Pros: This course is very well maintained and beautiful. I really enjoyed a nice casual round.

The other park amenities are not in the way, but you feel close to others in the park. Quite a few people stopped to watch and asked me about the game.

Some holes are great. 1, 11 and 12 are very good. a good shot will be rewarded, but there is some danger. 10 is a nice little hole that ends right into a little cove.
Cons: Poor design hampers this course. Some examples:
Hole 6's tee pad is in a bad place as shots from hole 5 may hit it. Plus, you have to walk back past hole 5's basket to continue down hole 6's fairway. A bridge could resolve this.

Too many tweener holes. Several are wide open and long almost guaranteeing a 3 for intermediate and above players.

13 and 14 are my least favorite kind of hole in disc golf. They found a spot in the woods where there was already a path and made it a fairway. They are short holes and the walk to teach teepad is longer than each hole. If I play this course again, I'll probably skip them. It's easy to do so as the basket for hole 12 is right next to the tee pad for hole 15.

Hole 16 and are also along preexisting paths in the woods, 16 is OK and 17 is quite good.

Hole 18 is 572 feet and wide open. A bit longer than a normal tweener hole, but again, there's not a lot of scoring separation on a hole like that.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this course was fun to play as a stop during a road trip. It has a pleasant environment and some holes are well designed. It wouldn't be good for tournament play because of all the short, open holes and tweener holes.
