Pros: -Good beginner course in a good part of town in a clean park
-Very few holes that require RHBH or RHFH drives so any player can be successful
-Concrete tees that are enjoyable to throw off
-Signs are to the point and easy to understand
-Baskets are in good shape
-Enough variety to keep players of lower and intermediate levels entertained
-Course layout is very easy to understand
Cons: -The back 9 is pretty repetitive, it mainly consists of zigzagging back and forth across the park, no real elevation or trees to deal with
-OB is very punishing to players whose discs find their way in to the woods. Very thick undergrowth, as is par for the course (no pun intended) in this area of the country. Not necessarily a bad thing though
-Higher level players will most likely grow bored of the simple hole layout and repetitiveness
-The longest hole on the course, Hole 7, measures to be 376 and is listed as a par 5, as well as hole 16, which is 296 but is listed as a par 4. This is a very small nitpick but I figured I would include this anyways, though it doesn't make much of a difference
-Higher level players may grow tired of the courses simple layout and lack of obstacles
-Tee pads are the smallest of any tee pads I've ever played.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a very good course to get new players into the game of disc golf. Being my hometown course, I play here at least 3 times a week and still thoroughly enjoy it. If you are in the area and are interested in a nice round of disc golf with minimal stress this is a great course to check out

Pros: 18 holes set in a nice little park. They finally got concrete tees in, and while that should be a standard, it's still better than no tees at all. A few tricky shots in the woods, and baskets with OB close enough to make you think about it. Uses the allotted area about as best as possible though.
Cons: Teeboxes are small. Better than nothing but dirt to plant on and get a good rip, but it makes it a little precarious if you're not used to such short pads.

A couple of the holes around the ballfields are a little boring, just open hyzer shots. At least some change in elevation on a few of them offers a bit of challenge.

Off the fairway is a nightmare - none of the undergrowth is trimmed back, and if you get in it finding your disc can take a while. Kind of plays as an extra hazard, so not particularly a bad thing.
Other Thoughts: Decent little 18 that can punish your mistakes with OBs or heavy underbrush. Not a lot of selection in the area, but I'd rate it 3rd out of 3 when including Palmyra and Hannibal in the mix. Could use some work but it's not a poor course by any means.

Pros: Well kept grass and very clean. Good tees and good chains easy to navigate through the course.
Cons: Back 9 is open and a lot of straight shots no challenge at all really.
Other Thoughts: I love this course and just moved away so I is it a lot the closest one toe now is a 9 hole that is stupid easy to play.

Pros: My home course - play here 2-4 times a week so I know it very well
Concrete Tees installed on front 9, back 9 going in this year, hopefully before summer. New tees on a few holes. Good novice to intermediate course, can get pretty windy on the back 9 which ups the difficulty.
Cons: Not alot of variety, RHBH throwers are favored on 2/3 of the holes. RHFH shots are there but the RBHB shot is favored most often. Needs more vegatation to create more shot lines and obstacles on holes 12-17
Other Thoughts: Course is still in development, more additions to be added this year and next. Alternate pins, extra tees, and benchs are planned. Good community of players involved in the club and want the course to grow and get better each season.

Pros: My main course. Nice variety of open holes with some tighter wooded holes mixed in. Great general public park in addition to discing. Well marked. An easier course for powerful RHBH throwers considering much of the wooded areas are generally to the left of fairway. Some of the shortest holes are made the most creatively with their use of the woods/mandos.
Cons: The tees are downright awful. I only use about half of the designated tees due to wear.

Holes 3-7 are very similar to each other, then holes 13-17 are again very similar.
Other Thoughts: Solid course in the largest city in the area. Could be improved considering the player base. Still very fun regardless of faults.

Pros: It's located in Quincy. It has some challenging shots(5,7,8,9,10). Good variety with how the holes are setup.
Cons: No concrete pads. Archery fence along the first 3 holes. The back 9 isnt that special. No disc golf league
Other Thoughts: Quincy needs a disc golf league, it could be a traveling league that plays Quincy, Hannibal, Palmyra, Hamilton, etc....

Pros: This course uses the park to it best. There is a good mix of long and short holes, as well as a couple of holes that test your ability to shoot down a narrow alley and anhyser it to the hole.
Cons: The tee pads are grass and are extremely worn and uneven, almost to the point of being dangerous. Most of the holes are wide open with few trees to worry about.
Other Thoughts: This is a good course that allows for other people to come along and entertain themselves while you enjoy a round of discing. There are batting cages, putt-putt golf and a lovely pond with paddleboats.

I would give this a much higher score, but the tee pads are too worn to be of any use, and it's hard to find a good spot to tee from. With the number of people I see playing here, it would be a good thing for the city to either grade the tee pads to make them even, or to install concrete tee pads.

 Nice coarse

Pros: Well maintained coarse with several wide open holes to show off your driving skills. There are a couple nice dog legs. I beleive the baskets are one of the Mach style baskets.
Cons: The coarse has worn down natural tees and the signs for the holes can be hard to fallow especially on the back nine. Holes one and two are also next to the archery range. If your disk goes over the fence in this area its GONE!
Other Thoughts: This is over all nice coarse to play that is mostly flat. Only a couple holes take advantage of evevations. It is too far from my house for me to play regularly.
