Over hill, over dale...
Pros: Great work out as this city park is very hilly; albeit fairly compact. It is a very clean course; yet with plenty of mature tree's to make it technically satisfying. There's really only a couple of small places where you could possibly lose a disc; so that's a plus for those who tend to stray from fairways.
Cons: Courses like this, while fun to play, do not offer much in the way of scenery as the entirety of the course is fit pretty much within a 'square'. One of the hole maps was so off, that someone had to take permanent marker to point out which way to tee off.
Other Thoughts: This course makes for a fine day of DGing when combined with the other two courses on the same highway (Freeman Lake with lots of water hazard shots; and grip 'n' rips) and Muldraugh (100% through thick woods where having a knack for getting out of rough is a must!).

Pros: Nice Lightly wooded course with many elevation changes.
Cons: The roads in the park often come into play as O.B. Although then on one hole you have to throw across a road to get to the basket. Also it was sometimes difficult to figure out which basket we were aiming for from the tee.
Other Thoughts: The two guys I was playing with disagree with my opinion that O.B.s being involved in most holes is a negative thing.

Radcliff course much elevation and OB
Pros: Radcliff is a course close to Ft. Knox. This course has lots of elevation changes, many mature trees, and many OB with which to contend. The course leads back to the parking lot after the 1st 9 and again after the 18th hole. All of the holes are guarded by mature trees with the last two holes going through a wooded area. There are anhyzer shots, hyzer shots, and straight shots.
Cons: There aren't any benches near any of the tee-pads. There may be some trash cans near some of the holes, but they are few and far between. Most of the holes are under 300 ft; you can leave your long range game at home and still come up with a good score. The tee signs can be misleading at times.
Other Thoughts: I think this course is great for beginners to test their accuracy; errant drives do not rule out a par.

Pros: This course is in a small park with big hills and lots of mature trees. It has concrete tees, signs on every hole and the baskets are in good condition. The course loops back to the parking lot after hole 9.
Most of the holes aren't very long but they make up for it in character. Every single one has good sized elevation changes on it. The park road is OB and while it's only a major feature on a few holes, it does come into play on about half of them. The road gets very little traffic and it's easy to see from the tee so it's a fairly minimal safety concern.
There's a decent shot variety here, the two holes that force turnover shots for RHBH players are tough shots with OB road on the left. There are some other holes with multiple routes to the basket and on a few of those a turnover shot is the higher percentage shot, but there are definitely options which is nice.
There are lots of trees on this course, but you're never actually in the woods at any point and there is no rough to deal with. So the only time you have to worry about losing a disc is in the fall when there are leaves all over the ground.
Cons: If you're not familiar with the layout, it can be a little tough to find hole 6 which is across the road in the corner of the park. There are a couple times where you might not be completely sure which pin you're throwing at or have a little difficulty locating the basket amongst the trees.
This course can be a real workout; on every hole you're walking up and down hills. I don't consider this a real con because it's what makes this course so unique, but it is worth mentioning for anyone not used to playing hilly courses.
There isn't a lot of space in this park so there are a few places where tees are a bit too close to baskets so watch out for errant drives.
Other Thoughts: While this course isn't a much of challenge for a more advanced golfers (SSA is about 46), newer players will enjoy the challenge this course and it's hills present. No matter who you are, it is fun course to play and this hills help to make it one of the more unique courses in the area. If you're in the area it's definitely worth stopping to play a round.
The baskets for holes 2 and 3 have both been moved to the left away from the fence. This really helps to keep the fence out of play, reduce the possibility of lost discs and keep the neighbors happy.

Decent mature wooded Course
Pros: This course has a lot of large mature trees on every hole but it is not in thick woods at any point. Just nice spread out large trees. There is elevation changes on almost every hole. There are decent sized concrete pads and signs at every hole.
Cons: Most holes are in the 220-280 range with only a couple shots that require anything over a midrange. I only threw driver 4 times on the whole course and teed off with a midrange on every other whole. Many of the wholes feel the same with either being partially wooded 250 up a hill or partially wooded down a hill. You can also see other baskets close by on every tee shot. You have to make extra sure you are throwing at the correct basket. The course is very packed into a small area. You also have to through across a road a couple times.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little course to play that doesn't require any long throwing and it's not real difficult. It makes good use of the samll area they had to work with. You can also play it very quickly. But if your in the area Freeman lake is a much better course.

Tons of walking up and down!
Pros: This is a very simple course that plays mainly on 2 sides of the park which creates a lot of walking up and down the hills back and forth. If you're looking for some exercise this is a good course. From what I remember the baskets were in good condition and the course itself is average at best.
Cons: Lot's of hills, not too challenging.
