Pros: This is a great challenging course. I had to pull every trick out of my bag to play here. There scenery added to the fun. The fairways were well defined and there was a good combination of short and long holes.
Cons: Holes 10 and 11 share a fairway and #10 could cause trouble with tent campers. The map on the scorecard could be larger for us older gentlemen to be able to see.
Other Thoughts: If I return to Moberly, THIS is the course that I will want to play. I had a ball here.

Pros: -Great signage on each of the holes
-Course flowed well
-Kiosk had score cards, map of course, very well done
-Concrete tee pads
-Course appeared to be cleared out fairly well. Even though it's the "woods", the fairways were clear and easy to navigate if you didn't wander far, and even if your drive wasn't on the fairway, the under growth was minimal
-Beautiful hole #7 near the water
-Water and restrooms near course
-Gravel roads not out of bounds (there are a few of them, and for me that was a good thing)
-Par shouldn't be hard for most
Cons: -No trash cans on the course at all
-Only a few benches, but the course isn't so long that with one round you need a few of them
-If the rodeo is in town, don't plan on playing because a few of the holes play around the rodeo area, and it is out of bounds and you can end up in it on hole 4
-Holes 10 and 11 - 2 of the longest holes play at each other so that even a decent drive may end up on the other hole's fairway, so look out for discs
-Electrical box on hole 8 in the fair way and fenced off pump on hole 7 - Things that shouldn't be on a DG course but come into play
Other Thoughts: Over all a wonderful course. I was nit picking to find something wrong with it. The worst thing is the lack of trash cans. 10 of us from St. Louis camped out here for the weekend. How to describe the weekend? Unbelieveable. The large tent camping area ($8 per night per tent) with picnic table and fire ring is 30' off the fairway of hole 10 (watch where u set up your tent), so we played this course as singles, doubles, 4 on 4, and a little night golf as well. The park rangers could not have been nicer and hospitable. They are lacking showers but rumor is that within the next year or so they may have them. The other course is just on the other side of the park and a short drive. Lakes to fish, water park, lots of activity, and even a mini train you can ride on Sundays.

If you are wanting to plan a out of town trip and camp, THIS IS THE PLACE. You will not be disappointed. The 2 courses complement each other perfectly. If you could combine the scores for both courses in one park, it would be a 5, a must play for both.
