Pros: -Flows nicely around the perimeter of the park. (Some holes play around playground equipment, so be mindful).
The 9th hole will put you back, near the parking lot.
-Baskets are placed in excellent locations.
-Cement Tee boxes
-Enjoyable and fun to play.
-Good use of Terrain
-I like how the tree line, gives this course a nice backdrop.
-Innova Disc Catchers
-Restrooms in Park
-Pop Machine if I remember right
-Most of the Teeboxes are easy to spot from the previous basket. Except #2, which is across the road from the middle of the first fairway. Not a big deal, just worth the mention.
-Excellent pin placement for a course that is located in a small park.
Cons: -It is a park, so there will be kids around.
-Hole #2 plays alongside a shelter, BE CAREFUL!
-Ironically the first Tee is Hard to spot. I drove through twice and missed it. (As you pull into the Park, the parking lot is on the right, the first tee is on the left. It sits between the Park road and the residential road that runs parallel to the park.)
-There are signs at the teebox, but no course map.
-The course is small, and short. I finished the course in about 25 to 30 minutes.
Other Thoughts: I wish this course was in my neighborhood. It's a 9 hole course, that is well worth your time. It is a small course, yes, but this is the kind of course I could play 3 or 4 rounds and not get bored with it. It's small and it does play fast, I played it in about 40 minutes. But There something about this course, I made sure I went back and played it again, before I left town. I just had fun with it! If you are traveling across Southeastern Iowa, do yourself a favor, and stop and play here. It's fast so you'll be back on the road in no time. I wouldn't drive out of my way to play here, but whenever I come back to visit, I'll play here at least 1 or 2 times. This is my favorite 9 hole course. It's just a fun course.

Pros: The course is well maintained and in a nice city park. Fellow disc golfer traffic varies, sometimes you have the whole course to yourself for a very relaxing play through.

Can be a good beginner or a more advanced players course, not short, but not long holes. Hole number 3 always makes for a challenge, as well as 5 where you do not want to overshoot the basket, or clip a tree branch when shooting over the small ravine. The ravine is marked as a water hazard, but it's a dry ravine, don't let that make you feel any better about throwing one down there though as it is very steep.

The course is laid out nicely and doesn't really favor RHFH or RHBH. T
here is one dogleg right, but hole four is best thrown backhand (hill slopes to the right for a bad roll)

very fun, i go back again and again.
Cons: -only 9 holes
-watch where your disc goes, I've lost more discs than I'd like to admit just on hole 3.
-Also when throwing on hole three and four be sure to know who is on the course with you, four runs up the left side of the fairway of three. The teepads are visible to each other, just wait for the group on four to go and all is good and safe.
Other Thoughts: My home course, so I will try to be unbiased :)

It is a good birdie course, and I usually get flustered if I get a four on anything.
