Crossroads DGC 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:May 27, 2022 Played the course:2-4 times

Pros:

-- Good turf tee pads (except for No. 1, which looks as if it is about to be installed).
-- Map at No. 1 tee.
-- Good use of land (modest elevation, lots of trees and some water, although no water carry).
-- Some really fun holes that require/reward accuracy: No. 3 is about 245 feet with water (a creek/ditch extending from the pond) about 200-220 feet away. No. 5 (325 feet) is a RHBH blind shot around a tight corner with the basket 12 feet left of the pond. Six (228 feet) has water 20 feet right and back of basket. No. 17 is about 250 feet uphill to a basket guarded by trees.
-- Orange paint on the basket helps direct you to the next tee, but it could be more visible.
-- Nice tee signs with all of the basic information.

Cons:

-- Navigation is not intuitive; I never really got lost, but I spent WAY too much time checking the map.
-- Some confusion as to which basket you are throwing to. For example, the basket you see from the No. 2 tee is the No. 3 basket. You throw past it to reach the No. 2 basket, and then throw back to the No. 3 basket you just walked past. There is also a double mando on 2 to keep you away from No. 3 basket. This is one of three double mandos (2, 7, 13) on the course. No. 13 is a gimmicky double mando (six feet wide, 25 feet from the tee) on a 145-foot hole. No. 7 is 350 feet to a double mando that is 18 feet wide and requires a nearly 90 degree right turn to reach the basket; a short tee (the only hole on the course with two tees) off to the left cuts the distance in half, but requires a RHBH shot through the mando before a hard right turn to reach the basket. This tee is not listed on the map; it is very close to the No. 6 tee. I am not a fan of double mandos.
-- No. 15 has an island OB (180 feet to clear on a 195-foot hole). The hole is in the woods with plenty of trees as obstacles, so adding this feels like an unnecessary gimmick.
-- Two sets of parallel holes (8-9, 14-15) are a safety hazard.
-- No. 12 tee sign shows the basket hard right; it's straight ahead; since you are in the woods, you can't see the basket, so you are relying on the sign.
-- No benches.
-- No restrooms most of the time; this is on church property, but the building does not appear to be open except when there are services.
-- Long walk from 5 to 6 (along the dam). You'll see a temporary basket below to your left; ignore it.
-- No. 11 (about 350 feet) is a heavily wooded hole with no real path to the basket.
-- Long walk (1,000 feet?) back to parking at No. 1 tee.

Other Thoughts:

-- No. 1 tee sign is missing; it appears to have been cut off/down. Hopefully this will be replaced soon.
-- There are two temporary Black Hole Portal baskets on the course; the first is between holes 6 and 7 and can lead to some confusion. The other is in the open field and could serve as a practice basket, but it's about 1,000 feet from the parking lot and the first tee.
-- A water feature (creek/ditch) being dug to create an extension of the pond near baskets 1-3 appears to have been abandoned. The area where the water feature would have been was muddy/boggy despite the rest of the course being bone dry.
-- No. 18 now tees right beside a portable building. The building was not present two years ago; it doesn't really impact the play, but it does change the aesthetic. Trees have also been cleared just right of the fairway (for more buildings, it appears), which does open up the RHBH line. The basket for this hole is in a tree stump, so the aesthetic is nice, but the basket is slightly high.

It will be fun when completed 2+ years

Reviewed: Played on:May 29, 2020 Played the course:once

Pros:

New baskets Starts in the open goes into the woods. A little variety.

Cons:

They dont have the tees or the signs in yet so it is a little hard to follow in spots. Lots of short holes in the woods. Most of the holes are pretty short.

Other Thoughts:

They have lots of trees marked for removal. I hope they actually keep most of these. The holes are short so the trees add the only hard part. More trees are good. Once they are gone it will be to easy.

I plan on trying again once they have the signs in to update my review. It is a fun little course right now.

Reviewed: Played on:May 22, 2020 Played the course:once

Pros:

Rolling grassy hills, pond and stream, several interesting mandos and tight wooded fairways

Cons:

Brand new course, no tee signs or cement tee pads yet, just flags & rubber to tee pads with spray painted arrows for directions

Other Thoughts:

Lots of trees are marked to be saved / removed in the wooded holes 9-18. Very fun course with tough doglegs on the short birdie holes
