not great....but not bad either
Pros: -Easy to follow. I had no problem getting around this course.
-Concrete tee pads. They are smaller then most concrete tee's I've seen, but 85% of the holes here are 225' and under.
-Nice park in general.Plenty of other stuff to do here, and the course seems like it avoids the rest of the park activities as much as possible
-Last 4 holes are great. After playing 14 pitch and putt holes its nice to finish on 4 holes that any course would love to have.
-Looks like the park did a good job of tornado clean up. I only noticed obvious damage on 2 holes (7, 16) and none of it affected play at all.In fact, I thought 16 looked really cool with the beauty of the lake mixed with the burnt look of the trees and ground.
-There are signs on every hole.(see cons also)
-Park felt safe.I saw quite a few park rangers out there.With that much law there I wasn't at all worried about my car, anything in it, or my personal safety.
-Good beginner course.
Cons: -Too short. The first 14 holes are almost all 225' and under. Hole 11 claims to be 340' but I would guess its more like 315'ish, and its way downhill.
-No shot variety. For a RHBH Every hole is straight or hyzer.
-Tee signs are inaccurate and placed very poorly. On nearly every tee the sign is placed within 1ft of the top right corner of the teepad. The danger of smacking your hand on a RHBH followthrough is real.Leftys get a nice visual distraction as well. Also the distances are off on the longer holes. 11 15 17 18 did not seem correct to me.
-Ticks. I pulled 3 of them off of me in march, I'd bet that in the summer they get real bad.
-Trash. There was a lot of trash in the bushes near a few pads. Pack it in pack it out locals.
Other Thoughts: This course is not horrible or anything, but unless you live nearby, or are in macon for some reason don't bother. If you do play here though, you will have a good time. I really liked the setting, but the course is fair at best.
I bet its nice in the summer when you can play 18,then cool off in the lake before round 2.
