Pros: Beautiful. Some shade. Bathrooms. Water holes but not that difficult.
Cons: Near the police station.
Other Thoughts: Nice course and I didn't have any issues with stickers. Maybe they just mowed it or sprayed it but whatever it was it would was in great condition.

Great first 4 holes
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Wonderful signage with directions to next tees
Varied shots, pin placements, tee options, and of course terrain
Beautiful views across the river
Great access to the Police station
Easy access from I-35
Cons: Cockleburrs are abundant on holes 5 - 18 (use gloves to remove them or expect small bloody pricks)
Couple holes play close to busy street
Couple holes play close to Police station
Tees for #3 are a longer walk than the signage suggests
Other Thoughts: Man oh man, this would be my favorite course in Wichita without the cockleburrs. I won't be back unless they're eradicated.

Pros: Great design! This course has a little bit for everyone!
My son and I are decent (Not Great) and this course gave us a challenge... yet was very enjoyable. It seems a little longer than others I have played but I think that works in the courses favor. There are many trees but not so many you feel defeated before you even throw your disc :) The tee boxes are great with awesome signage (i took pics) each sign gives directions to the next set of tees!
Cons: Only 2 things... it needed to be mowed, but in defense of the city, there has been a lot of rain lately.
the only other thing is the stickers... wow there are a lot of stickers. I can't see that ever not being an issue at this course because of the sandy nature of the soil and the fact that it would cost the city a ton of money to spray to even try to kill them off.
Other Thoughts: I will be playing this course often! If you are anywhere near Wichita and are looking for a place to play... it is worth the drive regardless of you level!

Pros: -Trees consistent throughout the whole course
-Safe place to play as there is a police station in the park
-In a neat area with cool surrounding features
-Very well marked
Cons: -The busy road to the outside of some holes.
Other Thoughts: I played one of my best games on this course and I'm just a beginner. Not to say it doesn't have its challenges. The course and park have some neat features but I'm not a fan of the holes close to the busy road. The sandy hole 18 was a cool feature and I even got that hole in 2 shots. I would definitely play this course again.

Pros: Herman's Hill in Wichita is a fine representative of good disc golf in Kansas, from of the handful of courses I have played there. It has dual tees on every hole, and two basket locations for each as well. I think mostly they were in the shorter layout when I played there. There were good signs on every tee, and the baskets were fine. The park itself was very nice, with a river and other water features in play occasionally. The majority of the course is grassy, with large trees scattered throughout. There are a few holes with elevation changes that make things more fun, like 4, 5, 17, and 18. A few holes with considerable length where par 3 is no easy task, such as holes 6 and 10, each over 550' from the long tees. The water will also influence shot selection. 12 is especially tricky driving over a small creek with plenty of trees and a low ceiling. 16 crossed the same creek but much closer to the basket, making a good drive crucial. The couple of holes along the river have a little more room for error. I liked the placement of the tee boxes and pin locations, using the trees well to require different shots for each fairway. My favorite holes were 4, 5, 11, 12, and 16, but the rest were also pretty good. Overall park is very clean, grass is short, and other activities are available to for those not interested in throwing discs.
Cons: There are several holes that are near roads, sidewalks, and other potentially dangerous misfires. Number 1, 10, 12, and 16 in particular. Not super technical, may not be a strong enough challenge to the advanced player. There is the hazard of losing discs to water, but not overly dangerous if you can trust your arm to be accurate. Wind will almost always be in play on the plains, and it got me once or twice.
Other Thoughts: I liked the Herman Hill Park disc golf course. A fun round on a fantastic October afternoon. I was recovering from a bachelor party the previous night, and was only able to manage a 59 from the long tees. Still, I had my chances at some birdies despite a couple of unusually bad throws. There is a police sub-station near the parking area, promoting feelings of safety, and good behavior. Wichita is a town with plenty of fun things to do, and if you are enthusiastic about disc golf, I think you will count playing here as one of them.

Pros: Well marked and easy to follow. Multiple tees with signs and benches are nice to have. Has enough variety to keep it interesting. If you have a big arm there a some lengthy holes. The river makes some other wise plain holes more of a challenge. This is a fairly difficult course.
Cons: This is a fairly difficult course. There are stickers in some portions of the course, so be prepared to take care of them.

Pros: -Multiple Pins
-Great Signage (Still up after 2013 Doo-Dah)
-Wide Variety of Shots Required
-Excellent use of Trees and Water
-Quality Baskets & Well Marked
Cons: -Mandos not always clear
-Signs not revamped for the Doo-Dah were useless
Other Thoughts: Not much bad to say about the course. Definitely a challenge, especially in the Kansas wind, but hey, that's what this course was designed for. Takes a golfer with distance and incredible accuracy to score well on this course. For the rest of us, it's a fun challenge, and well worth the horrible score to play. Well worth a drive. Do yourself a favor and get out to Herman for a great experience!

Pros: Great course, 2 sets of launches. Never boring, you get a good work-out. Always well maintained and tourney ready. Nice mixture of woods and long open holes.
Cons: Brutal course for beginners. Big drop-off on holes 6, 14, 15, 16. Holes 1-5 if thrown out of bounds your disc will get run over by passing vehicles. Bring your arm to play this course.

Pros: Easy to navigate. Great tee pads with obvious markings for red and blue. Good baskets. The water center is pretty cool i the middle of park. the rolling hills for 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,11,12 very nice and fun to work different shots on.
Cons: Sand burrs = terrible. Not a big fan of holes with sand fairways. Although 18s mogul is pretty cool.
