Pros: One of the best courses in the area in my opinion. Course is very long compared to other courses around. The holes make good use of trees and elevation. Scenery on the course really is exceptional.
Cons: As other reviews have already stated, the navigation on this course really is abysmal. Several makes you back track to get from the previous basket to the next tee pad, and every single hole requires at least a bit of walking to the next tee. (The walk from hole 9 to hole 10 and the walk from hole 15 to hole 16 are the worst by far)
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a great, long, challenging course that experienced players will surely love! Long holes that you can really give all you got are few and far between for more advanced players in the area but this course gives you plenty of opportunities to throw over 400 feet. Would not recommend playing this course for the first time without someone who has played it before, it would be almost impossible to find every hole. If navigation on this course was some sort of resemblance of coherence this course would easily be 4.5-5 stars for me.

Side note: the course offers two tee locations for every hole, this is listed on this website as well as on the teepads. The long tee pads are the concrete tee pads and the location of the tee sign is the location of the short tees, this may clear up some confusion over the "random" tee sign placement!

missed opportunity

Pros: Beautiful and spacious park; nice elevation changes, mature trees, green grass.
Cons: Total missed opportunity. The only explanation here is that the course was designed by someone who has never played disc golf before. The layout makes no sense at all. Navigation is very confusing. The signs seem to be arbitrarily located somewhere between the long tee pad and short tee pad, but since there are not tee pads for all of them it is hard to tell really. The signs are terrible, the absolute worst I have ever seen- they offer barely a clue as to which direction you are even supposed to throw. The design does not take advantage of the elevation changes or trees. Most hole layouts are redundant, not very interesting.
Other Thoughts: This park has all the potential for a 3.5-4.0 rated course, but it would take a complete redesign to get there.

Hated the flow.....

Pros: Concrete tee pads for the white tees on 15 of 18 tees.
Big signs that at least got you in the neighborhood of the next tee.
Beautiful park, well manicured (getting first mow of season as I was playing)
Good mixture of hole length.
Cons: Holes 4 and 5 had no concrete pads- construction of baseball field looks to have been where the tee pads should have been- no sign for hole 4.
Absolutely hated the layout. Way too much walking around looking for signs or where the baskets were located.
Hole 15 throws away from everything and you have to walk back the same way to get to 16!?
Looked as though 12-13-14 were reconfigured from attached map.
Worst flow of any of the 70+ courses I have played.
Other Thoughts: I travel from North Dakota to St Louis regularly and am trying to hit as many courses as possible. That said, I wish I had read the reviews prior to going.
all had the same theme re: the layout.
Wanted to quit after about 7 holes, stuck it out but regretted every minute of it.
Someone needs to reconfigure the layout to give it an acceptable flow.
Only gave it as high as a 1.5 because it is in a nice park.

 Two loops

Pros: -The white tee pads seemed nice if you can find them.
-There are also a variety of long, short, technical, open, uphill and downhill holes.
-Baskets were in good shape.
Cons: -I did not like the sign/tee pad lay out. If you wanted the white, you had to find the red sign then walk backwards (unless you saw it on your way), if you use red, it was often bumpy footing. Also not all signs were accurate and not at all aligned with the hole. A couple blind shots I aimed 40 yards off because the sign pointed me in the wrong direction.
-The walk from (I think) 8-9 was pretty lengthy and some holes I had to take a detour because it was too wet or the ground was tore up.
Other Thoughts: -I think it would make more sense to put the signs by the white tees, then maybe a post or something to mark the red tees. Another option would be to just have one set of tees.
-Some of the holes have an alternate location that has added distance. The signs do not note this change.
-The course basically makes two loops, one that goes through the western part of the course and the back 9 through the northern section.

 Confusing Course

Pros: Nice mixture of hyzer and anhyzer shots. Well maintained.
Cons: No concrete tees, hard to find where the tee is.
Other Thoughts: I spent more time looking for the tee than I did playing. The signs were easy enough to find, but most of the time they were not near the tee. The only thing around to show you where the tee is are tiny concrete markers, but not all the holes had them. Hole 9, in particular, had it's white tee 50 feet away from the sign.

Make the tees/signs less confusing and you have a pretty decent course that is great for beginners and long time players alike.

