Pros: This is one of the fairest courses that I have played. All the fairways are the perfect width for the length of the hole to give your birdie opportunities on every hole. At the same time due to the low ceiling they force you to shape each shot . Lots of elevation changes keep the course fresh and will challenge you to come up with a differant plan of attack on each hole. You can tell that a lot of labor and love goes into this course. It would be a full time job just to keep all the grass cut!

Another plus is that the course has a few open holes to let a few drives rip as well. If you can throw 350 then the open holes are probably going to be easy enough for you however if the wind picks up it will be a differant story. Again elevation will trick you on the open holes as well as there is just enough elevation change to make the distance tough to judge.
Cons: Many of the wooded holes have homemade baskets that do not catch as well as your discatcher baskets. Personally I do not see this as a negative at all I think it just adds to the challange. If you hit your putt dead center it will go in however these baskets are not as forgiving as a discatcher pro. You will probably not hear any complaints out of your good putters however people who struggle in this area may get a litte frustrated.

I actually think that the placement of the homemade baskets is nice in that they really add a little more challange to the shorter holes. The one on hole 12 is pretty sweet actually. One of the best looking homemade baskets I have seen.
Other Thoughts: If you are fortunate enough to play this beautiful course be sure to give a donation the the course owner. He has spent countless hours making this course what it is and I don't think that anyone could have done a better job.
