Bad maintenance = wasted potential

Pros: -some interesting holes that allow you to throw fun shots
-mostly disc-golf exclusive. There is a walking trail that runs along the river, but it's almost always out of play
-easily navigable
-good signage
Cons: -Unfortunately this course gets extremely overgrown in the summer and there is almost never any actual maintenance done except by local members who get sick of all the crap in the fairways. Lines can get almost nonexistent, and the amount of brush and hanging branches that ruin what should be good shots gets a bit ridiculous and extremely frustrating. The grass is almost never mowed, either.
-Rough is EXTREMELY think and dense and there is far more of it than fairway. Very easy to lose discs here.
-The Mach 3 baskets here are probably the worst baskets I have ever played on. The model sucks to begin with, but add in that these things are extremely old, worn, and bent, and it often seems like good puts are more likely to spit out than stay in.
-The local alcoholic likes to bug players and ride his bike around in the fairways while people are playing
-Course is usually super crowded
-Some really bad hole design in a few places
Other Thoughts: This really would be a nice course if there was actual maintenance done and it wasn't so overgrown all the time. Even in the fall/winter/spring when the foliage is down, there are waaaayyyy to many unkempt branches that just ruin what should be the lines at the hole. It just keeps getting worse, and until someone comes in and spends about a month fixing this place up, it's going to be a straight-up jungle in about 2 years. This course really needs to take a page out of the nearby Wickes' book. Creating actual lines about a year ago on holes that had none (cutting out spray n pray trees), filling in low areas with mulch and stones, and consistent maintenance has turned that course into a premier course when it was just a usual municipal course. The potential is here for for this course to make the same turnaround, but it's going to take some serious TLC.

Pros: Mix of long and short, left and right with trees everywhere makes this course challenging.
Cons: Oh The Locals. There is a college near by, and a lot of the students have taken it upon themselves to dump over garbage cans, uproot signage and even the cages. The course is constantly a mess and full of mob golfers not letting groups through.
Other Thoughts: This course is a hard course to play. But it is also a fun course.
