Decent Town Course

Played: 17  Reviewed: 17  Exp: 4.9 Years
Pros: -Good beginner course
-Baskets are in good condition, caught well
-Tee pads are nice
-Tee signs were helpful
-The park was in good shape and it seems to be maintained regularly
-Chances for aces and birdies
-Not going to lose a disc here
-The course was not busy while I was there
-Other things to do in the park
-Though not much area given to make a course, the designers did a nice job with the space given
Cons: -The holes are all fairly short, can't really open up your arm except for maybe two holes
-Navigation is a bit tricky in some spots. Have to hike a bit between holes 5 and 6, and 8 and 9.
-Not much shot variation. Nothing too interesting here
-No signature shots here. Each hole was pretty "meh" to me
Other Thoughts: This would be a very solid course to introduce the game to someone, as the holes are generally pretty short with a few trees scattered throughout. With that said, there is nothing that stands out about this course and it is very comparable to any other small town course. It really isn't worth traveling that far to play. If you are in town or nearby, you may as well stop by to touch up your game a bit and maybe sink an ace or two.

Pros: +Nice baskets
+Concrete Tees
+Won't lose a disc here.
+A good amount of trees for a beginner course in a small town. There are enough to provide a challenge but not overwhelming.
+Other things to do at this park if you want to stop here with the family and play a quick round. Playgrounds, camping, tennis, picnic tables, views of the lake.
+Decent signage.
+Decent flow (7 and 8 are across the bridge past 9)
+Ace runs
+This course is probably never busy.
Cons: -This course is pretty short and won't provide much of a challenge to serious players.
-Not a lot of distance variation, it is short and shorter.
-Not much for elevation here. Maybe a few +/- 5 feet holes.
Other Thoughts: -This is one of those courses that is well designed as a short, beginner course in a park. It has an average fun factor. It is a serviceable park for this town but it simply can't get a high ranking.
-This course isn't worth traveling any real distance to play. The best course in the lakes area is Okoboji Gold. If you are in town, you might as well play. It will be a quick round.
