Isolation - a pleasant stroll, away from it all, enjoying the clean air, rolling ridges, variety of deciduous trees, and bits of exposed rock / scattered boulders.
Isolation - with the echo of nearby gunfire, and no bars on the mobile phone, the fear of being accidentally mistaken for Bambi had me traversing around the course wildly waving my neon green and orange discs
If you like them long and open - well, look elsewhere, as this short (average ~255') course plays under (on only a few holes will you easily see the sky above your head) and around a variety of trees, which form natural fairways/throwing lanes. The gently undulating ridges and slopes of the hill hosting these trees bring elevation change into play on a few holes, more so if you are off-fairway! The varied rock formations add another bonus feature to the mix, as they often guard, or host, a basket.
Parking/baskets/somewhat-rough - okay, make that really rough - tees/signs all on the basic side. Even without a map, not too difficult to navigate.
Bring your control game. Fairways (throwing lanes, to be more accurate) range from moderately generous to pretty tight, but most fall into the challenging-but-fair category. Course is a bit right-turn oriented (nearly half the holes), the remainder being an equal mix of left/straight - for the most part, nothing too extreme. About half the holes are flattish, the remainder a mix of up or down. A few fairways parallel to / few baskets located near runaway possibilities - need a gentle touch!
Lots of nice holes on this attractively-set course. While my personal favourite was number-16 - a short, downhill, right-turner, with plenty of trees to avoid - players who enjoy a rolling, wooded courses will likely find a number of holes here to appreciate - certainly worth a visit if nearby.

Pros: The terrain is awsome. The holes tend to be on the short side with more finess needed to scoot in for par. The holes are almost all doglegged and require a couple throws in your arsenal to finish well. Challenging and very enjoyable.
Cons: It felt much like playing the back nine on Tully. The trees tend to be a bit dense at times. Some very trying, needle threading drives. No holes to open up the distance drives. Even the longer wholes require finess.
Other Thoughts: Obviously work is continuing to be done but I think the wholes could be brushed out a little more. Played three times with 63, 62, and 62 for scores. I'll go back.
