Pros: Great out of the way location, on a very nice piece of quiet property. Layout is potentially very sweet, and so far with not a ton invested it is already looking good. all 18 holes are in, and nice baskets are set up. Lots of rest stop benches and tables.

**Update** as of June 24,2012 tee pads are in for about 13-14 holes. Course was trimmed up a bit too and looked very nice.
Cons: As stated in other reviews - navigation is tough on some holes. For the most part its easy enough to scout out, but there are a couple of holes where the tee is unmarked - 9/10 and 18 are worst.

Also - the wooded back nine is very tight in pathing, could use some trimming.
Other Thoughts: Print out a map from the links here before you play the first time, it will help a ton.

--property/aesthetic--nice piece of property behind an episcopal church. plenty of cactus(odd that we're so far from the lake) pine forest.

--baskets--nice DGA's. Grippy with orange bands on the riser.

--maps--available at the start, nice but I think some of the tees have changed

Cons: --NAVIGATION--in huge letters because it was a disaster. Trying to find where pins for the tees are is nightmarish in places. (which bleeds into..)

--Fairways--there are no definite fairways on over 50% of the holes. Makes navigation impossible in places (which bleeds into...)

--Signage/tees--Signage is missing on over 50% of the tees which makes the tees (which are just kick strips, sometimes, flags others) somewhat impossible to find. Prime example is #9 to #10. I ended up throwing to #11's baskets because it was the only one that made sense looking at a solid wall of trees but apparently you're supposed to muddle your way through big bushy pine trees (newb-hyzer style?) to a basket around the woods in a sand pit!?!? So confusing. The map did help in places in others, not so much

--Back 9--as has been said before, the back 9 sucks. throwing down 7' lanes of pre-planned trees with a 7'ceiling for >400' is redonkulous and stupid
Other Thoughts: the potential this place has is astounding, it just hasn't realized it yet. when it does, it should be a really quite good course!

also, updated the location from shelbyville to orangeville since the orangeville sign is 5' from the entrance to the church.
