Nice little camp course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is a nice short, camp course. A good learners course or a place to work on your midrange game. Ace run potential and birdies are easily achieved here. There is a map in the Visitors Center.
Nice DGA baskets. The grounds were well kept on my visit. Nice and quiet round. Holes 3-7 are lightly/moderately wooded.
My favorite holes were #1 and #3. #1 was an elevated short hole that you will want to run for that ACE. #3 was a nice little tunnel type shot.
Cons: Upon my visit they were doing construction on #4's fairway. Also because of some construction I couldn't find #5's tee box, so I threw from where I thought it was supposed to be. On the left hand side of #3's fairway there was a horseshoe pit and a volleyball court. This would only be a con if there were campers here, and odds are you wouldn't be playing during that time anyway.
Navigation can be tricky at times so look for the brown wooden arrows on the trees to point you in the right direction.
Tees are mixed, some have stone markers and some are natural. Others are a wooden box dug in the ground with wood chips for footing. This is just a consistency thing. I would like to see it remain consistent all the way through is all.
Other Thoughts: Being as this is a camp style course this course works fine for younger kids or people that are just starting out. For a more seasoned player they will most likely be bored here. There are some lines to hit and most of the holes are reachable in 1, leaving you with a birdie opportunity. Not a must play but a great place to improve your short game or to introduce a young player to the sport. If you need a course with more distance in the Ark City area, I would suggest Camp Quaker Haven across the river.

Pros: A nice quick play. Decent Signage to guide you.
Not the most fun or challenging course. A little bit difficult to navigate.
I would also recommend making the trip to Winfield over this one. Is good for trying something different, but not that much of challenge or very pretty. Good for practice I suppose.
Never played when there were others on it, so always able to create your own course as you go if you want to make it a bit different.

Pros: A nice quick short course at the camp. There are tee signs on the trees to help guide you to the next hole. Great course for kids to learn the game at camp.
Cons: Tee pads are dirt and uneven. The old tee signs are stone and in the ground, hard to read but I think they are for an old layout anyways. $$$-$3 to play. It is a Camp maybe crowded during the summer.
Other Thoughts: I used to ride Mountain Bikes on the trails about 4 or 5 years ago. They used to take donations for that, I don't know if they charge for that now or not. But it looks like they were not getting the donations of 1 or 2 bucks so now they ask for the fee of $3. Still a nice course with only one other Private close by across the river, 20 or 30 minute drive to Winfield to play.
