The Best "School Course" Ever!
Pros: Course is located right next to an elementary school in a fairly wooded "block" of land. Trees were used very well. They put a technical part to the course, but didn't make the holes ridiculous. Each hole had a different fairway shape to it, forcing you to use several different shots. The rubber tee pads had excellent grip, and were very flat. The tee signs were amazing! Probably the best I've ever seen. Monkey Trap baskets are always good. (Although they really seem to hate left side putts...) There is one "spoke" (I don't know what else to call it") of the basket that is painted black to show where the next tee is. Very helpful, and I think it is the best way to show the next tee. Benches located at every tee pad and bag holders on the tee signs are very nice.
Cons: Big drivers will not like the length of these holes. The longest hole is about 360 ft. There is no water or bathrooms. The best place to park is on the grass. If you take a long X-step, the tee pads will be way to short. The ground behind it is flat enough to run up onto them, but it would be nice to have about five more feet of rubber.
Other Thoughts: Out of every course on a school I've played, this has to be the best one. It's a great place to show a beginner how to play. Or if you are having a disc golf slump this is a real confidence booster (I shot six down!).

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Pros: Fun, fun, fun! Well-planned on a school property, so it is not super long. The course is well-kept, even in summertime. New benches everywhere, nice monkey-trap baskets, signage is great. The holes offer a test of accuracy, with enough trees to make you pay for a poor throw. The trees give you shade on every hole to stand in. There is a fair balance of left-right holes. It is a great course to take your wife or GF to play during vacation, which is what I did. We were in Eureka vacationing from SW Louisiana, and came down to Rogers to buy knives at A.G. Russell. I will certainly play this one again anytime I can. Sign poles have bag hooks, but spiders have claimed a few of them.
Cons: No water. No online course map. You have to figure out a couple of next tees, but that didn't take too long. Must park on the grass. No rest room, but it is a school so during the school year the students can go inside. Tee pads are short. Totally flat, except for some dirt piles.
Other Thoughts: This is just a well-designed, fun course. I would love to live near it. Kudos to the guys who put in in. First time on Monkey Traps, but I had no spit outs.

Pros: This course if pretty well laid out. It is largely flat with no water to be seen. It is wooded, shaded, and short. This is a quick course to play (~30 - 45min). Playing in the middle of the day on a Saturday we only saw 2 other groups and didn't feel rushed. The signage that is there is very good, though it could use some to point to the next hole. There are some narrow channels to drive through on some holes and it would be nice to have a couple Mando's. There are bag hooks at every hole, though some are pretty beat up. The tee pads are in really good shape but a little short.
Cons: It would be nice to have a couple Mando's.
There are a couple places where finding the next tee box is difficult. Hole 8 is the most difficult to find. It would be nice if there were markers near the pin to point to the next hole, or include the direction to the next hole on the diagram at the tee box.
While not a ton, there was a considerable amount of trash around.
There is a commercial bakery across the street which had my stomach growling the whole time.
This is not a lunch time course as you cannot play during school hours. Be sure to read the rules on this site before heading over. It is a small area and some fairways play pretty close to each other. Keep an eye out for stray discs.
Short tee pads could cause a step off.
Some spots of heavy leaf litter buried a couple of my discs, make sure you know where yours land.
It may just be me having a bad day, but the Monkey trap baskets seemed to be spitting out some good putts.
No bathroom on site.
Other Thoughts: Park on the bus road.
Some of the holes are somewhat close to the road which can intimidate a new player into playing short.
This is a great course. It isn't the same challenge as Lake Bella Vista and there is no water to contend with. I will be playing this course again. It is a good, but challenging, course to bring a beginner.
