New Course for City Park
Pros: Those that put the effort into creating this course in the middle of town deserve a 5/5 rating considering the size and resources of Fayette, MO, as well as the obscurity of disc golf in this town. The park is beautiful and well maintained, which is why these baskets were relocated to this new course having previously existed at DC Rodgers Lake (*which might be getting a PDGA championship 18 hole course in the next few years)
There is good elevation change. A great use of land.
Easy to find (directly behind the high school)
Cons: The baskets are homemade with insufficient chains and basket depth. They are comparable to the DGA Mach 1 (original entrapment).
Hole signs do not display an image of the hole or the course O.B. rules.
The tee boxes are natural (not always a con), but the teeing area is not marked. Some stones or flags marking the 'line of scrimmage' would be preferable (see pictures of Logan College in St. Louis).
The par is listed as 33, but this doesn't match the PDGA par guidlines for a particular skill set. I graded it out as a 32 for Rec level, 35 for Beginner, 29 for Intermediate Am, 27 for Advanced Am, and Pro would be questionably a par 25-26 with a likely scratch scoring average (SSA) of 20-22.
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect intro course for a city looking to encourage more healthy activity in the heart of their community.
