Pros: -Decent tee signs (signs face sideways and do not clearly show which basket you are aiming at)
- Playground for the kids
- baskets in good shape
- Some elevation in play
- good variety in distances for such a small course.
Cons: - no real tee pad, just throw from next to the sign. Baskets should be labeled to prevent shooting at the wrong one.

- some safety issues: 2 throws over the road and parking lot. On hole 3, I had to throw towards my daughter on the playground and was not happy with how close the basket was to the children's play area. 4 was difficult to find and you had to throw over a parking lot once agains.
Other Thoughts: I couldn't find one at first, so I started at 7 then after 9 I was able to see 1 to finish the course.
Relatively open (pics added)
I am sure this course is great for introducing young kids too, it is probably very popular with youth groups, but this is not a course advanced players would seek out.

Pros: Scenic 9 hole course on rolling hills on church property. Holes ranged from 150' to over 400' for a good mix. Mostly open with pretty good basket locations. Very nice tee signs (each include some Bible verse references if you want a mini religious experience before every hole!)

I had the course to myself (Saturday morning).
Cons: Natural tee pads were worn and muddy with many on a the side slope of the hill. No direction on the tee sign or basket for the next tee- made it confusing the first time through. Baskets aren't numbered and this being a fairly open course you can see multiple baskets from many of the tees.

#2 and #3 cross each other and also cross the long paved driveway. #4 tee was the hardest for me to find (it is behind the playground beside the main building). #7 and #9 baskets are practically on top of #8 and #1 tees.
Other Thoughts: This 9 holer is deceptively challenging the first time you play. The hills add some challenge to your drives, putts, and stances. However, after you play it once it should become very easy to any player with moderate experience. (I went from +4 to -1 between my 1st and 2nd rounds.) Many birdie opportunites and a couple of ace runs.

The best parking is in the gravel lot behind the house (church office/rec. center). #1 tee is in front.

As for 9 hole courses go, this is playable, but I would not want to play it more than a couple of times as it would begin to get really easy and boring.

Course Map- #1- in front of house. #2- long anhyzer around telephone pole across road. #3- straight back across road to open area. #4- beside playground and main bldg. down hill. #5 between hill and woods. #6- beside playground, throw across road past #3 basket into little trees. #7- Along driveway towards entrance. #8- uphill to middle of lawn. #9- Along exit driveway back to the house.
