Buckeye - I'm Impressed
7 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: 3'x8' cement tees on every hole (except hole 9 where the tee is 5'x10' cement!). Sign posts next to every hole; some with hole number and hole layout written in sharpie on them (signs coming soon?). Moderately to heavily wooded. Nice metal tone poles (make a nice 'ding' when you hit them). Well worn in trails guiding you from basket to tee. Easy to navigate; no map needed, even without signs. Several decent distance holes. Pretty technical on most holes requiring shot shaping and different shot types. Course does not favor any one throwing style. Hole 10: nice 300' shot over a ravine. Very nice course design. No holes are too close to one another. Rough is unforgiving. Very friendly locals. Several ace runs, but tight lines are required. Benches next to most holes.
Cons: No signs. No map (although not really needed). Only minimal elevation change throughout the course, with the exception of hole 10. Some random blankets and pillows in a couple spots on the course; looks like homeless people sleep there. Holes 14-17 are pretty repetitive: shorter straight shots shooting to a protected basket.
Other Thoughts: This is a very fun 18. Fairly challenging with a good mix of distance and technical shots. The tone poles may be a little too wide in diameter. I had a couple shots hit in the zone but I don't think they would have stayed in a basket. The course seems to be progressing and I hope it does. With baskets and signs alone it would be a 3.5 in my book; with a few alternate pin positions and some tweaks here and there it might even be a 4. I will be back, and I would highly recommend it to any intermediate/advance player.
