Right behind the zoo!
Pros: Well constructed tee box areas with red gravel, the nebdisc website says concrete, but I think they are mistaken. I played it only a few weeks after they opened it, so anything is possible. Each teebox has a nice four foot tall decorative log placed next to it for maps and information, there was nothing on the log faces when I was there but I got the impression that there would soon be map information on them. The course has very convenient parking because the first tee is located right behind the parking lot for a local swimming pool or rec center.
I stopped at the Zoo to ask for directions and the lady working there was very helpful, she told me that they have loner discs available too. As a big fan of disc golf courses in natural settings, this course did not disappoint. It is populated with huge old cottonwood trees, the sort you would find in the plains near a river. The first three holes are short but the course lengthens up in the end. I would say that this is a good course for all skill types with a slant toward beginners.
Cons: There are some multi use danger areas, near parking and playgrounds. The back portion of the course has a hole the runs close to the RV park. I did not have a map and was a little bit confused at some point in the middle. I shared the course with about thirty eight-year-old boys who were out there for some function and they were super polite and helpful. The course only has nine holes, but there is room for expansion.
Other Thoughts: When I played the course was only a few weeks old. By a stroke of luck I read about its grand opening on their newspaper's website. It was close to 100 degrees and, I drank so much water that I worried I was overdoing it. I took many pictures of this course and they are all sadly somehow lost in the digital world. This course is still (as of today) unlisted at the PDGA directory (Who needs that anymore? Right?). I Guess for now we'll just have to be a DGCR user to be hip tho the panhandle's newest course. I wonder which community in western Nebraska will be the first to have 18 holes.
