2 hole course?
Pros: -Unique baskets. Also very sturdy, props to whomever made them
-This is a really nice park with about everything you expect to find in a small town park and more including a water park, campground, multiple baseball fields, volleyball courts, benches, walking paths, etc
-Close to I-80, easy to find
Cons: -Dangerous. Holes 1 and 2 and 7-9 are the least dangerous and they are still pretty much not playable if there is a soccer game for 1-2 or a baseball game for 7-9. The other ones throw over parking lots, sidewalks, and right through the volleyball court. There simply isn't enough room for everything they tried to put into this course.
-The flow is horrible. 1 and 2 are easy to find but then 3 is far away and the gap from 6 to 7 was horrible too. Very poor signage doesn't help at all.
-Course is flat, short, and unimaginative. Even if it weren't dangerous, it wouldn't be very fun.
Other Thoughts: -This course is in the middle of what might be one of the worst stretches of disc golf out there. This course, Palmer Park in Brady and Plum Creek in Lexington are really bad. The course in Gothenburg pulls up the average very slightly.
-This place really isn't worth a stop for any reason unless you are a course bagger like me. There are multiple other reasons to stop while traveling I-80 so that's not a reason either.
-Like I said earlier, there really isn't room for a course here. They might not have another adequate park in town so I can't blame them.
unique baskets is the only reason to stop

Pros: Interesting vintage playground and water park.
Cool little homemade baskets.
Cons: Safety was not considered in this course: Hole 1 field on left and playground on right, unplayable when park is busy. Hole 2 had playground on right of fairway without much for error. Hole 3 had horseshoe area less than 20 feet from basket. Hole 4's tee was directly infront of volleyball area. Hole 5 played directly over volleyball court. Hole 6 played along a fence and over basket 5. Hole 8 actually encourages unsafe play. The reward for throwing over the softball field is far greater than playing the safe route.
Flow was poor, worse navigation. I wasted a lot of time looking for hole 4. I am pretty sure there was a random basket by tee 4 that was never used in the course.
Hole 6 seemed like a pointless add on hole. You walk from basket 5 to tee 6, just to throw over basket 5 again.
Tees were just posts with hole number and distance.
Sprinklers still on 8:00am, 3 different sprinklers directly hit basket 3, so you have to play Indiana Jones and dodge the water to play hole 3.
Other Thoughts: I am really into unique baskets, but that was all this course had to offer. Minimal challenge, Weak flow, bad navigation, and abysmal safety defines this course.

Pros: Very close to interesting obstacles, such as open backyards, and batting cages. Charming locals helped liven up some of the holes.
Cons: The course was short and very flat. Grass tees are not much fun either. We came after a rain and it was unfortunately muddy, but that was uncontrollable.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy going to small town's disc golf courses. This one was no exception.

I Heard Singing to the Disc Golf Gods!
Pros: Ok this park is very well maintained and it is really beautiful. The tee signs are clearly posted and the grass tees are, umm, grassy! ;) There's nothing technical or fancy about the holes on this course. Bathrooms and trashcans do make an appearance.
Cons: This park is quite the hangout for the locals. (Side note: There was even a guy and 3 women all dressed up singing really loud about something religious. I was looking to see if it was a cult and if they had some hot branding irons…sorry I am so mean sometimes. ;) ) It is such a great hang out, that they will actually camp themselves right in the middle of the holes to watch kids play soccer as there is nowhere else that they can do that. These baskets have been painted and are a bit stiff. You may have to putt REALLY firm to prevent a bounce out.
Other Thoughts: This obviously is for the littler kids; a par 6 of 370 feet? Yikes! That would make you getting a 2 on that hole a Double Albatross? Huh, never heard of such a thing. ;) Anyway, with the basket conditions and crowdedness, it is not recommend, especially when you almost have to skip some of the first 3 holes to avoiding hurting someone.
The first few holes play along this long line of trees right next to the soccer fields and then follows the cinder track most of the way around the park.
