Pros: I actually liked the course overall, but there were some issues.
Cons: SIGNAGE IS NEEDED. So frustrating to stumble around between holes just to find the next tee box. Actually broke any rhythm of trying to play a reasonable round. I thought there were a couple of holes that had design issues and no clear way to achieve a birdie even if you had the talent for all kinds of throws.
Other Thoughts: Widen a couple of fairways just a bit. Reconsider pin locations on a couple or cut some trees and bushes for better access.

Easy to navigate, with yellow baskets and yellow next-tee signs, and nice map/scorecard.

Two nine-hole loops. Bathroom near tee-1.
It was a tight race between Bud Light, Keystone, and Budweiser as to which was the favourite of the litterbugs.

Single row-of-chains baskets. $3 to enter park.
Other Thoughts:
Course is carved out of the pines, and in/out of the open space, of a near-seaside state park. With an average length of ~250', and most holes being of walking-path width, this is a course about touch and control. Attributes you should expect to find include:

Tee areas: About 1/3rd of the tees were 6'x'9' concrete trapezoids, the remainder natural. Basic signs. Benches at every hole.

Elevation: quite flat throughout, only a few holes having a modicum of change.

Distances: only a couple of holes require you to really cut loose, but even on these, you have a left-side tree/brush line to avoid. Over 3/4ths fall into the 165'-265' range.

Tightness: While a few holes are open, typically along the right side, most are broad-to-narrow walking-path widths, defined by tall, thin pines, and their supporting brush.

Shot-shapes: A couple dead-straight, a couple S-shapes, a few righties, but the majority being straight-then-fade-left.

Favourite hole(s): #17/#14. Two similar (mirror-image) holes, 300'/333', requiring elongated S-shapes within mid-width fairways defined by tall, thin trees.

Nice course to work on your touch-game.

Pros: Good layout. Good distance on most holes. The front nine were great diving in and out of the woods.
Cons: Back nine got a little deep. A lot of long narrow winding fairways with disc eating woods on each side. No maps, and almost every basket was not within view from the tee. Alot of exploring to navigate this course. Dirt tees with roots screwing up your throw.
Other Thoughts: Bug spray is a must on this wood course. If you get off the fairway you will be burried in thorn bushes. Hole 11 was a thrill. It plays over a mud swamp and into a wooded cove. Bridge is necessary to get from tee to basket. Scared the crap out of my partner. The holes can get quite adventurous as you go deep into the woods. Luckily there are enough holes out of the woods to make this an enjoyable course.
