I shot even from the long pads, including the framed gravel Hole #2 long (I think that 5-7 under is ideal for an advanced am). I started a second round at -3 but quit, I will explain later.
- Great course for a small town
- Great job on the signs, benches, and bench pad; you guys will have very little erosion problems because of these
- Great use of the stream
- Tough greens
- Holes # 5, 6, and 7 are great holes.
- Dogs, dogs, dog, and more dogs. Bob Barker should come teach the fine folks of Norwalk about spade and neutering.
- The Hole # and distances on the pads are nice, but due to the smooth surface they are slick. Therefore shortening the pads, or causing you to have to stride over that part if you start form behind; something you should not have to worry about.
- Hole #2 long fairway throws over #1 pin, this is just something to watch out for in future design. This should not be a problem unless park usage spikes and people are putting at the same time others are teeing off.
- Hole #11 plays to close to the utility substation for my liking, the preferred right handed route throws over it. I would recommend modifying the hole.
- Hole #5 needs some love. At 366 ft this hole is very duceable, but there is no way through the trees. All pins should have a route to them, the only one I saw was a thin gap over the bridge. On my first drive I crushed a wraith hyzering across the creek directly to the pin only to get knocked down by the trees and landing in a big ass ravine/creek. I laid up the second time around, my safe shot was about 70 feet away, but due to the trees my only shot was up and over. The thumber landed 5 feet from the pin but rolled into the pool of water in the creek to the left of the pin. I was using a branch over hanging the pool to support myself while fetching the disc, then the branch broke and sent me ass first into the pool. I didn’t feel 8 more holes soaking wet sounded fun so I turned in. I also feel that the bridge plays to close if that gap is the only route. I would suggest removing a few trees to open up a route, this would make it duecable and also parable with a safe shot.
Overall fun course, with some tough greens, great for the town of Norwalk
