Great beginner course and training grounds
Pros: This is one of the most forgiving courses I've played. It's perfect for beginners to develop their skills (speaking from experience in doing just that). It is easy to find the next hole, plays quick, and is rarely crowded. Long and short holes.
Cons: As I soon found out, this course can give beginners a false sense of ability in that your disc can take just about any line and will wind up looking like a fair shot. There are no trees around to remind you that you're not throwing straight.
Other Thoughts: I can hit this course with a friend and be back in the car in 35 minutes. It's great for getting that "quick 9" in.

Pros: This course is great if you are passing by or live near by and have an itch to get out and throw the plastic. It plays really quick, so if you are in a hurry and want to get a round in this is a great course. Some looks at ace, even for inexperienced players.
Cons: Not much difficulty here, every hole is open. most holes just straight on. No real tee boxes, once was signage, but most is ripped off now.
Other Thoughts: Would not go out of my way to play this course. But if you are in the area and want a quick 9 holes, this is the place to go.

good practice spot
Pros: learned how to play the game here.
can be a nice challenge in kansas wind
4 nice ace runs
good quick 9
Cons: no tee pads
at a school with lots of recess activities going on after class.
not a good course to go out of your way for.
Other Thoughts: every community needs a course like this to gain awareness of the sport and serve as a good practice spot for the serious player.

Pros: This course is a Great practice course. All the holes are wide open. I'm new to this game and like to practice here. I can really throw the disc and start to learn the flight patterns without worrying about hitting a tree 10 ft in front of me.
Cons: There are no launch/ tee pads. Basically there are some dirt patches you can kind of use but other than that nothing but grass.
Other Thoughts: This is really only a course you'd want to practice on. Throw some discs and learn flight patterns, and work on perfecting your drives.

Pros: This course is where I went to perfect my backhand (started out flicking only); it's great place for honing your skills as it is never crowded.
It's a good course to teach someone the game; there are no obstacles so they can focus solely on their throw.
The only other use this course has is if you want to get a superquick round in and are running out of daylight.
Cons: The other review are pretty accurate; not much to this place. Mostly open fields with some baskets.
Other Thoughts: Not worth a trip, but if it's convenient you can't complain.

Pros: Well I guess there are baskets. The best thing I can think about this course is I would have loved to have had a disc golf course at my junior high, no matter the difficulty. There are posts (they used to all have signs on them) at every dirt/grass tee pad. Lot of birdie/ace holes. Holes 8 & 9 are fairly long.
Cons: The course is only 9 holes, the "pads" are pretty dismal, the baskets are definitely in need of repair and the course is flat. Probably the worst part about the course is my +2 score.
Other Thoughts: HAPPY DISCIN'!!!

California "Wagon" Trail
Pros: This course has some longer holes and is pretty flat for those who do not like elevation. It is on a school property so be warned. Navigation is simple. If you need to practice throwing straight, this is you practice place. Finding your discs won't be a problem here either. It is certainly not a very crowded 9 holer. There are posts for signs that have the footage on them. OK, I can't be more positive than that.
Cons: Tee pads are actually dirt ruts in the ground. The baskets are looking worse for wear. Technicality is a misnomer at this course. There is no "available" restroom. There are no seating or trash cans here either. Some of the hole posts are broken.
Other Thoughts: My Fun Factor was non-existent. With so many great choices in this area, just pass this by. However if you want to finish 9 hole in under 20 minutes, you can do that! ;) It is functioning and playable,

Pros: Open and thats about it. a couple holes to throw real drives.
Cons: the tees are almost non exsistent. Holes are sunken into the ground and it horrible condition.
Other Thoughts: this is not my first choice. I only came because I had no option because of worlds. It was fun because disc golf is fun.

Pros: Well... it's at a Junior High so there's potential to introduce young people to the sport. There are baskets visible as soon as you drive onto the campus.
There's good variety of holes lengths... for more experienced players. 3<299/ 4 of 300-399/ 1 of 480/ 1 of 540
Cons: Almost everything...
-The lack of fairway diversity makes a boring round. 8 holes are straight, with one slightly curving left.
-The course is totally flat and almost completely wide open with only a stray tree here and there. It's impossible to lose a disc, though.
-Most of the holes are too long for junior high kids.
-Safety issues- The holes play around, between, and through other sports fields, so watch out if people are around on the ball fields.
-Tee signs are only tiny placards on small posts 3 ft high., and they only have the hole length.
-There are no marked teepads. You just throw from the grass near the small sign.
-Baskets are old DISCatchers and some have rusted chains. The basket on hole 9 is broken so you can't really complete the hole, so it's a disappointing way to finish a round.
-There are no amenities- no practice basket or message board, no bathroom, no score cards, maps, or trash cans.
Course Level: White (most suited for Intermediate players rated 875-925) Probably not well suited for most Junior High kids.
Course Difficulty: 4 (out of 10) There are no obstacles, so all difficulty comes from length alone.
The main reason to play here would be to rip long drives that unimpeded by any foliage. I'm afraid, though, that beginning teenagers will find it too long and more experienced players will get bored quickly.
