"Very open, and somewhat hilly at the beginning holes. If they mowed recently, BEWARE. Lost a disc tonight becuse I’m sure it’s under a hay bale of dried grass in the open fields. If it was better kept, would be an awesome field to try new disks! "

"Despite how wide open the field is, it is pretty easy to lose a disc due to the blanket of dead grass covering everything. I agree with a previous comment that it seems like a waste of 18 baskets. I hope they plan on planting trees or something to make it a bit more interesting. A lot of potential, but disappointing in its current state."

"When mowed, it’s a good beginner course or for those needing some driver practice. Would be nicer if they at least mowed in some fairways within the massive field it’s in as a way to keep it looking more maintained and course-like. Signage and benches will be a nice addition in time. "

"It's nice to see a course return to Swope Park. Everything is clean, teepads are humongous, nice Mach X baskets, and fairways are pretty clean. My complaint is that there isn't any shot to throw either than a hyzer or hyzer spike for 15 of the 18 holes. There is no mid-range game. There are no obstacles aside from a few trees which also means there is little shade. There also aren't a lot of trash cans and there isn't a bench to sit down at for a rest in-between holes. It's fun, but not exciting"
