Pros: It's extremely convenient, right off the highway and pretty solid in aesthetics. If you can ignore the highway noise, and look in the opposite direction, there are some nice views of the inlet and the harbor and buildings on the other side of the water. The park itself is very attractive and well-kept. There is even a small pond which makes a nice beginner-level carry. That was a pretty cool hole.
Cons: This course is not easy to play. Without a map, it's safari only. There is no logical way to tell which basket to throw at or from where. There are no tees or signs marking where to throw from. With a map, you can estimate a tee zone and at least identify the order to throw the baskets. But it's fairly arbitrary.
It's really a course without an audience. It's way to0 easy for players that have any control. There are no obstacles between tee and basket, (other than occasional walkers) and there is not a lot of distance. OK, there is wind. A lot of it. For new players, well, new players are probably the least able to figure out where to throw from and what order to play the baskets in. Moreover, the wind will make them hate the place, especially as some baskets are close to steep drop offs covered in thick vegetation.
Everything was mowed on my visit but if any of the areas surrounding the basket go unmowed for a while, the course will become absolutely unplayable for all potential players.
And yeah, pretty much all the fairways go directly over or along the walking paths.
Other Thoughts: Still, it looked like someone was building a tee for one of the holes. If that is true and tees go up on all of them, this becomes a much more playable course for rec players.
