Pros: +Course is set in a nice park that plays around a pond, a park road thats OB, and in the woods with a creek running through.

+Elevation changes are present in the woods where the creek has created a valley which is played around. (4,5,6,10,11,12,14,15) However nothing too big, it does add a nice element and the challenge of sloped greens.

+The pond that is in play at holes 1,2,3,17 isn't that challenging to get around but it adds a little mental challenge and a nice scenic + to the park.

+Nice variety of hole shots. Straight, big hyzers, touch shots, anhyzers, rollers, flicks. Driver, mid, putter. Yes basically everything.

+Had a few par 4's that required some good upshots. Highlights were hole 6 which is a strong uphill L-R off the tee then another L-R upshot slightly downhill back into the woods. #14 was a RHBH hyzer into the fairway, then a big downhill L-R to get to the tucked in basket with the creek just behind.

+Creek is big enough to hold water and create an hazard, but not to big to swallow your disc.

+Baskets in good condition
+Two sets of tees that offered different shots
+Nice tee signs on both tee areas.
+Navigation wasn't a problem because of helpfull signs. I brought a map but didn't need it.

+Had a "fun" challenge level. Enough to make you come back but no "round breaker" holes that punish bad shots.

+Front and back 9 make a loop to parking lot
Cons: -Amenities weren't the best. Natural tee pads that could get sloppy with rain. One bridge to cross the creek. No benches, no trashcans close.

-Poisen Ivy. Its present. Pretty bad in the woods. I would suggest long pants/socks.

-I would have liked to see a little more challenge from the pond. Personal yes but the pond could have added more.

Other Thoughts: >This is a fun and enjoyable course. Has a good amount of variety and some highlight holes.

>Not the toughest course in the area. Red tees are beginner friendly and blue offers some more challenge.

>Didn't have a big wow factor. 6 and 14 were my favorite holes, but nothing else really stood out. This is what kept my rating back.

>So to wrap it up, I would say if your looking for a fun easy going round of DG this is a great place. For more challenge I would recommend other STL area courses like Jefferson Barracks, Carrolton, Endicott, or Souix Passage.

Pros: Good markers to let you know where to go next
Not crowded
Cons: "Park" is closed during the late fall winter months, which means you have to park outside the gates and walk in
Also, during this time, the town has its "Winter Wonderland" display which means lots of obstecles which is interesting
Some holes are too close to water, so if your an ametuer I would watch out for these espicially hole 17 and hole 2 on a windy day
Other Thoughts: Lots of walking. Great scenery. Allo 18 holes are completed and are very fun to play. So happy that there is one in Lebanon and close to home for me.
