Pros: This is a very interesting course. The layout circles around a small pond and park in the area. the pond come into play on almost every hole so players are always wary of going in. This makes for a challenging yet fun round of disc. A couple holes have shots that go directly over water which forces players to come up with some creative shots. The course is kept up in relatively good shape. One of the biggest pros of this course is the Casey's Gas station located in town that has quality innova discs at really good prices. You can buy star discs at 14 dollars, champion at 12$, and the prices go down following that trend for the other plastics.
Cons: This is a challenging course for some of the discers in the area. Be prepared to lose a disc or two if your not very confident in your throw.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course in the Northwest Iowa area. Especially for such a small town. If you make your way over there, you wont be disappointed.

Pros: Good compact course with concrete tee pads, good tee signs, and plenty of obstacles.
Cons: couple very short holes. did what they could with the room they had. water comes into play on a couple holes and can easily lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: good fun course to play on. water can suck if you aren't careful. course map at the beginning and there are usually plenty of scorecards

Pros: While very compact this course is designed extremely well. The water hazard shots feel fun instead of nerve-wracking, and there is a great deal of shot selection (overhand vs. forehand for me) that when into playing the course.

I had to work on my anhyzer shots for this course, which was fun, and used a tomahawk effectively a couple of times.
Cons: I wish there were some longer holes. I think the variety makes up for this for the most part, though another 400'+ would be nice.
Other Thoughts: The course is well marked and extremely well maintained. Like I said, for a short, compact course, this was extremely fun to play.
