Deuce or die that needs some TLC
Pros: Great beginner course with plenty of elevation and unique holes.
Cons: Hole 3 could be unplayable with heavy rain. The fairway is basically a eroded creek bed.
Hole 9 thru 11 area is crammed together. I even threw to the wrong basket. Discs could be buzzing your head when it gets busy out here.
Hole 14 was so overgrown it was unplayable. Like throwing thru a forest. Then go find your disc.
Hole 18 was hard to find with no teepad.
Long weird walk back to vehicle after hole 18.
Eroded dangerous trails and needs updated signage.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun fairly easy course that needs some love to get it back in shape. Like most Indiana courses, the rating is too high.

A little odd
Pros: The course plays through a pleasant city park. A handful of holes play through grassy park areas with scattered mature trees, offering multiple lines and open drives. A couple of these shots offer a little bit of length, with one in the 300' range and one more with a little downhill and 400' of distance.
The other half of the course plays through or along fairly dense woods. There are enough trees and enough brush to punish errant shots, and short technical lines that will challenge your short game line shaping skills. There are some minor elevation changes on some shots, adding some interesting greens and some variety on drives. The tee signs are pretty accurate, with hole length and layout. The concrete tees are small but adequate for the length of the course.
Cons: The holes are so short that apart from a couple of the open holes most players won't need more than a putter and a midrange. There isn't a whole lot of challenge if you're pretty good at upshots, every hole is reachable and not all that difficult.
Navigation is a nightmare here, the walks between holes are very long and unmarked. It ends up feeling like you walk more to get to the tees than you do playing the holes. The walk back to the parking lot from 18 is not at all obvious, and is quite long. You often play on or over park roads throughout the course, a potential safety issue on a busy day.
Other Thoughts: Beginners can have a great time here, the holes are short and where there is punishment you'll take an extra stroke on an errant drive but you're not likely to lose discs. More experienced players won't find much challenge here, and there's not enough variety to keep things all that interesting for someone with good line shaping skills. With a little work on signage between holes, this could be a great course to introduce new players to the sport, and if you're looking for a quick putter round with some ace potential this isn't a bad stop.

Pros: This is a nice little beginner course set in a nice city park. The course is very short but fun and seems to have grabbed the attention of the locals. There were a number of groups out playing when I was here on a Saturday.
The course has nice tee signs and about half of the course has concrete tees. There are some good elevation changes on a number of the holes. Nice mix of open and wooded holes.
Hole 1 and 17 are the signature holes on the course IMO, very fun shots!
Cons: The course is very short. About half the holes are less than 200ft long with one hole that's only 90ft. The longest hole on the course is 400ft with a slight downhill. It's a very cool shot and one of my favorite holes on the course. The problem is it doesn't seem very safe; a park road is immediately to the right of the fairway running parallel almost forcing a RHBH player to throw over the road.
A couple of the holes had fairways that were so tight they were almost non-existent. Of course they were so short it wasn't too difficult to card a 2 or 3 on them.
Navigating the course isn't too bad but it did take me a minute to find 13's tee.
The shot selection is very poor.
I couldn't find 18's tee pad when I was here. On the way back to the car I asked some locals who said it had been moved and to look for the spray paint on the basketball court.
Other Thoughts: This course is designed to introduce new players and families to the sport and it seems to be doing a great job at it. If you live in the area it's a nice place to get in a quick round, but I wouldn't go out of your way to play here.
