Pros: Easy to follow course
Good mix of wooded and open
Course is great if you're looking to get in a quick 9 (back or front)
The back 9 just got an upgrade (old 16, 17, and 18 are different now. You don't have to play by the sewer).
Cons: Front and Back 9s are split, you have to drive to get between each course.
If it rains, the course will be soupy. There's a big puddle right next to hole 6 basket (if it rains).
Other Thoughts: They just changed several holes on the back 9.
The course is nice to play, but having to get back in the car and drive back up the block to the back 9 is a little annoying (I'm a stay at home dad, so I push a stroller when I usually play).
Course par is marked as a 60 at the course, but it's more like a 58.
The back 9 upgrade isn't finished yet. There are still signs that need to be re-made, but the upgrade has turned the course from a 2.5 to a good 3.0

Pros: This course is a tale of two extremes. The front 9 plays through a park with mostly flat, open shots. Large concrete tee pads offer excellent footing. Nice park setting with mown grass fairways. The color tee signs are very descriptive. The problem is that you have to get back in your car & drive to the back 9. There is no way across the creek to get to the back 9. It's not too bad. Just a little strange. The back 9 has more trees in play & there is some elevation in play here. Sandy dirt & grass mix as you play through & around a creek bed.The tee pads are 'natural' & range from grass to sandy dirt. There are short & long throws. Open to wooded & vise-versa. I love hole #9 where you shoot through the base of the electric tower. #16 was a great shot too! There is some elevation on the back 9. Some water hazards (creek & water puddles).
Cons: No benches. Some of the tee pads on back 9 were loose sandy dirt & hard to get good footing. The front 9 layout is somewhat boring. I liked the back 9 better.
Other Thoughts: We threw at a couple courses in the area & this was a pretty fun course to play. I'm glad I checked it out! Not too crowded. They def need a bridge from the front 9 to the back so you dont have to drive. But the area looks like it is prone to flooding so the bridge would have to be pretty substantial. This will cost $$.

Pros: This will be a very good course, with the growth and up keep continues. There are many holes that are challenging, with hard left an right turns and lots of overgrowth. The back 9 has some tough basket placement but with some well placed thumbers and overhands you can get there. There is a good mix of open, closed tunel, and open sky over and around tree holes.
Cons: Some of the growth needs to be trimed yet. There needs to be additional arrow signs to let you know where the next hole is and areas you want to throw to to be able to dog leg into the woods. It has the feel of 2 different courses and a bridge needs to be made so you don't have to drive around to the back 9.
Other Thoughts: This course uses much of the utilities right of way so I would be concerned on how offten it will get cut. There is supose to be a way you can play the course without driving. Play 1-5 after 5 cross the creek on the pipe and play 16-18 then 10-15; cross back over the pipe and play 6-9. I did not know this till I was on 10 and meet some regs. I was told that on Sundays ther is an mixed doubles. It can be VERY good with a little more work.
