Great course a little pricey for what you get. Trees make it challenging and other than a few rough spots under repair great conditions even after the rain.

I played this course in 2016 and had some issues about the conditions of the course. When I played this time, all my concerns had been wiped away! The course is in excellent condition. The layout and pace of play were great. Prices are good also. I would recommend this course and will be playing here more frequently.

The course doesn't drain well so there are many spots that have standing water in the fairways and bunkers.

Pace of play was awful, 5.25 hrs to play 18 .. The greens were freshly aerated and some had granular fertilizer on them.. So the putting was very difficult to say the least.

Goodpark is a public course in a "neighborhood" setting. Because of this, there are several holes that dogleg. It is a fairly long course (with a couple of short holes mixed in). There aren't any water hazards to contend with, but there are sand traps on almost every hole and the tree lined fairways provide some challenge to make good shots to stay out of trouble. The putting greens are in excellent shape(but were rolling a little slow..probably due to fall weather conditions) The grounds crew was working hard to maintain the excellent course conditions! Play it!

The Park doesn't let up. Good conditions, greens still a little sandy, and shaggy, from a later aerification. Putts were not visibly bumpy, but not breaking as much as normal.
