Pretty much perfect until the leaves start falling.

The front 9 is a park course weaving through the mostly open and mowed shared park amenities. You will have open throws, raised baskets, and even a true island hole (tournaments only).

The second half of the course is your standard Carolina Piedmont woods course, longer than the front but secluded, safe, and quiet. Fairways have been widened and signage updated.

No swimming for discs on hole 2 , island green is now approved tournaments only.
