Pros: -easy to navigate
-plenty of parking all around hole 1 and practice basket
-tee pads are in good shape
-baskets are all in good shape
-great course for beginners and a good test for someone who has been playing for a while with all the water in play
Cons: -good signage that has been tested over time and is starting to fall apart
-there obviously used to be a club that cared about the upkeep of this course but that seems to no longer be the case
-the distance on hole 16 is off, it plays about 350 ( sign says 250)
-just overall not taken care of
Other Thoughts: Claystone is the course that I first ever threw a disc on back in 2011, way before I got hooked on Disc Golf the way I am now. At that time all the signage was in great shape and people played all the time and took care of the course. Now from what I saw I can tell that the club that used to be there is no longer controlling things and a lot of work could be done and make this course a 3.5 or a 4 star type of place.

Pros: Concrete teepads
Holes 11-18 are OK
If you like a course with multiple ace runs then holes 1-10 are sure to not dissapoint. Most of these holes are in the 200ft. range and are unoriginal and seem repetitive.
Simple and very basic in design.
Other Thoughts: For a pay to play course I would like more of challange than this course presents.
The lack of creativeness really hurts this course. There is a nice lake that comes into play on the back holes which provides more of a challange, but because the front 9 is so weak this course is deserving of the lowest rank I have ever given for a review. For me, the course really did not get interesting till hole 11, and by that time the round was already half over.

Pros: Very pretty park on a lake with many other activities available other than disc golf. Tees are well marked and signs are in goos repair. The course and park have recovered well from the 2008 tornado that did quite a bit of damage. All the tees anre back in place and the course has been cleaned p from all the debris that was left behind. There is very little elevation change available here but what is available was used very well adding some variation and intrest. All the locals I ran into were very nice folks and the people at the front takeing your money will direct to the starting hole.
Cons: With the exception of the last four holes this is a short course. However the tress and terain have been used well to add enough difficulty. There had been quite a bit of rain lately and the curse suffered quite a bit with drainage problems. This added a subtantial mosquito population to add some disraction too. Bring repellant. There are not enough trash cans available and probably explains all the trash on the course. Mostly used water bottles, no excuse for leaveing these behind guys. Clean up after yourself.
Other Thoughts: Even though most of the holes are very short here 200 ft or shorter, there is plenty of fun to be had. A few alternate tees would go a long way to adding difficulty and fun to this course. The more accomplished players are going to post real impressive scores here. It is worth the $3.00 to come and see hole #15 and the long water throw. Not many can carry the water straight at the basket, but most can throw accross the short way and then you can say you braved the water hole.
