Pros: The course plays through an open prairie. There are some minor elevation changes that add a little bit of variety, and make a couple of the greens have some rollaway potential. The first hole brings an old barn into play for a fun blind anhyzer shot, and the last hole is a tight little tunnel shot offering one place on the course where you really have to hit a specific line. The holes have a pretty good mix of lengths, with several reachable holes and some that let you open up and throw a full drive. There is a course map by the parking area, and the flow of the course is quite easy once you start with mowed paths connecting each hole. The hole signs have hole layout and distance, and a next tee marker.
Cons: This course has 17 holes of my absolute least favorite kind of golf - mowed fairways through tall prairie grass. That kind of rough adds frustration and wastes time and plastic without adding any difficulty to shots from off the fairway. As this type of course goes, the elevation helps keep things a little more interesting, but it just gets really old. The tees are awful, the gravel is not level and shifts underfoot. They're actually worse than natural tees and make footing pretty treacherous when using a sunup for the longer holes.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will likely be frustrated here. The rough eats plastic, and the openness of the land means wind makes it even more difficult to stay on the fairways. More experienced players might like the shot placement challenges, and there are some chances to test your accuracy on some longer shots. Others (including me) will find this type of course more frustrating than interesting.
