Pros: -Great location for course off of 13th Street near ISU campus
-Great variety of shots to test all of your discs from your bag
-I like the choice you have for each hole, 2 tee pads and 2 pins each. Which makes for 4 different shot options
-Trash cans located everywhere, very green course.
-Clean and mowed every time i've visited
-Good course for new or experienced players.
-Restroom at start of course
-Signs show where next hole begins and is very first-timer friendly
-Great course to grab yourself an ace on!
-Locals are very friendly and if you need to ask a question, don't hesitate!
-Hole 10 starts at the gate with end of 18 and beginning of 1 for easy access to front and back 9.
Cons: -Some holes have horrible lines which make for impossible shots (i.e. hole 4) which has no open room in between trees for a good line.
-No drinking fountains or vending machines on course or at start
-Quite easy to lose a disc, recommend only throwing 1 or 2 per hole
-Some beginner pins can be in your line to the advanced pin which can affect your shot mentally and possibly physically
-Kind of hard to find the course behind the gates and junk in the parking lot
Other Thoughts: Great course for having a quick round on one of the beginner routes or a fun round on the long advanced holes. Watch out on hole 15 for the tree in the middle of the fairway. It has a giant knot-hole in it that I got my Nuke SS stuck in. (: Thanks to a couple buddies, I got it back. HA. Anyways, Definitely a must do course if you are dropping by in Ames.

Pros: -Diverse hole types
-I've seen maintenance crews working on the course multiple times
- Most holes have pro/am tees and short/long baskets, allowing for good replay value
Cons: -Can be closed due to flooding
-Lots of stinging nettle
Other Thoughts: Many people in the Ames area refer to this course as "13th St DGC"

Pros: Nicely laid out course with really tight front nine and open back nine!
Cons: Front nine can get frustrating but still its a good time!
Other Thoughts: It is a great course that will challenge the best but is still playable for beginners!
