Scruffy and Confused
*My favorite hole is 15. It's a challenging 385 ft hole with well defined fairway with scenic large trees. Placing your drive is important because it ends with the basket on the other side of deep water overflow stream.
-Swamps! There are drainage problems on 11 fairways (1, 2 is very bad, 3-7, 12, 14, 17-18. Basket 6 was in the middle of a swamp. Very frustrating! Only play here in dry summer.
-Totally flat! Only two holes have any elevation change at all and those are a mere +4 ft and - 3 ft.
-The terrain feels scruffy. Lots of thick gnarly undergrowth and thorns make it easy to lose a disc.
-A few holes need more trees to be cleared to be fair.
-The course can be a bit hard to navigate. Some tees were hard to find, and there are some old obsolete concrete tees from the original design scattered around in a few places. Also, 5 baskets were hard to see from the tee.
-I didn't like the S curve fairway on hole 9 very much; I thought it was a poor shape. Although there's pretty good fairway shape variety (9 St/ 2 Lt/ 3 Rt/ 3 S/ 1 L), there are a few too many straight, and the S curves got a little old by the 3rd one.
-The course level has a confused identity whether it's Red or White. (Lengths: 4 of 105-170/ 5<299/ 8<399/ 1 of 430) See the notes below.
Course Level: White (most suited for Intermediate players rated 900.) The course seems confused as to what level it's designed for. On the front 9, with six short holes (4 of 105-170 ft. and 2 of 200-215 ft.) it plays very much like a Red level course, but the back 9 holes are longer and they play like a White level course. So it's either White level with some short holes or Red level with longer holes including five Red CR par 4s. I chose to designate it an easier White level course.
I didn't much care for holes 1, 5, 9-10, 17-18, so I started not liking the course much, felt the same in the middle, and ended feeling very blah. I just knocked the swamp mud off my shoes and moved on to the next course. I don't have much desire to play here again.
A note about my rating: My rating is a subjective measure of my enjoyment of the course, on the day I played it, and it is NOT intended to be a measure of the quality of the course. My ratings are given "on the curve" in relation to all other courses I've played.
