Pros: Good signage to direct from one hole to the next tee. Easy to find discs off the fairways. Good mix of wide and narrow fairways mixed with some straight but also dog legs left and right. Nice use of elevation changes. Good distance for amateurs. Beautiful scenery and not at all crowded on the three days we have been there.
Cons: Signs just indicate hole number, not distances. Fairly long walks between some holes and the next tee (seems like that could have added some length to the holes). "Path" from 17th tee needs some work (either add stairs down or clear a path on the left or right side down a less steep slope). Pay to play, make sure you plan ahead to get your pass from Jackson Guard (closed Sat afternoon and all day Sunday).
Other Thoughts: Once the concrete tees are in (and if they make a clear path from the 17th tee down to the fairway) I would give it a 4. We're so glad to finally have a course on this side of Eglin because it seemed liked every time we made the drive to Ferry Park it was so crowded. We navigated the whole course with a jogging stroller but anything with smaller wheels would not make it since the ground is still so uneven from being recently cleared. We did have to take the long way around on 17 by going to the 18th hole and walking back to the 17th fairway.

Nice challenging course
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Not as hard as it looks. Allows for some variations of shots. You can play a hole different ways. Easy to spot discs that go off paths. Elevation gives it more of a challenge. Signs are very helpful.
Cons: Work in progress. Needs tee boxes. Hole 17 could use a sign to show how to get to the fairway after disc is thrown from the tee.
Other Thoughts: Nice change of pace from playing the other courses in the area. Very fun to play.

Worth the short drive
Pros: This course has the benefit of being new and a change from other local courses. The semi pay to play concept on federal property MIGHT discourage illegal activity. Course design requires skill and variation of shots, without being overwhelming. Some elevation changes are also a welcome change from other local courses. There is a nice pavillion/rest area with very scenic views.
Cons: short holes with natural tee pads.
Other Thoughts: Once the concrete/other pads are in place it will be much easier to enjoy the course. Fresh land clearing has left the course very uneven. Once people get out there and are trampling the ground down it will flow a lot better. Due to the nature aspect this course could be rough on the body (joints, heat, bugs etc). Overall once it gets settled in it will be a very enjoyable course with some memorable holes.

Very new but nice
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Finally got new course in Florida. Pros are nice scene to look at. Very technical. Have to throw low and straight to get a good score. This is the only course that has hill and slopes in my area. Most courses I play are pretty flat. And there is water hazard if you throw to far.
Camping/Picnic area on course also there is a pond for fishing.
Cons: Not very long. Natural tee's. But cement tee's will be in soon.
Other Thoughts: Carry bug spray in summer.
