Pros: -The use of the terrain is amazing at this course
-Excellent beginner to intermediate course
-Excellent pin placements
-Variety of shots needed
-Routing was simple with plenty of next tee signs
-Nice scorecards with a map
-Some blind shots and quite a bit of risk/reward shots
-Overall, the course layout/design is amazing for the property that they had to work with
-The wind that blows through here definitely adds a nice challenge
-I would easily rate this course a 4 when long tees are added
Cons: -No trashcans
-Teepads are very bumpy and uneven rubber mats
-Not a con for me, but there are a lot of very short holes
Other Thoughts: We hit this course on our 5 day DG trip to the west side of the state. Right now, it is definitely a beginner to intermediate course, but there will be long tees added in some time in the future. The long tees are already mowed and marked with flags, and Mason County Parks told us that they will be put in this year. I am hoping that concrete tees will be added in the future because the current tees are very bumpy and rutted.
We were amazed with the use of the terrain and the basket placements here. Very well designed. You will use quite a variety of shots.
I would highly suggest playing this course if you are in the area, and have time to play multiple courses. I definitely wouldn't skip Beauty/Beast/Goliath/Leviathan to play this course, but we had a 5 day trip and played 320 holes of 7 different courses. In my overall opinion, it was worth it.

Pros: lots of elevation changes making the course more difficult. a few tight wooded holes(17-22). a lot of tight lines and tough wind to play with. wide open fairways on quite a few holes giving a variety of shots.
Cons: fairly short right now. longs going in soon(already marked). off the fairway is some tall grass on most holes. easy to lose discs(lost 3 already). no teepads. teepads will be installed, but they won't be concrete.
Other Thoughts: overall, a wonderful course. the wind and the elevation changes combined make it a difficult course. wind at the teepad may be calm, but over the next hill or around the next corner is a whole different story. one of my favorite courses in the area. if you're in the area, check this course out. i just hope you don't lose any discs.

the potential is phenomenal
Aesthetic-Course wraps through a field behind West Shore Community College. shares some land with cross country course but the day we were out, we saw one runner the entire time. also has some access roads that run through so work trucks may cross your path.
Routing/navigation-not too bad. paths are mowed into the course to help guide but I'm sure with time "Next Tee" signs will be installed along with tee signs (I know this will be taken care of by the mason county boys)
Baskets-brand new ChainStars, orange necks for visibility
Risk v Reward-there is some here, throwing over hills blindly towards "that big tree" was a bit intimidating.
Variety-There is a lot of variety here. with just the short course available right now there are plenty of changes within this course.
Teesigns/next tee signs- these will be in by next week, I'm not so worried about these.
Teepads-at current, non-existant. rubber mats will be installed before long. there will not be cement pads here apparently.
Other Thoughts: With this course only being in place for three weeks, it's pretty impressive how far they've come. it definitely still has that "new course" smell, but playing with AikoAdam was great. he let us know of all the changes that will be in place before long. It seems that every hole will have a short and long tee in the future. WSCC also wants to have three 24-hole courses on site in the next few years and be able to host big tourneys.
