Deer! at Deer Field
Pros: Even without pinpoint directions it was still very easy to hop on and figure out the flow of the course. (I'll add more information to the directions....now) Deer Field is a very apt name! Many of the immature trees and bushes have some pretty hardcore fencing protecting them from being devoured by the wildlife. At one point I was able to throw about twenty feet from a deer who found the neighbors vegetation more interesting than my disc selection. Despite being a park course there is still some interesting terrain, gentle rolling hills throughout and a rocky hill with a star on top of it towering over the finishing holes. Tee locations are marked off well and the basket locations are set up for a slight challenge.
Cons: There were tons of people at the park when I played here and I was forced to adjust the layout to accommodate to the masses of people who I assume did not want to be thrown at. There are facilities if needed, but I cannot put my seal of approval on them. The course has a couple of street crossings and the street plays OB. Some of the baskets are only about ten feet from the street and nearby parked cars, for me this made it more fun but I think its just asking for trouble.
Some of the baskets are broken. The practice basket and a few others had broken welding points at the center contacts of the basket and the pole. This caused the broken baskets to be crooked or cockeyed, I found that they could be adjusted to sit straight for a moment, a little bit of TLC will take care of this. If I wasn't just traveling through, I would have gone to the hardware store and did a very quick fix myself. Someone local or with the parks needs to step up.
Other Thoughts: Between one and two this park has one of the most serious horseshoe pits I have ever seen, if this was a horseshoe pit review site it may be a destination place. The course is simply a shortish nine hole park course with deer. Considering how far away a player is to another course when playing here, its safe to say that its worth the stop.
