Pros: Concrete boxes, good average distance as well as many birdie chances. Well kept and maintained.
Cons: Can be overly busy on the weekend and local "Atmosphere" can be some what hostile at times. If your taking younger players aim for a weekday to avoid this.
Other Thoughts: Proximity of the playground means stray shots are a no no. Clipping a kid with a heavy disc can ruin their and your day.

Pros: Short course. Good to work on midrange game. Most of the 9 holes are under 300 feet, and most are short enough to reach with a putter. There are 2 longer holes that are a rip to get a deuce on. Bathrooms and open air shelters are near the course, but don't come into play. It is a good course for night golf as 14th street and park lights illuminate most of the course.
Cons: Often there are people on the course that are having picnics and make holes unplayable. It is a popular place during the summer. There is also a basketball court near one pin. There really isn't a lot of challenge to the course.
Other Thoughts: Ewing Park is a short drive from the course. Go there if you want a enjoyable round at a first class disc golf course.

Pros: - Maintained very well
- Really nice baskets
- Large tee pads
- Great use of trees
- Great "confidence builder" course (I got my first two birdies ever here)
- Plays really fast
Cons: - Super short holes
- No signs at tees for hole number or yardage
- One basket is pretty close to basketball court
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little course that plays in about half an hour. Great use of trees to make some of the holes fun, but overall, very easy.

 A fine recreational course

Pros: Nice blue Mach baskets, concrete tees, large mature trees, well maintained grass
Cons: BB court can be in play on one hole
Other Thoughts: It's a nice leisurely 9 holes to shoot on a noon hour or to introduce a new player to the sport. The course flows logically through the park, starting and ending in close proximity to the parking lot. Most holes have multiple routes to the basket with large mature trees as the main obstacles. Good variety of hole distances, so you can use a wide variety of discs from the tees.

Pros: -Well manicured park
-Great use of elevation that is available
-B Tees on #5 and #7 make for great shots
-A Tees mostly short ace runs
Cons: -Seems like a pretty busy park
-Not a very challenging course
Other Thoughts: This course is pretty short and simple. Big mature trees do come into play on every hole. Definitely worth the 30 minutes to play a quick 9.

Pros: -If you are in a hurry this course is good.
-Very easy to find, on major road.
-Nice cement tees and nice new baskets.
-Good chance for hole in one on most holes.
-Large, mature trees on every hole.
-No chance for losing a disc.
-Playground, water play area for kids.
-NIce restrooms and drinking fountain.
Cons: -It is very short and overall a small course. They did good with what they had to work with though.
-Not alot of obstacles, most holes are pretty much straight shots.
-Not alot of shot variation.
Other Thoughts: Great course for beginners but if you have some experience playing the game I would not recommend this course. That is unless you are seeking a hole in one because many of these holes are easy to get close on.
