Kops Park, Milwaukee WI Is it a course? Should it be listed on DGCR?

Ok I want to hear from everyone not just the negative people posting in some of the threads. I listed it and am glad it is on the site. So far 7 people liked my review and thus thee are seven people who are also glad this is listed on this site, regardless of whether or not they consider it a course.

While I wouldn't consider it a course, per se, I still think it should be listed and described properly, as you do in your review.

Yes this should be in the DGCR directory. Why not? How else will people know about it if it is not in a directory? Thanks for listing it!

No, it is not a course (yet). A "course" in any use of the word implies doing things in a specified order - along a certain determined path or direction.

I have not been there yet and do not know the lay of the land, but if it would be possible to add several (9?) numbered tee markers I would consider it a course.

It doesn't look like there is room to do anymore with this park. The athletic fields are surrounding the area nad tennis courts if I remember right. It would only tarnish the 2 holes that are there.

Don't go there expecting it to be something wonderful. If you are on the search to play a bunch of 1.5 disc courses still don't come here because it is only 2 baskets. But if you want a place to practice while you visit aunt betty in milwaukee and can't get to any of the other courses in the area go here!

I definitely think it belongs on the site, I would want to know about it if it was near me. As long as the course description makes it clear what is there and what isn't, I lean more toward the directory being complete rather than exclusive.

ah but Mike, the question is why haven't you reviewed the 18 hole Willow Run in Cedarburg/Fredonia or even an attempt to locate the lost Greenfield Park Disc Golf course in Brookfield to review? Slacker!

Does not belong here.
Ah, nevermind, it would be useful to know it's there, as long as it's clear it's a 2-holer.

Does it have 9 tees for each pin? I have a setup like that in my yard - 3 pins and 6 tees each - my yard is 10 acres though, 1320' deep and 330' wide with 80 foot elevation change across 3 waterways.

You know if I had heard anything about them I would have tried to find them. I played Duck Pond Rec. Area if that isn't proof enough to my addiction and desire to play as many courses as possible.
