Default New Course in Van Meter, IA

So my hometown, Van Meter, IA (just west of Des Moines), is making a disc golf course right now. It will be nine hole course that is extremely short (can be played in about 20 minutes). I sent an email to the city telling them I would volunteer my time to help out with the remainder of the DG course. I went to the course today just to see how much they had left to do and ran into a guy who was helping with the course as well. All of the pins and signs are already in place. He said all that is left to do is lay the teepads, and mark the yardage on the signs. He had never played disc golf before, but heard that I was willing to help out. I informed him that I played disc golf pretty regularly (usually at least once a day). I was wondering if there are any ideas I can give the city for how to improve the course. The park it is in is pretty small, so adding more holes really isn't an option, but I was wondering if you guys had some ideas... If so please share. Thanks.

That tall grass there can really hide a disc!
I thought that course really took advantage of the space alloted.
Its short but it is fun. I like it how it is.
