 Variety, Short and Fun

Pros: -Concrete Tee Boxes
-Practice Basket
-Has some challenge
-Variety of holes, you can use a few different discs
-Quiet and usually very low traffic of people
-Ace shots are available everywhere
-Great for beginner players

This course is one that I often drive past and stop to play a quick relaxing round. Its not just a wide open pitch and putt, there is some challenge. Some play through the woods a bit, while others are more open in a field. There is some elevation changes as well, especially on hole 9.

Tee boxes are in great shape and are concrete. It would be nice to see some of them swept a bit, especially over on hole 5 where the mud can collect but overall they are really nice.
Cons: -Can be wet at times, especially after rains at hole 1 and 6.
-If busy you can be throwing at people because it plays so close
-Close to some houses on 3,4
-Close to the road on 2,6,7,9
-The pond is very nasty
-Almost zero markings

As a beginner the longer holes can prove challenging to get up to, and throwing over the water can be rough. If you go in the water you aren't going after your disc, that thing is pretty nasty, and its deep.

I have hit the road a few times, with some friends a close call or two with cars has happened. After just one or two times I learned they layout pretty easy, but a few markings wouldn't hurt.
Other Thoughts: When its really windy a few of the holes are kind of wide open for the wind to really move your disc.

Over all I really like this course, I think its fun and a bit challenging at the same time. It offers up some easy holes and some more difficult ones that make starting players want to come back an more experienced players can still have some challenge.

Pros: -Practice Basket
-Plays fast
-Concrete Tees
-Ace runs on most holes
Cons: -Plays close to residential houses where the wind or a grip lock disc could easily send a disc into someones yard or worse.
-Most holes are wide open, and the only 2 which aren't play extremely short
- Very tight course where fairways and opposite baskets are played extremely close together
Other Thoughts: This course tries to make the best of what it has, holes 1-5 basically all play together in one long chain heading south, and then 6-9 all play north back to the hole one. This creates many areas where you are throwing near opposite fairways and baskets. The walk from 7-8 you walk directly across hole 2's fairway. While hole 2 is the longest hole on the course it also plays very close to neighboring houses. I was out with a group and on more than one occasion a disc was picked up by the wind and was sent sailing towards the home, we were lucky and they were stopped before hitting a home but it was too close for comfort.
I noticed others complained about the stinky gross water on 5, when I was there the water was cystal clear, but that might be because it is early in the season. A thing to note is the water is instantly deep, so even if your disc is right next to the bank I had to reach in almost to my shoulder to grab my disc.

Pros: This course is always a good time, hole 2 provides a good opportunity to air out your big boy plastic. This course has a nice flow to it, rarely will you find yourself stuck behind a slow group.
Cons: The cesspool that comes into play on holes 4, 5 and 6 is beyond raunchy. It has a stench that could gag a maggot. Also, they ruined hole 3 by removing all of the trees and shortening to 100 or so ft, saddens me. Also, the road can be a bad time if you can't control your plastic.
Other Thoughts: This course is all fun and games until you lose one in the stinkpond. Many aceable holes here, I have gotten em on 1, 3(old and new config), 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. The locals here are awesome, I always seem to join up with a random or two here, the people are just that friendly.

Pros: -The course is easy to find once you get off the main road.
-Friendly people
-Well kept
Cons: -Very deep pond on hole 4, 5, 6. BE CAREFUL!
-Car is sometimes parked very close to hole 5 basket.
-Very easy course.
-Not easy to navigate initially.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't bad but it's not good either. Just like Wirth Par, it isn't worth the time to go out here if your looking for a challenge. It's well kept and the people are nice making it an enjoyable experience.

 Nice short course

Pros: This is a short 9 hole course in a city park, with small elevation changes and one small water hazard that comes into play on two holes.

The park is clean, and seems to be in a good part of town. The area it's in is strictly disc golf, so there's a low chance of hitting pedestrians.

The teepads are concrete, fairly nice and level. The baskets are in good condition.

There are two holes, 4 and 7, which have trees to add some moderate difficulty. The rest are fairly wide open.

All things considered, this is a nice beginner course that provides some light difficulty with trees and water on a few holes. Nice for a quick half hour round.
Cons: The layout is slightly confusing, since it's in a long, skinny plot of land and crosses back on itself a couple times.

Much of the course is right next to a road; you often need to wait for cars to clear before driving.

The signage is only wooden posts with hole number, and some holes are missing the posts.

There are no bathrooms (though it's so short this shouldn't be an issue). There are only one or two trash cans.

The water hazard is slimy and filled with algae.

All of the holes are straight, with no dog legs. Hole 2 sticks out like a sore thumb, being over 100 feet longer than the next longest on the course.
Other Thoughts: It looks like the course layout is being updated. The teepad for hole 3 has been moved closer, making the hole around 100 feet. I believe the plan is to remove hole 3 and make hole 4 longer.

Pros: -Really straight forward course.
-Easy for beginners, not totally lame for intermediate players.
-Variety of shots, mostly open and through some woods.
-Only 1 water hazard troublesome for 2 holes. Full of diseased water.
-The police will tell you when the park closes and when there is dangerous weather coming.
-Good to play through twice.
Cons: -Only 1 water hazard troublesome for 2 holes. Full of diseased water.
-Kind of short.
-The police will tell you when the park closes.
-Quebec avenue is right along holes 2, 6, 7, and 9. Avoid hitting cars. But fear not, there is never much traffic.
-Usually lots of people.
Other Thoughts: -Even though there is a fenced house with a "beware of dogs" sign, the dogs are quite friendly.
-Quebec Avenue makes for an interesting out of bounds marker.

Pros: I have a soft spot for Sunnyside. It's a small course, but it makes for a nice, quick game when you don't have all day to be out playing. Has some decent technical holes with obstacles. You can play this course on your lunch break!
Cons: My favorite hole, #3, was destroyed by the city recently. I aced this hole twice when it was in it's full glory. Now all the trees are gone, and it's just a short, boring drive.
Other Thoughts: I like that this course has a practice basket off to the side of hole #1. Surprisingly, this course can get backed up occasionally, so it's a good way to practice putting while waiting your turn.

Pros: Nice concrete tees and good baskets. some elevation and water.
Cons: Short. Some holes are a bit tight to each other. Water is disgusting.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad little local 9 hole, for the space the designer had he did the best he could. Not really worth a special trip, but if you are nearby it's worth a stop for a quick round, or a good warm-up before heading to Plymouth Creek.

Pros: 1) Good use of limited space. This course is 3 city blocks long and 1 block wide, but still manages to have a fair amount of variety in the fairways.

2) Good warm-up for Plymouth Creek Or Basset Creek.
Cons: 1) The water hazard is just a drainage ditch filled with nasty, stagnant water.

2) They cut down half of the trees on hole 3, turning the former signature hole into an easy little ace run.
Other Thoughts: With the space the designers had to work with they did a fairly good job, but this course really isn't worth going out of the way to play.
