Great short course. Level changes everywhere.

Pros: This course is a lot of fun and will test your short to midrange game. Great for beginners, as it doesn't have any 400+ holes and few trees. You can easily walk to the 4th tee with a minus 3. The level changes and deceptive hill locations test your putting. The play around the lake is fun as well. The lake water level changes quite frequently from what I've heard, but it was very low, and easy to avoid. It can test your depth as well. You throw over many ditches that look closer than they are. The level changes occur on almost every single hole.
Cons: Pretty short and not many obsticals. The pool was put in after the course and made them pervert the first 3 holes. The first hole is only 60 feet. The local players told me that it can have baskets completely disappear, due to water levels. It was low when I played, but they said that up to 4 of the baskets can be under water at any one time. The hole locations can be a good hike and hard to find. The baskets are comically short.
Other Thoughts: Print a course score card for distances. The tee markers are the best I've seen. Big wooden posts with the hole number on them. They could use a hole map, distance, and directions to the next tee though.

Pros: This is a fun weekend course because it gets barely any traffic. It is a great course to get out and practice your mid-range shots. You can play this hole course with a putter and a short fairway driver or long mid-range. A couple shots play over or near water and Hole 18 is a straight fairway shot with water to the right and Out of Bounds over a path to the left that plays downhill. A very quick 18 so can play multiple rounds quickly
Cons: Holes 1-3 are extremly short and bunched together. Some holes could be longer shots.
Other Thoughts: This is a young course that down the road will be excellent when the trees grow up. It's a nice course with good scenery and wide open shots. A bit of diversity after the first 4 holes. If you are considering going to this course make sure to start by large red siloh and follow directions on posts at Hole 5, 6 and 13 to figure out where to go for the next hole. When the wind picks up this course goes from easy to somewhat hard because it is so wide open. I play this course regularly and the wind is a pretty consitent factor. A birdie hole can easily become a bogey hole. All paths that you do no shoot over should be out of bounds. There are limited water holes but Hole 16 can be very tough. You have to shoot over water but not go to far because there is a path 30 feet behind the basket so if you don't want to play up short you better have a good shot or you'll be wet or OB long!! GREAT Safari course.
