Pros: Course was easy to find in the middle of a cute small town. The course matched the map that was attached. First five holes were not long but challenging with the number of trees influencing shot selection. It was a fun start to the course.
Cons: Some signage was missing- #5, 6, and 8 tee markers all gone. Could not find tee spot for #8 at all.. marker and ground board totally gone... played from approximate spot on map.
From hole #6 on... absolutely no obstacles. Just an open field with 4 baskets. A disappointing finish to what started out fun.
Other Thoughts: Not sure what could be done to improve it immediately. Long term- trees could be planted on holes #6-9 to provide obstacles in the future. Field does not have any other purpose. Gave course 3 for beginning part and 1 for second half, thus the 2 rating.

Pros: Easy to find the course.
Brief description of the hole location at the tees.
Restrooms between hole 1 and 2.
Cons: Holes are played as par 4s averaging 250".
Long walk to the hole 2 tee.
Parking is in the center of the park, as well as the playground.
Tees are worn down, some tee markers are missing.
Other Thoughts: The 1st hole brings excitement to the course, but it quickly fades away walking to the 2nd tee. After hole 5, trees are no longer an issue. Hole 6 tee is between hole 5 basket and the railroad. the marker is missing, had a hard time finding it

Pros: This course does have a few trees on a few of the holes, but for the most part it is a wide-open course. There is some OB on a couple of holes and 2 slightly tough pin placements. The baskets and tee signs are decent and there are trashcans everywhere. I felt that the distance variety was good for this course. The 1st hole was actually my favorite on this course just because of the tree navigation.
Cons: The dirt tee pads are a bit worn. #6 tee sign is missing. Navigation is not bad except know that #2 is down along the road from #1 basket and #6 is where the trashcan is just inside the wooded alcove. No restrooms here and there can be people playing baseball that may make playing #7 and #8 a little touchy. Parking is street side only as the gravel road that goes through the park is only one car wide.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor here was just ok. I really did not mind this course, but it was nothing that made me want to play it again. It is great for this course to be here however, because this is it unless you travel over 20 miles to Fargo, ND. An Average course for a small town is the way I looked at it. It was fairly easy to find the park. At least they can sling plastic.

Pros: This course offers many unique holes. Most of the shots are short but a few are a bit longer. There are some tight fairways and some open fairways.
It would be pretty hard to lose a disc here, as it is pretty open.
There is a creek behind one of the holes, though it shouldn't come into play unless you overshoot by 35 feet.
Many different shot opportunities, if you one shot doesn't work, there's at least two others you can try the next time.
I would recommend this course if you are in the area.
Cons: There aren't many things I didn't like. I guess one thing was there was no real place to park that i could find.
A few times the tees were somewhat close to the previous baskets.
I guess the only other thing i can pick on is that there are no long shots with any obstacles.
