Pros: Clean. Safe. Technical. Unique 'signature hole' (Hanging basket over a creek on #9). Quick play. Ample parking. Shelter. Walking track and playground.
Cons: Ground tees. Could use a couple of trees taken out (and this is coming from a guy who enjoys wooded holes!). Lack of elevation.
Other Thoughts: This was the first course my son and I took in while having a w/e trip to the Knoxville area. We enjoyed playing this course as it was quick and rewarded accurately released tee shots. Still, an errant throw can turn what appears to be an easy deuce into a bogie; so let the buyer beware!

Pros: This is a good course to practice your precision on. There isn't alot of room to let a distance driver rip 300 yards, so all you really need is a mid-range and a putter. The hidden tees give an extra challenge for the more advanced players. The hanging basket on hole 9 is a nice touch, as well. The flow of the course is set up nicely, You dont have to worry about getting lost here. Everything seems to be pretty linear. It generally takes around 30 minutes to play if you are alone or with a small group. This makes it good for a quick game to pass the time.
Cons: There isn't alot of variety here. Most of the holes are in dense wooded areas. One bad throw can throw off your entire game. Once again, there is only one hole that is open air, and thats on 8. Other than that, prepare to dodge trees.
Other Thoughts: Its a good course for practice on your precision throwing. If you are looking for variety, so to Groves park on the other side of town, but if you want a wooded excursion, this is a course that's fit to you.

 Challenging Short Course

Pros: This course can be really tough with lots of challenging throws through the woods. Some of the holes feature pretty creative uses of the space available. Good flow, with the hole on 9 being on the opposite end of the parking lot from where you began.
Cons: Kind of repetitive. Just about every hole has you throwing into or out of the woods. No real opportunities to let loose with a big throw.

Pros: If you want to get in a quick round this is the course for that. This course offers two natural tee pads at each hole. There is also "secret pads" known to locals as "Fearwood". These offer longer and more challenging throws.
Cons: I wish this course offered 18 holes but it is very in the amount of space available.
Other Thoughts: The hanging basket on 9 is a fantastic touch. Great use of the space available!
