Good and Improving
4 Helpful / 4 Not
Pros: - Reasonable level of difficulty. Newer players can get to par with a reasonable amount of practice and veterans can start hunting birdies all around the course.
- Good mix of open and tightly wooded holes.
- Improvements are always underway and the course is maintained by hard-working individuals.
- Vegetation is kept at a great level. Not hard at all to keep track of your discs throughout most of the court if they go astray or fade too hard.
Cons: - One or two of the holes labelled as par 4's really ought to be par 3's. This is great encouragement for beginners but it doesn't seem right.
- There are no very very long holes. I'm not very good at these anyway but including at least just one would be a good addition if it could have been fit into the layout.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy the course and the fact that it is not extremely difficult to par the course. The difficulty and variation of hole styles provides for some stiff competition with whoever you bring along or a good time if you stop by on your own for a round. Go give it a try!

Pros: Very fair course.You do not have to be able to throw 300-400 feet to shoot par.Very nicely maintained.
Cons: It is located in a public park and sometimes(not often) people walk on the course on a couple of the holes.
Other Thoughts: Played today and it was beautiful.

Pros: This course is extremely underrated. It is on par with Patriot's Park and Riverview. It also boasts the benefit of quick rounds. One can play 18 holes in under an hour no problem on most days. The course has many birdie opportunities.
Cons: The first few holes may have families playing in the park a little closer than most players would like. Some of the signs have not been updated since the 2009 course renovations.
Other Thoughts: Especially if you are a beginner this course is the best course in the area. Although more experienced players will still have fun with the course, beginners will be able to obtain success that is difficult to find on other area courses.

Great short course, semi technicall
Pros: tee boxes are kept up with, they just put new dirt down in front and behind them.
fun course for all skill levels due to shorter distances
Cons: baskets are old and do not have the yellow top, which can make them harder to see

I liked this course.
Pros: This is a course anyone could enjoy. It is not the toughest course in this area, but it does offer enough that any level player could enjoy it. Particularly a group of players of mixed player levels or noobs.
The number of improvements are dramatic and very well done. Most of the course has been lengthened and new fariways cleared out. The fairways are well defined and clear of brush and it has a very nice flow.
It starts out very flat but technical. Getting through the trees is tricky. Especially when 2 is in the long position. Elevation is not as wicked here as in many of the other courses in the area. They do use what is here very well.
I like the mixture of straight fairways and left and right doglegs. A left or right dominant person would not have an advantage here. A balanced game is a must. There are many blind drives. So expect the first couple of rounds to be higher scoring.
Because the course has had so much renovation recently the shule can be very rough. But patience and placement will make a big difference.
The teedpads are concrete and most are in good shape.
Many amenities exist here. There are plenty of trashcans and some benches to sit on. Playgrounds, tennis courts, clean public restrooms, a dog park, plenty of good parking, picnic areas, and several small gardens each with a differnet theme.
Cons: Even with GPS the park is not easy to find.
A couple of the new teepads were cracking and unlevel. I have done enough concrete work to know that the ground was not properly prepared. They will have to be redone.
Even with the map a couple of tees were a bit difficult to find. Six was the toughest.
The out of bounds on basket 4 is a childrens playground area. Please be careful. It is a right to left throw and if you do not curve your throw right it will head straight for it.
Three is thrown across the entrance road to the park so watch out for cars and bike riders.
Other Thoughts: This is the course I like the most in the area, of the 6 that I have played.
It has a high fun factor, great scenery, and is an above average park for rec and intermediate players.
If you want to spend a day with guys throwing plastic, take your family out to a nice park, or have a place to take a romantic walk in one of its nice flower gardens this is the palce.

Best of Augusta...
Pros: First off let me say that I rate all the courses I've played by the surrounding courses available. So that being said, IMHO I believe that this is the top of line course in the area not including the IDGC courses. The fun factor of this course is great, there is a nice mix of wooded and open holes, and the shot diversity is also nice. The mulch thrown down from the tree clearing on the wooded holes adds a nice dry fairway material for when it gets wet out. Trash receptacles are throughout the park there are 2 restroom locations on the course. Benches have been put up at most of the Tees. Tees and baskets are in very nice condition.
Cons: Some of the tee pads are near sandy ground and some of the sand gets on the pads from time to time, brooms near some of these holes would be a nice touch. On hole #2 play is to the right of some playground equipment and this poses some dangers during busy hours.
Other Thoughts: I am in the process of planning a tourney here sometime next year.

Pros: New layout that makes this a very fun course. Not too long but plenty of challenges. There is a 3' x 3' course map over at one of the kiosks.
Beautiful park in the center of Augusta. You'd almost think you were out in the country.
Other Thoughts: Even though it was raining the entire time we played there was no mud because of plenty of mulch.

Pros: Not to long, still great for beginners. Course has been redone. If you haven't been there in the last few months, you havent been there. New tee boxes, new pin placements, holes through the woods have mulch put down. Alot of work has been put into this and it is much appreciated.
Cons: none really, nice solid course since the remodel.
Other Thoughts: Like i said, if you havent played it recently, go play it. Its not the same course it used to be. Water hole has been removed.
