White Birch Park
Very popular beginner course. I like to play here when time is short, like weekday afternoons in the spring and fall. Yes, the holes are very close to each other, especially 7-9. but I love the finishing holes, 16-18. Like it has been said, the pro players come to practice approach shots. I have seen several really good players with two discs, approach and putter.
It's a short course because it's an old course. Disc technology wasn't very good back then and discs didn't fly as far. I recommend that you avoid this course on the weekends because it's full of beginners who have no etiquette. The vegetation has been trampled over the years so it gets muddy easily. Even though it's pay to play no one goes on the course to collect $ from you. You have to go to the front desk to pay. I've played this course for almost 30 years now and it pains me to give it only 3 chains. It probably deserves less.
First course in Missouri. Very short holes. All under 300 feet. Two sets of tees and one pin placement. Holes are close to each other, so keep an eye out for discs. Lots of people play this so if the course is wet she is really muddy. You could just use your putter on most of the holes. It is pay to play. Concrete tees. Good beginner course.
If you are a beginner this course is for you.. Really short and not too much in the way of your throwing. TERRIBLE lay out though... the holes are way to close together.. you find yourself waiting for groups around you cause your all on top of each other.. I dont think there is one hole over 300 feet.. there have been alot of aces out there due to the short easy challenge.. They also charge a $1 fee to play here.. although i wasnt asked to pay the one time I went.. If your a begginer check it out but if your advanced at disc I would reccomend never going here. seemed like a huge waste of my time! I dont see myself EVER going back here... really really confusing layout! I think if they reduced this course to a 9 hole instead of 18 it would be a little better.. just too small of an area for so many holes.....i would have to agree with lumberjack. Great course to practice your approaches!
Okay the other guy that commented on this course went one time...I on the other hand have played this course alot...yes it is very short and its not quite as challenging as it is described to be...great for beginners to learn the game, and for advanced players its a great place to practice your approaches. I play here as a warm up for places like Sioux Passage or Rock Springs. If you can throw with some distance you really dont need to take a bag on the course, all you'd need is like one distance driver that will go right and left for you, a buzzz(you will use the buzzz the most), and a putter. I like this course for nothing more than practicing approach shots considering most of the tees there are glorified approach shots. The other dude is right, that if you take the game seriously, yeah you wont get what you want from white birch, but if you are just looking to go out with some friends then this is your course. If your looking for something a lot more challenging try Jefferson Barracks, Sioux Passage, Endicott, Creve Cour, Rock Springs, or Unger Park...on a side note this is the first established Disc Golf Course in Missouri, way back in 1979.
