Good nine hole
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Nice mix of open and close technical shots. Both right- and left-handed opportunities.
Cons: Hole four can be tricky because of cars parking nearby and it runs along the edge of the parking lot
Other Thoughts: Mosquitos and water near 7

Good Beginner Course
Pros: I've been playing for a month or two now and this my local course. I play it pretty much every weekend so I have a good feel for it. The course has as relatively easy to follow path and despite being short, has a variety of different shots you'll be able to try. For beginners, it's a good course to play as your highly unlikely to lose a disc.
Cons: Some of the pars feel mismatched. It has a single short par 5 and the rest are par 3's, some of which feel long.
No OB marked anywhere.
On school grounds so there are times when you cannot play it (school hours, games, some practices).
3 and 4 are near active parking so you might have to skip a hole or adjust your shot to avoid potential property damage.
Other Thoughts: It's a fun course but has some issues. I'd recommend treating holes 1, 4, 5 and 9 as par 4's instead of 3's for beginners as they are quite long/difficult for a beginner get in putting range with a single throw.
Hole 1: A nice open par 3. The hole is about 300 feet away on a gently sloping hill that runs down to the right. Consider the road to the left and baseball field to the right OB.
Hole 2: A downhill drive that threads two baseball fields. A small path runs in front of the driving area and runs right along the hole. Treat both fields and the path as OB. You also have to shoot over a fence a short way down. If you hit the fence you have to buy everyone a drink.
Hole 3: A short par 3 with a small walk path running between the tee and pin, and a another path behind the pin. Treat the paths and parking lot to the left as OB
Hole 4: A thin fairway that rolls downhill to a parking lot. A fence is at the top of the hill which goes to the track. Treat the parking lot and the track and field area beyond the fence as OB.
Hole 5: A uphill blind drive that has some trees blocking the direct path to the pin. A trail runs right along the hole up past the pin. Treat the path as OB until it reaches the pole that marks the next tee.
Hole 6: The one par 5 on the course. Very flat and open with a fence that runs along the right side. Treat the fence as OB.
Hole 7: A short downhill drive that goes down a lane between woods. Perhaps the first Aceable hole a beginner will come across. The woods are relatively clear and you can even throw through them if you go in deep enough.
Hole 8: Perhaps the most dangerous hole in terms of losing a disc. A flat long drive down the same lane as 7. Bushes and green immediately off the fairway can be very thick. Keep an eye out where you disc lands if you go in or it can be very difficult to find it.
Hole 9: A long final hole with lots of trouble right. A residents yard runs along the left and a road sits in front. A walkway also crosses in front of the pin and goes into the road. Treat the road, residential property, and walkway as OB. Also be careful when approaching the pin as it's almost directing behind the Hole 1 tee.
New and not bad

Pros: Easy to navigate. Varied holes in general. Elevation used nicely. Generous fairways on most holes. Power and accuracy needed for birdies. Basket nine and tee one are right next to each other, which could also be a problem.
Cons: Pavement and chain link fence in play in several spots. Many tee signs have been destroyed already. Get off the fairway on #7 or #8 and it's tough getting out. Eight par-3s and one par-5. A couple holes would be more justified as par-4s.
Other Thoughts: Only a couple of these holes are actually in Rockman's Woods. One is #7, which is a really fun downhill shot and my favorite on course. It would be good to see a Back 9 actually in the woods. Fun course, but last on my rankings among the 6 local courses within 30 miles.
