Pros: New course which is always a pro. Good parking area. Designed as a 'par' type course...two good throws and you should be putting. Course is designed for all types of shots from the tee boxes. One of the locals who played with us for awhile was using a Roc for his drives...straight on narrow course. Then Roc into basket for a putter to get his par. I think it worked very well for him.
Cons: Cons are it's not finished yet (but it is playable). Only hole 1 has a cement pad the other holes are just dirt. Signs are missing but the poles are at each pad. Expect signs to follow. We were lucky that two locals came along or we might have missed a hole or two. You have to back track on a few too many holes to get to the next holes tee box. If course is crowded this could be a little trouble. Piles of sticks and junk are all over the place. Had to climb into or over alot of them. Footing is not good when throwing from them.
Other Thoughts: I think this course will be great fun when the club finishes there upgrades. We came from Kitsap county which made it a very long drive. Next time we will play here then go back and play White River or Riverside or Lake Fenwick...hey maybe SeaTac.

Pros:
• Only course in the area
• There are a handful of fun shots
• 80% of the course layout is pretty intuitive
• Course loops back to parking lot
• Good course for rec players looking to play a rec round and to do their thing
Cons:
• Mosquito central
• Many fairways are not well designed :
Several fairways have obstacles requiring flex in spots that dont make sense for birdie runs, which means there arent good risk/reward choices from many tees.

Your options are lay up for pars, or poke and pray for ace/birdie runs that will often leave you searching for your disc in the...
• Heavy underbrush. Narrow fairways dont help the fact that the edges are uncleared pine debris and brush.
Other Thoughts:
This course will be a little better with the 'crete pads that were not poured when I played.

If you want to beat par, take your opportunities on the fairways that make sense, and dont try to force the wtf holes. Just hit your gaps and lay up like a boss.
