Pros: Perkins park has lots of mature trees with no underbrush. There are two sets of tees and nine baskets. The course is set up so the alternate pads play like a different hole rather than simply long or short pads. To me this makes it feels a lot more like an 18 hole course with 18 different holes than the majority of 9 holers I've played. The natural tees are well marked by red and blue 4x4's standing up with tee signs on them. There are also next tee signs by each basket so navigation is relatively easy except in one place.
The course has a great balance of hole lengths. More than half the course is in the 225-280ft range, but there's a few over 300 and a couple over 400. I was happy to see it had a good shot variety with some RHBH turnovers and some of the holes have multiple routes through the trees.
Cons: We had a tough time finding 13's tee pad. Instead of following the next tee arrow towards 4 & 13, walk the opposite direction and you'll find 13's tee on the right side of hole 4's fairway behind some trees.
On hole 13 there wasn't much of a route to the basket so poke and hope. Thankfully this was the only hole where I encountered a fairway that relies on luck.
Hole 15 is an out and back hole.
The course is flat and has natural tee pads. The tee area is in good shape and I didn't notice any root in the way so they didn't bother me at all.
With as much space as they have in the park, it's a shame this isn't a full 18 hole course.
Other Thoughts: While there isn't one hole that stands out as the signature hole, I feel like the course is fairly solid and uses the land fairly well.
Overall this seems like a nice intermediate level course that anyone can play and have fun at. It's not incredibly challenging, but it does take a skilled shot to navigate the trees and get your birdie.