Pros: Wide open spaces. No real traffic to throw near. Beautiful woods.
Cons: Layout is a little bizarre at times and poorly marked. Not as much variety as other nearby courses.
Other Thoughts: Fun course, yet it is just not as good as 2 other courses in a drive nearby.

Pros: Some long holes for the big arms as well as some birdie and Ace runs. Uses the elevation to the most part, shooting downhills and up some hills. Lots of people at the park but they really did not come into play.
The course was very well maintained, clean and the grass was thick but cut short. Good baskets.
Room for alternate pin placement. Was easy to find way around once you played it, but I had a map.
Cons: NO CONCRETE PADS!! It's been addressed in most reviews, but with them it would greatly improve this course. Need to at least place them on the white tees. Not sure why they placed the hole signs at the red tees. Have to walk way up to see the sign to get info, the walk back to white tees. I didn't hit any of the signs, but if you do, it's going to put one major gouge in your disc. Dumb sign placement. Looong walk from hole 9 to 10. Was hard to find hole #3 basket.
Need some trash cans on at least a few of the holes.
Other Thoughts: Going to be top notch once they put in concrete pads and move the signage. Would like to play it again once they have real pads.

 Poor Design

Pros: Some nice elevation change throughout the course. White (long) tees are fairly easy to find and were where I played from.

The course has some length that will allow even highly skilled golfers to unleash some big drives. Several holes over 400 feet and several more in that 280-360 range. Hole 7 is a nice looking 280 foot snaking downhiller that requires a good shot through the trees. About 9 of the 18 are somewhat interesting holes that demand good shots to take birdies.
Cons: Overall, this course is pretty boring and not fun to play. The grass tees are often not level and were difficult to throw from in the morning dew. Alot of unecessary walking back and forth is required due to a poor design. The biggest disappointment is that severl of the pins could be extended to areas that would have made them great holes. Instead the best sections of the park are left mostly untapped. Hole 12 was the best example of this in my mind. A nice little turnover 280 foot downhill shot to the crest of a hill. But when you get to the pin and look how far the hill goes down into the woods, its mind boggling why they wouldn't have put a pin down there. Instead you walk down the hill to the next tee. Often there is a bit of a walk in between holes which is perplexing. Why not just use every inch of the park instead of spending all this time walking just to play a wide open hole? The fact that most of the holes offer few obstacles contributes to the lack of fun factor.
Other Thoughts: With a redesign to better utilize all sections of the park and eliminate the long walks, this could be a 4/5 course I believe. Also, the signs should be next to the white tees. Those wishing to play the reds could then walk forward to the tee instead of the current situation where you walk to the sign and see where the white tee is and then backtrack.

Pros: After reading the other reviews, most of the cons pointed out have been addressed, except the desire for concrete tees. The park and course are very well maintained. It`s a big park so the course is spread out nicely. A nice mix of long and short holes with some elevation changes. There were a lot of people in the park when I played but they were never in play. I never had to yell, "FORE".
Theres a lot of signage on the course, the white tees are easy to find. The red tees are just the area near the hole sign. There are a few hole in one opportunities if you have a long accurate drive, I do not, LOL.
Cons: The only real con was that though there was a lot of signage/directions on the course, some was innacurate or misleading. Particularly holes #5 & #9, the basket is not where the sign indicates. On the front nine when they thought there might be a problem finding the next tee, they put up a "to next tee" sign. On the back nine there are no such signs and the course can be hard to follow. To find hole #10 I had to go back to the main course directory. Then I had to backtrack from the basket on #13 to find the tees and baskets for 11&12. If not for this problem, I`d have rated the course a 4.
Other Thoughts: WORTH THE DRIVE

Pros: This was a nice course. There is a good mix of long and short shots. The skill set needed for the course makes it good for beginners yet being challenging enough for more experienced players.
Cons: The location for the red tees was easily found but I didn't want to play the short tees. I therefore spent too much time figuring out where the white tees should be. The layout left a little to be desired, causing one to cross other hole's lines of play. Bring a copy of the course's map because the layout is quite confusing without it.
Other Thoughts: If the designer would make a few changes to make the holes more contiguous, mark all the tees and install concrete tees, I could easily see this becoming a 4 rated course.
