Pros: This course is very close to where I live so I use the course to practice 3 times a week. I try to go on the windy days because there are almost no obstacles or elevation changes. When some of the trees reach maturity the course will be better for the tune up days. The city mows the course really nicely about once a week and it makes the fairway defined.
Cons: There are no tee signs and so the pads are grass marked by paver stones in the ground. As of 10/01/2016 or some time at that point, the first hole was vandalized and is lying on the ground. It has been brought to the attention of the city and I haven't heard when or if they are going to replace it. Hole # 5 is just past the concrete walking train on some elevation that I just play to. Add in some ob for difficulty.
Other Thoughts: If I didn't live so close to this course I probably wouldn't take time out of my day to go play here. For beginners or families that want to get their feet wet in disc golf this course would be good.

Could be a good beginners' course
Pros: No problems finding discs due to the lack of brush and grass mowed reasonably. 10/10
There is quite a bit of elevation, which I wasn't expecting going in based on what I had seen of Eudora on the drive between Lawrence and Olathe. The elevation was also used pretty well, with a variety of different slopes. 8/10
Grass was pretty short and the course was pretty short so even though there were no benches comfort was not a problem. No water or restrooms that I've noticed. 6/10
There are not many obstacles on this course, but the ones it has are used decently. Most holes have a couple of trees that could come into play, but there are no major or memorable obstacles. 5/10
Cons: The biggest problem is navigation between holes. There are spray painted markers for the tees that I found on 7 holes but they weren't very visible. No map available at the park. Baskets now have hole numbers on them. If I hadn't found the map on this site on my phone it would have been nearly impossible to determine which hole was which. 1/10
No alternate hole positions, pretty much by necessity since there is no room for them 0/10
Although most of the baskets can be seen from the start, you pretty much just have to guess on where the tees are and which of the baskets in view you're throwing to. 1/10
All of the holes are pretty open, there are lots of small newly planted trees that could be more of a factor down the road. A couple of baskets are guarded by trees but overall there's not much variety of openness. 2/10
Because of how open it is, there aren't a variety of shot paths forced. 2/10
This course is pretty easy, and won't give experienced players much of a challenge unless they just want practice with midrange shots. 3/10
Grass was mowed, but not only were tee signs not present, tees were absent altogether. There was also no map present to show course layout. Overall maintenance 3/10
Baskets are new and in good condition, but the lack of tees brings Condition of baskets and tees to a 3/10 overall
Most holes are pretty straightforward and don't require much decisionmaking. The first and last holes are exceptions, but it's still 3/10
There is not much variety in the lengths of the holes, Many of them play do play different lengths since some are uphill and some are downhill and some are through rolling hills though so it's not too noticeable. 4/10
Other Thoughts: This course is worth playing if you are close, but for only nine holes it's probably not worth a long drive. This course could be good for beginners assuming that tees of some kind are added. If the course gets more people playing there could be an issue with how close together the baskets are. After the trees have grown this course could get more interesting. Plus, more advanced players could use it to practice and just make up different holes.
