I haven't been there since last year, but that course doesn't drain well at all.

I was there this morning. First off, really cool course. Second it was just a little soft at first and then it turned into a straight up swamp in a couple spots. It had flooded as well so there was a bunch of trash everywhere but nothing to detract from what a great course it is in my opinion. I will be back hopefully a little dryer next time. Shot 4 under from the shorts n my first time out ther. Just couldn’t capitalize on my birdie ops. Putting practice you know. Disc on!!

such a cool course, it's too bad that it turned out the way it did. the original design had a few longer holes and a few tees that were in different places than now (with tougher lines to hit). then the city/property owners/whoever decided to build a bunch of apartments basically on the course. hole 9, in particular, was drastically affected. on the map you can see that there was originally a 525' blue tee and the fairway played directly through what is now all those apartments. i believe both red and blue tees on hole 4 used to be a tad longer too. tee 10 used to high on the hill to the left of the current pad, bringing that one tree more into play and adding some extra elevation. also, it turned out that the area just behind basket 4 and tee 5 has a natural spring just under the ground so that spot is always soaked.

i haven't been out there in years at this point. i guess it's time for me to make it back.

I keep hearing about upcoming redesign will replace holes 15 and 16, which never seem to dry out, and fix the drainage in several places. I'm uncertain if they will close any portions of the course while it is being worked on.
