Pros: His is my first play through of this course and it wasn't too bad. All of the tee pads were concrete and there was hole signage at each tee pad to show the hole shape and each basket placement. Most holes had at least 3-4 basket placements which is great but sometime hard to see where the basket is. This may be because I'm playing in December and everything is dead.

I like that on most of the holes even if your tee shot is a little far left or right, typically your second shot will still be an ok setup shot to get you close for a par. Something I haven't seen at any other disc golf course is large colored flags on top of the basket with the hole number to help find the baskets. Another good thing is that you can almost see all of the baskets from the tee pads which makes it clear where you're supposed to shoot.

Lots of mature trees that make for fun technical shots throughout the course. Good baskets and having multiple placements makes for a fun course to play more than once.
Cons: I found that there is quite a lot of rocks throughout the fairways and greens which can really eat up some discs if you were to play this course regularly. I wish there were more hazards other than mature trees to help with more difficult tee shots. I haven't played Rosedale under but I've heard that it is a little more difficult with window shots. I was hoping to get a little of that on Rosedale top other than hole 16 which is very cool and has you tee off having to split a medium ceiling/medium window tree gap to get to the basket.

I wish that there was signage at the end of each hole to help guide you to the next as it was hard for me to navigate sometimes. Luckily the locals are nice and had one play through with me to help guide me through.

I was told that this is a good course during the day but it is a sketchy place during the evening and night and would not really want to go over there after 5pm probably.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course seems to be an all around well set course that is mostly open with lots of big trees and multiple basket locations. Also, this park has a good amount of parking, porta-pottys (which is better than no bathrooms), tennis courts, baseball fields and other attractions beyond a decent disc golf course. I will be coming back to play this course again in 2018 when it gets warmer for sure.

Pros: Not as hard of a course to navigate as the down low but it was just as fun, concrete pads are awesome and each hole is a challenge, plus multiple placements, flat course with some tree obstacles not very technical like the bottom, if u miss slightly with your drive could still be a good shot.
Cons: some holes seemed like the same shot, not all, it had a good mixture, but when i came to these it was kinda a downer when i was like ok didnt we play a hole just like this but it was still ok.
Other Thoughts: had a great time at this park and anyone going to play make sure u have time to play both courses

Pros: -Risk/Reward everywhere
-Golfer will use every shot, every disc and every decision making scenario in their arsenal
-Great course layout. It was busy, but play was uninterrupted for the most part.
-Concrete tee pads
Cons: -Dirtiest course I've ever played. Garbage and obvious bathroom sights in the woods.
-Grass needs to be cut last week
-No trash cans to speak of
-Difficult for a first timer to navigate from basket to next tee in some places
-Noticed drug use by other golfers on the course :(
Other Thoughts: I was in KC for the weekend and just had to play. This course was within 10 minutes of the Westin and just what the doctor ordered after a 5 hr car ride. I was challenged and satisfied with this course. This course isn't in the best area, so be careful. Probably won't play here again, but I enjoyed myself for the most part.

Pros: A nice variation. Some short holes, some long, it's a very good course for the beginner to intermediate to try get out and throw some long holes and still practice on the technical ones.
Cons: really flat until about the last half of the back nine. alot of holes are just the long, straight boring shots.
Other Thoughts: Good Location, easily accessible.
