Nice Little Recreational Course

Pros: - Nice use of trees, fair lines with multiple options
- Can be played as 18 holes with alternate tee pads for the 9 baskets
- On a wet day, didn't play sloppy like many area courses
- Baskets in good shape
Cons: - Dirt tee pads
- Tees are marked but not very clearly
Other Thoughts: Nothing particularly special about this short course in a small park but it is fine for a quick enjoyable round.

Pros: -Short simple course great for beginners and first timers.
-Actually can be played as an 18 hole course as well. Head back from tee shooting at basket 9, plays front course backwards basket wise from second set of tees.

-Plenty of potential for aces
Cons: -The course runs through a public park. Unfortunately some people are oblivious whether they be at picnic tables off of the fairway or walking their dog towards a basket.
-Theres the potential to play an 18 but with only nine baskets in the park there is a potential for a jam up on playing the same hole as someone coming from the opposite direction.
-Dirt Teepads, I'm usual indifferent about teepads but there are a few tees that are clogged up with tree roots.
-No directional signs between holes/course map posted.
Other Thoughts: It's a small course in a small park. It's also the first course I learned to play on. It may not be ideal but it's always good for a quick 9 or 18 depending on how busy it is that day. I truly enjoy it and wish I knew who I could talk to so improvements could be made.

Pros: Quick spin and easy bag.
Brings a course to a local neighborhood park that doesn't interfere with the other amenities even though the proximity is close.
Baskets still catch and are not falling over. Not the best, but they definitely work.
Technically there are 18 posted tee signs for the "tee pads" that go to 9 baskets.
No rough which is ideal for beginners.
Plenty of actual routes that have to be played for plenty of ace runs.
Cons: The tee pads are just ruts in the ground.
The signs are not super easy to see as they are just little 3 inch blocks of wood with a number on them nailed to a tree. (The front nine and back nine are at least different colors)
Flat course and kind of bunched up. Certainly it would be annoying to try and play the "18 hole layout" when there were other people playing here.
Other Thoughts: This course is a perfectly adequate local course that I'm sure if I lived in the neighborhood, I would walk to often. If you are looking to increase your course count and are in Buffalo then it's a real quick bag and easy on and off. Nothing special here though, so don't get your hopes up.

Pros: - Ace runs throughout
- Someone has spent lots of time with small signs for the tee #s and the next tee arrows. Note there is no traditional tee sign but they aren't needed. I don't need to know if this one is 155' or 165'.
- A good place for a putter only round (i ran through throwing 2 putters to get a quick 18 in).
- Virtually no chance of lost discs
- Course does a pretty good job avoiding playgrounds & side walks for such a small park.
- A nice easy course to bring a true beginner to.

Cons: - Very short (<200' avg) and not much challenge
Other Thoughts: - There were signs for a second set of tees for 10-18 playing to the same baskets. I didn't have the time to try them so I can't comment on quality. This could be a pro if done well....or a con if not...especially if there were multiple groups playing it could get messy.
- I played mid day during a school day so the park was almost completely empty. I'd imagine during peak times there could be a lot of activity to avoid throughout the park.
- Overall - this course is executed well for what it was intended - just be sure you view it for what it is - a short, easy 9. Looking to have a ton of ace runs, great. Looking to get a beginner out for a fun time, great. Want a challenging day of DG....not so much.

Pros: This course is 5 minutes drive from my home. It is a great course to practice mid range and putter shots, the inexperienced can throw drivers. The elevation of the park lends it self to be much more dry than other parks at the same time of year. I suggest any beginners or players looking to practice their short game to come play here.
Cons: I am not sure what is going on with trying to turn this park into an 18 hole course. Most holes have overlapping fairways. Also using the same 9 baskets for a "back 9" makes no sense. There are two different groups of people placing signage to designate where the tee boxes are which also is confusing. One has you playing against the grain (using basket 9 as the basket for "hole 10" and so forth). Then there are spots for blue tees? What the hell? This park is far too small and "homey" feeling to be going this way.
Other Thoughts: Great park to practice. Some people who play here are rude, while others are very friendly. There is also usually a great deal of children and dog walkers, as well as neighborhood kids all over the park.

Pros: -it's a short little par 3 that has improved since the last time i attempted to play here. i was actually able to navigate my way around the now 9 holes (as MattK indicated there were only 8)
-it's free to play and park
-this is an okay course, with some woods. it would be an nice place to work on your short game
Cons: -Several fairways overlap and intersect with the previous or upcoming fairway
-no real tee signs to speak of, the few that remain simply indicate which hole number you're starting from, but there's no distance or direction to the pin
-there is no variation between each hole, each one seems to be a straight fairway. an improvement could be the addition of some hyzer or annie holes, or the addition of some OB. there is also no elevation change on any of the holes
Other Thoughts: -I first played this course around the same time as MattK, so i found no need to review it because his review was perfectly accurate, but after reading ssejhill's review i decided it was time for another visit.
-Today i measured the holes from pad to pin, as accurately as i could since there isn't much signage, but the worn dirt pads made it easier to navigate then it was 3 years ago.
-This course plus Payne Park just down the street does make for a passable 18 hole course
-while it is a great improvement from the last time i was here, it still needs work.

Pros: Quiet park with newer DISCatcher baskets. Enough trees to give you a little challenge. Older trees create some great shade for a hot summer day's play.
Cons: No par(s) on any of the holes. I did some rough measuring and the holes varied from about 150 ft up to about 280 ft. I hope some comes out with a wheel and gets some better measurements.
Other Thoughts: The course has been recently been "signed" to make the holes a bit better. You'll find the #1 "tee/pole" near the corner of Schenck and Fassett (NE corner of the park). When you get to the 1st basket the "tee/pole" for hole #2 will be very close by. The holes aren't so far apart that you need a map, but it would be helpful. Just look for Basket #2, it will be labeled and you can see it from the "tee/pole".

Pros: Nice Baskets,good practice course. i think it is suited more for beginners or younger players. dont need a long arm to play.
Cons: course is a bit hard to figure out.once you get to hole 3 and beyond wood on trees with directions are posted.i will try to put up some tee marker when "i" figure out the rest of the course. I did like it though my 12 yr. old son liked it and he felt a bit competetive on it as opposed to the bigger courses where you need a strong arm to compete.
