Pros: The course is now under new management so the course is now getting a few positive changes.

Signs, the signs for each hole are now stumps and they are really neat. I like this new change because they are informative with the distance and also they look nice. There are also new paths so people don't get lost for a couple of the holes.

There are a couple new benches out on the course and they are really cool looking such as hole 3 and hole 7. They make it really nice because people in past destroy the benches for no reason and some of the holes during the fall season had destroyed bench pieces on the ground.

The park now has a garbage can at every hole and it also keeps the park clean which is really nice.

A lot of technical holes make it great. There are a lot of trees so there are some challenging holes which is fun to play.

There are also a couple holes that are really nice looking like scenic.
Cons: Everything is pretty flat. There are a couple holes with slight elevation but other than that.

A majority of the holes are under 300' so you don't have many shots that are distance.

This place can get packed on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday so be prepared for a little wait.

There have been problems in the past of vandalism but it has changed a little. There were a couple benches vandalized since the opening but nothing really major happened yet. There are also a lot of tress that got vandalized too which makes things look pretty bad.

After hole #11 I felt it was getting a little repetitive.
Other Thoughts: This was the first course I ever played on and it was really fun.. It's a great course to start out on until you feel confident enough to play Hickory. But if anyone is out there, be prepared for hitting a tree because if you didn't hit one, there is a problem.

 Great Course for Beginners

Pros: Log Lake is a pretty course in the woods with only a couple of holes with wide open fairways. Short holes and few real consequences from bad shots make this course a beginner's dream (and a great place to train for more closed-in courses). A nice variety of necessary shots and interesting basket placement keeps things fun. Swampy mud/water in play on 2 holes (#6 and #9).

The putting practice basket located in a wooded copse in the parking lot is a definite bonus for warm-ups.
Cons: This is a really busy course and back-ups are common. Vandalism has robbed almost every tee of any type of hole identification. This, combined with at least 2 areas where the layout doubles back on itself and a couple of road crossings, can make navigation interesting.

*** UPDATE 4/8/10 ***
A crew has been through with the leaf blowers making nagivagation a breeze! All of the tee pads now have nice engraved 4x4 tee markers with hole number, distance and direction clearly shown. Thumbs up to the maintenance crew here!!!
Other Thoughts: In areas where navigation gets confusing, next tee numbers and arrows have been drawn on surrounding trees with Sharpies, so keep your eyes open to avoid skipping entire sections of the course. A course map and scorecards are now available in the "Links" tab as well - I highly suggest printing and taking the map for your first couple of rounds (I still get turned around at the 8/10/15 junction!).

The baseball field that the course circles around is a great place to practice distance throws, rollers, and other "trick" shots.

This is one of the best courses to play in the winter, as well. Several people keep the tee pads cleared and there's a guy who packs the fairways down with a snowmobile. Ribbons are needed to keep from losing discs during winter play, and snowshoes are handy for errant shots that end up in "the deep".

Pros: Pretty course through the woods. Some elavation changes, with shots that have you throwing blind towards the basket. Pine trees tower over has discs fly below.
Cons: Land shared with campground, busy in the summer with people walking on the course. Not many long holes. Trash is a problem and so are large groups drinking while they play.
Other Thoughts: Tight holes through the trees will have you throwing with accurate precision. Ace opportunities abound. Most holes are 300 ft. and under
