 Worst flow of any course I've ever played

Pros: Very challenging variety of hole types. There's a ton of birdie opportunities to start, some very challenging thread-the-needle throws in the woods, and some booming distance holes in the field toward the back of the park.
Cons: At least half of the tee signs were missing, and the ones that were there did not consistently show the path from the end of one hole to the beginning of the next. I attempted to play this course twice and got lost 3 or more times each round. The second time I played, I took a picture of the course map near #1 and still couldn't figure it out. When I approached a local and asked if he would mind pairing up, he said no.

The flow is awful. In several cases, you finish a hole, and then either have to double-back past the hole you just played, or have to take a short (unobvious) hike to find the next tee. If you see a tee nearby the basket you just finished, it's ALWAYS the wrong one. And there won't be a tee sign there to tell you.
Other Thoughts: Without knowing the course history, it appears the first 9 were installed a long time ago as a pitch and putt course, and then an additional 18 holes were placed further into the park. I commend the designers in producing a very nice variety and using the entire park, but they need to take some steps to help the people from out of town.

A simple arrow on the basket pointing toward the next tee would suffice, because then I would at least know the direction I'm supposed to be heading.

Pros: 27 holes, well maintained park, lots of grass. not too crowded. concrete teepads.
Cons: some picnicking on fairways from non disc golfers at certain times.
Other Thoughts: its been 7 years since i played there, but it was a great experience. mowed fairways, playing through mature pine trees but still a wide open course for the most part. the squirrels are big enough to carry off a stray disc that live in the park. roller shots can prevail but not necessary to score low rounds, some fairways have tight shots you need to be on line for. there were only 18 holes when i played there so the added holes can only make it a better experience. im hoping someone can give it a better review, someone who has played all 27 holes.
