Pros: The back nine has some fun holes when you find them. It varies from wooded holes to sparsely treed holes and there are some good lines there if you can locate them. A few completely wooded holes with clean fairways of good width. A bunch more holes that traverse scattered trees but they are scattered heavily. Lines are tricky and a few verge on plinko but they are fun. More fun than challenging but fun. Underbrush is non-existant and holes are interesting enough for experienced players but simple enough for beginners.
The back nine has absolutely the worst navigation I have ever seen. (Not that the front nine is better). Forget scouting the basket. You would have to do concentric circles because from many of the tees, the direction of the fairway is a complete guess. There are scattered trees on all sides. A few of the holes have the tee signs which make that point moot, but for the majority of these holes, the tee sign is missing. All that remains is a post with the hole numbers tacked on. Occasionally there are too flags which mark the throwing line, but that still leaves two options for throwing direction. The poles are also quite difficult to see so it can be hard to find them from the previous basket. All-together, visiting players will do quite a bit of wandering here.
The back nine does end on two holes which play along the park road but the real bad spots of the course are the in the first nine. These holes just aren't much fun. A stretch of holes that play along the edge of the park and among a few piles of equipment and park buildings. Lot of stuff to hit in the fairway and a short fence which separates the course from residential property on the right. After that there is a series of holes which zigzag across an open field. Of course multiple baskets are typically in view and you might throw to one and realize it has the wrong number.
Other Thoughts: For those who know the course, this can be a fun round. But it's not worth the time for players passing by to have to figure it out.

Pros: They have brand new baskets.
Cons: There are no fairways in the wooded areas, this means more than half the course is just covered in woods. With no path to follow. about a thousand trees need to be knock down.
Other Thoughts: Ive played a lot of courses in NC and this one for being in a park and having great baskets for 18 holes is no were near being finished. frustrating
