Why not?? Actually, why??
Pros: There was a course there...
Close to interstate 35.
Small town, easy to find.
Concrete tee pads. enough obstacles to make it interesting. Was easy to follow once you realized it didn't match the map.
Did I say "there was a course there."?
Cons: Map didn't match actual course (see below). Course is jammed into a multi use city park and numerous holes are bound by the city streets. Was empty on my visit, but can see potential problems with people trying to enjoy the park for quiet while discs are flying around them. Someone really wanted a course in there desperately. Did I say there was a course there??
Other Thoughts: Actual course did not match up to map. Started on #1 where the tee pad was designated on the map. There was a tee pad there, but no marker. Wound through the first 4 holes and found the marker to where #1 had been moved.
The "new" number #1 throws across the ballfield rather than along side it.
Love playing and finding new courses, but left feeling really unsatisfied after this one.

Something to do on your drive
Pros: -Its very close to I35
-Baskets are very nice with hole number labeled on it (Which is needed because two baskets are close to each other)
-Holes 5-9 have enough trees to keep you honest.
Cons: -If they still use the baseball and soccer fields, which almost looked abandoned, it would make the first 3 holes unplayable during a game.
-Hole 5 and 9 have potential buildings as obstacles
-Hole 4 you have to throw across the park driveway
Other Thoughts: This is more of a "why not?" course. If your driving through and feel like stopping why not stop. You wont walk away impressed but you also wont walk away regretting it either.
*hole 5 can be a little deceiving. You can see 3 reasonable baskets for the shot. Go for the middle one just to the left of the building.

Small but alright
Pros: -small town so traffic is probably going to be minimal
-very close to i-35
-plenty of ace runs
-holes 4-9 are reasonably wooded and somewhat challenging
-Baskets are nice
-4-9 have decent signs with map, par, and distance
-4-9 also have nice tees
-Neat, clean and quiet park overall
-Parking lot and bathrooms in the middle
-First three holes are open and pretty short, 3 is probably over 300 ft tho
-Tornado damage at the time of this review
-4-9 holes criss cross and would be dangerous with multiple groups playing
-If baseball field or play equipment has people on it they will be in the way
-1-3 aren't marked well
-Lots of bugs when I went
Other Thoughts: This course is playable, nothing too exciting but is also not going to be the worst disc golf experience of your life. I'm going to say it's worth a stop if you have plenty of time but if you're on a schedule pass it by and play others.

Watch out for the merry-go-round
Pros: Course is only 2 miles east of I 35. Has chainstar baskets. Concrete tee pads.
Cons: 1st 3 holes go around a little league ball field-all straight holes with no obstacles. # 4's fairway includes a merry-go-round and a gazebo. The tee box is incorporated on the basketball court as is tee # 7. One of my drives landed on top of pavilion. Bathrooms were locked.
Other Thoughts: Best time to play this course is when noone is in the park, otherwise park goers will me moving obstacles. Drive 15 miles north to play Prairie DCG as it is worth the drive.

Small Town Course
Pros: Very nice park. Well kept up. Quiet. Concrete pads for all holes. Most holes had numbers and signs (except first 3 holes). Small two-block course but tricky on last 7 holes.
Cons: Had hard time finding the first hole (northeast corner of park. Pad is straight south of hole) No signs on first 3 holes. No biggies tho. Nice park.
Other Thoughts: I suggest playing this course twice. First to find the holes and get in the rhythm, then second time to see how good you are.
