Smooth and Gorgeous
Pros: -Very visually pleasing park and course.
-All but hole #1 is well kept and maintained, grass is usually fresh-cut and fairways in back half are nicely distinguishable.
-Great mix of mid-range and long-distance shots.
-Trash cans at every tee during first half.
-Very forgiving and reasonable, you are not likely to lose a disc.
-Front 9 are loads of fun, and back half is spectacular.
Cons: -Well hidden away in florissant.
-OB on back half is troublesome and could use some slack.
-Hole #1 sports inexplicably long grass and a trip through a marsh.
Other Thoughts: Easily one of the best courses in St. Louis county. I would not hesitate to return. Don't let hole #1 scare you off.

Pros: Good walking, nice layout, great time overall
Cons: some wet crossings (there is a bridge now), thick woods for disk to hide
Other Thoughts: First course I played to begin by disk golf hobby, go back almost 3 times weekly, takes about 45m to play the front 9 and is a lot of fun!

Needs info updated
Pros: I am fairly new to disc golf and I find this a fun course that I keep going back to. I love how it is like two different styles of courses in one. The front 9 are in woods with foliage and obstacles and the back 9 are in a field with well distinguished fairways and out of bounds.
The tees are marked and have a picture of the hole lay out.
Cons: The only negative thing I can think of is that the natural Tee's seem to always be muddy so I throw to the side of them.
Other Thoughts: This course needs to be updated on this website. They reworked and rearranged most of the back 9 holes and so the distance and pars are wrong as listed on here. The course map on here is wrong too. If someone can track the information and update it that would help.

Pros: Great terrain - elevation changes
Very well maintained park - kudos to the City of Florrisant Parks department!!!
Another stellar layout from Dave McCormack @ Gateway Disc - good mix of technical shots and longer drives - Gateway Titan baskets - the BEST
Fairly easy to navigate - scorecard/map at Tee 1
Sand trap OB's - added skill dimension
Two tee and two pin positions
Fairly tight marked fairways on long field shots - another added skill dimension
40ft tall stand of bamboo growth incorporated on a few holes - exotic for the mid-west
Could extoll further but certainly an awesome addition to the metro St. Louis constellation of courses!
Cons: New course, so grass tees (had just rained the day before so a run-up was at your own risk on several holes - mud-slide)
Distance between a couple of tees a bit much
Difference between Red and Blue tee positions a bit ridiculous on more than a few holes (not significant enough)
Other Thoughts: Most Cons I could think of will probably be obviated by pending improvements. Play this course - you won't regret it!

Pros: Front 9 play very well very nice mix had a few ace runs for me nice not to wooded play around for the most part but few holes go in, natural pads are good not my fav but better than most. Back 9 wide open except for 2 shots which are fun and ace runs behind the bamboo forest. Love the ob and traps idea on back 9
Cons: back 9 when windy plays hell with disc's, 600-800ft holes not my thing you still have people walking and running so watch out, park is big in past for kite flyers
Other Thoughts: Love the ob and sand traps idea would love to se more of this on every course
