Pros: relatively easy course to follow with fun shots and multiple tee pads on most holes. not very crouded on the day and time that i went.. weekday around 11am.
Cons: there were a couple of long walks between basket and tee but i was easy to see which direction to head

Pros: Great variety - terrain, ease, shots needed, etc. Baskets are moved fairly often over the summer. Course is well marked and easy to follow. Pretty well maintained.
Cons: Can be busy at times. May spend time looking for discs in the creek. Some holes are definitely over-parred. One hole is missing a sign and another is scratched over.
Other Thoughts: The first course I ever played and the one I continue to come back to. I play it as often as I am around my hometown and have enjoyed the variety found in this course. I've never participated, but it seems the course regularly has tournaments and such put up by the DG club. Most who play here are quite friendly and patient. I'll repeat, pot smokers frequent the park though at least I've never had them bother me.

Pros: Lots of elevation change, and a very pretty well taken care of park. I thought most of the holes were wide open, which at the time I was not used to....but it was nice.
Cons: Almost too wide open in areas. Close to center city, lots of traffic and people in the park
Other Thoughts: enjoyed playing here

Pros: From a local I have played at this park many times and first learned the game here. This is a great course where am and pros can frolf at with different tee-off pads that are not just further back but actually more complicated. This courses holes require players to be able to shoot at a hole when they cannot see it (hole 3 and hole 9). One of the great things about this course is they change the hole locations frequently and the other people are very friendly with a couple A-holes in between.
Cons: Some days are much crowded than others but if you get there in the morning to noon you should be good (9-12).
Other Thoughts: Good parking, clean park (ravine is dirtier but not terrible and doesn't stink), not much wildlife (I saw a beaver before but thats about it) and lots of pot heads, so not a course to bring kids to. But for sure the BEST park in Nebraska.

Pros: Seymour has a nice variety of elevation changes throughout the course, with plenty of different hole types, which utilize all aspects of the game, from long straight drives to hyzer/annhyzer drives, even a hole that requires you to tomahawk over trees in a ravine (hole 3). The second set of tees provide an additional challenge. There are also a number of holes that require you to drive through clusters of trees.
Cons: The only things i have against this course is that it is very crowded, when i played there last, i had to wait for at least two groups to tee off for every hole that i played. Also, the course is rather easy for more advanced players, but good practice and a fun course nonetheless.
Other Thoughts: All in all, Seymour is one of the better courses that i have played at in Nebraska. I had a great time and never got frustrated with the course. Definitely worth playing a round.

 Quality Course

Pros: Good mix of trees and open space with some elevation changes. Overall a nice course and I would play it if I were in the area again (but would not choose to play Sat afternoon to avoid the rush)
Cons: Way too crowded. No maps, had to ask for help a couple times, and let other groups play through while figuring out where to throw next. The dual pads/baskets is a good idea, but made it quite confusing for a first-timer. Could be better marked. Pars are inflated, I agree with others that most, if not all, are par 3. Sounds like I have a lot of "cons", but really, it is a fine course; could just use a couple simple tweaks.
Other Thoughts: My wife and I tried to fit this into an already busy day so did not play all the holes, but found hole #3 nice. She didn't want to risk it, but I liked having to tomahawk a hole.

Pros: The pin positions are changed every couple weeks, giving the course a lot more variety than most courses have. Some of the holes (like #4) are completely different depending on the position. The course flows naturally, and you won't need a map to navigate. There are two sets of concrete tees per hole. For some of the B tees, they're just farther back or off to the side (1, 6, 8, 9, 12, 17) and others are entirely different approaches (3, 4, 5 a few others). The elevation changes aren't huge, but somehow the course makes great use of them. Every uphill shot requires you to also throw under a lot of tree branches to get a decent second shot. In general, this is a course that will punish your shot if you throw nose-up (as any good course should). The third hole has a unique tee shot over a grove of trees along a creek that forces you to throw either a hammer or an anhyzer. There are a couple grip-and-rip holes (#7, 10, 11). Despite the challenges, this is a pretty good place for beginners to learn the game. There is no frustrating rough, no itchy undergrowth, and it would be pretty difficult to lose a disc here.
Cons: This is the most crowded course I've played. In the summer, you will find at least one group on every hole unless you're coming on a weekday morning (I went on a Friday at 9am recently, and it was empty). The lack of etiquette can be frustrating. I've had discs land at my feet on a 250-foot hole while I was putting because someone decided to tee off a little early. I guess that is part of the growing pains of disc golf. At least the course is popular.

The pars on the signs are slightly arbitrary and definitely too high (a 275-foot par 4?). Pretty much every hole would be a par 3. The signs are old, graffiti-covered, and not very helpful anyway (it's not clear what the distances refer to since there are at least three pin positions used on many of the holes, and they only list distances to two positions). Due to all the traffic, the grass is worn away around all the tees and basket positions, so the place gets awfully muddy after a rain.
Other Thoughts: This is the best course in the Omaha area in the winter (the only one that is consistently playable), and in the fall and early spring it's not as crowded as the summer. If you want to introduce some players to the game and don't mind a leisurely pace, come to Seymour. If you are accustomed to a bit more solitude and peace, this might not be the course for you. Seymour shows what a strong disc golf community has sprung up in Omaha and demonstrates the need for several more courses. Fortunately Cunningham is open again and Hummel Park will hopefully open soon.

Pros: This is set in a nice park with lots of ace runs. They seem to have par 4's and a par 5, but all can be 3's. The 3rd hole is a blind shot over a laurel, which was kind of fun. There were some slight elevation changes going on throughout the 18 holes. The trees that are there seem to be placed well. The signs had all the possible yardages, but no maps. You can see just about every pin from the tee and most of the tees from the previous pin. I only had to ask for help a couple of times. All the tees had nice length cement pads. The do have a message board and had posted a night-glow tourney there. I do doubt you could lose a disc on this course.
Cons: This is not a challenging course and has vedry few if any technical throws needed. 2 or 3 discs are all you really need to play this course. Many of the holes are right next to each other, going back and forth, up and down the hills. It is very crowded and on Sunday night just before dark, I waited on many holes. Most people behind me probably did not even finish. There were only a few trashcans, and no sign of a restroom.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was just OK with me. I would not say this was a fun course, but it was worth playing. It is a great beginner course without a doubt. The people were friendly and seem to really like their park. There was great parking too, I should add.

Pros: Beautiful course, some interesting shots such as number 3 over the trees in the ravine.
Cons: Par ratings are too high. Rarely over 400 feet, yet some are "Par 5" on the sign.
Other Thoughts: The multiple concrete tees were a little confusing at first, just look for the ones with the signs next to them to see which ones are in use, or just follow everyone else.

Pros: An absolutely great course! The fairways are just wide enough for beginners to be in great shape even on an off day. The hole variety from short to long, straights, left & right was awesome. It felt like someone took some care in the layout of this course. What was probably the best aspect of the course was its wooded setting with tree-lined fairways, yet it wasn't too intimidating.
Cons: VERY CROWDED! Had ot wait 20 mintues to play off first tee. Lots of people complaining about it too! But when your from Kansas City and this is how you're ending a business trip with your son, the wait was more than worth it.

Hole #3 bites! Maybe it's just because I have yet to master an up and over shot to clear 30' of trees that are only 50' in front of you. Definately not for the novice player. Saw 4 groups in two rounds searching for discs in the creek.
Other Thoughts: Get another course built!
