Short enjoyable little course
Pros: Amenities. Huge parking area for YMCA, inside has restrooms (and other great opportunities for a Y-Member).
Signage. Each tee location has a sign (no specific area to tee off from besides behind the sign), sign shows a rough map, distance, par, hole number and next tee location (some of the maps/distances are slightly off).
Baskets. Mach II baskets are showing some wear and occasionally falling apart, but perform as expected from this basket, all of them exist.
Decent Variety. (less some ridiculous obstacles and out of bounds) There is a decent variety in distance, hole 7 was near 400 I think, several holes around 300, and several around 200. The variety of trees are used fairly well to create decent lines and add difficulty to the holes.
Ace opportunities. Impossible to lose a disc. Well manicured and clean park.
Not busy. I had the course to myself and would expect similar for any time of the day.
Cons: Tees. No specific tee location and mostly natural grass to tee off from, suits the course fine but could always use improvement.
Clustered. Several baskets are close together, and on a few occasions, ended up at the wrong basket (hole 3 I ended up at 4 basket, hole 7 I ended up at a random [practice?] basket). If there was very many people playing the course it could get dangerous.
Out of bounds/parking lots. Several holes (1,2,9) are very close to parking lots, if there's cars parked there it could be a disaster, I had a bus as an obstacle on hole 2. These sculpted fairways are nearly "unfair" hole 9 has a very narrow lane to shoot at, though I guess the parking lot on the left isn't marked as OB, just watch out for cars.
Wet. After rains the low areas can get very wet, I had to play half of the course barefoot.
Other Thoughts: This course was a rather enjoyable experience on a quick stop through Algona, though I wouldn't recommend going out of the way for this one.
