Don't be a hero in the woods. Play smart and stay in the fairway

I saved a picture of it on my phone and I've heard there's some holes that take sharp right turns then left turns a 100ft later that make it impossible to two shot

That's hole 5, your best bet is a straight shot that turns over slightly off the tee to get down to the corner, then you can try to get something around the second corner if you're in a good spot. If you take a 4 on that hole you're in good shape.

Yup! get ready to see more of this in the future/outside of the Chicagoland area. The Chicagoland area is a couple years behind the rest of the country in terms of difficulty on the course but thanks to a few people in the area that won't be the case in the next year or two.

boy that was one hell of a course didnt do too bad the first game, but i decided i was angry at trees or something the second game and hit like 20 of them and it was boog city. it got a lot windier on the second game but didnt lose any disc i could see in the summer the brush being real thick. I really liked the course had a couple close aces and had some nice 40ft + putts. if more courses around start to get like that one i like the future of disc golf around here.

The brush at Indian Oaks never gets particularly thick once you're well in the woods as the forest there is fairly mature, much of it not being farmed for a hundred years or better. Doesn't look much like farmland now but if you go a bit to the left of #11 fairway you can find a pile of field stones and what remains of a refuse pit from when it was farmed.

Mature woodlands are a thing of beauty. I was walking with my daughters in a mature maple woods (Blackberry Maples FP in Kane County) and couldn't help thinking how nice a course there would be. The canopy was so thick that there was very little in the way of under story. One could almost play there without any clearing at all. The light coming down through the autumn maple leaves was saturated with warm hues and just about glowed.
