Pros: In a park mostly dedicated to disc golf. Some walking paths around the perimeter. 5 x 10 concrete tee pads. Good elevation changes on the 1st 14 holes as the course is on the side of a hill. #6 is a fun downhill drive of over 400 feet. The final 4 holes are along a deep ravine with a creek. Holes 17 and 18 have fun shots over the creek with bridges that are almost like obstacles.
Cons: As mentioned before, no bathrooms. Difficult to follow in between a few holes. Bring a map. Only saw about 2 trash cans.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course provides a good experience with different shots needed to score well. Wildwood park is about 3 to 4 miles from Hwy 34.

Pros: This course has some decent length to it. It uses elevation and the contour of the land in great way. Although most shots are fairly straight, there are a few skill shots and unique drives needed to play this course well. The par settings for each hole on this course are not too bad. There are a few picturesque and fun to play holes. There are a couple risk/reward holes with a creek that is about 15 feet down to the water. The park has plenty of other places for people that this part of the park seems to be dedicated for disc golf. It seems to be well maintained and fairly clean. The cement tee pads and signs were pretty good.
Cons: I did not see any bathrooms to really speak of. #11 has the tee pad angled wrong. The basket is actually off to the right past # 10 basket. Some of the hole signs are missing. You might need a map as some of the navigation was a bit difficult, like finding the path to cross the creek, but it is not too bad.
Other Thoughts: Most of the holes are in the open sunlight, so a hot sunny day can be a bit warm here. The fun factor for this course is not bad. I enjoyed it enough to play it again. The 18th hole was a fun shot over a bridge and the big downhill hole was fun to tee off from.
