Pros: This is a wild course tons of fun. The front nine are wide open. You even get to drive off a cliff. The hole course is very well layed out for the use of there space. The back nine is tight Quaters lots of trees. The baskets are well guarded. Nice mix of long holes on the front nine and short holes on the back nine. Over all it is a hard course to shoot very technical course. Personally I loved it all.
Cons: The only cons on this course that I found is that the tee pads on the front nine are short so it is kinda awkward, and the back nine is got some lose rock on the tee pads so be careful.
Other Thoughts: Very nice course I loved the whole thing i wish i could play there more often. If you need more information get on

 Cliffs and Trees

Pros: This may be the best course ever. The first 9 baskets are all about the elevation - 40' sheer-rock cliffs. A lot of satisfaction when you can throw straight off the cliffs and watch the disc arc back toward the basket. The back 9 are all short but sweet - trees everywhere. Great course!
Cons: Poison Ivy! The left edge of hole 1, and the entire back 9 do contain poison ivy. If you are careful about foot placement, you should be fine. But inevitably you will have to pick your disc out of the ivy. Bring hand sanitizer (go non-polar solvents!)
Other Thoughts: Epic hills. Epic Trees. Totally my favorite course.

Pros: First 9 are very wide open and pretty damn long. If you can bomb it, they will come (birdies that is). But some are over 450+ ft.I loved throwing off the cliffs and watching the "s" flight of the disc.

Many good trees on back 9 to hang bag on while shooting. Also, nobody is ever here, as I didn't run into a single person anytime I've played. Good cardio workout!
Cons: The hills are pretty daunting, and can get a bit tiring walking up, but worth it once your on top. Watch hole #1. It is not as far as it looks, as I threw it past about 100 ft off the other side of the cliff and had to walk a long damn way to get the disc. The back nine were
pretty bad ass once you can locate tee signs.
Other Thoughts: Just passing through, and I thought it was a pretty good course. I would come back if I was in the area.

 Decent Course, Lots of Trash

Pros: Nice elevation changes, Some cool holes where you are required to through a hyzer out over a cliff edge and have it come back to safety. OK design. If I lived here I'd play this course.
Cons: Front holes are all very similar. I am also not a big fan of holes that have no obstacles and just have a basket sitting in an open field. This is typical of many of the front 9 holes. Also the back is full of blair which style holes. LOTS OF TRASH ALL OVER THE PLACE.
Other Thoughts: If you are passing through this one may be worth a look.

Cons: Some of the holes was hard to find. Had to walk around a minute or two to find the baskets.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a very nice course. I will play it again.

Pros: Variety, Elevation, Scenery, Lots of OB
Cons: Poor Teepads, Some of the wooded shots are a little short and ridiculous, Occasionally not properly maintained
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course. Would do well with decent teepads and more course maintenance.

Pros: I designed this course,I knew the scenery and variations of landscape would make for every shot you had and then some.
Cons: My approach to Mayor Ballentine was this.If you install it you need to maintain it.Call the Mayors office if you see it not mowed or maintained.
Other Thoughts: Alma is a great facility,The pools are open in the summer and it's a great place to relax for a day or weekend.New rest rooms are now in the main parking lot area.I'll work on the Mayor for better T Pads.It's overdue.Better signs will be addressed as well.Tom Pitchford for any new course designs and if you have anything you'd like to fill me in on.Thanks.

Pros: Good course with a lot of different type of shots. The front 9 are open and longer and the back 9 are short but very wooded. The lake and area are great.
Cons: The front 9 tees are of rubber with a lot of grass over growing them. The back 9 are dirt/rock.
Other Thoughts: a good course, The front 9 and back 9 can be played as two different courses if you don't have time for the hole course. Both 1 adn 10 start at the parking lot and both 9 and 18 end at the parkign lot.

 A Different World

Pros: The landscape is gorgeous. The variety of shots coupled with some very unique ones make this course challenging and exciting. One of the most unique courses I have seen, a must play.
Cons: Better signs with an aerial shot of the hole would improve the course a lot. Had to walk a bit to find some of the baskets before I could tee off.
Other Thoughts: Tee boxes aren't the best in the world but they fit in well with the course. Really good course to get in touch with nature. Be very careful with your shots and you shouldn't lose a disc. No real complaints, a spectacular course.

 Great fun course

Pros: Mixed bag of stuff - you never know what to expect on the next hole!
Wild fun
Easy in and out to I-40
Cons: Easy to lose a disc around some of the dam/water service facilities
Other Thoughts: I played this on a cold December morning. Lost one or two discs here. That said, it was a fun near 18, even if my lower bits and pieces were frozen after we were done. It was more interesting that we had to play around some of the holiday lights (one or two holes were shut down because there were large light fixtures in the tee boxes!) so that made for some added fun. I need to play this one more, especially on fair days when I head up to Fort Smith or Fayetteville for their courses (fantastic warm-up course)!
