 Not as much fun as I remember

Pros: --The course is easy to navigate once you find No. 1 (the tee is behind the park sign at the corner of Shadywood and Vine Wood).
-- There are concrete circle tees with the hole number etched into the pad. The concrete tee pads are not the biggest, but they work for how short some of the holes are. However, I came up short every time on No. 5, and the tee pad (circle) is higher than the surrounding ground, so a run-up is not feasible.
-- The course is a very quick play and not just because it's only 6 holes. There is almost no walk between holes, so you could play 18 holes (3 6-hole rounds) in 45 minutes.
-- Hole 5 is really challenging, particularly as the trees and bushes grow and close the gap you must hit from the tee.
Cons: -- A backstop for baseball/softball/kickball means that field can interfere with Nos. 3 and 4. If people are using that part of the park/field, you can't safely play two holes (1/3 of the course).
--There is no designated parking lot. You will have to park on the street next to the park.
-- The walking path that surround the park can come into play on Nos. 1, 2 and 6.
Other Thoughts: -- I remember this as a fun, quick play from nearly a decade ago. As a more experienced (and better) player now (and playing in very windy conditions), I didn't have much fun. I expected to birdie every hole, but I was disappointed about 80 percent of the time.

 Good Short Course

Pros: -The course is easy to navigate. There are concrete circle tees with the hole number etched into the pad. The concrete tee pads are not the biggest, but they work for how short the course is.

-It is in the middle of a nice neighborhood. It could act as a good introduction to the sport to the folks who live in the neighborhood.

-The course is a very quick play. It is no surprise that it was originally used for the Most Disc Golf Holes Played in 24 Hours way back in 2008.

-Hole 5 and hole 6 both were challenging holes. You would think that a short course like this, there would be little challenge on the holes, but those two you have to work to get you "2"
Cons: -The playground was a little close to the holes. Not too severe, but something to be cautious of. There seem to be people who visit the park that are unaware of what disc golf is and will not notice you playing through.

-There is no designated parking lot. You will have to park on the street next to the park.

-Only being six holes was kind of a bummer. There is not much more room to expand, but it is hard to justify going out of your way to play only 6 holes.
Other Thoughts: Being a former world record holder for the most disc golf holes,I felt I needed to visit a course that someone before me broke the record at. DGCR user Donovan provided a lot of assistance when I was breaking mine, so it was neat playing at a place that the record was broken at.

 Great Beginner Course

Pros: Well kept and easy to find all baskets.
Some trees to add some technicalities.
Great for beginner drives imo
Cons: Very Short Course
Other Thoughts: The course goes around a playground. Great beginner course as it is impossible to lose a disc in tall grass or a creek.

 Great course for fun and for beginners

Pros: Really nice and very well maintained course. Tee pads have a big number inlaid in them so there's never any doubt where to play, what hole we're on, etc. Baskets are in good shape. Park is mowed regularly and so there's no tall grass to lose a disc in. No water or ponds.

It's an easy and short course.
Cons: The cons are ... that's it's an easy and short course. Just six baskets. For a pro nearly every hole is an ace attempt.
Other Thoughts: This course doesn't get a lot of love but it is what it is: a fun, short, and easy course. That makes it an excellent place to introduce someone to disc golf or bring out the kiddos for a morning of disc golf. It's set in a very nice neighborhood and is in a very nice park. The holes are not long. You can play through three times for 18 holes quickly and without a lot of difficulty. Most holes are very open. You don't have to worry about throwing through the trees or losing discs.

That just adds up to a fun day on the course. And what's wrong with that?! if you're looking to get ready to win a world championship this prolly isn't your course. If you just want to throw some discs and have a nice time at a nice course where you won't have to hunt for the next basket or endure a lot of trash and graffiti or trees and water ... this is a fine course to play at.

 Beginners Course

Pros: -This place is made to take your family when they are in town. Playground for little ones, all hole par 2-3. Very straightforward shots, few trees. I have hit the baskets/chained out a few times.

-Every hole is an ace run waiting to happen.

-Low DG traffic.

-Nice Tees.

-Fast play.
Cons: -Very short- only play to learn or to throw putters.

-Lots of non-DG use (it is a playground!) My mom got hit in the neck by a Cheetah when I took family over Easter.

-Only 6 holes.

-Very windy.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the trip unless you are new to the sport.

 Do you want to play a little disc golf?

Pros: - fun
- clean
- fast play
- friendly
Cons: - risk free
- fire ants at fifth tee could be a problem
Other Thoughts: We happened to be staying nearby - nice surprise! The course is well laid out on a tiny piece of ground shared with a playground, sport fields, and a walking path. The design works. Even on a Saturday morning with baseball practice, walkers, and kids on the playground, we never felt crowded.
This is not a difficult course. If you want a great challenge you will be disappointed. If you just want to play a little disc golf and have fun, this is a fine and pleasant place to do so.
Leave the big bag of discs at home, all you need is a putter and maybe an approach disc

Pros: Very nice and well maintained park. Nice round teepads and nice DISCatcher baskets. Like the other reviews a perfect place to scratch the itch of playing, plus a great place to practice your mids and putter game. Also includes a nice park to bring the family along.
Cons: The only big con was the parking. You have to park on the street, there is no parking spaces or parking lot. Also trying to figure out where hole #1 started, it's the first round teepad next to the big Tommy and Sue Brown Park sign.
Other Thoughts: Like I said earlier perfect place to scratch the itch of playing 9 or 18 if you can't get away.

 Quality Beginner Course

Pros: The Browns disc golf course to me is quite good because it adequately fulfills the purpose that it was designed for. The course is for beginners / kids and for people locally who may not have time to play the larger & longer courses in the area. The course has DISCatcher baskets and adequate concrete tee pads. At first i was miffed by the circular tee pads but then I realized that no one should be doing a run up on a 200' hole. The beauty of this course is that it challenges players of all skill levels to use putters and mids and practice precision approaches. There are hyzer and anhyzer lines and every hole is a chance to demonstrate going for the ace without giving up the bird. Also, the course is a great place to master putting.
Cons: Parking is awkward because of parking being next to peoples house due to lack of a proper lot.

Very little opportunity to use drivers on designated holes.
Other Thoughts: Immaculately maintained in nice neighborhood.

The course circles a playground and is ideal for golfers who bring the kids. The family could be within earshot the entire round.

Pros: The course was VERY EASY to follow. (If you get lost I can't help you) The baskets are new and the tee pads a great with brass numbers in the concrete. Very easy walking and a few trees to try to make this a small challenge.
Cons: 6 holes all par 2 is well...... just putting around.
There is a playground in the middle and a walking path all around the course. They are both used so kids and wakers are all over. There is not much more to say on the Con side.
Other Thoughts: If I were going to take someone to a course and teach them DG THIS IS IT! Simple but yet far enough to make them work. Great for kids!!! Working on putting and mid-range is the name of this course. You can make it fun by making your own course! Like go form the #3 tee and play the #6 basket..... and so on. It is 6 holes so if you play each basket 3 times (TA-DA!) 18! It is good enough to scratch an itch to play but most of you who are reading this are a lot more serious about playing so..... you might look else where to launch big discs.
