Pros: It's open year round, so when you have a nice weekend in early March you can still play.
It's fairly challenging... most birdies are rare enough here to actually mean something.
Cons: A lot of the course is very swampy for much of the year.
Too many blind holes.
The course is usually very windy.
I have a love-hate affair with concrete tee pads, especially on long, swampy courses. I want to wear cleats for play in the fairway and the rough, but cleats don't ride well on the concrete tees.
Other Thoughts: When originally designed, there were few trees (in fact, they had paper-mache trees and hale bales for obstacles). Now that a bunch of the trees have grown up, the fairways have disappeared (for example, hole 5 has become pure luck... skill is no longer a significant part of this hole. There are similar problems with growth near hole 12 and others over the past 20 years).
I know that everybody else thinks having a bunch of 700+ ft holes is cool, but for me, it's just boring and stupid.
Similarly, when I bring newbies here, they ALWAYS lose a disc... whether in the high grass on the rough (rare) or the deep and blind water hazards near holes 6 and 9 (common). It is also too easy to lose a disc on hole 15 since the trees have grown, because the hole is now blind.
I don't really care for the artificial bunkers, either... they make me conscious of how artificial the holes are. As someone who's been playing since before Steady Ed's marketing of the pole-hole, I like courses that are more natural.
