JB is awesome. It has rolling hills, huge trees, it's very good design for what's there. Some holes are a little deceiving on the distances and there are some tough greens, you'll want to play a few holes before you start.

Ednicott is a little shorter, and has some elevation, I've played there a couple times. Some wooded holes, along with some relatively open ones. I'd liken it to Maytag (Newton) & Legion, maybe a little.

My guess is you'll like JB the best of the two. I'm not really going out on a limb by saying that either. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts though.

JB was a fun/fair course. It was tough with 20-30 MPH, 40 degrees, and it absolutely poored. One of the most challening days of golfing EVER! Overall, I would give the course a B+. All different kinds of shots and options. Reminds me of a combination of Grandview and Jones with good elevation.

Enicott on the other hand was not a big fan of. Poke'n'pray. It seemed like almost all the baskets were in the middle of shule or blocked by trees. Now i know what to expect when locals say "the course is technical." What they really mean is it is lucky and hope you can make it through those wall of trees ahead. Grade: D+/C-

It's funny how "technical" can end up meaning, "pray, alot"

It was miserable. I had 0 amount of fun playing disc golf. I was so cold and wet, that in between rounds, I was at a St. Louis Laundromat in my boxers and a t-shirt waiting for my clothes to dry.

JB is sweet from what I remember. Then againg I was there in the middle of the summer several years back when I played it. I remember the elevation and tough greens especially. The weather could have been worse, you could have been playing here in Des Moines :evil:
NO!......Welp!?

yeah, usually weather.com aids in making traveling decisions for disc golf in February, lmao. :lol:

I could've told you last Wednesday it would've been worth the wait for St. Louis Open, and skip Legion....oooohhhh decisions, decision, decisions. :lol:

I'm happy all we had to deal with is wind and rain. I hate snow.

Yeah, I went down to st. louis this weekend as well, but not to play golf thankfully. I ended up playing Sioux Passage on friday and it was wonderful. Sun out, nice breeze. No scorekeeping - ha ha ha.

But I felt bad for you guys playing ni the tournaments. It was MISERABLE. So how did everyone fare (besides the laundramat incident which has now blinded me...)

Mike got 4th both days and probably took around $65
I got 2nd and 4th and cashed $100 and also another $50 for shooting 2nd best overall score both days.
George Smith won both days and went home with $200 and bonus of $100 for overall.

Was that a side bet for combined scores for both days or was it included in the entry?
NO!......Welp!?
