Aesthetic-- plays through a small narrow neighborhood park and through the neighborhood itself (in many places) non-dgers and neighboring yards are a constant threat, throw wisely.

Routing and nav-- pretty easy. big white buckets with the hole number on them mark the way. the only tricky spot is #11 to #12. After finishing #11, turn right and walk down the road about three houses and look right. #12 is there. I would also say that you will most likely need a guide for the first time through because the intended target isn't always obvious.

Teepads-- for what the course is, carpet is more than adequate. they are all in good shape, level and in good repair.

Baskets-- pink powder coated DisCatchers help to aide in visibility in the thick woods.
Lengths-- very short course for the most part as the park it is in is like one city block long by 200' wide at most. Because of this the variety does suffer a bit but they did the best they could with a very challenging piece of land.

Rough-- super rough in places. I lost a disc in a pile of branches and miscellaneous for >20minutes. I found it though.

Uncontrollables-- from psycho neighbors to buggy areas there area lot of challenges to this park being great but they do a good job with what is there.
Other Thoughts:
From what I was told, Terrace Park was a dumping ground for yard waste/garbage and anything else you can think of. Todd has done a great job repairing what was once blight to what is a good place for all age groups to learn and cherish the sport of disc golf.

Pros: Exactly what it was designed for... Ace Race & Glow course so the course is made up of alot of skilled up shots. Longest Hole is 232 ft but most are about 200 ft. 24 Tee's and 11 baskets in a less than 3 acre parcel which plays over some yards which are OB. 1st tee starts on the right side of the house. Fun little course!
Cons: It's new and needs to be marked better as it can be confusing without a course map. New Big 2 x 3 ft Course Map at both entrances of the park and tee signs to follow soon.
Other Thoughts: 24 tee's in this small area? Great utilization of space but because some baskets are played up to 3 times from different tee's you will want to be aware of where other players on the course are. Safety 1st Loud barking Dog with big teeth at first tee, don't put your hands over the fence. I'm upping my rating because the park is getting nicer and more manicured as time progresses :) Visit our website @ for more information :)
