Excellent beginner course with some technical shots
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: - Gorgeous area
- Clean fairways and well marked Tees
- Well maintained as it is a popular park
- Some technical shots, great for putter-only rounds or beginners
Cons: - Can be a bit "people heavy" at times
- Can be a bit "simple" for veterans/cannon-arms.
Other Thoughts: Concerns about maintenance and course visibility appear to have been addressed since those reviews were posted. All in all, this is a fun little course, and a great warmup or fast round on a busier day where you don't have time for a full round at Pfrommer or Basil.
We had a few holes where fishers were present, but they were only really at risk on the first hole, and were very polite when we alerted them that we would be throwing plastic discs in their general area.

Not a bad 9 hole course
Pros: New course map on the east side of the bathrooms.
New tee signs on every hole, real nice tee signs too.
They rearranged the course in 2016 to improve the flow.
Easy, close parking.
You won't need your cart or carry a lot of discs.
Nice, short holes 160' up to 250'
Not much chance of losing a disc unless you really shank one out into the ponds.
Not a lot of players there so you can take your time, throw multiples and just practice and relax.
Cons: Goose crap everywhere! Some as big as a small dogs.
Lots of annoying geese walking around.
Lots of walkers, joggers, dog walkers, and fishermen around holes 1, 2, 3, and 4. The rest of the holes were fine
Other Thoughts: Beside the TONS of goose crap and the people, I really enjoyed the course. You'll only need a putter, a midrange and a fairway driver if you want.
It was a great course for me to try out a few different throwing putters I have and a couple different midranges and see what each one does. I'll go back again. It was a really nice day so maybe there would be less people at other times.

Decent for what it's intended for.
Pros: Nice space. Well maintained. Options to make a fun and moderately challenging course. Water in play on a couple holes.
Cons: No signs or tee markers.
Other Thoughts: I played early in the morning on a Friday... Only saw one walker on the course not sure if it gets worse at other times. I followed the basic flow my first time around and it's a bit wimpy as mapped. Second time around I made my own course following the basic out and back flow and I really enjoyed it. In my home town I still have to play object golf so making up a course is no problem for me, glad to have baskets and options.

Used to be fun...
Pros: It's a disc golf course. If you're a beginner you might enjoy a round here assuming you can find the tees.
Cons: Other park goers will always be an issue at this course. It is generally pretty crowded with people fishing, walking, etc. The redesign took the walkers out of the picture but the first 3 holes are still in high traffic areas. There's also a ton of goose poo on this course, land mines everywhere.
No marked tees, you need to ballpark them using a map. Some of the baskets were also put into the wrong spots which was confusing and made me do a double take on the map to make sure I was playing in the right order.
Other Thoughts: In an attempt to make the course more beginner friendly, all the fun factor and challenge from the previous layout was sacrificed. Beginner tees and a slight redesign would have done the job. Insteads it's now a poorly marked, putter only affair. If you're going to make a course geared towards beginners, it really should be better marked. I have a feeling people will just play basket to basket or safari layouts assuming the course gets much play at all.
I used to play North Ponds on occasion in the past as it was very close to my old place. With the changes, I don't think I'll be making a return trip any time soon.
