Pros: -nice concrete pads, bathrooms and drinking fountains
-course plays over slightly rolling terrain with many large mature trees that give you a variety of lines, there are some downhill shots, and some slightly uphill shots, but most holes roll slightly
-good variety of hole length, from 200' to 380', matched with the trees and terrain, some of the holes are genuinely challenging.
-decent variety of shots required, a few rhbh slight annies, some slight hyzers, but it lacks any hard hyzer or hard anhyzer shots.
-Nice use of OB especially on the last hole. The pin for hole nine is in the back of a peninsula surrounded by road, if you over power the shot, you'll be OB.
-A couple holes like 6 have smaller fairway trees that will only increase the technical nature of the hole as time passes
Cons: -tee signs are not informative, just hole number and length, no indication of where the next tee is, therefore I found myself wandering a bit, especially after 3, 7, 8.
-The walk on hole 8 (I was a bit off the fairway) was super muddy, I think it borders a dirt lot or road but I wasn't sure as leaves were covering the ground.
Other Thoughts: This is surprisingly a nice course for a small rural city park course, I was pleasantly surprised. Whoever the designer is did a great job utilizing the topographical features of the course. I just wish there were another nine holes like the ones put in. I'll definitely play here again.
