Pros: Challenging course, relative seclusion, good tee pads (except for new holes). New layout for Holes 2-5 (as of 5/09) is a marginal improvement, but the new holes don't yet have cement tees. Tightly wooded layout through pines should make course better than others on windy days.
Cons: Some odd course design (three road holes rank with least favorites, the tight right on old hole 2/new hole 6), Could use some trimming on some holes to create Oshtemo style fairways. Somewhat difficult to navigate throughout, made worse by deletion of back nine holes 13-16. Remaining signs have the old hole numbers, further complicating navigation. A couple of missing baskets (new Hole 3, old Hole 8), and a couple of old baskets have broken chain links.
Other Thoughts: Decent course with easy potential to be better. Selective tree removal (Whitehall, which is similar but shorter and more easily navigated, also needs this). Trails and better signs would help too. When better signs and tee pads are done for the new holes, I will up my rating.
