This is a fairly good nine-hole park style, rec to intermediate course (see ‘other’, below) that incorporates a huge swath of the available park space, and does so relatively safely, presenting a number of fun shots, and fits its intended audience well for challenge level. With generous, level, concrete tees leading you to the white Patriot baskets (including a practice basket between 1 & 2), the course plays mostly apart from the other park activities, amongst mature trees and creek-lining rough. If challenge is your cup of tea, you’ll likely enjoy throwing the 14th tee across the river. There’s really a good variety in hole distances and angles of attack, making this a nice design with decent replay factor.
Though the signage is excellent, and was applied to the tee pad (likely for easier course (mowing) maintenance), the full-size metal plate is bolted in the back right corner of each pad (where most rhbh players begin their ‘run up’), and first timers may need to use the map (now uploaded from that other app) included here, as opposed to the schematic, due to the lack of above-ground or ‘next tee’ signage. The course plays mostly flat throughout, and there are five or six tee pads that will give you a chance of losing a disc in either the creek or the river. Finally, I had a little issue with the flow of the course falling apart after the ninth basket: it’s a LONG walk to the bouncy suspension bridge, and then back the full length of the hole to play ten, and a long walk across the ninth fairway to get from 17 to 18’s tee.
This course almost fits my criterion for being something more than a “two by nine” (it does not have 18 baskets, but the alternate set of tees actually has a fairly different flow and variety of angles), but it is a nine-hole course. During the winter, you will encounter a ‘park closed’ sign on the gate, but that applies to vehicular traffic. The detailed sign nearby points out that the course and park are indeed open after 8am.
