This course has great scenery and shots. Most of it is set in a very hilly forest with the fairways carved out. The only this this course needs is newer baskets and better signs and it would be a 5/5.

Great elevation and trees. Love the terrain. Old baskets in declining shape, missing and unclear signage (bring the map) and rutted dirt tees keep it from being a solid 4.5 rated course. Very much worth the committed effort to do an upgrade by a local club.

Great course but the signs need improving and the end of the course is extremely confusing. In 2014 it was being upgraded with nice new baskets and tees so perhaps it will be better once completed.

Very solid course in a beautiful park. The par is over estimated imo. Everything plays more a par 3 for the average recreational player than the 4s and 5s they have listed at times. Still, challenging through the woods with elevation and interesting basket placement. Wear your waterproof shoes, if it’s been raining or snowing, the low areas are swampy.
