Very challenging course! Definately the best course in the area.

Beautiful expansive park, challenging course, and a great place to spend the day. Heavily wooded holes, lots of sharp doglegs, and a handful of long open bombs.....this course mixes it up nicely. Fairly long overall and a true test to critical thinking and placement. Rubber tees work well. Biggest drawback is lack of signage and directional arrows between holes. There are a few long walks spaced between holes throughout the course, had to keep pulling up the map on my phone. Anyone who calls this their home course should be proud.

I wouldn't make the trip from out of town...yet...it may be better one day. After the first six holes on this course, you will feel like you are playing the most technical course in the world! Memorable holes and layouts - every bit as challenging as Idlewild in the north. Then...there is a significant dropoff in the quality of holes... The layout of the course is confusing, with signage markers knocked down or missing on several holes. I actually gave up after hole 12 because I was sick ...

Challenging course with an even mix of open and wooded holes. Typically taken care of nicely. Some nice scenic holes (3/12/14/15).

Great long fairways and layout of holes. Tee pads are concrete and in great shape as it is a newer (2014) course. nice hyzer shots, hidden turns, wooded to open rolling hills and elevation changes make it challenging and fun. alot of walking yes but not bad. going from 10 to 11 was a little challenging and no marker at 11. real long shot btw. Wish i had time to play it again. Can't wait to come back for more.

A great course, very difficult. If your not a very accurate thrower I would say wear long clothes to avoid poison ivy. Long holes, lots of walking tho.

Very challenging, missing about 4 tee signs, and the park was extremely crowded in the afternoon. People not playing were walking dogs through course, and having picnics in the fairway, and one literally set a hammock up across hole 6 fairway.

Pros - well kept, layout is ok, never overly crowded with players
Cons - the signage is poor, if its your first time there, you will get lost. Some of the holes don't make sense, like holes 7 and 13. There will always be a non-player roaming some of the holes, in a hammock or having a picnic on a fairway.

This is a very good course. Well kept. Regular size concrete tee pads. Good variety of holes. Probably my favorite course in the area.

The course was super fun. Well designed, clean, all concrete pads. You do need a map the first time, we found one on our phones. I can see how the park may get busy on the weekend but midweek was quiet, and quick round!
