1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Some P&P densely wooded holes for working on the short game and a few longish Par 3's to work the mids/drives. I don't envision a "Smithfield Open" any time soon, but this course is definitely worth more than a zero rating.
The course is well maintained, has plenty of parking & restrooms. Regulation baskets all in good condition. If you play early morning you basically eliminate the potential negative "non-player interaction".
Cons: This is a shared/multi-use park, and has the expected negative aspects as such.
Hole #1 - crosswind fade & you could be nailing a car in the parking lot.
Hole #2 - picnic area on the left "could" be an issue, but it would have to be a really bad throw.
Hole #7 - Unless you have pinpoint accuracy, best to skip this hole. Tight tunnel, impenetrable shule w/ brackish "creek".
Hole #8 - Not sure what the designer was thinking on this one, no reasonable path to the basket.
Hole #9 - Like hole #2, a really bad throw could drift into the playground.
Other Thoughts: Hole #1: 346 feet minor hazard, drainage creek mid-fairway
Hole #2: ~310 feet wide open.
Hole #3: ~245 feet technical, guarded pin.
Hole #4: ~150 feet potential ace run.
Hole #5: ~155 feet technical 2 path.
Hole #6: ~145 feet dogleg left.
Hole #7: ~310 feet tunnel, dogleg left
Hole #8: ~250 feet NO path - skip this hole.
Hole #9: ~310 feet minor hazard, cross creek
I think this course should land in the 1.5 - 2.5 rating overall. A good 9 (7) hole practice course, no more & no less.
