Pros: This is a fairly well tended 9 hole in the main city park in Connell. Not overly difficult but the designers used what they had to introduce some challenge. Tees are marked with a round pavingstone that has a blue board next to it in the grass. Fairly logical layout that zigzags across the park.
Local kids were helpful in finding tee for 2( by gazebo next to skate park) and this was a pleasant short stop on our way down Highway 395.
Cons: Since tees are a board in the grass a couple were hard to find as they were mostly grown over. The paving stone made these easier to locate. Hole 6 throws along trees by road and we didn't find tee until after round(1/2 way between pin 5 and skate park along road). No maps or signs didn't help navigation. Fairly short with most holes being very open.
Other Thoughts: It is easy to get to from 395 and worth a quick stop if not in a rush. I get by that way fairly often and will occasionally stop here in future, but not every time.

Only Course For 33 Miles!
Pros: The town of Connell sits between I-90 and the Tri-cities surrounded by fields of wheat, potatoes and hay. The little community park has a water park and a skate board park. The park is lush green (obviously well watered) green with a few trees around the perimeter. The first tee is right behind the building. The tees are always difficult to find. Apparently for mowing purposes, they are blue boards layed in flush with the ground. The baskets are new DGA ones. Except for # 6, the course plays back and forth across the park with all the holes in the range of 200 to 300 feet. Most of the baskets had a little sticker which said next tee and an arrow pointing. They helped me find most of the tee boards. There is a small, maybe 15 high ridge on the south side of the park giving you a little elevation to throw off. Other than that, the park is flat. There are a few scattered trees. I like hole # 4 best which was just a basic 280 footer off the slightly elevated hill to a basket semi-protected by a large tree in front. # 6 and # 7 play back and forth across the fields near some ballfields although I don't think these fields get any regular use. # 9 finishes fairly far off in the corner of the park.
Cons: I never found the tee board for previous reviewer Sillybiz's Signature Hole # 6 so Iwasn't able to grasp the full impact of that hole. The winds were howling and definitely affected my game.
Other Thoughts: This course is just like the farm girl woman in Connell. You know that girl who would be a "5" in Las Angeles or Miami............well she's a "9" in Connell. Well this course would be a 1.0 in Charlotte or Portland or Austin or somewhere. But here in Connell, I'd come and play this course and give it a 1.5.
I'd probably play this course backwards and forwards. I'd play it in the wind. I'd play safari golf. On hot days, I'd cool off in the water park after playing. Then I'd chill with my farm girl. Remember, It's the only game in town.
