Hills and the Creek
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Nice concrete tee-pads
-Nice tee-signs that show the layout of the holes, the different pin positions, and give the distance of the hole.
-Brand new baskets that catch very well
-There is a great amount of elevation change on the course
-The course offers some uphill, downhill, and side-hill shots, which helps vary the course up a little bit.
-There is a creek that could come into play on 3 of the holes.
-Most of the park is well groomed and nice grass, though the last three holes do play through a slightly rougher area
-A couple pin positions add a little distance to the course (Hole 17 long is about 450 feet and the long position on hole 15 is about 360)
-Overall, the course is easy to navigate and it is easy to know which hole is the next one.
Cons: -The course has very few obstacles on it (there are not very many trees in play and the main obstacles on this course is the creek and the elevation changes. Overall, this course is very wide open.
-The area near the creek can be overgrown, and if a disc is thrown near the creek it very well could go missing
-Like the Front 9 (or Spingvale North) most of the shots on this course are straight shots (it would be nice to have some holes that turn right or left).
-The pin positions only add a little bit of distance but don't really change up how the hole plays
-While a few pin positions add a little more distance, overall this course does not have very much distance on it.
-No benches or trashcans on the holes on this side of the park.
-None of the holes are very memorable
-A couple of the holes have a bit of a long walk between them
-This course can get crowded (when we were there there were a lot of groups of 5 or more playing the course.)
Other Thoughts: This course provides a little more challenge than the Springvale North (or the front 9) but it has very few obstacles and none of the holes are very memorable or have much of a wow factor. After all, the course starts to feel a little repetitive. This course is a good stop if you are in the area (make sure to give this one a shot if play Springvale North as this one adds a little more challenge) but don't go out of your way to play it.
