Pros: Easy to follow course with good tee pads and signage. Provides a nice challenge compared to the openness of the main course at lazarre. Stays nice and shady, and it requires every type of shot you can think of; blind shots. Mixes open and wooded well and uses elevation well. Plenty of signature holes that you'll remember. Bathroom on site and the park is clean.
Cons: Most baskets were rusted, and a few signs were missing/knocked over. A few tee pads were pretty slick, (not penalizing for natural tees on levy). A few hiccups navigating, but nothing major.
Other Thoughts: The park looks like it is mostly deserted and only sees DGers. We ran out of daylight, so I wasn't able to play the other course on site fully. We got onto this one because we couldn't find the fifth tee on main course. Overall, glad we played this one instead. It was a nice surprise that provided some challenge. It sort of reminded me of The Blair Witch Project course at Camenisch Park in Federal Heights, Colorado. A lot of the heavily wooded shots really make you thread the needle.

Decent place to play
Pros: The course plays through a sprawling park that's mostly flat, but uses a levee to add a little bit of elevation on a few holes, and a couple places where putts have the potential to roll away. This course has a better mix of wooded and open holes than the other course on site, with several holes playing through the woods or bringing them into play, adding a lot more variety and more lines to hit rather than just working on shot placement.
There's a decent mix of hole lengths out here, with some longer holes that let you open up a little bit. A few holes have some nice water hazards, always a plus to me when it adds in a good risk/reward opportunity. There are concrete pads, basic tee signs, and decent baskets on all holes.
Cons: There are some navigation issues, it's a little difficult to find the next tee at several places on the course, and there are some holes where the obvious basket isn't the one you are throwing to. A little better signage would help here. The road comes into play at times, which could be a safety issue. Many baskets showed some wear and rust, though they still caught fine.
Overall, the course makes pretty good use of the park, but with how flat and open most of the land is, it's hard not to have some repetitive feeling holes. The tees were pretty slick even when dry, it seemed like they would be pretty bad when wet (and it seems like this course is wet fairly often).
Other Thoughts: It's always great to have multiple courses in a single park. Of the two, this one is a little better, both in terms of challenge and variety. It's a little tough for most beginners, the original course might be a little more beginner friendly. This course isn't challenging enough to test the top players, but it's got some fun holes and some shots that make you work to hit your line.
