Pros: This course forces you to make a lot of risk versus reward choices. A lot of times you see a window to the hole but you know your chances are slim of success if to try to throw it in that window so it tests your decision making ability. I really enjoyed getting to play this course the day before the Ice Bowl 2012 and today with other more experienced players. Without a guide you can find your way around but it can be confusing the first time. I really enjoyed holes 3 - 8 because they challenge you to throw through tight windows at times.
Cons: The course has some extra tee pads currently that are left over from previous holes or tee pad positions that can be confusing to first time players and although the maps do a good job of displaying the layout they do not explain the purpose of the old tees so players who are new to the course don't get confused.
Other Thoughts: Good course that I would recommend to anyone in the area to expose areas of their short to midrange game that are lacking.

 New layout is more logical. Still needs some cleanup work.

Pros: Decent rec to intermediate course with three tee boxes on every hole. Some cool, albeit short wooded holes. Despite this being a mixed use park, most of the course is out of the way of other activities. Fun for winter time play when there's no foliage and lines open up. Good tee signs with all tee-pin distances located at the red tees. Wooded shots despite their short length in most cases, require some precision.
Cons: Some pretty dull under 200' pitch and putt holes that just didn't excite me. Not terribly well maintained in the woods as there are a lot of dead limbs around. Gets overgrown in the summer. White (middle) tees can be hard to find. Some sign and nickel vandalism. Hole 9 tee sign is missing.
Other Thoughts: Tierra has always had a reputation as a niche course compared to the 27 hole Roper Park course across town. This course has moved slightly over time. The layout here used to be bewildering. You had to walk all the way to the back of the park to get to Tee #1. Now its conveniently located up by the restroom which despite the simple, short hole, improves the flow. Some added trees in the open section to tighten things up would improve things, as would some cleanup in the woods. Not the best in town, but with all the different tees, you can mix it up for variety.

Pros: Lots of activity at park: skate park, playground, pavilion.
Cons: Poorly maintained, the holes are surrounded by waist high weeds while the grass is cut around the walkways. One long tee had a tree planted recently right in front of it. Hole nine is an open hole of maybe 150-180 ft, no features.
Other Thoughts: Not worth playing until it gets maintained.

Pros: -Most of the holes on the course are wooded, providing a decent number of tight technical shots.
-Multiple tee positions to throw from for each hole
-Course is acceptibly maintained in the early part of the season, but becomes more unkempt as time goes on.
-Hole 2 from the alternate tee features a nice left turn over water to get to the basket.
-Water comes into play on 1-2 holes.
Cons: -The holes on this course are rather short, even when using the long tees.
-On holes #1(alternate tee), 2(both tees), and 9(both tees), the fairways cross walking paths where people are usually riding bikes through the park.
-Layout of course can be confusing for people who havent played here before.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a decent course to practice your midrange technique. The only opportunity to really let loose is from the alternate tee for hole 1. The course is only 9 holes, but playing through a second time from the alternate tees really adds a different approach to how you play the course.

Pros: This course has the potential to be a solid, short, wooded course that would make a nice alternative to the larger more open course in Lincoln.
Cons: The wooded holes are severely overgrown with weeds making it difficult to locate discs even on good throws (there is really no "fairway" left). Two of the nine baskets are missing making it hardly worthwhile to make a trip to this course.
Other Thoughts: I find it amazing that a community the size of Lincoln cannot maintain two disc golf courses.

Pros: plenty of trees to provide obsticles. Lots of shade. multiple tee pads.
Cons: in the summer the overgrowth and bugs are just horrible. Can take a long time just hunting for discs if your off just by a little bit. when they added the ponds in the park they took out hole 9 and did not replace it. people trash this course, there are broken bottles and trash everywhere. it gets very muddy after rain so avoid playing in or right after any significant rain.
Other Thoughts: it is a different place to play when Roper is in a tournament(if your not in that) or just tired of the same park. not a lot of choices in Lincoln so it is what it is

Pros: Lots of good technical holes. A nice change of pace from the other course in town, Roper. Nice course to play on a windy day because of the timber. The mult. tee pads are awesome, although some get lost during the summer due to overgrowth. Great course to play in the late fall/winter/spring seasons. Tee signs are awesome.
Cons: Better be wearing Jeans! Plan on lots of bugs and itching. During the summer this course toes the line between being out of control and overly weedy. Keep an eye on your disc, it's easy to loose them out here. Lot of trash all over the place even though there are trash cans on the course. If I remember right basket 7 was missing and 9 was gone.
Other Thoughts: Fun course to play, but if I had to choose I'd to go Roper instead. Tierra has a lot of potential and the LFDC is doing their best to keep it maintained, but it just isn't there now. Hopefully the re-design will give it some life!

Pros: Lots of shade in the summer for most of the course.
Cons: I played in the summer so the pictures on this site are barely recognizable! It was so overgrown we we searching for our discs almost every hole. We also had a hard time finding the layout due to overgrowth. Broken glass all over the 3rd basket area. Hole 9 wasn't even up--construction I think. The upkeep was non-existant
Other Thoughts: Mostly a technical course with a few open shots on 1,2, and 9--when it is up.
Play in the spring or fall.

Pros: This was a fun and challenging course. Most of the holes play through the trees which make it interesting. There are a couple open hole to give you a much needed break from the trees (2 and 9). The signs are awesome. They have a drawing of the hole, distances from each tee to each pin, and tell you where the next tee is, see photos. Speaking of tees the cement ones for the shorts and longs were very good and kept my shoes cleaner, see cons. The park its self is nice and the course only takes up a little protion of it so for the most part you don't have to worry about hitting bystanders.
Cons: The paths/fairways in the wood are mainly dirt, which is understandable but we played in a mist so they were mostly mud. Also when we played there was quite a bit of trash around, which is silly because lots tee signs had trash bags on them.
Other Thoughts: The map on here has one slight mistake. They've changed hole 9 on the map to hole 1 and everything else was moved up acourdingly.
