 New layout is more logical. Still needs some cleanup work.

Pros: Decent rec to intermediate course with three tee boxes on every hole. Some cool, albeit short wooded holes. Despite this being a mixed use park, most of the course is out of the way of other activities. Fun for winter time play when there's no foliage and lines open up. Good tee signs with all tee-pin distances located at the red tees. Wooded shots despite their short length in most cases, require some precision.
Cons: Some pretty dull under 200' pitch and putt holes that just didn't excite me. Not terribly well maintained in the woods as there are a lot of dead limbs around. Gets overgrown in the summer. White (middle) tees can be hard to find. Some sign and nickel vandalism. Hole 9 tee sign is missing.
Other Thoughts: Tierra has always had a reputation as a niche course compared to the 27 hole Roper Park course across town. This course has moved slightly over time. The layout here used to be bewildering. You had to walk all the way to the back of the park to get to Tee #1. Now its conveniently located up by the restroom which despite the simple, short hole, improves the flow. Some added trees in the open section to tighten things up would improve things, as would some cleanup in the woods. Not the best in town, but with all the different tees, you can mix it up for variety.
