Baskets are in shape and in good places throughout the park. Could make for some really interesting safari rounds.
This is not a course it is 9 random baskets spread through a park. Baskets and potential lines are in close proximity to other amenities such as a playground which would/could make the course dangerous.
Other Thoughts:
This is truly a practice area and kind of a waste of a big chunk of money if there is no course to play.

Pros: 1) Short beginner friendly course

2) Nice Innova Discatchers, very attractive baskets and in good shape and properly installed.

3) Plenty of options on how to play this as a course if you want. You can throw hyzer, anhyzers, spike shots, turnovers, etc . . . the possiblities are endless.

4) How many kids will pick up the sport because this park is here and free from lots of other disc golfers?
Cons: 1) No tees to indicate an actual hole or layout, this could confuse people that don't know what they are looking at.

2) This is a very small park that doesn't truly give people a chance to throw long distances.
Other Thoughts: It is what it is . . . a perfect place to practice for the avid player . . . noone around you can try different shots. It also could act as a perfect 1st round of disc golf for many young kids and first time disc golfers. I almost feel like it would be a place I would be willing to donate a dozen used discs to be placed in a bin of some sort to give people a chance to try the sport at no cost. It might be worth a shot!
