Pros: This course is located in a very nice area and a very well kept park. It has a few scattered trees and slightly rolling hills. After you enter the parking lot head to the southwest corner. Don't confuse #3's tee pad with #1. #1's tee pad is just north of the brown shed and plays west. #3's tee is directly behind the shed and plays south.

Brand new Innova baskets.

Large and level to the ground cement tee pads.

Easy to navigate. Friendly beginner course.
Cons: There are no tee signs or numbers on the tees.

The tees have new dirt laid around them. Once grass takes they will be very nice. Until then it's going to be super muddy. Every tee has fresh dirt around them.

It's pretty wide open with very few obstacles.

I felt the slightly rolling hillsides could have been used to make a few greens more interesting.
Other Thoughts: It will be interesting to see if the neighbors have a problem with this course and if it lasts. There are some super nice expensive houses that line the course.

This course sits just minutes off I355. If you get caught is traffic this isn't a bad place to stop for a while. There is a nice miniature golf course in the park as well.

Pros: - Course is set in a smallish section of this park, pretty much clear of everything but a few houses on one side. General park-goers could wander into the fairways, otherwise no conflicts.
- There are some holes with decent elevation change due to some hilly spots. A few downhill drives/elevated teepads, sloped fairways, and a blind shot around/over a hill. Some of the greens have a little rollaway potential, but nothing too extreme.
- Not that many trees at the course, but a few holes make good use of tall, bushy pines. #2's basket has lots of schule in front and a pine tree behind, forcing a wide RHBH anny or a tight RHBH hyzer. #3 also forces a right curve to get around a bunch of pines.
- A good amount of LHBH friendly shots help to keep the course interesting, to balance out some of the wide open shots to be found.
- Good baskets, good teepads (though #1's is pointed in the wrong direction). No signage as of now, and the baskets aren't numbered; but the worst that could happen is playing them out of order.
Cons: - Almost half of the holes have little to no obstacles, so it's a simple grip and rip with little thought.
- A few holes are pretty close to each other, if the course is busy keep an eye out.
Other Thoughts: - Hole lengths here are all pretty similar, anyone throwing at or over 300' will probably get bored after a round or two. But, that also means there aren't too many ace runs or gimmees. Really depends on the person on whether that is a good or bad thing.
- Great course for beginners to learn on, with good length, different lines, and elevation changes. For more experienced players, a great place to practice.
