Not Worth the Cost
Pros: The elevation and the views are spectacular. There are some very nice holes in the woods (3-7) after the first few flat holes, and the 16th hole is a really cool hole with slope and elevation to a great protected green.
Cons: It was free when I first played it so many years ago and is no longer free and not worth paying for.
Power lines and infrastructure run throughout the course and the course is not very well kept at all.
The course is largely open and boring, taking little advantage of the woods nearby or the slope and elevation on most occasions.
Holes #10-12 are flat, straight and exactly the same distance (245). The long holes are simply outrageously so and don't offer much of a chance to reach, even when they are downhill (more often you are going from crest to crest or along side slopes, which would make them marginally interesting if they were of a reachable length).
There are several holes (4, 6, 13, and 14) that require long shots and 90 degree turns after completing a lay up drive. I've seen holes like this before and they are ludicrous. I sort of liked holes 4 and 6 because they are wooded and a challenge to get par, but 13 and 14 are basically the same hole with a slight variation in distance (and the hole sucks).
The #7 tee sign is to the front left of the tee pad, and I nearly hit it with my lefty backhand follow through, and it is a huge liability hazard and very idiotic placement. I could have easily broken my hand if I had been throwing harder or taking a bigger run up.

Pros: Setting - Close to the city, playground and restrooms on site.
Terrain - 9 and 18 are awesome fun to throw.
You will get in shape if you play here a lot.
Holes - Distance is varied
Tees - Nice long concrete tees
Cons: Setting - Not very attractive, bare in a lot of areas, power lines over head, trash all over.
Terrain - It is in a valley, and a pain in the butt to walk around.
Trees - 2-7 have some woods, but mostly just cut fairways out of young growth forest. No trees on the back 9 except 16 and 17.
Holes - A few holes have a 90 degree turn in them, never seen that before and not fun.
1-8 are just a trek to get to the downhill bomber that is 9 (with the exception of 7) and 10-15 a trek to get to the last holes.
Tees - If there is a sign, it is illegible. Had no idea of distances. Course is hard to navigate. Tees are not pointed at baskets.
Other Thoughts: If you are visiting the area, play Rum Village instead

George Wilson Park
Pros: Lots of hills. Different styles (front nine in and along the woods, back nine in the open with lots of hills). Cheap only $2.
Cons: Lots of empty bottles and other trash usually on the course. The #3 hole has been missing for a while. This whole was missing a year or two ago also. Damaged baskets at the bottom of holes.
Other Thoughts: When the course is clean (not often) and all the holes are there I love playing this course.
