Pros: The course plays through a hilly, wooded area across the lake from the little 9 hole course. Most holes play through enough trees that you have to hit some lines, and thick brush and tall grass are often in play, especially on errant shots. There is a decent mix of hole lengths, with several ace runs and a few longer shots with most in the 250-300' range.

A few holes play near the lake, with a couple cool shots that actually use the water as a hazard to add a little risk/reward element. All the baskets other than one are in nice shape, a little rust but they catch well (one was crushed by a fallen tree, not sure how long that's been the case so I won't count it as a con against the course).
Cons: It's a little hard to find the course in the first place, you have to drive up a little dirt track off the main road, and park in the dirt area off to one side. There are no signs or course maps, so navigation is a struggle in several places, especially with several baskets in view from a few tees. The tees themselves are in pretty bad shape, most are carpet or gravel, and they aren't very smooth or level at this point.

The holes get a little repetitive in spots, it's just not all that creative of a design. I would have liked to see better use of the elevation changes and the water hazard, so it was a little disappointing. The maintenance was a little lacking, with tall grass on several of the fairways. I'm not a big fan of long grasses as rough, and I'm even less a fan of long grass that hides discs covering whole fairways. If it's like that in the winter, I'm guessing it gets pretty gnarly in the late spring and summer.
Other Thoughts: There are a few nice challenges here, but overall it's not all that exciting a place to play. I do like the idea of having a beginner friendly 9 and a tougher 18 in the park together, with a little work and a few changes this could be a cool complex. Beginners might find the rough a little punishing, but there's a nice beginner friendly course across the lake. More experienced players will find some challenges here, but not enough variety to make it worth repeated trips.
