Pros: a woods course which I like, Interesting Topography that is fairly well used, I have never seen many people here playing so you kind of have it to yourself. Fun course to play I thought. Tight fairways and challenging at times.
Cons: A few of the tees were a bit hard to find. On one I had to walk about and hunt for the first time I played( it should be better marked to indicate the next tee on a few holes), Most were easy to find though. I wish a few holes that are kind of unimaginative could have made use of some of the cool terrain areas that were not utilized. I realize that the park probably dictated what could and could not be used but, it had a lot of potential that wasn't brought into play.
Other Thoughts: The confusing holes should have pointers on the pin to point to the next tee. Wish some more of the interesting terrain could be used.Good job on the design of this course. Thank you to the workers who did the work to bring it to us.

Pros: This is a very beautiful course with many tight fairways as well as great wide open holes.
-this course can test your short game for the most part with the exception # 9 and 10
-The course is very well maintained
-Has a Great facility of sports fields and hiking trails.
Cons: -The 16th hole was borring it was just a straight forward hole. Literally.
-There werent many trash cans and benches for in game rests.
-Some of the holes where hard to find.
-these holes had long walks to the tee that crisscrossed other trails to make it difficult
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to come and check out with a great layout that can test your technical short game.

 Fun wooded course

Pros: The course plays through a heavily wooded park with some fun ravines running through. Many holes play near these elevation changes, making for some potential trouble for errant tee shots, and a couple holes that have some fun up and downhill elevation. Most of the holes play pretty tight and force accurate shots, though there are a couple more open holes for a little break. The course calls for a good variety of left and right turning holes, with lots of different hole shapes to keep things interesting.

There are concrete tees on all the holes, and basic tee signs with the hole distance. The baskets are in pretty good shape and catch ok. There isn't much trash or vandalism, and for the most part the fairways are kept pretty clear (a tough task in this thick of woods).
Cons: The course plays pretty short overall, with most of the holes in the same distance range. A few longer holes mix it up, but not enough to keep it from feeling a bit repetitive at times. There are some navigation issues, with no next tee signage and some long walks with lots of unmarked paths through the woods. hole maps at the tees would be really helpful, with lots of blind holes that require some extra walking to know where to throw.
Other Thoughts: This is not a great beginner course, it's really tight, and has enough brush to be really punishing on errant drives. More experienced players will find some great challenges here, and will need to be accurate to score well. There are lots of birdie opportunities to be had with accurate throws, but there are also plenty of chances to end up with a bogey if you get off the fairway. This is definitely a fun course, and worth a stop if you're in the area.

Pros: This course is a challenging par 54 course that plays pretty much entirely in the woods. You can go out and shoot well under par one round and over par the next if you are not throwing accurately in the woods.

There are some very interesting elevation changes and ravines in the woods. This adds to the challenge of the course. Any pinball shots have the chance of landing in some tough areas to play from. There is some heavy rough in places which penalize bad shots.

Concrete tee pads.

Hole #4 is a really fun hole. The basket sits 20 feet below you. If you hit the line you are going right at the basket. The basket sits on the side of the hill.

The only time it is not quiet at this course is when there are softball games going on. This is a great hike thru the woods. I have seen many deer in the woods while playing. The course has a great feel to it.

You will learn how to throw a variety of putter and mid range shots on this course. It forces you to hit lines.It will expose any weakness in your accuracy game.
Cons: Tee signs are basic but are not descriptive.

#10 Tee pad is short for the type of shot needed. It's raised off the ground so it's very difficult to approach from the rear.

Navigation can be difficult in a few places.

This course is pretty short. There are only 3 holes over 300ft. 2 of them are back to back. Hole #10 is a tweener hole that plays uphill 450ft.

You really only have to pull out the driver on a few holes.

If there was a long set of tees i'd rate this course higher.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely not a beginner course. It will drive new players crazy hitting trees.
