Pros: - Really good use of limited space and much improved from the previous layout. Lots of trees to improve your finesse shots and yet a couple of holes can still have the distance to let you wing it.

- Can be a 12 hole course if you play both A and B tees.

- Well mapped and easy to navigate.

- I've colliding with windows on the first hole and no one has come to yell at me or anything, so no worries it seems if you botch the first hole.
Cons: - Lots of tree stumps in the wooded area, watch your step or you'll face plant in the mud.

- A couple places get pretty soggy after it rains, could stand to have a retention hole somewhere. As this is a church's front yard, not sure how feasible that would be.
Other Thoughts: It's only 6 holes and I usually like to play longer courses than this one as I like a lot of variety and playing both tees at this course doesn't deliver that variety. However, if you need a quick fix for your golfing withdrawals this is a great course to play!

This course is surprisingly challenging for only 6 holes. No punches were pulled in making it as varied and fun as possible.

The designer really pays attention to detail and is open to criticism so I know this course will only get better with time!

Pros: Completely redesigned! Six holes, all with alternate tees, fits this course so much better. The A & B tees are clearly marked with painted posts, and distances have been added to each tee box as well. Baskets are now dug in and numbered. Two holes are heavily wooded, which adds a nice touch of difficulty. There are no more crossing fairways, and no more multiple use baskets and tees. Brand new course map now available online as well as printed copies up for grabs by tee box 1A.
Cons: Hole distances may be too short for some players, but with all the trees, I find this to be a challenging finesse course. Baskets are budget quality, but they get the job done. If it has rained recently, you might want to bring some mosquito spray. There have also been some reports of poison ivy in the wooded areas.
Other Thoughts: As one of the course designers, I have really tried to listen to the comments and reviews of MDGC, and I am proud to reintroduce the new and improved course. If you were dissatisfied with the old MDGC, please come back and give us another shot. And if you are a first timer... welcome!
