Pros: No two holes are the same. On one hole you will be throwing down a steep hill towards a river guarded basket, on another you will be throwing a spike hyzer up a steep bluff...really keeps you on your toes! Very nicely laid out course that offers a decent level of challenge while maintaining the fun factor. Every disc golfer should be able to find a hole or two that will stick out in there mind after they play Yellow Creek for the first time. The Final nine holes (19-27) are a nice addition that provide an opportunity too air-it-out a little. If you find yourself in Owensboro, make sure you take time to play this course. It is truly a pleasure to play.
Cons: Yep, there's lots of duck poop. Creek will devour your discs if water is high. Not the most challenging course for highly skilled players.
Other Thoughts: I decided to make the 70+ mile drive to play this course at the reccomendation of my brother. It is totally worth the drive on its own merits. I played Panther Creek on the same trip and wish I had just played this course twice. Will definately be back.

Pros: A great course. Lots of variety, elevation changes. The creek comes into play on #1. I've seen some of the big arms go into the creek or blow past this hole. Many of the holes are birdiable but, because of pin placement, you can go from birdie to bogie in the blink of an eye. Hole #3 has become my personal favorite. Hole 18 over the lake is not that far, but a little wind and it becomes tough. Very challenging course with the creek & lake coming into play on several holes. One of the best maintained courses I have ever played. The parks dept. is the best. The additional 9 holes to be added will be the crowning touch to a great course!
Cons: Fowl fecal matters, or as others have said, duck poo. Restroom facilities for humans would be nice.

Pros: Great course and great use of space. Well maintained!! Doesnt offer the distance shots like other courses but will make you play well and hit putts. Hole 4 has a great elevation change, and a bad kick off a tree will have you going from Birdie to Bogey...
Cons: Yes, the Geese will attack you. Also, I wouldnt recommend walking barefoot around the lake.
Other Thoughts: 27 holes soon, can't beat that, much applause and respect goes out too the local guys down there in Daviess County.

Pros: Good course for all skill levels. The addition of 9 more holes will make this course much better. scores of 40 do happen. 18 is a nice test for a newbie Disc Golfer!
Cons: Goose poop!
scores of 40 do happen
Other Thoughts: overall...one of my personal favorites. Hole 6 is a well designed hole. 6 has a beautiful risk/reward putt if 30 ft+ short of the pin

Pros: New 9 holes will be added soon. The extra 9 holes will only be 1000 ft. shorter than the original 18. Uphill, downhill, forehand, backhand shots all required. Infamous hole 18 is a great finishing hole.
Cons: Geese Poo everywhere around the lake. Maybe a little to short of a course for the big arms, but it atleast requires you to know how to putt.

 A Great Par Three Course

Pros: This is a GREAT pitch and putt course. There is a good combination of nearly EVERY type of shot you can think of. Up hill, down hill, left to right, right to left, water hazards, OB, it's all there at Yellow Creek. The park is always well maintained and the locals are terrific. Nine more holes will be added permenantly later this year.
Cons: It is a bit short by most Pros standards but if your looking for fun pitch and putt course this is a course for you. Goose and duck poop can really build up around the lake too.
