Safari style amongst the pines

Pros: This is a very well manicured park in a smaller town. The course was clean of litter and the grass was mowed and green upon my visit. You most likely will have the course to yourself.
The course uses the land and the trees that are available the best that could be done. Also allows the player to make up their own lines because of the lack of tee pads or markers.
If you like long bomber holes then #6 will be right up your alley.
Cons: There are no tee pads, markers, or distances for this course. The grass tees aren't a big deal but without any markers you are pretty much making up your tees as you go along. Even with the map, it's pretty much guess at an area and throw to the basket.
#8's basket was leaning to the west upon my visit and was not level. Baskets are portable Dga's(which are still very new)but they are staked to the ground. This doesn't affect their catching ability however it's just different.
I wouldn't play here during baseball/softball season as the risk of putting a disc on a ball field could happen on holes #2 and #8 if the wind was out of the correct direction or you had a bad shot.
There really wasn't a signature hole here. I think with some tee markers at the very least it would help move this course up a half a disc for me.
Other Thoughts: I would highly advise printing the map upon your first visit. These observations are based upon the map and what I threw the best I could figure out. Btw I throw rhbh.
1-Slight uphill shot teeing off just north east of the parking lot.
2-teeing off north of #1's basket, anny shot with a tree row that surrounds a baseball field protecting the basket. Basket is just east of the scoreboard.
3-straight ahead shot with no obstacles. North wind could be a factor.
4-hyzer shot shooting north to south. Basket just behind the pines.
5-teeing off from west of #4's basket, another anny shot with basket tucked into the pine tree row.
6-long bombing hole basket is to the west and just before the tree row.
7-go thru the trees behind #6's basket. Another anny shot. There are some trees on the left side of the hole and a long row of trees all the way to the basket along the right side of the hole.
8-teeing off just south of #7's basket, shoots west to east. There are a few trees upon approach to the basket.
9-go thru the tree row behind #8's basket. Straight shot shooting north to south. The only obstacles are the long row of trees on the right hand side.
This is not a must play by any means but if you are in the area go ahead and play here. You will at least have the opportunity to get in some throws. This course is what it is and it is good to see some unused land at least given the opportunity to support another course.
