Pros: Aesthetic--nice course plays through a field and weed patch (literally) of a christian summercamp/campground.

Baskets--apparently homemade? look like old school mach 14's with deeper more straight sided baskets. Flags mark the baskets and this is very helpful in places.

Teesigns--it became apparent that the tee signs "pointed to" the basket when I got to number 4, which I threw to the basket for 7 on.
Cons: Navigation--navigation here is rough. I threw to the basket for 7 from the 4th tee (which the basket is in the weeds apparently). the tee signs "point to" the basket but this is tough to follow at times also. there are a couple of "next tee" signs on some of the longer walks.

Teesigns--1x8's on pvc driven into the ground with "tee #" spray painted on them. no distances are given and I forgot to get them via GPS.

Rough--on the deep weedy holes 4-7 the rough is IMPOSSIBLE to find discs in and the fairways (as you can see in my pic of #6) are about 4ft. wide. Best of luck.

Variety--the open holes are SUPER OPEN, the deep weedy holes are SUPER TIGHT that's all I have to say about that...

"teepads"--non-existant, rutted up grass, not even a "skid mark" not played much I guess.

Upkeep--the grass in the field is pretty long and there are a lot of weeds that are big enough to knock your discs around. keep your stuff high in the fields to avoid this. Plenty of garbage in the field and the weeds.
Other Thoughts: Be careful on 4-7 or you will lose discs here.

I made and posted a map to help your navigation

I had no issues playing here, I contacted per the site and was very cordially invited to come out and play

 Fun course with beautiful land

Pros: Great variation of holes, uphill and downhill bomb, good use of land and obstacles. Long and short holes. 9 hole course that plays through rolling hills. Baskets are homemade but are totally legitimate. Look like Chainstars but are a bit smaller leaving less margin of error for putting which in my book is a pro because you just have to be more accurate, they catch great. The course designer has obviously played golf before because the tees utilize all the elevation and challenge the course has to offer, pin placements are great and also utilize the rolling hills to have blind holes and some holes tucked near and behind trees. Adequate signage w/ distances on most of the tee signs. Course flows pretty well, only issue right now is the walk between holes 6 and 7.
Cons: Natural pads but I wouldn't expect there to be. Long walk between holes 6 and 7.
Other Thoughts: I had very low expectations for this course and I was very pleasantly surprised. If you are in the area playing Hammond Hill and still want to play a little more golf call ahead and make a trip out here is just a few miles out of town and is a fun time.
