Pros: Nice back 9 with a little more variety than the front 9. Great hole 18!
Cons: Kind of a boring front 9, not a lot of trees involved.
Other Thoughts: Overrated compared to other great courses in KS. Awesome last hole though.

 Throw ‘em Hard & Put ‘em Away Wet

Pros: This course is mostly wide-open, with a few trees, some water, and it has some slight elevation. This well maintained park has some nice park benches near many of the nice concrete tees. Each of these tees have a small 2-foot cement post with the hole number on it. The baskets are in pretty good shape. Navigation here was fairly simple as there are arrows below each basket pointing to the next tee. There are a few holes where water behind a basket, a protected pin, or tree blocking the obvious path can make things interesting, but this is not as common as the wide-open fairway. The 18th hole is a fun shot over a small cove. You can go for the basket that carries over lots of water or take a narrower shot just get to the other side. Either way, if you are short, you just put your disc away wet.
Cons: If you heard rumors that there was 2 courses hear like I did, it is not true. According to the people at the park, this is the only course in this park. There is not much of a challenge here and I found that to be a disappointment. There weren't any actual tee signs here with any kind of hole information. There were hardly any trashcans and no signs of a bathroom close by.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was just OK for me. I was kind of anticipating the holes that were by the water or sunk back into the bushes or having water to throw over so much, that most of the course turned out to be kind of a let down. It was sad that all the challenging holes were right at the end of the journey instead of being spread out more during the round. It is still a very nice park and a clean place to play.
