An Enjoyable Challenge
Pros: The redesigned front nine is safer and more clallenging than ever before. The well-marked holes use the existing trees, soccer fields, walks and roads to create a mostly tight course requiring accurate throws and good decision making. Hole 6 is long and best suited to several low, well-placed shots between mature evergreens to reach the goal in par.
The back nine holes are staked out and will be in place by spring 2011. These new holes compliment the front nine extremely well with holes 10 and 11 continuing the need to make accurate shots. Holes 12 and13 are both open, bomb away 500 feet plus holes and 14 and 15 present ace opportunities. Holes 16, 17, and 18 finish in the mature trees of Moore Park. After completing hole 18, it is a short 4 minute walk past the Imagination Station play area for kids and the tennis courts back to your car.
Cons: Other park activities may occasionally cause challenges in playing the course without disruption
Other Thoughts: This 6227 foot course will have pro tees marked with brick-like pavers by the spring of 2011 lengthening the course and making it even more challenging.
If you see turkey buzzards high up in the trees on hole 18, don"t worry. They won't bother you. Just play your normal game and have fun.

Improved and Still Improving Course
Pros: This disc golf course in Bryan's Recreation Park is partially wooded and partially open. Its nine baskets provide a good mix of challenging wooded shots and clearer distance attempts. The new design is an improvement. The signs at the tees which show the layout of each hole are a neat feature as well.
Cons: The course winds around many soccer fields and walking paths, so a disc thrower must use care not to get too wild with his throws. Due to its location, there are no hills or water hazards to provide more interest or challenge. One hole near Townline Road is too long in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: With an additional nine holes planned for 2011, this course should become really nice. The newer holes are located in both open fields and the mature oaks of Bryan's Moore Park. Then there should be an even better mix of surroundings for the entire 18 holes.

a good road trip
Pros: great mix of long and short holes ,with a good mix of both open and wooded technical hole .
Basket placement on #1 was very cool .
Bricks mark the throwing areas and give the tees a nice look .
soccer fields are no longer in play .
most of the course is now pretty wooded and technical ,but theres also a few bomb it holes .
the front nine are wooded with lots of pines ,but hole the back nine plays open then goes to a heavily wooded area with lots of mature trees .
Cons: long walks between 9-10 and a little walk back to your car ,but the walks were not to bad.
10 plays close to a low baseball fence
Pro tees are only marked with stakes and are hard to find
Other Thoughts: Drove from ft wayne with a few freinds and glad we made the trip .
we met the course designer while playing and he showed us the new holes that are going in the spring ,the holes were only marked with poles ,and stakes
Can't wait for the basket for the other nine

A big improvement over the old layout
Pros: Great use of trees and basket placement .
Long wooded holes that require good shot placement over bombing it .
Hole six is so beautiful ,the tee shot is though pines and require a low control shot and good placement ,the hole is 598' so you have to mentally plan every shot to score well on this hole .
There's also two sets of tees for each hole ,as for now the second set are only stakes in the ground painted orange we plan on putting a tee for them when we can ,the pro tees play much tougher than the short play much longer and makes every hole a little different from the short tees
All the holes are away from the soccer fields and walking paths and have well placed mandos to keep disc out of these areas .
a few holes have a great risk reward to them ,like 5 it's a short 198' hole and has o.b 50 feet behind it ,so if you run at it to aggressively you risk o.b
Every hole is well thought out and you can tell the designers put a lot of time in the placements .
Cons: some fairways and a really close and if you have a bad drive you may land into another fairway .
only natural tee's for now ,the park board plans on cement tees after we convert to 18 in the spring and when the funding permits .
It's only nine holes till spring 2011
Other Thoughts: Great course and soon to be better as soon as it gets nine more holes .
Improved in everywhere it will challenge the novice that plays by the pars which were set so the course isn't overly hard ,are the seasoned player who's been playing for years

The New 9 !!
Pros: The new design of this course puts a brand new feel to a familiar park. I had the pleasure of playing it for the first time with the two designers of the new layout. The course flows extremely well through park staying away from the soccer fields and walk way for the most part. A better use of all the natural obstacles was WELL planed. The challenge level just went way up on this new course ! With pro and am. tees,,it seems all the right things went in to this plan: (big arms, finesse, and a very good short game) and out came one of the better local courses by far !
Cons: The tee boxes are just marks beside the posts on the dirt.... for now.
Other Thoughts: If it has been a while since you have hucked a round at this park or perhaps have even given up on playing it..well well LOOK again !! The new layout is AMAZING, and with the future looking real positive for a back nine here...This place is only going to get better !!...A new favorite course on the local scene !! Thanx !!
