Pros: The course is another that is wide open and reminds one of a ball golf course. Holes 14 and 18 are signature holes to me, among the few that offer any real technical challenge.
Cons: The entire course is a con. The first 3 holes are virtually the same distance and absolutely straight. Holes 6-8 are also in the same distance range and are absolutely straight. Most of the holes on the course are in the same distance range, and the shorter holes are far too easy. What little vegetation there is is not used to its full advantage.

The designer also clearly wanted us to gasp with awe at the 820 foot downhill 17th, but the hole is just a boring exercise in bogie for most players (bombers might get a 3, and 300 foot throwers with get a 4 or a 5).

It's simply not a very interesting course and the only challenge is distance.

Pros: It's on a well mowed hill with some trees, all concrete pads and flows fairly well. A lot of 300 foot holes. Not a lot to be said about the play here... A smooth rolling hill with some trees sums this course up very well. You aren't missing much if you pass on this.
Cons: Easy and mostly open course that gets busy on nice days. Local rec players flock to this course.
