Perfect Beginner's Course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: PoolSide is a course that was designed perfectly for beginners to the game. Starts off slow, and gradually works players into the game by introducing holes with more trees, distance, and hills.
You can make a day trip here with the kids. Disc golf, a HUGE playground, public pool, and more.
Course is always clean, and tends to drain pretty well.
Pretty low traffic, so it's the perfect place to teach the game.
27 holes of great disc golf right down the road. (Roscoe Ewing Park is rated 3.93, and Sam Masi is rated a 4.07).
Cons: Absolutely no challenge for an advanced player. Most holes are actable, which is understandable for a beginner's course.
Not a whole lot of replay value unless you're brand new to the sport.
Grass tees, baskets are on the older side.
Sometimes there will be pedestrians in the fairways.
Other Thoughts: The course was designed brilliantly with the land provided. Perfect place to learn the game, and maybe have some fun after the round!

Prototype Beginner Course
~Top notch beginner level course
~Good layout & easy to navigate
~Putting & mid range practice course
~Great park for the entire family
~All short straight shots
~Minor interference with other park activities
~Beginner level only
~Land locked, no ability to further develop
This is tough to put a solid numerical rating on. One one hand it's a top notch beginner level course as advertised, on the other it lacks many of the features and diversity that a regular course should offer. As previously stated I enjoyed this course for two main reasons: it's a near perfect display on how to introduce new players and help them develop good traits immediately, and it can function as a great warm-up before heading down the short drive to Roscoe Ewing. All of the holes are short, but eight of them have trees to contend with. It's nice to throw putters and short mids off the tee and get some solid reps with theses discs. It's also birdie and ace friendly to help with your confidence and attitude. Great job to those who put this course in, well done.

Good suplemental course
Pros: Well maintained course.
Very easy holes with trees for a slight challenge for beginners.
Cons: All holes are short which is fine considering the style of course.
Other Thoughts: If this course was not in the same town as Roscoe Ewing Park I would probably give it a 2. But considering the concept that is meant to be a basic practice course it deserves to be called "Decent."
