Pros: Shorter and longer holes. Good water hazards/ tree cover. Good tee boxes and some benches.
Cons: No inner chains. Poor signage to know where the next hole is at. Gets busy later in the day. Locals will go on walks/ walk their dogs through the course. Easy to lose discs on the back 9.
Other Thoughts: Worth the stop to get a good combination of holes with trees and water hazards. If you play all par 3 it is more challenging than if you go by their pars.

Pretty Typical for SD
Pros: -Good for a very quick 18 or for teaching beginners the game. Many ace and birdie ops.
-There are a decent amount of trees for a little challenge.
-The signage at the start and on each hole is good. I never was confused about which hole to aim at or where the next tee was. Solid layout in that aspect.
-Port a potty near the parking lot which is also quite adequate.
-The park looks nice, is mowed well, garbage is picked up, etc.
-The tee boxes were good, plenty big
-Baskets were nice and in good shape
-A few benches.
-The course loops around and both the front and back 9 start and finish at the parking lot.
-There is a decent variation of distance on this course.
-You probably won't have to wait long or at all to play this course.
Cons: -There is a zoo nearby and those animals (monkeys?) were going nuts the whole time. I was actually annoyed by the end of the round.
-The wind can come up and be vicious, this course is somewhat protected but not that good.
-There are a surprising number of places to lose a disc on this beginner type course. The river borders a few holes and the ponds are kind of in the picture with an errant throw. You have a better chance of getting your disc out of the river. It is pretty shallow and clean. Still, be careful if you need to go in.
-The course simply isn't much of a challenge unless it is really windy. You can shoot a two on any hole if you can throw far enough. Many holes only required working your way around one or two trees. Not a lot of shot shaping required. I only remember one hole where there was a specific shot required to get to the basket. It was a right curving hole around some trees at the end of the pond. In the middle of the back 9.
Other Thoughts: -This course is pretty typical of what you might find in South Dakota at a city park. It will be nicely funded with nice baskets and nice tees. This one is sponsored by Slumberland so they had nice signs as well. However, the land is ok. It is pretty open and they didn't use the water as much as they could have. I would have shot over the river once or twice. It wouldn't have been a huge hazard, just a more scenic and interesting hole. Overall, I did have a decent time at this course. There were a few ace runs to keep me entertained. Also, who doesn't like to shoot a ton under par? It's a feel good course for sure. If you are going north on I29 you should stop and play here because there isn't much until Fargo. If you are heading South and have limited time I would recommend Larson Park in Brookings or Tuthill in Sioux Falls. A little of the interstate is Big Sioux in Brandon.

Pros: - Very well taken care of.
- Great signs and flow.
- Good use of water hazards.
- Great course and for an 18 hole it plays at a reasonable pace.
Cons: - Course pars are outrageous.(Play all par 3!)
- No real fairways as everything is mowed (good and bad)
- Not a huge challenge for skilled players.
- No elevation change.
Other Thoughts: I loved this course. It played very smoothly and was a lot of fun to work on perfecting my shots without looking for discs all day.They make good use of the water hazard after hole 9 due to the lack of elevation change.

If you want to throw the lowest score of your life...
Pros: Well maintained, cement tees, plays smoothly. Great to learn the game.
Cons: Very short holes. The pars aren't very logical. Every thing under 300 is a par 3, everything between 300 and 400 are par 4's with a few par 5's. I 2'd all the par 5's my first time playing it. My score by the posted pars was near 30 under.
Other Thoughts: The course isn't garbage. Its fun to play. If there was more room alternate pins would improve it greatly. Unfortunately theres only a handful or holes that an alternate pin would create a more difficult shot.

Pros: Beautiful scenery; based along the Sioux River and some small ponds. Very well maintained. Plenty of shade. Excellent layout and signage.
Cons: Bugs can be very bad, best to bring some mosquito repellant.
Other Thoughts: This course is beautiful on a calm spring, summer, or fall evening. Fun to play!

Pros: Lush well mowed grass with some baskets having manicured wood chip circles around them. Cement tees, good signs and a large course map at the parking lot. Well designed. Forces smooth throws to get past the few trees blocking the pins. Some water hazards.
Cons: Discatchers. While there is some variety..I didn't need more than 5 discs to play it. Very short..with nearly half the holes under 200'. Longest hole is a mostly open chance for 2.
Other Thoughts: Not a challenge for any skill level, but a solid teaching course.
