Pros: -It is a course in a place that you wouldn't expect one.
-Park is fairly nice with other things to do.
-Friendly locals, both discers and non.
-Baskets are baskets and are labeled with a flag on top.
-Probably won't lose a disc here as long as you avoid the bushy conifers along 4 and 5.
-It is easy to find, just drive in from 85 and it is the little parking lot on the right as you get into town.
Cons: -I saw a dog with booties on and was wondering why. Later I found sharp stickers stuck into my shoes. If you like to play without shoes or bring pets, beware.
-If there ever happens to be two groups here at the same time, it could be trouble. The next tee is usually within a few feet of the last basket.
-Tees are just a strip of wood buried in the sandy soil. Can be very hard to see if you don't know where they are. The only one that is really hard to find is 1, the others are all close to the last basket.
-A walking path runs dangerously close to the course and there are a few blind throws that go right near the path. Hole 4 was especially bad. A blind basket through a gap that was almost completely taken up by the path.
-Course doesn't loop, you have to play out and walk back in.
-Lots of other stuff to do at the park and if that is being used you will have to be careful or skip holes.
-No signage of any kind.
Other Thoughts: It was a good effort to put a course on what I assume is the only park in this very small town. I wouldn't go out of the way to play this course but if I lived in a town that small (in Wyo especially) I would be happy to play there. There isn't much in the way of food and fuel here so plan accordingly. As you drive into the parking lot, the tee for hole one is off to the left (facing south).

Pros: The course is very easy to navigate, as all baskets are marked with large flags and hole #'s.
Would make a good beginner course, as well as a challenging putter/midrange course.
Holes 3,4,6, & 7 present some technical challenges to keep it interesting for more experienced players.
Lots of ace potential.
Cons: Course is quite short and amateur oriented.
Baskets are cheap and installed very low to the ground, but at least they're chains.
All holes have the walkway in play, many pins located very close to the walkway.
Hole 3 drives directly over an RC car track.
Holes 5 and 6 are blind drives around corners of the pathway, use a spotter.
Natural tees, some in rough shape, directly adjacent to baskets.
No tee signs.
No grass on fairways from hole 6 onward (yet).
Course is linear and does not loop back to its start point, boring walk back to the car.
Other Thoughts: The course is a quick nine installed in a newly developed park, and is very beginner friendly. The park is multi-use, so a walkway, RC car track, baseball diamond, and small rodeo arena come into play. Tees are marked by a landscaping timber that is buried horizontally in the ground immediately adjacent to the previous holes pin. I couldn't find a marker for the tee on hole 1, so I played it from the sidewalk near the parking lot. Holes 6 and 7 have tight fairways defined by fences from farmland and the rodeo arena. Seating for the arena is also located near hole 7, so this could pose a problem. Hole 8 will most likely have water in play after rainstorms, the pin is near a water catch-basin. 8 & 9 also provide the only mild elevation shots on the course. The course will hopefully get better with age, as it appears many new trees are being planted and fairways are being seeded. I posted some links to a scorecard and contact info, as well as some quick pics i took. Make note, the town is very small and does not have many services, so plan accordingly.
