Pros: Location and the fact there is a second course on site is this courses best feature.

A never ending supply of pin positions.

Mediocre signage, nice tee pads, and benches on most holes.

acceptable variety in distance, but I did not find as strong of a variety in shots required and the long holes were wide open.

17 had a nice elevated tee.
Cons: No navigational aids I got lost at one point and wound up on the other course.

a truck was parked directly behind hole 9 making the hole impossible to finish safely.

10 and 11 were parallel with each other, 2 groups could easily be throwing on each others fairways, especially when 11's basket curls to the left behind hole 10's tee.

Hole 12's basket was just feet from the road.

Hole 16 played very close to property lines. 17 was also parallel with property lines.

you had to walk right over another tee pad to get to hole 18, which has a steep hill on right that goes directly to a very busy road. It is heavily protected by trees, but I still had one of my attempts hit a tree and roll all of the way down the road into the busy road.

There are a few opportunities for disc loss. I spent 25-30% of my time looking for discs in brush or high grass. I did not lose any though.

Back 9 does not offer much shade during hot weather. Holes are mostly wide open.

Lots of vandalism.
Other Thoughts: I was wishing I had played the other course on the property.

More pins, does not make a better course. The money put into these pins could have been put into far better use. There was no reason for 6 pin positions when many are just 10-15 feet apart.

If you play this course during the midwest championships and disagree, shoot me a PM and we can discuss it before the anonymous thumb. A thumbsdown means this was unhelpful, not that you are pissed I rated the course low.

Pros: Good variety of shots in and out of the woods. The wooded shots have fairly easy openings. Oklahoma Joes is right down the road, so that is always a plus.
Cons: Very worn, slightly trashy. Was a windy day, but alot of liter about. Wasn't always easy to find where the pin was, due to multiple locations per hole, and not very well marked.
Other Thoughts: All and all is a godo course and a good. Grab some Joes between the Down Under and the Top, and your good to go.

 Recreationally fun

Pros: Teesigns present, teepads are large, navigation relatively simple, benches a plus, colored poles help with hole distances. good mix of shots left to right, right to left.
Cons: A couple of holes have 8-10 different placements fine, but makes it awefully hard to figure out where to go, maybe spend extra money on some alt teepads. that makes every pin placement x2.
Other Thoughts: The course is well played and having a down under in the same park bonus. Also, DD has moved their store in just up the road so if you lose a disc stop by. Also right next to DD is the best BBQ in the nation so Easy to make a good day out of rosedale

Pros: The most centrally located and busiest course in KC. Offers several dogleg shots and tough approaches with baskets usually surrounded by trees. Plays left, so it forces RHBH players to adjust their game. Easy to meet other players.
Cons: Dirty and poorly maintained. Busy with regular, slow playing lines. Lots of riff raff getting high at every bench, especially down under. Built on top of a steep rocky bluff, so errant throws are extra punishing and difficult to find.
Other Thoughts: Although this park is busy, its only due to its location. Its one of the oldest DG parks in KC, but needs a serious overhaul to be family friendly. Worthwhile to play for shot variety and meeting new people.
