Pros: Well maintained park
Bathrooms and water available, even had a water bottle filler
Effort is being put into improving the course
Back nine options
Cons: Wooded brick tee pads were dangerously slick on a couple holes
Red back 9 not yet finished and some holes need more clearing out, a few of them felt like just a basket on a hill side with the random rollaway potential
Other Thoughts: I had come through here years ago and played the original yellow layout and felt it an ok course but mainly just open distance shaping shots with not much else to offer. Was really pleased to see that a wooded back 9 has been added and actively worked on. The only real complaint I had was that the brick tee pads on a couple of holes were slicker than eel shyt, it's a shame because they are pretty cool and a lot of work went in to them with no way of knowing they would turn out that way.

The new holes still need some work but it's evident that's in progress, underbrush and tickets still need cleaning out but it's ongoing. Hole 17 seemed a little gimmicky to me but it's a simple one to play for par on, I wasn't a big fan of 18 either but really no other way to get one back to the parking lot. Area also seems to be shared with mountain bikers, not a con but something you should be aware of.

Overall it's a nice little course, I'm very interested in seeing how the newer back reds finish up and hope to get back out there this fall. Worth a stop if you're passing through the area.

Pros: 18 single tees mostly brick tees with a few holes consisting of rubber tees and a single position basket, and nice tee signs. Easy to navigate.

Front 9 plays through some cedars in mostly open meadow over rolling hills. Good mix of distances and lines and chances to throw some bombs and test your distance skills. Two sets of baskets on front 9 for more options.

Back 9 plays mostly through the woods over sloped elevation. Mostly short holes and tight technical lines testing your accuracy skills.

Combined these two 9's provide a good deal of variety. If you prefer more open style like the front nine, then you can play the yellow loop instead of red loop.

Lots of wildlife, deer, rabbits, groundhogs. Front nine is very pretty.
Cons: Single loop of 18 holes back to parking lot. Tees are not the best in wet conditions.

The mosquitoes were atrocious, had a cloud of them following me around. I'm sure ticks are out there as well. Bring bug spray.
Other Thoughts: I played the front nine to the Yellow DisCatcher baskets and then played the back nine Red course to the Chainstar baskets. I didn't have to time to play the back nine Yellow course, but I think I chose wisely because I typically prefer woods golf and more variety. Although I liked the front nine a little more, but I also played them to the Yellow baskets which is a little longer, and so I really played a mixed layout.

Overall I'd say this is a good course for most players and would recommend if in the area. Interesting layout with two separate back nines. For travelers this is not a destination, but a fun quick play for the most part and easy to pair this course with Timber Ridge.

Pros: Many reachable holes, most of which are visible from the tee.
A good mix of distances, elevation, open & wooded holes.
Nice tee signs.
Cons: Hole 16 had no fairway.
Hole 17 & 18's routes were very tight.
Brick teepads were very slick when wet, the rubber mats on some of them were even worse for slippage.
