Okay object course
7 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -maps with scorecard provided in the mailbox next to hole 1 (near the building entrance)
-all object targets are marked with a flag, nearly all visible from the tee
i didn't check but other reviewers claim the building has free disc rentals and a nice restroom.
Cons: -no baskets, object course
-little creativity or challenge in most of the holes, few obstacles other than people using the park
-tons of safety hazards: many, if not most, of the holes play over the soccer fields, baseball diamond, and playground. high probability of pedestrian interference.
-a few flags are difficult to see from the tee, particularly holes 5 and 10 (light pole and end of chain-linked fence, respectively)
-tons of bugs: mosquitos, ants, fire ants
Other Thoughts: It is nice to have this little object course right on the Isle of Palms. With all the tourists and vacationers in the area, it is convenient to be able to catch a round or at least do some field practice without having to drive to the other side of Charleston.
That said, this is not much of a course. Most of the holes are very short. Few of them offer any obstacles. If there are people using the other park facilities you may have to skip some holes. Object targets means easy putting and low scores so it's a good place to bring beginners. Advanced players will be bored to death here.
Bottom line is that this place is for the casual player on vacation on the island or the course bagger. If you have a chance to get around Charleston and play some real golf, head to Trophy Lakes on John's Island (west of the city) for a real gem of a course.

18 Hole Family Fun!!!
Pros: *The course is really well maintained.
*The course is very easy to navigate.
*You can borrow disc from the main office for free.
*The course has nearby restrooms and playground for the kids.
*The hole over the soccor field is around 450ft, offering a decent challenge.
Cons: *NO BASKETS........this course uses trees with flags on them. To hole out, you must shoot at tree trunks.
*There is no challenge for an advanced player, some holes are as small as 80ft.
Other Thoughts: Although there are NO BASKETS, they use trees. I still found this to be a nice place to practice my drives. The soccer field was completely empty when I played, therefore I used that space to work on my distance drives.
