Made 2 additional holes, next to basket #9 there is a metal plate on the ground, use that as the tee box and shoot at #8 basket. From there, also next to basket is a man hole cover, use as tee box and shoot at #7...is a tight squeeze through some skinny trees but possible. These extra holes bring you back towards hole #1's tee box and the parking lot where I park my car. Took a few pics of some of the holes, some are from the baskets view to the tee box, some are just the location of the baskets in general.

https://flic.kr/p/ypjDES (location of basket #2, in woods to the left of fairway)
https://flic.kr/p/yqYkjv (view from tee area to basket #7)
https://flic.kr/p/xtnw6T (view from basket #5 to tee area, nice right turning tunnel shot, or straight at it if you can thread the needle)
https://flic.kr/p/ypkkS5 (view from basket #3 to tee area, gravel spot between the 3 trees straight back to the right of basket..low hanging branches to contend with)

Is this course open in the off season (now) and can you drive in to the parking lot near tee #1? Or is the gate closed until next season? Thanks, M

Checked out the course yesterday and talked with the Park's guy before playing. He said that the next 9 baskets have been ordered and they will be longer/tighter holes through the woods (par 4s, par 5s).

The first 9 is a fun layout but it lacks proper flow and has some safety risks. Also, the tee pads point in the wrong direction on some of the holes. With such beautiful land there, I hope they get a legit course designer to help finalize things.

i wish the high-profile parks (i.e. parks that will get moderate/high traffic with or without disc golf) were getting proper courses installed

Central Park nailed it in this department

If anyone is wondering why many trees have been removed from #15's fairway and target area; they will be building a new restroom in that area starting this season sometime.
The old restroom (across the drive) will be removed on completion.

I personally like the new more open fairway. It splits into two paths to the target.
A right & left.

Still needs a significant redesign in the front nine.
