Home Course Love
Pros: This course is great for beginners to learn what they are doing. It has mainly open holes with the well placed tree occasionally making things a little more challenging. This course has a walking trail and a small playground so is well equipped for families.
Cons: Once you have advanced out of the beginner stages this course becomes slightly trivial.
Other Thoughts: There are many alternate versions of this course that keep it exciting for every skill level just make sure there are not a lot of other people or groups out playing as you will be crossing many fairways to play these alternates.
Nice place to begin

Pros: - Utilizes the trees and elevation changes to good effect.
- Concrete teepads
- Good hole signage.
- Park is overall nice too.
- Shade galore!
- Difficult to loose a disc.
Cons: - Walking paths that interrupt fairways.
Other Thoughts: A great little course to practice up and down shots and just to work more on the technical side of things. Watch out for kids though, the park had quite a few of them running about when I was playing. Pretty repetitive, but not really sure how they could make it not so.

Pros: • Best navigation of any course I've ever played! (see "Other Thoughts" below)
• Crushed rock at the base of all baskets to cut down on mud.
• Lots of elevation change.
• Most holes are short to medium in length, which is what I prefer because I am a finesse player.
• Beautiful park with nice grass.
• SW Missouri is beautiful country.
Cons: • Could use more long holes for some par 4's and 5's.
• A little hard to find the course. I had to ask a local for directions because the Google Maps directions were not accurate.
Other Thoughts: Very nice course. The rolling terrain of SW Missouri suits this course well. There are some challenging tree obstacles including the massive "Hand of God" tree on #12. Most holes are short to medium in length with only a couple of long open holes where you can cut loose a bomb. The long chuckers probably will get a little frustrated, but I loved it because I prefer shorter and more technical holes. Every basket had a small metal plate welded to it that pointed you to the next tee. This was awesome for a first timer like me. Every course should have these!
I'm from Idaho, so playing here was a rare privilege. I doubt I'll ever get to play it again, bummer! For any northwest residents reading this, it reminded me of Sunnyside Park in Pullman, WA. I also got to meet the course designer while playing. Overall, it was a great experience. Definitely make plans to play here if you're in the area!

My favorite birdie course
Pros: Beautifully maintained, quality teepads and baskets, nice use of elevation and obstacles. Nice shot selection. Wonderful challenge to get those 2's on windy days.
Cons: Not a particularly difficult course. Every 3 feels like a disappointment.
Tournaments would be hampered by interference between golfers on adjacent holes.
Other Thoughts: Great course for new players or casual players. I love to take my wife and preteen son to play the course.

Pros: Lots of roughage to keep you on your toes. 2-3 open tees to let some fly. Feels like a real golf course with huge hills and some minor valleys.
Cons: Im not a fan of the raised tees.
Other Thoughts: This is simply an amazing course that uses obstacles to the advantage. It is a beautiful park and well taken care of. Lots of fun, a must!

Good, but way overrated on this site...
Pros: This course is set in a very pretty park. The neighborhood is good, and I feel I would be willing to play by myself at anytime of the day. The use of elevation here is great. It is not as elevated as some make it out to be, but you do have to be wary of roll-aways near the baskets. This is a great park for people in the process of learning the game as only 2 holes didnt require a mid-range or an ultra-slow fairway driver. The holes are positioned well enough to make a lot of the trees interesting to play around. This course also flows very logically for the most part. Best of all I met a nice local who was willing to play the round with me and show me the course.
Cons: The first main con isn't of the course itself, its of the rating on here. How can a course that averages 240 feet have 2 ratings of a 4.5 and one of a 5.0 (not to mention the multips 4.0 ratings). Those are meant for the best courses in the world. It made me want to make my rating lower to average this out. There is no way this course is over a 3.2. Anyways, that being said, a main con is the lack of distance. I only needed a disc faster than a speed 6 on two holes. Those two holes seemed forced and unlike the rest of the course. There were a couple spots where I would not have known exactly where to go after completing a hole.
Other Thoughts: Once again the people who rated this a 4.5/5 and a perfect 5/5 (and even a 4) are honestly out of their minds. Normally I don't get negative like this in my reviews, but its unfortunate they did that because now this course will never have the proper rating. This was a very interesting and fun layout, but the lack of distance and overall variety makes this a 3.2 for me, which rounds to a 3 (especially because two certain individuals over-rating it). Fun course!

Pros: Great course, with hills,a good layout,plenty of space, and some tricky holes.
Cons: Not enough woods for my taste, but there is some.
Other Thoughts: A very fun course to play. One of the best in the area for sure. If you're close by it is worth the time to check out.

Best in Spf area
Pros: Concrete tees, Well marked, little traffic, quiet.All around the best course I have played. No uphill shot, Which is a pro for me, could be a con for others who like those shots.
Cons: the big hill can destroy you round if it rolls down.
Sometimes pedestrians on the walk way don't understand that you are trying to play a sport and are sometime inconsiderate.
Other Thoughts: Look for the road with the water tower on it. The road to the course kind of looks like a drive way and I have to do a U-turn every time I go to it. Ha..
