 Riding the Ridiculous Rough

Pros: This is a very small and short little 9-hole course. It has one neat little hole that you shoot through an opening about 200 feet away (window like) inside a tree line right over a small pond. The pond part of this hole may actually just be a creek that has been recently flooded. At any rate, it was a unique shot and does have a bridge to cross over to get to the other side. There are tee signs, cement pads, a port-a-potty, a nice map and sign, and what looked like a club house (but was closed while I was there so early in the morning). It was cool to see the river along side the course. Talking to the people mowing the course, they take great pride in how much work they do to maintain it.
Cons: This is one of those Iowa courses with 3 to 5 feet high roughs and narrow fairways. I am not a fan of a course where the design slows down play and does not improve the course's design. Many of the holes are crammed in along side each other. As mentioned in an earlier review, the tee signs are displayed as North instead of pin at the top. This was confusing until you figure this out.
Other Thoughts: Fun factor at this place was almost non-existent. Seeing the river flowing next to the course was cool and the one hole was unique, but sadly, that was about it for me.

Pros: About the only pros is that it's pretty well kept and the markings are good. There is one hole that I found to be unique or fun.
Cons: I think 7 out of the 9 holes take place in the same open field, with fairways running right next to each other. There probably only should have been 1 possibly 2 holes in that field.

Most people that go there complain about the baskets, they are abnormally tall and if you are used to the normal baskets can make you bonk them off much more.
Other Thoughts: I almost played this twice, I was coming back from a tournament and he asked if we should hit this course on the way back. We stopped in the parking lot and after playing dankwardt and rodeo, we said screw it and just went home. It was hot out, and even the awesomeness of disc golf wasn't going to have us endure the heat for that course.
