Pros: Variety of holes to be played ranging from short and technical shots on the first 9, to a better mixture of short and long on the second 9, to a larger open style on the back 9. There is an easy and difficult drive for every style of play. Creek running through a few of the holes makes for some hazards to be aware of. Easy access from parking lot puts you at the tees for hole 1 and 10.
Cons: Tee 19 for the back 9 can only be accessed after walking some distance or playing the middle 9 first so you can't exactly start on the back 9. I've played the course several times in the past with trash cans available but as of right now there are none so the course is starting to show litter. Also pin locations do change in the summer but seem to stay in place at any other time of the year.
Other Thoughts: Great course to cut your teeth in if you are a beginner. In the summer the course does get quite busy and there are walking paths throughout so you have to beware of walkers and runners. The designers did put some real thought to pin locations so it will be a mediocre challenge to veterans.

Pros: This course has nice long cement tee pads. The holes vary some in length. Course has nice tee signs that are mostly accurate. The course is always clean and is primarily a disc golf park.
Cons: Throwing 27 holes at this course is a bit treacherous, because so many of the holes are 400'+. It is long shot to the left, long shot to the right, long shot... etcetera. Course only requires technical skill on a few holes primarily in the front nine. Once you hit the back 18, be prepared to throw far the rest of the way. This course is a good course, but it is the lack of variety that keeps this course from being great.
Other Thoughts: If you like throwing discs far in wide open spaces over and over, this is your course. Tierra has a lot more variety if you want some more interesting holes.

Pros: Lots of holes to play. This is the largest course in the state (to my knowledge) with 27 holes. Each hole has mult. pin placements and they are changed occasionally, breaking up the redundancy of the course. There are some elevation changes, which are nice, and plenty of holes that let you "grip 'n rip". The 666' foot hole is a beast. White toe boards mark the alternate tees for each hole. The alternate tees aren't necessarily always more challenging, but do give you a different look at the hole. Pretty clean park overall.
Cons: The creek runs on the right side of the tee box on just about every hole. High traffic on the course during the summer causes waiting at many holes. This course is the oldest in the state and is showing some wear. There aren't any really wooded shots, everything is fairly open. Since it is so open and not particularly long, a pro-level golfer may get bored.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good course. It has been played a ton over the years. This is Lincoln's best (and only "other") course, so be sure to stop by if your in town. If you want golf that is more challenging or a course that steps up the fun factor, hit up the courses in Omaha or head south 30 min. to Beatrice.
