 The Road Signs say: Do Not Enter - LOL

Pros: Let me start out by pointing out that the side of the world I tried to get here on, had every road sign saying, Do Not Enter. I am guessing every one-way road was only pointing out only. So since my GPS didn't find an alternate route... let's just say there was no one out on these dirt country roads. This 9-hole course has lots of elevation, decent pin placements, some sloped greens, and a few trees. The first hole at the top of the biggest hill and is a straight shot down hill to a pin with a tree to the right of the basket. This hole has OB to the right, behind it and if you go to far to the left (or catch a bad roll), to the left too. This hole is all risk/reward, because you can reach the basket in 1 throw. This is an interesting start to this course. This course used the hills and the land to get a nice 9-hole course in. The tee signs are nice and the course is fairly easy to follow along. On last thing to mention, you really will feel like you are a long way from civilization and the view from up here is pretty cool with a covered picnic area to enjoy.
Cons: The grass tees are wood planks marking the tee. The ground isn't always level, but tee areas are not in too bad of shape. Every hole is a straight shot, so playing here can get dull quickly. There is no bathrooms or trashcans here.
Other Thoughts: This is a great little place to take someone for their first time, but serious golfers will not want to play this more than once. The Fun Factor here was not really there. The first hole was a fun hole, but it was certainly the highlight. Don't get me wrong; this is not a bad course, just very simple. If you need elevation practice, this might be your place.

Pros: The location of this 9 hole course is a the highest point in the park and overlooks the adjacent river which is nice.
- Nice tee signage and navigation was easy even though there is no course map.
- Elevation changes were fantastic given the compact are in which the course is layed out.
- Great course for families to play together. There is really no chance of losing a disc and it could be played with only a mid-range disc or potentially a frisbee if you really had to....
- Scenery is great and the trees were utilized/incorporated very well with basket placement.
Cons: - The course is too open for the serious disc golfer. Not enough of a real challenge due to lack of trees.
- Restrooms are only located at the start of the main 18 hole course a couple of minutes drive back into the main part of the park.
- Tees would actually be nice to see as concrete since there is no real wooded area to detract from. It would be beneficial for the beginning disc golfer.
Other Thoughts: This is a very hilly layout similar to the 18 hole course. The real benefit is 2-fold. It offers serious DG players to warm up before a round on the 18 hole course, and it offers families picknicking at the upper pavilion a great activity option. I applaud the City of Atchison for their efforts.
