 good course that is located near i75

Pros: Convientally located of i75, no more than 5 miles. The course is set up at a rec center so there is playground for children and basketball goal in parkinglot. Also bathrooms located inside the building. The course has 9 holes, with a mixture of shots. The course also has a few mandos making it a little difficult to birdie every hole, like hole 4. Also they have been working on clearing some of the holes out like hole 3. Concrete teepads on all the holes. Excelent 9 hole course.
Cons: The signs at each hole are generic. They do not always tell the location of the basket correctly. Only having 9 holes is also a con, but I do not think there is room to add more holes.
Other Thoughts: This a a fairly easy course but does have its challenges. Like the few mandos and hole one, up the hill and to the left. Not difficult but does need some skill to end with a negative game.

Pros: Great utilization of the land available. Amazing mix of shots and elevation. Concrete tee pads on every hole with well defined fairways.
Cons: Other park amenities in close proximity to fairways. Little bit of a litter problem on the back side of the rec. center building.

Pros: love this course(and hate as always;) )good variety of throws needed, nice hills, good double chain baskets, free, concrete tees, a few holes need accuracy, fear of radiation is always a good thing....close to highway, mulch on the trails, have NEVER had to wait on a group and have played countless times! plenty of parking except on election day.and most importantly-no sinks snobs! you see more gentle hippies and city dwellers if you catch my drift

chatt town's less known basket haven
Cons: no long holes......

...only nine baskets? not too much bad to say about it other than the signs leave some to be desires and the trash on the holes the rec center users are on or nearby.
Other Thoughts: bring the baskets from carver over here and make it an 18!

please! if there is room up the hill there....or we could always commandeer one of the cemeterys

 Introduction to wooded

Pros: Concrete tees, challenges your mid range shot selection, easy to follow course flow, even a bad shot off the fairway gives you a chance to advance instead of justing tossing it back to the fairway, plus Melinda Gordon might stop by.
Cons: Some steep drop offs for bad shots, no distance signs/map, the trees moved between rounds to mess up my game.
Other Thoughts: This was our introduction to a wooded course and we had a good time. The narrow fairways added difficulty without being overly intimidating. We will be back, and soon!

 Course in Progress

Pros: Very good technical course that will test your best shots. Short and through the woods. Hosts a number of good challenges that will make the best golfer even better.
Cons: Well, the course is still in development and the tee pads have not been poured yet. They are marked and staked but no concrete yet. It has been rainy and cold the past couple months, so no real chance to pave them yet. Some holes have out of bounds and mando's but aren't clearly marked and there are no signs or any markers... you have to just look for the next tee pad.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun little course to play and will be even better once the tee pads are poured and they get signs up. Hopefully they will also be expanding as well, as I have heard rumoured whilst playing at "The Sinks". Definitely a course to experience.
