Pros: Only course in immediate area, There are enough trees to make sure you have to hit your lines.
Cons: Absolutely no elevation change.

Ground was very wet in area. Hole 7 basket was surrounded by water so I couldn't finish the hole. Many other very soft and wet areas that I assume will dry up in the summer months.

Many of the holes play along the road, walking paths, right by a Day Care so one has to be careful of when to throw. However, this is a minor con as the road wasn't extremely busy, nobody was on the walking path, and one would have to have a bad throw to have the Day Care be an issue.

Many of the holes play over each other so if there are more than a couple of groups playing I can see waiting for others to play be an issue.

Need an overall map to help someone new figure out where to start and go next, especially the first three tees.

Most holes are the same general layout and don't make you use every aspect of your game.
Other Thoughts: Overall there was a good use of space for what they had to work with. Would like to see more tree holes. Eliminate one of the first three holes and make another one in the woods which would help the confusion and congestion on holes 1-3.

Pros: Solid distance and a nice--albeit challenging--mix of trees and other obstacles. Some really fun spots to grip and rip. Holes 1-3 are a little tough to get the hang of where the tees are, which hole to throw to, but once you figure out the layout of the holes it makes it much easier. The fourth hole is unreal long. Thankfully there are red tees now, because 987 is just a monster of a hole. Hole 7 is awesome, going straight into the woods with a line for both types of throws rhbh and rhfh, but if it's not almost perfect it's going into the woods.
Cons: It's hard to navigate the first time you play the course. The some of the holes have mini-maps on the tee signs, while others don't have anything. Finding hole 9 was hard because you have to walk down the road parallell with the 5th fairway and look for the tee marker on the right hand side. It goes parallel tees for #1-3 but across the median. The pars are a bit challenging, but with some practice it might get easier.
Other Thoughts: Some course maps would be great.
