Pros:
On same site as two other 18=hole courses, all sharing a common tee-1 and tee-18 area. Colour-coded baskets and natural flow made the course easy to navigate. Tee areas containing all the essentials - flat, concrete teepads, signs, benches, trash receptacles. The first few holes are very nicely presented, surrounded by red-tinted mulch and an outer rim of large stones.
Cons:
Baskets and/or fairways of holes 9-13 play extremely close/over a clear, but wide, deep, and fast-moving stream. Holes at the bottom of the ridge leading to the stream extremely wet.
Other Thoughts:
Fairly open and long at the start, then 1100', open-practically-the-entire-way #5 takes you to the edge of the trees/ridge, while gently-descending 777' #7 leads you down the ridge along a tree-defined path to the stream. After enjoying/suffering the water holes, there are a couple of holes that play through the trees at the bottom of the ridge, then #16 takes you straight up, regaining most of the elevation, with sharp left-turning start-in-woods-end-in-open #17 gaining the remainder.

Favourite hole: #6. A sweeping right-turner, staring open, entering an initially broad but then narrowing arc into the woods, with a small left needed to reach the basket guarded by scattered trees in front.

Least favourite hole: #12. Basket sits on the edge of the bank of the stream, with shule directly behind it.

The complex is still a work in progress - trees were being cut-n-cleared the day I was playing. While mulch and wood chips have been laid down in many areas, much more needs to be placed on the damp areas near/at the bottom of the ridge. Certainly worth a visit, and $10 to play the three courses all day seems reasonable.

Your attitude towards water and potential disc loss will greatly affect your opinion of this course, as it potentially comes into play on nearly 1/3rd of the holes.
