Pros: Course is well marked with good Tee Pads. It stays well groomed with thick rough if you stray off of the fairway. Good Elevation for a SD course.
Cons: Almost every hole is short! The baskets are single chain and during the Spring/Early Summer, part of the course becomes unplayable, due to flooding.
Other Thoughts: Good Atmosphere..This is the 1st course I've ever played that actually butted, directly, up to a Golf Course. I liked the diversity. This course is very short but technical and has a beautiful setting. There are no true "Water" hazards but if you stray from the Fairway you'll have to deal with thick rough. Plenty of Obstacles, including Mature trees, Bushes and a Roadway.

Great design to the course considering the Park size!

If you are traveling I-90 this is a great stop. It's only a mile off the Interstate and is a great refresher course. This is no beginner course yet can accomodate someone who is learning to play. A Pro can have a Hay-Day here and should easily shoot well under Par.

A definite stop if in the area! Enjoy Hole 5!

Pros: -Lots of ace chances.
-Good signs and easy to follow.
-Clean park and disc golf doesn't get in the way of the rest of the park activities.
-Fast greens and elevation make for a challenge.
-Cement tee boxes
-Not too busy.
-Other activities to do in park.
-Bathrooms around hole 4.
-Good quick round, isn't going to suck up a whole afternoon.
-Adequate parking and located in a good neighborhood.
Cons: -Short holes
-Tees are kind of small
-Baskets are of a cheaper variety of innova disc catcher.
Other Thoughts: Hole 1: short, straight shot. trees on the left so if you are RHFH or LHBH it works well for you.
Hole 2: Straight and slightly uphill. as long as you keep it low you shouldn't have a problem. Basket on a hill.
Hole 3: Trees directly in front so you need to throw it right or left.
Hole 4: Short and straight but very fast downhill green!
Hole 5: Short and large elevation drop.
Hole 6: Back up the same hill and a little longer.
Hole 7: Flat and somewhat long-308 ft. Fast green!
Hole 8: Mid range and steep downhill. Fast green.
Hole 9: Short and slightly downhill. Right to left downhill fast green as well.

Overall this course is moderately challenging. Without the fast greens, elevation and persistent SD wind it would be easy.

Pros: - Recently updated to paved tees!
- Good signage, easy to navigate.
- Well kept and plays quick enough for a couple rounds.
- Park, soccer fields, picnic shelter and bathrooms nearby.
Cons: - Even the new paved tees are kind of small.
- Not a lot for hazards. Only a barbed in fence area half way down the hill on #8.
Other Thoughts: Worth a few rounds if you're in the area. Great nine hole!

Pros: A short but decent 9 hole in a nicely groomed neighborhood park. Offers enough elevation changes to keep things interesting. Plenty of chances for aces on this course as well. There is pretty much no chance of losing a disc here unless you, by slim chance, crack it on a tree. This course is a great warm-up course before heading over to the more challenging 18 hole at Big Sioux DGC. A round should take about 30 - 45 minutes. Maps on all tee signs make this course a breeze to navigate. Children's playground, restrooms, basketball court, and soccer fields are accessible in the park also.
Cons: All holes except for hole 7 are under 300 feet. Only real risks of losing a disc are on holes 8 and 9 as there is a fenced area with barbed wire along top which a disc could easily fly over if misthrown. Cement tees are a little short and no multiple pin placements. A little tricky to find my first time out since this park is tucked back in a residential neighborhood, but once you find it then it's easy every time after that.
Other Thoughts: There is a dirt parking lot that is between the tee for hole 1 and the basket for hole 9.
