Pros: A nice quick 9 hole course in a neighborhood park that has half open field shots and half alongside tree lines or through some light woods.
I've only played since September, but have never had traffic here.
Good design for beginners to rec players to go at a par three. Only two of the holes will be real challenges: #3 is a big enough uphill to stretch your arm a bit, and #6 forces a decision if you can't easily throw 300': risk having to trek down into the wetland bowl area between the tee and the basket..., or lay up right...?
Cons: The lack of good signage and the missing #7 tee make for some confusion playing the course as designed. I've occasionally gone 'safari' here, shooting basket to basket, and getting creative.
The mud tee ruts (can't call them tee pads, really) make for hazardous footing on your drives, so it's good there aren't any really long holes.
Other Thoughts: The park has limited amenities (no trash baskets or benches on the course, but you're 5 minutes from a dozen fast food joints (and their restrooms) on Ohio Pike.
Edit: with a little more experience now, I had to realistically lower my rating for Amelia from 2 to 1.5 ('passable').
