Pros: -Very long for park type disc golf course. Not many short holes.
-A good amount of trees to add some challenge. Some of them take a bit of thinking to craft your line.
-Some elevation changes which creates blind holes and even more variation.
-Tees are marked with number and distance.
-This course probably isn't going to be very crowded.
-Lots of other things to do here and good amenities: horseshoes, grills, garbages, benches, playground, shelter.
-The park appears to be upkept and the grass was already greening in April, good for Wyo.
-Easy to find off I-80.
Cons: -Deer poo everywhere, better than dog or human I guess
-Homemade or just plain old baskets. They are single chained and the bottom bucket seems to be especially big and tall. Putting wasn't the best on these.
-Lots of streets cut through the course and that makes the flow not as good and hard to follow, they couldn't have made this course as long and good without this. Not only do they cut through the course but some of them are quite close to pins. It would be easy to throw on the road and hit a car, moving or not.
-Tees are natural, they are fine but still, natural.
-Wyoming = wind.
-Hole 6's basket is right next to 7's tee boxes. This could be dangerous. I would move hole 7's tee box west to that corner of that area. It would improve both safety and hole 7.
Other Thoughts: Wyoming is sparsely populated, windy, and not too into disc golf. That makes the few courses that are there more valuable. This course has a quality layout and decent distance. The reasons that it didn't get a high rating are the wind, proximity to streets, and quality of baskets and tees. That being said, it is 98 miles to Laramie and over 100 to Rock Springs which are the next courses on I-80. I would recommend stopping here for a travel break. You won't be disappointed if you expect an average course.
-There is a course map on here and I would recommend looking it over a few times. I skipped 3 and 4 on my first time through this course. 5's tee box is close to 2's basket and I must have overlooked the number on the tee.

Pros: Good park course, has good signage and a course map by hole one. Good mix of easy to technical shots.
Cons: Plays through a playground so you need to watch out where you throw.
Other Thoughts: One of the better small city park courses if played. Its too bad its not a 18 hole.
