Pros: It's Missouri's first DG course and you can certainly feel it's history while you play it ; ) It's a shady course (playing almost exclusively in the woods), so it is a good place to play when the days are hot. Nice place to play a retro-round with an original Frisbee... if you have that inclination because the holes are all under 250ft and mostly under 190. Several very challenging shots and physically dangerous hazards are threatening you with a real reason to keep your shots on the fairway and minimize reckless throws. I see where work has been done to help prevent the horrible run-off and muddy washouts (I'm not sure it was enough) and the concrete tees were welcome. The park itself seems very nice: community center, water-park and a really cool looking skate park.
Cons: This course is, as hinted at before, short. All 18 combined are barely longer than most 9 hole courses in the area. When I went, it was really muddy and slippery (it had been over 2 days since the last rain). There was a creek that had washed out very badly to form a steep gully that was there to swallow your discs on at least 1/3 of the holes. I found the course layout to be very confusing for the most part. Most tees seemed to be missing a sign and half of the baskets were barely marked. The fairways were also too close together/overlapping to be safe, so watch you back and make sure you are aware of when other players are throwing.
Other Thoughts: Just like others have said, there are signs everywhere telling you to pay $1.00 to play, but there was nobody there at either building to take any money.
This course honestly seems a little scary. While I was there, I literally saw a guy break his leg from slipping on mud that had washed out across some stairs and almost slipped and fell and hurt myself trying to recover my buddy's disc and my own from the gully. I also didn't especially appreciate listening to all the excessively loud profanity, suggestive comments and racist comments from the drunk biker guys who were partying it up on the course. It's just a shame, I wanted to have a good time here...

Pros: It is a disc golf course. Ace opportunities.
Cons: Pay to play. On a very small area. Holes overlap and people throwing at each other.
Other Thoughts: If you are very accurate this would be good for you. If not then just go for the experience
