Pros: Signed, Good Discatcher baskets, Easy to follow layout
Cons: First 4 holes have lots of water and very small fairways, Couple of holes shoot near roads/parking lots, very thick rough. Course does not loop, a long walk from Hole 9 to Hole 1. While the course is signed they mark it in yards when it's obviously feet, considering this the distances seem to be mostly accurate.
Other Thoughts: The first 4 holes are on a walking path circling a large pond. If you go left of the path you will be in the pond, if you got right of the path you will be in thick rough, or marshy wetlands. The only safe area is the fairway which is no wider than the walking path.

The back 5 offer up some creative tight shots including some elevation and tight but fair gaps. The holes also have tight fairways but their is no water hazards and the rough isnt as bad as the front.

These back holes are a large reason the rating is a 2 and not a 1.

I'm not a big fan of hole 8 which requires you to throw over the bus parking lot and land on a slim fairway or go deep into the rough.

When I played in winter the brush wasn't in bloom so landing in the rough wasn't bad but I can see in the summer months it will create a lot of headaches. I understand the course was only recently completed late 2016 so hopefully there are plans in place to remove some of the thick rough next season.

Between all the water hazards, the extremely slim fairways on most of the holes, and the thick rough this course is not beginner friendly. beginners will end the round frustrated and disc-less.
