Pros: - Easy to navigate (path to next hole easy to see)
- Good challenge
- Good mix of shots (left, right, straight, woods to open, open to tunnels/woods, elevation changes)
- Course was clean/not a lot of litter
- Good mix of distance (I think, see cons)
- Benches and trash cans available at a few holes
Cons: - Majority of holes only have sign posts and no signs (I think I only saw maybe 4 actual signs)
- baskets hard to see (Mach III's are hard to see in the woods) and with no signage hard to locate on some holes
- Some of the teepads seemed really short
- No onsite water or bathrooms
- Gold tees are difficult to locate
- Park is very crowded and most people play the short tees (more in other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: !!!UPDATE!!!: I changed my mind about this course. It is almost too crowded. I've played this course numerous times and it can be a pain. I generally like to play the longer tees but I'm starting to think I'm the only person in town that does. Every time I play I end up sandwiched between foursomes playing the white/short tees. On this course a foursome can run up your rear in a hurry if they are playing white and you are playing blue. If I'm in front of a group playing white I feel hurried and that is not an enjoyable experience. I play to challenge myself and to have fun but this course being so crowded tends to take the fun out of it for me. I may have to start playing early in the morning and see how that goes. Also the Gold tees are insane and really difficult to find. But I dropped a whole disc off of my review for the crowdedness (am I anti-social?)

This is a very popular course and fairly busy. It is a DG only park (I think), I didn't see any walkers/joggers/bikers.

I did enjoy the course even though this was my first time through. It was a fun challenge. Many holes have tight gaps to hit from the Blue layout (which I played).I guess it is now my home course since I live 5 minutes away.

I was peeved about the lack of signage but I guess that will force me to throw the shot and not the distance. But I do like to know where the basket is but I guess I'll learn the locations with time. Lack of onsite water or bathrooms can get messy. I usually try to bring plenty of water of my own anyway.

Hole 18 has two baskets and that was confusing at the end of the round.

Overall it's a really nice course. The locals/usuals there were friendly and one group was kind enough to let me play through and at the same time filled me in on league/doubles schedule.
