Pros: Full disclosure: I am the course designer

-good use of elevation, especially given how flat town is. Especially like holes 1 and 16, which are both a hard rip down a big hill.

-Several big open bombers, several extremely technical throws, with everything in between

-not busy, in a quiet park

-hole 14, signature hole: you need a big hyzer or anhyzer over a river to get to the landing zone, then a very precise approach shot onto a slope

-good variety of shots needed: you will have opportunity to try everything.

-great signage makes navigating for a first time player very easy. Includes detailed tee signs and bricks in the ground with arrows leading the player from baskets to next tees

-some beautiful views, especially at the end of hole 18
Cons: -Pros will find this course short, although with some challenges. There are several planned tournament-only holes which all players will find very challenging.

-no washrooms or other amenities

-hole 6 tee is on a moderately busy path

-hole 18 ends three blocks away from hole 1, there is no 9 hole loop that puts you close to your car. If you do want to do a 9 hole loop, your best bet is to do this order: 1-4, 10, 11, 9, 5-6. The path at the basket on hole 6 will take you back to hole 1.
Other Thoughts: On blind holes, look for a white stake. This is on a direct line between the long tee and the basket.

Us locals are happy to take anyone out for a round and show off the course. Email or find me in the forums.
