Pros: The course plays around the rolling hills surrounding the farm, bringing some fun elevation into play on several holes. You start out throwing steeply uphill, then get a couple downhill shots to recover. There are a few holes that go into the woods to make you tighten up your lines, and that balances out the many more open holes where your main obstacles are elevation and wind. The pond hole is a nice risky shot, but one that most players can clear and that has a couple bail out routes. The last couple holes do a great job using the woods to make you shape some lines and try to avoid rolling down the big hills, nice way to finish the round.

There is a great deal of work that has gone into this course. The tees are nice large concrete pads with plenty of grip. There are signs showing distance and hole layout, along with direction to the next tee. The baskets were in great shape and caught well. The mowing here is a huge job, but it was all in good shape, I can't imagine how many hours every week are spent mowing the two courses here.
Cons: The scenery is nice here, but this course gets a little repetitive. Too many of the shots are wide open and straight ahead, elevation is fun but not as the only feature on most holes. Even the tighter holes are mostly straight holes with only a few that really challenge you to shape a different line.

The rough here is either tall grass, or thorny brush. The brush at least makes you pay with strokes for an errant shot along with the blood you'll lose, but the tall grass is pretty prevalent here and is really not my favorite kind of rough. It won't make you lose any strokes, it'll just eat discs and make you waste time looking for them. If this course had made better use of the woods like the other course on site here, the open long grass holes would have been an interesting change up, but there are just too many of them on this course.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course, but definitely the little brother here. It's a fine warm up for the bigger course, and clearly appeals to more of the casual players around, but really suffers in comparison. It has some really nice holes, especially the last few, but it also gets a bit repetitive in the middle. I would recommend playing a round if you're here, but don't choose this one over the Big Brother course if you can only play one. It is a very nice atmosphere here with welcoming hosts, a quaint bed and breakfast, and two courses that feel very private and secluded.
