Homemade Baskets are just the start
Pros: -Nice maintained park, they were watering when I was there
-Other stuff to do here; tennis, picnic, playground, etc
-Some of the holes were actually fun shots of a decent distance.
-A few ace runs but an overall longer park course.
Cons: -Homemade baskets are of differing heights and are single chained so they don't catch all that well either
-No tees, play from the tee shaped dirt which would be very muddy with any moisture.
-No tee signs
-Layout is bad, never really know which hole you are throwing at next. The park is small enough that you can see multiple holes on most 'tees'
-Layout has you throwing at or over fences, playgrounds, picnic areas, sidewalks, etc. Caution is advised.
Other Thoughts: Despite the poor overall design and amenities, the park wasn't actually that bad. I would only play most of the holes if there were many other or any other people in the park. If the park isn't busy and you figure out the layout in the first couple rounds you might be able to have a reasonably challenging and fun couple of rounds. The lack of signage, tees, real baskets and any safety concern hurt this course but those all could be remedied with just a little work. I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course again but NW Nebraska doesn't have a lot of courses so you might as well give it a shot.

With a Miniature Statue of Liberty!
Pros: The course is in a nice park located across from the state college. It was very easy to find. The park does not have the beauty that the nearby Chadron State Park course has yet, overall this course is better simply for its more honest distance. Even without a map it was easy to pick out where the next hole was. There was a cool spray paint mural on a shed in the park. The park is a very laid back space, It was nice to relax in a park.
Cons: There are no tees and there are no markings that I could find to give a slight clue of any shred of information. In the summer of 08 I just played safari. There were tons of manmade or shared park obstacles along the way. Giant tennis court fences, tool sheds, huge park watering hoses, picnic shelters, and so forth all waiting for plastic to much on. It amazes me how much a basic thing, such as not marking out a designated teeing area make an otherwise good course go bad.
Other Thoughts: I played this course on a rare 90+ degree day. I think the entire town was at the swimming pool which the course plays around. I suffered though it as I was on a mission to bag multiple courses that day, but all I really wanted to do was jump in that pool. Some nice little kids were telling me there are more holes, on another end of the park, but I don't know how credible that is. The only reason I played this course was to bag another course, My recommendation to a traveler would be to head over to West Park in Guernsey or up to Hot Springs, or Laing Lake in Alliance which all have more complete courses.
Let me offer my apologizes as most of the pictures I took from this trip are mysteriously lost in the digital world.
