Pros: The front nine of this course offers a decent amount of variety and is well laid out.

There are holes that you can stretch your arm out with and others that accuracy plays more of a role. Water also is in play well for risk/reward type of shots.

It is well maintained by the park employees.
Cons: The water on this course makes it unappealing to many casual players, since a disc is pretty much gone if it goes in.

When it was first put in, it was monotonous to play but the first changes made it FAR more enjoyable. The latest changes however took away a couple of my favorite holes and replaced them with holes that are dull. Definitely not digging them...

There are not any trash cans, benches, tee signs, map, etc. but the course is still a work in progress and some of these things are being made so I'm not considering these into the score.

Dead fish smell/pond smell is kinda raunchy at times.
Other Thoughts: This course before the latest changes would have been a 4-ish in my opinion, but hopefully the changes are not permanent.

It is a very underutilized course, but again I think that it is mostly just the chance of losing a disc that keeps people away.

McFarland and Veterans complement each other nicely (especially before the last changes) and make for a great day of golf. It is great having another course in Florence and I really appreciate all the work James Burton, Jack White, and everyone else have put into it.
