Pros: The course was expanded from a short 9 holer to the current 18. This upgrade made the course much, much better than the original. There's decent hole length variety (1of 195/ 12 of 200-299/ 2 of 300-399/ 3 of 400-485), but 2/3 are under 300. This is mostly because 1-7, from the original layout, are pretty short. The terrain has a good mix of wooded, open, and mixed terrain holes. Mild elevation changes with a drop of 18 ft on hole 4 being the greatest. The creek down the middle of the fairway on hole 4 is very scenic and adds great risk vs. reward. The pond in play on hole 3 is nice too. There's a map available in the park office, but I didn't get one.
Cons: More work needs to be done on the tees and signs for 8-18, but it looks like that's in progress and will happen as the new layout gets broken in more. Tee 9 is a long walk and hard to find, so make sure to get the map. Tee 17 could also be hard to find. The majority of the holes are straight, with only 1 dogleg right (13 St/ 4 Lt/ 1 R). There are potential safety issues on hole 8 with errant drives that can hyzer onto the main road leading into the park (mine did!), and on 18 a drive could be shanked to the right onto the park road loop.
Other Thoughts: Course Level = White
There seems to be a short and long basket position on hole 7, but I'm not positive.
My favorite hole = 4. Although the first part is too open for my taste the drive has plenty of risk vs. reward since the fairway plays down a creek. This last half is really pretty. The basket by the creek is the prettiest green on the course. Hole 13 is a really fun open ace run that I threw lots of shots on. Holes 14 is a very challenging tightly wooded 400 ft par 4.

Deer Lick Park
Pros: Nice mix of holes, wooded and somewhat open with elevation changes. In a multi-use park with bathrooms and some other facilities. Locals were helpful.
Cons: The course was hard to find , both the 1st hole and the rest of the course. Some holes seemed not to have a way to get your 1st shot toward the hole but all holes were par 3 as per the locals. Thoes holes seemed like they should have been par 4's.
Other Thoughts: Good overall course, but nothing spectacular. Good for families as there are many other things to do there besides DG. There was supposedly a pro shop there but it was not open when I was there.
