Great scenery and fun play
Pros: Really loved this course - played this right after River Run and it is a great complimentary design. Lots of wide open shots on the front 9 with large elevation changes throughout the course. This is a course where you can let the disc fly. The back 9 offers more technicality and definitely tons of fun. Course is very well maintained as this is in a nicer area of town and the lake really adds some scenery. Definitely will play this again.
Cons: Not very many, but if you are looking for short technical shots this course does not offer many. The course will get very busy on nice days as it is park of a large park. Obviously you have to be aware of the hazards of the lake and the nearby busy street.
Other Thoughts: Definitely one of the best maintained courses I've played, plus the great offer of multiple tee pads and pin locations makes this course very fun to play. This course is for all experience.

Tees and Rolling Hills
Pros: -Nice rolling hills make up this courses character. There are a few fun hill shots.
-2 or 3 tees for every single hole. They make holes sometimes twice as long or offer a way different perspective. This will keep the course fresh for the locals. All tees are concrete.
-Detailed signage with maps and distances for all available tees.
-This is a huge park that circles around the lake and then some. It is scenic and seems to be a very active part of Norfolk.
-Nice baskets that are in good condition.
-This course is one of those that is fun for many skill levels. If it's too easy take the long tee.
-A decent amount of trees to provide shade and challenge.
-Shouldn't lose a disc here, the course doesn't get too close to water. No underbrush.
-I don't think disc golfing is too big in the area despite having a couple of high quality courses so you probably won't have to wait much while playing.
-Bathrooms, drinking fountain, lots of parking, playgrounds, paths, etc for amenities
Cons: -You might have to wait a little bit for someone to pass on the path or something like that but it's not long or a big deal.
-It is way too easy to overcome a horrible tee shot. There are a lot of ways to get to each basket and no shots are ever forced with few exceptions like 12 and 17 off certain tees.
Other Thoughts: This park is a good contrast to TaHaZouka park in the South part of town. That course is very hard and tight and this one is easier and more open. Both courses are enjoyable and make Norfolk a destination for disc golf in NE Nebraska. I would recommend playing both of these courses if you happen to be in the area.

Skyview DGC review
Pros: Fun city park with a disc course built in throwing throughout the park across walking trails following around the park lake. There are A, B, and even C tees for every hole. Very well maintained and clean park to play disc at. Some elevation change and widely spaced trees make this a great course for the average player. Every time I am in this part of Nebraska, I play this course.
Cons: For about half the holes in this course you are relatively close to the lake and if there is a large wind or you catch a roll, it is easy to lose a disc in the lake itself.

Pros: -Multiple tees offer many different ways to play this course.
-Located in a city park, plays partially around a lake, well maintained as far as trash and signage, fairly easy to navagate.
-Nice use of the avalible space to create variety, nice elevation changes, well thought out design. Some blind tee shots that are well conceived (over hills, one up and around a wall of imposing pines.) A couple decent bombers from the back tee postitons.
-A nice test of arm strength and endurance on a summer day.
-The park itself is an enjoyable walk, well kept with both mature and newly planted trees.
-Stand on hole 12s B tee and wonder at the sadism of a 400 footer down a 10ft wide fairway of thick trees.
Cons: -A bit too forgiving of poor shots on most holes (with a few notable exeptions.) Most of the time a very errant shot is still very workable for a par. May not be a con in every players opinion.
-It does play through a park that is heavily used at times by walkers, picnicers, etc. Has not usually been a huge issue in my experience but the potential is there.
Other Thoughts: A very nice course in my opinion (it's also my hometown, so I'm rooting for the home team a bit here.) The problems and shortcomings of the course are primarily unavoidable issues (foot traffic etc.,) the design itself is quite satisfying and the multiple tees really allow you to adjust the course according to skill level making it more than worthwhile for both pros and those just getting started. Also there are some newer trees that appear to have been planted in order to shape some fairways for a particualar shot. They're somewhat effective now, but in a few years look for them to really be a factor.
