A tough challenge, more long shots
Pros: More long shots are good for a challenge
Good use of space and some clever placings
Quiet and peacful course
Cons: No wind blocks
Too long for par 3's
Other Thoughts: This is a nice change up from the shorter holes in Children's Park in town and a tough challenge for experts. Would not recomend on breezy day.
Interesting Use of Land

Pros: - Great length and a very creative use of tight spaces.
- Good baskets.
Cons: - A few of the holes are WAY too close to other park uses. Such as Hole 1...shoe-horned in between a tall fence and a parking lot. Lots of problems just waiting to happen with that hole (Hole 2 should probably have been the first hole on the course).
Other Thoughts: Played a lot longer/tougher than I expected before I arrived. A good workout, where one has to bring their A/B game off the tee, approaching, and putting, to do any positive damage on the scorecard.

Open Space is Right
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -A chance for a few aces
-Tees are marked
-Nice, new baskets
-Plenty of things to do at this community center/park and you have bathrooms, garbages, etc.
-A few holes that you really have to curve left or right.
-A decent variety in length although nothing is too long.
-You shouldn't lose a disc here- I'm not saying you can't
-Good for teaching beginners the game or working on shorter drives, approaches, or putts. You could play this course in 20-30 minutes if you wanted to
Cons: -Like I said, this is a multi use park and there could be people everywhere depending on time of day and what events are happening.
-The course does not loop around and the 9th hole is significantly far from the parking lot near the 1st hole.
-The first two holes use obstacles that I don't like, namely fences. Also, the second pin is on a strip of grass about 2 feet wide and if you miss you hit sidewalk or parking lot which can scuff up your disc.
-No elevation, very flat.
-Some of the holes just aren't very fun, the back half is certainly more fun than the first couple of holes. The first couple are open or have annoying but not fun obstacles.
-Tees are natural which isn't a problem yet on this new course but it could be if this course gets a lot of traffic
-Some of the back holes are tucked in pretty close to pine trees so you might get scraped and sapped up attempting to get your disc back.
Other Thoughts: This course is alright. It will be good for getting beginners into the game as it is in a high traffic park. I would play the Sioux Center DGC before this course. I wouldn't come to this course intentionally to play but if you are in the area you might as well play here.
