Pros: Optional Mandos, mix of shot types, good introduction to tournament style courses with an optional Island Green hole. Some wooded holes, other more open holes.

Several different course design tricks like guarded baskets and elevated baskets make different techniques necessary.

Pretty good signage, arrows pointing to next tees and tee signs. The signs could actually show a map or something, but they're a lot better than nothing.
Cons: Hole might be as bad as everybody says, but I played with some locals and apparently nobody actually PLAYS hole 1.

Is that good course design? No. Should it be fixed? Probably. Does it really affect the casual round when you're just going to check out a course? No!

Just do like the locals, play basket 9 from somewhere near the parking lot, basket 2 is just a VERY short walk behind basket 9 in that direction, and the course flows great this way.

The only other thing I don't like is on the actual hole 9 there's not a lot of places to avoid going in the rough, there's a 6' wide path between a ton of prickers and tall grasses, and not a good bailout around the outsides.
Other Thoughts: I think this course is actually pretty cool, but I can see why a lot of people don't like it.

I don't think it deserves such a low score, but I think people are unwilling to bend the rules for casual play. Let's be perfectly clear here, there is no umpire in the bushes with a whistle that is going to kick you out if you miss a mando. Nobody's going to beat you with a stick or fine you for not following the island green rule.

Just play the game to have fun, play the course the way you want to, and you'll have an enjoyable round on this at times challenging but never truly unfair course.

Pros: has baskets and is better then a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Cons: The only course I've ever played to the wrong basket. Oh yeah the loose rocks are crazy. IF YOU WANT TO TURN AN ANKLE PLAY THIS COURSE. It has tee signs on 95 percent of the holes but they make no sense.
Other Thoughts: The worst thing is this course could have been so much more. I think I would laugh in someone's face if they said they wanted to play here.

Pros: A mix of shots here. Some open long rips and lots of tight wooded technical holes. And my favorite's are the few that tee off in the open but you must get up through a tight alley to a basket in the woods.
Cons: Hole #1 is terrible. It was originally a long open shot from near the road towards #2 across what is now the new baseball field. Now it is just a 500' long blind shot after blind shot mess up to the basket. Very strange and upsetting.

Most of my other con's lie with the back nine. Not much variety from #13 on out, short, tight and wooded except for #18 which is a marathon hook through the woods.. Strange/unrealistic mando's also make you wonder.
Other Thoughts: Love the practice hole near the parking lot. Signs on every hole make navigation pretty easy. But finding #10 is tough. Go across the park road after #9 and head for the swing set. Tee is located behind them throwing over a slight hill to a wooded basket.

 Decent course, might need a chainsaw

Pros: It was a decent wooded course. Some of the holes seemed inventive through the use of mandatories and basket placement. The park also has a nice restroom at the beginning/end of the course.
Cons: As stated before, Hole 1 is atrocious. There needs to be an amateur tee for that hole. Additionally, I feel that the tees needed to be more clearly marked, as it is difficult to determine where you are actually supposed to throw from. Sometimes a bit hairy in the woods.
Other Thoughts: Although the park is shared with many other activities, the disc golf course completely avoids potential problems with other park users.

Pros: There are a lot of realy nice woods shots and it is realy layed out nice. the holes were well marked and easy to find. (short of the first) 16 read the sign there is a very interesting manditory that is a fun spin on that hole if your willing and skillful enough to try it
Cons: the first hole is the most discouraging hole i have ever played. I played in eairly june and it was so saveirly over grown just use a mid range short all of your shots so you can keep it on the fairway after that your free and clear to let loose and throw your brains out, on 17 i would not sugest trying for the basket with a dx because the basket is on a pile of rocks that if you hit hard enough you will break a disk.

Pros: Accuracy is the name of the game at times and this course demands it.A very good course to play all your shots. Thumbers and Tomahawks a must.
Cons: Hole # 1... have skipped this hole more times than we can count. Has become custom to play 2-18 and then throw at #19as a 3.(Practice basket) from outside of basket of 18. If your off your game a little you could have a long day. Tees can be a little rough at times.As this is my home course I wanted to get a drive together to bring cement tees to this course, But until work is completed on hole #9 and #10 it wouldn't make much sense as I cant see the Tees current placement remaining
Other Thoughts: This course continues to be a work in progress. and even more so now. It looks like there will be more work needed as it looks like there will be construction through the ninth Hole and a road is being put in from new student housing area that is splitting Hole #10

Accuracy Over Power

Pros: Don't have alot of power? Not a problem here, accuracy is the name of the game at this course. Signs make it easy to navigate. Cool in the woods on a hot summer day.
Cons: Very tight fairways. Throwing overhand makes or breaks your game for too many holes. Few instances of elevation change. Hole 1 is very hard and if you miss the fairway you may never see your disc again. There is a pond in the middle of the course, but it is never utilized. A shame. Lack of variety.
Other Thoughts: Average course all the way around, but it will definately give you a lesson in throwing for accuracy. Don't try to do too much, just hit the fairway with every shot. There are a few really fun, well designed holes, but there are also many bland, boring holes. Par for the course is not listed on the website, but the signs list it. It's 56, holes 1 and 18 are par 4's the rest are par 3's

Pros: Baskets in good shape with nice markers to next tee, Tee sites fairly easy to find with signage for each hole. Possible signature holes (# 6 with Mando & 90 degree turn in fairway, # 12 open field drive & then into woods) Interesting mix of holes from # 7on through to # 18 with some elevation in play, in and out of the woods.
Cons: Tough start on # 1 where an errant throw is greeted by tangled brush on both sides. Even fairway on # 1 was high weeds. Holes 2 - 6 play much the same way, no real variety until you hit # 7. Transition from 9 to 10 is tough (no signs) if you don't know where you are going.
Other Thoughts: This park was very busy with soccer tournament but it had no effect on parking or play. Woods were nice and cool on a very hot and humid day, caught in downpour on the last few holes but well sheilded by woods there also. Drove some 30 miles to play this but may not return soon.

 Disc eating trees

Pros: Many interesting holes, mostly wooded. Forces broad range of shots on relatively short but challenging holes. Most of the wooded holes lack understory, easy to find wayward discs. Course generally well marked.
Cons: This course strikes me as a bit sadistic, at least for someone as un-accurate as me, left me questioning several posted pars. Many holes have tight fairways, some with considerable brush that gobble discs (#1 & 9 in particular). Poison ivy adundant in spots (various holes in back 9).
Other Thoughts: Leave the distance driver at home, sunglasses won't do much good either.

Look out for baseball spectators peeing in the woods.

Pros: Located just west of Rochester, NY. Most holes play in the woods. A nice course that is still rough around the edges. Great location for a course except one hole plays near a little league field. (This may have changed) Most holes play short but ae not easy.
