Pros: More elevation than you'll know what to do with, kinda scenic on top of the hill, Lots of trees
Cons: awkward in places, poor use of land and available elevation
Other Thoughts: I was licking my chops when I drove up to this course. So much elevation and trees available, it had to be a great course. What I soon learned was whatever potential this place had was severely underutilized.

The course starts on top of a tall hill where the opening hole bombs all the way to the bottom, about 100' vertical drop and the basket is tucked back up the hill hidden in some trees. Little chance for anything other than a drop-in 3 or you could try to punch it through the trees for a chance at 2.

From there, the course is one uninspired hole after the other. After #2 you are required to walk back along the fairway to the tee that is *in #2's fairway*. Then you are required to throw straight back up the hill on a slope that a billy goat would hate to climb. Not fun.

#4 is probably the best hole of the bunch as it throws a nice right to left shape along the ridge line with trees on both sides.

#5 is what I like to call a "J" hole. It's simply shaped like a J. You throw straight down a tunnel for 150' or so and then throw back to the basket tucked into some trees. Automatic 3. No real chance for birdie.

#7 is fairly interesting where you throw straight out for a couple hundred feet and then a 90 degree angle to the right and down to a basket on a steep slope.

#8 and #9 are ho-hum wide open shots to close out the round.

There is so much good land out there that this could have been one of the best 9-holers in the state. A few design tweaks could make that happen.
