Pros: Would be rated higher as entire facility but I used the rating for just the course.
- The course is easy enough to navigate with all the holes being pretty close to each other
- A couple really nice water shots
- Decent mix of woods and open shots
- Free to play
Cons: - Holes are too close together and could be a giant pain if it was busy, which I've never actually seen.
- Tee pads are not great, but good enough
- Not that challenging of a course for a moderate level player.
Other Thoughts: Last time I went I brought my family and was able to play golf while they enjoyed the playground and other facilities. So it's really nice that it's part of the park, however it definitely feels squeezed into the space. It's hard to complain given the price, but it's also not something I'd make a special trip for.

Pros: Variety and challenge.
Cons: Tee pads are often destroyed.
Many to most holes cross each other.
Confusing layout.
Ponds are disgusting. Eats many a disc.
Other Thoughts: This course would have been vastly superior with greater attention spent on 12 holes versus stuffing 18 in. Its just too much crossover.

Pros: Good use of space, good hole distances, good obstacles. Variety of shots required, including two holes that play over ponds. Challenging but still suitable for beginners. Probably won't lose a disc, unless it goes into a pond.
Cons: Tee pads aren't the best. Many of the baskets are pretty old. Sometimes there is litter in the park. Some tees are hard to find.

Pros: Decent tee boxes and visible signage. Course is nicely integrated into a tight park. Some baskets seems newer. Courses like this help outsiders get to know the sport and potentially try it. Easy to find from main roads.Water is fun to throw over or swim in (my friend found out, not recommended). Some holes are fun to play and take some skill.
Cons: Several baskets were rusted out. Signage was variable, old, and poorly maintained. There was trash in the pine forest section of the course. Young kids have a tendency to "hang out" in the wooded section. Map was worn and hard to figure out.
Other Thoughts: I was a bit disappointed in my outing since the pictures on this course here made it seem like a potential 4 star course. New baskets are desperately needed and signage needs to be updated...if I go back sometime in the future and improvements such as these are made this course could easily be a 3.5 or higher. Everyone at the course was helpful is guiding us to holes. After 2 or 3 times playing the signage issue would not be a big deal.

Pros: Free to play
Holes marked well
Good course to get beginners interested, (except for one hole with the pond).
Trees pose some challenges.
Good medium distance holes.
Cons: More advanced players may find the course not too challenging.
Other Thoughts: I would characterize this course as a good beginner course and fun to play with newbies. I find it a little too simple for my taste. But, it is free, so can't complain too much.
