Pros: -Really well maintained Community college green space, nicely mowed
-Tee signs were informative
-Lots of mature and recently added deciduous trees, almost all holes had a few with the exception of hole 6 which only had 2 right off the pad
-Nice decent sized concrete pads
-A little bit of elevation changes
-good hole length range for a par 3 course, anywhere from 220' to 400'
Cons: -No facilities (no bathrooms, water fountains, shelters, or garbage cans)
-Tee signs were placed oddly, looks like the placed them really near the pad for mowing ease
-This area was huge, it could have supported more holes and more interesting shots, there is a pond that doesn't come into play at all.
-Some of the trees need to be trimmed up some, for instance on hole 9 there is a tight (15-20 ft) tunnel right off the tee, the basket is 280 or so and protected, but the tunnel ceiling is so low that you either have to poke and hope or throw a roller, trimming it up even to a 6-8 ft ceiling would make the hole more enjoyable.
-Although there are alot of trees, on almost every hole (except nine and maybe two more)you can avoid them by throwing a hyzer out and around, so the shot diversity leaves a lot to be desired.
Other Thoughts: -Fun little par 3, 9 hole course that is a pretty quick play
