Pros: Some open holes, some water holes, just some holes. Baskets are fine. Some good holes to huk on and some placement shots holes as well
Cons: NO teepads. What they have are horrible. very little flow to the course. It just is not an exciting course. Quite boring actually. In a large park with lots of foot traffic. Kids actually hanging off the baskets when were gettingready to throw.
Other Thoughts: Ok course no charge to play. Needs teepads and good signage. Not a bad afternoon just nothing to really get excited about

Pros: Relatively new 18 hole course located in the well maintained Estero Recreation Center. Decent layout with challenging distances. Water incorporated into the layout. Baskets all work well and basic signage provided at most holes. Bathroom located on site and map available indoors. Course holds great potential.
Cons: No uniformity with tee pads; many are dirt, a couple are rubber and others yet have carpet placed by the tee area. The temporary, laminated signs are falling apart and need to be replaced. The numbers on some signs do not match the numbers on the corresponding baskets. Navigation a bit tricky and would be helped by more prominently placed "next tee" signs. Water hazards make disc loss a disinct possibility. No benches or bag poles anywhere.
Other Thoughts: Estero has many of the elements of a quality course, but currently needs much work to improve the playing experience here. Quality tee pads and top flight signage are musts for any highly rated disc golf course, and currently Estero has neither. Many "little things"- clearly marked pro/am tees, matching basket/hole numbers, benches, more navigational arrows, etc- must be addressed. The people who put this course together have their hearts in the right place. I'd be interested in coming back to Estero in 6 months to a year to see what improvements have been made.
