Pros: Multiple large and clean pads
Some wonderful landscaping on many of the holes
Very challenging, all kinds of creativity needed here!
Met some really wonderful people on the course.
Cons: The course is mostly marsh land. My wife who played the course with me wanted to leave three holes in because of the bugs and mud.
Very challenging holes, even from the easier pads. Felt that many of my drives required luck rather than skill.
Unless your drives are in the fairway you are in for a good search for your disk! Hiking boots needed!
Other Thoughts: I love to travel and try out new courses. If I played this course more I bet I would like it more. I really wanted to love the course as you can tell some serious time and dedication went into it but the course is a difficult play for someone passing through or who is not a highly skilled player. After playing the course I left frustrated, muddy and full of bug bites and yes, a unhappy wife.
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: The redesign of O'hauser will excite some and upset others. Some excellent, challenging holes have been added: 3 Blue Tee, 5 Gold Tee, 6 Gold, 9 Blue/Gold, 12 Gold, 15 Gold. Multiple pin placements is a plus. Legitimate par 4's and 5 depending on the pin positions. Update 8/26: New green on hole nine creates a great, straight drive to the pin from the blue and gold. New fairway on hole 16 gives a good risk/reward from the gold and blue tees.
Cons: Lots of righting anyhyzers off of the tee.(1, 3gold, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18) Doesn't make them bad, but I throw the same disc on many of these drives. Some Gold tees very hard.(1, 3, 10, 11, 14, 16) Missing long, tight driving hole that doesn't require some type of turn or slide. Seems like most tee shot needs to angle off the tee or late during the drive to find the landing spot. Blind holes due to desire to make the shots harder. (1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18)
Other Thoughts: Course needs a lot of play to break in the new holes. Penalty for missing fairway is extreme, but it will get easier. Some holes stand alone as great holes. Longer pin positions will make some holes legitimate par 4 or par 5. (1, 3, 5, 10, 11, 12) I don't think this course makes a good first impression but it will grow on people as they play it more. Rating for just pros would be a 4, but because it is so hard for any other skill level, I lowered it to a 3. Update 8/26: Course is setup with pins in many of the longer positions. Definitely a huge challenge
