Pros: The course plays through a very pretty park with mature trees and a small creek running through the middle. A few holes play along the creek, with a couple pins very close to the edge of the water. This adds a lot more risk than most 9 holers have, and made it a lot more interesting. There were long poles in spots along the creek to retrieve discs, and the bottom was sandy and clean making it an ok place to wade in to feel around for them.

The fairways were grassy and well maintained, with scattered mature trees on most. There were a couple open holes, and a hole with a low ceiling and more trees to avoid for some variety. The mature trees make for some good obstacles to shape lines around on many holes, and offer different ways to throw most holes. There were a few holes with some minor elevation changes to add a little more interest and variety.
Cons: The course is fun the first time around, but it just doesn't have enough going on to keep you coming back. Most of the holes were in the same distance range, so you won't really be tested on different lengths of drives here. All the holes are reachable off the tee, so if you drive well you'll never need an approach game. Most holes don't force a specific line, so you won't need very many different shots to be successful here.

The park was busy with other uses, and many people didn't seem to know about the course or the danger of hanging out on the fairways. Many children were crossing the fairways to play in the creek, and the spots they chose to play were definitely in danger of errant shots. There were a couple odd spots for navigation, with poor flow and no next tee markers we had to do a little wandering the first time through.
Other Thoughts: As 9 hole courses go, this one is quick and short, but definitely has some fun factor especially with the water hazard. Beginners will find most holes a reasonable length, with no rough, but the creek can be a little intimidating if you don't want to get wet. More advanced players won't find a lot of challenges, especially after one round to figure the course out, though there are some fun shots.

This course is definitely worth a quick stop if you're passing through. It's not really worth repeat trips though, there's just not enough variety or challenge to bring an out-of-town player back again.
