Woodson Park in Oklahoma City would qualify, but I wouldn't go there anyway because the course sucks.
What makes them dangerous courses, any anecdotes?

I was looking through the course photos for lake Montebello thinking "this doesn't look like it is in a bad neighborhood" then I saw the PJs in the background of hole #5's approach photo:

the area around sedgely is WAY sketchier than the area around gillies. druid too for that matter. i've never felt threatened on either course.

New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM. Big open desert, washes, criitters, not to mention hard as hell to find tee pads and long holes. Leaving the car is a little sketchy too.

Much like the course that you're talking about in Richmond, the fact that they're all in the 'hood. I know that in at least three of those parks, bodies have been dumped.

There was for some time (and may still be) a memorial cross near Hole 1 at Cliff Drive for a murdered prostitute. Yeah, that's the way you want to start off your round.

The barbwire is not the part of Montebello to be worried about. Montebello and Druid are in basically the same type of area.

I had a guy come at me at Montebello yelling that I dented his car when I threw a roller. I think Martin Degwartia may have been with me, it may have been a different day.

I think it is funny that Sedgley got brought up lol I play there all the time, love that place. It is definitely surrounded by some of the worst hoods in Philly, but you are more then safe on the course. The locals keep the riff-raff out.

I played at a private course on Sunday and we found some drug paraphernalia. It's definitely the safest place around. I won't even post what I found at the Blockhouse in a round. I'd hate for someone to start a thread calling that place a meth lab.
