 Short Beginner Friendly Course

2-4    6/10/2014   6/10/2014
Review By: Timeetyo
Played: 41  Reviewed: 33  Exp: 3.6 Years
Pros: - A good variety of shot types
- Rubber tee pads for longs are ok as long as they aren't wet.
- Next tee arrows on trees & White markers for each hole made navigation easy (although I did check the map a few times my first time through)
- Park is nice & clean and well maintained.
- Bathrooms on site
- Very few chances to lose a disc
Cons: - Short tees are listed, but I couldn't find them. There are a few that are apparently the same as the longs but I only find ONE short tee (hole 4 I think) and I spent ~5 mins looking for the short tee on holes 1&2 with no luck. Why even list short tees if they aren't marked. Would be much nicer to bring the wife / kid along if the short tees were easy to locate.
- Tee signs would be nice.
- Some safety concerns with crossing fairways and a few holes packed in VERY tight. For example hole 4 & 5 are at 90* from each other with 4 ending just inside the tree line. Hole 5's tee is ~50' to the right of the fairway (looking at the pin) and throws completely across it down the tree line. This crosses fairways and has your drive from 5 going right over the short side of the circle for 4. Not sure what they were thinking here trying to get in a little extra length. Another fun one is hole 14's teepad & hole 18. When throwing a FH line for 18 I watched my drive go RIGHT over the teepad for 14 and fade back to the pin. There is no way I'd throw a drive from either of those if another group was on the respective hole (I won't tee from 5 if anyone is approaching 4 nor throw from 18 if anyone is on the 14 teebox). There are a few others that are closer than comfortable but they aren't as bad as those 2.
- On the short side - especially the back 9
Other Thoughts: Overall a typical park course that does a decent job of making some interesting holes & approaches, just keep in mind par is very generous here. Lots of ace runs and you will use a good variety of shots. I can't get past the safety issues and there are many other (better) courses that I'd rather be at in the area.

 Great course for beginners and practicing you drives!

Pros: - Can be played very quickly. Two people can play in about an hour
- Some nice wide open holes to really fling your discs on
- Not many chances to lose discs
- Lots of short holes for ace opportunities
- Despite pretty wide open holes there are enough trees so that some control is involved. Most shots even if their bad wont kill you.
- Good confidence builder
- Multiple tees pretty well marked in ground, but not necessary because course is so short
- Pretty fun for a park course
- Bathrooms open during summer near parking lot
Cons: - It can be difficult to navigate if you haven't played before
- Some tee markers (on the tees or on the trees) and some baskets may be wrong because of recent course redesign
- No good signs with description of hole and some flypads may be missing at some holes.
- Sometimes town soccer can cut awfully near to the course
- Some discrepancy between where the tees
are at some holes because of redesign
- Not difficult enough to be a pro-level course
Other Thoughts: This is a very good course to bring beginners to because of the low frustration level and very minimal chance of losing discs. It is also is fun for average players and good players who don't mind a quick relaxing round of golf. Once the tee issues are fixed along with maybe some good signs this is definitely a 3 course.

Pros: Great use of trees to force a variety of shots. New rubber tee pads installed. Not crowded.
Cons: Not easy to navigate first time out. Some tee pads seem to have been moved from different holes, so the yardage is incorrect.
Other Thoughts: Great for those without long drives. Play it as a par 3.

 Holes are a challenge, pars are not.

Pros: Some deceptively fun holes in a nice park.
Cons: No teepads, holes are only marked with small colored plaques on the ground. Can make it a challenge the first time navigating. The natural tees are in fairly decent shape, however.

Pars are REALLY easy. There's a par 5 on a 250-300 ft hole. I've double eagled it, and shouldn't be able to.
Other Thoughts: When we first pulled into the parking lot we all groaned. Wide open field with baskets. Great. Playing the course, however swayed us and made it worth a trip back. There's little to no elevation changes, but the course designer did a great jog of working with the obstacles he had. There always seems to be a tree where you want to throw, but there's always a path to be found... Often a fairly challenging and rewarding shot. Play it as par 3's, however to challenge you scorecard.

