Pros: -Good tees with new signs being installed.
-Wonderful views of reservoir.
-Lots of trash bins and benches.
-Never too crowded.
Cons: -Fairways on the front 9 are not very clear. All for a challenge, but this course seems to be a lot of luck rather than skill. Good throws are not always rewarded.
-Brush is thick and heavy, discs are easily lost.
Other Thoughts: This course took a big step forward with new tees and signs, but then took two steps back with the new layout. Baskets were moved to odd locations that are barely cleared and some are in low brush. Challenge is an awesome thing, but at the same time, courses should offer opportunities for good, skilled shots. Many of the revised hole locations require just as much luck as skill.

Pros: Nice layout. Very challenging. Great scenic views of lake and valleys. The course is easy to follow, it flows nicely. It can be a busy course but generally you won't have trouble getting tee times. Quiet atmosphere, lots of nature. Nice elevation usage.
Cons: There are a few concrete tee pads, the others are in horrible condition. The pads they poured are small. Trash everywhere even though there are trash cans. Lots of trimming needs to be done. Doesn't seem that anyone wants to do any work on it. It looks like a run down course. Strange looking men stare at you.
Other Thoughts: Worth the trip to throw. Overall it is a nice course, it just needs someone to put some work into it.

Pros: Excellent use of natural obstacles.

Great workout hiking in and out of the woods.

The potential for this course is definitely there.
Cons: Tee boxes are gravel-ish and not in good condition.

Course markers are hard to find and not very helpful. Without a map, you could easily miss a couple holes.

Wooded areas are not clear of debris and grassy areas were almost three feet high with very narrow 'fairways' cut through the middle.

Spent more time hunting for discs in the grass then we did actually playing the round.
Other Thoughts: If the park maintains the course a bit more and keeps the grass trimmed, this course could be very nice. It is by far the most difficult course I have played.

Pros: Challenging. Front nine is wooded but very playable.
Cons: Back nine is a long, hard walk up and down a very large hill. Poor signage on the entire course.
Other Thoughts: At times there is water in play. One hole on the front nine appeared to be in the process of a redesign and we played what we thought was the right teebox only to find out it was not the right teebox. Back nine should probably have a few more par fours and the 480' hole should probably be a par five for amateurs.
