Pros: Lots of nice updates going into this course. The woods are in the middle of a major cleanup, all the tees are smoothed out with paint on the 4x4 boards, and the pins are all surrounded by new mulch. Some "next hole" signs are in place. Best of all, there are finally some real bridges up over the creek!

The past several seasons have seen the fairways kept up much better than when it first opened, but even the rough has seen regular trimming lately, which is good for finding errant discs.
Cons: Even with the cleanup in the woods, there's still the problem of low ground, especially around hole 13 and the path to 17 (both near the creek)...maybe that's in the works though.

Tees are nicely packed, but concrete or at least packed gravel would really help, especially in the spring.

Not really the course's fault - I think there's enough barrels, but LOT's of garbage (wrappers, cups,bottles) especially by the tees.
Other Thoughts: More often that not, I'd skip 13-16...that's finally changing. Much thanks to the crew doing the upgrades!

Pros: Several long open holes.great for power drives .Some fairways are well defined by the edge of the woods.. great mix of holes. no major climbs and hills
Cons: yes the rough can get very high and the back woods can be a bit tight.
Other Thoughts: this park is a great adventure and a wonderful alternative to triangle park.

Pros: Nice mix of long, medium and short holes. A few challenging but fair wooded holes in the back 9. The course is mostly flat but there are some minor elevation changes on some of holes and one pin is on a good size mound to help keep things interesting.

A lot of the course is wide open but the surrounding wooded area and tree lines are used strategically on some of the open holes to punish shots that lack control.

There are long and short tees on nearly every hole making the course more appealing to players of varying skill levels. The tees are marked by painted wooden markers in the ground.

Navigating the course is very easy. I believe the only long walk is from 16 to 17.
Cons: More than half the course is wide open. Only the fairways are mowed so the grass and weeds continue to grow all year and can get waist high late in the year making it very difficult to find shots that miss the fairway.

The dirt tees are starting to erode slightly making the ground uneven. The distance on a few of the tee signs is way off.

Finding the long pads on some holes is a bit difficult.

There isn't a lot of shot variety here, most all the holes are straight or hyzer shots. A couple of the wooded holes force a turnover shot.

Like many other courses, this one plays in some low lying areas that can accumulate water if it's rained recently.
Other Thoughts: The fairways are sufficiently wide for a more seasoned player and I enjoyed the challenge the rough presented. However, I could not recommend this course to a newer player when the rough is tall, they'd spend more time looking for discs than they would throwing them.
