I Liked This Short Rec Course But I Wouldn't Call It A Course Designed For Younger Disc Golfers!

Pros: Rolling Hills DGC is a nice little recreational length course set in a park with scattered tree and some very slightly rolling terrain. I like the fact that there is a Dis Golf sign attached to the Rolling Hills Park sign out on the street. Disc golf has come a long way when it's being advertised as a legitimate park activity.
The old course sign at # 1 is faded and illegible. The concrete tee pads are rutted for better traction in rain. The baskets are older and the numbers on top have been painted in a rainbow color pattern. There is a garbage can here at # 1.
# 1 is a cool little hole. It's about 225' it a basket tucked into the trees. You can hyser out over the street a little. # 2 was also a neat little hole, probably just 140', but to a basket tucked under some branches and a little water hazard (long ago dried up).
# 3 was open and boring 175' to a wide open basket.
Like others, I got a little confused at # 4. I think I finally figured out where the pad was.
# 6 was wide open, 325'. And # 9 was a really boring 290' open holes back across the dirt to a basket near the start.
Cons: A few too many wide open holes with no obstacles.
Howling Kansas wind.
Busy street on # 1 could easily come into play.
Confusion on # 4 and 6.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course and the park. I's like to see it other times of the year when it's not so dry and parched. I'd also like to play it once when the winds weren't so fierce.
I don't see this course as a beginner course at all. I think with it's length, it's a solid little recreational course. I enjoyed playing it. It's another great stop on the I-70 Kansas road trip.

Not bad for what it is
Pros: Good use of available space.
Another place to play in a tiny rural town.
Good place to practice your short game and open throws.
Billboard with course layout at start.
Other Thoughts: For what it's worth, Hays is lucky to have a second course for such a small town. Frontier Park is much better, but this course gives you another option.

great course for a lunch break
Pros: well kept land, easy flow from hole to hole, easy course to play during lunch or just for a quick practice before going to frontier park
Cons: next to a busy street and close to houses also no parking, you have to park along the street
