Pros: Teepads are long and in great shape and the baskets are in good condition as well. This is a nice park right by the lake. The wind becomes a factor and they make use of the fee trees in the park.
Cons: There is no signage at all. 2 or 3 of the teepads have the hole numbers scratched into the teepad. Once you find the teepad you can tell where you are supposed to throw. There was a lot of beer cans on the fairways. If you pack it in please pack it out.
Other Thoughts: If you park by the playground you can start on hole 6 and work your way around. If you play this route you will have a decent walk from hole 9 to hole one where the other parking lot is on the far side of the park. Hole 1 is the only hole on that area of land. Hole 2's teepad is 30 feet past the basket of hole 1. After hole 4 walk up the hill and you will see hole 5's teepad. The basket is under the trees near the houses.
The navigation has much improved since I last stepped on this course 4 or 5 years ago. It is suppose to go to 18 teepads with 9 baskets but I did not see the orange paint on the grass for the newer holes. After you played it once navigation would be easy but for people new to the park they could have some difficulty.
Wide open 9.

Pros: Very nice concrete teeboxes.
Very nice baskets.
Fairly easy to follow without signs at the teebox.
No real traffic to deal with. (walkers,dogs, or joggers)
Park on location which is nice if you have kids with you.
Cons: No signage at the teeboxes.
A little bit of trash out on the course, didn't see any trash cans.
Every hole was pretty much the same, not much of a shot shaping course.
Pretty much grip and rip off the tee.
Some trees but not enough to make it difficult.
No trash cans.
Other Thoughts: It's located at a nice park that seems to be taken care of (some trash around). This would be a great 9 hole course if had a few more amenities. (i.e. signs, trash cans, more trees to bring up the difficulty).
All in all it wasn't a bad little 9 hole course to practice you big driver shots or practice your long to mid range game.

Pros: -new concrete teepads
-nice, clean park
-the park has elevation, a fair amount of trees around 7-9, and a great view of the lake
-potential to play some cool safari layouts
Cons: -not much in the way of obstacles, the course is mostly just long and open
-pedestrian paths throughout, well-used by walkers and joggers
-very little shade on this mostly open course
-the wind is nearly always blasting off the lake
Other Thoughts: After existing in a miserable state for years, this course finally has designated tee pads and they are concrete. A most welcome update for a course that really isn't as bad as it looks.
Use the parking lot of the north side of the park and you will drive past hole 1 on your left. The layout flows clockwise around the park. The rolling hills come into play on hole 3 and to a lesser degree on holes 4, 6, & 7. Holes 7-9 have a number of trees in play and will require a small amount of line shaping but they're still pretty open.
There used to be a small pond in the middle of the park, close to where tee 6 is located now if I remember correctly. Not sure if that area still gets flooded. The pedestrian trails are well used but I have never seen as many in the park as Hector Chain indicates above. I've only played in the morning or middle of the afternoon though.
This course is not worth going out of your way to play but it is not as bad as the rating would imply. Definitely a worthy place to practice if you live nearby or somewhere an adventurous group can go to play safari golf, especially if the other courses around town are crowded. Very close to Turner Park.
