interesting 9 holer
Pros: Mixed shot selection, plenty of trees and elevation. Tight fairways and rough shule. Good quality Discatcher baskets, and I believe (hope) that good quality teepads and signs are coming soon.
Cons: does not drain well at all. hole quality was compromised in favor of length in a couple of places.
This course's biggest problem is that it doesn't fit either the community-style easy p-n-p niche, nor the advanced-difficulty tournament-ready niche. It's too cramped for a tournament but too difficult to encourage new local players. It feels very much like a course that a long-time player would install on their own land, without regard for who will come to play it.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad someone was able to convince the city to put in a park. The course designer is obviously a rookie, but it's hard to find fault in the amount of effort being put in here. I hope that some teepads are moved (especially #2) and some pins get alternate locations (especially #3)... but overall it's a good quality 9-hole course.

The little 9 holer that could....
Pros: Nice little 9 holes that will test your game in all parts. There are some really great tunnel shots through the woods that provide awsome ace/bird runs but can quickly turn into 4's or 5's in a hurry! Then you have a couple of shots where you can test your arm out and throw some boomers over the trees. These couple of holes are 3 and 4 which are huge annys (RHBH) and you have to throw big or go home. There is no way to get there otherwise because the grass is to tall for skips or rollers. Great discatcher baskets that make it a little easier to find where you going. Natural teepads which I like. A couple of the really neat holes were 1, 5, 6, and 9. Not alot of elevation but the little that is there is used well. There are a couple of relly interesting greens with the locations of the pins.
Cons: Navigation is impossible!! The course designer showed up and lead the way or it would have never happened. There are too many baskets and too many blind shots to know where your going and I cant describe where they are because they are too close and it wouldnt make since. The baskets dont have numbers on them either so all you see at some points is 3 or 4 of them spread throughout the woods. A couple of the baskets sit close to other pads. Pads now are only marked with orange paint and therefor hard to find. Squishy in parts but looks to drain well due to sandy soil even though it was raining when I played.
Other Thoughts: The course is very rough due to only being in the ground for 2 days. There is tons of debris and tons of thorn bushes EVERYWHERE!!!!! Wear pants! I will be back in awhile when things get beaten down a little and some of the debris gets cleaned up. This might be one of the toughest 9 holers I've played and should be a stop for anyone once things get labeled a little better. The designer said a map and hole info he will get to me whenever they get it, so standby for updates.
