Use the Woods!
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Some decent elevation, 2 especially comes to mind.
-Trees in the way here and there.
-The distance was fairly varied and not too short. A good amount of distance for most disc golfers.
-Signs aren't too bad. Informative enough.
Cons: -Pretty open, I would have much preferred it if the holes would go into the woods more. It would also block the sun and the wind much more than it does now. I don't know why they worked along the edges of the woods instead of going in there.
-Some of the fairways crossed and got really close together. Shouldn't be a real problem unless this course gets a lot more popular.
-Natural tees. I am wondering if those will be updated further.
Other Thoughts: Sioux City is in desperate need of a legit disc golf course. There isn't one in the whole area. This and Sertoma are decent but not great 9 holers and Crystal Cove in South Sioux is worse and 18 holes. I wouldn't say that any of these courses are really worth stopping at but they would suffice if you lived in Sioux City.
-I think this course has a decent amount of room for both improvement on its current layout and for expansion. That would be exciting.

Short course, good to play every now and then
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Good for beginners. Some very interesting shots (uphill and downhill). Designer was very creative with the space. Short and can play fast if you are looking for a few quick rounds.
Cons: After a few times playing this course it would get dull fast.

Nice course on small college campus!
Pros: -Nice course for college students, or residents in the area.
-The baskets were new and in excellent shape.
-No tee boxes yet, but it appears that they will be put in soon.
-Same goes for tee signs, they more than likely will be put in soon.
-Good distance variaton--a few around 400, but also a few around 200.
-Good use of the land there to have trees and such in the fairways to create a bit of a challenge.
-It is a challenge to birdie the holes, but it is fun in the process.
-One hole sticks out to me, Hole 4. The tee is right in front of a line of about 8-12 trees, and the basket is right behind the last tree. That hole is fun!
-Another hole that is another of my favorites is hole 2--a straight bomb shot down a hill. Unleash your driver on this one!
-I was told by a worker on the campus that they will be putting discs for sale in a building on the campus near the course... Sweet!
-I'm sure that Alumni of WIT will have a great time here!
Cons: -Only 9 holes.
-I'm guessing it is still in the process of being completed--No legit tee signs or tee boxes yet.
-This is only a concern on hot days, but there was no shade to take note of, except near the baskets of a few.
-Intersecting fairways--could be a hassle if there are multiple people on the course.
-There is a slight chance of tossing a disc into some trees.
-It doesn't seem like there was much thought put into this course--just seems slopped together.
Other Thoughts: I stopped here with my dad and we had a very good time. It was his first time but he still did quite well. It is a nice little course for beginners. I prefer Sertoma to this, but this is much better for first timers. I still recommend this to everyone because it is still fun and a good challenge!
