Pros: -- Nice use of land. Elevation comes into play a fair amount with both uphill and downhill throws, and five holes have water in play to some degree. In addition to the water (a small creek/ditch that might not always have water in it), roads/paths that I assume are out of bounds are used to create some interesting peninsula or island holes with good risk/reward. Holes 4-8 have water within 25 feet of the basket, and most of them are more like 15-20 feet. Nos. 5 and 6 also have a path that if as "path and beyond OB" really adds some challenge.
-- Restrooms on site (at the playground near the No. 3 basket). There are also restrooms at the softball field between No. 9 basket and No. 1 tee, but I don't think they are open when the softball field is not in use.
-- Nice Innova Disc Catcher baskets with numbers.
-- Course flow is mostly good. I never needed to consult a map.
Cons: == Tees are natural. Some are not in good shape. If not for the post, you would have a difficult time finding them. The actual tee area is marked by red or blue Innova Play Disc Golf markers in the ground. However, most holes have only one visible, and 8 and 9 have none visible. The previous review mentioned pro and amateur tees, but the orange and white flags are not there now. I searched for the long tees and could not find them.
-- Tee signs have NO information. The post has the number on it, but the signs themselves are ads with NO information.
-- Long walk from 9 to 1.
-- No seating at the tee pads.
Other Thoughts: -- No. 2 plays downhill and slightly left. You can't see the basket from the tee.
-- No. 3 plays uphill with the basket between two playgounds. While not likely, it is possible for a disc to get into the playground areas.
-- No. 7 is listed as about 240 feet in the hole information, but I paced it off as closer to 160. I sailed my drive at least 40 feet long with a disc I have NEVER thrown 280 feet. No. 7 plays in the trees, a nice break after 1-6 are almost wide open.
-- No. 9 has a path (road?) about 2/3 of the way down the fairway.
-- Better signs and markings for tees would raise this to a 3.0.

Pros: Nice new baskets. Easy navigation. Available elevation used well. 2 sets of tees on every hole. Nice mix of open and wooded. Restroom onsite (there is one up the hill just past #3) Course flows well
Cons: Dirt tees. No signs with yardage etc on the tees. Only 9 holes. Fairly long walk between #9 and #1. Multi use park and some holes are very close to fields, playgrounds, walking paths etc.
Other Thoughts: I really liked this little course. It is a welcome addition to our area. I played a bit with a local and he told me there are plans to add tee signs and also 9 more holes in the near future. The short (am) tees are marked with a numbered post and orange flags. The long tees have white flags with no post. If you enter the park at the entrance marked Northside Park veer to the right. Park in front of the senior citizen center. The course is listed as having water and you can see creeks/ ditches that might have water sometimes but there was basically none today as I played. Actual water would improve the design and risk/reward options. Nothing was marked as OB for the ditches and they were not always clearly delineated anyway. Roads and sidewalks were not marked anywhere as well and could be used as OB at times since they wind through the course. With the addition of another 9 and some signage this could be a really nice course. I would play there again as is.
