Nice little course
Pros: It may seem at first glance that the course would not be great, judging off of the hole distances, but there is a lot here on these shorter holes. There are very tight lanes on most of the holes, especially the first half. You don't need big drives, but a good half of the holes need very accurate drives.
Navigation is never an issue.
Cons: The holes are very much stacked on top of each other. There is a lane of trees separating the neighboring fairways, but you almost always see the other holes. There seemed to be about 15 good holes available. 15 - 17 are mostly open and quite short. There are a number of blind or nearly blind holes.
Other Thoughts: The concrete tee pads are ridiculously large, especially on such a short course, but, hey, it's better than bad tee pads.

For Disc Golfers
Pros: Tee Pads, Signs, Technical holes with variety, mix of shade and sun, benches
Cons: Chiggers, lack of trash cans, only 1 long hole (18)
Other Thoughts: This is a short course but requires accuracy. It can be challenging to stay out of what at times can be very severe rough consisting of tall grass, burs, and some water (unless it is the dead of summer). Without the tall grass and burs it could be pretty vanilla (especially on the back 9 after the city mows). Not really a beginner course IMO. Bring a bag for your trash... please. I emailed the city parks manager but got no response when I asked for more trash cans. As it stands only a few of us are keeping the course from being trashed out. Nice sitting places have been added since opening with a bench at 1 and 9 and one at the 19th hole. Thanks to 2nd shot Scott, and Mitch McChains for those additions!

Putt & Approach
- Nice teepads, signs, and baskets
- Good variety of lines required - hyzer, anhyzer, straight, uphill, downhill
- Well defined fairways
- Clean, well maintained
- Great short-game practice
- Several ace-able holes
- Very short holes, no drivers required
- Feels almost like you're only playing half a round, because you never get a chance to rip a long drive
- Tall grass in the back 9, some holes almost require a spotter
- Update: CHIGGERS! My ankles got destroyed after playing here. This would probably be the biggest reason I wouldn't play here again.
- The holes are short, but not easy. Most have a very tight window to hit, and if you miss it, there is tall grass or thick underbrush to deal with
- There is so much empty land adjacent to this park, it would be nice if they would have expanded it to facilitate some longer holes

Fun little Ace Race
Pros: Excellent challenge with trees; nice short course; this is the place for your first ace! I didn't make any but came close. Almost all baskets are birdie-able! They have two target positions and swap them out from time to time.
Cons: 11-18 are on a watershed. It is super muddy after rain. Plus, when the reeds are high, it can be difficult to locate wayward discs.
Other Thoughts: Lot of fun. Super fast to play- 45 mins or so.

Short and sweet
Pros: Thrilling ace runs, and not to long. Mostly a short game/putting course. Nice replacement for the old Bill Allen course. Quick play after work when the sun is going down is quite nice. The picnic table was a nice addition.
Cons: Burrs, Chiggers and lack of trash cans. Bring your Off. Where is the pole for the practice basket.
Other Thoughts: Perfect course for the late game after work. Chances for multiple ace games.

Don't waste your time
Pros: nice putting practice
Cons: roughs are rough... lost a disc in the tall grass..
Course is not difficult, but because of the tall grass, you can not take out a newbie.
Other Thoughts: Pretty much nothing good about this course.
Grass is overgrown, holes are way to easy.
Don't waste your time here, go somewhere else

Pros: Very close to where I live. Short course with potential. Enjoyed the front 9 and thought i found a gem.
Cons: Needs to be manicured. Dangerous course with no upkeep and the back 9 showed painful. Gave up after losing disc in weeds taller than Shaq.
Other Thoughts: Wish they would clean this up. Would love to play this course regularly

Short and tight, but not managed well
Pros: Some tricky and technical shots makes shooting for Birdie on each whole a challenge but rather thrilling.
1-9 Clean and managed well. The tight cuts and the unique drop makes the front 9 worth playing.
Cons: If the course is managed properly and fairways have a wide enough birth, the course could be a great quick warm up course. But the last time we played the snakes were bad enough that I lost the desire to finish the back 9.
10-18- The overgrown grass posed a health risk; I couldn't see the snake I nearly stepped on, it rattled, I jumped and ran!!
The hole with the moat that hugs the backside of the basket seems rather precarious (it's where I met my venomous buddy). A small bridge to get to other side would help and alleviate the need to search up and down the sewer water bank for a possible crossing (its back towards the basket for the next hole, for reference).
I took my wife to play this course, unlikely I will get her to venture back out there with me.
Other Thoughts: Mow the grass, clean up the moat and create a buzz around a fun, quick, technical mid-range course. It would be ideal to play Dash then Bill Allen.

Putt Putt Golf
Pros: Ace Run shots, clean fairway, and nice signs. History Buffs can get a feel of the area with facts about Dash the horse on the welcome sign.
Cons: Very short shots, again putt putt golf, burs outside the fairway, be prepared to pick hundreds of them off yourself if you go in the ruff or trees, i like water holes but the water there is stagnate and muggy
Other Thoughts: Why is there is practice basket without the post?!

Fun Easy Course
Pros: Good fun course! I have only been playing for a few weeks now so this course was good for me and I actually shot even par. More advance players will probably shoot 8 to 12 under on this course. Previous reviewer needs to drive north of the dog park and park in the baseballs fields bu the course sign. Fun fast course!
Cons: Could have more holes over 300 feet. There are some places where the grass was long but I had no problems finding my disk.
