Pros: Good signage has been installed.
Score card/maps near Hole 1.
Actually very interesting shot selection.
Has a Portapoty.
If they took care of the cons, this could be a 3.5 easily.
Cons: When this was first installed over a year ago, the installation was kind of a slow progression. However, it seemed like the upkeep has stalled out. Hole 3's basket could be ripped out of the ground as it is very loose. The baskets themselves are not the greatest - an off brand made in southern Kansas. Due to poor installation, the height of the baskets, from top of the basket to the chain apparatus, varies from hole to hole.
The biggest disappointment is the tall grass fairways of Holes 1-3, 11, 13-16, Not only are the fairways too narrow, but they are getting even narrower. Particularly holes 14-16, they are not mowing them as wide as they were when the course was first installed, and even then they needed to be wider yet. Hole 12 originally had a tunnel shot through the woods to an open green. The tunnel has grown shut.
No running water.
Other Thoughts: I'm hoping the city steps up the upkeep of this course. If they don't, I probably won't be back.

Pros: These pictures and other reviews are quite deceiving -- there is signage, multiple tees, no missing baskets, etc. This course is for real.
Cons: Oblivious fishermen.
Someone stole the donkey statue on hole 17.
Other Thoughts: Worth it!

Pros: This course offers a variety of shots like uphill and downhill, short and long, and also has tall grass rough to keep you honest.
There are a few dog leg holes as well.
Slight elevation changes are present here and the shots over the lake give you just enough risk reward challenge. This course will test a variety of your skills.
Cons: No signage, benches, or trashcans. In the summer it will get hot out here because there isn't much shade. The wind will surely be a factor here because many of the holes are open.
There is a threat of losing a disc on a few holes, especially the water shots, and in the tall grass rough.
There aren't any other amenities here besides the lake, so prepare accordingly. This course can be a bit confusing for the first time player so printing a map would be helpful.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid play that is off the beaten path a bit. The addition of tee pads and especially signage would make this course a bit better. Signage would be extremely helpful to those visiting for the first time. The shots are here and the wind will add to the challenge of your round. If you are in the area its worth the stop.
***It appears according to 2 new reviews of this course that signage has been added. This is a good thing and if I could bump up my review .25 a disc I would. I don't think signage would make a .5 disc difference so I will be leaving my rating at 3.0****

Baldwin City Lake
Pros: Good mix of par 3 and 4s. Fun, short over water shots. Fairly easy to navigate if you have played there at lease once. hole 3 basket has been replaced and hold 18 is no longer bent.
Cons: very tight fairways, tee pads aren't marked clearly. a lot of overgrown grass. could use more mowing and clearing of a few tunnels shots. a few baskets chains are crossed and not lined up properly.
Other Thoughts: With the addition of signage it helps with on the spot par info and rough tee pad/pin location (tees still need improvement. this however seems pointless due to the poor up keep of the course. would love to see more tlc here.
