Pros: Nice new course that offers some variety from the other courses in the area. This is definitely a course with a big arm can lower your score but when the wind picks up it can abuse everyone.
This course makes great use of the elevation changes (and there are many!) as well as using the available trees as much as possible. Winding walking paths through the park add for addition OB issues that keep this from being strictly a how far can you throw course. Holes 4-6 have some great over valley, around trees, through trees shots that show great use of the available area. #8 is a very tight 370' uphill hole with OB on both sides the entire way that will offer a crazy scoring spread.
Cons: Much more open than I usually enjoy and the wind can be a HUGE issue on almost every hole. They have tried to use the available tree and I think this will mature into an even better course once the trees grow and mature.

Hole #7 causes me some concern with the proposed addition of a man-made lake in the middle of it. The current pin placement is in what would be the drainage area of the lake and even though it's downhill you will need almost 400' to clear the water. This could become a frustrating issue with many players because of lost discs.

The layout of the hole 9-11 area confuses me. You tee off on #9 throwing downhill, after finishing the hole(300+) you walk back up the hill to a teepad near the #9 pad and throw around the hill. These are not bad holes but I think something could possibly have been done to help the flow here.
Other Thoughts: WIND, WIND and more WIND!!! Can't emphasize enough how much wind affects this course with all the close OB and baskets on slopes. A solid wind game and careful disc/slot selection is crucial.

Good course that will get better as trees mature. The guys that put this in really want to deliver a quality course and I think improvements will be seen over time.
