Tale of Two Courses, Part II
3 Helpful / 0 Not
You can tell that lots of effort has been put in to create and maintain this course - plenty of benches, signs, baghooks, recycling bins, clean.
Quit flat. Quiet short.
This course appears to be the back nine of the original course, with nine newer holes accessible between original holes 12 and 13. The original holes have framed teepads, Discatchers, and are over 200' in length, while the newer holes have natural tee locations, Murray(?) baskets, and most are under 200'.
Other than the open first hole, which has you throwing over, or around, the corner of a baseball field fence, the course is set entirely in a patch of small, intertwined trees (low, thick canopy). Throwing paths tend to be moderate, small, and smaller, and with ~75% of the holes being ~250' or less in length, this course places an emphasis on control. Straight off the tee, dodging a few trees along the way, will suffice on most holes, but you'll also need a few rights and lefts - need to have a varied mid-range game.
Navigation: From where the entry road enters the parking lot, tee-1 (original-10) is to the left of the leftfield foul territory, with its basket being located where a long homerun down the leftfield line would land. After playing hole-3 (original-12), a small path to the left will lead you to the newer holes, while turning right will continue with the original course. Either way, from there, its pretty much follow the obvious path.
Worth a visit if you "happen" to be in the area (how can one just happen to be in Virginia's lower Eastern Shore?) If I had time to play just one round of 18, I'd play the original course, as the holes, on average, are longer, the fairways better defined, and the teepads a step above natural.
