Pros: This course is well maintained. The course was freshly mowed, and trees are all trimmed. It is a variety of shot types including one brutal left handed hole (#6). It would be hard to lose a disc here. The baskets are new, even though they aren't the highest quality, they have no physical damage. Also, it is in the village of Malcolm, so you get the small town charm.
Cons: The biggest downside is Hole 3. While it is cool throwing over a bridge, there is a playground that is also in the way. If any kid is playing, lookout! Furthermore, the course doesn't have all of the tee markers.
Hole 2 is a bit scary because there is a parking lot 20 feet behind the basket.
Hole 4 and Hole 1 are gone. Maybe temporarily, but not there when I played.
Other Thoughts: This would be a great backyard course. By that I mean, I would be more than happy to have it out of my backyard. I also mean that I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way for the course either. If you get bored of Max and Tierra for the 40th time, go try this one. You can do a round in less than 15 minutes if you really want.

Pros: Solid baskets.
Easy in an enjoyable way.
Great course for the size of the area.
Cons: Short course.
Highway traffic in play.
Playground in play.
Tees are 4x4 posts buried in the dirt horizontally.
Wind can be a factor.
Other Thoughts: Neat little course tucked into this town. I would feel uncomfortable playing this with children playing on the equipment. This course is excellent for as small as the park is.

Small and Fun
Pros: A small but beautiful park which is well kept which makes for a short but enjoyable round. The park is well maintained by the town of Malcom and seems to be in a lot better shape than most small town parks in Nebraska.
The catchers are Mach 2 catchers with the signs on top which indicate which hole they are supposed to be. This made navigating the course a little easier considering the tees were marked by painted planks of wood anchored into the ground.
Little to no chance of loosing a disc at this course but yet it is small and fun enough that it would be an enjoyable place to work on your game without the fear of loosing a disc or having to worry about any serious distance while your throwing. You could play this course over and over in a short period of time and not feel wore out.
Cons: No vertical tee signs or concrete teepads which sometimes made finding the next tee a bit hard especially on hole 4 where the teepad is a wood plank on a slope facing away from the basket on hole 3.
Holes 5 and 6 are very close to the highway coming in to town so be mindful of cars before throwing while playing these holes.
Other Thoughts: This course is not a challenge for a more experienced player but would be enjoyable for anyone working on their short to midrange game or looking for a good place to have a disc golf family outing for everyone.
Holes 1, 5, 7, and 9 have no trees that really come into play. Holes 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 have a lot more trees that come into play and provide a bit more of a chance to work on throwing hyzers, anhyzers, or thumbers.
I personally will revisit this course more in the future because it will be a great place to have a short but fun round while working on learning how to be a better disc golfer.
