Great Elevation Changes But Safety Issues Concern!
Pros: This is a lovely little, green city park with some great hilly terrain to work with. The course designers used this elevation to max. # 3 is a great little 235' ACE run to a basket down in the valley. # 6 has you throwing across the same valley from one hillside to a basket 300' on the other side. But my favorite hole was # 7, It's a tight anhyser, 244' around some trees to a blind basket sitting under some tree branches.
There are only four baskets. They're a brand called Freedom Nation. Two are single chains and two are double chained??? The teepads are painted on sidewalks, picnic areas and in one case, on a drainage culvert. They are black and shaped like baseball home plates. Using the Hole Info details from DGCR, I had no problems navigating the course. Without it, I would have been hopelessly lost.
Cons: #'s 8 and 9 especially present major safety concerns in my opinion. # 8 is 298' foot across the park and the only obstacle in your way is the playground apparatus which stands directly in the way. It's fairly easy to throw around this equipment but sooner or later someone is going to drill some 4 year old on the playground equipment and his/her mother's going to go straight to the city park's department.
# 9 is a similar disaster waiting to happen. It's 270'. You're throwing to a blind basket, close to picnic tables, playground equipment, etc. When children are present are present, players will need to skip these holes! I know from 33 years experience that players, especially teenage disc golfers, aren't wired to skip holes when children are present.
The wind was pretty brutal on the day I played.
Other Thoughts: Luckily, I had the park to myself today. I loved the elevation changes and the ACE runs. I hope to see the safety issues addressed because I think this course is a great little recreational level course. I surely enjoyed playing it.

Pros: shady some elevation changes some intersting holes using trees and playground equipment as obstacles not too difficult rewarded for accuracy rather than length lightly used can generally have the place to yourself
Cons: Nothing real long short course only 4 baskets surrounded by houses could end up in a back yard with an errant shot
Other Thoughts: Finally after all these years got double chains on all the baskets.
