Pros: Most of you players will write the Peace Community Park course off as a complete and utter waste of time. To start with the longest hole is only about 125'. It's just a 9 hole course. There are no tee signs. The tee pads are terrible. Only the baskets are even close to be being acceptable equipment and # 5 basket catcher part has been broken off and lying sadly on the ground. There is very little in the way of challenge. Yes, all of this is true. So if you aren't interested in bagging a course just just to add another one to your DGCR played list, then drive by Peace Park and find the more challenging courses locally.

BUT, if you have a son/daughter/friend who you are planning on introducing to disc golf, then this just might be the right course. It's not the greatest course for newbies I've ever played, but it's amongst them. Other than one fence, there's almost no chance for losing a disc. It's easy to find. Parking is not a problem.

The baskets are Discatchers with the yellow band and a small number. Other than the # 5, they are in good shape. The tee boxes do have the hole number on them.

Signature hole? Picking a signature here is like selecting the prettiest mountain in Kansas. Hard to pick but I'm going with # 8. It's about 80' but you have to hyser around a tree.
Cons: The course does have it's warts.

Elementary school distances ranging from 67' to 150'.

Tee boxes are little 3' x 6' boxes and some are lacking in fill material. The hole number is indicated on the tee box.

# 5 basket catcher has been broken away from the inner post.

A couple holes are wide open and short.

The wind was blowing hard this morning. (Probably shouldn't count as a con.)
Other Thoughts: If you leave here without an Ace, you are;

1. Probably a beginner.
2. Not a very good player.
3. Disappointed.

But, for the serious course bagger, this is an extremely easy 20 minute bag.

Pros: (0.934 Rating) A family friendly beginner course.
- FORGIVENESS - The odds of losing a disc due to an errant shot is near impossible. you'd have to forget to pick up to lose one here.
- MAINTENANCE - The grounds appear to be constantly mowed, trimmed and manicured. I don't recall seeing any trash on my visit.
- QUICK PLAY - A single could easily complete a full 9 in under 20 minutes. Groups of 4 probably would finish in under 45 minutes.
- ACEABILITY - All of the holes are highly aceable. Great opportunity for a junior to get an ace
- GROW THE SPORT - No doubt will this course aid in growing the sport by offering easy access to learn the game at a beginner friendly course.
- CHAINS - The baskets are in great shape. Unfortunately a typical comment when you run out of good things to say about a course.
Cons: Course only works for beginners and family
- BASKET AND TEE SEPERATION - There are numerous occurrences where the basket and next tee are perilously close. Several times they are separated by less than 30 feet.
- UNIQUENESS - The holes themselves in terms variety are well below average. To seasoned players, they are all short and straight ace runs. A couple holes do use the trees to guard from an angle but really only number 5 and 8 needs to be a bender.
- CHARACTER - Course is just baskets and tees. No map and hole signage. Tees do have a hole number on a wood tee marking. Also no seating at holes (not that you'd need it ) but there is one picnic table.
- SPACING - Well below average, Several of the fairways feel partially shared. Discs will constantly end in other fairways. In addition, if the course were full of players, you would be wise to keep your head up and aware of other groups teeing off.
- DIFFICULTY - Way too short for everyone but beginners and rec players. Many seasoned players will come away dissatisfied if they don't shoot 9 down.
Other Thoughts: There is really no reason to check this course out unless you are nearby to practice putts, taking young kids out, or to introduce the game to someone who's never played. Experienced player should check out G.T. Bray just down the road instead of this one.

Pros: Small footprint niner with a collection of holes between 70 and 150 feet. It's pretty much open with scattered trees marking a few points will shots will need a little shape, including one large tree directly in front of the basket which gives players a choice of route around it. It's a great beginner course, with a wide open space in which a disc can't be lost and frustration will be minimal. New players will be reaching the basket in one throw in minimal time which is perfect for a course at a school which should and does target young ones as the intended audience. For what it is, there is solid variety here and it might even be worth checking it out as a warm up or if you love ace runs. Easy to navigate, easy to play.
Cons: I mean, don't come here looking for a challenge you know you won't find and you won't be disappointed.

