Pros: Great variety of shots
Huge concrete tee pads
Great signage
Well maintained
Plenty of garbage cans
Alternate pin locations
Cons: Some potential to lose discs.
Other Thoughts: Apparently the pro thing to do on this course is park at the bottom of the hill, and start on hole 9, that way you can finish with 6's massive downhill shot and a couple of easy birds. Overall, one of my absolute favorite courses. Definitely worth a trip to play.

Pros: started off a little boring and flat, but turned out to be fairly extraordinary.
following the locals lead, we began on like hole 6 at the lower level parking lot. the holes by the creek are pretty boring and flat. fine, just nothing worth writing about.
there is a creek that didnt come even remotely into play for us, but apparently a great deal of people lose their discs in there.
once the course bumped across the street into the hills and trees, things got very interesting! elevation change was sublime.
there was a 300 foot hole that was only moderately downhill, but it just SLAYED all 3 of us in an impressive manner.
whats more, the top of the world shot was literally one of my all time favorite. there was maybe an 80+ foot fairway, very steep, and the basket was 525 feet down to the right. is rare for top of the world shots to have a "fairway" in my experience, which is maybe why i dont usually like them.
the locals were all very helpful, especially in pointing out how to locate hole 15-16.
Cons: 4-5 holes that were fairly flat and open were less inspiring.
was also fairly crowded, considering we were playing around 8pm, but that strikes me as a tribute to how much fun it is!
Other Thoughts: 4th of 9 courses on week long road trip. clearly, the upper midwest has some fantastic dg courses!!!

Pros: #1 Exercise that is enjoyable
- Quality baskets
- LARGE quality cement tee-pads
- They use mulch (makes it look professional and keeps it dry)
- Scenic holes
- Course layout
- Big Sioux River
- Other things going on in the park make playing more interesting
Cons: - 16-18 are tiring w/ a long walk back to the top
- Sometimes gets congested
Other Thoughts: You can't not like this course if you are a true disc golfer. Other things going on in the park such as hot-air balloons make it the place to be in itself during the summer.

Pros: Nice course in the inner-city of Sioux Falls. It provides distance & technicallity that are somewhat unique for the area....Most of the Tee Pads are marked with Distance and Location....
Cons: This course is a bit hard to navigate for a new-comer and the over-all flow is not the best. Hole 18 is hard to find, but once there, is a fun hole! The signage is significantly off on some of the holes and most signs could use some over-haul.
Other Thoughts: This course provides a very unique challenge of length, technicality & pin location that will keep you challenged....This one is one of the better courses of the greater area ( I'd also recommend Big Sioux Rec. Area of Brandon & Larson Park of Brookings.....All located near the I-29 & I-90 Crossings)... It does provide an ideal challenge (given the surrounding area)...If you are near the Sioux Falls area, it is worth a stop....

Pros: Very good intermediate skill level course in a well maintained park with good variety in terms of elevation, woodsiness, and distances. Some water threat on the back nine, but not overwhelmingly so. Big tee pads on most of the holes (looked as though putting them in was an ongoing project). Flows pretty logical for the most part. Gotta love the big, but not so open downhill bomb on hole 6.
Cons: Some navigation issues, namely the walk from 16 to 17, and then crossing the road over to 18. Many of the holes in the bottom section (holes 7-15) are pretty bland compared to the upper section/uphill/downhill holes. Signage was in need of updating as of my visit. Bottom area subject to flooding.
Other Thoughts: Very popular with the locals, so either get here early or expect to do some waiting. I was here in June 2010, when this region was undergoing one of its rainiest seasons on record, and at least at the time of my trip, the lower section, while indeed muddy, was holding the river back. Just off I-229 and definitely worth the stop if you're passing through.

Pros: -very large cement tees (except for #18) and nice baskets
-good variety of shots from straight down hills to open holes, to narrow passages through the woods
-maps at the sign near the entrance to the park
-good use of natural obsticals and distance to make the course challenging and fun to play.
Cons: -At times it is hard to navigate and the walk from 16 to 17 is extremely long (the maps help)
-hole 18 does not really have a tee pad
-9-15 are all pretty open and start to get kind of repedative
-a couple of the holes play along a river which make losing a disc a good possability
Other Thoughts: It was a fun course to play. Mainly lots of variety with many interesting holes. Very good overall course.

Pros: From start to finish this course is constantly changing terrain and elevation. From shooting straight up hill, to straight through a forest, all the way to straight down a sledding hill this course had it all. There is a nice mix of long and short holes as well as the terrain chabges. A nice park is the main area for this course, but the holes are kept to the side.
Cons: Towards fall leaves can build up making it harder to find a buried disc. A river runs along the side near a hole or two, but really shouldn't pose much of a threat. Hard to complain about this course other than there weren't many more in the area.
Other Thoughts: Maybe its a SD thing but a lot of holes are marked Par 4 and even par 5 when they usually were shorter than 400 feet. Kids leaving the parking lot were bragging about shooting 14 and 15 under par, in Colorado at least, under 600 feet and they're all par 3...

Pros: This course offers tremendous variety. The top level has trees and goes through woods as well as open. Bottom level much more flat and open. Some long holes and some shorter holes.
Cons: Baskets need to be repainted for better visability. Pads vary from concrete to asphalt to wood mulch. Some baskets damaged during winter flooding
Other Thoughts: This course is a fun course to play and offers great views. Hole 6 is a long downhill down a winter sled hill. Enjoy, it is worth the stop.

Pros: -Good variety of holes
-Consistently upgrading to add challenge
-#6 is one of my favorite holes when pin is at bottom of the hill
-Upkeep is very good
-Multiple pin placements makes for a nice change
Cons: -Practice pin should be at top of hill where #1 tee is, as a lot of people start on #9 and sneak in front of people that started on #1
-On a couple holes the lack of walkways requires backtracking on the fairway you just played
-Can get quite busy, which slows play down
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a really nice course, improvements over the last couple years have brought this from a 3.0 rating to a 4.0. The addition of concrete tee pads and tee box location changes on 3, 5, 9, 13, 14, and 16 were key.

Pros: - Scenic and well kept.
- Picnic area and parking is a plus.
- Low, fat, wood signage doesn't get vandalized as frequently.
- Elevation changes and various hole terrain.
- Has its own way of being challenging.
Cons: - Long walk.
- Couple holes are back tracking. Which is annoying.
- Distances are wrong on signs.
- Back is hard to navigate the first time.
Other Thoughts: Awesome course. It's always busy because its a great course. Hole #6 is an amazing long shot down the entire hill; although the closest pin placement kind of sucks. This course is well worth several rounds and I have had a lot of fun here. Grab your good sneakers and play here asap!
