Pros: Nice signage - including next tee signs
Multiple tee's and pin placements
Good flow of open to wooded shots
Water comes into play on a couple holes
Cons: The concrete pads are a bit short.
Long tee's can be difficult to locate
Course has many holes involving park traffic
Other Thoughts: As good as this course is, it should have more disc golfers on it. It is rarely busy. Only once out of several visits have I had to wait or deal with golfers. That one time was due to the local club playing doubles.
This course has varying length's. There are plenty of ace runs with distance shots mixed in. The long tee's provide some real nice bomber shots, including some improved elevation. You will need short, mid, fairway and distance drivers for this course.
There is a good mix of right, left and strait shots.
The elevation is OK at best. If not for a couple holes in the back nine, the elevation (or lack thereof) would be a con.
I appreciate that you start the first couple holes in the open, then you play a few tight holes in the woods, then you play the next few out in the open, then you weave back into the woods, then the majority of the back nine is open. It's a nice flow.
There are a couple long walks between holes, especially before hole 5. The "next tee" signage is pretty good though, so it shouldn't be an issue...just be aware.
The hole layout improved from when I played last year. Particularly holes 5 and 6 have improved lines.
The back nine, though it has better elevation, is also subject to local traffic. These holes play along side a walking path. Walkers, joggers and bikers are a constant issue. Also, the last 4 holes play basically in neighborhood backyards. There are a couple tricky pin placements though...including water and roll away greens.

Pros: -alternate pin positions make me think "awe i wish the pin was in this spot" (hole 10 specifically)
-concrete pads (short tee only)
-long pads add more difficulty
-awesome baskets, and awesome signs A+ on the signs
-good "next tee" signs assisting in good flow (loops around back to parking lot)
-locals were nice and helped us find the main parking lot
-nice mix of shot types and distances, good mix of wooded and open (although more open holes)
-not busy with disc golfers, park is mostly used for running/walking path or soccer games
-one elevated pin, which is always fun and creates more of a challenge
-nice bathrooms at parking lot (not open in winter)
Cons: -loonnnnnnnggg walks between holes
-be careful of intense thorn trees on back nine!
-gps navigation will take you to smaller parking lot far west of hole one.
-walking paths are everywhere, could get crowded with walkers/runners
-some holes run very close to residential area
-not very difficult
Other Thoughts: -river creates a challenge on some holes
-hole #5 is probably amazing in the summertime
this course has a very different feel then other courses, fairly new, this course deserves a better following.

Pros: Nice Variety of Short and Long Holes. Also, has mostly open holes with a few in the woods. Plays better the second time around when you know where you are going. Baskets are in good shape and almost all holes have concrete tee pads. Park is pretty with a river running through it.
Cons: Hard to find first hole. Does not have a course map to know layout for first timers. Several long holes that demand big drives. A few blind holes which have problems with walkers. Seems to favor backhand players more
Other Thoughts: Good course that will challenge your long and short game. Once you know where you are going, a pleasant experience.

Pros: Good variety of long/short and wooded/open holes; clean course; multiple pin locations; concrete front pads; water comes in to play; long pads add significant challenge, and will definitely change your score; friendly locals
Cons: Can be difficult first time to find some holes (follow the gravel path under the bridge after hole two, go left into woods shortly after the overpass; cross gravel path and walk a couple hundred yards for hole 5; keep walking straight after hole 12, about 300 yards); depending on pin location, slightly favors RHBH throws, making it a "easier" course; a lot of joggers/bike riders, and some along blind holes
Other Thoughts: All in all it is a good course. This may not be a course to plan a road trip around, but it is definitely worth a drive. If nothing else, it will pull a lot of shots out of your bag, but rarely will you just bomb one out there (maybe on a couple holes) from concrete pads. A lot of the holes require placement over power, which is nice, especially for those who can't throw as far.

Pros: Nice variety of holes and many different challenges throughout the coarse. It has nice use of the small river along several holes. Available bathrooms and picnic area.
Cons: There are no signs as to where hole one starts form the parking lot. The overall layout is poor as many gaps from one hole to the next are very, very long and little information as to where to go next. The coarse needs a lot of clean-up as many fairways and greens are very rough or muddy. Some of this is due to construction at this time. Due to the river along the coarse the bug population is high so bring your repellent.
Other Thoughts: It's an Interesting coarse but I feel it needs a lot of refining to be one I would play often.

Beware of hole destruction from pipeline construction
Nicely mowed green grass on some holes. Some pretty good holes in the woods. There are moderate elevation changes on a few holes. You can see a creek on a few holes, but it doesn't come into play.
*There is major construction on a pipeline that has ripped up holes for the length of the course. Holes 1, 16, 18 were destroyed when I played there. This was very frustrating!
The directions to the course were very bad, so I started out frustrated when I finally found it.
There are tons of safety issues on 8 of the 15 existing holes from proximity to ball fields and other tees, blind shots over walking paths, houses bordering the fairways...
There are Long tee lengths listed on the tee signs, but I never found any.
Most of the holes are flat.
There's a very long walk to tee 10 and to tee 13.
The next tees can be difficult to find, so pay close attention to the directions on the tee signs.
There's loud highway noise from Hwy 33 that passes right over the course.
Very thick rough in some places.
Course Level = White (most suitable for Intermediate players rated 875-925.)
I was in a cranky mood when I finally got to the end and just glad to be done. I'd suggest that you not go here until the construction is finished and the missing holes are put back in. Even then, you'll still have lots of potential safety issues to watch out for.
