Memorial Park Golf Course course breakdown

Now that we know the layout of the golf course, what else makes Memorial Park Golf Course a challenge?

The golf course isn't particularly difficult, especially now that it's played in March, when the turf is softer and the grass is overseeded.

The putting surfaces are pretty big, and there is fair room to miss off the tee. Scoring should be pretty good this week.
