Pros: Short and sweet front 4, interesting wooded 5-8, open longer 9. Great park for kids to play on in the center of the course while you play
Cons: High muggle traffic. Hole can be clear and then someone oblivious to the course can walk through. Can be a little dangerous, but they’ve done the best they can to make it enjoyable for all.

 Great for beginners

Pros: This course is clearly designed for beginners and it excels at that. The distances are all around 100 feet. With that being said it's a really nice little course. For course baggers like myself this is a great place to just take a putter and check off a course. There are concrete tees on every hole. Plenty big enough for the distances here. All in great condition as well. The pins are DISCatchers that also are all in fantastic shape. The first 4 holes and hole 9 are all out in the open section of the park with 5 through 8 tucked back into the little wooded area.
Cons: This course is for newer players and kids so take it for what it is. It's short but that's by design. It's easy by design. There's really not any cons that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: This is nothing to go any ways out of your way to play. Probably not even worth it even if close by unless as a warm up or to check it off your list. This course is amazing at what it is intended for though. I gave it a 2.5 to reflect how it compares to all the courses I've played and for how people use this site. Not to disrespect what is here which is a fantastic beginner course.

Pros: Great for kids
Great for beginners
Grow the sport
Short technical shots
Clean and well maintained
Cons: short distances but this course does exactly what it is designed to do. Obviously this course is designed for children so in that respects this course has no cons.
Other Thoughts: This is a nice little course in a nice little park. I like how the playgrounds are in the woods. A good place to bring your kid and teach them how to throw. Great kind of park to grow the sport.

Pros: The disc golf course is well laid out and easy to access. The holes are short which makes it perfect for kids. My son and I have been playing this disc golf course since he was 4. Holes 1-4 & 9 are on the edge of a large field, 5-8 are in the woods. Holes 4 and 9 have high grass along their edges but nothing difficult to retrieve a bad throw from The woods are a great density and have well cleared fairways and paths. It attracts casual family players so play isn't rushed and you don't have to watch out for pros who may get impatient with kids.
Cons: It can be muddy in the w
Cons: It can be muddy in the woods and there is a splash pad at the park so if you take your kid you may want to allow time to splash and get wet.
Other Thoughts: The holes are short, the combination of woods and field makes it a great play with the family.

Pros: A course designed to introduce children to the sport, and intended to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the nine holes at Inlow aren't long (the biggest is the 185' hole 4), but they do provide variety and challenge for the intended group. Fantastic signage, large, level, and flush concrete tees, and new DisCatcher baskets flow nicely counter-clockwise from the kiosk map (less than 40' from the handicapped parking spaces) first, for four holes around the open space, then again looping nicely through the dense but forgiving woods, and finishing back to the beginning on hole nine. Oh, and there's a well-executed practice basket setup at the start, as well.

The shot selection includes potential line options on every hole, and there are even a couple of gut-checks for newer players: holes four and nine have long grasses within reach, and the woods holes give you lots of tree kick potential. It was pretty impressive to get into the woods holes and see that they each had a 'best' line of flight, but that two or three options were there for each tee shot. That's not to say that players rated above Rec will be sorely challenged here. As an Intermediate level player, I'm playing Deuce or Die here, and working on my short game. And it's fun for all that!

Kudos for the fully accessible park in general: the sidewalks spill out into the park invitingly for wheelchair access from the beautiful, new shelter and bathrooms (in season of course) and splash pad water play area (likewise!). The woods paths and disc golf fairways have been generously mulched, and there are two playgrounds in there which don't conflict with the disc play. In all, this is a beautiful application of a family and accessible park.
Cons: If you want 'distance' in your disc golf, this isn't the course for you. Head on over to The Hill at Northview: it's about a two minute drive up the hill to the west. And if anything, the opening shots slightly favor a left to right line of flight. There isn't any elevation to speak of here (at most, the little artificial knoll ringing the opening holes).
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course as a warm up when I hit town after a two hour car ride. And as a middling competitive player, I started thinking how embarrassed I'd be in my score if I didn't get 20 or under here. Since I managed it for two rounds, and hit metal twice, I felt like it's a fun little course. And my course rating is really based not on the challenge, but on how well this course accomplished its objective. Nice work!

