Pros: Very long and open course. It is a great compliment to the other course across town(Hoyt Grove). Gives a player a chance to see how much distance he/she can achieve without worring too much about hitting a tree. Didn't lose too many discs after playing this course for a semester. Nice shot variety, distance, and all par 3's, what else can you ask for?
Cons: The walk between some holes are too far. Designer should have kept that in mind. Missing a few tee pads here and there and some of the baskets are getting pretty old. The wind is always blowing out there, but it is with you half the time.
Other Thoughts: Plays around a nice lake and it is usually always kept nice and mowed. Bring a water disc if you feel like giving seven a shot. There is an alternate tee on the other side of the pond though. Print off the map and bring if it is your first time. It helped me.

Pros: Very nice scenery.
you're located in a city park, however the disc golf course is only used for disc golf (no randos walking across course)
Good course if you can throw pretty far
not too busy.
Cons: 10 is a monster, and right next to a fairly busy street
rather than a great layout, they use distance as the challanging factor
Other Thoughts: one hole shoots across a small pond (inlet from the lake), however there is an alternate tee box across the bridge

Pros: Lots of parking and not really any wait to play. Good mix of short and long holes, with a good mix of very open holes and some technical ones. Nice Tees and baskets.
Cons: Every hole is par three. So a roughly 275 foot hole (hole 17) in the open is the same as a 725 foot hole (hole 10). some holes are missing signs now and hole 9 is missing a tee and is replaced by a huge hole =/.
Other Thoughts: There is a good mix of new and advanced players and by hole 16 there is a house that has free water and a siting area available. also there is only one place to really lose a disc which is hole 7 because its a water shot, but they have a alternate tee if you want to avoid it......most use the alternate tee because its a crazy shot.

Pros: For the most part a very open course with few trees or areas where you can lose your disc. Good for long drives.
Cons: Few trees means less shade to hide from the sweltering OK summers. No benches and rare trashcans. Hole 7 has such a small margin for error that the alternate tee is almost always used.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very relaxing course to play. Not much challenge if you can throw it straight and far.

Pros: Definitely had some recent renovations this year. All of the missing signs have been replaced with tournament markers that provide the hole number and distance to the pin. This course is very open and offers several long holes that test your driving abilities.
Cons: Aside from the water hole (#7, which can now be played from an alternate tee), passing cars near some of the later holes, and random trees that seem to devour discs, not too much to complain about. Be careful when finishing up on the last stretch to avoid hurling your disc to the left of the course as it is populated with houses.
Other Thoughts: Overall this was a good course. Don't plan on going on Sundays in the afternoon unless you plan on playing in a tournament.

Pros: Nice course in a large park. Mostly medium to long holes with a lot of different shots. Hole #7 lake shot, but has alt. tee across bridge. Hole #10 729ft hard to make par on this one. Some signs and concrete tees. A lot of places to start and finish at as hole 1 gets backed up at time.
Cons: A few switchbacks from hole to next tee, hard to find the next one- Holes 1 and 2, Holes 8 and 9. Missing signs, Short tees,
Other Thoughts: A good course and if you have trouble ask someone they will help you find your way around.

Pros: It has cement tee pads, well mowed grass and features mostly medium to long holes with not many obstacles but a good usage of them. One over-the-lake shot with a bridge to get to the basket. Has road OB, a few tight holes near the end.
Cons: Incredibly tough to navigate- I spent more time figuring out where the next hole was than playing the hole. Tee signs mostly damaged, yet no one has ever bothered to put the hole # on the left behind post, or basket. One tee faces the wrong way and caused confusion, #2 backtracks back by #1. Not very challenging or technical.
Other Thoughts: Needs some serious fixing up to get above a 2.5 rating.

Pros: Decent mix of holes, a shot over the neck of the lake, a couple of blind baskets, good use of the obstacles that are available, a 700' downhill hole that begs to be rolled if you're brave enough. Beautiful park, and lost of opportunities to rip some big drives.
Cons: Many of the tee signs are damaged or missing making navigation difficult at times if you don't already know the course. To get to the 2nd hole you have to backtrack along the first, the tee is right by the parking lot. You also need to backtrack from hole 8 to 9.
Other Thoughts: This is a very enjoyable course that isn't too tough when starting out but also shouldn't become too easy once your skill level increases. Bring discs you like to throw into the wind, because the wind coming off of the lake can get pretty bad. If you are in Stillwater and have time for one course, this is it.

Pros: A very dynamic course with a wide variety of terrain (walls, trees, long fairways, and a lake). This course will challenge all player levels. The course is very open and well marked. The grounds are well mowed. This is one the the best courses I've played regarding diversity and quality. All tees are concrete except one.
Cons: A few holes are extremely long and for beginners it might take several throws to reach the pin. Some of the tee markers have been destroyed/are missing which make finding the next hole a little more difficult if it is your first time on the course and you are not following another group.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a great course. Well taken care of and well used. The difficulty can be dictated by how techinical of shots you take (threading trees, crossing an inlet of the lake - really tough shot that you may want to use a floating disc on, and dropping disc around blind corners).
