Pros: Awesome course for being privately owned. Tom is a great guy to play with. Great angles and elevation. Very long holes allowing full use of your arm.
Cons: Cow pies. They're harmless though, just processed grass.
Other Thoughts: Very tough. Wouldn't recommend for beginners. One of the best courses I've played in 15 years.

Pros: elevation with a technical twist. some benches are nice. possible angus aces. course has so many possibilities for change.
Cons: poop, but play with Tom who has convenient poop pouches to clean all areas that may be affected.
Other Thoughts: This course is one of the best the state has to offer. Not very beginner friendly. Tom has done an excellent job manicuring fairways and cleaning up the rough.. Keep up all the great work Tom. Love your course.

Pros: Mixture of par 3s & 4s with a par 5. Lots of benches are great after climbing hills. You will need to earn your deuces on the par 3s while the par 4s require at least 2 good shots to get your 3. Most of the time you will have this entire private course completely to yourself with only the sound of the occasional car or boat, mooing of cows and the sounds of birds in this peaceful area with beautiful scenery.
Cons: As mentioned, the herd of black angus cattle means you need to keep your eye on where you are walking. Despite this, incidents with discs are pretty rare - only 3-4 times over dozens of rounds. Watch out for the electric fence that serves as the outer border around the course, but it is easy enough to slide under it when needing to retrieve a disc.
Other Thoughts: I am lucky to be able to walk to this course from my house (despite living in a different county!). In general, the baskets all catch well so the mix is not a problem. Tom and the local crew have done a lot of work to get the tees in good shape and to remove most of the pesky thorn bushes.
Update 2012: Tom continues to tweak and toughen up his course. The basket for hole #4 has been moved back to a slippery green requiring a drive and an approach. He has made numerous, smaller changes to basket locations, etc.

Pros: A private course with a good mix of holes. A fair amount of elavation, with longer holes having wider fairways & shorter holes a bit tighter. Rubber tee pads & tee signs on all holes. Benches on 13 holes. Course length 7010 par 62. Senic course with an out in the country feel Free to play call for reservations.
Cons: Not any real sharp dog legs, a mix of baskets Mach, spiderweb, innova disccatcher.db-5 & a heard of black angus
Other Thoughts: i don't want to discourage anyone from playing here but I don't think it is beginer friendly. I have played 120 courses & this one IS in my top 5 !!!!
