9 Hole Gem in Marble Rock
Pros: -Decent Baskets
-Cool rock and bench at every hole
-Nice mix of open / wooded shots
-Decent Tee Signs
-Quiet Park, good upkeep
-Plays mostly around other activities in park
Cons: -Gravel Tees
-No trash cans seen
-Little elevation (might be a pro for some)
Other Thoughts: Marble Rock DGC (or River Street Disc Golf on the map sign) is a 9 hole gem of a course in a city park in Marble Rock, IA. A good mixture of open / wooded and long / short made for an enjoyable round. Each tee has a large rock and a bench. Holes 1-3 are open with a few trees, 4-8 play in a wooded section of the park and 9 finishes back open. Baskets were good and the tee signage looked new. The gravel tees were a tad tough to get grip on, but a minor flaw. There were also few trash cans to be seen, but I did not see any trash on the course. While there are other activities in the park, the course plays mostly away from it. There was a very cool fire pit between the #5 and #6 fairways that could come into play. Add some concrete tee boxes and a few trashcans and you would have an even better rating. It was a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a course. Enjoyed my round and would play again if in the area.

Enjoyable small town course
Pros: You get to let your distance drivers loose, but have tight wooded shots too. Bright post by tee boxes. Easy to follow layout. Nice baskets!! Not busy at all.
Cons: I had no idea where the appropriate place to park was. Lots and lots of leaves!! Needs hole info on posts(distance, par)
Other Thoughts: I enjoy the course for the variety offered in a small area. I will definitely come back to throw here often.
