Pros: Good length holes with some elevation increasing difficulty
Holes are set up with trees as obstacles making lines interesting without being frustrating
Cons: Poor baskets even if they are newer.
No shorter holes for ace shots
Other Thoughts: To get the length on many of them, the holes have many switch backs with fairways right next to each other, possibly causing issues with multiple parties playing at once. It's worth playing if you're passing through.

 Pretty decent

Pros: Decent length
Good use of trees
Navigates easy enough without map
Clean restrooms
Camping on site
Trash cans on tee signs
Cons: Tee box is a single buried landscape timber.
Just doesn't grab you as, 'I have to play this again'.
Other Thoughts: Glad I played it once. If you are a course seeker looking to boost your courses played, it is worth getting this one.

If you are looking for 'gotta play' courses, this isn't it.

Giving this a 2.5 based on my experience of 106 courses played in 16 states.

  Pretty good course.

Pros: The course is great. Its deceptively long, almost no elevation change, but where there is its used wisely. Free to play, new baskets.
Cons: The forest on the side of the course are pretty dense, can make finding a frisbee infuriating. No concrete drive pads.
Other Thoughts: Probably the best course i've played in Iowa. Is deceptively difficult.

Pros: - Surprisingly long...a good mix of hole lengths and good use of trees.
- Easy to play/navigate.
Cons: - I thought a few of the fairways are a little too close together.
- Parts of the course seem as though they might be very low and stay wet at multiple times throughout the year. (?)
Other Thoughts: This is a course I wish I could play again under good playing conditions (dry ground, light/no wind). Very good for the land they had to work with, and a lot of fun for the local players to frequent, I'm sure.

Pros: Unexpectedly fun 9 hole course in a small Iowa town. The designer(s) did a good job with the land they were given to use. A good mix of short and long holes with plenty of mature trees to navigate around. You will need just about every shot in your bag to pick up those birdies. Not too much elevation change to be found, but the little elevation the park does have is used very well. Navigation is not an issue as this course just flows in a clockwise circle for the most part.
Cons: No multiple tee or pin placements. Tee signs were incomplete and did not have par and distances listed. The course is located in a small RV campground so campers could be an issue if the campground gets busy, although every time I have driven past it there was no one in sight. The baskets are new but not that great. They also wobble a little bit near the base.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth stopping by for a round or two if you are in the area or passing through.

 Surprisingly Long

Pros: -Very long for city park, good challenge there
-Trees are a factor without being too hard. A few shots you have to throw right or left or keep it low. a good variety.
-Tees are marked by wooden numbered post and wood on the ground
-Good parking lot, bathroom, camping at the same park
-Not a big town so you are likely going to have the park to yourself
-Nice new disc nation baskets
-Very good flow and short walking distance between basket and tee. Always knew which basket I was throwing at without signage
-A few holes had a little elevation, I was surprised.
-Probably won't lose a disc here but the woods that border part of the park are pretty thick
Cons: -Is in a multi use city park so watch out for others
-Tees are natural.
-No signage at the start of course or on tees
Other Thoughts: I stumbled upon this course while looking for other courses. It was a pleasant surprise. It looks to be very new and not used much yet. The distance and trees will provide a reasonable challenge for most players. They used this land very well for disc golf. It is not ideal by any means but they did a great job. I would recommend a stop here for a fairly quick but challenging round. Maybe in the future they will put up signage and cement tees to further improve this course.
