Pros: Pros:
This course is a good mix of woods, open, and technical. I like that you have to be able to shoot straight, heizer, anheizer, roller, tomahawk, etc etc etc. You have to be VERY creative becase there is no telling where you may wind up (especially on holes 3-6 and 16-17). Signage is very good and the course has a natural flow, with some exceptions....Distance wise, you have a good mix of short technical and long non-technical. The overlength of the course is a little short, but the techical aspects make up for this.
Cons: Single tee pads and MANY of them are beginning to show wear and a few can be a safety issue in the best of weather. Finding the actual course CAN be tough if you are not from here. A couple of arrowed signs would do the trick. The wooded holes need to be de-tangled...like Hole 6, there is no degree of technical that can even get you close to the hole...these type of blind shots do not go with the course's personality. Hole 11-13 is EASILY missed for the first time player (or even second time)...Post a sign or mark the trail entrance (like the 16 sign,,,that is perfect). Final Over the past while, I believe the E&H folks have let this course go. MANY large trees down from recent storms, Hole 3 walk down path needs IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. Holes 4-5 are so overgrown or full of debris that I have skipped these holes for the past 4 rounds. Holes 16 and 17 are in BAD SHAPE with debris and trees blocking the trail. The grass fairways and by-ways need attention, It just seems like the upkeep has seriously slipped.
Other Thoughts: It seems like I am banging on E&H, but guys, you have a GREAT course here....take care of it. Another SUGGESTION....please install a true "practice/warn-up" basket. The 18 basket is okay, but you can get in the way of both players on the 18th hole AND the ball golfers who overshoot their tee shots.
