Pros: Hole 17 is beautiful. Paved tees on most holes. Nice park.
Cons: Boring. I mean seriously, this course needs trees. Except for 11 and 17, there are no trees that are factor on any hole. And they're barely a factor on 11. Tee pads are concrete (except on 12, which has grass tees), but are too short. Distance on Hole 9 (by the sign on the course) is simply wrong (a claim of 312 feet for the White Tee to Red Basket is ludicrously off (closer to 156 feet). Other park users are a big factor on holes 2 and 3 (field hockey playing). Shipping pallets are used for the bridge across the stream on 18.
Other Thoughts: It is possible that 10 years from now this will be something other than a wide open course (I note tree seedlings planted on 15.) Outside of a little elevation changes, the only challenge to this course is the length of some of the holes.

Pros: Long Bomb Shots. 3 concrete tees per hole (except #12) and a long and short pin. beautiful park. Hole 17 is a beautiful tunnel shot. this hole is very ace-able. Hole 18 is a great long shot over the pond.
Cons: He who has the biggest arm, wins. There is nothing technical about this course, for the exception of hole 17. I found myself bored after 5 holes. "oh...another wide open shot." I would have rather them save the money from the added concrete pads an actually put in tee-signs, as there were only paper printouts in sleeve protectors. Sometimes the sign was gone altogether, and left you just throwing blind. Wonderful idea, but the wide open design left me yawning.
Other Thoughts: I played on a hot summer day. Bring sunscreen if the sun is out on a cloudless day. water too. there is NO SHADE because the trees are few, and far between. Hole #1 is all the way back the road, to the left parking lot. look for the pond, and a concrete slab. again...no teesigns...no maps. good luck navigating. it's frustrating as hell after the 3rd hole.