 Good "Backyard" Course

Pros: -Great atmosphere on the course. Palm trees abound in this fenced in park.
-Plenty of ace runs and easily birdied holes. This is a great place to introduce new players or to gain some confidence.
-Clearly defined Teepads which are composed of dirt and sea shells.
-Innova DISCatchers in good shape.
-Despite being so short, this course offers some shot variety (Hyzer vs. Anhyzer). Most baskets are guarded.
-Low lying land creates a "sand trap" effect that adds a little bit of difficulty to otherwise simple holes.
Cons: -VERY Short. Holes are easily reached/over thrown with a putter. Any experienced player would be bored here. The holes are just way too easy.
-Neighborhood around can be a little sketchy. We didn't run into any problems, but could see the potential.
-Course is only open select hours.
Other Thoughts: This is a very short beginner/novice level course nestled between two churches in a fenced-in park. It's a course that plays very quick (I did two rounds in 20 minutes) and is incredibly easy. This course is good for who it was designed for (young children) and is great for more experienced players to work on putting/upshots. Safari golf is a good way to add some intrigue to an otherwise bland course.

Pros: This course would be excellent for beginners, first timers, and kids. Holes are short enough that even first timers would have many looks at deuce. There is a little bit of variety in length despite all holes are short.
*Tee boxes are numbered and course has nice DisCatchers.
*There are several benches on this course and a nice canopy of trees for most of the holes.
*There is a nice playground area for kids nearby.
*Can play several rounds in a short amount of time.
*Navigation is fairly simple.
Cons: There is really no challenge here for any experienced players. You can easily deuce every hole with a putter.
Course is crammed into a small area, seems like it could be layed out a little differently to make a few holes longer.
Other Thoughts: The best thing about this course is that it is beginner friendly with short holes. I'd say the shortest hole was about 70' at most and the longest was maybe 140'. It's a good course if you want to work on your short game or jump putts. it's a great course for beginners and first timers. If you're looking to rack up your course count, you can be in and out in 10 minutes. Or you can stick around and throw for aces all day if that's your thing.

 Short On Length, Long On Fun!

Pros: Makes good use of the trees available.

Has nice Innova baskets that are clearly marked with hole #.

Has tee box's filled with crushed shell. This isn't an issue though, as run-ups are not needed, because of the shortness of this course. My wife and 14 year old (both only occasional players) liked the short holes, and we had a fun round here, but seasoned players will only need to bring a putter, and maybe a mid. The tees are marked with #s on the frame.

Great course for an Ace Race event.

The course was litter free and well maintained. It may be a pitch-n-putt, but they take it seriously and take good care of it.

It is surrounded by churches and seems to be in a good area.
Cons: I think this is the shortest length course that I have ever played, shorter even than Pinebrook, and with fewer obstacles. It is ridiculously short! Maybe a con, if you like more of a challenge, or like to air them out.

Some of the tee boxes need to be filled and leveled. Not too big a deal though, as run-ups are not needed, and you can throw from the grass next to the tees if necessary.

It can be windy, and even though the course is in an urban area, there were mosquitos.
Other Thoughts: A fun little rec/beginner course that makes the best out of the available terrain.

I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course again, but if in the area, and can't travel to some of the better courses nearby, a fun round can be had here.

  A Nice Place to Introduce New Players to Disc Golf

Pros: Great place to learn the game, I've taken a few friends out there for their first experience with Disc Golf
Location to where I live, I live less than a 10 minute bike ride away, 3 minutes by car.
Great for practicing your short game.
Great to grab a quick came if you have a few free time, I'll go out there after work and have just enough time for a game before the sun sets.
Cons: It is really short. I'd be surprised if the longest hole was over 100 ft away
Some of the holes run close to fences with barbed wire, a buddy lost one of my discs over the fence, but it was his first game.
Other Thoughts: My buddies and I have started using the tees and aiming at different baskets than those dedicated for the hole just to add extra length and variety.

