+ SHORT COURSE: 9 holes are good for when I want to throw a quick round.

+ PRACTICE MIDRANGE: Hole 7 is the only long shot. The all the others I throw a Buzz (midrange driver).

+ LOW TRAFFIC: Occasionally will have to wait for a group of kids, but typically not overly crowded.
- CRAP: wear shoes you don't mind getting dirty, there is goose crap all over Lamar.

- NOT CHALLENGING: As previously noted, this is a practice course at best. Doubt there will never be talk of tourneys here. Hole 9 has a pond, that is the only challenge.

- FORE!: Hole 3 often has people eating on the benches that lay just right on the line between the tee and the hole.
Other Thoughts:
* LAYOUT: Hole 5 is difficult to see the pin. Its located past the pond to the right. The first time or two, I threw to pin 6 from tee 5... butt u b more smarter then me and will figure it out. ;D

Pros: Beautiful Park--Lamar park is really a beautiful park with baseball fields, tennis courts, splash pads and a LOT of ammenities.

Risk/Reward--Kind of nice to have a little risk/reward where the risk isn't too high.

Flow--flows well, no real chance at getting lost.

Tee Pads--Large clean pads, marked with hole number and par.
Cons: Flow--no tee signs, just pads with numbers on them.

9 Holes--There is so much room at this park for 18 holes. City of Wyoming just needs to nut up and do it.

Water--water is almost too easy to get over on the first couple water holes and a bear to avoid on the last, ask Sgamerp...

Hole 7--seems out of place, it's hugely long and open on a short course and there's no good way to get into the baseball field on the left if you lose a disc.

Busy park--lots of waiting for unwary people to move out of the way to throw.
Other Thoughts: There is so much room for improvement here. I was disappointed, the park is beautiful.

Other Thoughts: A great small park, ive had lots of fun here, got a buddy who lives right across from the park so weve been over there tons of times, its got a couple real nice long shots too to get out the guns!!

Pros: The coarse features an even terrain, no ups and downs. The tees are cement and seem to be well maintained. The distances are not far except for on hole #7 so for those just learning how to throw the disc, like me, that can't get the distance drives yet, this leaves you feeling good about a well played game.
Cons: Lots of people at times. Especially around the first 3 holes. The water hazard on hole 3 is a nasty channel connecting 2 of the ponds. If you lose a disc in there, its not really worth going after.

Pros: - Well marked teepads
- Laid out logically, circles you through the park
- Nicely groomed, always mowed with little trash
- Water hazards on four holes add challenge and reward risk
- Restroom not far from the course
Cons: - It's a popular multi-use park so you occasionally have to avoid picnics, volleyball nets, and a random fisherman or two.
- Baseball fields can quickly come into play on two holes, especially on the long #7
- Wind is usually an issue due to few trees in the area
- Little to no elevation changes
Other Thoughts: I play this course a couple of times each week. It's a nice beginner course that manages to still offer a challenge to more advanced players. Hole #9 is the best hole on the course; it's a dogleg left with a pond on one side and a thick row of trees on the other. This course is a nice alternative if Brewer or Riverside are too busy for your taste.

Updated 5/27/2010:
The tree next to the pond on hole #9 was recently cut down. This takes all the challenge out of the hole and turns it into a relatively easy birdie opportunity. For this reason alone, I'm reducing my rating from a 3 to a 2.5.
