Pros: different pin placements for every hole; cement tee pads; open holes, wooded holes, and semi-wooded holes. this course gives you everything!
Cons: distance is sometimes short on open holes...
Other Thoughts: my favorite in the area until perkerson park is made permanent

 Outstanding Course

Pros: Really well maintained course. Every time I have played this course I see the guy on the golf cart driving around cleaning up. The pin positions are always different. I once played two days in a row and it felt like a different course. Good mix of holes from strong arm open holes to wooded holes that take more accuracy.
Cons: Like said in other reviews, the neighborhood is kind of bad but I haven't really experienced it first hand.
Other Thoughts: My favorites are holes 14 and 15. If 15's pin is set at the close pin it's an easy eagle. It's a par 5 so it's really hard not to par it even at the long pin.

Pros: This course is fairly easy to play and navigate. There is a good mix of wooded and open holes, with a variety of shots. Multiple pin placements give the course even more variety, as well as new looks for some of the shots.
Cons: The neighborhood is a bit sketchy along with the reports of vandalism I have read about.

Restrooms and water are not readily available.
Other Thoughts: This can be a fun course to play for all skill levels. It is not intended to be a super hard, challenging course, but I would not consider it a deuce or die course. Most every hole can be birdied with minimal effort by a pro, but none seem to be gimmies (most of the holes were in their middle to long positions the only times I have played the course). SSA for the course set up I played seemed to be around a 46-47 for the traveling tournament players that might be interested.

Pros: -Wonderful mix of open and wooded holes
-Well laid out: course is compact enough that returning to your car is not a huge hike
-Variety of shots required for course
-Excellent mix of holes:
-Turn and Fade
-Pin placement changes, making it a new course every time
-Well kept and clean
-Beautiful scenery
-Many friendly players
-Technically demanding
-Great hole names
Cons: -Recently the pins have been moved to spots not located on maps. Not really bad, just unexpected
-Graffiti on hole maps occasionally. Cleaned up as of late
-Almost no elevation change on holes
Other Thoughts: Honestly, this is an amazing course. Beautiful lay out, well groomed holes, and a ton of fun. One of the two courses that I recommend above all others. Technically challenging, with both long holes needing bombs and short holes needing an accurate tosses. Not too many places to REALLY lose a disc, and you can see almost every pin from near the tee. Great maps at holes and good hole names.

Entrance is not the main parking lot for the park, but one which indicates the disc golf course. Right by the parking lot is a putting green too.

Not to be missed.

 Excellent Course

Pros: Multiple pin placements. I am not talking about like 2 pin placements per hole but 3-4 on every hole. Plus the pin placements actually make each hole different and not just add 50-80 feet like other courses.

Nice long concrete teepads.

#15 is the signature hole with the super long pin being just over 500 feet.
Cons: The parking lot for the course can be hard to find your first time out.

Also there have been less than a handful of break-ins in recent years. Bad idea to leave any valuables in the car while you play. If you do...don't leave it in plain sight in your car.
Other Thoughts: If I introduce anyone to the sport I like to take them here and Lenora park. Lenora park to get the use to throwing a disc and then here so they can try out a variety of shots. The locals move the pins every couple weeks so you can can get a different game every time you play there.

The course can get a little dirty at times but all the clean up is done by local players with little help from the county.

Local Action: Sunday Pnut Doubles @ 10am for $10 ($5 Round, $5 in CTPs)

Pros: This is the best Atlanta course at the time. Cement tees, good signage, well kept fairways, multiple pin placements. Good variety of shots, dense rough at times. When I played this course as a beginner, I found a lot of discs, but lost a lot too.
Cons: Neighborhood.
Sometimes you can run into ongoing tournaments, so check the course schedule on PDGA.
Other Thoughts: Course layout has good logical progression, don't need a map for this one.

Pros: Pin options allow this course to be the friendly course you want to keep coming to and at the same time allows a monster to come out and reek havoc during tournament time. (well not monster, but definately harder)

Gives you oppurtunity to throw multiple shots.

Hazards are around, mainly trees so course maintenance is a must.

Great people and group of golfers who really care about this course.

A great layout for everyone, pro, and intermediate. You can come here and have a fun round of golf.

Cons: Not in the best of areas. Have had problems with vandalism and some car break ins.

Can get a bit on the trashy side, but the locals do an outstanding job on the up keep and course maitenence.

Could use some added distance.
Other Thoughts: Gives me remeberance of a links golf course (ball golf), looks easy but at the end of the day, you might be fairly surprised at your score. She might beat up on ya if you lack control of your disc, but after a few rounds you will appreciate this gem. If you are a control player, get ready because there are birds to be found at Redan.

The ultimate classic. Has an old school charm to it.

A shotmakers course where everyone can be competitve and have a great time.

Gives you a chance to make that great shot that will bring you coming back.

A must play.

 Best Overall Park in Atlanta

Pros: Having multiple pin positions really helps to keep this course interesting. Additionally it has a good mix of open and wooded holes and nice sized concrete teepads for all of the holes. It is seperated from the rest of the park so you never really get people wandering around in the middle of the course.
Cons: This often isn't the cleanest park. I also always seem to get eaten alive by bugs during the summer months. Finally sometimes all of the holes will seemingly be set to easy/short positions which will really kill the fun.
Other Thoughts: I always see things about break ins in other reviews but have never personally witnessed any in my 7 years of playing this course fairly regularly.
