Pros: As with the other Army COE dam courses in the area, the grounds here are well maintained. Grass is mowed and fairways kept relatively clear.
The tee shot on hole 8 is one of the most fun shots I've ever had. The tee is tucked just inside the tree line, high on a hill. The hole plays out over the channel to a protected green. If you want a shot at a two, clearing the channel is not enough, placement is key.
The nine holes are well designed and fair. I'm not a huge fan of hole nine. It's tricky and tends to be more of a frustration than a test. But the rest are fun and creative.
For a nine hole course, there is quite a bit of variety here between wooded and open holes.
Cons: Baskets aren't in great shape. There's definitely potential for spit outs or bounce outs.
Natural tees can be hard to find at times (look for #6 on the bridge and #1 at the very end of the dam).
Other Thoughts: This would make a really solid 18 hole course. However, as a nine-holer, it is lacking the "wow factor" that would make it a viable option over some of the other local courses. However, there are some fun holes here and it makes a nice quiet supplement to nearby Buffumville.
