 Well, at least there are baskets.

Pros: NIce baskets. Unfortunately that is about it.
Cons: No signage at all on this course. Teepads appear to be a small area of gravel that are very difficult to locate. Navigation is a big issue. You might be better off just making up your own holes. Seven's teepad hard to locate. The last few holes have some trees to increase the challenge, but the rest is wide open. Actually on the high school grounds, so this could be an issue as far as playing.
Other Thoughts: I have difficulty even saying this is a good course for new players because they may never play another round again. No real challenge, incredibly difficult to navigate and boring. I suppose you could always grab some putters and practice, otherwise, just pass on this one.

 Not what I expected

Pros: The last 3 holes aren't bad. They play around a creek and lake.
Cons: The course was littered like crazy. It's the first thing I noticed. The kids from the high school there just throw their trash everywhere, and hole 7 & 8 are pretty bad.
Hole #1 is hard to find because there are NO TEEPADS and NO TEESIGNS. I'll admit I noticed very vague spots of gravel mixed with grass that appeared as if they were intended to be a teepad on a few holes. I never found a teepad for #3... I'm pretty sure it washed away. The basket for #1 is badly vandalized. You have to walk around the entire property to get to certain locations because of a lack of gates on the fence that runs around.
Other Thoughts: Somebody needs to pick up the trash. The course plays around the property of a private catholic school. The kids pay tuition and everything is very nice... except the frolf course. You would think that they would keep the property clean.

 Great 9-Hole

Pros: Great ingenuity on hole placements, and cool tee off locations. The last three holes add most of the challenge, #7 driving across the lake, #8 with a tough 2nd shot wrapping around to a clearing near the creek and #9 driving over the creek but under the bridge. Although there are no marked tee pads or signs its easy to navigate your way through the course for the most part
Cons: No designated markings for where tee pads are, relatively short and easy. Very boring for the first 6 holes. Also a long walk from hole 6 to hole 7, they could've elongated the earlier holes to make them more challenging and less boring so then basket 6 is closer to the "tee pad" on 7
