Other Thoughts: Lums Pond is a shorter wooded course that plays into, out of, and mostly through the woods near the water in a nice state park. It is a decent wooded course with a little bit of variety and some fun holes, but there aren't any standout memorable holes and it can't compete with some of the more challenging wooded courses in the extended area. My friend and I played this course after playing Iron Hill, and after a quick round we headed back to Iron Hill for our next round.

It is a decent course and not a bad option to mix things up, but having played it once I do not feel the need to play it again, especially given the other options in the area.

Pros: Concrete tee pads. Some holes are interesting and requires a variety of shots. Course has been around for at least 20 yrs. pine woods cover most of the course
Cons: Some holes have not stood up to time, matured trees have made some approaches very difficult and almost comical.

 Beginner's Luck

Pros: This course really tests your accuracy and creativity with different types of shots. You will find yourself in positions that require all the shots you know how to throw and some that you don't (or at least I don't yet). Most of the tee pads are still in great shape and most of the baskets are standing the test of time. This course also has dual practice baskets that allows a player to practice his approach and putting. It is nice the way that the park rotates the baskets to the alternate position every now and then. This give a casual round a new wrinkle.
Cons: I call this review beginner's luck because there are several holes on this course where it truly doesn't seem to matter whether you are experienced or not. I understand tight fairways but holes 6, 9 and 12 are ridiculous. A great throw can either just miss the trees and land in position for a birdie try or slam directly into one of the many trees in its path and set up a bogey. Most of the tee signs are old and need to be replaced due to vandalism the course changing or just age.
Other Thoughts: This is my "home" course and I have played it quite a few times. It is a great place to go if you just want to get a quick 18 holes. It takes less than an hour solo and just a little longer with a group. The park also has a couple of football fields which are great for a little field practice after a round. The park also has many other amenities (playground, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, trails, paddle boats and decent fishing) if you need to distract your family members while you play.
