C+ = Too much of too little
Pros: What I personally like and how this course stacks up in my list of 18 hole courses:
1) Holes with good risk/reward. Fair, but harsh punishment for bad decisions or execution. == C-
(A few of the first and last holes have some early trouble that might possibly cause a bogey to happen. Other than that it is a very open course. I understand a storm took out a lot of trees - bummer!)
2) Holes that have rewarding birdie opportunities for me. I throw 300' accurately, 360' max. == B
(The length alone on 3/4 of the holes fit my D, so I hope for a high number of birdies here.)
3) More wooded than open - lots of variety of shots required caused by hole shape and topography == C
(A few holes force you to throw a specific line, but most are very open with various routes to the basket.)
4) Natural beauty (Appalachian beauty preferred) and seclusion. == C-
(Below average. Scruffy and run-down feeling. The park is in a lower class neighborhood and you see the park and houses on the entire course. No seclusion)
5) Bonus points for multi-throw holes with defined landing zones, good risk/reward and multiple options to play them. == N/A
Other Thoughts: It's all about feeding the addiction, so I ranked this course subjectively based on my own "personal addiction factor". The grades above tell how well the course will draw me back to itself again and again and again. Since I have played a decent number of courses (149 18-hole, 91 9-hole as of late 2009), my hope is that players/explorers who have similar addiction tastes will find my ratings list helpful as they choose courses to play and explore.
I fully expect others with different tastes/philosophies to disagree with me....that's the fun of things here. See my profile for my rating philosophy.
