Pros: I really like the little features they added to the basket so they would not shred your disc like Innova baskets can.
Signs are easy to follow.
Good mix of shots and challenges. Not very exciting though for most part. There were a few placement shot holes.
Cons: Inconsistent teepads. i dont care what the teepad is made of, but really dont like random sized pads on every hole.
Hole 8's water OB is just stupid. Why would you intentionally put a stagnate bacteria, rock, and broken glass filled puddle under what is probably the most consistently hit tree on the fairway???? And its not marked on the tee sign and not easy to notice from the tee.
Poor use of the land. So many features left untouched. Greens dont have risk/reward for most part.
The "hanging" basket, isn't a hanging basket. It's fixed to a pole, takes the fun out of the concept.
Other Thoughts: This course is better than a 3 but not a 3.5. I have no desire to ever return either. A total waste of a 2 hour drive (one way).
For as much as this course is hyped up, I was really surprised at how thoroughly I did not enjoy it. I got bored of the course very quickly. It had a feeling of being hacked together and not thought out as a whole course (like 3 different course in one).
You could put a really amazing 18 hole course in here. The land has so many unique features to take advantage of, would be nice to see them used and the course more than a pitch'n'putt.

Pros: Good mix of short, technical holes and long, open holes. Some elevation change, especially near the tubing hill.
Cons: Tees could be better...bricks for some, rubber mats for others.
Other Thoughts: Not really a deuce or die course, but plenty of deuces available.
