I Love This Little Course
Pros: In the vein of ball golf, this is a grandly wide open layout on which to let them fly. Pros and advanced players may find it dull and boring, but for committed, not so talented recreational or intermediate players, this is a fun course with challenge without heartbreak. There is variety in lengths, elevations and foliage.
Cons: The dirt tees can be and are often mud. There are spots on every hole where a second tee position (mostly shorter) could easily and cheaply be installed, as the tees consist only of small boards spiked into the ground.
The tee and especially the basket on #3 are precariously close to the sidewalk, though not technically a design flaw. Tee(s) should be moved back and to the right and the basket should be moved back 80 to 100 feet to that wide open area to the right of the playground. That would make for a legitimate par 4 and shorten the walk to the next tee. The intended windows on holes 5 and 9 are obscured by leaning trees and branches that should be removed. #6's basket should be moved to the left to get it out of the rocks and away from 7's fairway. #8's tee should be moved up a few feet to the base of the little hill to get it out of the road.
With those corrections, especially the installation of some sort of real tees, even if they are just gravel or mulch, to eliminate the mud problem, I'd re-rate this fine nine higher.
Other Thoughts: If you've played here lately and wondered about the newly installed signs throughout the park warning of animals, they were hurriedly put up after my playing partner was attacked by a rabid fox at the #1 tee area.

A quick round
Pros: New park, great amenities (bathrooms, water). New baskets. Straight forward course, fairly easy to follow. All holes are potential birdies for experienced players, with most being straight shots off of the tee pad. I had the park all to myself at noon during the week, which made for a quick 18 holes.
Cons: New park....soccer fields and walking trail could be annoying if they are in use. Some of the tee box signs seem to be a bit off in distance. You have you to backtrack from hole #4 to Teebox #5. Teebox #7 is uneven. Long weeds and shin-high brush between teepad and many of the baskets.
Other Thoughts: In about twenty years when the small, newly planted trees mature a bit, it may provide for more of a challenge. As it plays right now, an experienced player can go out and shoot -5 to -7 in their first round.

Work in progress
Pros: This is another course in Guilford County
Located near local elementary school and designed for a beginner
Some longer holes offer nice practice areas
New park with walking trial that travels along the course
Cons: The course was designed prior to finalization of park, therefore some holes and pads are in weird places, tee pads are going to be improved
Other Thoughts: There are plans to move a few baskets into different areas, tee pads are going to be improved and 9 more holes could be in the near future, volunteers are always needed, as I live 3 miles from there and try to work on the course when I can. Definitely a work in progress, but will get better (I made/planned many of the improvements at Reidsville's Lake's Edge course)
