Pros: For a course plotted by a high-school student, 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 really cool large central firepit near tee #8 that is usually stocked with some wood. Kids playground, bathroom in the west half of the park, trash cans near all these.
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, coons and deer are not unusual in the morning hours.
If the local constabulatory will stand it, this could be a great night course.
Cons: The tees are a disappointment, considering how well the course is laid out. I'm sure with the cost of baskets that the budget was tight for the youngster who put this course in. I played 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.

Great 9 Hole Course
Pros: Very peaceful, very clean, calls for different types of shots, layed out and designed well.
Cons: Teeboxes are basically worthless because they are about 3 feet long. The chains on the baskets are single layered and can spit a disc out easily. The course is sort of out of the way and is only 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: I live in Mobile and this course is about a 35-40 minute drive, but it is definitely worth playing. When we go, we play it around 3 times or so. If you are around the area, I would recommend giving this course a shot.
