Pros: I love elevation change, and this course has lots of it. It occupies a beautiful piece of land that feels very Nebraska. Sunset on the lake was gorgeous. There are some shotmaking challenges and length challenges. The ruggedness of the course sometimes adds to the fun. I give it a 3, because even with all its faults, it could be a great course--and it's an adventure compared to the mowed-grass, park courses we see so much of.
Cons: Once you begin, there is very little indication that you are on a golf course at all. "Links" may be a euphemism for "no fairway." The dense underbrush of grass, bushes, and short trees certainly define this course, both in playability and golf skills required. All you really need is a high anny, hyzer, or overhand to get you over whatever obstacle's in front of you and float for some distance. Then you'll spend 2-10 minutes looking for your disc, which (if placed well or poorly) certainly landed out of view. Then approach with a shorter over-the-top shot, and make a putt. Even if you've played this course 20 times, playing without a spotter will require a solid few hours of battling bugs and brush. I played the B tees. I couldn't see the pin from the tee in 14 cases. Some tees were so surrounded by branches that no golf shot was possible. I just had to find an opening and hope. Some tees were missing entirely. The only way I completed this course was the map I printed (linked from DGCR). It took 2:15 hrs, only because of good throws and a non-playing spotter.
Other Thoughts: If you love safari golf and the Nebraska wilderness, PRINT THE MAP, and tackle this baby. Until they clear out some serious vegetation, I won't be back.

  "Ticked" Off

Pros: Nice scenery, beautiful area, fun course,
Cons: hard to find the beginning and each of the next holes, low maintenance, prepare to walk through tall grass and trees looking for discs
Other Thoughts: We played the first three holes and left after finding 60+ ticks combined on our family (5 people). Not a pleasant experience cleaning all the ticks off. Can't speak to the quality of the last 15 holes.

 Fun Course that needs updated

Pros: The challenge for me is a pro. Lots of trees and elevation changes make this a fun course to play.
Cons: Not real well kept up. The tees are hard to find on some holes and due to overgrowth of smal trees, the baskets are hard to find as well.
Other Thoughts: This is a good course that with a bit of TLC could be an excellent course.
