Pros: Great place to work on power. Hole 5 is over 700 ft. Beautiful park was nearly empty on a perfect Sunday afternoon. Quality tee signs. Course was clean and dry. Baskets are like new.
Cons: The course starts and ends at the back of the park. I would recommend starting with 6 and ending at 5. The large open meadow that 6 of the nine holes plays through could use some trees. There was no course map anywhere; not online, not at the park, not anywhere. The tee pads are small.The distances and lack of map leave you wondering at times which basket to throw at (most notably on hole 6, it's the basket to the right. I threw into OB flower patch before I figured it out)
Other Thoughts: I didn't find the basket for 2 until after I played 9. It's in the thick bush pretty well straight north of the tee and there really is no line to the basket. I thought the course was an interesting mix of distances and I enjoyed just ripping discs with no fear of losing them. I would recommend playing this course of you happen through Greencastle.

Pros: Nice to have a course in this part of the state.

Takes about fifty minutes to play a round.

Will be mowed weekly I have been told.

New Rubber Tee Pads.

New Baskets.

Nice long holes (including three in the five hundred range) holes three, four, and five.

Two holes that will be relatively easy to ace; holes one and seven.

If the course increases in popularity there may be an expansion.
Cons: Layout is slightly convoluted; holes don't seem to follow an easy to predict order.

Holes two and nine (the woods holes) seem tacked on. They are short (play with your putter) and the path has not been beaten down enough. It has been clear cut.

The signage sucks. It's nice that it is there but the way it is laid out it is hard to predict where the pins are according to the signs. There is no overall course map anywhere in the park that I have seen. I have found is no park signage directing you to hole one. This maybe corrected as the course ages (it is only week one).

There are very few obstacles as of today. I have been assured that trees will be planted in the next months. But as for right now it does not add to the overall challenge of the course.

Lots to improve, but doable.
Other Thoughts: This course is new, just having one here is great, but there is still plenty to do. Some week night league play would be awesome.
