Pros: Set in a multiuse rural county park, this course provides a solid challenge for players of varying experience; excellent for beginners and intermediates while advanced players will enjoy plentiful birdie ops. Mostly wooded, the course is easily followed, having accurate signage, large tees and clearly defined fairways. There's a good bit of variety as the holes range from technical straight to left/ right doglegs to moderately open to wide open downhill. The course is mostly flat but a few holes offer elevation, whether in pin placement or off the tee, lending to risk/reward. The winding creek on the front nine and the elevated tees on the back help with the aesthetics.
Cons: Maintenance or the lack thereof, is the most glaring con. A lack of amenities further detracts from it (no benches, trash cans, nearby water source). While not tall the grassy fairways appear unkempt, mowed infrequently. Several tee pads are not level and will likely get worse (cracked or broken) due to erosion if not addressed. There's an abundance of clearing still needed on the front nine and several sign posts on the back laying on the ground. One could perhaps look passed this if it weren't for the run-down impression you get when pulling into the lot.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid course; with some attention and care it could be above average. I enjoyed the challenge it provided but was left with a feeling of having just played a course that few locals play, or even care about. I doubt I'd make the trip to play this course specifically but if in the area again, I'd not hesitate.
