 layout ruins potential

Pros: nice park, a few interesting holes with elevation changes. hole #1 is the best of the bunch
Cons: signage is an absolute joke, very thick thorns and briar patches just off the fairway, course, 100 ft holes with no obstacles are pointless
Other Thoughts: like others have said this course has potential, but is not worth the headaches.

couldnt play holes #4 or #9 due to not being able to find the tees. picked a natural staring point for hole #6 since the sign also appeared missing. the sign for hole #1 points in a different direction then the shot, took a while to find this basket as well. no tee areas at all, not even dirt, just random pieces of wood with numbers written on them. if course was crowded the poor hole layout would result in lots of traffic on the fairways.

there are lots of extremely thick thorns and briar patches just off the fairway, long socks or pants are a must. there is a hill near basket #2 consisting solely of monster thorns, dont bother entering this if your disc goes here, not worth it.

hole #1 (once found) is really cool, a downhill shot into a clearing between tree patches. hole #3 is fun, a severe downhill drop into the woods and hole #8 is a cool shot as well. the straight shot 100 ft holes are wastes, not sure how someone would need more than 2 shots on these or how these holes are fun or helpful at all.

overall, the frustration of wandering around trying to figure out where to shoot outweighs any of the positives of this course. all the baskets are relatively easy to find (except #1), but you might as well just create your own tee in some cases since the course makes no sense. the course area is very nice, but a waste of potential, not worth a return trip.

Pros: Nice park.....Elevated tee on Hole 1. Hole 2 has a nice fairway and is the longest hole at 485 feet. Nice bathrooms and water available.
Cons: I thought this course was poor due to the grass overgrowth and ultra thick rough. Awkward design and poorly placed holes. Big punishment for errant throws. Most holes are pretty short. I think the designer made several holes blind to up the challenge. This course did not make much sense to me.
Other Thoughts: This course wasn't worth the trip for me because I didn't enjoy playing here. I enjoy playing the other courses nearby such as Harry Dunham in Liberty Corners or Greenwood Meadows in Warren.
