Pros: -A mostly recreational course that meanders around ballfields, a few trees, and open holes.

-Holes 1, 7-9 are the only holes that resemble what you'll find on other regulated disc courses. Hole 1 tee has been moved to the right to avoid fence and some trees.

-Holes 8-9 those with distance will enjoy the openness to reach the basket.

-Tees are marked with a green post and most still have the hole number on them.

-Navigation is counter-clockwise, and it would not be possible to get lost here.

-From the bag on the tee a good variety of putter, mid's, fairways, and driver.

-Beginners and Recreational a good layout to work on the game with birdie opportunities. Intermediate and Advanced enjoy the longer open holes, and the course bag.

Cons: -The baskets are in bad shape, and some were leaning. No issues with the putter popping out, put I didn't really have any long putts that hit chains.

-Holes 2 thru 6 are just makeshift. Place a tee here and a basket there, you feel like you're playing against the outfield fence than the course. A few tees are pushed against the fence. Through these holes it just doesn't feel like a disc course at all.

-#8 and 9 the two open holes at about 350 feet. Well, 8 looks like 9, and 9 looks like 8.

-There's a gazebo in the #6 fairway, if somebody is using it, you're going to have to tee on the other side of it, and your now reduced to a putt just outside C2. Very likely joggers could be using the course as well.

-Other than the hole number at the tee and some of those are missing, no information about the hole. You'll need UDisc for par and distance.

-Lost disc potential pretty much only along 8 and 9 on the right side where there are some bushes and trees with thick branches. A wayward disc could lodge up in the branches.

Other Thoughts: Glover Park a great place to bring your family for a picnic, use the playground, and take the kids on a round of disc golf. Even with the four longer open holes not too inspiring for myself. I doubled time it to get myself back on the road toward home. I did enjoy #1 and it's the only hole requiring some type of technical shot that you would find on other courses. Holes 2 thru 6 were just too mickey mouse with a few hopeful shots. However, a good course for newer players to gain confidence or just for a shrug of a shoulders round for others.

My overall rating is anchored on a good scoring opportunity that most players will enjoy at a 3.0. The time to play was 25 minutes.

The Gazebo Hole:

-No 6. Par 3 at 218 feet. Is a dogleg left around the outfield fence at about 70 feet out, a pine tree on the right just 30 feet in front with a 25-foot gap. Your being pushed against the fence, and you're going to have to make the dogleg in a hurry. The gazebo is just 70 feet past the dogleg, and a beautiful gazebo flower bushes growing on three sides, you're coming in on the open side. Basket is in the open if you miss the dogleg their trees waiting for you. I can very easily get an underworld to make the dogleg, but I didn't get it high enough to sail over the gazebo, went right thru it and got caught up in the flower bushes. A little funny to watch, glad nobody was in there.

Notable Basket Placement:

-No. 1 at 201 feet is an open tee to a basket place in heavy pine trees, all encompassed in C1. The tee has been placed away from the fence where it used to be, and a group of trees are no longer in the line, so a direct shot to the green. There's also pine straw throughout C1 Giving a hot skip. I felt this was the only technical shot on the course that wasn't some sort of a throw it out there, and the most enjoyable hole on the course. Fun watching my disc sail thru the pines and skip past the basket.

Pros: Layout - Pitch and Putt short course suited more for youth/families.

Most of the holes are wide open, #1 has some trees around the basket and #6 has some obstacles and offers up a choice between some unusual lines. It's the most interesting hole on the course.

#8 and #9 require 350'ish shots but both are open. Probably more as par 4's for youth.

Course basically loops around some fields and back to the parking lot.

Equipment - Tees are marked by green wooden posts, you play off grass which is fine for this course.

Atmosphere - The park is clean and family friendly. The grass is cut well.
Cons: Layout - This course isn't suited for anything more than youth/families to have some fun and get introduced to the game. If you're an adult and have any experience this course will not interest you.

The holes are essentially wide open and what obstacles are there aren't really any challenge.

Equipment - Basket #8 was on it's side, you can throw the hole but not putt out.

Atmosphere - Other park peoples may get in your way.
Other Thoughts: Solid place to start your kids with disc golf or bring the fam without worrying about other disc golfers on the course. Not really anything more than that.

Pros: -Good introduction course for those who have not played or does not play often. It is pretty easy to birdie and/or par the entire course.
-This is a great course for the kids!
-Easy to navigate
-Good quality baskets.
-Great course to work on your approach shots and short game.
Cons: -Hole 1 is difficult to find if you have never played. It is to the right of the play ground behind the hedges.
-No tee boxes. You just throw beside the post. The ground has been beaten down from other players.
-The course does follow a running/walking trail. Be wary of others that are using the park for their safety.
Other Thoughts: I live walking distance from this course so it is very convenient for me. I usually will play a round or two a week here in the evenings. Great place to practice approach and short game.

Pros: This course was surprisingly more challenging than I thought it would be, primarily for three reasons:

1. The wind (few trees to act as windbreakers)
2. The oppressive eastern NC heat (no shade)
3. While the first 6-7 holes lull you to sleep by how short they are, the last couple holes are 300+ feet.

The other plus of this course: it has the best baskets I've ever played on. Yes, this little beginner-level course has simply awesome baskets.

Navigation was easy and the park was clean.
Cons: Very short. I wouldn't make a special trip here, but it's good for putting practice and field work.

Pros: Short, beginner course circles the perimeter of an athletic complex with little in the way of obstacles. Though there are a few occasions where a disc could enter a field of play, they type of players that will likely make use of this course will not have many issues.
For what is here, there is a decent amount of variation. 1 protects the basket with a ring of trees. 2 has a line of trees that force a semi tunnel shot. 3 and 4 use a fence to force a turning shot. 5 and 6 are a little more straightforward while 8 and 9 will give beginners a chance to test their distance.
It's all very clean and very easy to follow. Not a bad introduction to those who have never seen the game before, especially those whose children or siblings might be playing a game on one of the fields here.
My favorite baskets. Why do Disc Nation baskets always wind up on short niners? Do they only sell in lots of nine? When will a top-notch course make use of these beautiful baskets?
Cons: Not worth playing for the majority of readers to this site. Unless you want to take a family member that has never played before.

Pros: Baskets were decent, easy to navigate. Good warm up course.
Cons: No signage to point you to hole #1. No pads, only 4x4s to indicate a tee box. Mostly open shots, not huge variety.
Other Thoughts: If you live in Nashville, this would be a fine course to play every now and then. It could use some work, but it's not terrible.
