Love or hate it
Pros: Presents a decent challenge. It has a variety of drives. Straight and long. Short accurate uphill. Anhyzers. Small trees big trees thick brush OB, nice elevation on the short wooded holes, and some openess too. Get your birdies and feel good course. The park is scenic and has Duck Creek filling an old quarry running through it. The park is large but most is used for park equipment, picnicing, and a pavilion for receptions and parties. Leaving room for only nine baskets and two sets of tee pads. But it all looks very nice. Sandhill cranes, ducks and different fish can be seen frequently as you play along the river.
Cons: The walking trail. People will surely be in your way once. The signs are messed up by hole 3 and elsewhere. The long walk to 3 is annoying. Its only nine holes you play twice from the different pads to make 18 holes. Worse yet in mid summer they will kick you out well before sunset to "close the park". I'm also not a fan of the pads. They are brick, some are wavy and sunk at the front. Some are pointed in wrong direction and theres a metal edge that sticks up around the pad to trip on.
Other Thoughts: If you don't want to get kicked out playing close to dusk then park by hole 3 on end of park rd. I really like playing here, it is a typical challenge, the birdies are here just gotta keep your head in the game to get them. Here's where I edit myself. Rating 2.5 (gotta get my ratings even across the board) Heres where it gets docked points. Walking trail goes right through middle of course, affects 4 holes directly. Its only nine holes. Signs won't help any first time players. A couple tee pads pointed 25 degrees in wrong direction. Nobody maintains course, basket locations will never change. The county will not let league play happen, its an "organized event" to them and requires signed agreements and proof of insurance. Nobody wants to deal with the county because of their rules. It used to be pay to play..... Its a nice place to play with your friends, diverse challenge and has a clean park atmosphere, the only aspects keeping it from a zero.

Pros: Gorgeous park with a good mix of long, medium, short, wooded and open holes with a nice variety of shots required. The lake comes into play on a few holes if you shank your drive or get a bad kick off a tree.
There are 9 pins and dual tees with the signs numbered 1-18. Some of the holes feel different from the other pad, but most are nearly the same.
The tee pads are quite possibly the largest I've ever seen and made of stepping stones.
There's a good shot variety and mix of hole distances here. A number of holes are short and easy, but holes 10 and 18 on the other hand are quite challenging par 3's.
Cons: The biggest drawback to this course is the walk from hole 2 to hole 3. From hole 2 you walk past hole 4, past hole 3's pin to get to the pad 3. I've had to wait a few times to let walkers go by, but nothing unreasonable.
The wooded holes are extremely short but elevation is in play on all of them. A couple of the tee signs are missing.
A number of the alternate pads are just longer or shorter versions of the hole.
Other Thoughts: It appears they aren't charging to play here anymore. Signage from 29/32 to the park is very good. There are lots of little turns, but they're all marked. Once in the park, you'll want to park close to the bridge on the right.
This is a great course of newer players to develop their game and this course will challenge them to hit their lines and throw straight and turnover shots on some holes. For a more advanced player, this course is fairly easy although there are a few holes that will still challenge you to get a birdie.

Pros: Interesting layout. Scenic park. Concrete tees. Good use of available terrain
Cons: Some holes conflict with walking path. The long walk from #2 to #3.
Other Thoughts: This course has two personalities: wide open/long and wooded/short. There is a walking path that comes into play on a few of the open holes so on a nice, sunny day you're likely to be waiting on people as they stroll along the path. For the most part, the course flows pretty logically except for the walk from #2 basket to #3 tee. Unless you have a map, you will be confused because you either have to walk down a narrow path about 150 yards around the pond or take the walking trail and walk down the fairways of #3 and #4. Then you are forced to throw along the walking path on #3 as that is the only open place to throw. #4 has another route available but the "safe" route forces you down the walking path again. After that, you're heading into the woods where there are no conflicts and some actually fun holes to throw.
There used to be a $2/day fee to play but they have recently done away with that.
