 Worth a visit, if you don't mind losing discs

Pros: The park has a unique "old Florida" feel to it and many unique holes as well. It's a short, technical track that will definitely test your accuracy and nerve.

There's a lot to think about strategy-wise and those with strong emotional/mental games will be at an advantage.
Cons: There's a very good chance of losing discs in the "creature from the black lagoon"-type water that you won't want to wade into.

The shape of the available land is not conducive to smooth course flow. The routing is tricky to follow and course signage is inadequate.

The course is not good for tournament play due to the routing issues and some holes crowding on each other.

The tee pads are small and some are in poor repair.
Other Thoughts: This course is very unique. I enjoy playing it a lot, but always pull out some old beater discs that I don't mind losing to play with.

Remember: Don't be a dirty disc golfer. If you pack it in, pack it out!

 Plastic Eating Course!!

Pros: The course offers many challenges for all skill levels. Mostly tight technical shots and on almost all holes water comes into play, either over, around, or along side. Nice neighborhood and locals.
Cons: water, Water, WATER!!! Lost plastic is something that should be expected, I played here yesterday and didn't loose any for the first time. In fact, I have a bag full of factory seconds and old discs that I call the lakeview bag. I wish the course had atleast 1 or 2 holes that top 300ft. The course is tough to navigate as there are no signs to direct you where to go next, but if you look at the basket one of the basket wires is colored to destinguish what direction to go for the next hole (local tip). Cleanliness and park maintenance are almost non-existant.
Other Thoughts: I play here from time to time to improve my short game but if this was the only course around I would definately play less.
