Pros: This is a great course for the experienced player if you play both the front and back 9. It offers a lot of different experiences and a lot of good memories that will last for a long time both good and bad.

This course really goes out of it's way to make sure that the people playing the course have an enjoyable experience because of good signage, teepads, well kept baskets, and a good scenic view throughout the park.

The course gives you a chance to work on your risk vs. reward decision making skills in the game of disc golf and also will help to expose your strengths and weaknesses in a hurry.

The back 9 of this course has to be one of the most pleasurable places to play a round of disc golf in central Nebraska without the fear of loosing discs while still feeling challenged by the course layout.

The front 9 of this course offers you a chance to throw over or beside the lake on multiple occasions. I really enjoyed the "green" of hole 9 but wished that it was better kept like the rest of the park.
Cons: There is a very high chance of loosing a disc in the lake at this course. While we were there one of our group did loose a disc but we were able to recover it with a little help from a long stretch of rope/string which we stretched across the lake to pull the disc back to safety while the lake was frozen but not thick enough to walk on.

The course maintainers could fix one of the tee signs which was vandalized on hole 8 but it was fairly self explanatory since we could see the basket not far from the tee.
Other Thoughts: This is a must go to destination course for anyone in the state of Nebraska. I look forward to playing this course many more times and would recommend it to anyone of any skill level to give it a try sometime. I would caution you though that if you are working on control issues not to play the front 9 because there is a high likely hood you will loose some discs.

This course could add another 9 holes like Roper park in Lincoln and easily make it one of the premier courses in Nebraska and possibly draw people from out of state to come enjoy the course.

 Play it safe or lose it all?

Pros: Good tee pads. 18 Holes.
The park is well maintained.
Front 9 has enough elevation changes to work up a sweat.
Front 9 has some risk reward shots.
Back 9 holes have decent distance and 3-6 trees between you and the basket.
Cons: Front 9 has multiple opportunities to lose a disc in the drink. (I would've on hole 9 due to a crazy roller but the lake was frozen and we have means of recovering discs :)
Back 9 will not challenge the advanced player.
Back 9 has very little change in elevation.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course. There were 12-20 people playing Sunday afternoon but we didn't feel in-the-way or have to wait on another group.
