Pros: A lot of shots are required to play this technical course. Shot placement is critical because the course is surrounded by water. Good variety of hole lengths and difficulty.
Cons: Not much for elevation change on the course.
Other Thoughts: Just need tee signs to make it an awesome course.

Pros: decent winter course. I really enjoyed this course when it opened last fall. Fun holes, though frustrating water hazards. Good layout and use of area.
Cons: Big slash piles on the east end of the course. Beware of contact high.
Other Thoughts: The city has really worked on cleaning up the course. The weeds are gone. I'm not sure if they plan on removing the large slash pile but is still a large improvement over the summer weed issues.

First time to play Watson Island

Pros: -Very technically challenging
-Different hole lengths
-Pretty easy to navigate
-There is a nice sidewalk that runs through the entire course

Cons: -Very technically challenging -haha
-There are a couple of baskets right on the river... I lost a disc
-Only 13 permanent baskets right now... but more are coming!
Other Thoughts: So I have only been playing for about a year, and so this course really opened my eyes to what my game is lacking. The way this course is set up you really need to have a good variety of shots in your bag so you can adapt to whatever shot the course is going to give you. I liked the course overall and hope to play it again soon. You can tell that the local club has put a lot of time into this course adn they have plans to complete the last 5 holes soon. I think that this really is a 'players' course... you can tell by the way it was designed that it was not put together that it was not an after-thought added to a field to fill the space but that the guys putting it together spent a lot of time thinking through each course. Because of my own skill level I would have like a couple of easy shots but over-all I would rate it "VERY GOOD!"
