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.

Serenity in Manhattan
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.

Hike from Hell
Pros: Nice views and cliff drives that you can let fly..nice view of town..extremely technical in spots...makes you use parts of your game that don't get used that much
Cons: windy everyday up there...some holes 1,2 and 8 I think should be moved out of the woods
Other Thoughts: I like this course alot but don't play it much as I prefer the other 2 basket courses in manhattan..this course is difficult and technical

Pros: Practice basket near shelter is good for warm up game of horse, there are a couple of trash cans and a shelter here also.
For a nine hole course it offers a good variety of shots and much more elevation change than any other local courses. I get to use a few discs out here that dont get to see much action around town.
Good layout without much confusion between holes and although the park is relatively small, it is easy to keep your disc out of the middle of someone elses game on a bad drive.
Very close to residential area on one side and retail on the other, but it still has a very peaceful feel to it any time of the day.
Update: Brand new concrete teepads, and new course sign!
Cons: Although the Fairways are well kept, a misplaced drive in the rough often times seems to dissappear in the tall grass, however the grass is trimmed in the fall and presents no problem for a large part of the year. Although the short hike from the parking lot to the course is nothing for an average person to sweat over, I think a couple steps on the slippery muddy spots would be helpful.
There are also no restrooms on site, so plan accordingly.
Other Thoughts: Although not particularly impressive or anything to write home about, this course is a lot of fun. If you are looking for something to play while passing through town, I would reccomend Warner Park.

First Ever Review of this Course.
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.
