Pros: - Lots of interesting elevation changes.
- Fun tonal targets on the front 9 (can probably hear a made putt from hundreds of meters away!)
Cons: - Extremely tough to let any longer drives rip without a spotter, as there are ample opportunities to lose a disc on this course.
- Worn foot paths give clues as to next tee (or basket) locations, but this course more than most I've played, needs "next tee" signage.
- Maintenance issues seem to be a chronic challenge, as 2-3 of the tees will barely be playable in a few years (with tree growth).
- Poor parking accommodations (side of the road, by the gate).
Other Thoughts: I'd LOVE to give this course a ~3.5 or so for a rating! It certainly has the potential, on an excellent piece of land. But it's awfully rough/rugged for your typical DGer. And if folks are playing it alone? You could spend literally hours searching for discs...while hitting your fairways! I assume the deal with the land owner is for use "as-is." Which severely limits what can be done related to maintenance. But several Saturdays per year with a crew of 7-8+ volunteers could turn this course into a real jewel on the island.

Is there still a course?

Pros: 18 holes in interesting terrain. Helpful map for download.
Cons: Overgrown, perhaps due to NO TRESPASSING sign at entry. Unplayable without spotter.
Other Thoughts: It took me close to 1 hour to play only 6 holes, because I permanently searched for tees, pins and discs. If maintained, it would be nice to play here.

Pros: this course has a lot of different holes from long to short tight wooded lines to open 600' fairways...
this course overlook's branen lake with beautiful views of the sunshine coast mountains.
Cons: Some of the fairways have heavy broom but will be removed this summer.
Tonal aren't the best but they get the job done. they will be getting upgraded by the fall 2013
Other Thoughts: come and check this course out for yourself you won"t regret it.
remember to go to the bathroom before you arrive as there is no washrooms.
please take out everything you bring in.
