Not all that bad really
An easily playable course once you know the layout. Has three uphill holes that play longer than they look. Two downhill holes make nice use of the park elevation. Most of the double chain Discatcher baskets are still in good shape. Most of the holes are open but a couple have trees with which to contend. There are some unmarked mandos in play to protect cars: #7 must go to the right of the tree by the basket to avoid the parking lot and #9 must go to the left of the first tree to avoid the street. While definitely not a "destination course" this is the only game in town and is by no means a bad course once you know the layout. Was originally marked with dual tees where the alternates are shorter/easier.
The biggest issue at Hohlt is the poor marking of tees for first timers. An attempt was made to secure ~18" long small log tee markers to the dirt/ground with ~10" lag bolts, but the logs are easily pulled up by vandals or shattered by park lawn mowers. As such some tee pads are completely unmarked. Luckily I had a local show me where all the main tees were. I've linked a very rough Google map here on DGCR to point new players in the right direction and will upload a better map when I have more time.
The tray on basket #2 is broken and laying on the ground. A tree fell on basket #9 and bent the top chain assembly. There's a chance of losing a disc over the fence of the horse pasture if it drifts too far right on hole #4. Also hole #2 has a creek on the right that you may or may not get wet while trying to retrieve your errant disc.
This course doesn't really need alternate tees as the mains aren't very hard; the alts only serve to shorten the distance.
The local that I talked to said that the park is planning to put a building or pavilion at the end of the parking lot that will interfere with several of the existing holes. The hope is that some of the course can be relocated to the part of the park that currently has a nature trail.
