Pros: This course is extremely well maintained. Baskets are in great shape, concrete tee-pads, signs are accurate, (although there are only a couple blind holes) good markers directing to the next hole making it extremely easy to navigate, even the landscaping is kept up. I'm proud to call this my local course.
Great use of the space available and the mando's are interesting. Holes ranging from 150-615 feet and everything in between.
Cons: Not extremely challenging, most of the holes require you to throw straight ahead with little blocking your path, though that's not the case for every hole.
Many criss-crossing fairways. If it's busy this can be a concern
Other Thoughts: Blue and Black tees have been added to about half the holes. These are dirt tee pads but create a completely different experience from playing the concrete tees. On hole #3 for example, the black tee seems to double the length of the hole. On other holes, the blue/black tees don't add much distance but create a very different approach and incorporate more of the trees to block your path. For someone who might consider playing from the White tees a little too easy, this adds some challenge

Pros: Recent addition of Black tees add length to a relatively short course, it's like playing a new course from the tips.
New caretaker has made some great changes, all the basket areas now have the putting circle, and the dead brush has been removed.
Excellent baskets and permanent tee pads
Signs at every hole
Cons: None that are ongoing, except hole 17 is marked as a parent 4 and it's straight uphill at 270'. Play it as a par 3. Recently I have had to yell at some Pokemon players to look up from their phones because there's a course here, but this too, shall pass.
The Chandler Parks dept. is making some erosion-friendly changes that might come into play on 13. But it's fenced off and even if you throw into the area you can step right in and get your disc, and it will be great in a few weeks when completed.
A few too many shorties.
Other Thoughts: First off, big kudos to Boyd B. I've been playing here for 3 years and it has NEVER been better than it is right now. And I've played over 100 rounds here. Mostly part 3s, with a short Mando and a long Mando where you throw through giant concrete culvert pipes. Good stuff. Also, there is a walking path around the park for the significant other, and a huge playground for the young ones. And 2 dog parks. And a huge archery range.
This course is a 10 minutes drive for me, and I'm coming here more than the other local courses, which are are either boring parks or scrubby desert.
Summary - not the most challenging course, but taking everything into account this course checks off most of the major boxes.

Not your typical desert course!
Pros: Well laid out fairways if you play the rock lined OBs. Great for tournament preparation. Course has multiple legitimate par 4s. It has grown up a lot of vegetation and is now no longer a flat dry desert course, that I'm told it used to be.
Cons: A lot of hard pack and heat will tear up some of the more rubber type plastics.

Nice little pitch and putt
Pros: Very neat short course. My drive is way too much for this course. Great course to practice approach and putt from.
Cons: Windy, on this day, but not abysmal. I have played at far tougher courses in far worse wind, so this is reasonable. Lots of errant shots from other players. Tees, fairways, and baskets way too close together.
Other Thoughts: All in all a neat use of the grounds. Fun to play on this course. GREAT FOR BEGINNERS. My wife got her first, second, and third par. This was a fun little course. The cons are just minor considerations to keep in mind.

Pros: good use of ex landfill. Signage and tee pads are concrete and well done. long/short tee pads on most if not all holes. I think it flowed really well.
Bathrooms and water is available.
Cons: a couple of fairways are pretty close to each other.
Other Thoughts: This course is well done, it is on top of a hill covering an ex landfill. it can be really tricky at times especially when there is wind. Many a times I had some nice looking drives catch a draft, and go way further or way off because of the drafts on the course. Some holes have a good ace opportunity, Ive hit chains twice on the same hole, but no luck going in. I think the course suits a variety of players from beginners to experienced.

Pros: The constrution of signs and tees is nearly perfect, I've played all of the courses in the phoenix area and the tee areas are almost the best I've seen. Good mix of long and short holes. Interesting flight paths (Mandos). Plenty of parking, nice view, decent changes of elevation. Fun blind holes. Pretty easy to navigate, No risk of losing disc to water
Cons: Some holes are a little too short, holes crowded together (may cause problems when more golfers are out there)
Other Thoughts: No path to hole #10. Hole #13's sign is backward ~~whoops!!!!
