Pros:
Tees marked by in-ground circular concrete medallions which list the hole number, the distance, and the direction to the basket.

Webpage at http://www.overacker.com/fishburn.htm provides an excellent description of each hole.

Good use of the land available (water-holding land between a road and a creek).
Cons:
Holes #7-#9 play near a walking path.

Tee "pad" is the dirt/grass next to the tee marker.

Being below street level and next to the creek, the ground holds water quite well.

Most holes geared for a RHBH hyzer throw.
Other Thoughts:
First tee is to the right of the tennis courts. Course plays in a counter-clockwise direction, first down the hill, then down the meadow, keeping the creek to your right, until you reverse course after hole #5, keeping the road to your right.

Distance of holes: minimim 156', maximum 352', average about 275'.

Fairly open, with a few trees or the creek to keep your focus.

Pros: to few to list, but if I had to say anything good about this course is that it's a course for people to learn to play DG
Cons: Shared tees with multiple holes. Hole # 5 went nowhere, then you had to backtrack and throw into another hole. Dirt tees.
Other Thoughts: Why couldn't the course be extended over the creek?? I personally think the course should be redesigned. But i'm a tourist and not a local.
