Pros: Good location, interesting variation in hole shots as well as medium length drives, nice disc catchers. Creative use of bends and surprisingly difficult wrapping drives. The park is fairly secluded, so there is no waiting.
Cons: There were no benches, no restrooms, no hole 8 at all, the tee boxes were poorly marked, two holes shared one catcher at a point, the course appeared to have no rhyme or reason to the tee placement. Several of the posts marking the location of the tee boxes where laying on the ground or the sign marking the the hole, gone all together. The brush around the course has been allowed to grow up vastly too high and several of the holes are located to the point where if the pin is overshot by 10 feet you are in thick, un-maneuverable brush.
Other Thoughts: This course has the potential to be quite enjoyable if it were played in the fall or winter, or if the grounds were kept a little better. The holes themselves do show some imagination and with some work, this would a nice course for a relaxed game.

Pros: There are many fun holes to play but I would really like to see most of the course redesigned.
There is a great use of the elevation. There is also a nice variety of right turning/ left turning and straight shots. The course is never crowded and is usually a ghost town. It's a nice beginner course because the holes are very short and it is mostly easy to navigate.
Cons: Unfortunately, I have many cons to list.
- tee areas have a toe board to trip over
- some tee areas extremely short and slanted
- 2 holes have NO tee
- cramped and crossing fairways
- single chain Discatchers
- par on the tee signs is way off
After hole #18, the path back to the parking area is the fairway for hole #1, which is a blind uphill shot, so please look out.
The basket for #8 is gone. #9 doesn't have a tee so the locals play from the #8 tee. #10 has no tee, so locals play #10 and #11 from 11's tee. #15's tee sign is not there but the toe board tee area is visible from14's basket.
There are no bathrooms, garbage cans, or benches near the course.
Other Thoughts: Park Hours: 10am-8pm Memorial Day- Labor Day 10am-5pm in Winter
After #4 go downhill to tee for #5. After 15 go downhill towards the road for the next tee. Those are the only tricky areas.
From Simpson Ditch Road turn onto Landfill Road (GPS takes you about a block short of the park.) Follow the road into the park and park near the pond and look for the Disc Golf sign.
I know I listed a lot of cons but I did enjoy about 5 holes alot. I spent along time saying " I wish they spread this out and used that area over there." There aren't any courses very close, this course is passable but not very good.
