Pros: -Course is relatively easy to find.
-Beginner friendly
-The tees are in very good conditon.
-The tee signs are very useful.
-The baskets are in good condition as well.
-Good amount of trees, as well as open space on this course.
-Traffic on this course is fairly low.
-Most holes have a reasonable shot of being aced.
-Good course to use a variety of different shots.
Cons: -Some of the tee signs are being vandalized.
-Hole 6's basket is in kind of bad shape.
-The par 4 and 5s here are very generous--all are par 3 distance.
-Easy to lose a disc in the river or in trees in you are not careful.
-If crowded, it may take longer to make it through than it should.
-Intersecting fairways--can be a major hassle if there is heavy traffic.
-There is a bit of litter here.
-Bugs can somewhat be an issue at times.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice small course for people who live in the town, but serious players would have a better time stopping inAmes. The course there are much better and they are only 15 minutes from this one.

-Pins are in great shape
-Grass is cut weekly
-Bathroom on hole 8
Cons: -Extremely easy course
-Intersecting fairways

-Tee signs are starting to be vandalized and pulled out of the ground by players.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend you stop by this course to warm up if you are coming from the north to play Ames, Des Moines, Ankeny, Altoona, Etc. Great Course to get your first or your 100th Ace on. Course is in great condition.

 Short but not too bad

Pros: -Nice signs
-Nice baskets
-Nice tees
-River and water provide a little challenge
-Park is pretty clean and grass looks to be mowed regularly
-Easy to find off main drag in town, good parking
-Good for beginners
-Good for a quick round
-Shouldn't lose a disc, river isn't a huge challenge
-Just off I-35
Cons: -Very short and not a lot of variation in distances
-If there are multiple people on the course you have to be careful due to poor layout
-Park is small and that has a lot to do with the layout
Other Thoughts: Like the other reviewer said this course really isn't worth playing. It is pretty average, small and not challenging. If I lived around it I would play it but otherwise I would leave it alone. Ames and Des Moines are just a few more miles down the interstate and have many good courses.

 Small community course

Pros: Baskets in good repair. A variety of distances and directions to throw. Plenty of trees to play around. Some water. A nicely maintained park.
Cons: A couple places where fairways cross. Short holes.
Other Thoughts: This course is located along a river in a small city park. Many of the holes are quite short and uninteresting. Even though it's just a mile or two from the interstate, I'd recommend traveling the extra distance to either Ames or Des Moines.
