Pros: almost has 9 baskets
has one or 2 decent holes
Gated course to keep you from playing
Cons: mostly simple shots
Some areas are super dangerous of hitting people
Private gated course.
CHEAP Black hole baskets that are falling apart.
Other Thoughts: You can't expect much from an apartment complex course and this fits that bill.
Hole 1 starts behind the office and is a horrible hole in that the tee faces the wrong way, you have to throw down the hill, then back over to the basket. pretty area, but horrible hole.
Then the course starts to look more promising with a large fairway on the side of a hill. Don't throw over the fence or your disc is gone.
That goes for hole 3 too, the property has a finger between a few fences and hole 3 is a big left to right shot with private property fences all around. Decent enough hole, just risky from loosing a disc.
Then a short walk over to hole 4, nice little shot with apartments on the left and a tree line on the right.
Hole 5 is a dumb filler hole with nothing in the way, basket was barely standing when I played it.
Hole 6 looks just like hole 4
Then a short walk over to play hole 7, one of the most dangerous holes on the course in that there is a blind walking path on the fairway around the edge of a building. On top of that, the basket for this hole was destroyed. Only the basket park and it was hanging on by a thread (see pictures I posted)
Hole 8 is one of the longer holes on the course, and other than having to throw between buildings and down a walking path, is a decent hole.
Then you come to hole 9, over the dog park. The trees really make this one a tough hole, if you play the dog park as OB, this hole is really tough to throw for a 2. But not long enough to not go for it. Then what if someone is using the dog park, there is not much room to throw around it. Well, at least your not suppose to be here playing anyways. So not a big deal?
Would I play here again? Shoot, even if I lived here I would not play here again. Short drive down to play ZBoaz, don't bother with this one. Although it might be a good reason to live here if you wanted a backyard danger zone.

Pros: -- One decent (good?) hole: No. 3 is 259 feet RHFH with the basket (blind from the tee) guarded by a big tree. This is also the only hole on the course that does not have major safety issues.
Cons: -- Equipment is cheap AND in bad shape. Black Hole Portal baskets are falling apart. No. 7 only has the catching basket (no chains or center pole); No. 5 is partly broken and leaning badly.
-- Tee pads are gravel, but they are small (4 feet long) and surrounded by some sort of metal tubing in the ground which make any sort of runup difficult on most holes.
-- Tee signs are laminated paper tacked to wooden posts. Most are unreadable now, and some are completely missing.
--- Navigation is terrible. Finding No. 1 (between the office and the fence) is a challenge. Baskets are not numbered, so you throw to the basket you see straight ahead (through tree limbs, so some challenge). Later you figure out that was basket 9 you played from the No. 1 tee. If it were an actual hole, it would be the second-best on on the course. No. 2 is across the entrance to the complex from the actual basket for No. 1. Nos. 2-6 are fairly easy to find, but tees 3-4 back up to each other but play in the opposite directions; when you finish 3, you walk back up the fairway (blind to the tee) to reach No. 4. After 6, there is no indication where No. 7 is. I wandered 5-10 minutes before stumbling upon the 7 tee in the middle of half a dozen buildings. After 8, finding 9 was another challenge.
-- Safety. This is the most-dangerous course I have ever played. Except for 3, every hole has a walking path bordering or crossing it. Most fairways play within 20-25 feet of apartments, meaning an errant shot could hit someone on his/her patio. Parking lots also come into play. No. 1 is a RHFH around/over a playground area to a blind basket. No. 7 is a RHBH hyzer around a building to a basket you can't see from the tee. Your flight path basically follows a walking path. And the No. 8 tee is about 35 feet left of the 7 basket. No. 9 is a RHBH hyzer around/over a small dog park. Nos. 4 and 6 are straight shots, but you've got apartments lining the left edge of the fairway (20-25 feet away).
-- No benches, water or map.
Other Thoughts: -- This is a private course intended for residents of the apartment complex. It's unlikely to ever be crowded.
-- I'm a course bagger, and I regret the time I wasted on this course.
