Pros: This is a very beautiful course by the lake with awesome scenic views. This course is a really fun course to play and has a great variety of some short, long, uphill, downhill, and a few left and right shots. The course is very fun and can be challenging but is not too hard for beginners that are new to the sport. The course mostly plays open with a few trees that come into play and still gives you a good chance to hit some aces on some holes. The course has nice concrete tee pads with some great signs with all the hole information you need. The DISCatchers baskets are new and in great shape and are easily visible from most tees. The course is very clean and well maintained with trashcans throughout most of the course. There are restrooms and picnic areas on site that are available for your convenience. This course don't really seem to get crowded that much so you will probably have the course mostly to yourself when you play here.
Cons: The concrete tee pads are a little bit too small to get a good run up on your drive.
Other Thoughts: This is a must play course if you are in the area. You will not be dissapointed when playing here.

Pros: -Very clean, well kept course
-DISCatcher Baskets
-Concrete Tees
-Trash cans every 4th hole (reason it's a clean course)
-Two pin placements every hole
-Great signage, easy to follow layout
-There is a lake for fishing, a skate park, basketball courts, playground for the kids, shelter houses and grills, restrooms and camping nearby. Great park for family weekend outing.
Cons: -Tee pads are a little small for my taste. Only about 4 X 8.
-In some places, a higher line, resulting in a longer drive, could be taken if some tree branches were trimmed.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course. The front nine seems pretty easy and the back nine is tougher because of more trees and tighter fairways. I found out who designed this course, because they saw me playing and stopped to see who I was and welcome me to their course.

Jim Street and Kevin Deboer are great guys! They obviously take pride in the sport, and are currently designing another local course at Southwest Iowa Community College. I look forward to playing that one too.
