Good course that plays around a well maintained city lake
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This course has both short and long holes and plays around a nice little city lake. The course grounds were well maintained and the tees and baskets are in great shape. There are some short aceable holes as well as a couple of up hill shots and one downhill shot as well. Here are my observations of the holes:
1-throws over a part of the lake, it was dry when I was there, with the lake to your left
2-shoots South to North
3-is a short aceable hole that shoots back towards the parking lot
4-makes you shoot thru the stage/gazebo(this is also a con)
5- is a pretty straight ahead hole
6-throws over the neck of the lake and is a short hole as well
7-shoots up hill toward the nursing home
8-has trees on your right and doglegs right, it slopes downhill so a roll away is possible here
9-is a straight shot with trees sprinkled in
10-was another up hill shot
11-was the only downhill shot
12-has a protected pin and was short
13-shoots over the road and the basket sits below your feet
14-17 vary in length with 17 being the longest. The lake is to your left on these 4 holes.
18-finishes up with another throw over the water and offers a good sized landing area.
Cons: Many of the holes shoot across the walking paths that surround the lake. Please watch out and don't hit someone. Also the road comes into play in a couple of spots so again pay attention.
Wind could be a factor here because the holes around the lake are pretty much wide open. There are no tee signs and this knocks this course down a bit for me. It would be nice to know how far the holes are before teeing off and where the next tee is at as well.
The walk from the parking lot to Hole 1's tee pad is lengthy and as stated by a previous reviewer has you throwing back towards the parking lot. Speaking of long walks, the walk from Hole 18's basket back to your car is very lengthy.
I have no idea what the concept behind hole 4 was. You must throw around a stage/gazebo that is behind a basketball court. This is a major concern if there were other park users in this area. The basket is right behind the stage/gazebo(see pics) and its either go through it or around it. A bit of a head scratcher that is for sure.
Other Thoughts: This course uses the land that is available to the best that can be done. It really uses the lake on several holes. If you add in the wind then the challenge will be greater. Not a technical course by any means but there are some obstacles to throw around. It not just bombs away with the lake being the only hazard. I too would like to see something offered after hole 18. It is just too long of a walk and I think with a little tweak somewhere it would help a bit.
If you were in the area then you should stop and play this course, however its not a course that is a destination type of a course. It will provide you with a decent challenge. I liked what this course had to offer as an advanced/intermediate caliber player. If they were to add tee signs and take out some of the long walks between the start and the end of the course then I would bump up my rating.
