Paradise Lake is a public 9-hole that has plenty to offer. It’s above average for a short public course in all respects - maintenance, value and overall experience.

The fairways are generally very wide, flat and open, except for a few very narrow tree lined holes. There is one Par 5, three Par 3’s and five Par 4’s. The longest hole on the course is 467 yards and the shortest is 160 yards. There are three tee boxes.

Here’s a few things to keep an eye out for on the more difficult holes.Hole #3 can make or break your score. It’s 170 yards with a narrow fairway with dense trees on both sides, make sure to aim right. Hole #5 (179 yards) is a blind shot on a straight fairway that doglegs right at the end. Hole #6 (367 yards) is a tight fairway with dense treelines on both sides that creep onto the right (aim right to land on the green.)

There’s no bunkers on the course, and most holes are very open, so it’s a good course for junior and beginner golfers. The maintenance is good but could be improved, as there are a few points where the green runs into the fairway. Pace of play is good on this course (about 3.5 hours for 18 holes.)

This course is best avoided on the weekends since it’s popular and gets busy. First thing in the morning on a weekday is an ideal tee time. The amenities are bare bones - there’s no restroom or driving range. Bring your own snacks. Courses also run perpendicular to each other in spots, so watch out for balls flying in from other fairways. The price for a round is good - $20 for 18 holes with a cart.

If you’re looking for unpretentious golf on a well maintained course with friendly staff, then stop by at Paradise Lake.

Short, Mom-and-Pop design, but the greens are good. No bunkers and some funky holes. This is a good course for beginners and it's not expensive, so decent value.

This is a good course for kids that want to practice to get better. At $9 a hole it's worth about 7 of em'. There is no difference between the rough and fairway. It's just short dead grass.
