Pros: -Good variety of shots
-The distances vary from hole to hole, ranges from 200ft to 530ft.
-Park is well-maintained.
-Baskets are in good shape.
-Some elevation changes.
Cons: -You are playing in goose/duck poop, they are everywhere.
-Water runs along 3 holes, if you lose a disc in it, do not go in the water, a friend of mine got staph from the water, it is nasty, you'll probably die from it.
-The park is congested, heavily, in the summertime.
-The layout is confusing and doesn't make any sense so bring a map.
-The back 9 is not easy to find, tee-pads are dirt and are only marked by orange posts sticking out of the ground by about 3 inches.
Other Thoughts: -I live here in Kokomo and to be honest, I'm disappointed with this course, It could be a lot better but the city only gave up half the park.
-If you want to see a good public park course, go to Marion, it's only about 40 minutes east of Kokomo is infinitely better.
-Apparently the trustees board is not happy with this course, the reason the back 9 is dirt is because Kokomo won't allow concrete ones, also there is talk of Kokomo removing this course all together because they are unhappy with traffic its brought in.
-This course could be so much better but Kokomo's trustees board won't allow it to be anything but an afterthought.

Pros: The course plays through a mostly flat park with almost no underbrush and nice mature trees. Nearly all holes play among the mature trees with multiple lines to the hole, with a couple pretty open holes. Two holes bring the creek into play, one playing directly across, the other playing along a bend in the creek so there is a route over the water and a safe route out and around. The water holes add a nice little bit of risk/reward.

Half of the course has nice concrete pads with bolted down tee signs. The tees and signage are in good shape. The baskets are all also in pretty good shape and catch well. A few holes use a nice little hill in the back of the park to add a little elevation to the course. There are a few longer holes to add some challenge and variety.
Cons: Half of the tees are natural with no tee signs. They aren't well marked, and it makes navigation pretty difficult, as well as not offering as good of footing. Navigation is tricky at times, I recommend printing the map available here or pulling it up on your phone, otherwise you'll do some wandering. The park road comes into play at times, and you have to cross it several times between sections of the course.

The course is a little lacking in variety, both in length and hole shape. I felt like I was throwing the same types of shots a lot off the tees here, so it got a little repetitive by the end of the course. It's tough to make a course all that interesting in a flat park, but the trees could have been used a little better to create some different lines.
Other Thoughts: This isn't a bad place to get a round in. The park is nicely maintained, and there are a few nice holes. It's pretty beginner friendly, with no underbrush and alternate tees on the water carry holes. More experienced players won't find too much challenge or variety here.
