Pros: DISCatcher baskets with numbers, two rows of chains and bright yellow bands; no risk of disc loss; low traffic, little overlap with other activity areas; cement tees; basket placement is good; grounds well maintained; plenty of parking.
Cons: Tees are not numbered (you will need the map first time); chains are rusty; tee pad on #2 is poorly placed; tee pad on #5 is ridiculous (see below); it was marshy on the day I was there; mostly open; #9 didn't exist.
Other Thoughts: The map on this site is very good and you will need it for your first trip here. I took pictures from each tee and uploaded them to clarify the review. Park behind the fellowship center; the first tee is at the back left corner of the parking lot.

#1 throws to a basket located down the gap between two "walls" of trees. There is a second smaller gap to its right which is a short dead end - throw to the gap with the gravel walking path. You cannot see the basket from the tee.

#2 tee pad is directly behind the #1 basket - see photo - it's within 3 feet. Fairway is the same one as #1 with the basket tucked around to the right.

#3 tee is back at the parking lot (near left corner from a Berlin Road perspective). Throws across an open field to a basket well short of the woods.

#4 plays across a berm. The tee is to the left of the berm and the basket is on the downslope of the other side. Only 300 feet but fun.

#5's tee pad is located on the downslope behind another berm. It is literally at a 30 degree angle uphill. The hole is short (233 feet) but the tee pad made it more challenging for me than #4.

#6 plays across another open field with a telephone pole as the only obstacle.

#7 is the longest hole to a basket tucked in the front corner of the property. Very flat.

#8 plays slightly up to a basket in a strip between the woods and some rough. But it's short (272 feet).

#9 didn't exist. No basket anywhere near where the map says it should be. No sign of any tee pad (the other 8 had cement pads). I thought about changing this to say it is an 8-hole course but maybe it is temporarily pulled. By the Christmas Grinch who is fixing a chain on one side that won't chain.

Overall this is a simple park course - mostly short, mostly open but decent enough to play multiple times if you lived nearby. My enjoyment was enhanced when I threw a "field ace" on the longest hole - i.e. I deuced #7 (the 447 foot hole) where I'm sure my first throw was barely 275 feet. But my favorite hole was #4.
