Tough crowd along the River
Pros: This course has the elevation changes, obstacles, and multiple levels of play that I look for in course design, primarily due to the multiple tee placements. Wind off the river can also add to the skill sets needed for good play. It is compact in design and has short transitions between basket to Tee.
Cons: The short side of this course design is, that it breaks all the rules for good safe play. The short transitions, when done correctly, are always a plus to any course, but here, there are too many examples of where you end up in the field of play from the previous hole, as you transition to the next.
Also, it is a busy multi-purpose park that has to many places in and along the fairways that allow pedestrains and park users to be in danger of good and bad throws. Never a good idea to mix the two. This is also compounded by several Tee and Basket placements that are long blind shots into these busy areas.
I don't recommend play on the weekend.
Other Thoughts: I really like the fact that this course is good for all level of players. Sometimes, designers forget that we are not all pros, and that this is also a family sport. Good job there.
I always find courses with favorite hole designs and in this case it was No.8, even though it had the blind landing area. The use of multi-colored blocks embeded at the base of each basket, directing you in the direction of the next Tees, is something I wish all course designers woud use. I wish this course was in an area that didn't have the casual pedestrain traffic.
It also has good baskets and signs.
