Pros: Good signs that include a graphic rendition as well as a photo of the hole.
* A stake to hang your bag on nearly every hole.
* Holes in the woods that require hitting your lines for a nice risk/reward setup.
* Some diversity which requires a variety of shots.
* Hole 17, which is a legitimate and difficult Par 4.
* Some of the wooded areas off the fairway aren't too difficult to navigate.
Cons: Wasn't able to figure out if the basket was in the A- or B-pin location from the tee.
* Hole 16, which is a toss-and-pray shot (possibly a tomahawk) uphill through the woods.
* The pin location to Hole 7 -- which is a couple feet from the edge of a hill that meets the water. Unless your shot is close or you are daring, this setup forces a layup in order to save your disc.
* A few of the longer holes fall into the "long par 3s/short par 4s" category
Other Thoughts: Practice basket and path to Hole 1 are located on the right side -- through the large parking lot past the lodge -- shortly after entering the park.

Scorecards (which include a small map) are available at the beginning of the course.

Pros: Some solid holes, parts of the course are through the woods and require good finesse shots or you get in trouble off the fairway. Concrete teepads have been installed since I last played it, so that's a definite plus, I'm not a fan of natural teepads.

A fair mix of long holes and shorter technical holes.
Cons: A few of the holes (2, maybe 3 tops) are just plain bad.

15, in the short placement, is literally a 100' downhill jump putt. In the 'long' left placement it is (or at least was, unless they cleared some stuff out) nearly impossible to reach the putting green.

16, there is absolutely no fairway to shoot to. Throw and hope you make it through the woods.

17, is a really long hole with 2 distinct doglegs to the fairway - but the fairway itself isn't wide and you definitely are in trouble if you get off the path.

These three holes could be addressed and made better pretty easily though.
Other Thoughts: Haven't played the course since they changed the layout of the last hole or two. It's not a bad course, but it's not the best I've see either. Decent use of the park. A couple of holes desperately need improvement, and would make the course feel better overall, instead of running into 3 holes in a row that are of questionable design.

 Tough Course

Pros: Layout of the course great use of the area.
Starting to get played into shape.
New tee markers.
Alternate basket locations.
Cons: I think it's hole 16 that just does not have a clear line to me, it takes a luck shot to make par.

No concrete tee pads but that is being taken care of
Other Thoughts: I think with time this will be one of the better better places in the state to play as they tweek it.

It helps that the park director is a player

 Much Improved

Pros: This course is much improved from its original layout. Holes 1-4, 8, 12, 13, 16, and 18 have been changed significantly by adding new pin placements. The original holes 17 and 18 have been combine and a new holes have been built. The course has been stretched longer than listed on several of these hole making hole 4, 7, 10, and 17 par 4. This is going to be an excellent course in years to come.
Cons: This course does not have concrete pads. This would not be a big deal, however, many of the tee areas are uneven and some contain large roots that make tees difficult to navigate.
Other Thoughts: This course is still young and the group in Moberly has worked hard to improve this course. Don't let the lack of concrete pads scare you; this one is worth playing.
