Pros: -Concrete tees on every hole
-A lot of length on a few holes, definitely not a pitch and putt. You always need to think about how your second shot is going to look. There are shorter holes but most of those are really tight so they feel longer too. Accuracy is key here.
-Signage on every hole is detailed and it is never hard to find the next hole.
-Plenty of parking.
-This park is overall pretty nice, lots to do for the whole family. You could even camp here or stay in a cabin if you want to.
-Every shape of fairway you can think of. Perfect straight, curving every way, s-curves, big curves, small curves.
-This course really keeps you on your toes. One mistake can cost you a few strokes, a disc, 10 minutes of searching, etc.
-Multiple pin positions keep this course from getting dull. They are very different from each other too.
-You will probably be the only person out there, this course is secluded from the rest of the park.
-The designer put a solid 19 holes into a space that isn't nearly as big as it seems.
-Nice baskets all in good condition.
-Nice large sign with complete and accurate map at the start of this course.
Cons: -No elevation, this course is in the floodplain of the Platte River
-Super hard, you will throw into the rough. Beginners won't have fun here. In fact, they might never want to play again.
-Lots of bugs.
-Some may complain about the sand left over from floods that is on some fairways.
-Nettle and maybe a little Ivy. Rough is fairly thick and not fun to dig around in. I would recommend pants.
-Some of the holes were too narrow, like not fun type of narrow.
-Could lose a disc in the rough or even in the river with a really bad shot.
-Course can flood in the spring.
-I like ace runs and there weren't many of those here.
-The course got a little repetitive. The holes were all pretty fun but without any hills or much variance in the fairway width, they seemed to blend together a little bit.
Other Thoughts: -This course makes a great compliment to Norfolk's other course, Skyview. That course is a lot more hilly and open but still a lot of fun.
-Plan to spend a lot of time here. You will be thinking about your next shot, searching for discs, etc. This is not a quick round.
-I think only the very serious players in Norfolk play here. It doesn't appear to be overused but is definitely kept in good condition by somebody.
-The maps on here is from when the course was just a 9 holer. Some of the holes are the same but with different numbers. Just glance at the map at the start of the course and you will be fine.
-This course is kind of hard to find. It is South of the baseball field and North of the River. Look for the big sign.
-I played about 20 courses in the same day and this one is about tied with Cotton Mill in Kearney for the best course and is most certainly the most challenging course that I played in that trip.
-I am really surprised that I am the first person to review this course. I guess Norfolk, NE isn't the biggest place in the world and the challenge of this course might scare some off. Another hidden gem out there!
