Pros: Woodland Park is like three courses in one. Each hole has one great pin placement and three very different tee pads. The moderate elevation in this park is well utilized for both drives and putts. Large trees guard the fairway and basket on all but one hole. Water comes into play on 9 holes, if you count the small creek and drainage ditch. From the blue tees you drive over water twice. I will let you decide which hole is the signature hole, there are at least 5 candidates.

This course is in a well kept park. The red and white tees have crushed gravel tee pads and the blue tees are concrete. The tee signs are good, but at the wrong tees (red). There are signs to direct you to the next hole. Bathrooms at hole 1 and 7. Lots of drinking fountains (idk if they all work).
Cons: There are long walks between some holes, but you can just follow the signs. The tees hold water after it rains. There are very few trash cans, so leave with what you came with.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for all players. Fun and challenge with lots of shot variation. Spotters (or swimmers) are recommended on some holes.

This is a family park, there may a play at the pavilion, or a concert on the stage, so watch out for other park goers.

Pros: This course has a wide varitey and offers a challenge to all skill level players with 3 sets of tees. This would be a great home course to have with the many options to play.

The terrain is very good with nice rolling hills and water coming into play on several holes. There are some very fast greens on the side of hills. This is a moderately wooded course. Check the video links below to get a feel.

The Blue tees have nice big cement tee pads.

Has tee signs.

Since I last played many signs have been installed to help aid navigation of this course.

Gateway Titan Baskets.
Cons: I would rate this course at a 4.5 but the navigation and flow is very difficult. I felt the course designer did a good job utilizing the land and making the holes the best they could but sacrificed flow for them.

The red and white tees are framed and filled with limestone. I heard these will be cement in the future.

This will help. Found a map.

Other Thoughts: Find a course map or a local to help you get around the course. Once you have played it once you will love it. It is a really fun course.

Here. I found a Map.

Bring a few water discs as you play near and across the water on several holes.

If you are in the area you should play Rock Springs Park, Alton IL
Endicott,(St. John) St Louis, MO
Sioux Passage, (Florissant) St. Lous MO
All 3 are great courses too.

 Tribute to the Lake Goddess

Pros: This course is situated on rolling slopes, which give the impression as you play of crossing over onto islands. The lake and it's arms come into play on many of the holes.
With three different tees for all but a couple of holes, this course can be played in a variety of styles.
Cons: Sacrificing discs to the lake goddess. And some of the tees are hard to find from the previous hole.
Other Thoughts: Hole 1 is by the pavilion to the left of the restrooms. It plays L-R across a sloping gully that sends errant rollers towards the lake. From the pin, cross the bridge and go up the steps to the next pavilion for next Tee. (You will pass the tees for hole 10)
Hole 2: Red and white tee are beside the pavilion. Blue tee is down into the trees to the right. From the blue, throw up an incline into a small clearing. Pin is nestled behind two mature evergreens. From pin, cross parking lot to next tee.
Hole 3: Throwing from an elevated position into a broad fairway dotted with mature trees. Pin is at top of a rise that slopes down behind into the lake. From pin, go left across a small bridge and up slope to next tee.
Hole four: From the tee, the pin directly straight ahead. The ground slopes down to the right towards a creek and the previous fairway. The road and the electrical facility are OB and in the way, as are a couple mature trees. From Pin, look left for next tee.
Hole 5: Several mid size and mature trees dot the top fairway. Past them, the ground slopes down and levels out. The pin is almost behind a mature tree at the bottom. From pin, go to side road and walk around the left side of the baseball field for next tee.
Hole 6: open field throw (almost). Pin is almost straight in front of tee, but trees line the back of a fenced off baseball field to the right, right along the optimal throwing line. The pin is near an OB road at far side of field. From pin, go left across a small parking lot. Next tee is to right of bathrooms.
Hole 7: Ace Run. Trees to the right, one or two that can be avoided in middle of fairway. Pin sits in a cove of trees. The downside is if you run at it and come up short, your fade will probably plant you in the rough. From pin, walk back up to the bathrooms for next tee.
Hole 8: Mature trees run the length of the fairway. Pin sits at bottom of a small slope that leads to more water. From pin, go left and cross road. The next tee you see is 18's teepad. leading from this tee to the left is a trail that takes you to 9.
Hole 9: Brush all along the right of the fairway (with lake directly behind the brush), the ground rises on the left. Few mature trees on this side. Pin is on far side of this rise, where the ground slopes back down towards the lake which sits behind the pin. From pin, go left, cross the small bridge and pass the basket for 3 to get to the tee for 10.
Hole 10: The blue tee has you throw across the lake. The red and white are on the other side. From the blue, throw across the water L-R. The pin is right there, begging for an ace run. From pin, go right to find next tee.
Hole 11: Blue tee is nestled in a cove of foliage behind a small waterfall from a storm drain. Ground rises to the left toward the main road (OB). A couple mature trees block the fairway. Closer to the pin, which sit at the top of a rise on the far side of the fairway, trees surround it on the right. From pin, cross the parking lot and go down the service road to find next tee.
Hole 12: From tee, pin is mostly straight ahead, near the road and at the top of the rise that runs along the left of the field. Many mature trees are along this rise. From the pin, cross the field. The next tee is straight across from the pin.
Hole 13: A number of trees early in the fairway, then open. The pin is at the far side of the field near the OB service road. From pin, go up service road to next pavilion and tee.
Hole 14: The Vando Mando. Blue tee has you throwing through an opening in scrub trees, across a chasm filled with more scrub trees and up a slope topped with mature trees. From the top of slope, the ground descends into more scrub trees. The pin is to the left of the tee at the bottom of this slope. From pin, go right towards lake for next tee.
Hole 15: Lake runs the length of fairway on left. Several mature trees and a utility pole to the right. There is a channel to throw through, but it's close to the lake. Pin is slightly right of tee. Ground slopes a little to the left at the pin. You can see the next tee from the pin.
Hole 16: To the left is lake, to the right is an upslope and more scrub trees. Make it past the trees and the pin is in a cove on the left of a small stand of young trees. From pin, look left for a set of stone stairs that take you up to service road. The next tee is on the parking lot.
Hole 17: Throwing from below fairway level. The fairway is the top of a hill. Trees to the left hide a sharp drop to the service road. To the right a slope that rolls down to the lake. The pin is at the far end of the plateau with a good drop behind that leads to the service road and the lake. From pin, go right, cross lake using the road to find the blue tee for 18 that you saw earlier. Red and white are on this side of lake.
Hole 18: Throw across lake. Ideally, you want to be up on the second slope across the lake for a good line to the pin. The pin is left of the tee. Behind the pin, the ground slopes downward, toward the lake.
I hope this helps a little.

 Something for Everyone

Pros: This course has made great use of the land available, and includes excellent elevation changes and several holes with some very tempting water hazards. Three tees on every hole also allow the course to be meet the needs of any level of disc golfer from newbie to pro. The combination of natural terrain and man-made obstacles (pavilions, baseball fields, etc.) really require you to bust out almost every shot in the bag. All in all, very challenging and a great course overall.
Cons: A little confusing to navigate for first time visitors, even with signs marking the way.
