Pros: -Baskets OK
-Signage OK / DGA Peen N Stick (TM) (but issues, see cons)
-OK Starter Course
-A couple of blind tee shots, a few trees to work around
Cons: -Signage has no par or distance, #5 missing, #6 directs to #7 pin
-Sand volleyball court in play on #2
-Playground in play long on #4
-Walking path in play on #5 and long on #9
-#8 basket right next to a backyard of bordering house
Other Thoughts: Centennial Park houses a reasonable DGC in the north part of Huxley, IA. Originally on the very north edge of town, the neighborhood to the north has filled in. The course plays in the eastern part of the park around several other activities. For the most part, play stays away from these. There is a sand volleyball court along the right side of #2. There is a playground behind and right of #4, but would be a pretty errant throw to come into play. You do tee over the walking path for #5 which could come into play again on an errant long throw on #9. The other knock is on signage. The DGA "Peel n stick" (TM) are usually adequate, but here are missing par and distance. #5 is missing a sign altogether. #6 direct you to the #7 basket (#6 is pretty straight forward and slightly left). For what it is, a starter course in a city park, it is OK. There is some variation on distance. A blind tee shot for #3 with a sharp left right off the tee adds some interest. Lines on #7 make you think about the trees to work around. #8 is tucked in to the right behind a tree, so another blind tee shot. Add some concrete pads, upgrade the signage and this would be OK. No championship course, but it's not trying to be. A course I would play if it was close by, but there are a lot of other courses not too far away. I might play here again.

Pros: Beginner friendly course. Baskets are in good shape.
Cons: Too many obstacles (playground, shelter, etc.) in the way, especially if the park is busy.
Other Thoughts: Play is not recommended when there has been ample precipitation because it does leave standing water around a few of the holes. It seems as if the course was redone and that appears why #6 points to #7.

Not worth the time...
Pros: Besides being a beginner friendly course, not much. The signs were good...with the exception of hole 6.
Cons: The holes are just dropped in around the park equipment that is already there, making it impossible to safely play holes that are near something that is already in use.
The course seems to retain a lot of water. It hasn't rained yet this spring, yet pretty much all of the snow has been melted for 2 weeks, yet hole 2's pin, three's tee, and four's tee were pretty swampy.
Hole 6's sign points you to hole 7's pin.
This is definitely just a pitch and putt course.
Other Thoughts: I believe the park was redone by the time I played it. I'm not sure what other effects it had on the course, but that is the cause for hole 6's confusion I believe.
Of the nine, at least half run the risk of being unplayable. If you aren't a local to Huxley, this is definitely not a place to travel to. The only reason we played it was because we were on our way from Ankeny's course back to Ames, and I would still consider it a wasted 20 minutes.

Needs a redesign
Pros: Baskets are in good repair
Cons: This course is just a hodge-podge of throws where it seemed like a hole could go in amongst the ball diamonds, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields, etc... If any one of those facilities is being used, that's at least one hole that can't be played at that time.
Other Thoughts: The park is going to be expanded and disc golf is supposedly part of the master plan. Hopefully, there will be a reasonable amount of room for 9 holes.
