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: 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: good holes for beginers or veterans. A couple long holes that give your arm a test and a couple that give your short game a work out.
Cons: a couple holes cross over each other,hole eight throws toward two and 5,6, and7 are a little close.
Other Thoughts: For a smaller park with houses all along one side and a little busier road on the other it could be worse.

Pros: -Tees and baskets are in good shape. Both are numbered so you know which tee and basket to use on each hole.
-Lots of chances for aces. Many people have signed the poles with hole numbers on many holes.
-Good course flow, I found my way around very quickly with no help.
-Gotta go gotta throw is only a few miles away.
-Competetive league every week with tourneys held regularily.
-Land is used well. Pond and trees come into play on as many holes as possible. Very well designed course.
-Fairly beginner friendly with short holes and not too challenging obstacles.
-Only chance to lose discs is the pond but that can be avoided without too much effort.
-No bathroom that I could see.
-Garbage cans keep this course pretty clean.
Cons: -Only distance on two holes.
-Small parking area fills fast but area streets can be used as well.
-No course map, hole signs or next tee signs.
-Not alot of challenge.
Other Thoughts: This course has been here for awhile and it has a good feel about it. The locals are nice and knowledgeable and you will see all skill levels playing here. Gotta Go Gotta Throw is a great shop and is maybe 5 miles from this course. This course isnt very challenging but you will still have fun with it at any skill level.

Pros: Has a few interesting shots such as a mando that makes you shoot a very narrow tunnel shot through a small grove of trees.

There is also a small little swampy pond that is a water hazard for two of the holes.

Has a variety of short and long holes. Its easy for the most part, but there are a couple challenges that make the course fun.
Cons: a couple of the tee pads are too close to the fairway of other holes, making it possible to get hit.

If you shank a drive, you could end up in someones yard (which I have done).

There isn't too much variety, very little elevation change, mostly straight shots.

Other Thoughts: Its an oddly shaped park, its very skinny and you have to give the course designer credit for making a decent 9 hole with what he/she had to work with.
