 One of the best 9 holers out there

Pros: This course is great for a 9 hole course. It has multiple tee pads on 8 out of the 9 holes. Has one hole that might be one of the toughest 150 ft. It is a fair hole to play, but I have seen scores vary from 2-5.
Cons: The course is right next to a middle school, so trash is definitely a problem. Vandalism is also a problem. Most of the players there are rec players and damage the signage a great deal. I don't know how many signs are left out there.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, so I am a bit biased about it. I do believe though if you get past the trash and vandalism, that this is one of the best 9 hole courses in the US. And others have made the same comment.

 A good course once you get past its condition

Pros: Lots of interesting elevation. Good balance. Flows fairly well. Multiple concrete tees on each hole.
Cons: Litter is often a problem. The bridge from #2 to #3 is collapsed and unsafe to cross. Many missing signs. Forced to walk back along the final fairway to get back to parking lot.
Other Thoughts: One of the more interesting 9-holers around, there are even a few legitimate par 4 holes. A challenging and fun course to play, but unfortunately is showing its age with litter and missing signage.
