Pros: -Nice baskets with numbers on top for easy identification
-Course map at the start near the parking lot and first tee box
-No open holes, every hole had some challenge. Many had significant amounts of trees that made you hit a certain line
-The limited elevation at the park was used well, hole 3 is a nice downhill shot
-The course was pretty easy to follow, the map shows no gap between hole 2 and 3 but there was one. Just follow the wooded path then go up the hill once in the clearing. There are a few next tee signs to help guide as well.
-A few tricky greens provided good challenge. Hole 4 sat just past a hillside
Cons: -Lots and lots of bugs including ticks, ants, horse and deer flys, and mosquitos.
-Poison ivy and a few nettles on the course. The fairways are not very well mowed so even a decent shot could land near poison ivy
-Not a ton of length to this course, intermediate in that aspect
-The tees are natural and very sandy, not the best
-Could lose a disc on a few holes here
-No signage on each hole so you may have to scout for a few blind tees
Other Thoughts: I think I would have given this course a 3 without the bugs, and plants. I am fairly allergic to poison ivy and nobody likes bugs. It is harder to enjoy a round when you are trying to avoid getting posion ivy or slapping bugs. I did enjoy the layout of the course and the challenge that it offered. I would maybe come play here in the late fall or spring before the bugs hatch and plants grow. It would be much more enjoyable. For TC residents I wouldn't come up here and play unless it was during one of those times.
