Not Too Bad.
Pros: Nice concrete Tee pads
Nice signs that are easy to understand
Easy to find your way around the course
Have a couple holes you can just launch on Hole #5
Cons: Pretty open course not too challenging.
Only 9 holes.
Kinda aways from town
Other Thoughts: I didn't know exactly what type of course I was going to be playing at. I was not disappointed. It had hole 5 which i just want to play over and over again. Hole 8 where you have a small opening to put your disc. Water hole on 6 is fun and pretty challenging throw. Overall i will be making a trip back hopefully soon.

This 9 holer may surprise you
Pros: I have just returned to play this course again, and therefore updating my review. This is a very nice, exceptionally well manicured 9 hole course. 2 holes are decent challenge. As well as a 515ft Par 5 distance shots. One challenge is over a ravine/water hazard with an angled approach, the other is a dogleg through the woods. The teeboxes are concrete and the fairways are well defined and open. Excellent signs, Bag hooks on sign posts and good pin placement. The people that take care of this course, definitely keep it nice. There are soda machines and bathrooms on site. Excellent for beginners and makes an excellent quick stop on a trip.
FWIW: There is also a fantastic restaurant near the course. You'll see it from the basket on hole #6. Fantastic Tenderloins! Highly Recommended Food! It's called Butch's.
In case you are interested, there is an area for playing horseshoes and bocce ball. ...for what it's worth.
Cons: The first thing about this course is that it is small, and the majority of the course is an open field. Most of the greens are straight distance shots, not much variation. I like the defined fairways, but the rough will swallow your disc. Especially on Hole 3, It's a blind dogleg, it helps to have a spotter, because you can't see where the disc will land.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice little small town course along the river. It's not a course I would drive out of my way for, but it's a nice course for the Town of Mount Pleasant. Now if I was traveling across 34 in South Eastern Iowa I'd stop and play. It's just around the corner from my parents, I can take in a quick game when ever I come to visit, . If you are going to be in the area, then it's a nice place to take in a quick round or two. I really enjoyed throwing for distance on the 5th hole! Somebody put the time and effort to make this a really nice and clean 9 hole disc golf course.
Address for your GPS:
Intersection Co Hwy W55 & Oakland Mills Rd Mount Pleasant, Iowa
from this intersection, Turn down Oakland Mills Road, it'll be about a half mile down the road on the right. The course is on the Mount Pleasant side of the river. Look for the Old thrasher wheels sign at the entrance. The address puts people South of the River, the course is on the North side of the River.

Pros: This was a real surprise for a course. The fairways were well defined, good info on the tee signs and a fun course to play. There is a little diner just North of the pin for hole 6 that you can stop in and get a bite if you're hungry and the shelter house has a soda machine. Bill McDowell designed this course and, so far, I've liked every course he's designed.
Cons: The images on the tee signs are a little confusing because they show the hole with north to the top of the sign, instead of the pin at the top, but this is easily overlooked. There are little in the way of trees on this course (to some this could be a good thing) and the fairways are side by side on some holes.
Other Thoughts: When looking for this course, look for the sign that says Riverview Disc Golf Park on Jefferson Street. Oakland Mills Park is across the Skunk River and that is where we first looked for the course.
