Good Technical Course
Pros: Vastwood gives a fair challenge to players of all skill levels. Mostly a semi-wooded course, most of the holes are reachable by a player that can drive 320 feet so it doesn't favor someone with a huge arm. Constant elevation changes make so some interesting putting and upshot situations. Course plays through mostly old large trees with defined lines to the baskets. Vastwood has all concrete tees, nice signs, and trash buckets attached to each tee sign.
Cons: The tee pads are size dependent based on the hole length and most are shorter than they should be. There is level ground behind them though in which to start your step up. The distances on several of the tee signs are wrong. One says its 349ft uphill but is really 260ft. Don't know if there was a different pin placement or what but take note of this. Course becomes congested on the front nine with the basket of number 1 and number 5 really close to each other with the tee pads for 2 and 6 in the same area. Looking from the number 2 tee pad, you can see number 5's basket really close to you and number 4's basket on an almost straight line from the tee pad. The number 2 basket is located to the right of 4's basket behind a bush. This congestion is a safety issue during tournaments as people are sometimes scattered all over these holes. As others have mentioned there is a large lake but its used on no part of the course. It could have added some character to the course.
Other Thoughts: If you're reading this before going to play the course, be sure to write down the distances listed on the site as they are more accurate than the ones on the tee signs. Overall, Vastwood is a fun course that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels. More advanced players should have little trouble scoring well here while less skilled players would do well at a couple over par.
