Pros: Long and lots of elevation here. You'll get some extreme chances at shooting uphill and downhill here. A third of the holes will test your distance and allow you to rip it. Very well kept course except... (see cons)
Cons: through the middle holes of this course there are a few holes which have no clear line at all. Too many thin trees and no clear-cut path to shoot. Ideally there's a clear path (even if its very small) here, there's just throw and hope. Most of these holes you have to walk to find before you throw. Also, these holes need directions to the next tee badly. These cons keep the Blue from being great.
Other Thoughts: I loved this course - probably a second playing would be more fun as I wouldn't have to wander around most holes looking for where to shoot. Still, it's well worth your time and will test every part of your game (including patience).

Pros: - Long AND tight mix, fair for all skill levels. Well balanced, grueling. Well maintained, dual cement tees and has signs.
Cons: I wonder if there's room for the cons to fit in this box...
- Really, really, really, really hard to navigate. I mean seriously, it's like it was designed to BE hard to navigate. (There were no maps in the box). If playing the long tees, you have to walk up to the short to find out what hole you are on (which is important due to the bad layout) and the length. The tee signs don't inform you where the basket is, with many long blind holes. One hole is 900' long and can't be seen until you walk up more than half the way, then it's an uphill walk back to the tee. The hole next to #2 is not #3, it's #14, #3 is actually far away, across the park road and hard to spot. #5 backtracks from #4. #6 is not in the direction that a sign points, and the hole is hard to even find when walking down the fairway. GOOD LUCK!
- Way too much poison ivy, so much I cannot play some of the holes. Hole #10 has too much around the green, you can't walk to the pin from any angle and not get it up to your knees. A few other holes had it carpeting the fairway. Therefore, holes #6-12 are not playable to those severely allergic.
- A few holes were just not well thought out, close to being good but needed the tee pad moved over.
- Many (about 1 in 3) tee pads were buried in thick sand, up to 8 inches deep.
Other Thoughts: When there's that much ivy, and it's that hard to navigate, it does not matter how good the holes are, it's a bad course because I, and some others, cannot enjoy it.
Skip holes #6-12, bring a guide.

Pros: This course is well taken care of. There are certainly long shots and some tough wooded shots. You get to use a range of skills so come prepared. Lots of fun!
Cons: No cons, a must play.
Other Thoughts: They are planning a third course in Lindsey Park!
