Improved, but still a work in progress (that needs a lot of work)
Pros: Okay mixed level course with two tee locations (currently marked by color coded signposts). Holes are decent length. Good easily visible orange DGA baskets. Some of the holes use whatever foliage is there to make short but challenging holes. Water carry shots on 1, 17 and 18 add some spice to a rather bland and mostly open layout. Rec players will like the short layout. Advanced players will find the longer one manageable. The short wooded hole on 7 is cool and unique.
Cons: Some holes here, particularly most of them between 8 and 16 are just flipping boring. A number of other holes are still too snuggied up to the walking paths that pretty much form the spine of this greenbelt park. Path wasn't heavily used, but I had to wait a few minutes on Hole 13 for two unsupervised girls piddling around on their bikes right in the line of fire. Drainage ditch on 8-13 will be muddy during rainy season. Spherical 'nickels' atop the baskets are hard to read from afar. Needs signage and pads.
Other Thoughts: I went here on a beautiful evening and there was nobody playing DG here. I'm honestly not a fan of greenbelt courses like this, and the fact that such parks are often used for trails is why. A few of the new holes off the path are a welcome change (although it looks like the path could extend into this area eventually).
This course was originally a nine hole course that had some ridiculous 800' holes intertwined like a 'T' along the path, often with hidden basket a mile away in a random plot of trees. The shortening of the holes has alleviated that madness, and the powers that be here have planted some trees to improve the boring open shots. Unfortunately, they only grow so fast.
Better than the course it replaced, but not in the caliber of other Wichita area courses like Oak and Herman Hill. In fact, I enjoy the nine holer at Riggs Park just a mile from here better. But one you can cross off your list if you're passing through.
