Pros: Lenexa DGC is a super fast 9 that you can play sith one or two discs. I used my San Marino Roc on a few drives, but you could go putter all the way in a pinch.

The shortest hole is 123' and the longest is 171', so you don't really need a run up at the tee pad on any of the holes. The map shows multiple pin positions, but I didn't notice the unused post sleeves. If they do get moved, it still is not a long layout.

There are concrete tees, and the baskets are all good quality DISCatchers. There is a course map as you enter from the parking lot near the basketball court and the swimming pool. The park does have nice changes in elevation on a few holes. All of the fairways are well manicured grass.

I liked the holes with elevation change. 1, 2, & 3 all have some downhill action. 1 can give you a roll away if you hit the tree or just get unlucky. 2 and 3 have some rough near the basket that can get you in trouble if you lose control. 9 plays uphill toward the pool, and is probably the most difficult hole. There is a big tree halfway to the basket that can take you out.

There is a bridge behind the third basket that you have to cross get to the middle part of the course. 4, 5 and 6 are in a loop there, and you cross back over the bridge to continue on hole 7. Hole 4 does have lanes through the trees that require some control to navigate.

This is an ideal course to take a new player or a young child. It is fun for an experienced player just because it is possible to get a birdie on every hole. I had a putt on all of them but was unable to go 9/9.
Cons: Super short and easy. You may get stuck waiting for a group on nearby holes that are close together. 7 and 8 are very close to one another. Families with small kids are likely to be out there, and not going at a fast pace.

Hole 8 and 9 had some muddy, squishy grass when I played. There hadn't been much rain prior to that. It is on the hill beneath the pool, maybe that contributed.
Other Thoughts: Lenexa has a pretty cool park for their community, and the disc golf course is nice. It isn't an epic nine, more of a fun pitch and putt. It is set up well with great equipment, and it has interesting terrain, but it's just too easy to take seriously.

I was six under on my first round (21). Missed birdie putts on the other 3 holes. If I can get my girlfriend into disc golf I'm sure we will come here to learn some of the fundamentals. I wouldn't mind coming back to try for a 9 under, all birdie round. Who knows, maybe I get an ace or two in there as well.

Pros: Very short course that can be finished in 30 minutes or less.

The hole lengths make this an ideal course for junior players or beginners. But that doesn't mean it is no good for more experienced players. With the average hole being 145-180 feet, it makes this course ideal for people that want to work on their putting.
Cons: Hole 7 plays into the fairway for hole 8 which means if you are just behind another group, you have to wait a little longer here so you don't hit someone.

The tee pad for hole 1 is right next to the basketball court and there were some people playing basketball the day I went. They had put all of their stuff on the pad so we had to start just to the right of the tee. Not a major inconvenience but could have been separated from the court a little more.
Other Thoughts: You could easily do this course over a short lunch break or as a quick workout in the evening.

Pros: Lenexa Disc Golf Course sits inside a park called Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park. The course starts at the front of the park right by the basketball court. There is a nice sign complete with a course map. You probably won't need the map. The concrete tee pads are small but perfectly functional here. The tee signs are solidly built and give you the information you need. The baskets are Discatchers with a number on each one. You probably don't need this number either. Each hole has both an A and B position. Each hole is a potential Ace waiting to happen.

# 1 is a 138' straight shot.
# 2 is a neat little 123' downhill toss.
# 3 is interesting as you need to throw a hyser around the tennis courts.

Cross the bridge to get to 4-6.

# 4 is 144' to a basket with four trees around it.
# 5 is 138' needing a minimal hyser.
# 6 is a straight 135'. Miss one tree here.

Cross the bridge again.

# 7 is straight and 198'.
# 8 plays either 189' or 207' or 177' and all you need is a simple hyser.
# 9 is either 141' or 219' up a small hill from a tee pad stuck off in the bushes.
Cons: What's wrong with this course is........nothing! For it's target audience it's about perfect. For those of you who want to compete, throw big air and play big boy courses, then this is not the course for you.
Other Thoughts: This is just a very comfortable and fun course for the beginner crowd. There aren't many courses around that really cater to the really casual player, the ones who come out with one disc or the family with two kids. I like the fact that it incorporates so many elements of a so called regular course. It has a fun downhill, hyser throws, anhyser throws and nine Ace runs. Come and chase Aces but don't show up and then complain that it's too short and easy. Lenexa Disc Golf Course wasn't designed for you, Dude.

