Pros: Very pleasant course; it's quite scenic. Challenging holes, some blind drives, but playable for most skill levels. I like the rubber tee boxes.
Cons: As mentioned, the blind drives can be an issue - if you don't know the course and can't see the next basket, you may throw to the wrong basket. a map at the 1st tee would help a lot.
Other Thoughts: This course should get a lot of play next summer as it is the nearest course to many vacation resorts. I know I'll play it again!

Pros: The course is well laid out with several different types of challenges. The fairways through the woods are great. Well maintained and wide enough for most players but narrow enough to be challenging. The raised Neoprene tee pads are a great idea. Overall a decent course for most players.
Cons: While the layout is very nice the course is not marked. May want to walk it once to discover where all the baskets are. Either hole markers or a map near the 1st tee may be a good idea. Longest holes are around 300 ft. They plan on expanding so hopefully they will put a couple holes over 400 ft if possible.
Other Thoughts: Overall a well done course and seems appropriate for the area. Great course to play while vacationing up there or to take a drive for something different.

Pros: Was there for grand opening - Cross Lake Day in the Park - polite staff and community.
Brand new course - open 2 weeks, well laid out with various challenges - excellent course for novices to experiment with discs.
Nice walk through the woods - new sod for the fairways and installed underground sprinklers to keep it green - a cool walk in the summer.
The Neoprene tees, laid on a raised sand bed, were absolutely great - excellent footing.
Cons: No long fairways may discourage golfers who want to challenge their throw length.
Since its up north, there are a lot of mosquitoes and horse-flies.
Talked with maintenance crew - they want to expand to 18 holes some day, so take a little trip and play the course - it'll be worth your time
Other Thoughts: Easy to find - near downtown Cross Lake

Pros: The tees and pin positions are well set up to create the need a good fair amount of technical skill and creativity, yet still playable by those starting out. Wooded holes provide good shade cover and cool playing on warmer days. Newer course with rubber tee pads and mach 2 baskets.
Cons: Horsefies and mosquitoescan be a bother in the wooded holes at times. Only other drawback so far is that, although it is the nicest 9 hole course around, it is only 9 holes!
Other Thoughts: They have plans to expand but need two things: people out their using the course, and donations.
