Here's my list, in no particular order, based on challenge, terrain, and overall fun factor

  • Middle
  • Pickard
  • Atlantic
  • Graceland

Close, but missing some key elements
  • Walnut - Very L to R dominant, flat and no water in play (or at least shouldn't be)
  • Indian Hills - Very R to L dominant, some stupid holes
  • West Lake - has everything you could ask for, but has some stupid holes that don't fit the course, is a long ass round, and the amount of water is intimidating for the majority of players.
    (I personally like it and have a lot of fun, shot my personal best sanctioned round and only W in ADV there, but I see and acknowledge the detractors)
  • Wildcat - an extremely awesome course and well manicured, but its all woods.

So you stopped by Red on the way home from the shop. Only way you get a sig confused with a post. Terrible choice of location and employee Kevin :P

Growing up in Ottumwa I've have played IHCC many times, but in my opinion I'd prefer Memorial park in long placements, or if you know the course you can play extreme placements.

I'm bummed I've never played it... I got a chance to walk the land right before it got put in and thought it had potential to be pretty awesome.

yes signs would help especially with out of town players, they get confused quite easily.

All of the money raised to put this course in was spearheaded by Matt Frymoyer. The city did nothing but allow us to use the land. That was part of the deal. "you can put a course in, but we will not help pay for it" So we did the best we could with what we had. I agree that the course would be easier to play with better signage. However, I think that raising $12,000 on our own time gave us the deciding factor on what would be done with the money. It was much easier to make the signs out of donated pieces from Matts employer than to pay for expensive signs with money we didn't have. There are many areas where this course could be improved and hopefully someone takes the lead and starts working on this. Until then, we must enjoy what is available.

Finally you and I agree on something. It's a beautiful park, and there are some good shots, but I'm not sure it makes my top 20.

While hole 6 doesn't really fit, or have much of a "fair"way, the rest of the course is legit. Great park course. It's a better Grandview, and I love Grandview.

BTW, we played west lake yesterday, it's still a beast. Captain put down a 76 :shock:
