Pros: Very scenic course. Brand new Innova "28" baskets and Houck Platinum signs, 18 holes plus a practice basket/area. Large 5' x 12' brush finished concrete, Gold and Blue tees with "A" and "B" pin locations on each hole.Tons of mature trees on most holes force players to shape and plan their shots. A good drive, good approach and good putt are needed or a bogey (or worse) lurks, ready to pounce! Also some open holes to allow for some "grip it and rip it" shots. Nice variety of straight, hyzer and anhyzer shots required (sometimes on the same hole). This course will test you. Good shots are rewarded with another good opportunity, bad shots are punished. The overall course is fairly flat, but lots of "local" terrain changes. Benches at some holes, this is a long course. Recently got a port-a-let for the season and some more trash cans.
Cons: No water available, bring it. It is a heavily wooded course, bring the bug spray. The rough is still rough, but there are reductions already in the amount of schule on many holes, but still plenty of nettles and poison ivy. Can be easy to miss the small sign on Hazel Del Parkway. Go slow on the road coming in, it was recently smoothed, but it is still a gravel road....
Other Thoughts: Not a course for beginners (there are other nearby courses for that). Bring your "A" game, you will need it. Stay in the fairways, the rough swallows discs. Although in a city park, this is still a "semi-wild" property with lots of wildlife, including deer, coyotes, all kinds of small mammals, owls and tons of other birds and bees, some snakes (including some venomous ones, be careful reaching into blind areas). With two other 18-hole courses within 4 miles or so, you can make it a day! At the end of that day, you can cool off at the free mini-splash park at Lawrence W. Inlow, just north on Hazel Dell Parkway to 131st St and turn right, go 1/2 mile and turn left into the park. There is a FUN 9-hole pitch and putt disc golf course there that's good for the whole family. Great for a warmup round before playing the other courses, or for an ace-run / birdie bash at the end of the day!
