Nothing to enjoy
Pros: -Holes are short (REALLY SHORT)
-Good field for driving and mid-range practice.
Cons: -Not possible to play if the train is in operation.
-ZERO variety on every hole
-Either some of the tee markers are very well hidden, or just nonexistent.
-If you throw a disc OB on hole 3, you won't get it back.
-There were a lot of people trying to use the open grassy areas near hole 9... but honestly, there isn't enough room for the people who want to enjoy the park.
Other Thoughts: -It was a very strange experience.
-Not even worth a second trip.

Pros: Has restroom nearby.
Easy access off of interstate (at least east bound I-44).
Good for a quick round.
Cons: No basket to next tee signage.
The pars are way too easy for the distances and almost no obstructions.
Shots are wide open.
Holes are short.
No concrete tees.
I guess with the space they had there really aren't many trees around to work with.
The sign is mispelled "Disk Golf".

Flat n easy
Pros: The course plays through a flat grassy park with scattered trees throughout. There are enough trees that you have to shape some lines to score well, but not enough to make it very punishing for newer/recreational players. There are a few holes that have more defined lines, and there's a mix of left and right turning shots. The park space is used very well to make some decent shots without conflicting with other park uses or having any safety issues between holes.
There are basic tee signs at the shortest set of tees that are plenty informational to follow the course. Other than the transition from 3 to 4, the flow is good with no other navigational issues. The tees are marked with blocks in the ground, but someone has kept them cleared off so you can find the longer tees without too much trouble. The baskets are in good shape and catch fine.
Cons: The park is used as well as possible, but it's still a flat city park without dense enough trees to really have any trouble even with a shanked drive. The signed tees are the most likely to be played, and they just don't have very much challenge or variety. The longer tees aren't enough longer to really be a more difficult course, and many don't really call for a different line than the shorter tee. After 3 you have to cross the bridge to get to 4s tee, a sign would be nice for first time players. A few holes in that back part of the park play pretty close to a road, I don't think it gets much traffic but it can scuff up discs pretty badly.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely a beginner level course, and for that it's a good design. The holes are reasonable lengths, there are enough trees that newer players will be encouraged to try some shot shaping, and there isn't too much punishment for errant shots. More experienced players won't find much challenge or variety to keep them coming back here, even from the longer tees. Don't go out of your way for this one, but if you want to take your kids or some new players out this is a good spot for that. The model railroad set up looks pretty cool, I would have loved to see people out there with their trains.
