Pros: Good confidence booster. Aces & birdies galore. Course plays in less than 20 minutes. It's better to have 9 baskets out there to offer some recreational activity than just another drainage ditch running through a subdivision.
Cons: Like the title says: simple and easy. Not a wide variety of shots. Boring.

Pros: -Great use of the land between neighborhoods.
-Short course can be played in ~30 minutes.
-Offers a small variety elevation change, obstacles, short holes, and medium sized holes.
-Not a lot of people play this course
-Each hole has its own sign and basket
Cons: -Course encompasses a park with playground in the middle. Be aware of kids.
-A few of the tee pads are on uneven dirt or in 4" of crushed gravel. Just play from where you feel safe.
-Only 9 short-medium distance holes to REALLY air it out.
Other Thoughts: I like this course and play it as often as I can during lunch breaks from work. Definitely a good place to practice your mid-range game.

 Small Neighborhood Pitch & Putt!

Pros: Canyon Park is a small, narrow neighborhood park. It's mostly grassy, with scattered trees and slopes down into the center where a very shallow concrete drainage ditch that runs the length of the park. This gives the park a little elevation and allows you a couple chances to get some air under your throw. Most of the signs are there with the posted distances. The first five holes play away from the parking lot with the final four playing back to the beginning. Being that this is such a small park, it's very easy to navigate and a round can be played in less than 30 minutes. There are also #'s on the baskets to help with finding your way around. # 1 is kind of a fun little throw starting from just below the parking lot, you're throwing down the sloping grass to a basket down past the culvert 270' away. It's a nice easy little ACE run. I don't think this park would get the swarms of people that would get in your way like some other parks do.
Cons: # 2 & # 3 signs are both currently missing. I couldn't find a teepad for # 5. One teepad ( # 3 maybe ???) forces you to tee off a sharply sloping hillside, I didn't like that. # 7 was a very short PAR 2-just 105'. Make no mistake, this is just your basic pitch and putt. It's designed for Rec players, families and newbies Or maybe as a course to go and work on a particular shot or skill.
Other Thoughts: As I was playing, three 12 year olds came walking out of the neighboring houses. One kid climbs up on the basket like it's a Jungle Gym. And we wonder why courses get trashed?

If I lived closeby, I'd play this course. I'd be trying to increase my career ACE total. I'd be trying to shoot 9 under. I think it's interesting enough to keep my attention. It serves it's intended purpose.
