Rugged and Fun
Pros: The layout utilizes the existing terrain; topography, vegetation, and general ambiance to make a super fun course full of different looking shots. No two consecutive holes match up in terms of looks, distance, elevation change or shot style. This keeps the flow fresh and interesting. Starting from hole one the surprises start off with the ~20 foot shear drop off immediately behind the basket into a red sand gulley. Each shot off the tee provides for a little something different. Distance-control off the tee is prized much more than old fashion distance. No hole lets you just open up the big guns without some control. Otherwise you'd be searching and wondering why you did that in the first place. The fairways are fair and balanced; some tight with a dash of luck required and others more open to allow for some shot movement. The greens give a chance of a roll away on most with some hidden slopes behind the baskets if you're not careful. On some of the more spread out treks between holes there are navigation signs which is nice and helpful.
Cons: As noted by others the grass can tend to get long in areas though I didn't see this as being much of an issue. With the tee signs only indicating the hole number with no distances, tee designation, or visual representation they didn't really do anything. On multiple occasions I had to walk one-half to two-thirds the hole length to get a visual on the basket. This could be eradicated with better tee signs. Luckily my phone was not dead and I could look up the course map on here. I'd recommend that to anyone playing it both blind and solo. A course map near number one would help this situation too. The tees are all natural with two or three being carpet and my only complaint is that some are not level and/or loose footing.
Other Thoughts: This was a tremendously fun course that provides a good shot variety in a pretty secluded area of the park. Even though this isn't the hardest course it does provide some challenge, especially on the back nine. Being off your lines on the front nine where a lot of birdies are waiting will leave you ruing the chances. Players of all skill level will have a good time here. Advanced and pros should be able to shoot under par without too much worry while intermediates and below can manage a few birdies and do well to keep out of trouble.

Full 18 now
Pros: - Very good baskets (mixed Mach's with Innova's).
- Each holes has tee signs indicating the tees
- Multiple tees are present on many of the holes. The primary tees are marked with blue rocks; alternate tees marked with pink rocks.
- Very unique terrain for the area.
- Good variety of shot types and hole types.
- Lots of elevation changes.
- There has never been a crowd, so you can play very quickly and without being rushed.
- Benches at many of the holes.
Cons: - Natural tees.
- Course has a tendency to get a bit overgrown in the summer. Holes 11, 14, & 15 are the most troublesome and your disc can be hard to find in the fairway.
- Some drainage issues during the really wet times of the year. This affects holes 4, 5, & 6 the most.
Other Thoughts: The red sand canyon is very interesting(holes 1 and 3).
Elevation is in play on many of the holes. Some hole tee low and go to a higher basket; while others go from high to low. The hanging basket on hole 6 is unique and cool.
The large field in the middle is mowed infrequently, so the grass seeds will sticking to your legs/pants. In general, the course is maintained pretty good. The high grass as well as some briars on the borders of some fairways are a negative.
I recommend this course to anyone in the area. Now the course is a full 18, and it's really exciting.
There are restrooms near the course.
