Bathroom. Water fountain.
The tees are just dirt. The signs do not help orient you in the direction to throw -at times the sign is at the back of the tee area, at other times it is to the side, and yet at other times, it is just off the front. When combined with unmarked baskets which are very difficult to see, and the most visible basket often not being the one you should be playing, the result is a very difficult course for a first-time visitor to navigate.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in the small open grassy areas in a wooded public park. Overthrow #2, and you'll encounter parked cars and/or people. Baskets 6&7 are near a flat area that kids will often be playing in. Basket 9 is near to where grilles and picnic tables are located.

The distance of the holes range from 106' to 283', with the average being just under 200'. Most holes are fairly flat. The two minor uphill shots are very straight, while the other holes all require a minor turn, usually at the end of the flight.

Tees-basket potential mismatches:
- From tee #2, most visible basket, to left, is #3. Basket #2 is to the right and down the hill.
- From tee #5, most visible baskets are #6 (left) and #7 (across). Basket #5 is down the "road", slightly right
- From tee #8, most visible basket is #9. Basket #8 is down the path to the left.

This course is suitable for introducing people to disc golf, hopefully by someone who knows the flow of the course, and when there aren't too many other park users. If it's a nice day and someone is hosting a large picnic near the open space where baskets 6&7 are located (like the day I played the course), your discs will most likely be hitting something that would rather not be hit!

Pros: There are baskets insteat of tones.
Great mid range and fairway driver practice. Nice trees and creek in the back. Some cool local tees
You may even be lucky enough to see some girls dancing to some TooShort while your putting at basket 2.
Cons: Very short, lots of park users to watch for.
Other Thoughts: Tuesday Thurs 6pm weekly

Pros: -If you approach it as the equivalent of a 'pitch-and-put,' it may be worthwhile.
-Good baskets.
-Located in a decent park; lots of greenery.
Cons: -Way short. Only on a couple of holes will you need a driver.
-Other park users in the middle of some holes.
Other Thoughts: I didn't play any safari holes, and I reckon a knowledgeable local could show me a 2 or 2.5 disc course with safari tees.

Pros: New courses are always challenging, but this one is particularly challenging to your short game. There are many baskets between 200 to 300 feet, and because of the trees and elevation changes your short game is really challenged here. You'll get great practice at deciding to finesse your mid-range discs to make a hole, or just throwing your drivers at less power than you might be used to, depending on where you normally play. The setting is beautiful.
It's good to play with a regular your first time, as the locals mix up the tees and actually create 18 unique baskets.
Cons: Dirt/mud tees; Best to play with a local for your first time otherwise it's difficult to know where some tees are located; Cars and people can get in the way, especially on weekends

Pros: It was close when I used to live there, great weekly doubles, nice locals, not very crowded, good place to practice using your putter/mid range. you can play a lot of holes without throwing your arm out.
Cons: not a lot of driver shots unless you know local tees or safari tees, picnicers can make for hazards. I watched a kid get knocked out one day from a disc to the back of the neck. Pretty intense moment, but he was ok.
Other Thoughts: go to the weeklies, great group of people

Pros: Good for beginners, very short. Good place to use your mid-range and putter. Hard to lose a disc.
Cons: VERY short, not very challenging and seems to have been installed as an afterthought.
Other Thoughts: If you're gonna give it a try get there early in the AM. The course plays thru picnic tables and play areas.

Pros: -Shady course, great for a hot summer day

-Tee signs are clearly marked

-18 holes if you play short and long tees

-Great place for beginners or to work on throwing with your mid ranges

-Lots of helpful local players

Cons: -Short pins. Lots of these make you ashamed if you don't park it for a birdie~

-On Thursdays there is often somewhat large doubles groups which make it a pain in the ass to play

-Some poison oak so keep your eyes open, however it's not too bad

-On weekends this is a very popular park and you will be unable to play the last hole in some cases
Other Thoughts: After whole three is bowl hole. There are two extra pins you can play after whole four (first you 'throw down' by teeing off near the hole #4 tee pad to the pin all the way down on the left, then you 'throw back' to the same pin that you threw to on pin 4)

Hope this helps, if anyone wants to get together and play a round shoot me a message:)

Pros: Great beginner's course, hard to lose discs. Baskets are in good shape, tee areas are dirt but are usually in pretty good shape as well. If you play with creative tees, can be challenging.
Cons: If you play the course 'as posted', it's probably only challenging if you're throwing lids. Picnic area can make hole 8 a pedestrian hazard.
Other Thoughts: If you're willing to mix up your round and throw from modified/longer tees, this course could achieve a rating of 2.5.
