The friendlier side of Jones Park
Pros: Very well taken care of park. Good signage. Designed with varying challenges for different skill levels, therefore while it can be tough, its a fair kind of tough.. Multiple pin positions that actually give you a different look and may cause you to vary your strategy. Some pins cleverly hidden inside groups of evergreens. Hole 17 with the pin long (686 feet) with two preferred routes, one through a low tunnel, the other over the top both of them hazardous is one of the challenging holes anywhere.
Cons: Has a few areas where there are flow issues on the back nine. No map of the course onsite. For all its care, Jones Park has some issues with drainage. You can find waterlogged or muddy spots in lots of places after a hard rain. An extra pair of socks would come in handy here.
Other Thoughts: Not as overwhelming as its sister course which it literally brushes right up against, this is still a very serious challenge when the pins are in the longs. Even the short holes are no gimme as there is always that errant tree branch and sometimes relentless wind that blows your disc off its line. I would highly recommend taking a look down the fairway to see the basket if you can't spot it from the tee. The Mach 3's on this course aren't as visible as the yellow Discatchers on the East course. Regardless of what configuraton you get, you will want another crack at this one when you're done. Better for newbies and casuals along with Peter Pan Park across town. You could really spend a night in Emporia with all the disc golf courses available.

Pros: every hole is parable, not too many trees, the water hazards are short, cement tees, with real life pictures at each tee showing where the basket is at. multiple basket placements. good course for beginers and pros.
Cons: not really any cons,, maybe a bright yellow ring on top of baskets like the east course has, at the same park
Other Thoughts: highly recomended!! 2 courses at the same park.. 36 different tees

Cons: Not a great course for beginners due to some difficulty, but overall highly recommended
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if you are in the area or want to compete in the annual tournements in town.
