A big improvement over the old layout
Pros: Great use of trees and basket placement .
Long wooded holes that require good shot placement over bombing it .
Hole six is so beautiful ,the tee shot is though pines and require a low control shot and good placement ,the hole is 598' so you have to mentally plan every shot to score well on this hole .
There's also two sets of tees for each hole ,as for now the second set are only stakes in the ground painted orange we plan on putting a tee for them when we can ,the pro tees play much tougher than the short play much longer and makes every hole a little different from the short tees
All the holes are away from the soccer fields and walking paths and have well placed mandos to keep disc out of these areas .
a few holes have a great risk reward to them ,like 5 it's a short 198' hole and has o.b 50 feet behind it ,so if you run at it to aggressively you risk o.b
Every hole is well thought out and you can tell the designers put a lot of time in the placements .
Cons: some fairways and a really close and if you have a bad drive you may land into another fairway .
only natural tee's for now ,the park board plans on cement tees after we convert to 18 in the spring and when the funding permits .
It's only nine holes till spring 2011
Other Thoughts: Great course and soon to be better as soon as it gets nine more holes .
Improved in everywhere it will challenge the novice that plays by the pars which were set so the course isn't overly hard ,are the seasoned player who's been playing for years

The New 9 !!
4 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: The new design of this course puts a brand new feel to a familiar park. I had the pleasure of playing it for the first time with the two designers of the new layout. The course flows extremely well through park staying away from the soccer fields and walk way for the most part. A better use of all the natural obstacles was WELL planed. The challenge level just went way up on this new course ! With pro and am. tees,,it seems all the right things went in to this plan: (big arms, finesse, and a very good short game) and out came one of the better local courses by far !
Cons: The tee boxes are just marks beside the posts on the dirt.... for now.
Other Thoughts: If it has been a while since you have hucked a round at this park or perhaps have even given up on playing it..well well LOOK again !! The new layout is AMAZING, and with the future looking real positive for a back nine here...This place is only going to get better !!...A new favorite course on the local scene !! Thanx !!
