Pros: The course at Redstone Arsenal has a nice variety of short, medium, long, wooded, open and technical holes. The majority of the course plays in the woods with only a couple holes that are mostly open.
About a third of the holes have multiple pin placements here. It looks like they really change the shot and help to keep the course fresh.
There are plenty of birdie opportunities here, but none of them are gimmie birdies. Accuracy is necessary to get your birdies here.
Cons: In certain places, navigating this course is difficult. If I hadn't been playing with people who knew the layout, I would have got lost a few times.
The area around hole 2's pad, 3's pin, 14's pad and 18's pin is very congested. During a tournament it could be dangerous to have so many pads and pins in such a small area.
This course seems to heavily favor right handed players. Most holes are straight and hyzer shots with only a few turnovers.
Other Thoughts: I like this course a lot and it seems like the most balanced course in Huntsville in terms of open vs. wooded and long vs. short. Great course for rec players to sharpen their game and pro's to tear up.
If some of the cons I mention above are addressed (particularly the navigation issue), this course could easily be a 4 or 4.5
