This park has been redesigned and is much improved over the solid F rating it was before. It is a city park with ballfield's etc. and the river running along side of it. Not much to work with. Most holes start or end or go along side the river as it is the only thing to make use of and hole 10 is about 1/3 of a mile from 9's basket, making it a tale of two different 9's. I got in my truck and drove over to do the second 9. Holes 1, 2, 10, and 12 have elevation changes with 12 being my signature ...

Really really close to being a great course. Front nine is open and somewhat long on a few holes. Other holes are pretty risky shots at times right next to the river. Back nine seems pretty unfinished. The course in general needs way better signage. Overall It was a cool course to check out, and I didn’t feel like any holes were unfair. Add some signage, and maybe move a few baskets to make a variety of left, right, and straight shots, and I think this would be a great course!

I really enjoyed playing this course for the first time this past Tuesday. A lot of the holes are easily reachable but the added pressure of the water next to each hole definitely makes them difficult to attack. My biggest complaint is the lack of signage. If you are not a local it would be quite the search to find the tee for #10. Some of the holes in the woods on the back nine could be cleaned up a bit but other than that it was a solid course! Might be some of the best tee pads I've seen...especially with the mulch surrounding them.

Going to be a very nice course and well thought out for the space given. Very neat holes and nice to air out on the front 9. 11 through 15 need work just a simple weedwacker and some clippers with a couple dudes would solve most all the problem. Just very bushy and overgrown people are going to be getting poison ivy and such on those select Holes. Otherwise very neat course love hole 10!!

This course is very different from almost anything else I've played. The front nine is very wide open, testing your accuracy with a hyper, with a couple flat out crushes. Then, after the hike down the road, the back 9 opens up to some more technical, wooded shots. With a handful being grab your straightest putter and just try to throw it as straight as you can. Some of the holes need some teepads as some of them are dirty or just mulch, but once that is remedied this could really become a standout course with some TLC.

This being my local course, I've got a soft spot for it. The front nine is very open and a couple holes really give you a chance to let it rip. Approximately 4 of the holes on the front nine are right on the river and if you don't play your shot right, you could end up losing a disc to the water. Not impossible to wade into, but it gets a little deep in some spots. The back nine is a little more varied in the holes. 10 had a large power pole that you need to navigate around as well as p ...
