Default Brighton Rec now has 18 holes

If you played Brighton Rec in the past and poo poo it, like it did, you owe it to your self to check it out again. I was surprised today when I planned on playing a quick 9 holes, after writing it off for the past 4-6 months, to see that the full 18 is in. No T pads on the back nine but the new holes are awesome. Check out my review of the course that I posted today.

If you do play it, look me up, I will probably be there. This is now my new home course.

Is navigation and upkeep any better than when I was there around the beginning of September? Because they were horrible then...

:edit: This is the Chilson Woods course, right?

Default chilson woods / brighton rec

Yes, hey are one in the same, Chilson Woods = Brighton Rec area. Yes, navigation has been redone with new signs starting at 5 (old 22). The holes are now re-numbered, 1-18 and the flow is good. Play the front nine as before but it dosn't jump from from from 4 to 22 anymore. Hole 10 starts across from hole ones tee pad, just after nine.

Also, I am going to start carrying some small pruning sheers when I play. There are random Rosebush like thorns, I am just going to snip them if my lie gets a little off the fairway.

I weekend with some weed whips could do some good, no idea what they have planned.

Played all 18 yesterday and uploaded pix of back 9.

Back 9 is moderately to very hilly, quite a bit more interesting/fun than the front, and a big improvement for the course overall. Now, I might actually come here more than once a year. Back 9 is not cart friendly for those so inclined.

FYI - as rohean mentioned in one of his posts, lots of thorns - plentiful off the fairway, and quite a few in random spots on fairways... not a good place for toddlers.
