all the challenge out of the hole and turns it into a relatively easy birdie opportunity. For this reason alone, I'm reducing my rating from a 3 to a 2.5.

 Excellent Learning Course

Pros: Great variety of shots needed, really a great course to work on approach shots.
Cons: No cons really #7 is long, but keeping the disc down out of the wind will keep it going a long way between the hill on the right and the baseball field fence on the left.
Other Thoughts: When I lived there I played daily at this course. Great course for beginner to intermediate golfers to hone their skills.

Pros: good mix of challenges, water comes into play on several holes, attractive neighborhood multiuse park that incorporates the disc golf course well
Cons: one ridiculously long hole (#7). Wind can be a problem here sometimes, discs can fly over the baseball fence and require a long walk to retrieve.
Other Thoughts: concrete tees on all holes, nice layout
