Good course. Could be improved easily
Pros: Baskets: 9 innova discatchers. They are slightly rusted but I did not have any issues with spit outs.
Variety: All holes are flat, however, there are hyzers, anhyzers, dog legs, open, and wooded holes. A few of the baskets are blind shot and a few of them have potential for an ace. Fairways are typically wide enough to not have any problems but the rough is thick enough to make or break your day. Holes range from ~170-400 feet.
Signs: signs list hole number, par, map of hole, and location of next tee. Hole one sign has additional information about disc golf itself and where to rent or borrow discs.
Course was very beautiful during the fall. Plenty to do at this Clark including playgrounds, dog park, walking paths, etc.
Not a beginner course. Definitely an intermediate course. Challenging 9 hole course.
For the the most part, it was easy to navigate once you find hole 1. Blind shots require a little backtracking to find the basket.
Course is a good compliment to course at Purdue North Central.
Cons: Lots of poison ivy on holes 5-9. Bring sanitizer.
Dirt tees: I usually don't have an issue with dirt tees but there were no markings such as a wooden 2x4 in ground labeling the front of tee area. Also, since it is a 9 hole course, dual tees are essential. Plenty of space to add second tees on each hole.
Chains: very rusted. Course was installed in 2009 but chains look like they were made in the 90s.
Noise: although a scenic course, you can hear the highway from every hole.
No signs once in the parking area pointing you to tee for hole 1. However, there is a sign pointing you to the parking lot for disc golf. If you walk a diagonal line from the corner of parking lot, you will find sign for hole 1.
No trash cans and only one bench once you enter disc golf section of park.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course but it could use a few improvements such as better tees, dual tees, benches, and arrows pointing you towards the next tee (from previous basket). It would boost the rating of this course from a 2.5 to a 3 or even a 3.5 (if all of the above was fixed). This course has room to expand to 18 holes (not counting dual tees) which is always a plus.
I will definitely come back to this course. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to beginners in the area (they will get frustrated with the rough) as well as any intermediate players in the area. Pro players would enjoy this course if they are looking to improve.

Pros: New course. New signs. New Baskets
It may be a short 9 hole course but it is challenging.
Holes 1-4 favor left to right shots. Some being tighter than others
Holes 5 and 7 are the longest holes on the course that have tight fairways and more turnovers than Pepperidge farms.
Hole 6 is one of the shorter 3's on the course but has the most narrow fairway and nestled basket.
Hole 8 is straight as an arrow and wide open. No real challenge here except the constant yap or howl from the adjacent dog park.
Cons: The entire course is flat. So flat in fact, it could probably get certified for the Americans With Disabilities Act.
If you have a big arm (which I dont) there is not really any hole that will let you air it out.
Other Thoughts: Being my "home course" I have noticed the more I play it, the more character it actually has. Winter play opens up a ton of shots that leaves/summer play just dont allow.
Overhand shots are your friend on this course especially on the tight holes.
Either I am not allergic to poison ivy or it is not existant on this course. What is there is chiggers and they are ruthless in the late summer/early fall so wear long socks.
