Memorial Park is home to a reasonable DGC on the NW corner of Lowden, IA. A decent size park with multiple playground areas, a walking trail, shelters, an RC Car track, and a nice baseball field. The course winds through the western half of the park beginning just over the first pedestrian bridge. Play here was fine with trees to work around and you are over the small creek at least 3 times. There are enough bridges to not make you walk way out of your way, although you could jump the stream as well. Even with the multiple directions the course winds, the walking path is in play for all but the last hole. If there are many activities going on here on a weekend, you may be out of luck. Some of the playground equipment comes into play on #1. There is a shelter in the middle of the #3 fairway. #4 ends just past the bathroom building. #9 has the RC car track to the right and the ballfield to the left. Even on a quiet Friday afternoon, I had to hold up a few times to keep from doinking pedestrians. Still, I would play regularly, if this was the course nearby. Lowden is at least along US30 (The Lincoln Highway), so it's not a long jaunt off the beaten path. An OK course, might play again here if driving through the area.
