Course Review and Comments

Well, first off, I don't know where this website gets "State Park" in the title . . . it is just "Washington Park Golf", a municipal park. This is a very interesting course. A stream (Pike Creek) and a tributary trisect the course. As a result, a good number of fairways have quite a ravine or valley for you to hit across (or into, depending on your luck or skill). Those who walk the course will get a fair workout up and down these slopes. (There are gas carts available.) The second characteristic which will challenge some duffers is a number of fairly narrow fairways. If you are not a straight-hitter, you will be in the rough or out of bounds often. So . . . will I play it again? Probably, but not until my game improves! Would I recommend it to others? Well, I'll describe it and let them decide for themselves!

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Layout/location makes use of ravines/valleys and creek. Interesting muni course!
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments I might have expected a muni course to be in rough shape considering the drought we are in (at the time I played it) and the amount of traffic it is apparent this course gets. I was pleasantly surprised to find it actually in pretty good shape!
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments For me, the handiest thing is that the payment window/desk is immediately inside the door of the clubhouse. (A number of places make you wander through the pro shop and/or bar/snackbar/restaurant to find the payment desk.)
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments In fairness, I don't really spend much time in clubhouse, pro-shop, etc., so I can't really rate them much.

Play Again Yes
