5 Helpful / 4 Not
Pros: Variety of shots, elevation changes.
Cons: Layout is terrible.
Layout is dangerous.
Layout is confusing.
Other Thoughts: Fairways should never cross public pedestrian paths. Ever.
Tee boxes should never be in the previous basket's landing area. Ever. For any reason.
Fairways should not cross each other. Ever. For any reason.
If you can't follow the above rules and design the shots you want, you are building your course in the wrong place. End of story.

I also don't like seeing fairways that share space with playing fields (like the baseball field you have to throw across on whatever hole it is - 9 and 18 maybe?). Basically what you are saying is that the course can only be played safely when nobody else is using the park.

The confusing part is my own fault for not printing off a map beforehand, but I'm pretty experienced at finding my way around DG courses. Also I was in the area during the 2 weeks a year when it is wet enough that mud is an issue so I won't de-rate the course for that, but it would have been nice to have defined tee boxes with some sort of erosion control.

Hole 4/12 or whatever all it is supposed to be is just awful. If the tee box for hole 5 is outside the 10m putting radius for hole 3 basket, it isn't by much. This is just terrible course design and is repeated throughout the course. It's a shame because it is a beautiful park.
