Pros: The course offers a good variety of shots including technical and distance shots and both Hyzer and Anhyzer. Good flow and newly redisigned which offers some great improvements
Cons: A couple holes in the woods might be classified as poke and hope especially #13 and #17. Could be improved with just a couple trees removed. The tee pads being installed might be a little short on the open holes but should be sufficient on the wooded holes
Other Thoughts: Concrete tee pads are currently being installed. Holes 1-5 are complete with both short and long tees. The long tees are very creative on the front nine and will be very fun to play. The long tees on the back nine looks to have just lengthened most holes.

Pros: Course currently has natural tees which in my book qualifies it as a temp course even if the baskets are installed.

Course layout has good flow and no obvious dangerous areas such as crossing fairways or pins too close to tees. Layout was also logical so finding next tee wasn't difficult. Grass areas were well manicured.
Cons: The front nine is very open not requiring much strategy other than "throw to the pin". Back nine tried to make up for it by having several holes without a discernible fairway. Good scores on these holes was more luck than skill but this could've been remedied with a few trees taken out of each fairway.
Other Thoughts: Pleasant enough course but probably won't make anyone's Top Ten unless they don't get of the area.

Projected long tees don't look like it will require any more than moving up a disc but am looking forward to having the final tees in.

Will also be interesting to see how short tees play in a tournament. i predict those starting on the back nine will finish much sooner than those on front nine. Once players start playing pinball on the back nine things should pile up quickly.
