Pros: 18 hole Mini Course in a lovely public park. Hobson Park features rolling hills, mature trees and manicured lawns, perfect for a disc course course. As mentioned before, loaners are available with a box to return them at 18. There is a tee post with hole #, par and distance. This courses features some par 4's and a par 5. There are colored patio block set in the ground showing you where to tee off from.

The baskets are like new minis.

The course forces you to throws all types of mini shots, hysers, anhysers, long downhills, tough uphills.
Cons: I guess there are a few too many wide open holes. Mini players appear to like a few more technical throws. To me, this course had the feel of a regular disc golf course.

I still have to question of how well these baskets will hold up in a public park setting. They're extremely well made but being made from a thinner gauge steel still seem more prone to vandalism than regular disc golf baskets.
Other Thoughts: Having now played four Mini courses (two in public parks vs. two private) I think I like the creative feel of the private courses better. To me, it seems to add some pizazz to the Mini game.

My rating here is compared only to other Mini Disc Golf Courses.

Pros: This was a cool course in that it was a mini course in a public park.

- Great baskets. They are what mini baskets should be!

- Easy for beginners, which is good when doing mini. Shorter holes make it easier for people.

- Loaner discs available at the first hole and a spot at the end of 18 to drop them in when done.

- Plenty of parking, restrooms and all the amenities of a park.
Cons: - No scorecards, which I would think is normal at a public park course.

- Hole selection. Pretty straight forward and not a lot of different shots, which is what I had seen in other mini course.

- Rules could be better pointed out (see: scorecards) so if playing without having locals, you could know what's up.
Other Thoughts: Very nice little mini course that people of all skill levels and interest could enjoy and play. It utilizes the land quite well, though some of the holes could be made a little more challenging. Overall a great little course and I would definitely play it again!

Pros: Course is marked well and you can follow the course. There is a box with discs that you can borrow to play and return at last hole. Baskets are in great shape. Course is well kept. Short and long distance baskets.
Cons: Office to puchase discs are not open during weekends and only open during day when everyone is working. Course could be more challenging.
Other Thoughts: The course was quiet, and peaceful. Very pretty with lots of landscaping. Restrooms open on weekend. Nice place to picnic and lots of shade. Overall very good condition.
