Beginner friendly and active
3 Helpful / 11 Not
Pros: -Fast Eddie and the group that have volunteered to improve the course have done an amazing job over the past few weeks. Many of the fairways have been cleared of debris and the tee pads have seen improvements as well. Unlike some courses in the area, Pendleton King is very clean and well maintained. This coming week, the benches should be finished across the course.
-This course is suitable for beginners or players who want to play a quick round. However, the simplicity of the design has a lack of variety and obstacles on the fairway.
-The baskets are in good condition and markers are being added to guide players from hole to hole.
-The tee pads have had some work and the new concrete has made them look good and function really well.
-Players on the course are friendly as well as the staff that maintains the park.
-There is plenty of parking available.
Cons: -Some holes are too short or too long for their par. I would love to see hole 7 get moved to the bottom of the hill to the right and a little more distance added to it to justify the par 4. Hole 4 should be further into the trees with the new "official" tee pad placement.
-There isn't a mix between technical and open shots. Most of the holes are straight shots with a little bit of curve to them.
-Holes 1 and 2 might make some players uncomfortable for being so close to recreational areas for children and picnic tables. However, I haven't seen anyone have problems with these two holes yet.
Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of improvements since the first time I played the course and I can't wait for the second phase to go underway. I hope some difficulty is added so I feel like I have to work for my score. Overall, this is a course that is hard for me to stay away from because of the work going into it and how friendly the staff/players are.
**I'm not sure why this has been so unhelpful, but if you find it so, write a review of your own and explain things about the course I might have missed.**

Pros: Dedicated maintenance in beautiful setting - gardens , arboretum and dog park . Half of holes through woods , mostly open shots though . Usually plays to 54 with 3 or 4 alt pins can go to 57 , no stress fun to play course great for beginners .
Cons: Gated park opens at 8 AM closes around dark . Tons of pedestrian traffic - but aware of the course and etiquette towards golfers .
Other Thoughts: Another must play in Augusta - ace runs and birdies are plentiful .

low rating is old and pre-update
Pros: really fun course. reminded me of redan in dekalb county. the low disc score doesn't reflect the redo they did this past year.
Cons: it was a little hard to find the next tee on a couple of holes.
Other Thoughts: check it out. don't let the 2 disc review deter. if you'll notice all reviews since the redesign have been great.

Redesign must've worked
Pros: Great course, after reading reviews from pre-redesign, I can tell that they did a great job with this course. Great scenic playing, does not interfere much with park goers. Nice easy pace. The next tee signs are plentiful and perfectly placed.
Cons: Scorecard and course map on both this site and ADGA are now obsolete and need updating. Also, on some holes it was hard to determine which par we were playing. (some holes were Par 3/4, with perhaps a 30 foot difference)
Other Thoughts: Great course in Augusta, did not fit the stereotypes heard about the area at all.
