Tough to Rate
Pros: - challenging
- good use of elevation changes and space available
- well maintained park
- not busy
Cons: - grass, dirt tee pads
- rough and weeds/grass is VERY thick
- pretty short, no real chances to open up the arm
Other Thoughts: This is a tough course to rate. On one hand, it's challenging and pretty well designed for the space available - many holes have elevation changes and water comes into play on several holes. On the other hand is the "rough". It's THICK. Tall native grasses (like 5 feet tall) and dense undergrowth (trees/bushes) that make finding a wayward disc a real chore.
Add in that you could easily lose a disc to the creek on a few holes, and this really becomes a course where playing safe and just surviving becomes the norm.
Almost need two ratings - one for early spring, late fall, when the grass and weeds are dead/dormant and one rating for summer when the course is borderline unplayable (or at least unenjoyable).
Pros: This is a great 9 hole for this area, it's about a 45 minute drive to the nearest course. It is well kept, grass mowed and trees trimmed. It is at a camp grounds, but it is nicely nessled in it's own area out of the way. It utilizes some hilly areas that can't really be used by anything else, so you should not feel crowded. It has a small variety of holes and you are able to utilize a few different lines per hole, so it doesn't really get boring.
Cons: There is a lot of tall grass and thick wooded areas that surround the fairways making a lot of OB, but it can be a little difficult to find a stray disc. no real signage, only posts that show what hole and the tee is just a 4x4 that has the distance engraved. Still pretty easy to find the baskets though.
New Vienna Course
Pros: -backhand friendly course
-nice baskets (numbered)
-plays the terrain well
Cons: -no signs
-tough to find
-no really variety in holes
Other Thoughts: The course is in a campground, so if it were to be busy, you are throwing around people. The course is a side thought, and baskets were randomly placed. The surrounding terrain is the only thing that made it challenging and at times frustrating. THe weeds are very high and the thorn bushes are everywhere, and with some very heavily overgrown areas, finding disc can be tough. If you played it in the winter, or early spring, the course would be very easy with little to no challenge. I personally did not like the drive to get to the course. The course its self was short, and just alright.
