Pros: This course offers a variety of shots and has short and long holes as well. There are dog legs left and right as well as tunnel shots. It is a fun and challenging course that is going to force you to work on hyzer and anhyzer shots, long controlled tunnel shots, and skip shots as well. There are also holes in which you can air it out. Really there is just about every kind of shot you can imagine, so bring your whole game. There are certain lines you must hit here to score well. Advanced players will be challenged here.
The land is used very well around the school grounds to make this disc golf course. The wind will also factor in on this course and offers and added challenge as well.
Here is a run down of how the holes play out.

#1-Straight shot with the basket on the east side of some trees. The pin is guarded.
#2-Has trees on the north side of the basket and offers either the hyzer or anhyzer angle. Be aware of the vet clinic on the left side of this hole.
#3-Has trees to contend with upon your approach.
#4-The first tunnel shot on this course with the basket dog legging to the right about 25 ft from the end of the tunnel.
#5-Is an open shot towards the two trees that are west of the equipment shed and then the hole dog legs to the left, see the photos.
#6-Pretty much a straight shot at the basket. Be careful not to throw too far into on coming traffic.
#7-Bombs away. Grip and rip. There is a road to the left of the hole so be careful here too.
#8-A long tunnel shot of approx 300 ft, then it dog legs to the left. Again see the photos.
#9-Is a long drive with a row of trees, and after that a grove of cedar trees in the middle. The basket is tucked in the cedar trees. Be careful not to hit the football press box on this hole. Also stay out of the cedar trees, they are not forgiving and getting out of that mess is not advised, trust me.
#10-Very similar to #9 just not as long.
#11-Hope and pray. If you look at the photos you will see what I mean. It is possible to throw a big anhyzer, but where it lands is anyones guess. Good luck on this hole.
#12-Finishes the course out much like it started. Open drive and a row of trees protecting the basket. There is a street on the left side of this hole that leads to the golf course so be careful.
Overall this is a fun and challenging course that is going to make you earn a good score.
Cons: There are no tee markers, only boards in the ground to mark each hole. However I couldn't find #1. I just teed off from in front of the high school. There are no numbers on the boards in the ground or on top of the baskets. I actually had to replay hole #5 because I didn't look at the map and shot at #7's basket. Homemade baskets are kind of iffy, however these caught decent, with the exception of #3. There were about 5 sets of chains that had come undone from the bottom catch ring.
Navigation is tricky at times, so printing the map is a must. There is a long walk from #2's basket to find #3's tee marker. Also you must backtrack from #5's basket to get to #6's tee. Again use the map and you will be fine.
On hole #10 there is a light pole right beside the board where you tee off. This could result in injury to a RHBH thrower on their follow thru. Not playable during school hours or school activities.
Beginners might find some of the holes to be frustrating, but they shouldn't be scared away.
Other Thoughts: Things that could improve this course, numbers on the boards and baskets, perhaps the distances for each hole on the tee marker board would help as well. However the distances are available with the printable scorecard under the links/files section. Moving the tee board so that it's in front of the light pole on #10 would be nice. You will likely have the course to yourself. I would advise playing here in the summer or on a weekend. With the various sports practices there is just too much risk involved. Obviously it is on school grounds so playing during school hours would not be a brilliant idea either.
Its a good course for a small town that uses what terrain is available. Its just too bad its out in the boonies, because it will make you a better player.
Also you might want to use the restroom before you play this course. You are on school grounds so be respectful, there are no facilities. Another piece of advice would be to bring your own drinks/snacks. There is not a mini-mart in town. By the way I would make sure you have gas in your vehicle as well, because the next closest town is 20-30 miles away.
Not a must play course by any means but if you are in the area give it a shot. It will be worth your time. I would play this again if it wasn't so far away.
