Pros: 18 concrete tee pads. Good baskets, though only 9 at this time. Many open shots but walking paths come in to play as OB's. Good beginner course and not play the paths OB in a casual round.
Good place to practice playing in the wind when the wind IS blowing, as there are not too many trees except along the creek to block the wind.
The club has worked on getting some thick brushy areas cleaned out.
Cons: Many of the tee signs are gone or broke because of vandalism so it's getting harder to follow the course if you are new to the course. After a rain it gets very sloppy and muddy.
One of the bridges across the creek is broke and makes crossing the creek rough, especially if pulling a cart.
Very little elevation.
Other Thoughts: The club has gone through some changes but are getting things back on track now. They are working on getting approval for another 9 holes to make this course 18 baskets. That will improve this part of the course as it will then have pro and Am pads.
I'm not sure why the city does not fix the bridge as it may cause injury. When it rains hard the creek goes over banks, that is why the bridge is broke. Having followed the creek, there is no where for it to drain.
If you are new to course, the holes alternate between long shot, short shot. For example, hole 2 plays off of the longer shot pad, hole 3 plays off of shorter shot pad, hole 4 plays off of longer shot pad, etc, to hole 10, which shoots up to basket 1, then hole 11 shoots to basket 2 from closer pad.
Room for improvement on this course and hopefully will happen with club changes.

Whilest visiting the Lake...
Pros: Challenging basket locations.
Easy to follow for a first timer.
Concrete Tee Pads.
Nice cart paths.
Cons: Sitting water after rain.
18 tee pads 9 baskets, only ran into another group twice and they let us play through.
Other Thoughts: Perfect course to play for begginers looking for a challenge. A must hit for the vacationing disc golfer.
Open but Overlapping
Pros: Concrete Tee Pads
Multiple Basket Placement
Good use of OB and Mandos
Cons: The course doubles back on itself
Other Thoughts: This is a nice course in an area with not too many close courses, but it should probably just be a 9 hole instead of 18. Since there are only 9 baskets there is an opportunity that if there's more people on the course people could be throwing at the same basket.
However if you like decent distant with a few technical holes this is a good course. There is a good use of Mandos and using the path as OB forces you to be more accurate then you would otherwise have to.

Pros: Just recently got all concrete tee pads on the course, as well as trimmed up some of the wooding around a few pads to make them easier to see from the walkway. new signs will be the next thing going in. should be looking great in 2014!
Cons: can get a little swampy through the winter, but most courses do.
Other Thoughts: Really excited to see the improvement of this course of the next couple years.

A Quick and Fun Challenge
Pros: -Good tee signs and I found it easy to navigate the course.
- It's been very dry in the area for the last month, so the creek was dried up.
-Nice Innova Discatchers all in great shape. Elevated pin on #4.
-It was 95+ degrees out when I played but playing 3 or more rounds of 9 holes would be easy in a little cooler weather.
Cons: -Dirt tee pads. Since the holes didn't play very long, this wasn't a huge bother.
-If your staying anywhere around the Lake of the Ozarks, this is pretty much your only option outside of driving 90 or more minutes.
Other Thoughts: I take a week vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks area every year and I will plan to play this course each time.
The Ozarks are such a beautiful part of the country, I wish there was more courses around. This course, however, was a plesant surprise.

Pros: 1. a dg course in middle MO.
2. Nice baskets with yellow rims.
This course was a surprise to find. The park is nice. Each hole marked with a sign most with multiple pin selections. They are hand made at this point but do the trick. There is a few shots that contend with a water hazard. Has a good tunnel shot.
Cons: The drainage wasn't the greatest but it has rained a bunch the day before. Need cement tees and i dont think i saw any trash cans.
Other Thoughts: If you at the lake of the ozarks and going back west hit this up on the way through and knock it off the list.
Nice quiet course
Pros: Excellant beginners coarse an a nice variety of shots. The creek made it quite interesting since there were trees close by. No real long shots for those who dont have as much throwing power.
Cons: Basket 3 a little hard to find. (its on a ridge in the trees). On the back side of the course the is a row of apartment housing. could be marked a little better.
Other Thoughts: Will play it again when I come thru that area!

Nice tight course in small village park
Pros: A pleasant suprise to find a dg course in the middle of nowhere. Short tees provide a very nice course for the beginner. All tees have a nice sign detailing pin location. Pins are all nice big Yellow Innova baskets...Can't miss 'em. 3 is a nice hard tunnel drive 100 feet to a 90 degree dog-leg right. 4's pin up in the tree is an excellent touch. 6 has a 45 degree dog-leg right, that if you try to take it too early gets you into some brush that'll add two strokes. 8 plays 250 feet to a creek crossing up to the tree speckled green. 9 plays left to right up a slight incline and tucked into a huge goalie of a tree.
Cons: Hard to find long tees.
Hard to find 7 & 8 after 6. Hint, go to through the creepy/muddy wooded path to the right of 6's pin, walking about 10 feet off the creek. You'll see 7 after you poke back out into that big field where 5 was.
Holes 1, 5, 7 are just wide open fields without much interest and very hot in the direct sun w/out shade.
The creek crossing for hole 6 requires finagling yourself from a muddy creek bank onto some pallets. An excellent scout project would be to fashion a permanent bridge over this path.
Lots of trash back in the woods between 6 and 7, probably from local kids hanging out.
Other Thoughts: After playing this course a second time after being told by some locals where to find 7&8, I think 8 is one of my favorite holes on this course. Some arrows on the top of the baskets to point to the next tee would be a great addition to this course for new visitors.
Perfectly playable park, and I gather they've been doing some development as the tees are now well marked with nice signage.
