Pros: Great, open course with everything marked and easy to follow. Nice layout through a giant park with some challenging shots. Hole #10 over Duck Creek. Trash cans everywhere, well kept up, nice people, good location.
Cons: First few holes are about as open as can be with no shade to speak of. After the first six or so they become very nicely designed (by Houck). Almost completely flat, which was surprising considering all the other courses I played in the Quad Cities took elevation changes to heart. Holes might be viewed as very similar, but I think they did what they could with the land and maximized its potential.
Other Thoughts: The back nine is across a road and almost becomes another course entirely. A nice change of pace after playing the front. I shot amazing on this course, so maybe I'm giving it too high of a rating, but I had a really great time out here. I would play again.

Pros: -Easily found
-Maps at Tees
-Multiple Tees
-Maintained well
-Plenty of trash cans
-Easily Navigated (except 9-10)
-Holes begin and end near parking lot
-Good scenery; mostly along a creek
-Vending machines by parking lot
-Hole variety: Chalenge, Risk, Dog-legs long/short, obstacles, and all Rewarding.
Cons: -Almost completely flat
-Poor drainage (strange with the creeks) so don't go after it's rained.
-Crossing Highway to get to back 9
-Possibility of lost discs to creek for several holes
-Watch for runners and bikers on cement trail.
Other Thoughts: Bring water retrievers if you have them, or don't throw risky shots. Too flat and open for my liking, but ther were enough trees and creeks and twists to make it worth it. I played the short tees, I'll have to try the long ones next time.

Pros: This is a flat course, but has very challenging holse tucked into some trees and some very tough holes near deep creek embankments.
Cons: Can loose disc's easy in the creeks, but that adds to the challenge to the course as well.
Other Thoughts: Long holes with challenging basket placements. Is a great course to learn on as well as a great course for the seasoned player. Usually a ton of people out on it playing.
