Pros: Much respect goes out to the folks getting this nice little 9 holer placed in middle of nowhere Nebraska. Let's be honest... we came to town to see the Cabellas, get a new state in, and get a new state played.

The park itself is a small approximate 20 to 30 acre park that adjoins a very small community college of some sort. It feature this 9 hole course, some nice work out equipment, and a few collegiate soccer fields.

The design of the course is basically what most designers would do... and about as much as you could do with the land given. Almost every hole can be reached with a rhbh hyzer shot. The first 3 holes play a hyzer shot over some pines into a row of pines. Several open shots. Wind obviously comes into play. I like that there is low likelihood of hitting walkers. However, high likelihood for a newb to hyzer into a backyard.

Adjacent to holes 5 and 6 (i believe) is a sunflower filed... which was stunning.

The wind can add some difficulty i suppose.

Great signage... and easy to follow the flow.
Cons: As noted before... only 1 hole favors a lhbh/rhfh. If it were my course, i would have tried to place a tree on one of the holes just right of the end of the pad.

The course is missing elevation of any form. I would try to raise one of the baskets.
Other Thoughts: Great beginner course. There is plenty of land around for a larger course in the future. Hopefully, the area is building a player base of sort.

As mentioned before by another reviewer. Alternate pads could make a full 18 holes with different shots.

 Nicely Kept City Park

Pros: -Very nicely kept. The grass was green and watered, excercise equipment, nice path, bathrooms, etc.
-Decent length. No gimme 2s here, some holes are kind of easy but not too easy.
-Young trees for challenge, will get better with time.
-Nice baskets and tee boxes. Signage was adequate enough and the flow was pretty easy to follow for a first timer.
-You probably won't lose a disc here unless you don't watch where your disc goes into a pine or something.
-They throw OB into most holes to make it a little more challenging.
-Good for a quick round or for teaching a new player.
-It has some open holes to practice pure distance drives.
Cons: -Pretty open, could be windy.
-The overall design is lacking. The first 3 holes were somewhat challenging but not really in a fun way and they were all similar. Throw down a row of pines then cut in towards the basket. It is an awkward line if you plan on reaching in one.
-Other park activities could come into play with a very errant throw.
-The course is kind of in the backyard of some nice homes and some of the holes play pretty close to them. It just has an awkward and almost creepy feel about it.
-Very flat and no water.
Other Thoughts: This course is for beginners to intermediate players. It has some unique challenges that can be amplified by the wind. The designers did what they could with this W Nebraskan land. They put some money and work into it and I respect that. Like I said before, the course will continue to get better and harder as the trees get bigger. I would recommend a stop here if you are on I-80 simply because you don't have many options.

Pros: Signage is great. Easy to follow. Tee pads and baskets are in great shape. Park is very well kept. Hole 9 is a great finishing hole and probably the most difficult. Lots of OB.
Cons: No real thought required to play, just step up and throw. An easy hyser tee shot works on every hole, except No. 4.
Other Thoughts: The designer used the land available, there were not many options. Not much possibility of alternate hole locations, but there is a lot of room for additional tee locations for almost every hole that could make this course a much better play.
