Pros: Overall very nice course. Wide variety of shots required. The park & baskets are well maintained. Park is large and has many activities in addition to disc golf. It is a park to spend the day at...not just a couple of hours. (swimming, water skiing, beach, tennis, restaurant, and more)
Cons: Beware of pedestrians!! There are a few holes in very busy areas. It's very much a family park, and little kids or seniors could come out of nowhere.
Other Thoughts: Be mindful of the public transportation schedule. I took a train to Euro Disney & a bus to the park. I went on a holiday and did not realize that the bus stopped running around 3:00 on holidays. I had to call a cab to get back to the Disney train station $$$.
Find a map of the course on line if possible. I had some trouble finding the disc golf area. Mounted patrol finally took pity on me and directed me to the start of the disc golf course.

Pros: Good mix of hole layouts - some holes situated behind/among clumps of trees, a couple tunnel-ish holes, holes on ridges, doglegs, one "buried" basket, etc.
Tees - they exist (they're some sort of sand/dirt combination - so they're muddy when wet, but still, there are tees...)
Signs - good signs for each hole indicating par and distance (in meters)
Relaxed - the feel of the park (at least when I was there), was very relaxed. Parents with their kids, old couples, young couples, etc.
Cons: Biggest con = Many walking paths criss-cross the holes or are right next to a hole, and seeing as 99% of French people have no clue what disc golf is, they will not be expecting it if you have an errant throw, so be CAREFUL! I almost hit an old couple...
Cost - 4.50 Euro if during the summer season
Other Thoughts: 5 holes (2-6) were (I presume) under construction while I was there. I assume they will be replaced in different locations before the summertime. It is probably good they are doing it, because at least one of these holes played right next to playground equipment for kids
The course lies in the midst of a very large park with a great variety of other activities - beach on a lake for swimming in the summer, tennis courts, ping pong tables, soccer field that can be rented, bike/hiking/running paths, etc., etc.
I happened to be there during the winter when it was wet and dead (as the pictures I took show), but I'm sure in the summertime it would be very beautiful.
Quite easy access from Paris. A suburban train from Gare d'Est station takes about 30 minutes to get to Lagny-Thorigny stop, then a 15 minute bus ride and 15 minute walk into the park.
Conclusion - not an especially exciting course, especially compared with any truly good course in the U.S., but as disc golf is sparse in Europe - if you happen to have a spare day in Paris, it's worth it just to go just to say you've played in France.

definitely in my top 3 favorite courses!!
Pros: the course was beautiful, laid out in a large sports park. there were some challenging holes, but not too hard. there were also well descriptive maps at each hole. and i was there during the time of the year that you didnt have to pay to play, and the best thing was, it was near Paris!!
Cons: the only thing i can complain about was the day i chose to go here, it was pouring rain, and really windy. some of the tee boxes had puddles. i rode my bike from/to euro disney to play here and had made this the day to play, out of the week i spent in paris.
Other Thoughts: i was still a beginner when i played here, so i may not have given the best review, but i absolutely loved it!! it was neat too, there were thousands of tiny tiny snails all over the place!! ive never see so many at one time in my life!
