Kennedy Ace Mission
Pros: Pleasant Surprise for a low key municipal park. Short nine hole course that plays tightly in the woods before opening up for the final few holes. The woods holes (1-6 when I played..apparently wooded 6 is a summer hole and is replaced by an open field hole during non baseball season) all play technically and tight and seem to follow a lefty/righty pattern alternating your drive off the tee for every ensuing hole. The wooded holes are short but technical. I felt I could birdie every hole but also was punished severely for errant throws off the tee. Good design in the woods with R and L turning shots carved through thick woods but no thorns. Navigation was a non issue due to being well marked and surprisingly good tees for a local course. I particularly enjoyed the temp hole 6 a slight woodsy downhill that broke to the right and hole 2 a longer R hyzer line. Once your out in the open you can unleash on slightly uphill 7 marked at 310 feet. Nine plays close to the very scenic and beautiful pond. I was overall very impressed with how much quality DG was packed into this course. Secluded woods and then the open field holes seem to keep you away from most park activities. There are aces and birdies out there but you will earn them. Good for beginners, as it is not overly long while fun for experts as you really have to hit your lines to score well here.
Cons: No true elevation, distance, or signature holes. Road is nearby on 7, 8 and off season #6....more of just in your head than true danger. I wish there was a throw over the pond hole. No real design flaws or true gripes here. No long distance or multi drive holes.
Other Thoughts: This is amongst the best local nine hole courses I have played. It's not particularly grand but it is very well designed and packs a fun punch. I would play this if your playing nearby Prompton as it offers great technical holes and a fun short game that Prompton lacks.
