Pros: -Nice baskets
-Good for beginners or a quick round. You are unlikely to lose a disc unless you toss it over the barbed wire fence so just be careful on that hole. The lack of traffic and great flow make you able to blow through a round. There is never any looking for the next tee pad or scouting for a basket.
-Many ace opportunities
-A few interesting tee shots, number 4 was a blind one around some conifers and 8 was blind down a hill and 9 was long.
-Good parking and nice bathrooms, this course is mowed often and I didn't see any trash.
Cons: -It is pretty open, may be pretty windy.
-Could lose a disc over the barbed wire fence.
-Not a lot of elevation, a pretty flat park
-There are some big rocks in the middle of the park. I wish they would have incorporated them into the course somehow, like putting a basket right in the middle. That would have made for a signature hole.
-There is a walking path near some holes that you may have to watch out for and hole 9 shoots back towards the main park area.
-There just isn't much to challenge you on this course. Even if your drive is horrible you should be able to recover and get a 3 on any hole, unless your drive goes backwards. There aren't many obstacles and the course is overall pretty short.
Other Thoughts: -This is one of those city parks that they didn't have much to work with but they did alright. I doubt that there is a better place for the city to build a disc golf course. This is a small town. I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course but if you are in town you might as well breeze through a round. If you are traveling to get here, play Adel or any of the big courses in Des Moines.

Pros: -Always clean and mowed
-Barely any walking distance between pins and tees
-A lot of aceable holes(if that's what you're looking for)
-Restrooms on site
-Drinking fountain and shelter in park
-Rarely crowded
Cons: -Not really a hole to really unleash your drivers
-It's too easy (almost every hole should be a par 2)
-Not much variety
-There's a fence with barbed wire at the top on the side of 2 holes that you have to avoid. If you throw over it, you have to take an annoying path all the way around it.
-Basically a boring course that's not worth the trip unless you live in Dallas Center
Other Thoughts: This is hand down the easiest course I've played to date(6/19/09).

Pros: Well maintained grass.
Very low chance of loosing discs.
Several "ace-able" holes for intermediate players, even a few for novice players.
There are restrooms on site.
Cons: Very simplistic course with no elevation.
Most shots are fairly open with the pin sitting near a couple trees.
There is barbed wire on the top of a fence that runs along two of the longest holes on the course, making disc retrieval very annoying if you go over. This potentially affects LHBH and RHFH throwers more than others, but it is still not difficult to do.
Other Thoughts: This would probably be a great course for beginners if not for the barbed wire fence. If you live in Dallas Center, it might be worth stopping by occasionally, but this is definitely not a course to travel to. Adel's course is closer to the interstate and much more fun to play, though if you're traveling any distance it would be better to stick some higher ranking courses closer to Des Moines.

Pros: Well groomed, a few different shots required, not very busy, good use of existing land.
Cons: A couple short, easy holes, borders a business with a barbed wire fence and some houses, limited parking.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course if you're in the area, but not worth traveling for.
