Quick play, never crowded and can be easy to overthrow some of the holes if you aren't careful. My wife just started playing and likes this course because it is peaceful and easy for her to practice without feeling rushed.

What I really want to do is give this course a 2.5, but that isn't an option, so I'll use my math skills and round up to 3 lol. This course is incredibly straight forward from the start, and just another beginner-friendly course in the area. If you're looking for some ace runs or if you like driving putters and mids then you'll have a niche to play here.

I give this course a 2.5
This is a nice little park, and the course is ok.
Nothing epic here, but a good beginner course for sure, and a good fast nine/ speed round/lunch break course for locals. Layout is basically just switchback style the whole length of the course area, but it's still a nice collection of shots with some elevation changes, and it plays FAST.
If it was crowded here I think it might be kind of a mess, but when i played we were the only people in the whole park, so it was not an issue.

Final note: this is a good course for ACE SHOTS.

[ My link ratings: ]
1 LINK: POOR. Course is poor, don't bother.
2 LINKS: OK. Course is alright, fun enough to play but not a first choice.
3 LINKS: GOOD. Good course, always fun to play.
4 LINKS: GREAT. These are the courses you want to live near- great quality park, layout, tees, baskets, etc.
5 LINKS: EPIC. This rating is reserved for only the best courses in the world. A MUST PLAY course.

A fairly easy course. I just started playing disc golf last summer and I'm about a par player on more difficult courses, but this one I've gotten a -7 on a couple of occasions and regularly score -4. The par on a lot of the holes is probably set too high, and more veteran players could probably play most of those as par 3's.

Pros:
Never crowded.
Not many places to lose a disc...rough isn't that thick.

Cons:
No tee boxes and uneven terrain to throw off of.
Hole 9 is on the opposite side of the course where Hole 1 is. So if you want to play another round you have to walk all the way back.
