Pros: Park setting. Grass is cut low. All tees had small signs (with only the hole number on them). The hole layout is nicely done, and offers the more experienced player with a few risk/reward shots, some low ceiling shots, and holes that benefit throwers with a good forehand throw. Would make for a good recreational course for the casual player (minus the risk/reward factor...more below).
Cons: Has 18 holes/tees playing to 9 baskets. The tees are well marked, and there is now a rudimentary map in the Files section. However, the tees are grass. They are marked by a set of concrete markers set in the ground.
Baskets. Although new, they are cheap baskets, and have a single row of chains, leading to discs passing through the chains and out the other side. The baskets have no number signs, and there is no sign to indicate the direction to the next tee.
Risk/Reward Shots. This is a pro for the more experienced player, however, not so for a recreational player. For example, the basket for Hole 6/15 is located about 4 feet from a pond, and the approach shot is looking uphill, so you are unaware of the danger of throwing in the pond. While an experienced player will be forced to choose how aggressive to be, the recreational player, who may only have a couple discs, stands an increased chance of losing a disc. While this type of basket position is ok with me, for a new player deciding if they like the game, a lost disc may be all it takes to turn them off to disc golf. Hole 9/18 has a similar pond problem.
Other Thoughts: This was my first time playing the course. I noticed in the description that they planned on expanding to 18 baskets, and the last review was from last year, so I thought I would go and see if the course changed. It had not. This course would be vastly improved with concrete tees, new baskets, with number signs, and signs pointing to the next tee, better tee signage (good signs have map of hole, and shows players ponds and other obstacles), and the moving of several basket positions to cater to the recreational player more (4 feet from a water hazard is a bit too close).

Pros: Long holes great for working on your driving skills. The park itself is nice
Cons: Almost impossible to find tee pads. Not a very challenging course. Hard to find your way around
Other Thoughts: Needs more prominent tee pads
