Pros: -Makes use of the elevation changes in the park
-Uses mature trees to create defined lines
-Pretty good baskets
Cons: -Dirt tees
-No maps on tee signs
-Holes 1 and 7 need to be lengthened, and there is space to do so
-All holes should be labeled as par 3s (the pars given on the signs are WAY too generous)
-Hole 9's basket is a little too close for comfort to the swing set
-Often the next tee is too close to the basket, so people throwing on the hole behind you could easily hit you, or they'd have to wait for you to tee off on the next hole first.
Other Thoughts: It looks like there is still space in the park for 9 more holes (as long as they keep the length at pitch n' putt levels), so I would like to see it happen.
PS: I'd even be willing to design it for free! ;)
This is still a fun course even with all its drawbacks, and I feel like with a few major changes here and there this could become a really good course, because the park really is an excellent piece of property for disc golf.

Pros: This course is well laid out with left, straight and right throws. There's just enough elevation on throws to provide a bit of a challenge and a bit of reward (when throwing down hill). The park is clean, well maintained and relaxing. The few people we met were friendly.
Cons: None of the markers have maps. Hole 6 is the hardest to find the basket. But what's worrisome is that you can't see where you are throwing so you could hit somebody.
Hole 8 plays too close to the playground. Had there been children we would have skipped this hole.
Other Thoughts: I liked this course. The holes had enough diversity to make it interesting.

 Layout in question

Pros: This is a great little course to get someone started in the game. Well maintained, many shorter holes (two pars 2's) Took my 12 year old grandson and we had a lot of fun, but the park was not heavily populated that day, as local schools had just started back up again.
Cons: The layout of the final 3 holes is questionable, from a safety standpoint, and honestly hole 9 is the worst possible scenario I have ever played in disc golf. Way too close to playground equipment off the tee, and rediculously close to a swing set, with the basket placement. If it was 40 feet from the swingset, I would be surprised. This needs a serious look before someone gets hurt.
Other Thoughts: There appears to be other wooded areas nearby, where the holes could be fashioned through the trees, and remove the interaction with the playground/shelters completely. I could see this little course going to a 2.5 rating if the design is changed a little.
