Pros: Update as of 9 17.09 Basket on 6 has been moved back to a former spot. Tee for 7 has been moved back a bunch. 7 now has a long and a short tee. 3 also has an optional longer tee. These are now longer holes and addresses some gripes about how short this course is (was). 5, 6, 7 are now the long holes here. It makes for a nice set up. Holes 1, 2, 3, 4 are short and make for great warm up to the long holes of 5, 6, 7. 8 is a bit of a trick shot with the dog leg to the left... which plays great for beginners getting the feel of a natrual hyzer on a RHBH throw. 9 is a bit of a dog leg to the right. it can now be said that there is something for everyone here. Nice, clean park. Good signs and flow. Perfect for practice building approach and putting skills. Few others playing when I have been here. No waiting. Dog leg on 8 is fun. Elevation change on 2 adds some interest. Trees on a few add challenge in shot selection. esp 7 which is now a thread the trees long shot in which you are likely to be seriously treejected.
Cons: No real opportunity for monster drives. Likely a bit short and easy for experienced players. Be careful when RHBH driving on hole 4. Stream along left eats discs but they are likely findable. Same can be said of 3 esp with the new, optional, longer tee choice... it is close to the shrub line.
Other Thoughts: Close to my house and close to a longer course at Willow Stream. Use this course to work on your short game. Walgreen's across street sells discs. Recent improvements make this one better than ever and on its way to being pretty good. basket is now back on 3. Grass will be growing in well soon.

Pros: nicely maintained and setup.
Cons: Course is setup way too short, has 12 foot concrete tees for hole that aren't even 200 foot! hole 1 is 139!
Other Thoughts: great practice course, would be much better if they used some of the undeveloped land west of the parking lot.
