Good practice course
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Pretty course, especially first three holes.
- easy to follow despite a lack of sighnage
- not crowded, only one other player
- tree's provide a challenge
- difficult to lose discs
- A and B tee pads make it an 18 holer
Cons: - pretty darn short only a couple of holes have any sort of distance
- no sighnage
- watch out for bicyclists and walkers, they exist
- though there's A and B tee pads some B pads are difficult to locate
Other Thoughts: Good practice course thus the 3 rating. Had to work around a few people enjoying the park, not many players which is good. Played three 9 hole rounds and it only took an hour and a half. It's close enough for me to make it worth it.

Fun little course
Pros: This is a sleeper course. It's got some woods shots, some field shots, and some elevation.
It now has concrete pads.
It's less crowded than some of the areas more popular courses.
Good course for improving accuracy
Cons: only 9 baskets.
Following the layout is difficult. I can't imagine playing this course for the first time without a map. If you come here and you don't have a map. Take a pic of the map at pad one with your cell phone....you'll need it.
Not much course signage.
Other Thoughts: Better than most people give it credit for.

Packed With Fun!
Pros: * Good variety of hole lengths from half putter shots to regular drives...
* Has some holes inside the forest/trees that offer great technical lines...
* Two sets of tees offer an effective "back nine" for the course.
* good challenge on basket placement with some on hills or close to water.
* Very good "fun factor" with each shot requiring thought and placement.
* Holes go from open, partially wooded, to extremely wooded, so your brain is always engaged.
Cons: * Pads are natural, which could be a con to some.
* Holes don't have actual signage, so some of the baskets are hard to find. (just ask a local)
* One shot (9) carries over the parking lot which makes for an interesting hole yes...But can potentially have issues of property or personal damage.
* Many walkers and bikers.
Other Thoughts: This is a multi use park with hiking, fishing, biking, and a nice playground. As a note, hole one is located in the youth guild area to the left, not in Hammock park proper. When you enter just head to the left parking lot instead of the right. It could be a great day for a DG family with kids. I found the park itself to be very lovely, and am personally enticed to come back for a full day including the other things the park offers. The above "cons" really aren't so bad, and the course itself really is for the thinking person. If you have already played some of the more known courses in the area, why not come here for some fun? The locals were very helpful, and overall it was a very good experience.

Pros: the last 3 holes would be welcome on most any DGC.
# 7 was very cool as it had a few tight holes that one needed to thread in order to have their drive near vallet parking area. I also love the 2 10" plus mounds of soil that was present in the fairway.
# 9 was another cool hole as you drove down a narrow fairway with a small channel of water near the turn of the dogleg. The basket was tucked deep past the turn and behind a large tree.
Kiosk with a map of the course present near hole # 1.
Cool oak trees, as branches we're almost like ground cover.
Nice neighborhood. And within walking distance of Saint Andrews Links DGC.
Cons: First 3 holes needed cleaned out more as the other reviewer have stated, a disc can be easily lost on a shot within 20 ' of the basket
Other Thoughts: It's rare to find a "9" hole DGC this challenging. Abeit the last 3 holes. With a little pruning this "9" holer could be a real gem.
