 Not Worth the Trip

Pros: Has a sign to mark the access road to get back to golfer parking area.

Decent amount of trash cans at the pavillions that dot the front half of the course.

A water fountain between holes 4 & 5.

Easy access from Highway 255.

Baskets are in good shape and easy to find.

.......and that's about it.
Cons: When coming from the north, there's no sign ot point you towards the park (but there is one when coming from the south, rather weird).

No signanage to designate the golfer/pavillion parking area (just signs saying 'Don't Park on the Grass'), but in all fairness one can figure that out on their own.

No sign to point you towards the first tee.

No kiosk/golfer info area, and likewise no place to store scorecards, had they even been provided.

"Tees" are simply grass (more mud than grass) with a strip of bricks to mark off the front of the box. 50 bucks worth of gravel from Home Depot would do wonders.

I couldn't even find hole 7's bricks, but more importantly, where are the pro pads??? The signs provided marked off distances for both amateur and pro tees (actually labeled intermediate), but where the pro 'pads' are is anyone's guess.

No signs to point you towards the next tee; which in a course this small, isn't really a problem, except for the hole 3 to hole 4 transition.

No maps on the tee signs, but again,the course is so short it's relatively easy to find the correct pin.

Where's the bathroom(s)?

No elevation change at all, and the few trees and one road that intersects the course are hardly a challenge to get around.

No variety to the shots. 7 of the 9 holes are dead ahead, the other two are mild RHBH anhyzers.
Other Thoughts: A nice, quiet park to bring out the little ones or introduce noobs to the game, but that's about all the purpose this course serves.

Intermediate/advanced players will see this course as nothing but 9 ace runs in a row; very boring.

Rockspring Park is only ~6 miles away, and is leaps and bounds ahead of Roxana; much more worthy of your time.

Pros: Nice smaller 9 hole course. Nothing TOO challenging, good beginner/medium level course. Great park setting with tons of tall tall thick trees. Some courses seem easier to the eye, OB comes into play very quickly.
Cons: Some holes may be short for the power guys. Pond is now drained, don't know if it's coming back. No tee pads!
Other Thoughts: Kudos to Roxana for putting this course in! A credit to the area!

Pros: Nice little course. The Baskets are fairly well protected by either trees or OB walking paths. Two tee pads allow you to play this like an 18 hole course.
Flows pretty well from hole to hole.
Cons: Has natural tee pads (grass).
No elevation at all.
On busy days, other park-goers may pose a problem as the walking trail winds through a lot of the course.
Other Thoughts: It was a fun course. Not very challenging, but i live close and so will play again.
