Pros: Open and wooded holes
Beautiful park
Very clean
the layout (drainage, roughs, trees; removed OR planted) and maintenance of this huge park are way above average
Concrete pads
Lots of trash cans
good baskets
Cons: 45 minute drive from st. Louis
parts can be slippery or muddy, so stay in fairways and you'll be fine ;>
Other Thoughts: This is a great place.
strategize your holes

Pros: very nice park has a lot of other things to do after you lose all of your disc in the hip high grass. there could be so much more to this course if the mow the grass at different levels and put some kind of shape to the fairways
Cons: everyhole seems to repeat itself. change the elevation of the grass and give it some kind of shape!

Pros: Every hole has 2 tees and 3 pin placements. The signs are first-rate, showing pin placement, tree location, distances from each tee to each pin, which pin placement the pin is in that day, AND direction to next hole. It's so nice--it really adds to the experience.

Another thing I like is that the course makes good use of its elevation. Also, there are regular benches and/or picnic tables, which are smartly placed in the shade. I like hole #8, with the pin on top of the stump.

Many of the alternate tees are quite cleverly placed so that they add not only length to the tee shot, but require navigation around trees close to the tee. Very fun.
Cons: The grass in rough is super high and it looks like it is very easy to lose a disc. Use a spotter.

Some of the holes hide the pins in the trees, but I'd like to see more holes use those trees.
Other Thoughts: Thank you so much to the volunteers (designers, boy scout and/or eagle scout troop) who put considerable time into this course. It looks incredible. Wow.

I wavered on whether or not to give it a 4 or a 4.5, but because of the incredible signage and the options given by the multiple tees AND pins (plus the tight windows that come with the back tees), I'm giving it a 4.5.

Pros: Wide open, beautiful prairie land with lots of challenging out of bounds. The parks department has done a great job installing and maintaining the course, including placing large boulders around tee pads, bridges, adding water holes and drainage, walking paths and continuing to plant more trees for shade/obstacles. There are both Pro & Am tee pads with 3 pin locations for each hole along with attractive, informative tee signs that include "Next Hole" information. The reclaimed cedar tee posts are an aesthetic plus.
Cons: There are quite a few nickel plates that are not visible from the fairway because the baskets were installed backwards. Also, once you finish the hole there are a few places where it is difficult to know which direction to go next. That said, a new player could find their way through this course relatively easily without assistance.
Other Thoughts: Though this course was just installed in 2013 it has the fit and finish of a course that has been in the ground for 5-10 years. Bathrooms, signage, kiosk, parking lot and practice basket are nice.

Keep it in the fairway

Pros: This course is beautiful. There are some great rolling hills, tall grass, and a good mix of long/short and woods/open holes. The park itself is huge and we never once ran into other park goers on the course.

The baskets are bright orange DGA Mach III's and they catch really well. The color really stands out and is easy to spot.

Every hole has 2 concrete teepads with its own teesign. A lot of these also have trash cans and benches.

There are 3 pin locations on each of the holes. They range from very easy to very challenging.

The course is also easy to navigate. There were only 2 instances where we got mixed up on where to go but we found our way.
Cons: The only water spicket I saw was near the practice basket.

Course does not make a perfect loop. Hole 11 tee is near the car if someone needs to run back, but they would run right by 1's basket.

Parking will probably be an issue when there is a tournament going on.

It is a very long drive through the park to reach the disc golf course.

A lot of the number plates were facing the wrong direction.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course and will definitely get better once more people get out there and knock down some of the weeds and tall grass.

Pros: Great layout nice and wide open but very challenging with the long grass out of bounds areas that define the fairways. Also the Tsigns are top notch and very easy to know what the distance and pin placement are with both Tpads.
Cons: None at this time!
Other Thoughts: Birdman101s review was spot on! The long grass out of bounds can make for a long day of looking for your disk if you make a miss shot!

The one thing I will say and this is no fault of the Park or the design of the course is the BUGS! I doused my self with bug spray and was still bombarded in my ears and mouth the whole round. It was so bad at one point I almost quit playing because it was getting very hard to focus! When I play this again I am putting in ear plugs!

Pros: This course didn't go in until everything was ready for it.
It went in with 2 sets of concrete teepads, and 3 pin placements on each hole, and benches and trashcans ready to be put in. As well as some top notch tee signs at both tees on every hole.

