Pros: Very generous on what you can shoot for par, signs for each hole, concrete tee pads, shady, few places to lose a disc, nice mix of fade and draw lanes.
Cons: Not well maintained grounds: trash and not mowed or cleared, 9 baskets for 18 holes, poison ivy, very long walk between a couple of holes.

Pros: the different tee pads on each hole changes the way you play each hole so you can play 18 fairly easily without getting bored. Fresh mulch is usually around each basket which is nice. Good change up in distances ranging from 200ft to 600 ft.
Cons: The walk from #2 to #3 is a little walk not bad just different from the rest of the holes. The parking area right before #3 is usually covered with condoms, beer cans, etc and shady vehicles are usually around there
Other Thoughts: Good course just needs cleaned up a little I usually pass this one up to go to Hindman Park

Lots of length variety...
Pros: Plays in an easy circle for the most part, with two pads per hole. Made to be played as 18 holes by playing the shorts and longs consecutively or just 9. Big variety of layouts and lengths from short shorties to very long. They keep fresh mulch around the baskets which is nice, and it is usually pretty dry due to a drainage creek in the middle. Nice, new tee pads and great signage with hole route and distance from both tees. The holes range from sub 200ft to a whopping 600ft on hole 9's long tee. Overall, it is a fun, quick course which I found easy to navigate even the first time playing.
Cons: Lots of baby stumps to trip over and holes in the ground here and there. Small creek has no bridge and can be muddy post-rain. Briar, briar and more briar, so wear pants you don't like. Quite a bit of large sticks, limbs about as well. Bottles, trash, cans, and quite a few condoms litter the ground, especially near the always locked restroom and parking lot. A local told me this was a very dangerous park used for drug dealing and worse before they cleaned it up recently. I have on occasion seen some "seedy" people digging through the trash or parked around. Hole 4 borders a giant briar patch and homes on the right, so play carefully, especially from the super long tee on this one. Lastly, as you are leaving 4, the tree with a sign for hole 5 on it is pointing the wrong direction. 5 is actually straight and slightly left of the tree not right as it shows.
Other Thoughts: When you pull into the park, your first right is a little parking area. When you park, you will be within 10 feet of the long tee for hole 1.

What a Layout!
Pros: -Great layout, makes you really have to think about your shot.
-18 unique holes. The teesigns are numbered 1-18.
-Some holes are short from both teepads, and some are long, especially from the long teepads.
-Concrete tees for each teepad!
Cons: -There is a bit of a walk from 2 basket to 3 tee. Its not really long, just longer than the walk between the other holes in the park.
Other Thoughts: ***Edit 10-31-10
Concrete teepads have been poured on all of the holes, and on both the long and short tees.***
-There are 2 sets of tees at each hole, one short and one long.
-There are 9 baskets, but two different teepads per hole that make it pretty much 18 unique holes. The signs reflect this as the shorter pad for each hole is numbered as the front 9 and the longer pad is numbered as the back 9.
-If you don't have a big arm, the long teepads will kick your butt on some of the longer holes. There are also some holes that are still short from the long teepads, so it makes for some fun golf.
-Even though it is getting better, I still wouldn't be caught alone in this park. Sketchy to say the least.
-A lot of clearing of land had to be done to get the course in place. This means that there is hardly any consistent undergrowth off the fairways. The worst you will likely be punished for missing a fairway is that you won't have a defined path to the basket. There will be trees in your way, but nothing other than that on most holes.
-You will most likely use every shot in your arsenal. I think this is a good course.
