Pros: This course flows very well and is easy to navigate, but a map wouldn't hurt for first timers. The course utilizes the land perfectly and makes great use of the elevation and a creek that runs through.
Hardly anyone is ever playing this course! Its well maintained, and they frequently change pin positions to keep the course interesting. More often than not, I'm the only person (group) playing this course.
Par 3's, 4's, and a 5 are included and marked on the tee pads. I always like to see that someone took the time to denote pars for the holes, rather than just call them all 3's.
Cons: Sometimes there are kids playing on equipment that comes near play on one hole (#12).
The pars marked on the tee pads are fading.
No tee signs
Other Thoughts: Holes #1 and #2 are on the other side (south) of the parking lot near the pool. They seem to be separated from the rest of the park/course.

Pros: A large variety of shots needed.
Beautiful park with a creek running through.
You can jump on the course in many places.
More than one restroom, 3 if you include the pool facilities.
Not a lot of traffic on the course.
Cons: It plays LONG, both in terms of the holes and in the amount of walking needed.
Course set on a hill, lots of up and down.
The park is prone to flooding, the holes through the middle of the course can be VERY wet.
Other Thoughts: Although you can jump on in a variety of spots, don't miss holes 1&2 which are across the parking lot of the pool. Playing across the creek and then crossing at the dam is pretty cool. Steer clear of the large spruce coming down the hill, they are known to eat discs!
