Pros: This is a very well balanced beginner course. Hole one is downhill, two is uphill. Three and four are shorter and over the rough, seven and eight are longer and over the fairway. Five is a righty hole, six is for the lefties. Nine is the shortest hole, but it is a small green guarded by trees and brush on both sides, making birdies and bogeys possible.
Cons: It's a new course and not quite complete yet. I'm sure short term issues like no tee signs, some unnumbered baskets and lack of turf on the new fairways will soon be taken care of. A more long term issue is the excessive openness of the course. Having one hole where distance is the only obstacle to overcome is okay, but two back to back (7 and 8) is too much.
Other Thoughts: Despite the issues stemming from the novelty of the course, it was rather fun to play. It reminded me of a much smaller version of Baker's Farm (100+ miles due north of here) where open farmland was transformed into a very successful course. The designers have done quite well so far, given the sparsely treed land they have to work with. I'm curious to see how this one develops over the next few years, and hope that it grows into something even better.