Pros: This is a great course for Beginners and a quick short game/approach/Putt course. It has a Practice put game basket that my son loves to warm up on. The playground and water splash park are nice. Very clean bathrooms. Great to break discs in on with out loosing them like you can on other courses. Has a nice wooded section to get a taste of the woods. A true friendly fun introduction into disc golf. Only one disc really needed.
Cons: -it's short, no drivers needed unless just breaking them in.
-no bag really needed.
-you can't finish a beer before your done.
-Really there is nothing wrong it's what it's supposed to be. A introduction to Disc Golf.
Other Thoughts: There are three other courses nearby for more experienced people. This is a perfect one to warm up on then hit one of the others nearby or to build up your skills to work up to the other courses. Great for Families after a few time around you can cool off in the Splash park.

Pros: This is a great course. New tees, new signs, new baskets. It was designed to teach new players how to play disc golf not to mention it is ADA Certified.

It has mulch around every basket and throughout the woods.

It has great variety. There are holes in the open (1 & 9), holes with w few trees (1, 2, & 3), and heavily wooded holes (5 - 8). There are also a few holes with tall grass bordering the hole (4 & 9).

Since it was built for beginners, an intermediate or professional has a great chance to get a hole in one on any hole. If you miss, you will gain great experience putting on holes in the open and in the woods.

This is a great practice course for more expended players. A change of pace if you are looking for a relaxing day of disc golf.

A great course to take you friend, child, elder, significant other, etc. to teach them how to play.
Cons: The holes are short. If you are looking for more of a challenge, The Hills is not even a half mile away and Dillion is about a mile and a half away. If you want less of a challenge, play a loop of 1-4 & 9. Holes 5-8 are in the woods and use the same path for entry/exit.

Course can be busy. I have never ran into this soccer practice issue but I have ran into several large groups playing disc golf. These groups seem to throw multiple discs at a time in attempt to get an ace. (Confidence builder can be a Pro I guess)

I personally have never experienced a con for this course. Great use of land, great area of town, and built for a purpose.
Other Thoughts: I was extremely impressed with this course. Dennis does a great job with his course design. I took my girlfriend here over the summer to teach her disc golf and now she is no longer afraid to play a more challenging course with me.

I can't wait for the trees on holes 1-4 to grow a little bit. It will provide that much more of a challenge, not to mention shade!

If you come with kids there are a few playgrounds, a splash park, and nice trails in the woods.

Once you have mastered this course, feel free to visit the other courses in Northeast Indianapolis (Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, and Castleton) for more of a challenge.

Pros: I like to play this course with my putter. It's a nice mix of open and wooded holes. None of which require a great arm. The wooded holes are a bit tight but doable.
Cons: may not be playable on a busy day. we've been lucky and always had the park to ourselves.
Other Thoughts: Great playground if you have kids.

Pros: Take the kids! The distances, from 120 to 185 feet, are family friendly.

Take yourself! A great place to practice an experienced putt and approach game. Enough trees to force you to shape your shots.
Cons: Short. A typical driver thrown by an experienced thrower will go past the baskets.

The grounds are also used for other events, like youth soccer practice, dog walking (watch your shoes!), and other family park type events.
Other Thoughts: I credit this course for helping my wife and kids get excited about disc golf. The quality of the grounds, the excellent baskets, and the shorter distances made the sport accessible to all of us.

Pros: Nice pads, signage and baskets. Easy to follow markings. GREAT for bringing your kids or practicing with your mid-range/putter. Nice mix of open field and woods.
Cons: No real cons, this is perfect for it's purpose. This is not a place for big D. You won't need a driver. Only 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: Play it with your kids. Play it with your mid-range/putter. Great place to fine tune your aces.
