Pros: It's close to grandmas house.playground for the young kids.
Cons: Seems like every hole is on the side of a hill.if the gods will it your disc will land and not roll 100 feet from the basket.
Other Thoughts: Very frustrating course. A great tee shot that hits the post should never end up rolling 75 feet down the hill

 Recreational Course With Some Fun Throws!

Pros: This is just your basic little neighborhood course that plays around a ballfield and a reservoir. Because most of it is hilly, there are some fun, short but challenging throws to be had. Each hole has a short cement tee pad (you really don't need a longer approach here) and a extra solid post indicating the hole #. There are two sets of tees, the longer set usually add 10-20 ft. to the hole. The longest hole is a 286 ft. open uphill shot to a basket that sits in the middle of the field. The course designer did the best with what he to work with on this 8.6 acre site.
Cons: There is a one minor design flaw and one major design flaw. The minor flaw is that holes #1 and #10 (this is a 10 hole course) play into the two ballfields. I was told this is sometimes a problem during baseball season. The major problem that I see is that #'s 3, 5, and 7 all border on the park boundary fence next to private homes. On #3, my drive hit a tree and bounced over the 6 ft. chain link fence. I couldn't reach it with a stick so had to climb over the fence to retrieve it. # 5 is worse. A new home is being built on the right side of fairway. The house is very, very close to the park boundary fence and many discs will either anhyser over this fence or hit the trees and carom over. I hope these are understanding neighbors and I hope the golfers treat them with the utmost respect. It's a problem waiting to happen.
Other Thoughts: Too often I hear courses like this one put down by the disc golfing community. But when I left today, there were two groups playing. The first was two junior high boys. The second was two adult men, beginners, along with a seven year old. This course was perfect for them. It'll be a while before they're all ready for DeLaveaga.
