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.

Pros: This course is very open and allows you to let rip on quite a few holes. However there are a few good skill shots in and around some massive trees that get thicker towards the back 9. Overall a very good course, just be careful where you throw on the back 4! You may just end up in a huge ravine with a shallow creek.

signs and directions are very nice, with people's names and dates of their aces on the back of the metal signs.
Cons: -not a whole lot of skill shots like you get in highly wooded courses. But if that's not your cup of tea, then this course is for you.
