In the cuts!
Pros: Connell has a new disc golf course in Pioneer Park right in town. The course starts on the other side of the bathrooms and finding the first tee was a little on the harder side. There are brand new baskets (DGA I think) at the course and the tee pads are all natural green grass and it looks like they water it often. Most of the course is open with very little trees for most holes and hole distances range from 150 to over 300 feet in length. I would have to say the signature hole is number six; it's a low ceiling shot with the basket tucked under the tree line that runs on the outer perimeter of the course. There are two routes you can take, a more traditional anhyzer over the field or the less than obvious huge hyzer that plays over a tiny road that doesn't get much travel but you have to make it back into the tree line; a backhand roller is also an option. Navigation is fairly simple and a small piece of paper was taped on to the bottom of the baskets that had an arrow to the next tee pad.
Cons: The tee area is found by locating little blue, flat wooden planks that were put into the ground but are nearly impossible to see from anywhere past teen feet. I think a little stick with a pink ribbon tied around it to show where the pads were would go along way. Because of the difficulty to find the blue planks we never found the tee pad for hole number two even after looking all over where the arrow was pointing us. Not a whole lot of obstacles and most of the holes are pretty bland besides hole six and birdies are to be had and bogeys aren't going to happen much with so much open space.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty cool park and houses much of the activities of the town I suspect as this is a very small town. They have a large swimming pool, skate park and baseball fields as well as one of the largest and coolest slides I've ever seen that even adults would want to go on! There were bathrooms right next to the pool area. I'm not sure how the parks people found about disc golf in this area as the nearest course is quite a drive but they a decent job bringing a small course to the locals who can learn and enjoy disc golf.
