Nice little rec. niner
Pros: - 9 Permanent metal baskets.
- Level cement tee pad on each hole.
- Located in a well maintained city park right next to the Heart River.
- Some nice shots forcing line shaping through the trees.
- Tee signs with hole number and distance.
- Well designed for recreational use with manageable distances for every hole. While the water is close, it doesn't offer much risk to golfers.
- Free to play.
Cons: - The baskets are in poor repair. They are also a strange design and dont catch well at all. To be fair, they catch some, one of our group aced hole #9...somehow...
- No course map. It flows pretty well and the tee signs have numbers so it's tough to get too lost. That said, a map is always appreciated for first timers.
- Not much elevation in the park. Even a rec. course deserves a little bit of up and down.
Other Thoughts: Really, a fine little rec course for a city park, just not a lot of upside. The baskets are something terrible but the actual golf is decent short range fun. We rolled in having last looked when it had a .5 disc rating and were going to play it just to snag another pelt and have a good laugh. Jaycees Park was a pleasent surprise and we thoroughly enjoyed the quick spin in a beautiful little park by the river. Well worth your 15-20 minutes if you're in town and have the time.
Pros: Easy course with short, mostly open holes in an interesting park. Easy to find tees and holes. Cool vintage baskets which work with catch discs. Well maintained. Great for beginners.
Cons: Some risk of losing discs in river on first few holes. Vintage baskets means lots of chain outs or pass throughs.
Other Thoughts: A great little course.

Ace runs on the river
Pros: If you want to work on your ace count, this is a good place to start. Every hole is about 200 feet, give or take. I didn't throw anything but my putter, Buzz, and Mako. It was kind of fun to take target practice at the holes.
Decent park along the river with some nice shade. It's not completely wide open.
This is a good starter course, which is the intent.
Cons: No real challenge here for any player who has been at it for awhile. There is the possibility of a lost disc in the river or in the thicket along the river if your drive gets away from you.
Other Thoughts: Tee pads are pretty short, but you shouldn't need any run up. Not a bad place to work on your short game. This course is the complete opposite of Patterson Lake.
I'm glad to see a course catering to beginners, although it would be nice to see more intermediate courses in the Dickinson area.

Pros: Easy eagles!
Cons: 220 foot par four! Even for be getting beginners this course is easy. 150' to 250', no elevation change, not very many obstacles. With the river lining 4 or so holes though this will be an expensive park to learn at.
Other Thoughts: Unless you live around the corner go to one of the other two courses in town. The lake for pros or someone who whats a big challenge.
