Quiet walk in the woods

Pros: A couple shots worth throwing. I'd say holes #4, #7, and #8 the more enjoyable holes from a coolness and challenge perspective.

Hole 7 was by far the best hole. Its a tee shot from an elevated area (you have to back track from basket 6), and you have to thread a few trees coming out into an alley towards the basket on a hill. The basket has a fallen tree in front of it, which acts as a guardian tree a bit.

The woods area is really peaceful, and the trails are nice. Can also get a round in super fast due to course length.

I think all the tees did have signs, but they were either illegible (fade from sun) or not on the pole any more. Some of the baskets had a "next tee" arrow, which was helpful.
Cons: Obviously a major con is hole length. Way too many tee shots under 200 ft. Most tee shots for me were with a putter or mid range.

Tee boxes were dirt and not clear as to where to throw. Tee signs were faded and unusable.

Good amount of thorns in most of the course.

Fairways cross quite a bit. I was the only one on the course, so it didn't matter.
Other Thoughts: From the other reviews, going into it I knew there would be short holes and confusion getting to the next hole. This is true. So I came into it not expecting much. All in all, it was a nice hike in the woods.

Going from basket 5 to tee 6 was not obvious. You actually have to walk hole 16 almost to the basket to get to tee 6.
Going from basket 7 to tee 8 was not obvious. There is a next tee arrow on 7, but you walk past #10 tee first; #8 tee sign is knocked down and laying along side the semi-paved road.
At hole 7/8, I'd say the course starts to flow more without much backtracking. You have to back track from hole 14 to 15, where 15 tee box shares the same space as 7 tee box. As others have noted, 6, 15, 16 fairways all cross.
Basket 17 says the 18 tee box is in the opposite direction of where it actually is. And the 18 tee box took some searching. Once found, I couldn't find the 18 basket, so I just gave up and headed back to the car.

In case anyone who can change the course reads this post: The property is nice. I'm not sure how much land is actually available to play. Having an 18 hole course is obviously a plus, but I could see the course getting more play if it was a longer 9 hole (to start out). I'd look at combining a couple of the 130-150 ft holes if they are back to back (e.g., 13-14, 5-16), and maybe eliminate holes 1, 2, and 3.

Bottom line: If you're in the area, its barely worth a stop if you have the time. Don't think I'll be going back though.

Pros: Good starter/practice course.
Cons: I don't know if it might be because school isn't in session, but this course was severly unmaintained. Tees missing hole numbers, layouts, and directions to next tee. Maybe when the college season comes back into play these may be fixed, but if not be prepared to walk around trying to find the next tee, or obtain a course map.

Pros: Difficult throws in the woods which makes you rely on your short skills rather than your hucking.
Cons: Poison ivy everywhere. Looks like it hasn't been played in 15 years. No pars and the holes are really hard to find, espically hole 6.
Other Thoughts: They need to clear out the poison ivy more and just clear out the brush aswell. Need to see the pars aswell.
