Default Yadkin County Park (North Carolina). No map... any insight?

Going out for an early morning round at Yadkin in North Carolina tomorrow morning. No map available, so was just wondering what to be aware of. Any holes difficult to locate? Any hidden baskets? From reviews it seems there are no tee signs, but the concrete pads have hole numbers on them which is helpful.

Any insight is helpful.

The first 4 holes or so are straight forward, out in the open mostly. Once you go into the woods, you'll play a tight, downhill bomb (hole #6) which opens up at the end. They move the baskets a lot there so if you can't see it from the tee it's probably farther back, straight on the hill. From there go left and play up the hill, it's more right than straight.

Here's where it gets tricky. Hole #8 has a hidden basket, it's just tucked into the right tree line. If you walk up that little crest in front of the tee, you can see a dirt patch where everyone has worn in from putting.

Hole #9 is a huge downhill hole, basket is either short on the left among those young trees or long and to the right near those pines.

Hole #10 is straightforward I believe, Hole #11 will trick you into throwing straight at the basket you can see (#13). That's the wrong one, hole #11 is over the creek on the left. Hole #12 you follow the creek, it's a s-curve. Hole #13 is a blind basket, it's a sharp little downhill hyzer, basket just left of creek.

Hole #14 plays uphill, basket tucked into the trees on the left. #15 straightforward. Hole #16 is similar to #13 except longer and with 2 fairways to muddle. Hole #17 plays mercilessly wooded and uphill but the basket is visible, and #18 is similar to the first 4 holes.

Just hit me with some thumbs up on my review, is all I ask. If you deem helpful of course.

It's a fun course, you'll enjoy it much more if you don't have to walk up the fairways to spot baskets on a few holes, especially in this heat. The tees are nice and new too. Hole #9 is one of the best in the state.

Cheers

Hey man... thanks again. Everything went great with your directions this morning. Dropped a 59. It's a sweet course. #6 has a sick tight fairway. A lucky roller after a horrible drive saved me par. Anyway, had a great time, so just wanted to thank you again.

Yadkinville is nice. Went out there today with a few others and hole 17 decided to kick my a$$. However in the second round I saw some nice drives thrown by another guy using a banger.
