Pros:
Quality 4'x10' level, concrete tees, tall teesigns, and quality baskets,

Combination of open/wooded, elevation changes, shot-shaping, distances.
Cons: A few of the holes have dense collection of random trees ~2/3rds of the way down the fairway, making luck a major factor.

A few tees are too close to previous baskets/other fairways - for example, tee-10 is in danger of too-wide-a-turning drive from tee-9, and also from a too-early-a-turn drive from tee-16.

Some of the ascents/descents to tees/baskets are a bit steep, and could be slippery when wet, Thick undergrowth along the early wooded holes could cause some long searches,

Other Thoughts: Course dominates a new park set behind a neighbourhood bordering former farmland, with 1/3rd of the course starting/ending in open space, and the bulk of the course playing up, down, and atop a wooded plateau.

The open holes (1-2, 15-18) are, as expected, where most of the longer holes are found, some with out-of-bounds (left or "island"), treelines (along right side), and/or elevation loss. Holes 3-9 (and start of 10) are on the shorter side, and play up, down, and along the wooded slope, with an emphasis on tunneling fairways, right-turns, and good control. Holes 10-14 are set atop the wooded plateau, where the trees are taller/denser, underbrush is less prevalent, holes lengthen, and where most of the left-turning shots will be found.

Favourite hole: #11 - a long, "double-jointed" left-turner, with many-a-tree to cast aside a wayward disc.

Navigation: Even w/o a map, following the course was fairly straightforward, with the next-tee arrows at the bottom of the baskets. Only a bit of backtracking occurs from bakset-1 to tee-2, basket-5 to tee-6, and basket-12 to tee-13.

A decent course, offering good variety, which should improve as it breaks in over time.

Great variety

Pros: Course makes great use of elevation. There are some downhill bombers, ravines and uphill shots to traverse. Really good job of making some unique holes that you won't see every day. In particular one hole is guarded by two large rock piles after a tight lined downhill bomb. The last hole is also pretty cool - parked on top of a retention basement that requires good placement. On the whole it has a good mix of open and wooded holes which is difficult for many courses to achieve. Mostly wooded holes that really require you to hit your lines. Difficult but not absurdly so - I would not recommend for beginners. Fairly easy to navigate as well with good tee signs, next tee signs and quality concrete pads. Dunkle did a nice job with this one.
Cons: This course is a jungle. If you're not prepared it will take your lunch money and more than likely one or two of your soldiers as well. Be prepared to spend some time hiking in the brush. Could use a little more maintenance though that's really no fault of the designer.
Other Thoughts: Bring your A game. This course requires an awesome variety of throws to succeed. You're going to need to bring your best backhand, forehand, tomahawks etc. the whole gambit of throws is required which is what I liked best about it.

Very nice

Pros: Quality design in a small park.
Bathrooms were new and clean.
Nice use of the elevation changes.
Putting may be a challenge due to the fast greens on the existing pin postions.
Course has new baskets and concrete tees throughout.

Cons: I thought some of the wooded holes were routed a little close together, as the course develops this may become an issue.

Other Thoughts: Nice use of the elevation changes. Worth the hour+ drive.
Fun to play and looking forward to going back.

Great new course

Pros: - Good use of OB to make the shorter holes interesting.
- Some real signature short holes that require precision turns through elevation changes.
- Most of the wooded holes had a fairly wide path but lots of bends.
- Good mix of open, wooded, and altitude holes.
- Nice full size concrete pads
- Good signage.
- Pretty park.
Cons: - a couple holes in the woods were spray and pray.
- could do with a couple long holes.
- no water. I like water.
Other Thoughts: Was an hour drive for me, but I'll be back soon.

Nice but a bit strenuous

Pros: Newer course, no trash, freshly cleaned fairways so no brush or weeds (it was early spring though), new grippy teepads, easy to read not missing tee signs.
Cons: Steep! Hills abound in the first 9 (all I made it through due to flying in that day). I am sure that #6 is 189 long and 189 up!
Other Thoughts: I think this is going to be a phenomenal course once all the grass grows in, and the wind isn't blowing 30 mph like the day I played. Don't miss this one if you are nearby!

Pros: This picturesque course has a great layout featuring the perfect mix of long and short holes, wooded and non-wooded holes, and an interesting use of elevations. You never know who will win it on any given day. Tee pads and baskets are great, signage is attractive and easy to read (making it easy to navigate) The park is dog friendly.
Cons: Very few: the course fits well into a tight space and, the designers made the most of it but, the wooded holes are a bit close together. The contrasting elevations make for interesting holes but, there are a few steep inclines to negotiate.
Other Thoughts: A beautiful course filled with interesting holes that is sure to produce a different winner every time. Enjoy!
