Pros: Tee signs are nice quality and the park itself is nice and tucked away between houses. En route, I almost missed the park entrance because it was that tucked away. This is a good course for beginners and young kids. Cons: The course needs better maintenance as each basket has a large amount of rust. There are no teepads, just tee ditches. Unfortunately, there's no real way to tell what counts as part of the tee and what doesn't, as there's about 10-15 feet of dirt patch with the tee sign ...

I found this was a great beginner course. Not too many trees and just enough difficulty to work your way out of. Certainly a good confidence builder for new disc golfers.

Short course!, and I mean the shortest course known to man! Putt Putt of disc golf! Most holes 200 feet or less. One bomber from the top of the hill 325 feet(Par 4/as they say). Dirt wedges are the tee pads. Bring 2 putters and a mid, you should be covered. From main parking lot course is tucked away, hole 1 starts behind basketball court. Played with a couple locals, made the round much more enjoyable. Second time around had 6 birdies out of 9. Baskets are rust colored but still catch quite nicely. Only stop here if in the area, or if you want to check off the list like I did.

As a casual 9-hole course, O'Brien really delivers. It has cement pads, tee signs, baskets and the grass is well-maintained. The 3 longer holes are wide open and the 6 short ones all have some trees (or the swamp behind #3) to navigate. It's not the most exciting or challenging course but it does require you to play a decent variety of different shots. You won’t want to hang out there all day but for a quick disc fix, it satisfies.
