 Definitely Improving

Pros: The course is shady and fairly challenging. The city mows the course at least weekly, and is quick to clean up and trim broken limbs. Most of the holes have a well defined route, with the continued exception of #9. Almost never crowded.
Cons: Only one set of tees and basket locations so far, but rumor is that there will be a second set of tee pads poured and multiple pin locations in the near future.
Other Thoughts: Having played the course over the summer about 25 times, i'd have to agree that there is a playable line on #9 - I just couldn't find it at the beginning of the summer!

Pros: It forces you to learn a low and straight throw. Something I need work on. And with the exception of one water hole (which I skip) it is tough to loose a disc. The baskets are nice and there are big tee signs to help guide your way.
Cons: Someone needs to take a chain saw and cut back the trees just a little bit. With a little trimming it could be a great course. Also number 9 is a ridiculous hole. It makes no sense.
Other Thoughts: Don't forget to check out the Derby Disc Golf Club. We meet Monday at 4:30 and Thursday at day break. It's a social group and you probably are better than me so don't worry about skill.

Pros: Good nice challenging course.
Homemade baskets that arent bad catchers.
Nice little quiet disc golfing park.
Not a lot of Bomb holes. this course makes you have accuracy.
Last 2 holes are SICK.
Cons: Tee signs are just numbers facing wrong way.

Not much terrain change.

Has a lot of potentional though.

Holes 17 & 18 enough said.
Other Thoughts: This course has grown and is starting to look good. Finally able to have some other good quality courses just outside wichita.
Defintely give it a try at least once.

Pros: Incredibly challenging. For all its length, it rewards accuracy over just being able to bomb. Yellow homemade baskets (and yes, they catch pretty good) provide for easy viewing provided you know which one to aim at. Flows fairly logically through a mostly wooded area around a subdivision and to a great degree is disc golf only (although you'll likely find non discers poking around). The small creek in the park provides an extra challenge on some holes. If you're feeling masochistic, you'll like the last two holes. A 430' drive to hit a narrow fairway between dense trees and a pond, and a 600+ tunnel with dense trees on both sides.
Cons: Tee signs, which as of my review are simple yellow signs with just the hole numbers are oriented all sorts of directions. Some are forward, some sideways, some slanted backwards. This leaves you wondering which direction to go. Brush pile blocking Hole 7. Hole 9 for its long length is an obstacle course with no really well defined fairway and can lead you off course. Hole 17 is going to swallow some discs and have rec players crying unfair, particularly if they're left handed.
Other Thoughts: This course has been a work in progress for a few years now, and its really nice to see the whole thing up and running now as it adds a new dimension to disc golf in metro Wichita, contrasting well with the more 'park' style courses at Herman Hill and Oak. I do hope a little bit of tweaking is done to clean up some of the dead wood, define the fairway on #9, and hopefully make the last two holes a bit friendlier for rec players.

Pros: Interesting course. Well mowed. A few nice opportunities for some very long drives (over 500 and 600 feet).
Cons: A couple of the holes are a little insane. Hole 7 is currently a blind drive over a very large brush pile and hole 9 is well over 400 feet through solid trees.
Other Thoughts: All 18 holes are now in place with distances marked at the tees.

Pros: A pretty nice course as is. The baskets are homemade but are really nice. They are painted yellow so pretty east to see them all. There are signs but with only a number. A practice basket near the parking lot. I think they have a print out of the course map behind the sign but they were all gone.
Cons: The tees are grass and uneven. The tee signs are numbers only, no distance or direction to throw. The course layout is some what messed up I think. Hole 1-4 flow good then 5 is out of place (I think). 6-8 flow good then 9-11 are out of place with the rest of the course. 9 and 10 play along the trees on one side and a pond on the other, RHBH holes then 11 plays back the length of both 9 and 10. The creek is pretty nasty and the ponds maybe hard to get a disc out of.
Other Thoughts: They are working on clearing the trees out on the north end of the park. It looks like it is going to be a while before the other 7 baskets can be put in. I hope they chance some of the holes when they get it all finished.

Pros: clearly visible tee pads and tees
Cons: not mowed completely.
Other Thoughts: Since playing this course back in December of 2007 they have done alot of improvements.

I also hear they are planning on finishing the course making it 18 holes with concrete tee pads. I can't wait for that!

Pros: Decent design, well mowed, challenging, a few water holes.
Cons: Water holes favor RHBH shots, a few holes are rough and the back 7 are not even in yet years after it began going in.
Other Thoughts: Wait til it's ready.
