New Holland Course
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Brand new course in Holland built on an old golf course so naturally it is a beautiful course
-Nice and long teepads to shoot from
-Great signage with distance, pars (three par 4's), and pictures of water hazards and large trees as well as showing elevation
-Excellent variety of shots for all throws. Long shots (500+ on a few), shorts shots (a few under 300), right fading shots and left fading shots with a good variety of hazards/trees to play around and some open. Also some elevation on a number of holes but not huge elevation.
-Well kept course-Basket 3 was stolen about a week after the course was put in (really!?) but a new one was back about a week later.
-Good location-just off the main road leaving or coming to Holland.
-Good people-Have only had positive interactions with people playing the course. Including one time losing a disc in the water hazard when some kids that were in there looking for discs found mine and gave it to me.
Cons: -A few holes that have potential for losing a disc-Some bad rough in parts and a couple blind holes with rough outside the fairway. I've had a spotter each time so I've never had a problem but if you were here by yourself, that could be a problem, be careful and spot! Of course the huge water hazard shot always has potential for losing a disc as well
-Parking lot could come into play I believe on #12 and #18. However, unless it's a terrible shot it shouldn't be an issue. I think it's far enough away not to matter, but it's worth mentioning.
-Someone stole basket 3 already, but it's been replaced.
Other Thoughts: New course to the Holland area. Was hoping Holland would get another course soon being so big and such a popular tourist spot with already high traffic. Pleased to say the course is a great one to play. Very beautiful course with some elevation and great variety. You will not be disappointed with this course!

Great Course - Bring a spotter
Pros: - Very challenging and many tight fairways
- Good mix of dogleg left, dogleg right, and straight holes
- Good mix of long and short holes
- Excellent course signage
- Great long concrete tee pads
- Great elevation changes throughout course
Cons: - Few holes like 16 and 18 could benefit from mandatories
- Location of 16th fairway is low lying and probably has a tendency to flood.
- Lack of color on baskets can make it difficult to spot from the tee, even on some of the shorter holes.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is an excellent course. It is a very challenging course and is very fun to play. Don't be afraid to ask for a spotter because the rough and OB areas are very tall and discs can easily be lost.
Great addition to the area especially after the Winstrom Preserve course was gutted of most of the trees which made that course interesting.

Great Course But Some Bad Design
3 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Very challenging hole layouts
Cons: Bad design choices on some holes.
2 holes are designed to throw directly towards the parking lot, 12 & 18 (gonna be trouble)
Hole 16 has you throwing over 15's teepad and over 14's basket at the same time(needs a mando maybe)
Hole 18 (bring a ladder) basket is way to close to private building. Lots of people are gonna be in the parking lot or on the roof of that building.

Great Addition to Holland/Zeeland
Pros: - Lots of variety in the course from water holes, to weeds, to trees
- Great use of the area with elevation changes, placement of tees and pads
- Course is designed well and easy to navigate while playing
- Somewhat challenging due to some fairways not being very wide
Cons: - There are a couple holes where you have to walk back down the fairway after making the basket, so be aware of others driving at that point
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course and is very close to my home. I will be visiting this course frequently.
It is somewhat challenging, I would not go to this course as a beginner because there are many opportunities to throw your disc in the water.