Pros: 1) Fun course to practice mid-ranges and putters. I only used a few discs and that was ok on this course (Spider, Mako, Stingray, Gator and my Pro Rhyno Putter) because it was designed as a beginner course.

2) Nice discatcher baskets installed properly. Locks and valve boxes used . . . seems above and beyond since there are no alternate positions and no room for alternate positions too.

3) Framed teeboxes made out of crushed sea-shells. This stuff works well but only because it is such a short course . . . there is no need for a runup on any single hole. Just plant in the front of the box and make your ace run. The holes timbers used to frame the box also has a door number attached so at least you know which tee to use in that area where three tees sortof converge.

4) Surprising nice variety of shots needed here. Sure they are all short but there are some straight shots, mostly hyzers, but even a hole or two that can handle an anhyzer line. Pick your favorite shot on a couple of the holes with options.

5) Quick play . . . 10 rounds in 90 minutes for me. I even set my bag down after a few rounds and just carried my 5 discs with me.

6) The course seems to be in nice condition . . . the turf is healthy and thick and the trees are in good shape.

7) They even have benches for guys like me who play 10 rounds in a day . . .I don't think I sat down once I just kept playing but I did set my bag down on the bench making it easier to pick up and put down . . . before I realized I didn't really need to carry my 22 discs . . . I only needed 5.
Cons: 1) Goofy transition between hole 5 and 6 as it is quite a bit of backtracking . . .I know . . . like 100' out of the way! 

2) A couple of the tees had gotten slightly rutted out from rain washing the shells around and whatever use they get. I wonder if I put more rounds on that course than it had seen in a while.

3) Not really challenging at all . . . fun to throw but it does not challenge you. I would honestly call these holes all Par 2's so in essence I shot a +10 for 90 holes)

4) Flat . . .
Other Thoughts: I used it as a way to vent after my $600 car repair and needing to sit in a dealership for 5 hours rather than playing like 3 new courses. So when I got out of the dealership I headed right here and played 10 rounds. I played some rounds as ace-runs and some rounds I tried to birdie everything. I ended up with an average of (-8) with 2 perfect (-9) rounds and 2 rounds of (-7) and the rest were (-8). I did not get a single ace which really shocked me . . . perhaps because I was trying to get them and that affecting my throwing technique. I played 10 rounds between about 5:30 and 7:00 when it was nearly dark and I was determined to get an ace and beat my most holes played in a day . . . that way the car repair didn't ruin the day. I also figured if I played a lot of holes the cost per hole on the day went way down . . . $600/162 holes is an expensive pay to play. Not much more needs to be said about this hole other than it accomplishes what it was designed for. It exposes people to the game, creates a nice place for the community to enjoy the game, allows locals to practice their putting and mid-range games, and it allows course whores who just paid $600 for a car repair to vent and play 10 rounds. It also will be the first ace for many people I bet . . .with holes around 100' many shots are bound to go in . . . just none of my 90 drives.

 Fun for an ace race / long putt practice

Pros: Small numbered shell tee pads on each hole.
Benches on several holes
Very large playground on site for the kids while you play.
Cons: All holes are basically long putts, nothing seemed over 120 feet.
Course is a developmental / children's course at best. It is a cute entertaining set up, but it will not provide a verteran disc golfer with anything except a place to pad their ace numbers or practice long putts on a flat semi-open course.
Other Thoughts: Course is at the Peace Community Park, directly behind the Peace Lutheran Church. It is open during non-school hours from dusk til dawn.

Course set up is very similar to the nearby Sun-N-Fun RV resort. Play them both back to back and end up with a score under 40 for 18 holes. If you want to play another local quick 9 holer, Pineview is a similar short 9 not too far south.

ESTIMATED hole breakdown
50-70 feet = 3
70-90 feet = 3
90-120 feet = 2
Over 120 feet= 1