Pros: This is an extremely quick course to play if you are in a hurry or if you just want to get a warm-up before heading to another course. It has concrete t-pads but they are not really necessary. If you are desperate to get your first Ace, there is a good chance of it here. It is a great beginner course, so it might be good if you take a friend just getting into the game. It is good to work on your short game and putts. It is rarely crowded
Cons: It is only 9 holes. There are often walkers and joggers on the course. Hole 8 throws over part of hole 7. It feels like you are playing the equivalent of miniature golf sometimes. Calling the holes par 3's might be a bit of a stretch.
Other Thoughts: I play this course a fair amount because I can get to it so easily while my kids are busy with gymnastics or dance. I can pretty much play the whole course in about 20 minutes. Even if the holes are short it can be a good ego boost after playing some of the longer courses around town.

 nice short course

Pros: in a very nicely maintained park
easy to navigate
nice tee pads
great baskets
very good use of available space
park is clean and litter free
parking shouldn't be an issue
easy to find
Cons: walking trails near almost every hole so be careful with your throws
water leaking from pool area had basket area at #8 fairly muddy
basket placement for hole #3 ( I think ), was near a hillside next to the tennis courts. we had a bit of a wait while people were getting ready to play tennis but it is a multi use park.....
Other Thoughts: as a beginning player I really liked this course. it was easy to birdie or par each hole, even got close enough to hitting a couple aces that I scared myself. no need for a driver. threw a mid off the tee and then it was putting time. the likelihood of losing a disc was pretty small. some holes are tucked pretty close to one another so some common sense and courtesy goes a long way. Would definitely recommend this course.

Pros: Concrete pads, nice baskets. Very short and technical. Is fun for all even the most experienced because it is an ace race type of course. You could get away with playing with only one or two discs.
Cons: Some hole overlap. Baskets don't change location often but seems that anybody could move them they are just bolted in but not locked.
Other Thoughts: Great course to practice your putt and approach game. Also perfect for introducing players to the game. It is a quick course you can play 9 in 30ish minutes or play it a couple times or more to get in a full 18.

Pros: They did a good job with sch a small area including trees and elevation. Pins are tucked to eliminate the short, wide open look a lot of little parks have. The baskets are nice and the tee pads are adequate for the distances on this course. I really like holes 4 and 8. There are two basket locations for each hole. It is a fun beginner's course.
Cons: You have to walk back from basket 7 to tee 8 in part of 7 fairway. It's pretty short.
Other Thoughts: If you add the walking paths/parking lots as OB, it makes things a bit tougher. I played it twice: once with a full bag and once with a mid and putter which is what I should have done the first time. Bigger, younger arms could get by with a putter. My son-in-law was with me and he thought the card game, Ript Revenge, would be a good option for more experienced players on this course.

 A surprising little course

Pros: - Well maintained
- Good signage
- Quality baskets for such a little course
- Ability to lose a disc is minimal
Cons: - Can get overcrowded quick
- Play is through/along walking trails
Other Thoughts: I would not of thought they would have tucked a little course in the park. No holes over 200' and if there are they are barely. A great intro to disc golf course or working on putter/approach.

Pros: The grounds were well manicured.
Excellent tee pads that provide for a nice run up.
Good signage.
Good use of the elevation that is present, both uphill and downhill.
There are 2 pin placements per hole and #8 had 3 placements. Disc loss should be nil. This course uses the trees that are present to make some nice lines.
The flow is logical and there are other amenities here like a basketball court, tennis court, aquatic center, etc.
Good beginners course or a place to improve your midrange game.
Rounds will play quickly here.
Many holes will have you running the chains trying for the ACE.
has a nice bridge to get to #4 and #7.
Cons: The walk between a couple of baskets and a the next tees were a tad too long.
There is a possibility to put a disc in the tennis courts on #3 and in the aquatic center on #9. You would have to shank one pretty good to do so, so please pay attention before you throw.
The walking trails on #5,#8 & #9 come into play so again check before you throw.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great beginners course. This would be a good place to introduce the game to a new player and at the same time you could be working on your short game. The holes don't have a whole lot of length so if you are looking for a grip and rip course then you will have to move along. This would be a good place to warm up before you went to Prairie Center or another area course. I feel that they were aiming for the beginning disc golfer and I feel that they hit their target with this course. This is a course that when I first got into the game I would have been super excited to play multiple times because I would be able to reach the holes easily and my scores would've been close to par. With a few more rounds under my belt I still enjoyed my round here and found something to keep me interested.
If you are in the area and have your family with you spend some time here and enjoy some disc golf with them and then enjoy the other amenities that the park has to offer.

 A Great Short Course

Pros: When it comes to course that the hole average is less than 200 feet, this may be one of the better ones that I have played. The amenities at this course are something you would see at a big 18 hole course; it has a big map at the beginning of the course, substantial concrete tees, and brand new Discatcher baskets.

The course has a fair amount of elevation, and it has a surprising number of obstacles for such a short course. Pretty much every hole is an ace run and shooting four to five under is not out of the question, which is fun in my opinion.

The course is actually used. From my experience, most nine hole courses are used ever, but it was a pleasant surprise to see that this course was used by all ages and all skill levels.
Cons: There is a little bit of backtracking and confusion with the course. You have to walk over the bridge for holes 4-6 and then back over to get to hole 7. It also could be dangerous since you have to walk in front of hole 3 basket to get to tee 7; just be careful and aware of other disc throwers in the park.

I was not a huge fan of hole 9. For one thing, it is a hard tee to find and it is on a slope that makes it very hard to get to the basket in one shot. There is also mud that seems to be permanently running down that hill that can make you slip if you are not careful.
Other Thoughts: Maybe it was just the vibe I got from Kansas City disc golf scene, but the atmosphere at this course was great. It is a very easy course, but has some challenge that would make a perfect -9 round very hard. This would be a great place to introduce new players, and a great place to play a few quick rounds.
