Pros: Crestview is a nice course nestled back in a fairly wooded park with very large, mature trees. The 18 holes offer a variety of shots and distances. The pins are moved pretty regularly so you never know what you'll get. Concrete tees are nice and long, baskets are nice.
The park is well maintained and mowed. The large trees provide a lot of shade and protection from the wind. This is my favorite park to take my kids to on a hot day.
Cons: Minimal elevation shots due to being a fairly flat course (not a bad thing if you're wanting to save your legs). Course layout can be fairly confusing if you've never played there before. Holes cross back on eachother. Recommend playing with a local if you can first time through. Some layouts are more confusing than others. The last few holes cross roads that sometimes cars like to park on.
Other Thoughts: An alternate location for hole #10 is back in the trees. Head towards the busy road and the stream from hole #6 tee (hole #9 basket area).

Pros: Good course thats not too tight, not too open. It does encourage you to hit your gaps or get in some trouble. This is the course to play in Topeka if it's windy, as the wind doesn't blow quite as hard on this course as some others. Multiple pins on every hole. NEW BASKETS.
Cons: The new baskets need another set of chains. Spit outs very common.

Crestview - diamond in the rough
Pros: This is nice course tucked into a pretty compact area. Has bathrooms at the parking area.
Hole number 1 starts right off with a significant tree challenge. we played with pin located short which was barely visible from the tee due to trees.
This course has lots of mature trees, and pins are placed to encourage the low shots (which is not necessarily good for those of us who still have a tendency to let one ride high) but makes accuracy a must.
A couple of open holes which allowed us to air it out without worry. Most of the time we found ourselves with a unique approach to a pin from behind a tree, up a short hill, or in a couple cases throwing without sight of the pin from the tee.
This was a really fun course. i took my son and two girls on a campout to Lake Shawnee specifically to play this course and Lake Shawnee. we quit after three holes on the Lake course - way to windy & all i saw was large open expanses that didn;t look like much fun to continue. If you're in the area, this is a great course to play! Hardly anyone there on a beautiful Saturday morning.
Cons: Tough with the wind, but that's probably more me than anything else.
Other Thoughts: probably would not play again since it is an hour from home and i have many equal and better options, but worth the trip with the kids!
