Pros: This course will test all your shots and force you to throw a wide variety of you discs. Basket placement is very nice on this course. Some shots require pin-point accuracy while others you can really bomb out there.
Cons: This course can really use a maintenance overhaul. The grass can be really high but the way the course is laid out I can see why grass maintenance can be an issue. Playing back and forth over creeks and different sections of the park are probably why. I think the bigger issue are all the dead branches hanging in the trees. On hole #1 a tree or branch must have fell cause the basket is all bent up. On hole #14 rain washed a big culvert out of the fairway/path being on a hill. The way the course is laid out it makes you backtrack on some holes to get to the next tee box.
Other Thoughts: From a non disc golfers perspective I bet this park was a really happening place 20 to 30 years ago. Now I know some may say what does this have to do with disc golf but hear me out. Throughout the park their are noticible things (ex.) moss covered sidewalks, overgrown fire pits, etc... this is why courses start to get neglected. When the people stop coming, the funding starts getting cut too which in turn affect the quality of the course. Overall this is a really nice course that's worth visiting. I drove for 2 hours to play this course and wasn't disappointed. I feel that if the maintenance to this course was addressed that this course would deserve a higher rating than 3.

 Nice layout but needs work

Pros: Very challenging, nice mix of open and tight wooded holes with lots of elevation changes. Adequate signage and most tee boxes in good condition. Nice baskets with multiple pin positions. Some pin positions present serious risk/reward choices!
Cons: The course needs steps and level paths along fairways that are on the sides of ravines.
Course maintenance/bad neighbors - my dad and decided that Hasson is a Delaware Indian word that means "path strewn with broken glass." I mean everywhere, especially on the wooded holes. Not pleasant to navigate while wearing Vibram FiveFingers (as I was).
Other Thoughts: The course is only a year old so there is plenty of time to improve it and it will wear in. I like the layout and the terrain, it just needs to be landscaped a bit to allow non-billy-goats to navigate it safely. Add those steps (and put a pin placement indicator on the tee signs) and it would get at least another half-disc added to the rating.

Pros: The only pro I have for this course is it is only eight miles from my home.
Cons: Insufficient signage. There are some directional signs here and there, but adding some numbers to them would be better. Also there are tall posts at each tee, but no numbers on them to identify them. Lastly holes 4 & 6 are going to leave someone with a serious injury, because of the extreme grade on which you are expected to make a throw.
Other Thoughts: Made up my own scorecard based on footage and pars listed on this website only to find printed scorecards at the course. The footage and pars did not match though. The footage increased by 261 total feet, but the par decreased from 68 to 63. Hole number 15 is listed as a par 5 with a footage of 472. The basket had been moved an additional 150 feet from where it was when we played earlier. Can someone please verify which scorecard is to be used.
