Great little 9 hole course
Pros: New baskets
New tee signs
new tee pads
Great fairway selection
Great variety of distances and shots.
Only 9 holes, but the tee signs are marked for 18 holes when you play all tees.
Cons: long walk from #2 to #3, but it is marked well (look for signs on the trees)
Other Thoughts: This course was a surprise, I was not expecting much and enjoyed my round on 18 instead of 9 holes. (playing both sets of tee's)
However if you play the holes in order 1-18, you better make all your birdies in the first 9, there are only a few birdie shots on the back 9.

1 day could be great
Pros: 2 sets of Tees per hole and like Hindman, there are so many trees it is bound to offer a dif shot to shape. Distance variety as well with the hole average being around 340 or so. No wind because it's so wooded. The longs were pretty challenging to me as were some of the shorts. No throw and pray shots from the Tee pad, but on the second shot there might be. There are still more trees marked for chopping so it's a work in progress. It seems that work is being done weekly so it will only get better. There appears to be land for more holes if everything I saw was park land/property. Nice pin placements and most holes and it has enough distance to be considered a modern course, especially for heavily wooded.
Cons: Stumps and sticks, but this was cut out of a very dense area of trees. This isn't like being in the woods totally. You are in a city park that has a lot of trees, but it still has it's moments of seclusion and serenity. Tee pads will be impossible to use after heavy rains. Hole 4 is a long open 400-500 ft. shot that runs along power lines with the basket hidden on the left between a few trees. It is basically a filler hole, but at least the cannon arms can let it fly on 1 of the holes.
Other Thoughts: This course will improve as it is used and as work continues to be done. Thanks to all of the people that have put in hours making it traveler ready. There is not 1 crappy course in Little Rock, they all rock.

What a Layout!
Pros: -Great layout, makes you really have to think about your shot.
-18 unique holes. The teesigns are numbered 1-18.
-Some holes are short from both teepads, and some are long, especially from the long teepads.
-Concrete tees for each teepad!
Cons: -There is a bit of a walk from 2 basket to 3 tee. Its not really long, just longer than the walk between the other holes in the park.
Other Thoughts: ***Edit 10-31-10
Concrete teepads have been poured on all of the holes, and on both the long and short tees.***
-There are 2 sets of tees at each hole, one short and one long.
-There are 9 baskets, but two different teepads per hole that make it pretty much 18 unique holes. The signs reflect this as the shorter pad for each hole is numbered as the front 9 and the longer pad is numbered as the back 9.
-If you don't have a big arm, the long teepads will kick your butt on some of the longer holes. There are also some holes that are still short from the long teepads, so it makes for some fun golf.
-Even though it is getting better, I still wouldn't be caught alone in this park. Sketchy to say the least.
-A lot of clearing of land had to be done to get the course in place. This means that there is hardly any consistent undergrowth off the fairways. The worst you will likely be punished for missing a fairway is that you won't have a defined path to the basket. There will be trees in your way, but nothing other than that on most holes.
-You will most likely use every shot in your arsenal. I think this is a good course.
