Pros: -The white tee pads seemed nice if you can find them.
-There are also a variety of long, short, technical, open, uphill and downhill holes.
-Baskets were in good shape.
Cons: -I did not like the sign/tee pad lay out. If you wanted the white, you had to find the red sign then walk backwards (unless you saw it on your way), if you use red, it was often bumpy footing. Also not all signs were accurate and not at all aligned with the hole. A couple blind shots I aimed 40 yards off because the sign pointed me in the wrong direction.
-The walk from (I think) 8-9 was pretty lengthy and some holes I had to take a detour because it was too wet or the ground was tore up.
Other Thoughts: -I think it would make more sense to put the signs by the white tees, then maybe a post or something to mark the red tees. Another option would be to just have one set of tees.
-Some of the holes have an alternate location that has added distance. The signs do not note this change.
-The course basically makes two loops, one that goes through the western part of the course and the back 9 through the northern section.

 Confusing Course

Pros: Nice mixture of hyzer and anhyzer shots. Well maintained.
Cons: No concrete tees, hard to find where the tee is.
Other Thoughts: I spent more time looking for the tee than I did playing. The signs were easy enough to find, but most of the time they were not near the tee. The only thing around to show you where the tee is are tiny concrete markers, but not all the holes had them. Hole 9, in particular, had it's white tee 50 feet away from the sign.

Make the tees/signs less confusing and you have a pretty decent course that is great for beginners and long time players alike.

Pros: Wide open spaces. No real traffic to throw near. Beautiful woods.
Cons: Layout is a little bizarre at times and poorly marked. Not as much variety as other nearby courses.
Other Thoughts: Fun course, yet it is just not as good as 2 other courses in a drive nearby.

 Poor Design

Pros: Some nice elevation change throughout the course. White (long) tees are fairly easy to find and were where I played from.

The course has some length that will allow even highly skilled golfers to unleash some big drives. Several holes over 400 feet and several more in that 280-360 range. Hole 7 is a nice looking 280 foot snaking downhiller that requires a good shot through the trees. About 9 of the 18 are somewhat interesting holes that demand good shots to take birdies.
Cons: Overall, this course is pretty boring and not fun to play. The grass tees are often not level and were difficult to throw from in the morning dew. Alot of unecessary walking back and forth is required due to a poor design. The biggest disappointment is that severl of the pins could be extended to areas that would have made them great holes. Instead the best sections of the park are left mostly untapped. Hole 12 was the best example of this in my mind. A nice little turnover 280 foot downhill shot to the crest of a hill. But when you get to the pin and look how far the hill goes down into the woods, its mind boggling why they wouldn't have put a pin down there. Instead you walk down the hill to the next tee. Often there is a bit of a walk in between holes which is perplexing. Why not just use every inch of the park instead of spending all this time walking just to play a wide open hole? The fact that most of the holes offer few obstacles contributes to the lack of fun factor.
Other Thoughts: With a redesign to better utilize all sections of the park and eliminate the long walks, this could be a 4/5 course I believe. Also, the signs should be next to the white tees. Those wishing to play the reds could then walk forward to the tee instead of the current situation where you walk to the sign and see where the white tee is and then backtrack.

Pros: This was a nice course. There is a good mix of long and short shots. The skill set needed for the course makes it good for beginners yet being challenging enough for more experienced players.
Cons: The location for the red tees was easily found but I didn't want to play the short tees. I therefore spent too much time figuring out where the white tees should be. The layout left a little to be desired, causing one to cross other hole's lines of play. Bring a copy of the course's map because the layout is quite confusing without it.
Other Thoughts: If the designer would make a few changes to make the holes more contiguous, mark all the tees and install concrete tees, I could easily see this becoming a 4 rated course.
