Pros: The course plays through a nice park along a lake. Many of the holes play near the water, and one has a water carry with overhanging limbs if you take the most direct flight line, so there is some good risk/reward action. There are some minor elevation changes that come into play, adding some variety. The park is nice and grassy, with scattered mature trees and a little bit of brush in spots. The course is very scenic for a small multi-use park.
Cons: The course equipment is in terrible shape. Of the original 9 baskets, only 4 remain, and all are bent or broken in some way. Only a couple tee signs are still there, and they are on holes that no longer have baskets. Playgrounds and pavilions are in play on nearly all of the holes, for some real safety issues. The main road into the park is under construction, so you have to drive a couple miles around to come into the park from the south.
Other Thoughts: The course had potential at one point, but feels very neglected. The land and the water hazards make for some great possible shots, but the safety issues and general disrepair make it a lot less fun. Beginners will find it difficult to stay out of the water and away from other park uses here, though the holes are pretty reasonable lengths. More experienced players won't find too much challenge, though the water does make for some fun shots. Don't bother with this one unless you really want to add to your list.

Pros: It is the only disc golf course around.

There is a 300+ foot softball field next to the course, and it is fun to stand at the plate and throw for the fence.

Not many other Pros...
Cons: Steep dropoffs into the lake come into play at almost every hole. Also, 3 baskets are missing so you can only play 6 holes. We couldn't find all of the tee locations either. You have to be VERY careful to not lose a disc on this course...
Other Thoughts: It is something to do in Litchfield, and you can still make it fun, you just have to be careful.
