Pros: This course is rough enough, I'm not sure if it's ready to be open to the public. I tried to rate this course without entering a rating. I thought that would have been the most fair way to do it. But the site won't let you do that so I'm giving it my rating plus a half a point for future improvements. The course plays behind the ballfields, around a empty lot, through some woods and down a utility road. The major problem that I see now is that there is not a single sign or any bit of information anywhere. I didn't have the slightest idea where the course started. I think I walked the course backwards trying to determine a starting point. I finally teed it up on the uphill hole right behind the ballfield's RF fence. And then I promptly lost one of my favorite discs in the thickest, THE THICKEST! underbrush I have ever encountered. This brush was so thick, you could not take a step without breaking down 6-10 bushes/branches. The only saving grace about this brush was that there were no pricklys of any kind.
After a 30 minute search, I gave up and moved on to, I think, the next hole. This is an extremely long, ridiculously tight (maybe 6 foot wide fairway) with the same extremely thick underbrush. Not having an unlimited supply of discs, I skipped this hole.
I think, the next hole is an anhyser shot out past a grafitti covered tank of some kind into an open field.
The next hole, I guess, plays to the basket next to the tank.
I found a teepad for the next hole but it was pointed at no basket that I could find. I did find a hole that is either where the basket is going to be or was?
The next hole was actually a decent hole throwing into the woods with a little hyser action.
Then the next two holes play right down a dirt, park service road. I don't like those two at all. I hestitate to think about people walking up those roads and having a disc coming right towards them.

The last hole I played was my favorite. It's a short, slight hyser throw over a small gully to a basket on the grass by the ballfield. Right near the basket I started on. The baskets are brand new. Some teepad forms filled with gravel are in place.
Cons: Currently, there are too many to list. The ridiclously tight second hole I played. The two holes on the service road are unsafe and no fun to play. The thickest underbrush in America. The lack of any signs.
Other Thoughts: The simpliest way to improve this course right now would be for the designer to take a Sharpie and write the hole # on the basket and even on the wood form of the teepad. Much underbrush needs to be cleared away. The long, tight hole is way too much of a challenge for this recreational course. Shorten it! Clear out some brush. Do something different with the two holes playing down the road. The nice tee box is going to get destroyed or damaged the first time a loaded truck drives down this road.

I've never given a 0 to any course I reviewed. On even the most dismal courses, someone has expended a great deal of time and effort on that course. I'm a major advocate for disc golf and I do appreciate your efforts. The peninsula area has really boomed this past couple of years with new courses. But this course needs some overhaul work. Sorry!
