Pros: Plenty of parking and good signs for this course. I like the distance on most holes, especially #4! Hole #1 is guarded by many trees making it more difficult than it looks. I liked the 3rd hole as you can't see the basket until after you tee off and walk around the clump of trees on the left side of the this fairway. #4 is a good measure of how far you can throw. #5 was difficult to see from the tee. #7 has the tightest fairway, though I've seen plenty tighter. #9 will be more difficult as the newly planted trees grow bigger in coming years. Pretty good use of space and terrain overall. A nice change of pace from Krape Park which is nearby.
UPDATE: There are now 18 holes! Hole 10 is a bomb that'll run toward the left. Hole 11 is another bomb throw towards the trees by the baseball field you can see on your right. Hole 12 is through a clump of 10 trees with the basket guarded by tree 11 and tree 12. Hole 13 is a bomb throw slightly downhill towards the road in the gully. After finishing hole 13 continue on over the road where you'll find the tee sign for 14 which is behind the first 4' diameter tree, the 4th tree in the line from the tee. There is another 4' diameter tree just behind the basket. The 15th tee continues straight on past the basket as if you are heading to the college building from the 14th tee. Hole 15 is a bomb toward the road you came across from basket 13. Hole 16 is across the road. You'll see hole 16 and the basket on your right as you cross the road. Look toward you left and you'll see the 17th tee on your left. The basket for hole 16 is behind the willow tree. Finish 16 and go back away from where hole 1 lies. From the 17th tee you'll see the basket a good bomb throw away under a tree. Hole 18 is a little bomb throw protected by another lovely tree. Given the layout of the land, the design makes good use of the land and trees.
Cons: Hole #6 and #8 are too short, I played this course twice and birdied #8 the first time and birdied #6 the second time I played, shot par the other times. Hopefully alternate basket positions will be made for these in the future.
Other Thoughts: Go to the left after playing each hole, except #9, which you follow the pond to the right. This was confusing after finishing #7 and I found the 8th basket before finding the 8th tee behind the row of pine trees by the basket of hole 7.
