Pros: A nice quick round if pressed for time as this is a 9 hole course. Cement tee pads with hole number and par listed. Park is well maintained. Some short holes to warm up with, ace and birdie opportunities. Holes 3,4,5 play with a creek and pond, but avoidable water hazards. Hole 9 plays with a pond on your left, but able to throw away from as well.
Cons: Sometimes crowded with first few holes in main picnic area. Some areas of goose poop on some water holes.
Other Thoughts: good for a fast round, would like to see more holes added. If you play par as listed on the pads, won't be too much trouble for you. I played as everything par 3, and hole number 7 is a challenge as it is over 600 ft in distance.

Pros: Very nice park. easy to navigate. a lot of short holes combined with a very long driving hole. can quickly play a round. concrete pads with par and distance written on pad. Water comes into play on a few holes to make some shots challenging.
Cons: Pedestrian traffic on the first few holes. one day i even saw someone set up his grill right on the tee pad of the first hole.can be really very busy on weekends in the summer.
Other Thoughts: Its a really nice park. easy to play a quick nine holes. Hole 7 has been shortened up to midway behind ballfield. It is definitely parable now. I work nearby and can stop by and play a quick round on my way home.

Pros: Some short holes to start to get your game rolling. Longer/tougher holes start at hole 4. Enough variety to keep you interested. I got my start at this course.
Cons: Water traps at 3,4,5, and 9, although 3 and 4 shouldn't be an issue unless your disc slips. In the summer there is alot of parties hosted at the park which may or may not interrupt your play at holes 1,2 and 3

Pros: Beautiful Park--Lamar park is really a beautiful park with baseball fields, tennis courts, splash pads and a LOT of ammenities.

Risk/Reward--Kind of nice to have a little risk/reward where the risk isn't too high.

Flow--flows well, no real chance at getting lost.

Tee Pads--Large clean pads, marked with hole number and par.
Cons: Flow--no tee signs, just pads with numbers on them.

9 Holes--There is so much room at this park for 18 holes. City of Wyoming just needs to nut up and do it.

Water--water is almost too easy to get over on the first couple water holes and a bear to avoid on the last, ask Sgamerp...

Hole 7--seems out of place, it's hugely long and open on a short course and there's no good way to get into the baseball field on the left if you lose a disc.

Busy park--lots of waiting for unwary people to move out of the way to throw.
Other Thoughts: There is so much room for improvement here. I was disappointed, the park is beautiful.

Pros: A lot of nice shots. It's not really geared toward one type of shot like some places can be. Water makes it very fun. tree placement on most holes makes it easy for a begginer to learn. A nice long one for people to rip and grip it. Not really busy.
Cons: Hole 7 has a Baseball Diamond and the road which get in the way(being the lucky guy i am i threw into the road and then from the road to the diamond.) Short and not really dificult for most besides that hole. Hole 2 if you over throw it you'll be in the drink.
Other Thoughts: Seeing as this is 10 minutes from my work it's definatly a good place to come. It's nice cause theres water and it's really quick. When i went out I played with two guys who know it well so I didn't really get lost(although it's pretty easy to find your way around) When i went I got a new disc cause some guy over threw hole 2 and landed in the back pound and didn't want to get it. So i said if he was gunna lose it i'd grab it and he said that was cool.

Pros: - Pretty simple straight shots, a large majority of the holes can be ACED
- Simple leveled elevation so no challenges there
- Some elevation on hole 7 with the hill off to the right
- Very nice park, great community and not usually crowded by golfers
- Good for beginners to learn on
- Challenging aspects, such as water hazards around holes 3, 6, and 9 and the very long drive for hole 7
- The course is set up around the parameter as to avoid most people except around holes 1 and 2.
- Watch for the road around holes 7-9
- Hole 7 is very difficult, watch out for the baseball diamond and the road. Very tight hole and your going to need your distance, since it is 600ft or so and the rest of the course is average 200-300ft.
- Hole one can be done in under par, very easily an ACE hole too.
- The whole course should be played with the par as 3, but is setup with certain holes having 4 as its par. If any hole should have that par, its 7. Otherwise, the large majority of players should get par or less.
Cons: - No real cons to the course game-play wise, only with course overall

- Some families walk right through the course while your playing, so you will have to pause for them to move.
^^ Watch out for little kids, for they will grab discs and then throw them back to you.
- Local wildlife can be a problem
- Smoking is allowed and people will drink
Other Thoughts: - All and all, a good course and just great for beginners. Beautiful park, not many distractions, the ability to make an ace on some hole is a plus.
- There is no hours for the park, so Neon and Glow golf is a plus here, and good lighting means you can kinda see your discs without much trouble. Bring a flashlight and remember to charge those glow discs

Pros: The coarse features an even terrain, no ups and downs. The tees are cement and seem to be well maintained. The distances are not far except for on hole #7 so for those just learning how to throw the disc, like me, that can't get the distance drives yet, this leaves you feeling good about a well played game.
Cons: Lots of people at times. Especially around the first 3 holes. The water hazard on hole 3 is a nasty channel connecting 2 of the ponds. If you lose a disc in there, its not really worth going after.

Pros: Good variety of distances. Ace runs on holes 1, 2, 5, 6, and 8. "Two drive approach" needed on hole 7. Only a few tree obstacles. Water obstacles are present, yet avoidable. Long sticks are usually available to retrieve wayward shots, and the baseball fences aren't too high to jump over.

Since the installation of the "kids water playground" on the north side of the park, a "goose cannon" has kept most of the geese away, which means WAY less goose droppings compared to years past.
Cons: People.

WARNING: DO NOT go to Lamar park on a Summer weekend. Chances are people will be using the baskets to anchor pinata strings, or move the picnic table directly into the fairway, or run to your disc after you tee off and try to throw it back. Best to go to Lamar during the work week.

Also, I find it easier to park by the tennis courts and get the walking out of the way early, as a "warm-up." That way after you are done you can leave right away.
Other Thoughts: Shooting par on #7 and #9 are the main challenges here, but can be done. Shooting under par on the entire 9 constitutes a good game.
