Surprisingly diverse 9hole
Pros: Very well maintained/manicured, so far at least.
Full restroom on site
Course map at start
Plenty of parking
Hard to get lost or lose a disc
Cons: Proximity to I-30 means a lot of freeway noise
Some tees a little too close to previous basket, some steps taken to mitigate the risk though(chain link fence)
No alcohol permitted, also a pro
Other Thoughts: I'm excited this course is basically in my backyard, I'll be playing it all the time. Course is suppose to be available to play 24/7!
Overall I think it's a really fun course. Every hole is a potential birdie for me which means it's probably a bit on the easy side, my best round so far was -4. It plays very quickly given the short walks from basket to next tee, and lack of disc searching required. Could probably use a trashcan between 2 and 5's tees.
Hole 1: If you can throw a mid or putter 280ft low, dead straight then you're gold!
There's a tree 1/3 of the way down the fairway just to the left. The basket is surrounded by thick trees/brush with a small maybe 10-15ft wide gap in the front. The left side seems to be the easier entry to the green as it isn't as thick. For me, a forehand anny flex with OS mid or fairway seemed to do the best. Hitting the left trees gave me a 12-20ft put under some low branches or straddle.
Hole 2: Really neat. Throwing under some trees off the tee, but over a stage that sits about 5ft up gives this a nice tight window to hit. I heard someone aced it already! I also experimented with an os driver skip off to the right but couldn't get much closer than 40ft with a big skip.
Hole 3: Big tree right in front of you, play a hyzer either side for an easy birdie, FH seemed easier but that might just be because of the reference points of a tree and fence protecting the next tee to work with. OB fence/houses on right but only comes in to play if you WTF Richard it. The basket is really close to 4's tee. There is a chain link on the left side of 4's tee that will block 99% of RHBH hyzers, but a FH or lefty hyzer that is slightly shanked/thrown low won't be stopped from hitting people on the tee.
Hole 4: Listed as 335 with a well sized shed just outside the circle guarding the front of the green from RHBH approach. Big arm can throw hyzer around, I just pump it and hope to get far enough to past the shed for a long look. FH/LHBH hyzer could work but couple low branches you gotta get under close to the green. Very slight incline.
Hole 5: Basically the reverse of hole 4, 3 trees just short and right of basket, but no low branches and very accessible green. Listed as 369 but didn't feel like it even given the slight decline.
Hole 6: Listed as 364ft but again doesn't seem that long. Tree wall+ rough on right is trouble for a shanked drive.
Hole 7: Open 250ft to island green with elevated basket. Island seems a bit larger than putting circle.
Hole 8: Very fair width tunnel shot with basket just to the left at end of tunnel. You learned to throw this shot early on RHBH, surely you can consistently birdie this one!
Hole 9: Really short, water "hazard" perpendicular to the tee, there's trees blocking the straight shot, so pick either the left or right gap. Left gap seemed to leave a more open put as right gap had a low branch or 2 and trees just short of the basket.

Great 9 Hole
Pros: Great new course. Easy to play. Nothing to hard or too easy as other 9 holes. Good variety super clean. I hope on a church people will not litter or drink. Great family or beginner course. No lost disc holes. Great baskets and teespads and will always be mowed.
So new you can smell new wood on bridges. Its a very great course.
Cons: They will put up signs and maps just give them time.
Also a few mondos on 1 and 2 may help for fun only.
Other Thoughts: Use address if you miss it turn around is hard. Disc course is on south side of church parking lot with 1 on south west side.
Church members came out to help with course layout. Super nice and didn't even push service. Very nice members and church people. Very welcoming.
#7 they want you to land in circle all else O.B.
