  great for a small town course

Pros: Amazing technical course that will keep you coming back! I played this course every day for two months and I still enjoy the challenge. Hole one is sweet, because you have to decide between a huge anny up and around the trees, or a skip shot that bounces up the hill to the pin. Hole 7 offers a great challenge as well. It is a very tight fairway that you can birdie if thrown perfect. The teepads are all concrete, with good grip, even when wet. Great neighborhood, too!
Cons: Harldly any... Some cleaning out and trimming branches would be in order here. Also as some have mentioned, it does feel a little bit cramped at times, especially if many others are playing at the same time.
Other Thoughts: This course is always well mowed, and the signage and the baskets are perfect. There has been a lot of thought put into making this a challenging course. Hats off to the designer and the town for keeping the course up.

Pros: The baskets and tees are excellent. There is also several good holes that are fun to play.

Hole 1 is a very cool little shot. Would be better to play to 3's basket as must right handed shots collect at 1's basket.

Hole 3 is a nice little uphill anhyzer to the top of the hill.

Hole 8 is my favorite hole on the course. Gentle downhill 350 foot shot.
Cons: DANGEROUS!!! For both players and other park users!

The basket for holes 1 and 3 are a jump putt apart. Many people that don't know about the mando on 2 will be "scalping" people playing hole 3.

Hole 2 has an unmarked mando, and forces an anhyzer, many drives are going to end up in the backyards!

Hole 5 basically forces a shot over the road. There is also a hidden picnic area that you cannot see from the tee, but you may hit it.

Hole 7 the route needs cleaned out.
Other Thoughts: This place would/could be a much better play if 3 baskets were removed. Move some of the tees farther from the baskets.

For a small town it is a cool course. The most people you are going to have on the course at anytime is less then 5, so safety isn't a huge concern.

Worth the stop if you are burning some time.

Pros: Good mix of wooded and open holes - a good mix of terrain makes for a variety of shots over the course of even 9 holes. Good location, although the pool was not open when I played, I imagine that the course gets quite a bit more traffic in the summer.
Cons: A lot of relatively short holes, but that makes you focus on precision - there are very few places to just bomb a drive.
Other Thoughts: A very nice course to play if you are in the area. Signage is nice, and is seems to be well kept.

 Accuracy is the key

Pros: This is a very nice small town 9 hole course. As previously stated, there are plenty of trees on this course to contend with. This signs now have distances as of my visit today. Hole #1's basket is up on a hill. #4's basket is heavily guarded by 2 big evergreen trees. #3's basket is also up on a hill, close to #1's basket. #5 as stated previously is the longest hole. #6 is a straight shot, assuming your accuracy is on, as the basket is tucked into the trees. Going to the right allows you an easier path but makes this hole play longer. On #7 you have 2 options, either hit your line on the left and make it thru the clearing or take the righty path around the big evergreen tree. Beware on #7 if you play in the summer time because it goes to the north towards the swimming pool.
Cons: I agree with scarpfish, this is a 9 holer that is crammed for space. There really is no hole that you can air it out on with the exception being #5. When the smaller trees in this park that are in the fairways mature, this course is going to be even more challenging.
Other Thoughts: There was no traffic at this course the day that I played, granted it was a Sunday and in November. The signs can be a little misleading but they are better than some courses that I have played. About the only place you could lose a disc would be on #5 if you went way to the left or #7 if you went into the pool. Other than that the trees would be the only place you might lose a disc. This is a fun course, but you must have accuracy because off the tees there are trees and guarding some of the pins there are trees as well. For a small town course this is a good use of the land. Tight lines and good obstacles to contend with. Would be a good course to stop at if you were in the area or passing thru on a road trip.

 Okay for a small town, but kinda crammed

Pros: A good recreational to intermediate level course. Unlike a lot of small town courses, this one has decent distance and foliage to add challenge and some tricky lines that you have to hit. Concrete tees and signs, although as of my visit the signs had no distances on them. Hole 5, the longest hole in the park with an OB road and creek to the left, and some trees to the right is particularly challenging.
Cons: About the biggest complaint for me would be that this park has nine holes crammed into a space more meant for around six. Fairways are practically right on top of each other. The righty route for Hole 2 goes right over the top of Hole 3's fairway. A number of the holes seem lefty-biased. Could be some safety issues on some holes if there are a lot of other people in the park.
Other Thoughts: Not the best presentation of a small town nine holer, but better than many I've seen. Yeah, the crammed holes are kind of a bummer, but in a small town like Moundridge you can get away with this as if you come here to play, you may very well be the only ones playing. In a larger city with lots of players, a park like this would never be considered for a course. Not a must play by any means, but good for a quick nine, approach practice, or if you're with noobs or the kids. Watch for non-DG'ers as the course is new and right next to other amenities like the swimming pool.
