Its a start
Pros: The title says it all. This layout blows the old one away with a few holes not making the cut, resulting in a lower rating. The elevation is used pretty well for what little there is. Many of the greens make for interesting upshots as well as putts. The course doesnt really favor one type of player because there is just about every shot you can throw. It is fairly lefty friendly although where its not, it really isnt! The teepads are crushed granite which is a little different but most are in good shape. Most all of the baskets are brand new and are in good shape. There is far more challenge here then the old layout which will bring alot more players Im sure. Bring your A game and alot of patience for awhile because it still is fun despite quite a bit of negatives.
Cons: Some of the underbrush is BRUTAL! The little sticky tights get old even if you under the basket, both should be taken care of with more play. Holes 12, and 13 need TONS of work and are pretty dumb as they stand now ruining alot of the potential here. Not alot of shade here making for a very hot round. The pond on 6 will eat alot of discs for those who cant clear it, so lay up because its nasty. Many of the teepads are already getting big ruts in them and the grid is starting to show making for some akward footing. More trash cans would be great.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course and it was really ruined to me by holes 12 and 13. When every person playing the course has the same drive <100 feet just to have a chance at your next shot just isnt golf to me and it seems they just tried to do a little too much instead of just letting the land help you out. They have moved the tee for 11 making it more of a hole then before. They are really that bad. I have a feeling that with play many things will be taken care of and the rating will go up but as of now its stuck at a 3.

Pros: Good mix of holes and shots. Way more challenging than the previous layout. Tee boxes are well maintained and the park is normally well kept by the city.
Cons: Hole 6 pond is going to eat alot of discs (it has two of mine already). We need a bridge on hole 3 please too. Also there is alot left to clear and trample down now. Time and the designers hard work will take care of that tho.
Other Thoughts: Holes 11, 12, 13 (the basket is in but no tee box yet), 15, and 16 are not fully finished yet. Don't expect a well groomed course yet as its a work in progress. Shoot high and hard on number 6 if you decide to go over the pond since the pond's low pressure causes your disc to drop. Don't over think it or it will psyche you out.
