Pros: This is a good course for beginners and youngsters. But, this review is based on what I personally like and how this course stacks up in my list of 9 hole courses:

1) Holes with good risk/reward. Fair, but harsh punishment for bad decisions or execution. == D+
(Holes 4 & 6 have a couple of trees to navigate and hole 5 has some low-hanging weeping willows to throw under, but other than that no real obstacles.)

2) Holes that have rewarding birdie opportunities for me. I throw 300' accurately, 360' max. == D
(I shot a 9 down 18 with just a midrange first time out if that says anything.)

3) More wooded than open - lots of variety of shots required caused by hole shape and topography == C-
(see #1 for obstacles that at least add a little variety)

4) Natural beauty (Appalachian beauty preferred) and seclusion. == C
(park is nice, clean and well maintained but you basically play around the perimeter of the park with a soccerfield in the middle. No seclusion from other park users in this multi-use park.)

5) Bonus points for multi-throw holes with defined landing zones, good risk/reward and multiple options to play them. == N/A
Other Thoughts: It's all about feeding the addiction, so I ranked this course subjectively based on my own "personal addiction factor". The grades above tell how well the course will draw me back to itself again and again and again. Since I have played a decent number of courses (125 18-hole, 64 9-hole as of mid 2009), my hope is that players/explorers who have similar addiction tastes will find my ratings list helpful as they choose courses to play and explore.

I fully expect others with different tastes/philosophies to disagree with me....that's the fun of things here. See my profile for my rating philosophy.
