Can I Build A Sand Castle in the Sand Traps?
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Nice Gateway baskets that are in good shape and catch well.
-Very nice tee-signs. They give a good layout of each hole. They also show each pin position and the distance from each tee-pad to each pin position.
-Multiple tee-pads and pin-positions. The course has red and blue tee-pads.
-Holes 4 + 17 are longer holes. Hole 17 is between 700 and 800 feet (depending on the pin position). These holes are nice that add distance to a course that plays a little shorter than other courses in the area.
-Front 9 and back 9 have distinctive feels. The front 9 has a little more trees and slightly tighter fairways, while the back 9 is very wide open and uses sand-traps and mowed fairways as most of the challenges.
-Hole 2, 7 and 8 are some nice tightly wooded holes, which is nice to see a course that is generally more open.
-Course is easy to navigate with mowed paths usually leading to the next hole.
-Park is well taken care of and very pleasant.
-The sand traps are an interesting idea to add some more challenge to the course, and I haven't seen them at any other course before.
Cons: -The back 9 on this course start to feel repetitive. As long as you avoid the tall grass out of bounds or the sand-traps, there are not other obstacles. The back nine of this course never force a certain type of shot.
-Tee-pads are dirt and very badly rutted and muddy. I played this course right after it had rained and some of the tee-pads were barely usable. The blue tee-pads are so overgrown that they are almost impossible to find except on a couple of the holes.
-Other than holes 4 and 17, all of the distances felt fairly similar on this course and none of the other holes were very long.
-The sand bunkers were a little gimmicky and I didn't really feel like they changed up the holes that much from a normal wide open hole. Also all of the sand traps were really close to the hole. Adding a few further up in the fairway and on the sides of the fairways, could make some of the holes a little more interesting, it would work very well on the long hole 17.
-Overall, most of the course was pretty wide open and didn't force much of a shot selection.
-Overall, the course wasn't very difficult.
Other Thoughts: This is an average park course. A lack of trees is this courses, biggest issue. None of the holes are super memorable but this was still a pleasant round in a pleasant park. If you are in the neighborhood give this course a try, but don't go out of your way.

Good use of land
Pros: requires all kinds of shots just not one dimensial.
good use of land and blend between open and wooded
Cons: natural tees
throwing near people alot
no map or directions of where the basket is
no par info on posts
Other Thoughts: its a new course so i am sure most of those cons will be fixed. I came from IL to play this course, and unless there is a tourny I prolly wont come back.
