Matt's reviews

Centennial Park › December 26, 2015
B-
A fun little course in beautiful downtown Waukee. Close to many amenities and with parking aplenty, this park is a pretty nice setting for a disc golf course. Doesn't take long to play, boasts fairly straightforward navigation, and offers decent equipment. It has a few flaws -- proximity to ball fields and a walking path right along many fairways -- but if you're careful it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Not a destination course by any means, but if I lived in Waukee I'd be happy to have this course close to home.
Southwoods Park › December 26, 2015
C+
With a little money and TLC, Southwoods could be a really great course. As it stands -- with it's signage issues and navigational struggles -- it's pretty average. Some fun hills to throw down, but the overall layout brings the fun factor down a few pegs.
Tourist Park › December 1, 2015
C-
Not awful, not awesome, but more baskets in Black Hawk County? Definitely a plus.
Pete Crivaro Park › December 1, 2015
C+
A little pedestrian, but there are much worse courses out there. Definitely a good use of the land off the main hub of 14th Street. Great for glow and quick lunchtime rounds when you're short on time or daylight and are Jonesing for a game.
Iowa State University › December 1, 2015
B+
Great course that Cyclones must be ecstatic to have on campus. Definitely worth playing if you find yourself in Ames.
Deerwood Park › December 1, 2015
B
A diamond in the Evansdale rough, Deerwood is exactly the kind of course any hardcore disc golfer with a little land would love to have in their backyard. Definitely worth a look.
Heritage Park › December 1, 2015
C
Not a bad course at all, just a little pedestrian after playing courses like Ewing, Walnut, Pickard and Grandview. However, Heritage plays much quicker than the previously mentioned courses which makes it ideal for a quick round when you don't have much time or daylight and you're Jonesing for a game.
Big Creek State Park › December 1, 2015
A-
Awesome up-and-coming course with a challenge for everybody. There's room for improvement, of course, but even as-is it stands as one of the premier courses in the state. Definitely worth a look for any hardcore disc golfer.
Waterloo Exchange Park › December 1, 2015
A
I don't understand how this course is "only" the #17 rated course in the state. It deserves to be a lot higher on that list. Exchange -- or "Rocketslide Park" as we called it back in the day -- (with its 27 holes) has something for everybody and will challenge you no matter what your skill level. Worth a trip out of your way if you find yourself passing through The Loo. Check it out.
Grandview Park › December 1, 2015
B+
A truly great course.
Ewing Park › December 1, 2015
A
Picturesque and challenging, Ewing is the gem of south Des Moines. It is truly one of the best courses in the state.
Sunnyside Disc Golf Course › December 1, 2015
A-
Great course with great locals who take extreme pride in and extreme care of this gem in the Midwest. If you find yourself passing through BFE, Iowa, do yourself a favor and check it out. Well worth the stop out of your way.
Wildcat Bluff › December 1, 2015
A+
If there was a rating higher than A+, Wildcat Bluff would get it from me. Quite simply one of the best courses I've ever played. Any hard-core disc golfer owes it to him or herself to find their way to Urbana and play this course. Especially in the fall....simply gorgeous.
Walnut Ridge Recreation Area › December 1, 2015
A
Absolutely awesome course with a little something for players of all ages and skill levels. You do NOT want to drive through Des Moines without playing Walnut Ridge....unless it's closed like it is from November to April. :(
Pickard Park › December 1, 2015
A-
Definitely a must-play if you're trekking through middle America.
International Disc Golf CenterSteady Ed Headrick Memorial › August 27, 2015
A+
This is the first course I've rated A+ and if you haven't played the IDGC, you need this in your life. Not because *I* say so, but because fundamentally it's a phenomenal course. It has everything you could ever want in a disc golf course, to say nothing of the profound justice it does to the legacy of "Steady" Ed Headrick and his impact on the game. Any hard-core disc golfer with the means and motivation owes it to him or herself to make the trek to Wildwood Park to take on these three outstand ...

Covenant Church › January 7, 2014
B
Pros: - Decent course in a nice area of Greenville. - Plenty of parking even if you play Sunday morning during services. - Most holes are easy to navigate and next tees are usually indicated on the previous holes tee box. - Some really interesting, challenging lines and creative, themed baskets. #8 pops into mind right off the bat as a prime example: Shoot from the tee across the road, over a ditch/creek, up to an elevated basket on a pedestal. Interesting par 3. - Provides a nice ...

North Campus Crossing › December 30, 2014
A-
Pros: - Beautiful course which you can tell is well cared for. The pics of the course on this page are extremely outdated. The grass is impeccably manicured; on most holes it seemed like we were playing on a ball golf course fairway -- if not the green! Played in November when the leaves were falling and with the cotton fields next to the course in full-bloom, this course is something right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. It really is that nice. Extremely clean, too. - Great layout that ...

West Meadowbrook Park › January 7, 2014
B+
Good course with great potential. Lots of interesting lines. Only drawback was the traffic and the fact that #2 runs right through the soccer field that at times seems to have a pretty intense 30 vs. 30 game going on. A great course, regardless.
Barnet Park › January 7, 2014
A-
A really fun course. Sort of the northern version of Castle Hayne. Well maintained with great amenities (park, restrooms, concessions), this course will give anyone who fancies themselves skilled a run for their money. Definitely a must-play in eastern NC.
Richlands-Steed Park › January 7, 2014
C+
A great course to grip it and rip it on. Provides a nice change from the wooded holes around Wilmington. Sort of unreasonable pars though....no way is a 350 hole a par 5. Nevertheless, it's not busy, it's very well-maintained, and parking is plentiful. A great course to introduce someone to disc golf.
Joe Eakes Park › January 7, 2014
B
Excellent course with a sweet layout. Only gripe is the trees that are so thick they seem to grab your disc and hang on to it. Keep an eye on your line if you wanna keep 'em! Regardless though, Kure Beach is still the #2 course in the Cape Fear Region, second only to The Castle.
Arrowhead Park › September 29, 2013
C+
Hate giving Arrowhead a C+, but it's bush-league compared to Castle Hayne. It's fairly short so t's a very decent course -- perfect for a lunchtime break away from the office -- but it's VERY wooded and there's only one or two holes that really allow you to open up and let 'er rip. The foliage makes it challenging, but can also make it extremely frustrating. It's well maintained though and, despite being so close to the coast, has decent elevation changes on a couple holes. All in all it's not a bad course if you're Jonesin' for a game.....it's definitely worth checking out.
Castle Hayne Park › September 29, 2013
A
Well maintained with a tremendous variety of holes to keep your game sharp. Exceptional course. Castle Hayne is the PREMIER DGC in SE North Carolina. If you're visiting Wilmington you'd be doing yourself a favor by checking it out.
