Pros: I had a blast on this course. Holes were reachable, with interesting obstacles early, middle, and late in the fairways. Elevation is provided by some humps you throw onto or off of. Different shapes of trees are used in lots of different ways. The water hole 13 was my favorite, as it was a bit nervy but totally possible to birdie. The back nine had fairway-defining "rough" left unmowed. I like this feature as long as it isn't disc-eating ivy, which it wasn't. This quality course is found in a well-maintained park, and getting there will give you a look at the Geneva suburbs.
Cons: Hole 6 is a disaster. It's a weird two-shot hole with an unrealistic gap and multiple pedestrian dangers. 3 and 18 would be unplayable during soccer activity. These three are the worst, but the course as a whole flirts with pedestrians and unaware picnickers a bit too much. Navigating without a map was hard, due to lack of tee signs and some old (alternate?) tees. There was an especially unexpected and long trip from pin 9 to tee 10. Getting from pin 17 to tee 18 was very unnatural and laborious. Could use some more variety in length too.
Other Thoughts: Bus line 10 conveniently terminates at the airport and at the golf course (Evaux stop), with downtown/oldtown in the middle (Bel Air stop). It takes about 15 min. from the airport to Bel Air and another 15 min. for the other leg, Bel Air to Evaux. After getting off at the Evaux stop, continue in the same direction walking to a sign that maps out a vita course through the woods towards the Sportcenter Les Evaux. Bear gradually left through the woods paths and get to another sign in about five minutes, then walk another five minutes straight down a road to the course site. Turn right when you see a pin (hole 2) and make your way back to tee 1 and the course sign.
