Pros: This course has almost everything. long holes, short holes, open holes, tight holes, OB you cant go over and OB you must go over, as well as every line you can think of.

Allows and almost forces a veriety of different shots (backhand, sidearm, rollers, overhand, etc)

The front nine is beautiful, open, OB laiden, and can set you up for a great round or make you want to go home.

The back nine is wooded and makes any golfer pay for his/her mistakes, but still allows for a some birdie chances.

The course continues to improve with more alternate pin placements and tee pads.

There is a nice "clubhouse" near hole 1 which sets up perfect for tournements or parties. building is almost always open for a quick restroom or water break

There are no long walks between holes and the course is very easy to navigate.
Cons: Tee signs on the front nine are wonderful but need to be updated for the alt positions.

Back nine doesnt have tee signs which is unbelievable with all the work that they have done.
Other Thoughts: Rankin Lake is already a must play course amd the current expansion is only going to make it better.

They have placed large rocks at many of the tee pads as benches.

There is a kiosk going up at hole1 soon and the tee signs for the back nine will follow shortly after.

There are now even more alt pin locations as well as new concrete pads for 12 and 18

GDGC put on a great Ice Bowl and the park looked great
