Pros: The course plays through a mostly flat private park with two small elevation changes that come into play. Two holes play down small hills, making for some fun ace runs. A few holes bring some trees into play, and one hole that plays across a dry creekbed with a 10 foot dropoff if you miss your line. There are a couple holes that make you shape a line a little to have a run at the basket. There are lights at many of the tees and pins, we didn't play at night but it's cool that they are set up for that. This would be a nice place for a family picnic or other event, with the disc golf course as a bonus activity.
Cons: The course itself is pretty short and basic. Several of the holes are open, short ace runs with little line shaping or thought required. A couple holes are a little more fun, but still aren't very challenging and only offer limited risk for errant shots to be reflected in your score. The equipment is not in the best shape. The portable baskets are bent and don't catch great, and one is missing (hole 3 I believe). There are no tee signs, just posts that sometimes have the hole number on them. This makes it a little difficult to be sure you're playing the course the correct way, especially with some awkward walks between holes. The tees are natural, and aren't all in the greatest shape, there are some ruts and uneven areas. There is a long walk back to the parking area after the 9th hole.
Other Thoughts: If you were having an event here (and it seems like a good place for that), having a course would be a cool activity as part of the festivities. On it's own though, the course just isn't really challenging or interesting, and the lack of good baskets or any kind of signage makes it feel less complete. Beginners will have a good time here, with shorter holes and no real punishment for errant shots. More experienced players won't find much challenge or variety here to keep them interested, despite the couple fun holes.
