First hole is bottom left going across the water.

Is this an actual course you are designing or just fantasizing a little? If its fantasy, I suggest a few bridges or maybe a ferry.

If its an actual course, it looks like 15-17 might be a problem. 15s basket looks awful close to the bailout zone from 16s tee and 16s basket looks pretty close to 17s tee also.

Looks like one of the holes (#10?) runs right along some property lines and people's backyards. A recipe for wayward shots going into those yards. A definite no-no, as other courses have found out.

Water used in typical ways---water carries off the tee, or holes running alongside the water. If you're determined to use a lot of water on a course, and it's a long course with par-4s and par-5s, try something a little different: a hole where your drive is all before the water, but a subsequent shot must cross it, so you're trying to drive as close to it as you can, without overshooting the landing zone.

But, mostly, boring. Lots of long, straight or nearly-straight, open shots on a golf course. Maybe it's better on the ground, but that's how it looks from the sky.

Who is the client? Who owns the land and/or is funding the course? What do they want the course to do for them?

Without knowing this, nothing can be said about whether the course is good or bad.

(For example, maybe the course is being funded by a neighbor who likes to collect other people's discs.)

First off this course may be for a tournament next year and this is my first attempt at designing a course. My neighborhood is in talks to approve the temp course tomorrow. I agree on hole 10 being to close to the property line, I will probably change that up. This course has some good elevation change and the straight shots look much better when you are ground level.

I actually need to fix the basket for hole 15. It is going to be a bit shorter than on the picture. I realized while playing that it was way to close.

The whole thing seems real close to houses and yards. Looks really tight play wise as well. Most normal players (or: not professional) are at risk of pushing those property lines and other fairways. I think the space may be just a touch too small.

Those are pretty wide fairways and the way I have designed most of the shot have been to be away from yards. Except 10, I still need to fix that one.
