Pros: -Nice park
-Decent signage although one appears to be wrong. I think it was number 5. Otherwise it shows pin location, park, and distance. It isn't all that necessary as the course is very easy to follow.
-Decent layout, easy to follow
-Bathrooms and shelter at the park
-Small town so not busy
-All the holes have giant red numbers indicating hole number
-A few ace runs
-A good practice course
-Scorecard and map at the start of the course
Cons: -The hole course is in an open field. The only trees look like they were planted when the course went in. I hit one with my monarch and it chopped the top 6 inches off the tree and didn't slow the disc much.
-There is no shot shaping at all. Maybe once the trees grow there will be
-Some holes are quite short and all are boring.
-This is a multi use park so you may have to watch out for others, it is fairly secluded though.
-Could be quite windy on the Iowa prairie
Other Thoughts: Like Martin, I have no real complaints about this course other than that it is in a wide open field and there are no hazzards whatsoever on the course. It is just a bunch of holes varying in distance that are all reachable in one shot. I wouldn't go out of your way to play here. It is very average and boring.

 Very nice looking course, give it 15 years.

Pros: Baskets. The baskets (homemade I believe, or some off brand) are very well constructed with large numbers on top of the basket, and play reasonably well with double layer of chains - my only complaint here is that the chains seem to be too heavy, and a gentle putt will fall off of the chains and out of the basket.

Signage. Each hole is marked with a very nice looking sign with a rough map, hole number, distance and par (Hole 6 was an inaccurate distance).

Well manicured. The park seems to be well maintained with several brand new trees, clean cut grass, clean grounds - you won't lose a disc here.

Beginner friendly. Ace runs abound, a good place to get out and practice open drives, approaches and putts.

Variety in distance. Holes vary from 150 to near 400 feet.

Nice looking. I've already mentioned each piece on its own, but in all the course looks very nice though young.

Not busy. No crowds here, no other patrons wandering about, as a local this would be an ok place to practice.
Cons: Very young. All of the trees are very small and offer no challenge, give them another 15 years and this may be a respectably challenging course.

Flat and Open. As a result of the young trees, there is no variety in types of shots required, every shot is straight and open, no line shaping required here. The course is very flat, no elevation whatsoever. A lack of variety makes for a rather boring experience no matter how nice everything looks.

Heavy chains. I mentioned it before, soft putts might not stick (I had 2 fall out, dead center - just fell off the front of the basket, when I know they would have stuck on any other basket).
Other Thoughts: An Ok DG experience, a decent place to practice, but the course itself is very boring - only worth a stop to admire how nice everything looks - otherwise I would not go out of my way for this one.
