Pros: The Windermere Baptist Conference Center is located right on the famous Lake of the Ozarks. This is one of those huge Christian camps with cabins and condos for 90,000 folks and recreational opportunities all over the place. Well here at Windermere, one of those recreational ops is disc golf.

The nine hole course completes a circle around some of the camps buildings. There are no real tee pads just worn spots in the grass. The signs are simple homemade, wood ones with the information lettered with a router. The baskets are Discatchers. Holes are mostly recreational length (155-270') and challenge. It seems as though each hole has it's own little special hazard lurking about.. # 1 has water close behind. # 2 has water on the left side. # 3 has the creek and heavy bushes on the left. The # 5 basket sits in the woods. 6 is an uphill toss. 8 is tight and technical and plays over a creek. # 9 crosses over the pond.

I like # 8 as the top hole here. It has some trappings that make it challenging but on the other hand, it shouldn't be that difficult of a shot for most players.
Cons: No tee pads.

Rec length and difficulty.

Places where you might to hunt or could lose your disc.

Pond shot might be a problem here.

Sounds busy during the summer months.
Other Thoughts: I hate to disagree too much with previous reviewers but a 9 hole course with no tee pads and recreational challenges shouldn't merit a rating approaching 3.0. I'll award it a 2.0 and would increase that rating to a 2.5 if tee pads are poured.

Pros: Nice mix of open shots, water hazards, and wooded shots.
Well marked and easy to navigate with the map.
Liked the blind drive on #2
Not crowded the weekend I visited.
Cons: No tee pads, just a wooden sign to indicate where to start.
Other Thoughts: The grass hills are very dewy/slick in the mornings so be careful.
Nothing spectacular to be worth a special trip, but if you are in the area or staying at Windememre, be sure to play a round.
The final short drive over the pond was a nice ending.
Be sure to ask for a map/score sheet at the registration office.

Pros: A nice little coarse set on the lake of the ozarks at Windermere baptist camp..holes are mostly in the open with only a couple with much woods it is a very enjoyable coarse with a very scenic backdrop...a great place to take newer players but still very fun for experienced players
Cons: grass tees, could have a little more signage, when camp is in full swing there are a lot of people in area so sometimes waiting for groups of people to clear the area is necessary but its not too bad
Other Thoughts: it really is a pleasant place to go and enjoy a little disc golf kind of an easy coarse but the lake, creeks and pond keep it interesting...

Pros: Great atmosphere and campus.
Course seems fairly well kept.
Multiple water hazards (lake, creek, pond) keep things interesting.
Cons: Mostly short holes. Very easy to birdie.
A lot of traffic in the summer with camps. People are usually blocking at least one hole each time you play. Would be a great course to play when camp is not busy.
Other Thoughts: Several holes (2, 4, 5, 7) tend to favor RHBH throwers or LHFH throwers.

Lost a disc on the first hole by throwing it into the lake.
