Pros: Aesthetically beautiful. Elevation changes. Fun shots on every hole. Very challenging. Several par 4's to go with some really challenging par 3's.

Front nine you are looking at some tighter wooded shots (espeically hole 2). The holes are shorter, mostly under 350', with the exception of a couple par 4's. Not too much OB to worry about.

Back nine you get more into the open. Hole 10 you are bombing straight downhill on a 700+' hole. There are several par 4's on the backside, but its not just grip and rip. Some OB with the road at the bottom of the park comes into play and you need to place your shots. 17 and 18 are super long holes coming back to the parking lot. 18 perhaps a Par 5. You need to be able to throw for distance to score well out here. For the very top pros, scores of under 50 are hot. Anything under 54 is very very good. For an advanced amateur, shooting under 60 is great golf.

Awesome pine trees make for a fair course with fantasically designed fairways. Huge air shots, huge rollers, forehands, anhyzers, this course has it all! Extremely well manicured park make playing here an enjoyable disc golf experience. Baskets catch awesome and tees are great.
Cons: None. This is one of my favs.
Other Thoughts: If you have time to play 1 course in Des Moines, hit Ewing Park!

Pros: This course is a must play course for all players. The course is laid out over a beautiful hillside with holes going up and down the entire hill, through the wooded tree areas and out in the open as well. Front nine is decently long and plays through the tress for the most part. The second nine you better bring your long drivers because the length is astronomically long and fun. Overall the best if not the second best course I have ever played.
Cons: The only cons that I can think off is the fact that you will have to do lots of walking because of the length of the course, but it is entirely worth it.
