Little bit too much love
Pros: Okay so the course starts off with a front nine that has its challenges and some holes are sort of long. The holes are well layed out and some of them can be challenging with small and bigger trees in the middle of the fairways. Its in a nice, quiet location in a neighborhood that you would not expect to have a course in.
Cons: Ok where do I begin? The back nine or so has shots that are impossible because the trees and the brush is not cut enough away to have a shot at all. Also the back half of the course makes it hard to figure out where you are going from tee to tee because the lay-out is not setup in a nice pattern. Once you get to number 12 you have to go into a whole other part of the park which gets very confusing. I only give this course 2 discs because the last 2 holes are cool and the front 10 or so are reasonable disc golf holes. The canopies in the woods makes it impossible to score and there is plenty of confusion on where new holes start.
Other Thoughts: If you're driving through Missouri and want to stop on the way, just keep driving to Kansas City.

Pros: -Front 9 relatively open, back 9 in deep woods, offers a good variety of hole lengths and shots required to play them.
-Nice level tee pads, long enough for me anyway.
-Multiple pin placements on most holes
Cons: -Signage is lacking, print off a course map before tackling. Took me 20 minutes to find the second tee the first time I played here.
-Course isn't in the best of neighborhoods, trash is often found in the woods, no trash cans
-Hole 12 is ridiculous. The fairway goes 75 feet then takes a 60 degree turn to the right. From there it is only another 250 feet uphill with a 20 foot wide fairway. By the way there are two trees in the middle of that fairway so it is really two 4 foot lanes or an overhead shot if you happen to place your tee shot in the perfect spot.
Other Thoughts: A pleasant walk through the park can be spoiled by this course. The holes don't look that tough but for some reason I never seem to score well here. Some longer holes and the shorter ones are pretty tight. Has much sharper doglegs than I have seen elsewhere, particularly 11 and 12. If it has been raining certain areas can get slippery (7 green and 8 tee especially).

eh or neh?
Pros: Long, short, and medium holes. there even is a tomahawk throw i had to use on hole 17. I love the way that you have to walk quite far on this course. (some may think that this is a con). But, i love to get something more outta playing than just throwing.
Cons: no maps. until you learn the course you will walk around a bit on the first couple of times.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to play on. By far a favorite of mine. We had a great time. The best pro about this course is that it gives you a wide variety of different holes.

Tough on a windy day
Pros: I really liked this course for its diversity of hole lengths and obstacles. The first 12 holes or so play mostly through open areas with big pine trees on each side. The next 5 holes are in some open woods and some really tight woods. The wood holes are not easy, they are short but they are really easy to bogey or double bogey. Despite the name "Indian Hills" the course is nice a flat, easy to walk, you could play 36 holes easily and not be too tired.
Cons: The course really needs a map or new tee signs that show the path of the hole. Many times I had to walk quite a ways to find out where the pin is. Trees are a big problem here, you really have to be able to throw straight every drive.
Other Thoughts: Love this course, could play it over and over again.

Roadtrip to Columbia
Pros: This course offered a definite challenge throughout all 18 holes, backdropped by beautifully laid out fairways and some of the most interesting pin placements I've encountered. One notable hole (cannot recall the number) my buddy dubbed "The Ninja Scroll" hole. Row after row after row of young trees with high branches formed a copse that you had 4-5 foot wide lane to throw down. Low and pro is the only throw here!
Cons: Of the three courses I played in Columbia, Indian Hills was by far my favorite
Other Thoughts: For what it's worth, there are three things I consider when rating a course: Variety of shots, condition of course, and something I call Vibe. Vibe is the overall feeling of the environment, the ambiance. So if a course is short, long, even repetitive in shot type, but the vibe of the course is right, it satisfies me to one degree or another. This course has a great vibe.

Pros: It has both open fairways and wooded fairways, so you get plenty of both worlds. There is a decent variety in hole lengths.
Cons: The wooded holes are tight and unforgiving. The open holes are hardly creative. Definitely nothing fancy about this course.
Other Thoughts: By itself it stands as a very playable course, but when compared to the Oakland front and back courses nearby, this course should only be a supplement to your disc golf day.
