Not amazing, not bad though

Pros: -Baskets are in good shape
-Park doesn't seem very busy; there was no one there when I was there, and the baseball diamond appears to be essentially abandoned
-There's a walking path on the other side of the river for pedestrians to go, so not a lot of 'civilian' activity on this course.
-Pro, Am, and Beginner tees for every hole! And they go by color, which helps when trying to find the next hole
-Stakes at the bottom of each basket directing players to the next tee.
Cons: -All natural (read: muddy) tees
-Even with arrows on each basket, some holes are hard to find/understand, especially 7 and 8. When you get out of the woods, there are some baskets and there are some pads, but it's not clear which goes where. Pretty minor.
-A little difficult to find the course itself when you get to the park. We had to ask some locals who were on the path across the river; they were kind (and knowledgeable) enough to help us out.
Other Thoughts: Overall I found this to be a surprisingly fun, short, mostly technical course. A couple of holes were right next to a wide river, which I'm a sucker for. It's got a certain atmosphere to it...there's a bit of trash floating around, and some campfire sites (teens? vagrants?); one of the holes has a tattered pirate flag hanging in the middle of the fairway, and the tee boxes are put together in such a way (rocks spray painted different colors to indicate skill level, with a spray painted number somewhere nearby to indicate hole number) that it seems like the course has been sort of strung together by a band of misfits or something. It's kind of cool. It shows that someone loves the place. Not a destination, and certainly not a place to go bombing drives but by no means a bad course.

Pros: Quick course, not crowded.
Cons: Tees and signage need improvement. Holes 7-9 are really boring
Other Thoughts: This course has a over-exaggerated "shady" reputation. This season (2012) the course has not only increased in upkeep, but a lot of work is being done to improve the signage. Especially nice are plastic markers attached to the baskets indicating the direction of the next tee.
