Pros: The grounds here were well mowed.
This course has a good mix of moderate and longer holes.
3 was my favorite hole because it was downhill and had a somewhat protected basket.
This would be a good place to work on your game without fear of losing a disc.
Also this would be a good place to work on your wind game.
Cons: This course is very open. There isn't a whole lot of variety on many of the holes. Be careful on #1 not to hit any of the parked cars up by the buildings. Also on #8 there is a sidewalk that comes into play so be careful here as well.
The walk between a few baskets and tees slows the flow down.
#4's tee marker was thrown into the trees down by the creek. For a first timer playing this hole without the sign being in the correct position it was very confusing. I hope they can fix the missing sign issues to make playing this course more enjoyable. This happened again on #7 and I never did find the sign for that hole.
#5's tee marker was uprooted and propped up by a tree.
#5's basket is too close to #6's tee if this course were to get crowded this is an accident waiting to happen.
#9's tee marker was laying on the ground upon my visit.
Other Thoughts: At one time this looks like it was a decent beginner/entry level course. I don't know if vandalism has taken its toll on the signage here or what, sad really that people can't respect something that is free to the public.
I feel that if there were a few holes that incorporated the trees that were by the creek it would spice this course up a lot. Even if they were to fix the sign issues and plant some trees on over half of the course it would make for more interesting disc golf in my opinion.
As it is its just too wide open and confusing at times because of the signage issues. Not a destination course by any stretch.

Pros: The course has a few long shots and it is on a nice little area and park. That's about all I can say for this course.
Cons: Signs at the tees (bad tee boxes/no tee boxes) are available on about 6 out of the total 9 holes. Not only that but the distances claimed are usually off (specifically hole 6 as it claims to be 250' or so and it actually plays over 350'). Hole 5 and 7 haven't any tee box markers or signs. Furthermore, the just about every basket has the hole number on it but they facing away from their respective tee box so they are pretty much irrelevant because you see it after your disc is in the basket, so you could actually play towards the wrong basket. The worst part to this little course is that it is in the open on a very windy spot. Winds change drastically and quickly at random, making actual skilled throws redundant as they can be thrown aside like ragdolls. Also, the wind will kill putts that are 10 ft out (or closer). Thus, not only do you somehow have to get very close to the hole on a drive, you also need the wind to die down so you can putt. Makes this course very unfun.
Other Thoughts: Don't play this course as it will not challenge or improve your game. If you must play this sad excuse of a course, then just use it as practice/warm up for Duncan Lake's DGC.
