Pros: ~ 18 hole layout
~ Nice mix of long, short, open, and technical holes
~ Scenic Course
~ Tee Signage and Mach II Baskets
Cons: ~ Natural tees; front and sides framed with RR ties
~ Poor layout
~ Gimmicky lines
~ Unforgiving schule
~ No restrooms, benched, trash cans or course map
Other Thoughts: The course starts off nice with 3 good holes, but then goes downhill. The prairie area the course goes through is just ridiculous, I searched on a lot of holes, never losing a disc, however I got absolutely tore up from them. On a plus side these holes do teach you to play smart golf, but with the distances they have you should be rewarded with a wider green/fairway if you can throw that far.

With some loving this course could be really nice, but it currently has a very poor design. Some of the tees are on top of the pins. There are also a number of holes that are complete boomerangs, ranging from 200 to 300 ft, with 10 feet tall prairies on both sides of the fairway. I had to pitch out off the tee on all 3 to card a 3, you should never have to pitch out off the tee, especially on holes of this length. If you don't pitch out you are throwing up a blind prayer that you are hoping you can find. The wooded holes and greens are also lacking in the maintenance department. One of them throwing through a ropes course and a few others have about 10ft wide greens. The course is worth a visit once a lot of work can be done, but for now the design and layout makes for a rather unenjoyable round.
