Pros: Best of both worlds. Beautiful, well-maintained course. Finesse 18, with bayou/river on left and ball golf/power 9 on right. Nice variety of holes and technical challenges. You will need to reach deep into your bag of tricks before finesse 18 is said and done. A lot of tunnel shots through the trees, all tight narrow fairways. Not a lot of length, but tons of tight technical shots. Hole 8 is a good example of this. 100 ft tunnel shot walkway with either treee-lined side side sloping down into the water. At 100 ft, it makes an abrupt right angle turn left. From the kink point its a slowly right fading 150ish tunnel with water on the left and thick leafy wall from top to bottom on right. Very unique and challenging hole. Many other unique holes, each challenging in their own way. Water in play on most holes. So many creative hazards on finesse. Water hazards and trees surround pins like sand traps on a ball-golf course. Very fun and interesting. I got beat up a bit, score-wise, on this course, but it didn't really matter that I was bogeying 250ft holes, because the course is lots of fun, serene and very beautiful. Definite campground nature trail feel to this walk through the woods. Thank goodness we picked up a map at the pro shop, or we would've been lost at several points.

Power 9 extremely long and open (on ball golf course), looked like great chance to just let it fly, but wasn't open when we were there.
Cons: Many holes are very unforgiving. Hole 8 is under 300 ft. Direct quote from employee at pro shop. "I think only two people have ever birdied it". That record stood with room to spare when we played it, which reminds me- Watch out for water mocassins.

Not that it will, but this course has about 30 ways to possibly eat your discs, (mostly water), and the underbrush in the woods makes escape shots difficult (though that could be more user error for throwing it there). If you flub a finesse shot, you WILL pay.

Long walk from clubhouse to finesse hole 1. Hard to find next finesse hole through the woods without the free maps the clubhouse provides.
Other Thoughts: Very fun, but no cakewalk. Finesse 18 and Power 9 both very fittingly-named. Wanted to play it again as soon as I was done. Power-9 was unplayable when we were there due to high ball-golfer traffic (they paid way more to play on the same course, hah!), so only played finesse 18, and walked Power 9

Pros: Very fun course. Lots of room to stretch your arm out, but still enough tight fairways to make you scratch your head.
Fairly well stocked pro shop on site, a rare commodity!
Other Thoughts: There is a fair amount of variety here. You have the power 9 which is played along an executive 9 hole ball golf course. There are large tee pads with ample room, wide fairways with still enough trees and water hazards to keep you in check. A 3 on most of the power 9 holes is a great score, they can be long! The finesse 18 has it's own set of challenges as well. Tight meandering fairways with tricky greens. Water hazards and plenty of doglegs. We found the course to be fairly wet and soggy, but there had been an unusual amount of rainfall prior to our visit. Plenty of places to lost plastic, but there is a pro shop to restock!
If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a trip.
