Hawkins is pissa for a 9 hole course! The guy who is caring for it , is doing a fantastic job. Semi technical, semi open this course will challenge beginners as well as pros. Good balance between short and long wholes as well as left and right directions on which the fairways travel

I understand that wooded fairways make for an interesting/challenging round, but the brush here is far too thick and full of thorns for it to be enjoyable. I've given this course multiple tries but have had a miserable experience each time. They need to clear out the brush, at least most of the thorn bushes.
