Rough, Rough, Rough…Stop Barking!
Pros: This is a nice park. The lake is beautiful (not part of the course) and the course is well maintained. I am sure from the air that this course would look like a ball golf course. The fairways are mowed out (almost carved out) of the landscape. The hole variety length is excellent. There are some short holes and a couple rather long holes out here. This course does have some elevation on several holes even though most of the course is flat. There were tee signs and cement tees in place. There were a couple of protected baskets to get to.
Cons: Navigation is not easy here. It has you crossing multiple streets and some are not that obvious. Some of the tee signs do have the "Next Tee" sticker on them. However, the ones that are really needed, those are the ones that are missing. This place uses the TALL grass roughs that make finding a disc not so easy sometimes. The fairways are fairly narrow as it is, so it is tough not to get into the tall grass on most of your drives unless you are driving the hole every time. The par settings have only 3 par 3's, so this may not be a negative per say, but keep that in mind. If I remember correctly, be careful on hole #5, as this drives near a playground area (and a picnic table at the time of this review), so you will want to make sure the coast is clear. There are few technical holes, so long and straight is the game for the most part.
Other Thoughts: Getting to the first hole will require you to find the road that get's you to the highest point of the hill in the middle of the course. It was a dirt road/gravel road right off the nice paved park road when I was there. There was lots of big equipment and hard work going on, so some of these things may change in time.
The Fun Factor for me was just OK. I loved the fact that no one else was around except the workers, but I would imagine that was partially due to it being a weekday. The rough is just such a bummer to have to mess with. Tall grass will never be something I favor. That and the lack of technicality is why I did get too excited here. Like the title to this review-Lots of bark and not much bite.
