Phase 1: Nice Mix
Pros: The directions to the course and the 1st tee are perfect. •DGA Targets •Scorecard with map in the mailbox,next to #1 tee •Easy navigation •Generous Scorecard course pars,nice for beginners so they don't get frustrated •Nice mix of, Not only of distance,but Open Fields and woods. #1 is a 382' open drive throwing to the tree line. The basket sits between the paved trail & tree line. With only a 5/6' diameter of cleared underbrush. #2 is a 202' Anhyzer drive/ace run. The target is "behind" a large electrical tower. With VERY thick & tall grass around half if the target. Into the woods for #3,4,5. Walk back to the paved trail,you'll see a mulched path going into the woods. The mulched/dirt path in the woods are used for fairways. For #3 tee marker turn left, a 150' short technical hole,with a dogleg fairway. #4 a straight shorter 142' technical hole. #5 a longer 260' hole with the most defined fairway, but does get much tighter around the target. Out of the woods for #6,7,8,9. Tee #6 from the paved trail,A wide open 485' drive north to the end of the tree line. the target just on the other side of the tree line. #7 from the trail Another wide open drive,this time a 540'.#8 a average 283' hole. With a mandatory? Side arm drive,with a "elevated" putt? #9 An open 245' "Elavated" tee.
Cons: No tee sgns, yet? But, if you use the map on the Scorecard all is good. The said tee pads are more markers than pad. Target #1 should be,atleast cleared out another 10'. IMHO it should be moved into the woods about 25'....mix it up bit more. #8 tee marker is set to the right, making a mandatory? side arm drive. It's only 10' behind two massive pine trees. A few trimmed branches would be good. The #8 target is more behind the mound than on top. IMHO it needs to be moved. It would be a nice elevated putt if it was on top and on the back edge of the mound.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a well thought out layout. The Paved Trail wasn't a negative. Well used for tee pads and when it did come into play there were no "blind shots". From I-465 & Hwy 37 it took me 20 minutes to get to the course. One round can be played in 30 minutes or less. I was hard for me to rate this course a 2.5 decent/typical. Because of the good mix,for a 9 holer, of distance/open/wooded. But with no water and very little terrain changes, as of now I'll rate it a 2.5. I'm sure that will change after the other 9 will be installed.
