Pros: - real aerial map at start and great maps for each tee
- not much interference with other park activities (i think they've reconfigured some holes such that there are no cross-path issues that past reviewers have mentioned with the jungle gym and bathrooms)
- nearly impossible to get lost on the course until hole 9
Cons: - it's just 9 holes in a typical mowed park setting, nothing really noteworthy
- hole 9 was hard to get to, and signs don't have a (next tee) pointer
- I know it's a beginner course, but calling several holes par 4? Par 4 isn't something you just bandy about in Disc Golf!
Other Thoughts: For just getting started with the sport, I can't really imagine a better course. Lots of opportunities for birdies for beginners, and the consistency of the course makes it easy to keep playing through.

I can't think of a way for the designers to have used this space much better than they have - trees and OB come into play on some holes, and there's not much interference with other park activities. I'd play here again, especially if I was with some beginners.

Pros: Outstanding job of integrating 9 short, but technical holes around and through an otherwise great family park. The narrow fairways and tall trees beg for some accurate Tomohawk & Thummer teeshots. Very nice flow, and easy to follow even for a first timer.
Cons: Just ignore the Par 4 signage and play every hole as a Par 3. HOT. Those mature trees are quite sticky and hungry for discs. Consider going with low hysers, if the wind conditions don't allow for the proper overhand. Baskets have definitely seen better days!
Other Thoughts: I played on a Sunday afternoon with a couple of really large picnics going on, and a number of kids in the park. Even with all that going on, I didn't feel like my shots would get too close, although I did give heads up a few times before teeing off.
Why aren't there more of these type of courses out there in more neighborhoods???
Uniqueness: A- (better than most courses of this type)
Difficulty: B (flat; hungry and grabby trees)
Fun Factor: B+ (fun to score; tough to bogey)
Aesthetics: B+ (clean & cute; mowed grass)
