Fun Local Course in Park
Pros: Good mix of elevation, and distance. Only one long hole 450-ish. The rest are mostly under 300, with a few between 300-400. Winds through woods and open fields around an old plantation looking home.
Cons: Not 100% clear how to navigate. The signage is plastic sheets that fall off and blow away. There are concrete Tees that are often unmarked completely.
Other Thoughts: Worth playing when on vacation in the Asheville area.

Great course if in the shorts
Pros: Most if all hole have some kind of alt/long pin for a different look. Could be finish left in one layout and right on another.
Benches on every hole and well needed with all the up and down the hills.
Tee boxes are level and aproprite size for the hole. None of them felt like you had to start way off the tee pad to complete a throw.
Baskets are top notch disc catcher that are easy to see in the woods.
Open holes do add a element of challenge with uphill, down hill and ob.
Cons: Long pins have a feeling of being long just to make a long course. Fairways for them in the woods on a couple of holes just don't make sense.
I don't feel like this is a con because you should pack out but no trashcans.
Other Thoughts: I got the chance to play a couple of rounds for the Greatful Jay tournament and was plesnely surprised on the quality of the course and the attention to grounds. I would love to rate it higher then a 3, however the long pins on a few holes just didn't need to be put in. Example: of hole six if I remember. In the short you have a tree that leans over the fairway to guard a rh hyzer route to the basket. When the pin is in the long tree is not needed and is more of a nuisance and doesn't make a real line.
Couple of other holes are similar in nature and just left a odd feeling.
Don't let that hold you back from playing Jackson. I loved the short/original layout more. Even in a hybrid layout of the two I would still enjoy it. I did say to a couple of people that just a tree down here and there and this would be a 4.0 easy. Im not one for slashing and hacking but love a defined fairway even if its tight. I just not a big fan of a smaller tree that just doesn't fit the look and feel.
I will be back to tame the beast of a course Jackson park can be. Maybe next time Ill have a higher rating feeling.
