Decent southeast Kansas course
Pros: Good beginner to intermediate level course. For its short length, it makes up for it with some tricky tight holes. A decent amount of water threat from the park's creek on the back nine. You're gonna perhaps need to go vertical on a few holes to get a birdie, but there are opportunities aplenty. Good signage, and flows pretty logically once you know where you're going. (Remember to cross the road after Hole 2).
Cons: Easy does it there Mr. big arm. The front nine cuts through the city arboretum, essentially land that was established as a tree collection and not necessarily conducive for disc golf. (This is why you have to go vertical on some holes, so you don't destroy all the flora and fauna). I hate to feel like I'm throwing my discs in a glass house. Some other holes cut dangerously close to the parking lot or busy streets bordering the park. Advanced players may find it underwhelming.
Other Thoughts: For a small town like Parsons, you can probably pass this off as neither the arboretum or the disc course is likely to get a lot of traffic. In a larger city, this would be a major space conflict. Still its much better (and safer to play) than the other course at Forest Park across town. Not on my must play list, but probably the best course between Wichita and Joplin.
