Pros: Some nice signs with hole layout and distance to pin(s). Nice cement tees, most are 3'x8', but some are 3'x6'. Nice DiscCatcher baskets with hole numbers on them. Several ace runs. Most holes birdie-able. Porta-potty (no tp) by hole 1. Restrooms by hole 10. A few holes play through a moderately wooded area with unforgiving rough. These holes are more technical requiring shot shaping. Some holes have new alternate pin positions making the holes longer. There is a wooded area of the park that could make for some additional and more challenging holes. Low traffic.
Cons: Some holes play close to one another. Most holes are pretty wide open. Some holes play close to one another. Boring back and forth layout for the first 7 holes of the course; holes feel very repetitive, all throwing straight. Some holes are very short and not challenging. Hole 18 ends in the middle of the park; not by hole 1 or the parking area. All holes throw straight or have a left hook, completely favoring RHBH/LHFH players. At hole 11 and for the remainder of the course it is wide open with only a small number of trees to shoot around. Little to no elevation change on the course. Only a few remotely challenging holes. Most baskets are not protected at all. Very poorly placed mando on hole 18, forcing a long late left hook.
Other Thoughts: This is a quick fun 18 hole course that offers a little challenge on a few holes, but is mostly very easy. It's a pretty boring round, even your first time playing. The course offers little to no shot variety as all holes throw straight or left. Hole 18 put the nail in the coffin for me that this course was clearly designed by a RHBH player that knows nothing of shot variety. The thickly wooded area just South of holes 16-19 could make for some nice additional, more technical (and challenging) holes, but the course right now is very easy and boring.
