Pros: -Baskets in good shape
-Signs at each teepad so you know which hole it is for (the distance and shape are worn off though)
-Sign at beginning that has a map of the whole course
-Makes good use of the few obstacles that are present
-Water comes into play on a couple of holes
Cons: -The area is a little low and swampy which could be a real problem after even a just a small rain
-Tee pads are gravel with rocks in it which is pretty easy to slip on
-All baskets are easily reachable from the tees as the longest hole is about 300'
Other Thoughts: The first two holes are very uninspired here; I was starting to question the course as a whole until I got to hole 3. From that point on there are obstacles and some shaping of shots required. I found myself somewhat impressed by the use of the natural obstacles as there isn't much to work with, but what's there is used well. Hole 8 is a very nice design, requiring a rather accurate tee shot to fit through a small opening towards the basket. There is plenty of room to make the holes longer or add more; it's a little bit of a shame that a couple of the holes don't use this extra space.
A large drainage ditch comes into play on 2-3 holes. The ditch had a slight smell to it, but it wasn't too bad. I could see this becoming an issue however. Also, the land the course is on is mostly low swampy land; the kind of land that never is completely dry. Be prepared to have your feet get wet when playing here; bring a change of socks and/or shoes. I would assume that this would be a mosquito haven; however I cannot say this with complete certainty since the mosquitos weren't out yet when I was here. The longest hole here is 300' so you can probably leave the drivers at home. The teepads are gravel, and as such are fairly easy to slip on. All in all, this course is decent for what it is and I wouldn't mind coming here again for a quick round if I'm in the area.
