Pros: Smp is a average course in a very nice multi-use park. Points for good size tee pads, trash cans, signage. Between parks/rec and the kc flying disc club course is well maintained and mowed. One of a few in south KC and much easier than Prairie Center and a lot shorter than Wyco. A friendly course to learn the game on but still not always an easy par round.
Cons: 7,8,9 can be tough on windy days. 11-15 are bland back and forth. Gotta be sneaky with beers and other refreshments due to park cops in cars and bikes.
Other Thoughts: Pins are getting moved more often. League on tues nights during warm months. Looks like more improvements around tee pads and maybe some new holes in 2013. for event info

 Lots of potential. Needs a little work.

Pros: New Mach 3 baskets. Ample parking. Good topography. Practice basket. A beautiful, huge park.
Cons: Grass (ie: dirt) tees. An abundance of straight holes. Little distance variation. No course signage.
Other Thoughts: My first thought when I arrived at the course was "Where is it?" The directions were a little confusing for a first-time visitor and the absence of a course welcome sign made it a little tough to figure out where the course started.

Tees are marked by boards buried flush with the ground, so it was a bit difficult in some places to immediately find the next tee.

The first 6 or so holes were a good start. Good variety of shot shapes and trees are plentiful. Unfortunately, the rest of the course seemed to be dominated by the "wide open drive to a protected basket" type of hole. I also found that most of the holes seemed to play to about the same distance. With the available land, it seemed that the course could have used a few multi-shot holes (par 4s) and a few shorter finesse holes to make things a bit more interesting.
