-Blue Lake has excellent signage, they're well built and look great.
-Every hole has a bench at the tee which is nice since it's such a long course.
-There is pretty nice kiosk with a map of the course including all the pars and distances.
-The OB is marked really well with red wooden stakes at the edge of the fairways.
-The fairways are kept mowed, however if you're not in the fairway it's very rough.
-The park has lots of parking.
-Many holes have a risk/reward element.
-Long mostly open holes for those of you who really like to throw those power shots, this is the place for you.
-This course has some of the roughest rough I've ever experienced. Thorns, bushes, trees and tall grass are waiting just off of every fairway. I have left several discs in the thick rough after looking hard and only finding bloody shins and pricked fingers. Its so frustrating it's not even worth my time/plastic.
-First timers may have a hard time finding their way from basket to box in a few spots. The course could use some 'next tee' signs.
-I'm not a fan of this type of course, wide open and long may be fun for some people but I much prefer tighter technical holes.
-The line of cars to get into the parking lot on the weekends can get very long - come earlier on weekends to avoid this or come during the week.
-This course was built in the wetlands, if you're planning on playing in the heat bring lots of water.

Work in Progress
Pros: Highest level of difficulty around
Near a park
Very flat (stroller friendly)
Cons: Eats Discs
The rough is really rough
Barbed wire on #17
Tee pads not poured
Other Thoughts: This course is still very new, and my review is applicable to the day I played it. Several of the tee pads were just dirt, with 2x4s staked around them for formwork. Hopefully nobody falls on the steel stakes.
The grass/blackberry bush rough is a disc eater and leg scraper. Do whatever you can to stay on the fairway or you will be searching for a good part of your round.
The difficulty was a plus for me, and I was having a good time until hole 17. This hole looks as though it had a bomb dropped on it. If you go right watch out for the barbed wire that is buried deep in the ground on one end. It wrapped around my leg and got me pretty good.
Once all the tees are poured and #17 gets groomed a little, this will be one of the nicest courses around. As it stands it's good but not great.
