Way to go, Fairhope.
Pros: Very nice, new tees, with new benches at EVERY tee. Beautifully done sheet metal tee signs. Extremely long 20 hole course. Good use of the property as far as hole variety goes.
Cons: The 8 holes in the woods are super-tight, unforgiving, and in a couple of places straight up unfair. Most holes are either straight or dogleg lefts, I can't remember a dogleg right on the course.
Other Thoughts: I first played this course 5 years ago, and it has improved dramatically since then. The new signage worked wonders. I can tell the local DG community really rallied, and some passionate people put a lot of time and effort into bringing this course up to date. Congratulations to those of you who obviously love this course.

A course with history

Pros: A few nice little warmup holes start you off in the open, followed by a trek into the woods. Last few holes bring you back into the open. Not an excessive amount of distance required, but accuracy is a must. Great range of shots and holes. As much elevation as you're going to find this close to the coast. And most importantly a great local crew who keeps improving the course.
Cons: Since this course has been improved over the years, there has been a lot more play. This has started wearing down some of the vegitation off the fairways. I feel the course is starting to become too open. Bad shots aren't punished like they used to be. (Well, some still are.) Most people probably won't find this to be a concern or con...
Other Thoughts: Teeboxes are in on all holes. Baskets are being upgraded. Holes are being move for extra length and difficulty. If you haven't played this course in a while, get yourself back over to the Eastern Shore.
