Last three holes interesting
Pros: Though I am only giving this a .5 (which equals bad on the rating description); I am going to say primarily positive things about the course.
You want an ace? Play here....
Suits elementary school course goals very well. The first six holes are quite basic and teach straight lines. Thus encouraging mids or putter tosses rather than high speed drivers; heizering all over the place.
Different colored baskets for each hole is actually kind of neat.
The last three shots are interesting; regardless of skill level. All three are so technical, that a very inventive shot is required for each; despite the short length.
Very low ceiling and/or very dense little trees to navigate.
This section is situated in a quite pretty little pine forest.
Course is very easy to navigate; primarily due to shortness. With the exception of the missing tee (see cons) on #5 they do all have tees; which is more than can be said for quite a few school courses.
Gonzo's safari 10 is a nice upgrade. Doesn't make for a great course by any means, but, puts it nearly in the "real course" category.
Regarding the safari layout; as with the original; the last three pins make for the most interesting shots and a few of these are used more than once; for safari layout (I actually took a four on the shot to the blue practice basket; which requires a first drive under a quite low hanging branch).
The next to last hole of the safari layout is the best example of forcing players to learn a forehand roller; that I have EVER seen (more than 525 courses played). The only other option for this shot (which I chose) was a low forehand skipper (rhbh). A good caddie would tell you to use the forehand roller; and if I lived around here; I believe I would spend whole afternoons simply learning/practicing that particular shot.
Home crafted baskets catch just fine.
Cons: Tee board in the ground for #5 is missing. There was a somewhat worn spot on the ground that I shot from; for all three different shots from there; and this spot worked well for all three.
Course, as designed, is ridiciously short.
School course; meaning no play during school hours; no smoking, no drinking, etc.
If tree vandalizism occurs on that last three hole section; the uniqueness of those will disappear. Let's hope this doesn't happen; and most importantly; don't you be the one to vandalize! Remember this is really the only thing that makes the course worthwhile.
Other Thoughts: Original Jaycee Quarry course designer, worked with Mr. Gonzo to create this little course (as well as LTC Cleveland).
