Pros: There are many different tee pads to give 18 holes play different almost every time it's played.
Cons: The course is hard to navigate for people that havent played there before.
The hill on hole 6 is dangerous if it has rained recently.
Other Thoughts: It is a fun course to play if your stopping through town.

Pros: Concrete tee pads, elevation changes, lenghthened holes.
Cons: a few holes are a little short, but are necessary to accomidate course flow.
Other Thoughts: Within the last two years there have been several changes to this course. There are concrete tee pads on every hole, but some alternate tee pads are still crushed limestone. #3 has been stretched out to 500' from the long tee, #4 basket has been moved, #5 is a short hole but a 2 is useful on the front 9 as it is more difficult than the back 9. #6 has been lenghthened to around 400'. #7 has an alternate tee pad across the creek. #10 basket was moved to 280', #11 moved to 350', #12 moved to 300', #14 moved to create a more challenging tee shot with a fast green. #15 is stretched out to 400'. Overall the course plays with more challenges than the past, longer holes are a nice change and when playing the roads and rope fence as out of bounds it can be even more challenging as numerous fairways squeeze down to 30 or 40 feet wide in landing zones. Still plays as all par 3's, except #3 from the long tee, plays to a 4. If you can deuce #2 it is rare. The course has been made better by the locals with a lot of cooperation of the parks dept. who have been very accomidating to our requests. There will be more tournaments played there as the first C tier is scheduled for July 2011.

Pros: This course is fun. If you enjoy aceable holes then this is your course. Also you get to throw putters and midranges which is kind of nice. I am a power player, but I love this course.
Cons: Tee pads are gravel/dirt and get a little lopsided at times.
Other Thoughts: My homecourse is superlong so it is a nice break from that. If your looking for a challenge then it may not be your course. But if your looking for a fun relaxed time and some possible aces then this is your course.
