Pros: Decent variety. Several holes around 200 feet, a couple near 300 and hole 3 is 400 some feet. Several holes have some lines required, with accuracy rewarded on hole 9 - an alley shot through the trees.

Tee pads. Concrete tees on each hole is always a nice benefit on a course like this.

Signage. Each tee is marked with a map of the hole, distance, hole number and par.

Clean well maintained park.

Not busy. I saw a handful of people playing the course, and a father/son using the playground equipment, but it was not crowded by any means.

Ace opportunities. Every hole (less 3) has a possible ace run with a likely birdie opportunity if well played.

The water is not permanent. The casual standing water provided an additional challenge that I enjoy, hole 3 ended up being an awesome "island hole" despite having to play it barefoot, it would be a sweet layout to the course.
Cons: Playground. The course plays right through the middle of playground equipment, though some of it looks cool - like the rocket slide, it could be dangerous if there was anybody using the equipment.

Wet. The low areas can be quite wet after a rain, I had to play holes 3 and 4 barefoot, several other holes had standing water.

Small. A relatively small area houses this course, several of the holes are close to each other, could be dangerous if there was many people playing.
Other Thoughts: An enjoyable quick 9 holes worth a stop if you're nearby, I wouldn't drive more than 10 miles out of the way for this one.
