Pros: An extremely challenging course with narrow fairways and an unforgiving forest. New growth trees and bushes will create havoc for any errant shot. Most drives are blind shots except for 1 and 12. Hairpin doglakes are the primary feature on many holes. All tees are well marked and baskets are in good shape. The short distances will make this a good course for novices but skilled players will need all their tricks to par if playing "3's". This is one of the most under-rated courses in the state.
Cons: The major con is the attraction: it's an extraordinary difficult course. Frustration is featured on every drive. Also, after a heavy rain, some drives can be soggy or have a pond in the fairway. Drives 2,3 and 6 are most prone to being sloppy. Only four drives are open and can still be problematic and those looking for a big shots will be disappointed. The longest shot is 333'. Lastly, this course is almost unplayable in the summer because the forest closes in on the fairways making successful drives more about luck than skill.
Other Thoughts: Summit needs to be manicured. Occasionally a new tree may take up a shot line and will have to be trimmed. The warm-up basket is conveniently placed right next to the tee of one. Also, the soccer and baseball fields can be used to work on drives. At Summit, disc selection is crucial and mid-ranges might be the best bet. Color should be considered as well. Avoid using green and yellow during the summer. For a hole by hole analysis, click hole info and then click hole tips.
