Pros: 1) Nice course map at the beginning, lets you get a feel of whats to come.
2) Very nice signage, hole number, distance, par and mini map at each tee
3) Concrete tees
4) Score card box was stocked with cards and pencils!
5) Good variety of hole length and shot shaping
6) Very good flow to the course
7) Clean, well-maintained and litter free
Cons: 1) Seems like some of the holes are crammed in to an already existing park with a lot of amenities, the obstacles you will deal with include roads, trees, the pool, a playground, a basketball court, tennis courts, volleyball courts and 3 baseball fields, not to mention the long grass and brambles on 5 and 6.
Other Thoughts: For a town of this size (1,730 people) this course exceeded all expectation. This is a nice course with no real competition around. more small towns and cites could follow this model.

 Longer City Park Course

Pros: -Surprising length and hole variety for a city park course in a smaller town.
-Nice baskets
-Concrete tees that are a bit narrow but not bad.
-A few ace runs and biridie shots but other holes where you need to work to get a 3.
-A nice mix of obstacles and trees to serve as challenges. They do use fences and buildings while I prefer natural challenges but this course needs a few more challenges.
-A nice course map at the beginning of the course near the large parking lot and nice signs on every hole with all the info you need to know.
-Nicely mowed, cleaned and maintained.
Cons: -Lots of bugs!
-Tees are a bit narrow as I mentioned but they aren't too bad.
-Some holes may be too close to park functions. Hole 9 runs along the baseball field and hole 4 crosses volleyball, tennis, and playground areas.
-Fences used as an obstacle which I don't really like.
-Could throw your disc in the trees along holes 5 and 6 and there is some underbrush. Could lose a disc in there.
-Some may find the short holes boring but I don't mind an ace run or two on a course.
Other Thoughts: I was surprised to see how long and well cared for this park appears to be. It is in a small town in my county where there isn't a lot of quality and cared for disc golf courses. I would stop by if in the area but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to play here. It is of good quality for the land they had to work with and for the size of this town.

Pros: Good sign at hole 1 showing layout. Concrete tee pads (narrow), signage and new baskets on each hole. Easy to navigate. Well manicured on most holes.
Cons: Not much variety on holes. The short holes are bland. Signs don't designate what is OB - all sorts of other park features come very much into play (holes 4, 6 and 9 come to mind) and there is a good chance of throwing close to another park user on occasion. Hole 9 is super hazardous when the baseball field is being used due to people parking on or near the fairway and left field being well into the throwing lane for everyone.
Other Thoughts: Pretty good use of the tight park space. Suprisingly nice variety of long and short shots. Try to play it when a baseball game isn't being played. Beginners to intermediate will be challenged by this course while better players may get bored. Course gradually gets harder and then ends on a fairly simple note.
