 Very Nice Course

Pros: This is a very well maintained course. The grass was cut pretty low and there was not alot of high brush to lose a disc into. There are a wide variety of long and short shots. Shot shaping will be necessary on some holes. Front nine is mostly open with a few trees to contend with. The back nine is somewhat more wooded with some holes cleverly tucked into the treeline. Back nine is tougher than front. Another thing that I really liked were the rubber tee pads instead of the normal concrete. There are two tees for each hole, the blue have the rubber pads and the red tees are on natural grass.
Cons: The worst part is that this is a private course for Lexmark employees or friends of employees. Tournaments are open to all so that is how I got to play there. The only other real complaint I would have is that there is a creek separating the front nine from the back with no bridge to cross. Instead there is a rather treacherous path of rocks and cinderblocks that you must walk across.
Other Thoughts: Best holes IMO are #5;#6;#12:#17. 5 and 6 remind me of my home course because of the OB dangers nearby the baskets. It is challenging but not overly so. #12 is a uphill shot that you must carefully navigate because of three large cedars guarding the basket. It would take a big hyzer or anny to possibly ace it. #17 is another hole that reminds me of my home course because of the tightly wooded shots you must make between the tee and the basket. Overall I think that this course is great fun and one of the best I have ever played.

Pros: Both long and short tee's, long pads are flypads that are in very good condition, most shots require skill (shooting through a gap between trees and/or throwing over OB to get the duece on most holes), Course is usually fairly windy, has several elevated holes and to score well you need to be able to do more than throw a hyzer
Cons: Standing water in several places and course has a tendancy to flood due to small creek that seperate the back nine and the front nine, If water is up there is not way to cross over from the front to the back without a quarter of a mile walk (I'm sure that this issue is being rectified), Some poinson ivy has been noted within close proximity of a few baskets. Hole 7 and 13 are extremely tight and require more luck than skill to get dueces on these holes. Course is kind of hard to navigate without maps which are available on hole 10 not hole 1.
Other Thoughts: Course has been fastly improved due to new teepads and a few new pin locations. This is personally my favorite course in Lexington. The only thing that I could think of that could make this course any better is to possbile plant a few more trees on a few of the open holes, some more man made OB's on a few of the dinkers and maybe a touch more length.
