Pros: Pros: Good baskets and tee pads, nice mix of shot types, pro level 18 hole course,
Cons: Some of the layout is a little goofy, I've only played once but I was glad I was with people who knew where they were going.
Other Thoughts: Based on what I was hearing about this course and it's own self righteous description as the "country club of disc golf" I had high expectations, overall this is just you're average 18 hole course that has enough long shots and challenging hole layouts to be considered a "pro" course, I guess to me it didn't really live up to the hype but it is a solid course overall

Pros: This is a fun course with lots of obstacles for players. Some open holes with some back through the challenging woods. Make sure to keep an eye on the disc so you do not loose them. Must play course.
Cons: Its Iowa, so in the winter time like most Mid-west states its a tough one to play.
Other Thoughts: Definitely put it on the must do list.

Pros: Challening course with all types of shots required, very good amenities, pop machines on site, well groomed, exellent mix of wooded and "park setting" holes.
Cons: Thick brush off the fairways, closes early in fall and opens late in spring.
Other Thoughts: It's a "must play" during a visit to Des Moines.

Pros: Variety of shots, multiple pins, elevation changes, lots of lefty dream holes--but not too many to deter our righty buds from disliking this gem.
Cons: Park gate closes during winter months. You can still park at the gate and walk into the park, (maybe 1/4 mile) best to start on hole 8, the first hole you'll see. walking in.
Other Thoughts: This is a must play if you're traveling through Iowa.
