Pros: Close attention is given to this course. The grass was freshly moved and there was no litter to be found. Tee pads are medium sized. The course signs are accurate and helpful as well as easy to spot.
Cons: Houses line two sides of this park. Any arrant disc may collide with several of the very nice houses in Sidney. The course has no hills, which is indicative of the area, but it creates a sameness for all the holes. A couple holes have great tree obstacles, and the rest try to incorporate the trees. The worst part about this course is what you expect from courses in open plains, and that is wind. There were 40 mph gusts when I played, and it seems there is always wind in western NE. This is, by far, the worst part.
Other Thoughts: This course is good, but what holds it back are things that cannot be changed. First, the size of the trees can only be changed by time, because at the moment they cause no challenge, and secondly the wind, and well that will never change.
Since this is the only one of about 5 courses in the panhandle, it is a good stop if you need a break, but I would not recommend going out of your way for it.

 new car smell

Pros: Right now there is nine holes lined with baby trees and there isn't much scenery unless a good looking rollerblading chick makes her way down the bike path. I'm sure you will be shocked to learn that there is corn, and wind. As a Disc Golf tourist, I totally appreciated the fact that there is a course in Nebraska that has a corn field as part of its out of bounds. Corn is the type of local flavor I love on a frolf trip. The baskets and pads are in great shape, so new that it smells like new car.
Cons: The park is new, and the course is also new, therefore the trees are babies. There is really not much challenge unless the wind kicks up.
Other Thoughts: I played the course during its official grand opening and have not been back. I am very keen on discovering how things evolve in the future.

Pros: Great for beginners, most shots are dead ahead, very few obstacles to avoid yet out-of-bounds on every hole.
Cons: No Elevation change with very few young trees. Often challenging with strong winds.
Other Thoughts: Course shares park with walking trail. More trees are being planted and in 5 years will be of sufficient size as to make this an excellent technical course.
