Pros: The land is fairly flat and open. This is a heavily used and well kept multi use park. There are scattered trees throughout. Several of the baskets are located on the side of berms. A couple tees are slightly elevated too.

There is a practice basket near hole #1.

The baskets are orange Mach 5's & sweet looking! Each basket has the DGA flags on top marking 5, 10, & 15 mph wind.

Tee signs are pretty good and indicate OB on this course. Course map near hole #1.

The course has a variety of distances. I threw my putter, mids, fairway, and long range drvier. It's beginner friendly but has some longer holes that experienced players will like.

There are wood chip walkways leading to the next hole on a few of them.

There were next tee signs and out of bounds signs on the course.

Hole #3 is a really nice hole.

Hole #7 has 2 tees.
Cons: The biggest con are the tee pads. The wood chips are very soft and hard to throw from.

Being a right hand back hand player I threw mostly flat shots and hyzers. There are no shot shaping to the right.
Other Thoughts: Besides not having concrete tee pads this park district got the job done right. I thought the course maximized the potential of the land avaliable.

Pros: - Course is set on the outskirts of a dog park and some soccer fields, with a walking path present on many holes. Might be some stray pedestrians, but the design keeps it clear from most interference.
- First three holes have a good amount of trees to avoid. #1's fairway is littered with saplings, #2 has a tight hyzer through a bunch of trees with thick rough, and #3 is a tunnel with lots of little trees on both sides. Some line shaping needed to avoid the trees; especially once they grow up a little. #4 has a gap to hit off the tee, and #6 forces a RHBH hyzer. Remainder of the holes are more out in the open, with lots of room to maneuver. More rough is present, though, especially near the baskets, to make things interesting. OB in spots also help to add challenge.
- Decent amount of elevation changes here, with some gently downsloping fairways on #1 and #2, an elevated teepad on #4, #7, and #9, and elevated greens on #7 and #8. Helps to add some fun and challenge to each holes, which would otherwise be pretty simple.
- Good variety in hole length; with a few around 200', and a few over 350'. Almost all players will be throwing putters and drivers throughout, which helps to mix things up. #8 plays even longer thanks to the elevated green.
- Good temporary signs, great baskets, mushy tees are a work in progress. Naviation is easy thanks to a map and informative signs.
Cons: - A lot of the shots are are more or less wide open, with some rough being the only obstacle/challenge. The back half is pretty much a test of distance, and not much else.
- Definitely favors the RHBH player, with only a few shots that are blocked. The trees to the right of the tee on #4 and #9 are the only real obstacles to a RHBH hyzer.
- Teepads are in very rough shape right now, hopefully the woodchips will compact down a bit to provide some better footing.
Other Thoughts: - Overall, the course has pretty good variety, with a few wooded shots, some fun elevation changes, and length for almost everyone. Some extremely thick rough might be a bit much for beginners, and it's a little straightforward for advanced players, except for driving practice.
