Pros: This course is well designed and interesting to play. Open shots and woods shots, hills and flat, right, left, straight. Uses natural landscape to give the holes character. Fun to play. Not too technical and good for family play. Great tee pads (concrete) and signage (simple but effective)
Cons: Wish it had multiple tee locations
Other Thoughts: I wish I could play this course more often! Fun!

Pros: The flow of the course is more fluid than in the past. Much more challenging and technical than the past design. Signs to point you in the right direction to the next pad. Shaded in many spots. Charcoal grills, and plenty of picnic tables to chill after throwing.
Cons: Be aware of the bacon. They routinely roll through and hide around the corner to catch people going 25 down the 15mph drive. Just be cautious. Bring extra H20, no refill stations.
Other Thoughts: HAVE A SPOTTER for hole 3! Its thick to the right.

Pros: Most of the holes are not too long, but are a challenge nonetheless. Nice mix of elevation and terrain. Some holes are all tress and a few are wide open.
Cons: Navigation can be difficult if you are new to the course but recently added signs make it easier. This course seems to be the busier of the two so long waits can be expected during peak times, especially when people go out with more than four people in a group. Oh, and watch your disc, there are a lot of places to lose them.
Other Thoughts: Nice warmup course before taking on the longer south course.

 A Fun Course With a Decent Variety

Pros: Brewer Park North is located mostly in a wooded area, but some holes are out in the open. This course offers a nice variety of layouts, which includes blind tee shots, dog legs, narrow fairways, and mostly open fairways. Some holes encourage you to use backhand throws while others encourage forehand throws. The length of the holes sometimes vary, and most of the wooded holes are set up so that the trees serve as strategically challenging obstacles. As an added bonus, hole 9 has two tee boxes you can choose to use, one of which is about 100 feet farther back than the other. Also, each basket has a small red arrow pointing in the direction of where the next tee box is.
Cons: I just wish something would be done about the irrigation issues for holes 3-6 (this is also a big issue for part of the South course). The ground in that area floods so easily, and it stays wet and swampy for a long time after it rains. I do like the way those holes are set up (though the 6th hole could be longer), but they're almost unplayable if it has rained recently. The location of the 1st hole looks like an accident waiting to happen. Although I like the way it's designed, I don't think it's a good idea to have the hole located next to the parking lot. It seems like a car could easily get hit by a bad throw that sails off to the right, and I really don't feel comfortable parking my car so close to a hole like that. The wooded holes have very little grass because of the tree cover, and they also have a bunch of roots sticking out of the ground. Also, mosquitoes can be kind of bad in this area during the summer. If there's one other problem I have, it's this: Considering how hugely popular Brewer Park is, you would think they would've installed brand new baskets and tee boxes when they redesigned the courses, creating what is now the North course and South course. Instead they just moved some of the old, rusty baskets and cracked tee pads to different spots in the park, and left the other ones alone. This is really disappointing because a lot of these things are in bad shape and really need to be replaced.
Other Thoughts: Although it has a few flaws, overall I think this is a fun course that offers a decent variety of layouts, some of which can be quite challenging for most players. Keep in mind, though, that it can be kind of crowded on a nice day, especially on the weekends, and you also might not want to play here for a little while after it rains.
