Unsafe 9 Hole Course

+ Concrete Tees

+ Innova DiscCatcher Baskets

+ Hole lengths are great for beginners and this course is a true pitch and putt course.
- Multiple holes play around a playground and I can see good and errant shots possibly hurting people.

- Hole 9 has you throw around an active play place in the park.

- A few holes play very close the property lines of multiple residential houses. Errant throws have the potential to cause damage to personal property.

- Pitch and Putt. This is great for beginners but is too easy for Rec players and above.

- Innova DiscCatcher Baskets are old and starting to rust. The still work properly but it makes the course look unprofessional.
Other Thoughts:
Honestly, this course should be taken out of the ground for safety purposes. Its great that this course exists but it shouldn't be played unfortunately

Pros: Nice little park. The course is well signed and easy to navigate. Concrete tee pads and signs at every hole that say the par and distance.
Cons: This course is insanely short. Hole 9 is under 100 feet. All the pars are too high. If they reduced all the pars by one (made the par fours into par threes and the par threes into par twos), it would be a much more accurate representation of how easy this course is.
Other Thoughts: Great course for practicing midrange and putting. Fun course.

Pros: Open and well maintained park. All baskets are in visible locations. concrete tees are in good shape.
Cons: Closely grouped baskets in this open course are confusing to first time players. Short holes include fairways and baskets near peoples backyards and a playground area.

"Putter distance" for all holes (shorter then 150ft per hole)

Pros: Signs, concrete tee pads, baskets all in good shape. The park is well maintained. No problems following the layout.
Cons: Very short. Range from 93' to 322', with most around 150'. Fairways are very close together, so an errant shot on some holes will be heading toward others playing the course. Several holes boarder along a playground area, so non-discers are also at some risk.
Other Thoughts: The layout takes full advantage of what space is available, there just isn't very much room. If the course starts to get a lot of play, it should be moved to another park in town (there are lots of them). The upside is that this is a very good course for beginners to start with, as you can not get into very much trouble. If you have played a bit, the challenge isn't really there. However, having shot a 21 on the first trip around the course, I can tell you it still feels pretty good to shoot a low score.

Pros: The grass is mowed short. The baskets are good. There is a store in town where they have a small selection of discs.
Cons: The holes are very short. There are not many courses nearby.
Other Thoughts: Some of the holes have no obstructions and are less than 100 ft! This would be a good starter course for rookies. For a more skilled person it is a good course to work on their mid-range and approach.
