nice use of a lake
Pros: -lots of shots with water in play, including a couple peninsula shots
-signs w/ pictures at every tee
Cons: -big break in flow after 13, long walk to 14
-located in the middle of nowhere
-broken bottles in a couple of places, likely due to being out in redneck territory
Other Thoughts: -mostly open shots, not a whole lot of trees.
-all holes were of moderate distance
-not too challenging for us amateurs, that is, as long as we don't let the lake psyche us out!

Water + Wind = disc eating machine
Pros: Beautiful rural setting around a city recreation lake a couple of miles outside town. Onsite camping. Good signage. Flows very well. Dares you to challenge going over the water while leaving a weenie route for less skilled players. The over water shot on Hole 10 has a cement pad for its drop zone. When conditions are windy (and they often are), the wind tends to swirl in unpredictable directions around the lake causing you to think before you throw. A number of the holes give the player some options with regard to shot selection. 16 and 17 are particularly fun (or not if you screw up your drive). Because Anthony is such a small town you'll likely not have any wait time. In fact, I had the course all to myself.
Cons: Land on some of the holes near the water can get spongy or inundated when there's been a lot of rain. Might want to bring some waterproof socks (and mosquito repellent!). The drink on all of the water holes is always on the left with the exception of Hole 5 (and to a lesser extent Hole 14). This seems to be a common occurence on courses that traverse around lakes. Lack of trees on the non-water holes (although it makes good use of the ones that are there). Fairways between 7, 8, 9 on one side and 14, 15 on the other could be better defined with some trees (although this might deter the water threat on 14). Sometimes you'll see two baskets in this area and wonder which one you should be aiming at. Some trash cans at the pads would be nice. Long walk from Hole 18 back to Tee 1. Parking is minimal and roads around the course area aren't in the best shape. In fact, the road surrounding most of the course was washed out near Tee 4 (and the teepad was covered in sand) during my visit.
Other Thoughts: Installed two years ago, this has become one of my favorite places to hit when I want to take a day trip for some discing. I just wish it wasn't 80 miles. Its about 45 minutes off I-35, but well worth the detour if you're coming to / through Kansas.

Long, open, lots of water hazards
Pros: Has fine tees, good colorful signs with lots of information. Long, in a pretty park set around and back along a lake. The water and road keep you on your toes, the trees are barely even noticeable. A few holes have strategic trees though that craft fairways.
Cons: Hard to tell if it's free or have to pay to enter park? Also hard to find the 1st tee and where to park your vehicle. Grass wasn't mowed recently, not high but eliminated the roller which is useful here. Lots of water hazard- expect to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: Long, windy, clean playing. Just beware of the water and bring a lot of drivers. No putter shots.
