Pros: This is a short and sweet course like I have never seen before. Ace attempts at every tee. Easily reached from I-75.
Cons: None in my eyes. It is what it is, a nice short game practice course.
Other Thoughts: I had a blast playing this little bastard. Its quick and easy with a good flow. I will be back to play this again.

 Intro to Disc Golf

Pros: - Clean, well maintained park - very pleasant, relaxed setting.
- Perfect course for someone who wants to write the next chapter in the "most holes played in 24 hours" record book: silly short holes, compact layout, aces up the wazoo.
-Good for introducing little kids to disc golf.
- Good for practicing putts and approaches (even on a lunch break).
- No reason to wait at all: very light traffic and, everything's close together, so you can easily skip a hole or two and come back to them.
- Decent tee signs with distance clearly indicated.
Cons: - Not a serious disc golf course: If you call yourself a disc golfer, the ONLY purpose this course serves is as a practice putting green.
- Tee boxes made from railroad ties filled with wood chips. Plain grass would be an improvement.
Other Thoughts: I mean this quite literally: This is to Disc Golf what Putt-Putt is to real golf. The only disc you'll need here is a putter (although you might use a midrange for hole # 7). Drivers should be prohibited on this course.
I can't even say it's a beginner course for adults - nearby Bay Court or Fire Fighters are much more suitable for adults (even for a first time out).

HOWEVER, if you want to work on your short game, this is a great place to do so. You can break out your putter and get tons of practice on putt and approach in 30 mins.

This is also an EXCELLENT place to introduce young kids to disc golf: nothing intimidating, all the baskets are right in front of you.

 Huge Short Game Improvement

Pros: Awesome for improving short game
Nice Scenery, no trash, no places to lose discs
Only a midrange and putter needed
Cons: It is a short 9 hole, but really good if you want to improve your short game
Woodchip tees could cause you harm if you had to chuck it, but short hole lengths make it so you dont have to
Other Thoughts: I saw a huge improvement on my short game after playing here everyday after school. Good practice course when i was waiting for kids to go throw Riverbends or Firefighters.
Police like to travel by often, but won't bother you unless you're up to something other than discing.
Its fun to get Aces once in a while here and its pretty easy to.

Pros: Very well maintained course. Leave your bag in the car, only a Roc and Avair needed.
Cons: Longest hole is 200 ft and wide open.
Other Thoughts: I worked in the area and i loved that i could play 18 holes on my lunchbreak. Big improvement to my short game because of that.

Pros: A nice clean park, usually with little traffic. Definitely a mid-range game course. Good place to practice up shots and some short aces
Cons: Very short! Not a true course in my book, more like the practice green at the Driving range.
Other Thoughts: Pretty good use of a small park. The woods keep it cool in the summer and the pond is a pretty backdrop. I rated this below a 2 since it is no where near "average" around here.

 Pitch 'n' Putt

Pros: Good place to practice short game. 9 baskets in small park with some trees to provide hazards. No chance of losing discs. No nasty schule.

Provides a fun introduction to the sport for beginners.
Cons: The property is very small and the course shares the land with other park users. There's potential for players and other park users to get hit by discs. This is a particular concern as the park attracts families with small children.
Other Thoughts: Remember: Don't be a dirty disc golfer. If you pack it in, pack it out!

Pros: Small quick course. Nice area to walk around. Good if you don't have a lot of time but want to get some links in.
Cons: Hole distances are way too short for anyone with a sweet drive. My forehand drive overshoots almost every basket on the first throw unless I'm careful.
Other Thoughts: Difficult to find second hole after playing the first. Needs more defined path.

Pros: A very quick play, good for lunch breaks and busy days.
A generally fun course.
Cons: Very short, majority of holes are straight line from tee to pin.
If more than a few groups are playing at once, course will feel very crowded.
Other Thoughts: Very much a putt putt golf course for frisbee golfers. It is a great place to work on the approach and putting.

Pros: --Nice quiet park, even in a heavily populated area. Even though theres alot of other activities in the main park, this small course dosnt get played alot. Very good maintenance, no trash or vandalism anywhere to be seen. Baskets are in decent shape too (hole 8 was recently replaced with a new basket). There's good signs, you will not get lost! The only "iffy" spot is after hole #1, you turn right and walk through the small patch of woods to get to hole #2.
Cons: --The biggest con is only having 9 holes. Besides that the wood chips tees can mess up your footing, hole #7 is the only hole it really affects you on though.

--Also alot of people will think there's no challenge here but it's for begginers and people who want to work on their short game.
Other Thoughts: --They use their small chunk of land as good as they can but its mainly open throws with a couple random trees, and ace runs on every hole. There is always a chance for a "perfect game" here!

Access to course--
On University dr., use last entrance on the right before squirel rd.

--Once inside, go straight untill you come to tennis courts, then turn left, pass the tennis courts and turn right at the next road, park in the circle parking lot by the white building.

{Note}- Police station in front of park, and sometimes 5-0 rides around on mountain bikes. They never hassle you, but they might stop and watch you throw on a couple holes.
