Pros: - Mostly dedicated area to disc golf. There is a cricket field by a few holes, however.
- Great for beginners.
- Decent signage.
- Multiple tees for each hole, evidenced by the map here on DGCR. Occasionally a painted stone marker here and there. Obviously lots of safari-type course layouts to keep things interesting.
- #8, is a nice technical wooded hole. All suggested tees have a different line through the stand of trees.
Cons: - Dirt tee pads. Mud the day I went, 2 days after a rain. Really no indication of where the throw line actually should be. I mostly just threw from the grass to the side, where I thought there was the more difficult shot.
- Not a ton of variety or elevation. Variety is mostly just in the amount and placement of trees in the way.
- Just, pretty boring. Chances to throw some specific shots here, but not much.
- No amenities at the park, or nearby.
Other Thoughts: - Glad it's here, so this large populace has some place to play. Just unfortunate that this is all they have.
- Also, it's kind of hard to write a long, extensive review on this course, no matter how hard I try to come up with stuff. Nothing outstanding about the course, but for what it is, nothing absolutely terrible.

Pros: The course plays through a mostly flat open area next to a school. The grass is nicely maintained, and the course is pretty free of trash. There is good signage that shows hole number, distance and layout, and the course flow is really easy to follow.

A couple holes use a nice stand of pine trees to make some more interesting holes that force you to hit a line and have some level of punishment for errant shots. It seems like the locals have a couple alternate sets of tees, that's a big plus on a course like this though it would be nice to have them marked so a non-local player could follow them. I love seeing courses at schools, I hope the kids have the chance to use the course and be exposed to a course that's at a reasonable level for kids to enjoy playing.
Cons: For players who aren't new, this course doesn't really offer much challenge or variety. The couple holes in the pines are nice, but the rest of the course is flat and open with few obstacles to limit your line. There isn't any punishment for poor shots, even beginners will be able to get 3s on most holes.

The tees are rutted out and not in great shape, and have spread so it's not clear where the actual tee area is. Some of the baskets aren't in great shape, they're older and don't catch all that well. I didn't rate the course down for this, but parking might be difficult on school days, and I'm not sure if it's playable during the week.
Other Thoughts: This is a great beginner course, where new players can be successful, but a couple holes require some basic shot shaping. It's a little long for elementary school kids, but not unreasonably so. More experienced players won't find much here to bring them back (unless the alternate tees make the course more challenging and interesting, if so, awesome!).
