-This course has concrete tees
-It makes good use of elevation
-There is a course map at the kiosk
-Many wide open holes, long and unimpressive.
-This course needs 'next tee' signs, as it's not always obvious where to go after holing out.
-The fairways and greens are not defined in the thick long grass.
-Errant shots exit the long tall grass and land in thorny bushes scattered around the edges of the "fairways"
-There is trash in piles throughout the course

Other Thoughts:
-Ewing Young could be a lot better with a little TLC. It seems pretty neglected. With some regular mowing and trash clean up this course would look and play a lot better. Add some nice tee signs and 'next tee' signs, even better.

Pros: - Course is set in a decent sized city park that plays mostly in a field with trees/shrubs, but also has some wooded holes on the back end. There aren't any other activities going on here, so there should be no interference with the DG.
- A couple holes make very good use of some larger vegetation to force line shaping. #2's basket is behind/next to some very large pine trees that guard it very well, #3 has a huge patch of nasty rough right behind the basket, and #8 has a tight gap to go through (or over). #9 is a blind, sharp right curving shot up a hill and around a large bush.
- Wooded holes, #10 and #11, force a straight line through some gaps, a lot different from the rest of the course. #10 is especially tight close to the teepad, with some additional trees by the pin.
- Decent elevation changes here to make things interesting. #2 is a long, gentle valley, #3 is a short downhill shot, and #7 is a long downhill valley shot. #6 is slightly uphill, and #9 is a significant upslope on top of the blind RHFH line.
- Even mix of hole lengths, there are some ace runs and three bombers over 375'. Nice to be able to switch between drivers and approach discs on different holes.
- Nice concrete pads, and good baskets. Signs are more or less gone, but the map in front is all you need. Navigation is simple.
Cons: - A lot of open shots, that don't require much thought. #4, #5, and #6 are all free and clear except for some rough on the right side of the fairway. #1 and #12 have a few trees here and there, but it's easy to avoid.
- Some holes are a little close to each other, especially #4 next to #5.
Other Thoughts: - Course is not too shabby; lots of good spots to let some drives rip, a few holes that require good accuracy, and some uphill and downhill shots. While there's nothing super exciting, it provides enough enjoyment. Advanced players will be able to cruise through without any trouble, better suited to beginner/intermediate players.

Pros: Looks to use hills well. Uphill, downhill, sidehill shots.
Cons: Grass was getting tall. Tee boxes marked but no signage to direct you on which way to throw or where the next tee is. Got lost and ended up calling the round short. If they had/made better signage I'd be willing to try it again sometime.
