Pros: Good signage at tees. Scorecards are/were provided (I think I got the last one). Good baskets. Excellent use of terrain. Quiet and peaceful for being in town. Laid out nicely so you finish near where you start. Very fun and challenging course for a short nine holer. Friendly locals. Easy to follow from basket to tee.
Cons: Poor parking. There is construction in town now which makes the directions to the park a little confusing. The directions provided here lead you to a dead end street with no parking. However the locals had no problem with me parking my camper along the street. The course had natural tees with wood chips. Some were uneven and could get muddy in spring time.
Other Thoughts: This course has to be the funnest and most challenging 9 hole course I've played. For what it lacks in distance it makes up for in technical skill. Just because the hole is 120ft don't expect aces or even birdies too often. Of all the courses I've played today on my 4 states, 4 courses, 36 hole expirience this one was the best! By far worth the trip from Cedar Rapids to play!

best SHORT course ive played
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: While being a small course w short holes the layout is very impressive! If i was closer id make it a daily course. Lots of hard lines on some very short (120') holes making birdies a challenge at that length. Nice post signage. Found pretty easy to navigate.... although i did turn some signs to actually fqce the basket. Also had a printed map at tee one to carry and return. A nice touch ive never seen
Cons: Signage was facing crazy directions. Turned to help other but who knows if that will stay
Other Thoughts: Already plan to play this again. When in the area

Hidden, NEW gem

Tee pads (2/5); There were no "real" tee pads to speak of. A bunch of unlevel mulch is laid out for tee pads, and at least they are marked by red Innova buttons in the ground.
Baskets (5/5); Brand spankin' new, double chained Innova Discatchers. Numbered with bright yellow tops.
Layout/Design (2.5); The layout makes great use of the small land provided. The course is very short, but contains a nice variety of lines. There are a few shots that I've never seen before. There isn't much elevation or any water to speak of. The course loops well to a parking lot from hole #1 to hole #9. You could experience a little difficulty finding the next tee in order, and it gets kind of confusing with the baskets all cramped in a small area. I've never seen anyone else playing this course, but I can't imagine a tournament being possible; people would be yelling "FORE!" constantly.
Scenery/Surroundings (3/5); The course is extremely clean and well manicured, in a very nice neighborhood. The scenery, however, is very typical of a small-town, Iowa setting, and lacks any eye-popping views. No tee signs. Lots of squirrels dropping nuts, watch out!
Likeliness to Return (5/5); I will most certainly return to this course. It's in great condition, easy to get to, and hardly anyone knows about it! I always have the course to myself. Its a great a place to work on your short game. The new lines and ace runs are very fun. Overall, its my FAVORITE 9-hole course.
Cons: Read above^^
Other Thoughts: I believe this course is Innova sponsored.

Pros: Easy course to find with parking close to first tee. Lots of details went into this course. The teesigns are merely hole number and distance, but are in excellent shape and each one faces towards you after completing each hole. Thus, navigation is pretty easy. Though there are lack of teepads, there are nice Innova teemarkers on the ground that indicate tee area. Baskets are Innova Discatchers in new condition. Large and small trees throughout the course that come into play on every hole. It is easy to see how well thought out this course is. Though the holes are short, it makes great use of the elevation and trees to make for some fun shots. An excellent course for beginners to learn on. Experienced players can just take a putter and work on their short game and go for aces. The park itself is clean and well mowed. Fairways are easily defined and it would be difficult to lose a disc here.
Cons: It is difficult to really speak of any cons for this course. It is designed as a short 9 hole course for beginners. It does that well. Teepads are dirt/mulch that could become muddy, but minimal run up is needed anyway.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to bring a new player into the game. Easy short holes with just enough challenge that will keep everyone happy. Although I didn't get an ace, it was fairly easy to hit metal on many of the baskets. One of the best beginner courses I have played.
