Pros: The course plays through the spaces between and around other park activities, so it's a little more well-groomed than the south course. There are a few holes with enough trees to make you hit a specific line. There are a couple small elevation changes that add some fun shots including a nice little downhill shot and a couple rollaway greens.

The tees are nice concrete pads with fine grip. The baskets (that are there) are in good shape. The holes that do force a line have a mix of left and right turning fairways. A couple spots have some brush that can punish errant shots.
Cons: The course is very short and not very challenging. Most of the shots are reachable with a putter or mid for many players, and with how open much of the course is you don't have very many real tests. Normally I wouldn't ding a course for missing baskets, but it seems like this is a long-term issue here with the two that are missing.

Most of the signage is damaged or missing. On top of that, the course routing is not at all intuitive. That makes navigation a little frustrating without a map or local guide. The long walk from 18 to 1 and the even longer walk from 9 to 10 really break up the flow. It's a little odd to have two courses on site that don't start in the same spot. There are a bunch of conflicts with other park uses including soccer fields, walking paths and picnic areas.
Other Thoughts: This course is a little more beginner friendly than the south course, with shorter shots and less technical challenges or punishment for errant shots. Experienced players won't find much challenge or variety here. It's an ok warmup for the tougher south course but not worth going out of your way to play in it's own right.

Pros: - Long concrete teepads, you can get a full run up on them.
- Nice baskets on every hole
- All of the holes are ace-able
- Friendly locals
- Beter for beginers
- A little bit of lefts and rights
- Right off the highway
Cons: - Realy Short
- More Crowded than the longer and more fun south course
- Not much elevation change, but what is there, is used well
- Not many tee signs left
- Not very challenging
- There are a couple places that were a little hard to find the way from hole to hole
- Only 9 holes
- Right next to the highway
- Long walk from hole 9 to hole 1
Other Thoughts: This is the shortest and most beginer friendly of the two courses on site here. It's 9 holes and ends right next to the middle of the south course. The holes are almost all wide open with only a few trees and bushes around The freeway neerby makes for a bit of noise while your playing. There seemed to be more people around on this course as well. There's one hole with an elevated teebox that shoots to a basket reachable with a putter, it's a fun little hole, but there is a gazebo in the distance that kind of reminds me of the gazebo hole from the PS3 Move DG game. If there was no one around like a rainy day or tourny or something you might be able to set up a temp basket in there for a longer funner shot.
