Underappreciated course in nice city
Pros: Very grippy, nice sized teepads on every hole. Chainstar baskets that catch very well on each hole. Multiple pin locations on holes 1, 3, 8, 10, 14, and 17 i believe. Nice bridges crossing the creek that runs throughout the course. Navigation on this course is a non issue, The flow is very easy to figure out. Wood tee signs with hole number, basic hole direction and par at each hole. Garbage pails throughout the course and is a very clean course as well. Never busy here even though its the better, more challenging of the 2 courses in Marshfield. The city is constantly improving the course too by removing trees and brush, putting wood chips down, etc. Restrooms at the beginning of the course next to the playground. Theres a solid mix of left, straight and right turning shots here. Its virtually impossible to lose a disc here unless you bury one in the snow in the winter. A few holes offer some ace opportunities and most are birdieable. Although its in the middle of Marshfield there are always deer walking around the course. They are very used to people so you can get very close to them too which is pretty cool. All in all a fun 18 hole in a nice city. I'd definately recommend checking this place out if you're in the area.
Cons: No elevation on this course. It would've been nice if they had used the creek that runs through the park on at least one hole as an extra challenge. A few holes don't have much of a discernable lane to the pin, you just have to chuck it and hope to not hit a tree. The teepads in the woods stay pretty wet for a long time after any kind of rain and can get a little slick.
Other Thoughts: I live about 2 blocks from this course so i've played it a ton of times and really like it. I didn't care for it at first with some of the tight lanes out of the woods seeming almost impossible. However the city has done a very good job over the span that the course has been in in improving the design. The 9 hole Wildwood park is only about 5 minutes down the main road thru town, and North Park of Wood County which is 20 holes is only about 15 to 20 minutes south as well. That combined with Stevens point being about 30 minutes away and Big Eau Pleine too makes for a lot of courses nearby to have a great day of discin.
