a nice little park
Pros: Easy to get around. Clearly visible paths from one hole to the next. Arrows point you to the next hole. You can play quickly.
A course that makes good use of a relatively small area. Recently upgraded to 18 holes. As the newer holes become more traveled, the lines are becoming more defined.
Straight, left to right, and right to left tee shots
in good proportion.
Cons: 1st tee is a bit sandy, so you have to watch your footing.
The baskets on the new holes are low end models that are kinda flimsy.
A few of the rubber tee pads are on VERY uneven ground. This is the main problem with the course
Other Thoughts: Alleys are narrow, some of them very tight. This is fair because the holes are short.
Improve the tees and upgrade the baskets on the new 9, and this would be a much better track.

Pros: I loved this course! Though only 9 holes there is a lot of fun here. The park itself is wonderful....historic and well taken care of. It's a unique slice of Americana! Adding disc golf only makes it that much better. There is a concession stand and a unique swimming lake available. The course is a simple jaunt through the wooded hillside but offers a fun technical challenge. The tee pads are ample rubber mats and there appears to be a great deal of effort being made to improve the course. Hole 1 is the only open hole on the course. it's a fun 324 foot elevated drive over a picturesque grassy meadow. Then your in the woods for some true technical holes for the rest of the round. Plenty of trees and elevation to make you think and display your precision. I particularly enjoyed the uphill #3 and #6 and the delightful plunge of Hole #9 straight down with a creek lurking behind the pin. There is little to no shule to ruin the day. Plenty of trees to negotiate and if your off the fairway you really get punished scorewise...but it is still plenty of fun to recover. Thanks for the rope to repel down on hole #9....yeah it's that steep! Eurana Park is not too far from Hickory Run State Park and FEW Dam so you can spend the day playing DG in the region.
Cons: A couple of really short holes that derive all their challenge from thick trees. Some may get discouraged by hitting so much wood. (I think these type of courses are addictive because you can easily shoot under 27 but usually don't. Makes me want to come back and play it again!)
Other Thoughts: I love the story behind the course as told by some friendly locals. Apparently the mayor played disc golf and loved it and 3 weeks later there was this gem in the ground. Thats a true Eureka moment! There are rumors that the Bearclaws disc golf club has interest in expanding the course to 18 holes! I hope this happens...I will be back regardless!
