 Fun 9 holes

Pros: I felt that it was a fun course for only being 9 holes. I don't understand all the bad reviews on this one. Yes, it is short and it may be a little repetitive, but I think the designer did very well with the small amount of space and only getting to do 9 holes. The course is technical and fun. Lots of opportunity's for birdies. I played it twice in a row and had the chance to birdie every hole.
Nice practice basket.
Holes are labeled well.
I like the use of the small amount of woods they have. Course is worth playing if you are passing through, but not necessarily if your going out of your way, because it is only 9 holes.
Overall, it was worth playing, I had a good time.
Cons: Could make a little better use of space. There is a practice basket and I think that could be another hole. They could have a few more holes I think, or just make a few of them longer. Hole one is hard to find unless you use the map on here. I found it easily because I looked it up on here first.
No concrete teepads
Other Thoughts: No concrete teepads but the ground was nice and flat.
Took me a little over 30 minutes to play because it was so short.

Pros: This 9 hole course is in a very small city park that makes pretty good use of the land that was there to work with. The baskets are in pretty good shape. It is mostly wooded with a creek in play on a couple of holes. There is a decent variety of moderately wooded, densely wooded, and a couple of more open shots. Hole #9 is unique with a hanging basket over the creek and ends up back at the parking lot. The course finishes stronger than it starts as the ending holes are a little more interesting.
Cons: The natural tees were just ok at best, and were marked with ball golf type markers that to me were too narrow to feel comfortable. Also, some of the tee markers were hard to find, broken, or were missing one or both of the markers. A couple of the fairways (#3 and #4) were ridiculously narrow. Also, there is barely any variety in length from hole to hole.

Hole #1 was difficult to find (use the map linked on this site, that would have been helpful); you have to take a walk around the ball fields behind the skate park to find tee #1. You can't see any tees or baskets from the parking area.
Other Thoughts: If you want a quick round where you only need a couple of discs this is a good place for that. I personally found this course to be pretty boring and occasionally frustrating. It does make pretty good use of the small space available and would be serviceable if that is all I had, but it just lacks any real excitement. I would not recommend driving out of your way to play this course.

Pros: This is a good course to practice your precision on. There isn't alot of room to let a distance driver rip 300 yards, so all you really need is a mid-range and a putter. The hidden tees give an extra challenge for the more advanced players. The hanging basket on hole 9 is a nice touch, as well. The flow of the course is set up nicely, You dont have to worry about getting lost here. Everything seems to be pretty linear. It generally takes around 30 minutes to play if you are alone or with a small group. This makes it good for a quick game to pass the time.
Cons: There isn't alot of variety here. Most of the holes are in dense wooded areas. One bad throw can throw off your entire game. Once again, there is only one hole that is open air, and thats on 8. Other than that, prepare to dodge trees.
Other Thoughts: Its a good course for practice on your precision throwing. If you are looking for variety, so to Groves park on the other side of town, but if you want a wooded excursion, this is a course that's fit to you.

 Challenging Short Course

Pros: This course can be really tough with lots of challenging throws through the woods. Some of the holes feature pretty creative uses of the space available. Good flow, with the hole on 9 being on the opposite end of the parking lot from where you began.
Cons: Kind of repetitive. Just about every hole has you throwing into or out of the woods. No real opportunities to let loose with a big throw.

  Small But Challenging..........

Pros: If you want to get in a quick round this is the course for that. This course offers two natural tee pads at each hole. There is also "secret pads" known to locals as "Fearwood". These offer longer and more challenging throws.
Cons: I wish this course offered 18 holes but it is very in the amount of space available.
Other Thoughts: The hanging basket on 9 is a fantastic touch. Great use of the space available!

Pros: Thirty minutes to play nine holes, only used a mid-range and a putter.

Signs were useful, and the flow was natural.
Cons: Most holes were the same - 225 feet through a dense collection of small-diameter trees.
Other Thoughts: Probably the best that could be done with the limited space and physical features.
