Pros: 1 - Big variation in hole layouts bring new challenges to each tee
2 - Great elevation changes seen on some holes
3 - Generally well maintained
4 - Lots of possible hole positions can add length for tournaments
5 - Concrete tee pads
6 - Few places to lose discs
7 - Course is well marked, with good signage
8 - Remodeled club house is convenient
9 - WIND - Much of the course is located on a hill top. Strong and inconsistent gusts of wind add challenge
Cons: 1 - Parks dept can go too long between mowing the course - but it's generally well mown before tournaments
2 - Course can get crowded, especially on weekends
3 - The neighborhood isn't a war zone, but it's not the best. I've seen some illegal drug use at the course (such is disc golf). There was one time I saw a guy do a line of something on a picnic table by the 10th tee pad.
Other Thoughts: Whether you're brand new to the game or experienced, Swope presents a bunch of different challenges to players.

The course layout is likely going to change soon. A vote just passed to build a new animal shelter that is supposed to be built on part of the back 9.

Pros: Multiple Tee boxes and chain positions. Always kept clean and mowed. Great signs at Tee Boxes. There's nice hills and trees with great technical shots. Some nice big rocks placed in nice spots. A beautiful park with plenty of parking
Cons: The park isn't very big so there's a lot of back and forth but I don't think it's that big of a deal. Just don't throw too far to the left or right or you might cross into someone elses game.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my favorite parks even though you go back and forth a lot.
