Don't go concrete until the design is set in stone maybe just markers and fine woodchips or gravel where erosion could be an issue.

Signs are always good-- small next tee sign with arrows are key in places where the flow is broken.

Maintenance is generally whatever you want to put into the course and it will show-- some courses are maintained at 10x that of others. Some tree removal could be possible, any storm damages, erosion control, Wood-chips around baskets, and general landscaping to improve flow (keep players in-line) as well as overall experience through the use of native flowers, additional trees or bush/shrubs, stairways, railings, paths, benches, "bag holder" posts with hooks, and many other maintenance improvements which are possible throughout the life of a course.

Keep in mind the idea of any possible expansion also. Lengths of holes seem good specially considering slopes and not generally EASY but do not seem hard either. I do like the suggestions of possibly shortening a hole or 2 making it more technical but shorter and giving even a longer set of holes also. People like their big downhill rips and open D shots to let loose sometimes

Looks nice and good luck! Check out the top reviewed courses and read those pro's/con's also so you can see generally what is good for the course and where they tend to lack or have issues.
