Pros: I agree, good to introduce someone to the game. Open playing area, good if you want to learn long arm putting.
Cons: Cramped into a little section of a nice park. Hard to navigate course. Signage is present but not oriented well same with baskets. All holes are playable with your putter. You won't need anything else, so leave your bag in the car.
Other Thoughts: I'm a tough reviewer....Especially when there is so much potential for this place...If you are looking to have a good day out, pass this up unless you want a quick warm up or putting practice. Whoever the community officials were that laid this course out, should have called on some help. With so many other courses in this area to play, they could have made a field trip to several of them and got some creative ideas... There are beautiful acres of this little park that could have been used to spread the 9 holes out and incorporate some nice 300 ft - 400 ft drives. No hole is really over 200 ft. Even a newbie needs to be able to feel the power of a drive. The whole course is about 100 ft wide and about 800 ft long. They even have a marked par 4 on the course which is really a par 2. You should be able to lay up next the basket on every drive with a drop in putt. A gnome would have an easy day here. Keep on driving if you are anything over "beginner" level.
