Pros: - Course is set on a small piece of property on the grounds of a large private company. I could see possible interference with employees strolling the grounds, but that's about it.
- Some interesting features here, there is a large number of trees, and the ground is full of rolling hills. #1 and #2 play by a long valley with woods on one side, holes #6-#9 play over the rolling terrain with plenty of hills, and #3-#5 play next to some thick rough.
- Decent mix of shots; #4 and #5 are hyzers around/into the woods, #6 is a spike hyzer around some big pines, #7 is a straight shot, almost a tunnel, over some hills, #8 is a LHBH hyzer, and #9 is a downhill hyzer. Definitely plenty of places to get snagged by the trees.
- Tricky basket placements; #4 is by the woods, #5 is through a gap in the woods, #7 is under some trees on a slope, and #3/#9 is under a tree between to small hills. #1 and #2 are also on the sloping ends of the valley.
- Great baskets, teepads for half of the holes are tiny and almost useless. No signage, navigation can be a bear. Good luck!
Cons: - The biggest con, as of right now, is the lack of any designated tee areas for the first four holes. Where to start the course is a mystery to me, maybe shoot from #2 to #1, then back from #1 to #2? I am very curious what the 'locals' do.
- Layout is pretty jacked up, a lot of crossing/abutting fairways, baskets next to teepads, teepads next to teepads. Thankfully, the course must be mostly deserted.
Other Thoughts: - A lot of good parts to the course, there are fun holes, interesting holes, long holes, good basket placements, minor elevation changes. There are also a lot of bad parts, like mystery navigation and some overlapping. Not sure if the lack of tees is on purpose, to discourage outside players from coming, it is effective! A beginner/intermediate level course, but patience is necessary.

Pros: -Very well keep
-Nice scenery
-Would be a good practice course if it was close for you
Cons: -It's technically private property
-Apparently hired survellance persons circle by occasionally and run people off
-Course layout it odd
-No signs or teepad but the basket are numbered
-I wasn't able to find all of the baskets
Other Thoughts: I went for the first time last saturday and had walked through looking for all the baskets and I had just finished playing hole 2 when a lady-rent-a-cop drove by and told me to leave because it was private property. I didn't argue and walked away but even though I knew it was private property (from this site) I never saw a sign so I may go back in a few weeks and play stupid if someone stops me again

Also, it would seem that the cop would ask everyone on the course if they worked at Molex this would get really annoying if you really did work there and this course seems like a waste, I mean how many people at Molex actually play.
