 Not bad

Pros: Grounds are well kept. Trees are trimmed. Holes 1 through 5 through the trees are enjoyable. The tree lined 9 is probably the signature hole. Once I found the 1st hole, nice flow, easy to follow.
Cons: Hole 6 somewhat uses the lake but it would be great if it could have been used more. Holes 7 and 8 are flat and boring especially after playing 1-5 through the trees. I would not play after a rain due to the flatness of the course, it does not look like it would drain well.
Other Thoughts: Not bad, I'd go back. The grounds are nice. I parked by the chicken coop maintenance barn and walked back to hole 1. Hole 9 ends by where I parked. The hum of the cars from Hwy 59 could be annoying to some. The tee of hole 8 is near the on ramp to the highway.

Lots of trees on six of the nine holes make you play very careful lines. One hole plays over/around a small lake. Two open holes battle the wind. A nice balance of technical and power holes. The final hole plays ~360' perfectly straight down a heavily tree-lined fairway.

Good tee signs with accurate distances. Once you find the first tee the course is very easy to navigate and flows well. Neon orange bands around the basket poles helps to spot the baskets.
First hole fairway is more like a swamp after rain. No easy access to a warm-up basket prior to teeing off on #1. Favors RHBH throwers as there are mostly straight or right-to-left shots. Hole #3 could be trimmed a bit to give a more realistic fairway.
Other Thoughts:
On church property so be conscious of playing on Sundays. Holes #6-8 play over the expansion parking area and may be unplayable during some church events. After playing this course a few times now I appreciate it more. Though there's no hole out here that a good INT-ADV player should bogey.
