Pros:
-good variety.
-nothing too difficult, would be a good beginner course.
-nice tee pads. maybe the biggest I've seen
-a local guy showed me a few holes and gave a bit of helpful advice. a group of 4 let my group of 2 play through.
Cons:
-lack of signage and some navigation issues because of it. without a local telling me where to go I probably would have started on hole 5 and then went from 6 right to 18.
-pretty easy. maybe 2 shots where the basket isn't right in front of you.
-trash all over
-I didn't like something about the atmosphere of the place. can't really put my finger on it but it was just lacking in the "fun factor"
Other Thoughts: I can't really name anything terrible about it but also there is nothing that makes me want to go back. pretty average course.

Pros: A compact course that makes great use of minimal acreage and terrain features. Trees are in play on most holes yet the fairways never feel closed in. Crazy fun doglegs on #10 and #16 and funky leaning trees on #11 and #18, plus the step-up at #3 kept things seriously fun and interesting. Benches are available at almost every tee and the cement tee pads are generously sized and well maintained.
Cons: Nature paths parallel or cross the course at several places and other park users seem to wander through or congregate randomly on the course making avoidance a challenge at times. Even multiple warnings of "Fore" didn't warrant a look up or a meander off the course. Trash is a definite and obvious problem as is high traffic and vandalism. Missing or vandalized tee signs on almost every hole makes negotiation a challenge and many of the baskets were dented or damaged.

Hole #17 is subject to thick, sticky black mud in the fairway during wet periods.
Other Thoughts: Good, permanent tee signs and regular trash pick-up or trash cans at every tee would make this course the bomb for a quickie. Wayward traffic control using some type of "Warning, Flying Discs" signage would be helpful, too.

Just getting to the course from the west side of the state proved challenging, and even trying to follow the posted directions from the east lead to confusion.....advance mapquesting is suggested, as is printing the map and scorecard from here before going.
