Pros: For a course plotted by 2 high-school students, I'm duly impressed. Excellent use of plateaus, elevation gain and loss, and side-hilling are evident. New trees and other recently-planted vegetation will increase the difficulty on #s 2, 3, and 9---the only holes that could be considered "open".
Its a short, inventive course, not quite a pitch-and-putt unless you're very good, and it does favor RHBH somewhat. Its also mostly clear of undergrowth and you're unlikely to lose a disc[rarely, in deep leaves], so its great for novices.
The course circles clockwise, mostly outside the area of other types of human intervention. Maturely wooded except for #s 2-3, although you're not much hidden from other users of the park. A rocky-bottomed storm creek crosses diagonally through #3 fairway, but unless you're there while it's torrentially raining, you shouldn't see any water in it.
A really cool large central firepit near tee #8 that is usually stocked with some wood. Kids playground and bathroom in the west half of the park, with trash cans near all these spots.
Review title comes from the pheasant that shot out of the brush left of hole #3. Woodsy river bottomlands just to the east, so seeing waterfowl, raptors, raccoons and deer are not unusual in the morning/evening hours.
If the local constabulatory will stand it, this could be a great night course.
Cons: The 3'x3' tees are a disappointment, though you hardly need any run-up with the short course. I'm sure with the cost of baskets that the budget was tight for the youngsters who put this course in. Its easy to play behind them for a little extra distance.
Watch your footing in the plethora of leaves and acorns.
Not enough room from other people for mutts who like to roam, so keep 'em leashed.
Other Thoughts: The course is in the section of park EAST of Mill Road. Park on Park St. just east of Mill Rd. 1st tee is just east of the parking lot. I wouldn't drive 80 miles to play it, but I've been in town several times helping a friend with horse duties and its worth the time for a round or three. Lots of stores/eateries within a mile.

Needs better tee-pads
Pros: 1) Very nice layout, great use of the given land, enspecially evevation
2) moderately challenging, but not an "extreme" course.
Cons: 1) Standstill Teepads (3ft X 3ft concrete slabs). For most holes I had to use the grass around the tee to tee off
2) Only 9 holes. for an out of the way course, 9 holes is a long drive
3) No benches, trashcans, ect
4) tee pads are only marked by a number, and can occasionally be confusing
Other Thoughts: for the most part the layout made sense (played in winter, easy to find the next tee), and was actually a decent course. But having to drive from the grass beside the SHORT teepads really turned me against this course. Not a bad play, but need bigger teepads
