If you consider the fact that this course was designed to be played with big plastic, it's a great course. Play it with a mid or a putter and you'll have a great time.

Post course. Distances on some of the posts seem wrong.

Garfield is a super quick play, I like it due to the fact that I can ride my bike to the park. It is a stick course, this may turn some players away. I like taking a walk through the park while everything is going on around. I have never been slowed down by others playing. If you see others playing they tend to be solo or doubles.

I love this old pole course , this is the course I cut my teeth on when I started playing disc golf way back in 1978 before golf discs and baskets even existed. I played with world class 165 and 141 gram ( big platter discs ) those big platters were also great to use as plates at pig roasts and back yard parties , yes that was a different time that's for sure. So the next time you play one of these old courses appriesiate them because these courses are the birthplace of what we have today.

Back in the day (summer of 1977 ) Me, and this park attendent name Tee, he came up with this ideal of stapling paper plates on the trunks of the trees in and around the park we used those 141's and 165's that was all we had. Thats all we had to throw .This is before they had the current course that you see today . Back in the day this was the place to play and hang out at the picnic tables...for those of you ( O.G's) original golfers out there then you know what iam talkin about.Garfield is th ...

Poles, commmmonnnnnn. Are we in the stone age? And Garfields doesn't exactly attract the best crowd to disc around. Kind of a joke of a course, I only play it because I live a block away.

Only thing keeping this from the "perfect" rating is the tee pads...the new layout is great and will only get better with use and tee pads. Great mix of difficulty, technical shots and a "let it fly" 15...can't wait to make this course a regular part of my rotation and routine!

This review comes after the redesign and the addition of baskets to this course.
It is a technical course with trees a major factor on most holes. Few long holes, but most fall in the 200-300 range. Lots of low hanging branches, so keeping shots low is a must. I found it challenging. A great beginner course! I will be back frequently.

Very nice use of the land available. With the hopeful addition of concrete pads it will be a great play!

The new design is very nice and utilizes all of the available park while still leaving room for other activities to take place. Fun layout with different shots.

Very short but also very fun to play, no tee pads, a few mandos. Some distance shots and some finesse shots.