The tee signs have a diagram of the hole that seems pretty accurate, and there is the usual bolt system to denote which location the basket is in.

Seems to be in an area of the park that is only really used for disc golf.

The multiple tees and pads will make it fun for both the newbie as well as the experienced pro, and allow for a change of pace if you play the course all the time.

The DGA baskets are bright orange and almost impossible to not see.

There is a kiosk and practice basket by the parking lot. The kiosk has scorecards (currently just quail ridge cards hopefully that changes), and a giant map of the course.

When playing the course as intended with the tall grass as OB it can be somewhat difficult. There are some elevation changes, but nothing to extreme.

The wooded holes add some change to the wide openness of the majority of holes.

Course flows pretty well, but next tee arrows near the baskets would be a nice improvement
Cons: The area around the practice basket is kind of tight, and could be over crowded really easily.

If the entire course is set up short it seems like it is just a bunch of straight/ hyzer shots unless you really want to throw some other shot. Hopefully some variety is added by moving some of the pin locations in the near future.

Other Thoughts: The prairie grass is pretty thick and can make finding a disc difficult. Spent a decent amount of time searching for a few miss throws.

There seemed to be tons of poison ivy and ticks when you got off the beaten path.

It is a long drive to the back of the park to get to the disc golf course.

Everything was set up in the A and B position due to the inaugural tournament and an attempt by the parks dept. to get new people into the game.

I will update this once i play the course a few more times and add some thoughts on the longer placements.

St. Charles' Newest Course, The Creek

Pros: Indian Camp Creek enjoyed its inaugural event this Father's Day weekend. A sprawling 18 hole course that has a definite "ball-golf" feel to its layout, this is an intermediate to advanced level course that requires both distance (potentially substantial distance, depending upon pin placement) and accuracy to remain sane. The majority of holes are what you might call field holes, but not quite, as they run up and down rolling elevation changes and are hemmed in by 3 feet tall prairie grass OB pretty much everywhere. Errant throws are swallowed by the tall grass, much to the consternation of the thrower. Keep your eye on it!
There are a few partially wooded holes, notably hole 7 with its elevated pin mounted in a tall tree stump.
Every hole has a concrete red and a blue tee, surrounded by mulch and landscaped beautifully. There are benches and trash cans everywhere.
The tee signs are well-done, plainly delineating the OB, the 3 possible pin placements with distances and a bolt showing which placement is current.
The park itself, a multi use family park that had a good number of users throughout yesterday, has several restrooms throughout, which is awesome. Even better, the disc golf area seems to be mostly removed from the rest, making it DG specific.
Cons: None really to speak of.
Other Thoughts: ICC is the newest addition to the St. Charles County family of courses, and a great one. As this course matures, it will only get better. Great job and thanks to the St. Charles club for all of the work it took to make this a reality!
We have The Wood (Lindenwood), The Ridge (Quail Ridge), The Ranch (El Shaddai) and now the Crik (ICC). That's worth a road trip!

Pros: Course is located in a beautiful sprawling county park of 603 acres. Course area is predominantly for disc golf only however course does come close to trails for walkers, bikers and horseback riders. 2 sets of concrete teepads of regulation size. 3 pin placements for every hole. Awesome orange coated DGA baskets for easy viewing with all backgrounds of woods and fields. Some nice landscaping around teepads. Moderate elevation changes throughout. Mix of open and wooded holes. Well defined fairways. Tee signs are among the best I have ever seen with diagrams and bolts indicating current pin placements. Nice benches at most holes provided by local Eagle Scouts. 4 picnic tables located at some teepads.
Cons: Not many cons except this course may be too challenging for beginners when pin placements are set in longer positions. Wind may be another factor when trying to land in the fairway on some holes as the rough is 3 feet high in places. Long slow drive of 2 miles going at speed of 15 mph from entrance of park to the actual disc golf course.
Other Thoughts: This is a brand new course that is designed to resemble the look of a ball golf course. The inaugaural event was held this past weekend with most pin placements set at shorts and midrange placements. 18 hole scores ranged anywhere between 48 and 83 with OB attributing to the higher scores. Thanks to the ST Charles County Parks and the St Charles County Disc Golf Club for providing this excellent course.
