Cute little course
13 Helpful / 1 Not
When I first played this course in Apr 2008 it was decent, but time and area construction have not been kind to it. Holes #8 and #9 have distance and challenge if you play with the OB road. There's really not too many Pros left on this course. The tee posts that are present all have hole numbers making navigation pretty easy. The teeing areas are only defined by patches of gravel, luckily they're not too slippery.
Hole #1 (tee and basket) is completely missing. All the tee signs on the posts have been lost or destroyed so there's no hole info other than the numbers on the posts. Basket #2 is ridiculously low with the bottom of the cage sitting on the ground. Baskets #3, 4, and 6 are all sitting below regulation height. Basket #5 is missing. Baskets are an inconsistent mix of brands.
Long ago this course was 18 holes and well reviewed. Then it lost nine holes and was just an "okay" course. Then they expanded the church buildings and the course was somewhat displaced. When baskets returned they're not even close to regulation height and hole #1 is MIA. It's too bad.
Original 2008 review
Very informative tee signs. They have a text description of the hole! "Next Tee -->" direction signs and bricks (even when the next tee is only 25 ft away). Baskets are in good condition.
Tee areas are of various types: some are grass, some gravel, some sand. None of the tee boxes are actually marked. A couple of the baskets have either sunk, or the ground around them has been built up such that they're not even close to the PDGA recommended 76-89 cm for rim height. Many of the distances on the tee signs are way off; some by as much as 50-60 ft. Overthrows on #2 will land in the fairway of #5.
Other Thoughts (2008):
To compensate for short distances on the first several holes the baskets are placed behind trees making Ace runs tougher, but birdies are still a real possibility. The last two long holes are made more difficult by a narrow fairway bounded by an OB road.
You can tell that a lot of thought and work was put into this course and it turned out pretty well. With some work to standardize the tee boxes and possibly add some length to the early holes it would be a better course.
