Good for midrange game

Pros: Great course for practicing your short game and for shaping shots. Heavily wooded but not terribly hard to find your disc if it goes astray.
Cons: Course layout can be a little confusing. Be sure to take a picture of the course map (found by hole #1) to help you along the way.

The chains aren't very forgiving, so throw with a soft touch.

Course is closed during school hours for the North KC School District.
Other Thoughts: All 18 holes are contained within a relatively small plot of land. The course is compact in that sense.

With very few "open" holes, this is a great course to sharpen your midrange game.

Pros: This is a great 18 hole course located in the woods between two schools. The course being in the woods makes this a very "technical" course. It will improve your short game accuracy. Good use of elevation change and land. Signs and map.
Cons: Baskets don't have two layers of chains. Tee pads are gravel and short (need some updating). Unable to play during school hours. First time playing you might have a little trouble navigating to the next hole. Possibility of losing discs in the bushes/creek.
Other Thoughts: Woods get really muddy after it rains. Overall a very fun quick course. Not really any long drives but it's fun!

Pros: Short/medium length technical wooded course
Uphill and Downhill holes
Requires use of all possible flight patterns
Scenic with very little traffic between the two schools
Very well maintained
Nice neighboorhood
Cons: Only a couple holes requiring the use of driver
Just a little hard to navigate at first
Other Thoughts: Felt inclined to write a review for this course based upon wishy washy prior reviews posted by others. Ive played this run more than most other people. Let me explain why and in my opinion why it deserves more merit.
This course has greatly increased my short game prowess. Although a little shorter than the average course it has plenty of holes in the 250-275ft mark. The trees are everpresent but not overwhelmingly daunting like ive seen on other courses.
Sculpting a fully thrown mid range on different lines and angles can be just as fullfilling as a full blown driver IMO.
The biggest area in which ive seen improvement in my game since playing FHF is short/approach shots. There are spaced throughout the trek a few holes ranging from 150-250 in addition to the 250+ ones mentioned above. Negotiating the challenging yet executable short range shots through the moderate woods here translates into the same shots being a cakewalk on other courses.
Guess this approach ties in with the advise i see constantly on forums. Meaning, the experienced players suggesting we all play putter/midrange rounds from time to time. This course demands it. The nice thing is that there ARE a couple/few holes that a fairway driver/driver can be utilized.
Furthermore, notice i didnt knock the gravel tee pads or gripe about their length. IMO with the shot requirements on this course its not as big of an issue. Most new courses take time to construct concrete tees initially anyways. im sure its on the horizon for this nice little new addition to kansas citys disc golf courses.
Two of my Favorite holes,
#4 Slightly uphill dogleg left. Easy tunnel shot off of the tee which opens up to a field with a line of trees guarding the basket on the left. At 260' there is a small opening revealing the baskets location on a small mound.
#18
Aproximatly 260' blind anhyzer shot which you must sculpt around the school. About 40ft behind the basket is the Red Caboose which im sure will be the signature of this fine little course.
Highly recommend trying this trek at least once if in the nkc area. Im sure it will only improve in time.

Elementary Course= tough course

Pros: Awesome use of land, great to always have a course for kids near kids. shot variety is very demanding and specific. Dont kid yourself this course test your ability to control a 250ft shot. And for being a shorter course its great that there are a couple of placement shot holes.
Cons: Teepads are gravel and short.
Other Thoughts: I was expecting an easier course, but if you arent scrambling for par, schools our for you.

Pros: Not a lot of wiggle room on the wooded shots. Takes some technical curves to get a good line through some. Nicely maintained. Prompt on repairs. Nicely laid out, good use of room.
Cons: Only one set of chains. Can't play during school hours. Tee pads are not very large.
Other Thoughts: Overall is a good short technical course. Can be played quickly. Nicely laid out between the schools, but limits the hours you are alowed to use.

Pros: + several difficult shots
+ some of the tightest tunnel shots in KC
+ navigation is very easy
+ makes very good use of the property
Cons: - teepads are small and gravel
- baskets only have 1 set of chains
- barely any distance
Other Thoughts: this is a kids course built for beginners. That said, it is still challenging just because the lines required to hit shots. Good place to practice woods and mids.
