Played yesterday while in Maynard for a wedding. Not a very enjoyable round. The course starts off nice, but then goes downhill. The prairie area the course goes through is just ridiculous, I searched on a lot of holes, never losing a disc, and got absolutely tore up from them. On a plus side it does teach you to play smart golf, but with the distances they have you should be rewarded with a wider green/fairway if you can throw that far. With some loving this course could be really nice, but it currently has a very poor design. Some of the tees are on top of the pins and what’s up with the 3 300ft boomerang holes with 10 feet tall thick ass prairies on both sides of the fairway. I had to pitch out off the tee on all 3 to card a 3 (you should never have to pitch out off the tee. If you don’t pitch out you are throwing up a blind prayer that you are hoping you can find. The wooded holes and greens are also lacking in the maintenance department. The course is worth a visit once a lot of work can be done. Overall it was a rather unenjoyable round for me.\
On a side note I played the Oelwein course the same day. It is a great 9 hole course with 2 tees per hole. The tees are just being framed, but once done it will be a great small town course. The shorts are fun and make you work for a few of the deuces. The longs are just that, great 350 – 400 ft shots that require you to throw both hyzers and anhyzers. Overall a great design for the land they had to work with.
