Pros: This is a short but fun course set in a small town park. This park doesn't seem to get nearly as much traffic as the 9 hole course just down the street so this looks like a more suitable place for a course.

There are nice tee signs with photos of the hole from the tee with the basket marked and include the name of the hole and the distance in feet. There are small concrete tee pads. The course flows very well so no map is needed to get from one hole to the next.

Hole 14 has to be the signature hole on the course. It's 270 feet and an uphill anhyzer shot where the basket is tucked in between some pine trees. Very fun hole. Hole 4 plays over the creek which is pretty cool also.
Cons: Hole 7 gets my award for the most ridiculous hole I've ever played... EVER! The hole is only 118ft, but the trees are so close together the best you can hope for is to get halfway there on your drive. I've played my fair share of bad holes but this has to be the worst. Thankfully this is the only hole like this on the course.

The course is short with only about half the holes over 250ft. But it looks like this course is aimed more towards beginners and families so I didn't mind that it was so short. There is water very much in play on the first 4 holes, which isn't very beginner friendly.

The shot selection isn't that good as there is only one shot that forced an anhyzer shot for a RHBH player.

The concrete tee pads are the smallest I've ever seen, but most of the holes are so short you don't need much of a run up anyway. They are pretty close to the ground so it wasn't a problem for me to start off the back and step onto it for my first step.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to introduce new players to the game and for the locals, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to play here. If you're looking for more of a challenge go to St. Thomas.
