Short but challenging, with water coming into play on several holes. Hole 4 is back across the river. Holes 5 and 6 in woods at the Northeastern edge of the course. Hole 9 short tee is on walking loop to basket near river's edge, long tee is to the left of basket on 8 in the woods. Dual tees on every hole creating an almost completely different look for each one. While it's not 18, it's one of the best 9 hole courses around. *New updates in 2020 include: -hole 1 drainage improvement around basket -hole 2 walking path paved, drainage near long tee -hole 4 short tee moved backwards to grill pavement, long tee added (to the right of the short tee behind trees) -hole 5 long tee added behind short tee tucked in the woods -hole 6 short tee added to “walking path” on the left of long tee -hole 7 long tee added near curve in walking path (next to volleyball pit) -hole 9 long tee added to the left and back from basket on 8, there is a path at the top of the hill going into the woods *Caution: some drainage rocks on hole 9 are not sturdy, please use caution when crossing

Great for what's available. River could use some tlc and signage between tees would be great, but it's a beautiful park with some fun shots.
This course has some technicality to it but is not a "wooded" course. Yet every hole has trees to navigate so it's not an open course. There are 2.5 holes in the woods (5, 6, & long 9) and the river comes into play for 5 of the holes. They just updated it by adding new teepads on 1, 4-7, & 9 (either long, short, or both). I previously had rated this as 3.5 but with the updates it is at least a 4. It is still a 9 hole but with the updates to the course it can easily be played as 18.
