Other Thoughts: City Park DGC is a little rough around the edges, but it definitely has its moments. The course is a decent, entertaining and sometimes challenging experience. With short, medium, and long sets of tees, there's 54 different shots to play.
While City Park has had a permanent disc golf course since 2010, this current location has only been installed since March 2015. The course equipment (baskets & tee signs) was purchased and installed by the local disc golf club (NO Team), and new tee signs were made and installed in 2016. A new course map was installed by hole 1. It's not that difficult to navigate City Park DGC without a map though, as there isn't a whole lot of walking in between each hole.
There's several benches to sit on around the middle concrete tees.
You'll beg for a breeze in the steamy New Orleans summer, and the wind in the cooler months gives this course a bit more teeth. The middle tees have a lot of variety and they're all a little tricky to birdie, so you won't be bored after a couple rounds. The long tees are not as varied, but should benefit in the future from several trees planted by the club.
