Big City Park
Pros: -There is lots to do here, trains, picnics, animals, playgrounds, rides, swimming pool and most of all, disc golf!
-Nice rubbery tees
-Dual basket positions for most holes, unfortunately they seemed to be in the less interesting position when I was there
-Decent signage (see cons)
-Many ace runs here
-Hole 8 is a good challenge with the lake on the right side. It is a tricky basket position as well
-This course flows pretty well, it was always easy to find the next tee.
-Makes for a good quick round which breaks up a long and boring trip along US 83 or I80. Also could be good for introducing a newer player to the game.
Cons: -Not too challenging, mostly open with a few trees here and there
-On the shorter side for a course, most holes are pitch and putt
-Some of the distances on the signs are clearly wrong. I specifically remember 9 where it says 440 or so feet and I overthrew it with a one step approach.
-Might have to watch out for other park users, this is a popular place
-Could lose a disc in the pond/lake so be careful on that hole.
Other Thoughts: This is the only course in town and the only one for miles. It is worth a stop but don't expect a championship course, this is a good but typical city park course. A few reviews and the description mention a small forest and rows of trees but don't let that fool you. Hole 3 has about 7 or 8 trees around but I don't know if that classifies as a small forest. Any low shot will be just fine on that hole. Like DG Tourist said, there is more land around here that could be better used for a more challenging disc golf course or an addition to the current one,
