This is one of the most difficult wooded courses I've ever played and yet I really enjoyed it. I look forward to playing it again when all of the snow melts. I got into too much trouble when using anything other than a putter with all of the branches, and the course was a little tricky to navigate the first time, but it was definitely worth a long drive to play here. Having long and short tees was really cool too.

Heavily wooded course. Great layout. Holes can be frustrating for beginners, like myself, but still have a blast playing.

They are pulling the baskets on October 8th till May. The tee pads that installed are a slip and trip hazard. Trees are located within one foot of tee pads. Poor sign locations, poor overall execution of what could have been a great course. This was not the fault of the designer, park management refused to follow instructions. Oh and if you see a angry little man out there brandishing a large handgun taking pictures, it's the park manager. Over three years and not complete.

Overall this course is to tightly wooded from the blue tee's but the trees make the red's that much more fun. No tee pads. Some of the signs are in poor locations. I would rate this course a B- except for it's winter play-ability. I love winter golf and this course stays well used all year round.

This course is epic! You will go through a roller coaster of emotions while playing it. Trees everywhere, tunnel shots that are a mile long, and even free range chickens running around on holes 13, 14 & 15. On hole 8 you emerge from the woods to shoot from the top of a hill, over a road to the basket 30' below. It's amazing! The campground is real nice too. It's worth the drive :)

Pretty nice course. Red tees are pretty easy and great if you don't have much time. Blue tees are a challenge. I hit alot of trees. The course is great, especially on hot days, since every hole except #8 and #9 are shaded. Worth checking out for any avid discer in the area.

One of my favorite course. I would give it a higher rating too if it had tee pads

Very fun course, tough for beginners.

THIS COURSE IS DANGEROUS. The tee pads are 4'x8' planters boxes that are 6" high and filled with gravel. They are uneven and slippery and difficult if you do run ups. The boxes and signs for the red tees are also in over half of the fairways so they become obstacles from the back tees. Some of the tee pads are placed directly next to trees or signs that you can smash your hand off of while on the tee box. Leaf cover hides roots and stumps that are trip hazards in the fairway. HERE IS THE DANGERO ...

Can't wait for the tee pads then a A+

Nice Course, Good Approach and Putt Red Tee Layout. Blue Tees is more of a challenge and technical. Needs some clean up, as the leaves can build up and discs can hide under making it tough to find at times. Overall I like it and only played 4 red rounds and a couple blues rounds in 2018 and 2021.

a very technical and wooded course a good amount of elevation, the tee pads are surprisingly flat for gravel pads, over all pretty good.

WORST COURSE EVER! Don't play here it's terrible. The county let some child molesting jack ass fuck this place up for everyone. Stay away.

A lot of short holes. Easy course.

Still pretty rough, lots of stumps to trip on has a ton of potential but maybe a few years before this course is up to par well done but nothing that really sets it apart no signature holes but still a great course particularly for this part of the state.
