Not a bad little city course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Aesthetic - very nice charm to this, I like the setting in the city, very different.
TeePads/Baskets - The baskets were fine, little short. The tee pads could use work, but more pro than con.
Signage - Nice signs, can't ask for much better on this little area.
Fun - this is tough, depends on what you are looking for. If you want a quick time, a little challenge, little risk, this is kinda fun. I had fun here, only stayed 30 minutes, 12 holes, more than that it would be a con I think.
Locatability - the park is easy to find, maps to it area easy, and signage and map inside is great, print it.
Maintained/Bugs - no bugs which is great. And it is nicely maintained park. The walking path where some launch tee's are from need maintenance.
Cons: Challenge - this is not going to even show up as a blip on any challenging course list. I can hardly say there are much of technical shots, but you can work some stuff out here. Don't come here for the challenge though.
Variety - this is one of the bigger downfalls, no challenge because not much variety. It's a park, there and back. A few small hills, some trees here and there. Not much variety of shots nor water. But I loved the Wall shot where if you screw up and release high, its going onto the expressway.
Congestion - I went in November and there were still a number of other disc golfers. I believe walkers or soccer or baseball would be trouble as well.
Other Thoughts: Whats holding it back from higher rating - this is pretty much the max it could get, its locked in space, multi-use park.
Kid Friendly - definitely kids would love this place.
Older/Less Active Player Friendly - definitely older crowd or less active would like it too, short walks, not much hikes up and down.
Rookie Friendly - definitely rookie friendly except not to learn tough shots.
Average Player Friendly - some average players just wanting to get out might like this if they are in the area.
Pro Player Friendly - a pro may want to come to work on something, but not to do the course as is. They would have to do a safari, play to 3 from 1, or work on a specific skill no laid out as such, be creative, otherwise this would be an absolute waste of time.

watch for pedestrians and I-94
Pros: - Cement tees, Chainstar baskets, well mowed, ample parking.
- Well designed to test every type of shot, even some fairly tight shots using just the few available trees.
- Design doesn't always allow you to just hyzer around obstacle, have to maintain some accuracy and distance control.
- Location- saves anyone on the East side a lot of time to get to the nearest course, 1 mile from my Grandma's house.
Cons: - Walking path (obviously can't do anything about it) in play on every hole, have to wait for joggers. Hopefully people won't cause a problem and get the course pulled, time will tell.
- Houses too close on some holes, easy to flip over a fence- and stupid golfers will trespass and cause problems with the community. Holes designed to prevent this as much as possible though.
- I-94 could come into play.
- No signs yet, but tees labeled with #'s, map at board.
- Some long walks, necessary to traverse a soccer field though.
Other Thoughts: Small course packed tight into busy park, good for the local disc golf scene, if the 'casuals' can behave themselves. Dual tees makes for 24 holes and each tee is at least a different shot/length.

small but close to home.
Pros: Only course on the east side.
Cons: Walking path. People are constantly stopping and asking what i am doing with frisbies. apparently some people were not blessed with common sense. one lady asked me if the baskets were squirrel feeders...how a basket would feed squirrels, i will never know.
Other Thoughts: i wish golf courses did not have walking paths winding through them. another good example of this is riverbends park. that place is notorious for idiots walking in your way as well.