Worth a trip: If you're in the area playing another course, you could throw a quick and rewarding round here, but I wouldn't make the trip for this course alone.

Pros: Well mowed, baskets are in great shape (especially since they're rather old) Bunch of old growth trees placed directly in your way.
Cons: Rather easy course...Someone called it Ellison without the hill, and the trees spread out across the entire course. Point taken.

If you're looking for a tournament caliber course, this isn't it.

Tees are marked on the ground and on some trees, can be hard to find and the back and forth layout is a bit strange at first.

a very few of the baskets have been placed in the wrong slots...and they're all right near eachother making it really confusing...bring a map.
Other Thoughts: If you're not a snob and you don't need cement pads and luxuries and a perfect layout, then you'll make some fun on this course.

I enjoy it, I'd play it, and I'd be glad to have it in my hometown...but as it stands it's one of the farther away courses in the area and simply doesn't have as much to offer as Parma and Basil...or even MCC.

But this course has no deal breaker type flaws. If you're looking for some place else to play, or you're passing through...stop by and play.

If you're in the area for a short time and want to play some courses...hit up Parma/Basil/MCC/Widener/Ellison instead.

Pros: variety of hole types from long and wide open to short and technical.

a number of ace-run holes keep playing here exciting.

very little places to lose plastic.

multiple hole placements throughout the year mix it up periodically.

pretty open throughout most of the course really gives you a chance to open up and sling some long drives.

pretty no-nonsense layout make it great for practice, a misplaced drive isn't going to kill your score here.
Cons: seasonal, baskets are only in from april to november. would be a great course for winter play.

typically windy, great for drives but sometimes it can really effect your up-game.

parts of the course can be wet until about mid-july.

difficult to navigave unless you've been here before, tees are plates on the ground, some of them have trees with numbers by them. be sure to bring a map your first time here, or email me, i'm listed as a guide.
Other Thoughts: this course is typically not very busy. its a really nice course to just go and throw for the sake of throwing. other than that, its not much to write home about. kind of a forgotten course of the rochester area, definitely not one of the more popular ones but still enjoyable. lots of chances for aces here, fun to play a second round at after playing weidner park.

 Easy Play, tough navigation

Pros: Beautiful, very clean park to play in. Lots of birdie holes here. Nice use of mature trees and stream on front nine. Back nine is a lot tighter with more trees.
Cons: Not very well marked tee boxes. Metal plates sit flush with ground and no signs to let you know where the hole goes.
Other Thoughts: Very short course. Only one really long hole, #4 i think, to let your arm loose. #15 is was just kind of crammed in and is not a very fun hole. There are a bunch of good holes here though so give it a try.

Pros: Fairly open, park setting. Possible for relative newbies to get respectable score, but can be deceptively challenging including lots of trees (force accuracy or luck) and a stream or roads that can come into play.
Cons: Trees are frustrating. No signage nor maps available. Tees marked by metal plaques on ground, distances written on some very doubtful. Some poison ivy in/around woods and also on park trees.
Other Thoughts: Fortunately there were plenty of arrows spray painted on the lawn to lead me from the basket to the next tee. New pin placements on a few, including #5 which is now closer to road (be careful lefties & right sidearms). I wasn't always sure which target was correct, especially #17 - can't see basket from tee, tee faces #18. Spotter might help on tee shot out of woods when basket out of sight (at least for inconsistent tossers like me).

Pros: Pars can be made even by us not-so-good players. Like the mix of open field (1-5) and progressively tree filled fields (6-14) only true woods hole is the short 15.
Cons: Hardly any elevation changes. I've played it 1/2 dozen or so times and seems to be always windy which wreks havoc on my forehand drive. Course quite soggy still in the beginning of May
Other Thoughts: Agree with other reviewers - tough to find tees if you don't know the course. Tee pads or sign posts would be helpful.
