Pros: Great Tee Pads
Great signage
Next tee arrows on all the baskets
Great course for beginners but also wouldn't call it "easy". A few ace runs for sure but also some distance and definitely some challenging holes.
Cons: To me there are no cons but for a Pro or a serious disc golfer, this course will seem pretty easy for you. Which again, isn't a bad thing.
Other Thoughts: When I first played this over half a year ago, it was messy and confusing. The local disc golf club Sharpshooters of Pierre, SD did a really, really great job this past Spring and Summer raising money and getting all the tee pads and signage in. I know guys personally who go out there and pick up and trim and keep it in tip top shape.

Pros: Located in town
Free
Not very busy
New Tee Pads
New Signage
Great river side views
Cons: Sometimes it can be a little busy with the nearby picnic shelters, but usually only an issue on a couple holes.
Older Baskets
Other Thoughts: This course was renovated this summer to include 18 new signs for each hole that include Hole number, Distance, and par. They have new concrete tee pads. Local club Sharpe Shooters DGC holds weekly doubles during the summer.

Some of the baskets have been damaged due to recent storms, a flood, and old age. Some do have some rusty chains(usually only one or two strands) But they sat completely submerged for 3.5 months. They do lean a little from people hanging on them and the collars the poles sit on stretching out. And during a summer storm, a few baskets had large branches fall on them. The damaged baskets were replaced within a week and the others were fixed, but they still are not in "new" condition.

Pros: Sharpeshooters Disc Golf Club & City of Pierre have completely renovated this course. 18 new fan-shape cement tee pads, new tee signs and directional signage under each basket.
Cons: Not a long course at 5,162 feet but plenty of holes requiring good shot making ability. The pictures were taken in mid-November so you will see more tree canopy and vegetation in the summer
Other Thoughts: If visiting Pierre play Steamboat, then head to Oahe Downstream and play 36 different tee pads. The local YMCA runs a league open to anyone on Wednesday nights during the summer. This course also plays host to the Shark in the Park tourney during Oahe Days in the summer.

Pros: -Good layout with mature trees as obstacles
-Nice baskets
-Holes aren't crowded, park is very big and course is in three different parts of it.
-Practice basket with putting ring around it
-Local disc golf club: Pierre Area Sharpe Shooters
-Shelter, garbages, bathrooms near start/finish
-Detailed map with descriptions of each hole, check this out right behind hole one tee box
-Tons of parking
-Great views of the Missouri river and bridge
-Good variations in distance, most holes have multiple lines to use so they're not just right or left hand holes
-Good for players of all skill levels
Cons: -Tees are only marked by a yellow pole thing and some of those are missing. They are also natural. Not in bad shape or anything buy not as nice as others.
-No elevation, is right next to the river and is very flat
-Tees don't have signs on them so navigation can be slow if you haven't been here before. The course also goes under the bridge then across a road if you aren't paying attention you could miss these
-Pierre is hot in the summer!
-Vandalism can be a problem although it is usually fixed pretty quick
Other Thoughts: This is the only course in Pierre, Powerhouse Alley is about 6 miles away and is a little nicer but this is a good course. Worth a play if you're here. Capitol sports on Pierre st downtown has a decent selection of discs- mostly innova but a few of other brands as well.

Pros: Great layout for what they had to work with. Shares space with a public park but nothing comes into play and very rarely have to worry about hitting anyone. Theres a bike/walking path going along the river but theres maybe 2 or 3 holes where that comes into play. Good course for learning the game. Not many chances to lose a disc Theres one hole along that river that you could possibly be swimming if the water is high. Every hole works with whatever your throwing style is. Lefty and righty routes all the way through.
Cons: The baskets. I believe they're Lightning practice baskets cemented into the ground. The chains are tight and spit a lot of well placed shots. A lot of them are bent and or rusting. Theres two on the other side of the bridge that aren't even anchored at all. One was stolen the last time I was there and the other is moved to different locations every time I play it.

Pros: Course is seeminly nicely laid out. Park setting so it is clean and well kept. Holes have a small variety of length, but fairly consistant. Much of the course is on the shore of the Missouri River but the River really is not a threat to swallow your favorite disk. Trees in play for all but maybe 2 holes.
Cons: Course needs some updating. Baskets are previously mobile baskets sunk in concrete. Baskets are too short and many are tilted in the concrete. Course needs some TLC concerning the baskets. Lift and straighten.
Other Thoughts: I liked this course. It is a good play and the Missouri River bugs were not an issue on the day I played. Holes 7-10 were the most challenging and are also the holes most skipped by the locals as it is under the bridge and these holes do interrupt the flow of the course. Adjustments as listed in CONS will make this a great South Dakota course.
