I played that new Treehouz course in Branson, MO today. Definitely not worth the 4.90 rating that it has on this site. Probably local reviews. I believe that, because there are no good courses in this area so this course by far blows away anything within a few hours drive.

The land is beautiful, the course is beautiful, lots of great elevation changes and a few water hazards. They could have done a lot more though. The greens could have been tweaked on a few holes to make them more challenging. There is definitely room for multi-throw holes which they don't have. I saw lots of cool lines in the woods nearby that were not utilized. Although there are a few wooded holes which is nice.

That being said, this would be a fantastic course for spectators. Lots of elevation, pretty open fairways on a lot of holes and lots of room off fairways, lots of room to work cool lines with discs. If there was ever a final 9 set on this course it would be insane.

Yeah, those reviews look pretty sketch! Does look like a good course though.

----------------

On an unrelated note; basket #9 is missing at Summit. The center pole is still there, but the top, chains, and cage are all gone. I didn't play holes #10-#15, hopefully those aren't compromised.

The pictures of that Branson Course make me think a little of Bryant Lake where the maintenance and amenities are fantastic and that seems to outweigh the design for a lot of reviewers.

Mattiessen could host a pretty awesome course. I can picture holes shooting along, across and even in that little river valley. Too bad it is a state park and there is a ton of foot traffic there which means there will never be a course there.

I just realized I am an idiot - it was #8 at Summit, not #9.

Right Matthiessen, wrong site. The place I was referring to is on the east side of LaSalle. Think derelict industrial with woods, elevation and water. It's Superfund at the present owing to heavy metal contamination but I suspect at some time in the future it will become parkland.
