Pros: -- Good use of land. There is no water, but most holes have some amount of elevation change. A lot of that is in the 10-15 foot range. The land is mostly sparsely wooded (holes 6 and 15 are an exception), but the trees are well used.
-- Map of the course at the pavilion near parking lot and tees for 1 and 10.
-- Practice basket.
-- Concrete tee pads are nice and level. Could be a little longer. I think they are 10 feet long.
-- Best examples of making playing the same basket twice feel like two holes are 5/14, where the tee pads are in different directions from the previous basket, and 6/15 where the tee pads are next to each other but the trees create different lines to the basket.
-- Not a lot of seating at the tees, but there are benches, mostly along the walking path.
-- Quality Innova baskets.
Cons: -- Overlapping fairways and numerous other safety issues. Some of this is bound to happen when you have 9 baskets and 18 tee pads, but this course is extreme in that regard.
-- In addition to the dual tee pads where the shorter (back nine) is in a direct line between the longer tee pad and the basket (8/17, 9/18), you've got tee 4. A RHBH shot from there could hit some standing on tees 13, 11, 2, 5 or 14. And basket 9/18 sits near the edge of a skate park. It appears the skate park was put in after the disc golf, but this is still a safety issue. An overthrow of 30 feet on a 250/330-foot hole could hit someone.
-- Short course. Only two holes are longer than 300 feet; one is a downhill throw (4) and the other is a wide-open fairway (9).
-- The walk from 9/18 back to the parking lot is longer than 500 feet.
-- No restroom or water at the course. I assume those are available at the pool when that is open in the summer months.
Other Thoughts: -- This is listed as an 18-hole course, but it really feels like a 9-hole course with two tee pads per hole.
-- In addition to the safety issue on 9/18, this is a boring finishing hole. Eighteen plays 250 feet completely open except for a couple of trees near the basket. But there are not enough trees that I would call it guarded.
-- After 5/14, cross the road and head toward the skate park to reach 6/15.
-- Tee signs are not attached to posts. Most are on nearby trees, and some are well above eye level.

Pros: A really good example of course design that makes the best of what they have, only nine baskets but still eighteen good holes all spread out well and great hole design
Some cool wooded holes
Friendly people at park
Cons: Walk from eighteen to one is long but the way the course lays out for eighteen holes make it kind of necessary so its no big deal
Kinda easy for the most part but its a little park course so its also no big deal
Other Thoughts: Threw a disc in a tree on hole one so be careful not to do that

Pros: Nice Tee Pads
Good signage
Map of the course at the Pavilion. (Nice HQ for the course too)
Good use of elevation and park terrain.
Cons: Long walk from Hole 9/18 back to 10 and the parking lot
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course today. Easy to follow, wide variety of shots, not a very long course by any means, it is a pitch and putt course. But that is what I enjoy playing the most.

Pros: 1. Lots of terrain change with uphill & downhill shots.
2. Course is not crowded.
3. Holes are well-marked.
Cons: 1. Holes #7 and #16, which share the same basket, rely mostly on luck with minimal help from skills. It is understandable why the designer would design a tougher hole than the others, but this is just too abruptly different from the rest of the course.
2. It was quite windy today. Since I have only played this course once, it might be a fluke, but my guess is wind is a somewhat frequent factor.
3. The course is fairly short overall, though I do not recall any holes that were just simply too short or easy aces.
4. The distance between hole #9 & #10 (which is the same as hole #1 with a different tee box) is pretty far, but I'm not sure what the designer could have done differently.
Other Thoughts: Enjoyed this course overall, mostly due to the up & down nature of the terrain. Will play it again in the future. Interested to hear what others think about hole #7 (#16).
