More Edgeroad than Edgewater
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The 9 hole layout in Edgewater Park is kind of a fun add on to the 18 of Crestview across the street. It has a lot of OB that makes it tough. The creek divides the park down the center, and hole 3 crosses over it. A few short holes that you can shoot for birdies, and there is a couple of long par 3 holes, as well as one that is par 4.
The tees are natural, and marked with wooden headers in the ground at the front of the box. The baskets are Dynamic Veteran, and are in nice shape. Layout is not too hard to get around. Can be played quickly unless you lose a disc.
Hole 1 is mid range, about 200' and has a couple of big trees in front of the pin. A big hyzer throwing RHBH will get around them. The road is to the left side of the hole, but there is a decent cushion between the basket and the curb.
Hole 2 tees next to the street, plays at 360'. There is a bend to the left in the road with a telephone pole at the apex. You can play left of the pole and have a direct line over the pavement, or to the right over the grass. The pin is near the road and has a medium sized tree about 20' away to the right.
Number 3 is short, only 141", but the tee shot is over the creek, through a tunnel of tree branches. Knock downs can land at the bottom under the bridge, and you may have to jump down to retrieve that disc. If you make it through, there is a decent shot to make a birdie.
4 is not too long, barely over 200', but there is a big old tree with branches that hang pretty low. The straight line shot has to be on a rope, or you can play over the road to the left. If you try the left side, watch for the storm grate that is about pin high. It is perfectly located to catch a disc.
Hole 5 is 235, and there is one tree that stands slightly off center to the right. The only thing in the way of making a birdie. This is one of the easier holes on the course.
6 is a tougher one, measuring 300'. There is a road to the left of the tee, and a slight downhill slant on to the pin. The road dead ends right in front of the basket and has a lot of OB if you miss to the left.
Hole 7 is the par 4 hole, over 475'. It tees under the trees that line the creek side. The trees line the left side of the fairway, and it is mostly open to the right. There are a couple of scattered trees to keep you running up the center.
Hole 8 is another midrange, at 215'. There are trees to the left again, as you run along the other side of the creek in the opposite direction. Another pretty simple hole.
9 was my favorite hole. It is a good distance, 420", and plays over a dip in the grass between a couple of big mature trees. You can really let it rip, and there's a lot of room to fly with limited interference. The only holes that don't feel restricted by the boundaries of the park are 7, 8, and 9. The creek is to the left again, but there is more room for error as long as you don't totally shank it.
Cons: The tee boxes not marked really well, and I guessed on hole 6 because I didn't see the toe board. The grass in the boxes was bare and tees could be muddy after rain. I would prefer to see concrete tees and posts or signs of some sort.
Other Thoughts: It is a fun little course in Edgewater Park. A quick 9 if you don't have the time to play 18 at Crestview, or if you do have time and need some more. There are a few tricky shots. All of the OB will cost you strokes if you play the risky shots and do not execute.
I shot a 32, and my only birdie was on hole 5. Bogies on 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7. Took 3 penalties for going OB. Not a great showing, but I will get out there and try it again one day soon.

Pros: Course flows well with maximum use of land available. Technical course with ob on all but one hole in play some holes with ob left and right.
Cons: New course with nothing really bad to say other than if it is crowded you have to park across the street at the BMX course.
Other Thoughts: Great course across the street from Crestview course actually plays into a 27 hole course with Crestview gold.
