Pros: The course plays through some nice woods and some grassy fairways with brush lining them. Many of the holes have good risk reward, errant shots off the fairway will almost certainly cost strokes. The baskets are in good shape, and the fairways are nicely mowed. There aren't any conflicts with other park uses.
Cons: There is no marking other than faded spraypaint on the ground. The scorecards at the course are for an old layout making them completely useless, and the map here is only slightly more helpful. We think we found all 9 baskets and played them the way they were intended, but that took well over an hour of wandering for a short 9 hole course. Just painting the grass to mark tees and navigation isn't sufficient.

The course feels very unfinished, the fairways have dead branches and small stumps all over the place. the 'tees' are often in the same shape, without very good footing or tee surfaces. The actual holes are interesting for putter/superclass shots but don't offer much challenge with very little length and the only real challenge coming from some pinball trees on a few holes.
Other Thoughts: This is not a course to go out of your way for, and without a guide it's quite difficult to really play. Beginners will find the course short, but punishing and frustrating to follow. More experienced players won't find many interesting challenges, and should be able to reach all holes with a putter. There is some potential on this piece of property, but a lot of work needs to happen to make this much of a course.
