Pros: --Eclectic course next to a nice sports park and playground. Nice scenery.
--Concrete pads. Pro pads available on some holes.
--Nice variance of distance and obstacles from hole to hole.
Cons: --Some fairways run parallel to a road; others run alongside fenced baseball/softball fields.
--Signage and basket location. Other than a map of all 18 baskets at the start, signage is poor. Signage consists of hole number and handwritten yardage, but no indcation of basket location. Some baskets are hidden low on the other side of retention pond berms.
--Water hazards consist of retention ponds.
Other Thoughts: Compared to other aspects of this park, the disc golf course feels tacked on. Still, it does feel like folks are committed to its upkeep and improvement, especially with the recent inclusion of concrete pads. Those seeking a challenge will enjoy the course, although a prior knowledge of all basket locations would help.

Pros: - Good quality DGA baskets
- In a sports complex in a safe part of town
- Easy to play along and around other park activities
- Relatively simple layout with some challenging tunnel shots
- Water shots make you work for safe landings
Cons: - The course map listed on the DGCR site does not correspond to the current course layout.
- The current layout does have sufficient hole number markers however, there are no distance markings or hole layout markings on the signs. You will spend a good bit of time walking down the fairway to see where the pin locations are.
- Mix of concrete and dirt tee pads. A few of the concrete pads were too short to use safely. The use of the walking path for tee pads is the best possible alternative.
Other Thoughts: It's time to update the online map to match the course layout. The tee markers would be so much improved if they were labeled with distance and layout diagrams. The course plays tight around the park, and uses the water hazards well. Hole number 12 is quite a challenge playing through a swamp! It's a fun and quick go-around if you are in the area.

Pros:
Many chances to throw over/near water with a) a reasonable chance to retrieve your disc if it finds the drink, or b) bailout areas, typically to the left, if the distance seems too long.

Golden spoke to point you towards the next tee.
Cons:
Like most courses in Florida located in a multi-purpose park, it is 1) flat, and 2) offers a few chances to negatively interact with other park users. A few holes have you throwing down paved paths.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in a clockwise fashion around the fields, courts, and parking lots of a public, multi-purpose park. For the most part, the course plays next to the woods, and over the water retention basins, that form an outer rim around the various playing areas.

About 1/3rd of the holes have you throwing over these water retention basins. Some are short (under 200'), but others are long (over 300'), and nearly all offer a bailout position to the left (#6 is to the right), but not too far, or you'll find the edge of the woods.

Speaking of "to-the-left", about half of the non-water holes play fairly similarly to each other, treeline to the left, open to the right, a straight drive with a variable amount of left fade needed to reach the basket. A couple of very short, very-treed holes, a righty, and an a S-shape round out the lineup.

Navigation: finding the closest parking lot to tee-1 was the biggest challenge. Find the tennis courts, behind it the basketball courts, behind it the shuffleboard area (hole-2) plays over the back of it), and find the closest parking lot to the shuffleboard. Otherwise, the course has a simple, clockwise flow, with 5, 16-18 across the street. It makes total sense to play #18 between 4 and 5, thereby finishing with #17.

Fun play. Playing here often will strengthen your resolve, or have you owning a set of water discs.

Pros: Beginner friendly course. Very easy to to shoot 10-14 under. Good use of the water.
Cons: Very short concrete tee pads. Most of them stick up several inches off the ground.
Other Thoughts: Be careful where you step. Lots of snakes on the course because of the water.
