Under Rated Now That It's 18 Holes.
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The course is very well laid out, uses the elevation and slope to great effect, has some exceptionally well protected greens, and is much more challenging than it would seem (though the wind was gusting over 40 MPH the day I played). Tee pads are long and baskets are very good quality.
There is a small drainage creek that runs through the park, which is in play on several holes.
Cons: There is only one set of tees and they are effectively the pro tees, as this course is very long (and plays longer). There are only 7 holes under 300' and several of those holes are close to 300' (4 of those are 265-285 and 2 play slightly downhill, while the other two play relatively flat). The 3 shortest holes--and only one is under 255--all play uphill to the degree that they play 30 feet longer than listed.
I'd suggest adding some am tees (and a couple holes should add pro tees, while 4, 6, 8, 9, 16, 17, 18 remain unchanged).
Holes 1-3 should have some tee 40' shorter on each.
Hole 5 should add a pro tee at the top of the hill to utilize the tree line (it really isn't in play from the other tee).
Hole 7 should have an am 50-70' shorter and left.
Hole 10 should place a tee down under the tree with the overhang in the way (slightly longer and also visible from the previous green, as the current tee sign is blocked from view by the tree).
Hole 11 needs a tee 75-100' shorter.
Hole 13 needs a placement 120' shorter and on the right side of the creek.
Hole 14 needs a placement 100' shorter and to the right of the bridge that must be crossed (with the same trees in play as from the longer tee).
Hole 15 needs a tee 75' shorter, in front of the tree line.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful multi use park that seems to have great amenities (though it's early in the season and the bathrooms were closed).

Pros: -The addition of 9 new holes in 2015 along with the changes made to the original 9 have made this course much more demanding and more enjoyable.
-Many of the holes require shot shaping or a low canopy throw and the creek comes into play on several holes.
-A good combination of both longer and shorter technical holes with 2 legitimate par 4's.
Cons: -The current tees are AM tees. Pro tees and/or alternate pin placements need to be added to make this course a tournament worthy location for higher level players.
Other Thoughts: If you have not played this course since the new holes and tee pads have been added, I urge you to do so I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Pros: -Beautiful course.
-Decent elevation change for a multi-use park.
-Baskets are new, double chains.
-Requires a wide variety of shots if you want birdies.
-Grass tees are in good condition.
-Local community is very friendly.
Cons: -Not a fan of grass teens.
-Instead of brown tee markers (the color of the tree trunks are everywhere) lets see signs with distances.
-Some baskets are 30' away from benches and walking paths.
Other Thoughts: -I loved this course. It is new, it is clean, and hopefully it stays that way. The shots have a great variety. Annys, hyzers, tunnels, and even a roller hole. The roller could be a huge, high hyzer though. The marking posts threw me off, but after playing once navigation was easy. Final note, if this course gets turned into an 18 hole course with concrete teepads and signs it would be one of the top courses around.
-If you enter the GPS latitude/longitude into your GPS please be advised, the numbers are off. It will take you to a gas company, lol. Use the intersection instead.

Pros: Well this course is brand new its baskets are very nice with some good elevation change. Not a lot of trees but enough to get in the way. It is located in a very nice clean park with plenty of other attractions but none come in to play.
Cons: Grass tees get muddy and slippery. No distances on the sign's.
Other Thoughts: We just put this course in. And it is a good 9 hole course and if it is rely popular we mite get 18 next year. So get out here and play this course.
