Pros: Good for trying out all of your drivers in a wide open area.
Baskets, tee signs, and tee pads are in pristine condition.
Most holes (if not all) have variable pin placements. They all seem to have the typical "long placement" and "short placement" (i.e. they do not create entirely different shots).
No serious problems with hazards or poisonous plants.
Cons: Holes #3 and #4 intersect each other and make game play a bit confusing.
A lot of flat, long, barren holes make for a tedious and redundant round of disc golf.
Its usually windier here than any other course in the area because it is flat and barren.
A concrete walking path runs throughout the course... one can imagine the trouble that this might create.

Pros: - nice, open course. load the bag up with drivers because you'll be letting it rip all day. flat course with few obstructions makes it a good place to work on your fundamental game.
- very clean course. each hole is well maintained, little to no garbage lying about. no vandalism, but that probably has to do with the lack of traffic.
- great place to go for a quick, easy round. course is rarely inhabited by more than 2 or 3 groups at a time. not tucked out of the way too far, but simply not that popular of a course. a decent course for a first timer still learning to throw a disc. forgiving course without many areas of thicket
- excellent sight lines with almost all baskets visible from teepads
- signs all in good shape, teepads clean and free of surrounding litter, nice quality garbage cans too.
Cons: - not exactly a challenging course, though 3 or 4 holes built to test beginning to intermediate players.
- fairways are wide open, sometimes causing you to fall in the habit of just gripping and ripping
- a bit redundant, course goes back and fourth too often
- course is mostly surrounded by cornfields, so if you overshoot big time or griplock on the edge pretty much any time after mid june until the harvest, you'll have to hunt for it.
- any bit of wind makes it a difficult course to play. little to no tree cover causes the wind to blow straight across the course constantly
- only five or six benches, not many places to sit and rest out of the sun once you get into the meat of the course
- most holes really offer no opportunity to create new lanes and challenge yourself to have to thread the needle and put your disc right through tight windows. its just launch it and see how close you can get it to the basket. not a very "inspired" course, you could say*. HOWEVER (read other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: *there are young trees and young bushes over a lot of the course. possibly in five, six, maybe seven years when all of the foliage has grown out and matured and more things have been added, this could be one of the more enjoyable courses in the area. its well taken care of and the signs and pads and baskets are all very nice, all thats missing is a course design thats at least a little more creative, but it does well with the space its given
