Pros: -Good variety in terms of right to left and vice versa holes
-Good use of limited elevation change
-Creek provides challenge, yet is shallow enough to still retrieve discs
-Nice long concrete teepads
-Baskets are in decent shape
-Navigation is relatively easy since the baskets are often next to the next teepad
Cons: -Tee signs are often missing
-All the holes besides hole 9 should be par 3s. The pars listed on the tee signs which are present are just ridiculous.
-The walk from hole 12 to hole 13 is the only not obvious/clear transition. A next tee sign would be nice
-The bridge on hole 17 needs to be replaced. Feels like its going to collapse the next time a big storm rolls around.
-Hole 7 is just a bad/boring hole. There are no trees whatsoever to contend with, so its way too easy and uninteresting. Just feels like a filler hole.
Other Thoughts: I had a fun time at this course, and all the holes (besides 7) have an interesting design that makes you think about your tee shot. Also, I really liked the way that they tightly guarded the baskets with the clusters of big trees. I would recommend this course to anyone throwing under 300 feet (like me), but I feel like this would just be a birdiefest for those with over 300 feet of distance.

Most holes offer a choice of lines to the basket.
Baskets were quite old - shallower, for sure, and seemingly of smaller diameter, when compared to modern baskets.
Other Thoughts:
With an average length a bit under 300', and only two holes > 350', the distances at this course are quite suitable for beginners/intermediates. Two-thirds of the course plays on grassy land that could be described as gently rolling, with large hardwoods scattered about, making the optimal lines to the basket not too difficult for a player to hit - and not inflicting much punishment if they're missed. Experienced players will likely have plenty of birdy opportunities, but the trees and minor elevation changes keep the holes from being too simple. Challenging holes include #11, with its tiny window 200' feet away; downslope #12 with left-side ob road and right-side woods; how-the-heck-am-I-gonna-play this - through woods? Up-n-over? Number-17; and upslope number-18, needing a sharp left after exiting the woods.

Fun course, with most holes suitable for those in the +/- intermediate range. The extra challenges found on the latter half of the course are a good introduction to what tougher courses might offer - including the "thrill" of searching for wayward discs in the thick bits of woods, brush, and undergrowth that define some of these fairways.
