Pros: This course is a different animal from other courses in Kansas. The holes were short, most didn't go over 300 feet, but they were very technical. Often this meant throwing around pine trees(more dense than deciduous ones), throwing at very different elevations or both. If you play a lot of disc golf in Kansas, this course may provide a unique and different challenge not seen at most other courses in this state. A couple of holes sat on very big hills and provided and awesome view. Unlike Tuttle Creek this course requires more finesse and utility shots. Accuracy and creativity are definitely required to do well here.
Cons: My biggest complaint is how the baskets were arranged, they were often difficult to find. Sometimes it seemed like they weren't there. With it being my first time and from out of town this was very frustrating. The baskets should be marked better, out of town visitors would have a much better time. Next we played after Manhattan received about 5 inches of snow. Most of it had melted, but with there being no grass from the cold weather and pine trees making it impossible for anything to grow on the ground, there was a lot of mud. I'm sure this would happen after a good rain also. I'd recommend wearing a pair of shoes that you don't mind getting dirty or having a pair of cleats.
Other Thoughts: A lot of hiking was involved. You have to walk a ways before you get to the first hole, which is quite different. This course is only 9 but it would be interesting to see it turned into an 18 hole course. If you ever are near Manhattan and want a different kind of challenge give this course a go.

 Great Course!!!

Pros: Small course with great challenge (uphills, downhills, right hooks and left hooks). On top of a hill so wind factors in as well. Nice concrete tee pads and signs were clearly marked as well.
Cons: Hole 1 and Hole 2 are in among heavy tree and require some/lots of luck or GREAT accuracy. I did kinda like this challenge but it can really hurt your round fast if you hit a few trees in a row.

Pros: Great views, interesting course design, last shot is breathtaking from a good height, and picnic table area looks nice.
Cons: Only nine holes, spent lots of time searching high grass due to elevation and misjudged windy shots, very popular place and crowds up, hole 7 completely out of sequence,
Other Thoughts: This is the most challenging nine hole in town. Couple holes are complete blind shots. This is the rare course where after driving, you'll want to drive again from the same tee.

Pros: Fun elevation course, shorter up hills and longer down hills, make all holes plausible to hit par. Very secluded, with some tight tree shots. Directions to each tee box's that take you on hiking trails in between.
Cons: No flags on the pins, and some baskets are close to each other, so you don't know which one to throw too (number on basket, but have to walk to it to read it). Short, but quite a bit of walking involved. There is no in between, either a wide open shot, or you are throwing into a mess of trees. Takes more luck than skill on hole one.

Pros: Course is clearly marked and the tee pads are nice. The course is very well maintained. No trash and paths are clear. The course is beautiful and has very scenic spots. The holes are really fun because they are very technical. Lots of tree obstacles.
Cons: The course was short, and there is a high probability to lose a disc. There is a bit of a walk to the course, and a lot of car noise from the roads.

Pros: There are two major down hill shots that are really fun, they are almost "cliff shots". There are also three heavily wooded fairways that are very technical. This course offers a variety of tree and elevation challenges which are unique from other Manhattan, KS courses.
Cons: Small 2 minute hike from the car, BASKETS ARE NOT VISIBLE FROM THE NEARBY ROAD. However, it helps build some excitement and it gets you warmed up to play the game.
Other Thoughts: Unlike when this course first opened, the fairways are now mowed on a regular basis. So, if you stopped playing because of the tall grass you may want to give it another go.
