Pros: Well groomed, signs, easy to navigate. not much danger of losing plastic.
Cons: Very plain and basic course, very few technical shots. Very long drive from Buffalo and Surrounding area, especially from the southtowns where I live, not really worth the drive, only went there because we made the trip to Joe Davis.
Other Thoughts: <------ About going there again.

Pros: Easy to locate, very nice tee signs at every hole with indication of location to next tee. Very well maintained fairways, baskets all in good condition.
Cons: Never ending wind, very wet throughout almost to the point of being unplayable. Some awkward transitions particularly from # 9 to # 10 where you go through the playing area for # 5 and from # 12 to # 13 which first timers will need a map for.
Other Thoughts: Holy smokes! The wind wrecked havoc with my entire game from drives that turned into rollers to putts that floated up, up, and away. There must have been a monsoon the day before, cause this couse was water-loggged. Bring a change of shoes, socks and pants if playing wet. Hole # 7 was pretty cool with the double row of trees linning the fairway, and # 8 was the same coming back. Couple of birdie possibilities here even for the casual player and one (# 11) good ace chance even. It was cold and windy the day I played (and did I mention the water?) so it's hard to tell how much park usage would affect the game. Looked to me like the course could go through some picnic areas and # 15 come awfully close to a playground. May rate it better under nicer conditions.

Pros: Well-maintained park setting with a reasonably good course flow.

While none of the holes here should be truly challenging, there's just enough variety to keep things interesting. A couple require precise, straight drives down alleys flanked by rows of pine trees, there are a few long open fairways, and also some short birdie magnets.
Cons: Red tees are excessively short, giving ladies a *big* advantage in league play. Few (if any) risk-reward scenarios. Casual water seems to pool in many areas during spring thaw or after heavy rains.
Other Thoughts: Overall, Wilson isn't half bad, even though it plays on the easy side. Its major downfall is being located 15-20 minutes north of Joseph Davis Park, which boasts a similar novice-friendly difficulty level, concrete teepads vs. Wilson's grass, 9 more holes, and greater tranquility.

For anyone heading up from Buffalo or points south, there's little reason to drive directly past Joe D in favor of an inferior and more remote course.

Pros: This Course is always very well kept. The grass is always cut so you can do your rollers here if this is your thing. There are a lot of birdie chances out there. Can very easily shoot under par on this one.
Cons: Hole 2 and hole 11 need to go. Talks have been going on to loop course around past 7 and 8 and that would make this course much better. Hole 8 has grown in a lot and needs to be trimmed up.
Other Thoughts: All and all this is an average course at best. If you are in the Niagara region and want a course that is a challenge go to emery park. It takes almost an hour to get there but it is worth it.
