Surprising 9 hole
Pros: - Convenient location for golfers in the west des moines/urbandale area.
- Surprisingly long for a 9 hole course
- holes are creative and have a fine mix of ruffage/openness/trees.
- Great use of landscape and elevation, really adds character and challenge.
- Fairways are tight but well groomed.
Cons: - Ruff areas have quite a bit of heavy ground coverage and tall weeds. A wild disc may take a while to find.
- Right behind a police department but that is only on 2 holes, so not a problem for the majority of the course.
- a few of the hole's connecting paths through wooded areas are a bit overgrown and hard to find for the first timer.
Other Thoughts: I thoguht this course did a wonderful job on the 9 holes it has. They could have easily added a few holes on the land, but it seems like they really put thought into the course rather then overloading it with short holes. This is a course that will also test a great deal of your different techniques. A few downhill shots and a few killer uphill shots, not to mention tightly wooded fairways and one very small, but vicious water hazard. Took me and a friend just under an hour to get through it on our first time.
Very fun for only 9 holes!
Pros: The first hole is breath taking view. hole 6 is long with a creek to cross in the middle. all around very fun course
Cons: Big park, wish they could have done 18 holes. Need to be able to throw straight or u could have a troubling day

One of the best 9 holers out there
Pros: This course is great for a 9 hole course. It has multiple tee pads on 8 out of the 9 holes. Has one hole that might be one of the toughest 150 ft. It is a fair hole to play, but I have seen scores vary from 2-5.
Cons: The course is right next to a middle school, so trash is definitely a problem. Vandalism is also a problem. Most of the players there are rec players and damage the signage a great deal. I don't know how many signs are left out there.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, so I am a bit biased about it. I do believe though if you get past the trash and vandalism, that this is one of the best 9 hole courses in the US. And others have made the same comment.
