Pros: Park: Nice rural community park. Only one set of disc golfers were spotted as I was scouting the course.

Holes: Nice variation in elevation and approaches. Made me use some different shots. Tee pads in good condition with hole signs. Baskets serviceable and clearly numbered. #1 was interesting uphill approach... not a long hole but don't short arm it as you will have a blind shot from the "hole". #2 very basic straight shot...watch for grabby oak trees. #3 tested my anhyzer skills. #4 needed a low approach through the trees. #5 was fun as the hole sits on the rim of a a ravine. Short arm this or turn over and you are again looking up at a tough putt. #6 is a short stroll to an elevated tee pad. Longest hole with an approach through two trees...basket sits on side of a hill. #7 is a blind bomb over a pile of boulders. basket is shrouded with trees so throw strong and punch through the flora. #8 and #9 were very similar tons of trees and uphill. Great little workout climbing around this course and as I said had to pull out some shots not used often.
Cons: Flora and Fauna: Very grabby oaks dominate this course. Had to knock a few out of the branches. Poison oak is the word here be prepared or play in winter. Rattle snake signs so you have been warned.

Tee pads: Some of the pads are not even pointing to the baskets. This makes for some awkward run ups...watch your ankles. Tee signs nothing more than numbers which was a help but no other info on them. Someone tried to help us out and us a sharpie on some. It would be nice to see them upgraded.

Other Thoughts: Nice 9 hole course in a very peaceful rural setting. I have heard that their are a couple other top rated courses nearby. This would be a good jump start to day trip the 3 courses. Again nice community park with picnic tables and well maintained tee pads. I had a fun day playing hooky from work and getting some winter blahs out on this nice course.

Pros: Great park, pristine lake views
Almost always the only person on the course
try parking at the very top.
Cons: only 9 holes, i skip hole #1 (hard to find)
prickley brush that finds a way in your socks and inflicts a sort of slow torture to your ankles.
Other Thoughts: this is a park where the full experience weighs in on the actual course (a beautiful park to yourself) and makes it a really pleasent experience.
