Pros: This DGC and Church Park/Sublimity are sister courses creating a full 18, with the added bonus of a 2.5 mile drive between the 9s.
Another pretty little 10 acre course that wrings all it can out of an iota of elevation, a few rows of various ornamental hardwoods, and 4 holes worth of towering Douglas firs.
#1 is a short toss with a low ceiling of red oaks.
#2 drives through a window of ornamentals across a field to a pin guarded by a red oak.
#3 is an open, mid-range drive to a basket fronted by fruit trees.
#4 is completely open but longer, and the basket sits in a drainage depression.
#5 throws across this same depression, but still in the open.
Cross over the covered and foot bridges to the big trees.
#6 is a short RHBH hyzer, but has the river just over the hump of the bank, left of the pin.
#7 is a short straight drive with a gateway pine and maple, and backing firs.
#8 drives a lane with a central pine trunk and a 12' ceiling, with a pin elevated on a 2' stump.
#9 is an open field with a big fir blocking a left-side hyzer.
New Discatcher baskets, but the cement tees are 5' square, though you hardly need a runup on these short holes. No benches, but plenty of sitting areas on parking-area logs, fences, bridges, etc. Trash cans/bathrooms on site.
Luscious, barefoot-worthy grass.
Cons: Basically a novice course for beginners, though it shakes and shimmies like a $5 whore at a $3 brothel.
Other Thoughts: Playground, historic structures and 5 miles of wooded hiking trails that join Pioneer to two other parks. Lots of room for future DGC expansion.
Quickie marts and eateries 1/4 mile away.
