Pros: Beautiful course with some nice elevation changes.
Not too woody.
Next tee pad is well marked from the previous basket.
Cons: The "rough" areas are really rough.
You will lose a disc in the swamp if you aren't careful.
We played the day after a rain storm and the course was really muddy.
Tee pads were not level.
Other Thoughts: With a little TLC this course could be a 4.5. I'm coming back when it's a little less damp to check it out.

Pros: Detailed tee signs, course care, variety
Cons: Tee boxes need grooming and absence of tee boxes for blue tees, easy to lose discs.
Other Thoughts: Goyne Park is mostly an open course but the hole placement and random sprouts of trees keep the game interesting. Most of the holes are fairly short and provide ace opportunities, but there are a few for big arms. They also vary from right to left doglegs so there's no favor for right or left handed players. The tee signs include distances from both tees and a map that shows, in addition to the hole, how to get to the next tee. If that isn't enough, there are other signs posted around to help you find the next tee. Goyne park isn't very large, so the course has to wind around itself. Fortunately, I've only ever been when there were only one or two other groups, but on a crowded day the course could be difficult to share as many of the holes play through or very close to other fairways and baskets.

It seems as though the people taking care of the course need a weed whacker because the course itself is very well maintained but the tee boxes are overgrown and appear snaky (Blue tees don't even have a tee box, and instead can be right up against the woods). The fairways are mowed lower than the surrounding grass to help guide you to the corresponding hole.

The biggest issue with this course is that if you aren't accurate it can be easy to lose a disc. The brush around the course is extremely dense and full of thorns. It can also get muddy around the lower holes with a lot of rain.

Overall, Goyne Park is a small but pretty course with a lot of variety. I'll definitely be playing out there again.

Pros: Lots of variety, right turns, left turns, low precision shots, grip and rips.

Actually very easy to navigate. Signs point to the next tee box.
Cons: You do have to be careful on some of the holes, there are very think vines and bushes on some of the holes.

Also, I could tell that water/mud could be a problem, so definitely give the rain a chance to dry.
Other Thoughts: Overall had a great time playing this course. Played the course from the white tees and there are definitely some challenging pars and some good chances for birdies.

I have a feeling some updates have been made to this course, because I thought it was really nice except for a few broken wood boxes at the tees which really wasn't a big deal.
