Gave me hope for Scott City
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: ~ Great course for moderately experienced players, poses a challenge
~ Variety of open, hills, trees, creeks, ponds, and ravines
~ Great signage at every tee
~ Park flows from hole to hole, no walk is too far from last hole, yet not claustrophobic
~ Practice basket placed near hole one for warm up
~ Bathrooms throughout park
~ If you needed to you could start from many other parking locations to avoid others on the course, but there is more so disc golf specific parking at hole 1
~ Full course map located at pavilion near hole 1
~ Central location in town, or easy access from Nash Rd. for players coming from out of town via I-55
~ Park is clean and well maintained
~ Clear out of bounds usage
~ Impressive that Scott City provided such a fine course
~ Lots of walking, good place to stretch the legs
~ Hole 18, they provided a second tee for beginners to not risk throwing discs over the pond
~ Fair par levels
Cons: ~ The wooded spots are not beginner friendly, then again, what dense wooded area is?
~ If you throw into the ravine on 16, it is hard to navigate to find your disc
~ Directional signs from Main St and Nash Rd would be nice, you almost have to be local to find the park, you can easily get lost in the neighborhood between Main and the park
Other Thoughts: ~ Tied with Litz Park for the best course in the Cape area (Cape County, Capaha, Scott City, Litz) in my honest opinion
~ Easily worthy of a local tournament

Solid City Park Course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Typical city park course in a more scenic setting. Great use of the elevation and the wooded area on the back 9...
Solid concrete tee pads and great signage.
Several memorable holes:
#4 Short downhill with a mando between two trees about 10 ft wide.
#14 Short dog leg to a very ace-able hole.... but with a huge cliff behind it if you miss (No, we didn't know that at the time!)
#16 through a ravine with a really cool wooden bridge to the basket.
Front nine was a typical city park course with mature trees and elevation use, while the back nine with the wooded areas made the course interesting!!
Cons: None, really....
I do think that the course was redesigned from the map... #12- 14 look a bit different and we had to hunt for #12, but that's more a site issue than a course issue...
Other Thoughts: This was course #1 of a 5 course road trip for me and my 17 y/o... Fortunately/ unfortunately it was the best course of the 5 in my opinion, making the rest of the day just so-so!!

Pros: Easy to navigate. All concrete tee pads. Well maintained wooded holes. Nice mix of up and down hill shots. Not to big and spread out so it's easy to get in a quick round.
Cons: Could use more trash cans spread out on the course. I hate seeing people who just leave trash by the tee sings and pads.

Pros: Concrete tee pads
easy to navigate
good use of elevation changes
pleasant mix of different hole types
the hole 18 throw over water is reasonable
Cons: 2015 UPDATE removes this 2013 con: "no course signs (but tee pads have #'s spray painted on)"
2015 UPDATE removes this 2013 con: "the wooded holes 13, 14, 16 & 17 are still rough"
2015 UPDATE modifies this 2013 con: "hole 16 has a thorn filled ravine midway between the teebox and basket that is very unpleasant."
2015 UPDATE modifies this 2013 con: "A drop zone for those who choose not to throw over water does not exist"
Other Thoughts: The cons are all a little nit picky, as this course becomes completed many of the cons will go away. This is a fun course - I will play it again.
2015 UPDATE from Fatty McButterpants: " I just wanted to update you on the Scott City, MO disc golf course. We have had complete hole signage for a while now, and we work have worked hard to get the woods cleared of stumps and debris. Given the nature of the woods holes, there will always be some deadfall, but it is much improved and more manicured than last you played. Long-term, we are going to try and get grass growing in those areas to help with the footing issues we have. They are currently installing a bridge over hole 16. The ravine comes into play with an errant throw, but it looks much nicer and there is a more direct walking-route to the basket now. We have also installed an alternate pad on hole 18 that diminishes the distance needed to clear the water hazard. I have also installed 5 alternate basket locations that will increase the difficulty on some of the holes. "
Thank you Fatty for addressing the cons. Without the cons the score should adjust upward.

Another solid city park style course goes up in the heartland
Pros: 1. easy to find (take first right by a pavillion and tennis courts/sand volleyball before you get to the actual main park entrance. There is a sign that says disc golf course opening fall 2013)
2. Concrete tee pads
3. Nice park
4. short grass everywhere
5. Not many places to lose discs
6. chances to air some throws out but yet still technical in certain spots.
7. Disccatcher baskets
Cons: 1. No signs for holes yet
2. Not totally finished
3. Not a ton of shade
4. A little too wide open but not bad
4. Not very many signature holes
5. Pretty standard non unique setup
Other Thoughts: Great to see another course go up in the area. It's only a 10 to 15 minute drive from Cape county north which makes it easy to get in two 18 hole courses in one day if your not from the area. This is a pretty standard city park style course although it will eventually have a total of three wooded holes it looks like. 18 is a throw over a pond which is pretty cool because its short enough where you shouldnt throw in the pond. Chance to ace at a blind basket down the hill on the other side of the pond.
