Pros: Nice little park with thick grass. Other activities include a water pad (for the summer) playground and a nice skate/board/bike bowl. Super easy course and actually a Par 2 setup. Kiosk is a plus. You'll only need a mid range and a putter.
Cons: No tee pads as listed and very short holes, and I am a rec player. You'll only need a mid range and a putter. Par 2 course and only 6 holes.
Other Thoughts: Great for workin on your short game while the kids are doin other things in the park. Longest hole (6) is under 250. 15 minutes per round. Great place to intro somebody to the sport.

Pros: There is a kiosk at the start with with a map and some information. Don't believe everything it says. It'll tell you a story about the concrete tee pads and where they're at. It's a lie. There are no concrete tee pads. You just play from basket to basket.

The park features restrooms, three basketball courts, two sand pitted volleyball courts, picnic area and playground areas. It's flat with a few mature trees for obstacles. There are six DGA baskets with the red numbers on top scattered throughout this small park. There are no signs of any tee signs. The lengths seem to be from about 200 feet to maybe 350?
Cons: It's basically a small recreational course without signs, teepads and only six baskets. It's the only game in town and the baskets catch well enough. Only on # 6, do you have much chance of conflicting with any of the park's activities and that's probably only if the wind blows your drive into the volleyball court.
# 6 basket is a ways away from the kiosk and # 1 where you started.
Two or three baskets are mounted a little lower than regulation height.
Other Thoughts: It was a quick easy little "get" for a dedicated course bagger such as myself.

If I lived in Artesia, I'd play it and make up all kinds of alternative tees and games to keep myself amused. I'd probably be a better player playing in the wind than I currently am.
