Pros: wide variety of holes
Has a practice basket
Cons: Dirt tee pads marked with logs
No tee signs
baskets that have numbers on them are not always the right number
long walk to hole 1, then from 6 to 7
Other Thoughts: First off, download UDisc app, excellent map that I was able to use to find all the tee's and baskets. And yes, you need it to find a few of the holes that are well hidden.

This is not a "public" course in that the park is owned by the residential neighborhood and not the city. But there are no gates and no one bothered us as we played.

Hole 1 throws across a flood plain that might be a pond parts of the year.
Hole 2 throws back across parallel to 1. Both holes have decent distance and guarded baskets.
Hole 3 throws down to a group of trees.
Hole 4 was tough to find, the tee was to the right of basket 4, and is a dogleg right, over a large tree and over the edge of the earth damn. It is hidden in the woods, there is no clear shot.
Hole 5 tee is down a short path, it is actually platform on the hill, the basket is over the creek and back up the hill a little. The undergrowth is clear near the basket, but don't hit the line, you are in trouble. I did not see a line to the basket, just threw an upshot down the path and an upshot to the basket.
Then back out into the open, hole 6 is probably the longest hole throwing down the path to the basket near #2 tee box.

Then a long walk to 3 simple holes

#7 is a short slight right to left shot, the first half of the fairway is mowed, the 2nd half is natural and has some rough. (jeans recomended)
#8 throw deeper into the rough from the mowed area. Another shot similar to 7.

Then the shortest hole on the course, hole 9 is an under 200 foot shot from the rough area throwing across the small creek into an open area at the base of the damn for a small lake. I threw every disc I had on me running for an ace.

In all, not a bad course if you know where you are throwing.

Would I play here again.

No, while interesting, it is sort of out of the way to get too and you run the risk of being kicked out.

Pros: -discatcher baskets in good condition
-has at least some tee areas marked (wooden frame)
-original marked tees had flat bricks with hole numbers (most are gone now)
-baskets tucked into small groups of trees
-back side plays along a small (mostly dry) creek
-mostly shorter holes with wooded greens, good for a small neighborhood park
Cons: -the layout is really tough to follow
-the baskets are not all numbered
-the tees are not all numbered
-the course is very overgrown
Other Thoughts: This course looks like it could be solid. It plays through a scrubby area between houses in a small residential area and alongside a very small community park. These two areas are separated by a small walk along a trail between houses (accessible from Kyle Dr. right by the park entrance). The discatchers are in good shape. Hole 7 plays near a creek and finishes under some trees. Hole 9 shoots through a small window across that creek, a cool ace run. The baskets are all tucked into clusters of trees that have probably grown a lot since the course was installed. Some of them are pretty crowded now with very low ceilings.

I had a really hard time figuring out the layout here. I saw basket 9 and the other basket nearby when I drove in to park but I started off by wandering into the wrong direction. I finally saw baskets 7 and 8 and realized the flow for holes 7-9. Then I found the trail across the street that leads to the other area and found four baskets and two tees which were all unmarked except for basket 3. I lost the will to go on at this point; it was 95 degrees and humid and there were more and better courses to go find.

I created a map for my best guess of the layout and uploaded it here. I know I didn't find all the baskets or tees but I hope it helps the next person figure it out. If you had a proper map of the layout and could find all the tees and baskets, this could easily be a 2.0 course. As of now, it's an unmarked mystery.

Pros: They have nice DISCatchers, and hole 7( its marked 7 but I think it is really hole 6) was a fun hole. holes 6-9 were actually playable. They were extremely short but at least you had some sense of direction. However, that is all I can say about this course on a positive.
Cons: The first thing is the drive to the course threw the neighborhood is long and hard to access. Hole 1-5 are on the opposite side of the street through this path. There are no tee signs to give you any sense of direction. I found hole 1's tee pad and then just baskets randomly throughout the park. At the end I found hole 6's baskets but I have no idea were it was suppose to be pointed to. Because There are 4 baskets on the side of the road by the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Only holes 6-9 are honestly playable everything else is just baskets in random spots with no tee pads anywhere to be seen. This course isn't really worth the time.
