Pros: -Very technical course, shots require lots of accuracy
-built on rolling hills which provide elevation changes and blind up shots
-Signage is very good, signs even list the current tee position which is excellent
-newer baskets
-tee pads are longer than most
-17 is a very fun hole over a small water hazard
-obviously maintained regularly by parks dept.
-2nd set of tee pads for newer players/children/weaker arms; good course for an entire family, also a good starter course
-Bricks at foot of baskets for navigation to next tee
-lots of people always list bad neighborhood as a con; this seems to be a in a very safe area
-newer course
Cons: -multiple holes that you are throwing right at a tree or a group of fairways on some holes
-virtually no chances to air it out and watch it fly
-par 3 fest
-Course is very tightly organized, moderate chance of not seeing someone due to hills and with a bad shot or a tree ricochet, hitting someone with a disc
-navigation could be confusing the first time through due to 2 tee pad setup
-no benches, bag hooks or restrooms that I could see
Other Thoughts: I feel the water hazard angle is exaggerated. On 7, it is very easy to avoid because it is open air. On 10, it takes a bad shot or a massive hook to go in and there is also a large pine tree that I threw right into just to stop the disc and go for a par. and on 17, that is just a great hole and even a throw into the water is not the end of the world. It is shallow and disc would be retrievable. the 7/10 pond however would probably be the last time you saw the disc if you go into the middle of it.

yes there are a lot of tunnel shots which is a con, but not a massive one. My main complaint would be the lack of distance the tunnel shots cover. ~300 max basically

Overall a very nice course, not far from KC metro, avoids all the KC metro course problems

 fun course

Pros: Very technical shots required on most holes. Drives need to be on target and on distance. I really enjoyed playing this course. The fairways are not ridiculously tight just nicely challenging.

I really like this course. Even though the holes are generally short, they are very well laid out. Most holes require a placement drive so that you're in position for a midrange. It makes a nice change from most of the other courses in the area where I typically just drive as far as I can. it's a lot of fun to play. I need to do it more often.

A lot of blind pin placements. blue/red markers under the signs indicate pin location.

Most baskets have bricks with arrows on them indicating the direction of the next tee.

Water is in play on a few holes especially the very tricky hole 10.
Cons: No benches.
Tee signs are not particularly accurate. It seems as if they were drawn from the designed course and not the course that is actually there. Since a lot of the baskets aren't visible from the tee, this was a little annoying. It would be great if someone could update them. They're not horrible just not really accurate enough.

Didn't see a water fountain.
Other Thoughts: The short tees are really short (several of them are under 100 feet). This would be a great course to take beginners and children. The short tees are so short I have to assume it was designed with this in mind, and that makes it unique for the area.

The pond on 17 is a lot deeper than it looks, so watch out for the huge overhanging tree on the left.
