Pros: This course is pretty fun to play, if you like fairly wide open courses with strategic pin placements. There is not much between you and the basket, and most holes end with the basket tucked nicely under a tree or behind a bush or something to that effect. I am not a great player by any means, and with 2 lost discs in the water (resulting in circle 4's), throwing purposely away from the baskets to avoid cars/babies/joggers/tennis courts/baseball fields/soccer fields, I shot a 57. Now, on to the cons...
Cons: This is the least DG friendly park I have ever seen. The park dept allows people to park all over the fairways and almost right on top off of the tee boxes. I don't even know why they wasted the money on the baskets. With all the available land around this tiny town, surely they could have found a better spot. There is a college here, and they have a beautiful ball golf course. Why not build the DG around that? There is a course in Bowling Green, KY that shares both golfs on the same course. I was really disappointed with the overall experience. Another weird thing was the from 13 to 14. You cross 15 along the way...Also, there are no bridges to cross a good sized creek unless you walk a lot extra. Even on the holes where you are required to throw across it, no bridge unless you walk to the road, which adds a lot of extra walking.

Just a strange overall course.
Other Thoughts: I guess if you're here, out of gas and can't make it to some of the other awesome courses around here, you might as well stop. On second thought, if it's not baseball or soccer season, I bet the course is playable. So, there's probably a week per year that you can throw freely. The water holes were kinda cool. One is about a 280' shot and the water is lapping at the tee pad almost, then on the basket side you have about 20' of room. The hole after that plays along the edge, but don't throw at the far one to the left - that's the next hole. I did and as a result, my beloved Wraith is in the bottom of the pond. (Ya, I lost 2 discs here, but that is NOT the reason I didn't like it.)
