Pros: - Bathrooms
- Water
- Nice location
- Nice Baskets
- Some Pads
- Decent Signage
Cons: - Similar Holes
- Shot variety is poor
- Most holes have no pads
Other Thoughts: The major flaw here is that you play the same hole over about 9 or 10 times. If you are good at a long straight on drive with a midrange shot then a put in the open on a side hill then this is the course for you! Good for intowners to practice at. Nothing special about this course. This things it has going for it don't bring it to a place where it would merit a trip back.

Pros: Very fun round!

You will have to use your whole bag to score well here.

There is a good variety in length. Most every hole is reachable in one with a good drive, including a few ace runs as well.

Good elevation change, both up and down; as well as some valley shots over the numerous ravines on the course.

The park is altogether kept very well, and the tee pads are in good shape.
Cons: The course is new (i think) and as such is severely lacking any sort of signage. Once you get onto the first tee you can probably find your way around the course with little trouble, but finding that first tee was a pain.

None of the tees have signs marking them, you simply need to look for the brick pavement on the ground. A simple 'next tee' arrow could be a quick navigation solution.

These lack of signs also means that your left figure out the distance and layout of each hole. They are short enough that you can judge the distances without much trouble, but it would still be nice to have the signs.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is DEFINITELY the place to play in Carrol. Would be nice to add some alternate tees so one could play a round of 18 without the addition of spendy baskets would be a nice option, but they definitely have the land to add a proper back 9.
