Pros: Concrete Tee Pads
Nice use of wooded and more open areas
Nice technical/short game practice
Benches and trash cans
Cons: A few snoozers
Only one or two holes 300'+
Pothole ridden driveway and parking lot
Can get very swampy
Other Thoughts: I made my first trip to this course yesterday and enjoyed myself over two rounds, shooting 51 and 49. It seems that many of the holes are in a longer position through the early woods holes although #3 is still a gimme. The course was well maintained, and sparsely populated so it played very quickly. I will make the drive up from Columbus again soon.

Great Short Course
Pros: -Great Baskets
-Great course layout
- Easy to follow
- Wide range of shots
- Never Crowded
- Good Variation of wooded and open shots
Cons: - Natural tee pads can get really slick
- perhaps a little too short
Other Thoughts: Yes, this is course is short, but it offers a wide array of different shots. Plus the shortness of the course made it excellent to play in the snow because it wasn't a strain to reach most of the holes. This course is great for beginners and will teach them a variety of shots that will be required on more challenging courses. For intermediate players this course offers the opportunity to shoot well under par and have a few ace looks. For the advanced player, it's pretty fun to play a few times.
One point i'd like to make in this courses defense is that although concrete tee pads would be nice, they would make the course even easier. The natural tee pads don't allow you to throw (especially in the late fall - early spring) as far. Also, many of the holes play longer than listed either by doglegs or playing up hill. Every hole has a well defined fairway, and many require plenty of accuracy to give yourself a birdie putt. This course was tons of fun and I would recommend it to anybody in the Sunbury area.

Pros: + Wooded holes force line shaping
+ Scenic and decently secluded, makes for a nice hike
+ Not a popular/crowded course
+ A logical flow to the course
+ Short walks between holes
+ A few ace-able holes
+ New permanent short tees and many long tees added
Cons: - Signage is now out of date on many holes
- Even with many layout improvements its still just an intermediate level course from the permanent tees.
Other Thoughts: This course is newly improved with nicely poured cement tee boxes now, as well as a few benches added. Other improvements include new pin locations on holes 2, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 14, as well as a new tee location on hole 7 making for a much more obvious fairway.
These changes made this a markedly better course. A lot of the gimmie 2s are gone now in favor of pretty simple 3s but tough birdies. It went from being a rec course to an intermediate level one in my opinion. A good option to play when you don't want to deal with crowded courses and aren't looking to stretch your arm, but rather work on your technical game.
