Nice City Park Course
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Concrete tees
-Nice DisCatcher Baskets (an update from previous review)
-Signage is OK
-Half the tee shots are blind for some interest
-Nicely restored railway depot to check out just on the other side of the tracks
Cons: -No pars listed, signage has taken a beating
-Fairly short with only one hole over 400'
-Basket for #10 is missing (sleeve in in the ground, no basket)
-Soccer (#6) and baseball fields (#3, #4 and maybe #5) in play
-Shelter and swing set in play on #2
-#8 plays right across the #9 tee box
Other Thoughts: Kelly Park DGC plays in a nice two section park in the south end of Red Oak, IA. The course is set for 10 holes with good concrete tees and OK signage. Basket #10 was missing during my round and mentioned in a previous review. From seeing a previous review discuss homemade baskets, I wonder if, when replaced, they were only able to get 9 baskets. After the first hole, the course moves clockwise around the perimeter of the park. While I was alone on my round, this appears to be a multi-use park with a couple of shelters, a set of swings, a baseball field and a soccer field. Mild elevation change on the first half, flat on the back 5. About half of the holes have a blind tee shot. You do want to go wide right on #7 as I ended up on a small bump of a hill with many small trees to work around to rescue my disc. There is a very nicely restored railway depot just on the other side of the tracks from the park. Limited hours, I slipped in a visit just before my round. Overall, an above average park course. The knocks are the potential hazards with other activities and the missing basket for #10. Not often do I make it to this SW corner of Iowa, but I would play again, if in the area.

Pros: Nice baskets. Mild terrain.
Cons: Plays clockwise around edge of park, so harder for left to right players. Basket 5 needs poison ivy kiiled. No Par ratings.
Other Thoughts: Hole 10 has no basket. A lot of Ash trees have been removed and replace with new trees.

Lots of room for improvement
Pros: You don't have to drive out of town to play
Cons: The baskets are home made out of square stock steel and tear up discs.
The city's lawnmowers have got too close to several baskets and tore them up to the point of discs falling out the bottoms and sides of the tray
Other Thoughts: Don't bring any nice discs!

Pros: Sweet course, has a lot of fun. Excellent design. Will be back to play this again.
Cons: Not a lot to complain about. Not enough golf? I was disappointed when I was done that there wasn't more to play.
Other Thoughts: Keep up the good work. Hope to see more courses around this area.
