Pros: - Baskets are in good shape
- Existence of tee signs
Cons: - Mostly natural tee pads
- 2:1 tee-to-basket ratio
- Technically, it's an "18-hole" course but realism says it's a 9-hole course that you just have to play twice
- The difference in distance between the front/back nine tees is way off; there was one hole in particular where the back nine tee was literally 2 steps to the right but somehow the hole was lengthened by like 50ft
- Very close to the river so I've heard that it floods quite a bit
- Course fits very snugly within a walking/running trail
Other Thoughts: - It's a disc golf course so it has that going for it. It's great for practicing at if you don't have time to drive out to Cedars Resort.

Pros: The park has good, sturdy baskets. It was fairly well maintained.
Cons: Mosquitoes EVERYWHERE!!!
SUPER precise shots are required.
The park is just across the street from a number of houses. Which is somewhat distracting when cars constantly drive by.
Other Thoughts: I only got through the front 9 baskets before the mosquitoes got to be too much. The layout was a little confusing. Besides the bugs, the low hanging branches of the trees was the worst. There is no good way to avoid them. It was not my favorite park, but it was different.

Pros: Located in town for easy quick access on the east side of town
Shade over the whole course
Trees add challenge to an otherwise flat, simple course
Neighbors seemed nice which is important because their homes are across the street from half the holes and a stray shot can end up in their yards
Cons: Pooling water in wet periods
Other Thoughts: While this is listed as 18 holes, it's really 9 with separate tees. Smart use of limited space.

Pros: Secluded
Cons: Low-hanging trees
Mildly swampy.
Tee signs could use a bit more info (path behind basket, etc)
Other Thoughts: Considering the course is geared for beginners, it's an excellent course.
Double tee-pads give options to change things up a bit.
Signs are nice with good information (could use a bit more)
Since there's only a walking path surrounding the course, there's very little time spent waiting for other users of the park.

Several of the trees are in need of trimming back.
Hole 1 has a less-than 5ft hole to throw through.
Baskets are nice.

 A Good Warm-Up Course

Pros: - This course is located in a nice little peaceful park
- Nice baskets that are in great shape
- Tee signs at every hole
- Lots of trees make the course challenging
- Well maintained course
- Grass was cut well and looked nice
- Risk/ Reward shots and OB comes into play to make it a little more challenging
- Mix of lengths of holes.
Cons: - NO ELEVATION at all. This is extremley weird for being located in Branson because it is so hilly. It would have been nice for a hole to be on the bluff for an extreme downhill shot.
- Grass teepads (exept for 8). It would have been nice to have concrete.
- The course was full of sand and after i played it, it was all in my shoes. I guess this sand is because of the lake that is nearby, but it did effect the course
- The park is really really small. it is a round robin kind of course. it makes a loop around the park and i was suprized that they were able to fit 9 holes into this course.
- When it is wet, the course doesnt drain well at all as there was some standing puddles when i played.
- All of the holes were straight up the middle and really werent challenging.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a boring course. It really is just a good warmup course or a good place for a begginer. If you are in the Branson area, I would suggest to play the Treehouz course in Ridgedale, MO or you could play this course as a warm-up. This course is really just a check off the list course and i wont be coming back.

Pros: This course is set in a really pretty area. Big cliffs directly against the course on your north and a lake to the south. I am amazed how they fit 9 baskets and 18 pads on this land as it is only 200 feet wide, yet very long. You will never lose your disc in the bluffs or in the water (which is very far away, you would only worry about the road which is hard to reach still).
Cons: This course just drags on. For starters on the front nine the first four holes all go straight east, the 5th goes north, and the last four go straight west back to where you started. The same goes for the back nine as the 2nd set of pads are very close to the original pads, if not the same pad (how is that even considered a new hole?). While you have to keep your disc low, there isn't much variation in shot selection, especially since you are always going the same direction. It is hard to convince yourself to go back in another circle for the back nine. This is why I played the front and back at the same time.
Other Thoughts: I am glad that Branson has this course, as it was an easy one to pick up on my way to Treehouz. However, I didnt want to spend too much time here as the course was dull. There are holes with good distance, but the overall shot variety was not great.

Pros: Easy to play, pretty park. Low trees force you to keep your throws low. Good practice course.
Cons: Map is kinda hard to follow because of all the quick turns. Low trees make some shots hard for newbies.
Other Thoughts: Lost a disc on 18. The woods are not thick but the undergrowth OB will eat your discs. Watch where they go.

Pros: Very good use of the area given that it is probably not more than 300 feet wide at any spot.
Ive played tournaments there without many problems as far as fairways being too tight. But with a lot of newer players out there, it could be a different story.
Great place to utilize a roller shot.

Really close to The Journey Post disc golf shop.
Cons: Prone to flooding. Not really a knock on the course itself but more the unfortunate location and its proximity to taneycomo.
Mostly natural teepads. Some are a little choppy, however locals have started a league and are going to start with workdays soon I think.
Other Thoughts: There are established back 9 teepads.
There is a league there tuesday nights, singles, 2 divisions.

Pros: It's in Branson, and this is the only course you can say that about. A couple of the holes have some challenge, and a couple more are legitimate ace opportunities. This is a quiet location and kind of scenic along the river, and the course makes pretty good use of really limited space.
Cons: A LOT of shots require keeping your disc less than 6 feet off the ground. Nice practice for doing that, but it gets old and some otherwise nice holes are made less nice by it. The mix of tee types is confusing, the park is kind of hard to find, and some of the back nine tees are hard to find.
Other Thoughts: I won't say the locals are rude, but. We arrived late in the afternoon hoping to get in a quick 18. There was a young family there, they were playing 3 when we started. Dad and 2 boys about 9 or 10 were playing, Mom was spectating. We passed when we were playing 3 and they 6, I said hi to Dad and he stuck his nose up and said NOTHING. None of the 3 of them would throw until the whole family was looking at them, and when Dad threw, he had to stand and look at the shot, make 5 or 6 false starts, then make his poor to average throw. We caught up to them on 12, they could easily have waited at 13 and let us play through, but didn't. There was no way we'd be able to finish before dark behind them, there was no way they were going to finish before dark, so we bailed. Disc'ers are usually so much more cool than that, but they acted like they were po'd that we were there, and we weren't drinking, cussing, or anything.

 Good, not great

Pros: Beautiful park and very well maintained. The baskets are in good shape and there is relatively little traffic other than other disc golfers. Many of the young Cypress trees have low clearance making for challenging drives. Park is laid out well considering the small amount of land there is.
Cons: There are only 9 baskets, having a different tee for each basket does help... but this is something that could definitely be improved upon. Many of the young Cypress trees have low clearance making for challenging drives (I listed this as pro and con).
Other Thoughts: Additional holes to make a true 18 hole course would be nice... but I don't see how that would be possible in this area.
