MOW THE FAIRWAYS ON THE BACK 9
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Only 18 hole in the immediate Sioux City area
-Lots of variety
-Front 9 good for recreational players and/or beginners
-Handful of hard pars for well-seasoned players
-couple of ace runs
Cons: -Rules state "no alcohol"
-Back 9 is brutal if you go off the beaten path; watch where those discs go, or you're GOING to lose plastic
-Houses close to fairways on 14 and 15, an errant shot can make for a break from playing to go knock on someone's door to retrieve plastic from fenced backyards
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course. I actually live in Oregon, and this course felt more like home to me in comparison to Sertoma or WIT. There's a few easy shots, a few hard holes, and a bit of play in the trees :) I would give this one a better rating, but the possibility of losing plastic is entirely too high. TALL GRASS IS MY BITTER ENEMY, and the back 9 has PLENTY of it. If someone would just mow some of it (particularly hole 11) I would have been much more impressed with the layout. A 700 foot hole does NOT need a 15ft wide fairway with 3ft tall grass on the sides. Other than that though, I enjoyed playing here. I'm actually going back today, but considering that I'm taking my grandma with me to play, we'll be restricted to the front 9 in order to have more fun than time spent hunting for discs. Open up the faiways more, and I would probably rate this course a 3.5 or 4. Throw bright colors, and enjoy :)

It's not that bad.

Pros: -Some really long holes and lots of ace runs make for an interesting shot variation.
-Signage (see below as well)
-Front 9 is pretty well manicured, clean and mowed
-Some decent pin locations and tree placements made for some fun shots
Cons: -The back 9 is only for disc golf and as a results doesnt get as much attention as the rest of this multi use park
-Some of the landing areas on the longer holes are a bit ridiculous and could afford to be widened
-Could lose a disc in the tall grass or maybe the water with a real bad throw
-The signage is that really vague kind with stickers on a white background. It is fine if you can see just one hole but if you can't see any or can see more than one it is a problem. The signs are also mounted right into the tees which is annoying.
-The flow is ok through the front 9 but isn't as good through the back 9. Some navigation signs would be very helpful.
Other Thoughts: This course had a decent fun factor for me with a lot of different lengths of shots as well as some danger with the water and tall grass on the back 9. The grass wasn't as ridiculous as it seems to have been for other reviewers. This course is about the same quality as the other two in the SC area. It gets a little boost for being 18 instead of 9. None of the courses are truly worth a stop but none will severely disappoint either. This course could really improve with a little more maintenance including better mowing, and better signage on some of those longer holes.

Better than the reviews lead on
Pros: Nice park with shelters, restroom, garbage cans, concrete tee pads. For a right hander, has some challenging anhyzer shots (2, 6), tunnel shots, a couple of tight OB lines (13, etc.).
Cons: Hole 7 is a ridiculous tunnel shot through the woods. Hole 11 & 16 rough was at least 40", with the grass tassels over 6' tall. Most farmers would bale this hay. Living in Kansas though, crazy as it may sound, I found the grass a little more forgiving in that it didn't tear at your skin when you walked through it. Hole 17 tee pad was still under water. The Missouri River 2 miles away is at historic flood levels causing other bodies of water to not drawn well, this pond included. I just teed off 3' to the left of it.
Other Thoughts: Mainly, the other reviews are very good in their detail, but a little harsh in their score. This course is better than the average 0.83 given to it so far.
