D = Dud – no ability to Draw Dave back
Pros: As is usual for elementary school courses, they are designed for elementary aged kids (duh!). It is wonderful that they have this for gym class to introduce the game to kids (I have 3 elementary age kids myself), but I try to review/rate in a way that will be helpful to others who are like me. I try to measure and explain what about a course will draw me back to itself over and over and over. This course has zero/zilch/nada in that ability.
What I personally like and how this course stacks up in my list of 9 hole courses (over 110 played):
1) Holes with good risk/reward. Fair, but harsh punishment for bad decisions or execution. == D
(Wide open and short. Not much more to add to that.)
2) Holes that have rewarding birdie opportunities for me. I'm a Blue level player (950ish skill) who throws 300' accurately, 360' max. == D
(With holes ranging from 120 to 230 that are completely flat and devoid of obstacles, there is no challenge and therefore no reward. I suppose you could just run at aces all day long and have some fun.)
3) More wooded than open - lots of variety of shots required caused by hole shape and topography == D
(The only variety would be that the holes go in a lot of different directions, so on a windy day you would be faced with a wide variety of angles at which you would need to negotiate the wind.)
4) Natural beauty (Appalachian beauty preferred) and seclusion. == C-
(When you are behind the school you are not in view of any houses really except for the school. Even in the front, there are only 3-4 houses you can see so it is nice and quiet. It is not run down, but it is not spruced up or manicured in any way either.)
5) Bonus points for multi-throw holes with defined landing zones, good risk/reward and multiple options to play them. == NA (0 bonus points for this)
