Short and Sweet
Pros: Short, plays fast, rewards accuracy over power, challenges your shot choices.
Cons: Odd transition from #6 to #7, no benches or trash cans but that's nit picking. The tee box at #5 is the only one that's not concrete. It's loose tree bark and is very uneven.
Other Thoughts: If you play this course you can leave the distance drivers at home. The longest hole is #7 at 260 feet. This is not necessarily a bad thing as the course rewards accuracy and control over brute power. As an example, hole #2 is listed optimistically at 210 feet. It's Par 2, dead straight, downhill with a reasonably wide fairway through the woods. If you can throw straight this is an easily aceable hole. Also if you happen to work close by the course plays quickly and you could get in nine holes during your lunch hour and still have time for a sandwich.

The info page claims this course is "moderately hilly". I guess that depends on your definition of moderately. If you are old enough to have ever used a dime to make a call from a pay phone the climb up to the basket at #4, and then from there up to the tee at #5 will have you huffing and puffing.
You're in for another steep climb if you decide to play 18 holes as the climb from #9 back up to the #1 tee is also pretty stiff. You can park near the first tee but then you have that uphill climb after you're finished playing a round. The course map is a little deceptive as there is another small parking lot right next to the #9 basket that isn't shown. You'll be glad you parked there after 18 holes.
The walk from #6 to the tee at #7 is a little strange. You come out of the woods, go across the parking lot, and past the campground, before you get to the next tee. I don't know if they could have continued the course through the woods around the campground or not, but whatever, once you get used to it, it's not all that bad.
Overall this is a fun little course that can be a nice break from the big bomb, wide open courses and even though the first six holes are mostly in the woods, the underbrush is light so there's little chance of losing a disc after an off-line throw.
Pros: Short holes to work on your short game. Some of the holes had some degree of difficulty. I would play again if in the area.
Cons: The day I played it was very slick in the wooded areas.
Other Thoughts: There was enough room to add another 9 holes which would improve the over-all experience.
