Pros: This course is a beautiful park course. Anyone can play this course without fear of "stomping through deep brush." The course has recently been stretched on a couple of holes pushing the difficultly. The creek and pond come into play on several holes. Baskets have been moved on a few holes and placed near the edge of the creek making aggressive putters take caution.
Cons: This course contains almost too many mandos for my liking. I really do not see the purpose of a mando on hole two whatsoever. To me it appears to be just another way to tighten a fairway of which I am not a fan in this case. Having said that, I do think this course needs a mando on hole 8. Nearly everyone in my group threw across the road and across 7's basket. Crossing fairways is a safety issue, and besides it is a much more beautiful and difficult hole taking the intended route. The OB on holes 1 and 2 are not clearly defined as well as the area near the playground equipment on hole 18.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course. It's nice to play a course without fighting through a jungle. This course makes good use of the park. Holes 5 and 14 in the long positions are two favorites from this course.

Lot of Fun!
Pros: Short course, right through Veterans Park. Nice and challenging, but fun to play. Fairly short. Well laid out, considering it has to compete with other park amenities/uses, and I even got my first birdie there! Good parking, nice tee signs, good pads.
Cons: Because of being in the middle of a multi-use park, some of the tee and target locations are a little awkward, but the course is designed as well as it could be. A lot of Mandos, again because of multi-use.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I enjoyed playing this course, and even being an hour away, will plan more trips there.

Pros: grass was nice and short.. pads where nice all around nice park.. verry well kept and a nice place to play... the baskets are all marked verry nice! the signs are all there and verry clear.
Cons: i couldnt find pad #16 even with the sings.
pad #8 was covered in mud and to close to a playground. and they need a walk way over the creek to get from #17 to #18. i didnt see any par markings on any of the signs..

Pros: good use of land within a multi use city park. concrete tees and tee signs look good.. good mixture of short ,medium and long shots.
Cons: still a couple of tees are in close range of playgrounds(8 and 18), shelter, sand volleyball(17), and 1 pin pretty close to a tee pad.
Other Thoughts: course plays well for all , always manicured, overall a great course

Pros: it`s a very well maintained course.
the concrete tee pads are clearly marked and have all the info you`ll need for each hole. the baskets have arrows directing you to the next tee placement. the arrows on the baskets were very helpful a couple times. without them the course could be a bit difficult to follow. i`d say the course is challenging for all skill levels. if you have a booming and accurate drive, you`ll get some birdies, i don`t consider that a con. all in all an excellent course.
Cons: i was retrieving my disc from near the lake and slid down the bank and got all muddy, my bad.
Other Thoughts: just about anybody will enjoy this course.

Pros: well kept city park with many ammenities 5 x 12 feet concrete tee pads. Mature trees with some water hazards with creek in play on a few holes, .
Cons: no tee signs.. play moved along decent after playing 2nd time, but a few holes are kind of close to each other and too close to playgrounds , tee #8 and volleyball pits., #17..
Other Thoughts: a different and decent course that has 6 water holes, not many in missouri can state that fact. add tee signs and ratings for course will go up even more..
update. 7-27-2010.. tee signs are in course is looking better

Pros: Nice use of land. The holes are not long but none are completely open. The mature trees, elevation and water hazards make this course very enjoyable without making it frustrating. Nice large concrete tee pads. Really nice descriptive Tee signs at every hole. Park is always well manicured so no bushwacking is required if you stay in the fairway. Trash cans at most holes.
Cons: Course may be too forgiving for a more advanced player but it is a ton of fun for your average Am. player. A couple holes play close to other park ammenities.
Other Thoughts: Be careful not to release early on the water holes because your not going to want to be in the nasty creek water.

nice technical course
Pros: Beautiful, well manicured city park with many ammenities including ball fields, skate park, amhpitheater, sand volley ball, basketball and tennis courts. 5 x 12 feet concrete tee pads. Mature trees with some water hazards including a creek bordering about 4 to 5 holes as well as a pond along side 2 holes. Nice flow from one hole to the next on most of the course. Nice tee signs with descriptions and distances of all holes.
Cons: Some road OBs where baskets are very close to being OB. Some holes are close to other park ammenities.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course provides a very enjoyable round of disc golf. A short finesse course (only 1 hole over 300 feet) Most holes average around 250 feet. For me this course fits the fun factor perfectly as I can't drive more than 300 feet. Of the 30 courses I have played in Missouri, this one ranks in my top 5.
