Pros: Clean park, friendly locals, easy to navigate, nice variety of holes.
Cons: Nothing special about any hole in particular. Course is tucked away with little signage to tee #1. Overlaps some common park areas, but secluded for the most part.
Other Thoughts: Like the nearby Dretska Park which I played the same day while visiting Milwaukee, Brown Deer is a decent course with little to offer above the average.
That said, it was for the most part a well-maintained course with enough challenges and thought-out technical holes to keep you interested.
Little in the way of elevation changes. Locals were friendly. No water fountains or nearby bathrooms I could find.
Full community park with amenities for non discers. Good mix of open & technical holes, and stays away from other park-goers for the most part.
I preferred Brown Deer over Dretska, but would put neither in my faves list. That said, a great course for locals and if you want to get a round in if visiting the area, it's a solid, if average, course.

Pros: - Moderately wooded test accuracy and shot shaping
- Nice variety between open holes and wooded holes
- Cross winds can provide an interesting challenge in open areas
- Even after rain the course was not to muddy
Cons: - Holes are either miss numbered or not numbered. (i.e. Hole 16 had a sticker that said hole 1)
- Course is missing signed to indicate where a hole is located.
- Broken glass around multiple tees
- People from the soccer field parked their cars on the grass between the tees and holes
- There is no signage to direct you to the next hole
- The holes can jump around.. (i.e Holes 1 and 2 and no where near hole 3)
- Course is very flat
- People from the soccer fields will wander into the field of play and just stand in the way.
- Hole height felt inconsistent. Some holes felt to low to the ground, and a couple felt as if they were to high off the ground.
Other Thoughts: I was actually very surprised by the course after reading past reviews. Some friends and I made a trip to Milwaukee from Joliet area of IL and was very disappointed with this course due to maintenance and lack of signage. We spent more time trying to navigate around the front 9 then we did playing. The course did become easier to navigate on the back 9.
While the course does provide for some challenging play I would not make a second trip back to the course. If I were in the Milwaukee area again I would stick to playing Dretzka.
If your going to play the course I would also bring some deep woods off as the bugs can be horrible.

Trees are humbling...
Pros: -challenging course.
-nice tee pads.
-alt pin placements are nice, & change hole completely.
-lot's of shade on the warmer days. (comes at the cost of a lot of trees though)
-some shots are just grip it & rip it.
-some tight control shots as well.
-well rounded, tough 18 to play.
-bathroom near several holes. (the boat house thing)
-surprisingly, there are not many mosquitoes in this park.
Cons: -tons of trees, not really a beginner course.
-lots of traffic on the soccer fields in the summer, but it really only effects 2, maybe 3 holes.
-could use some signage updating.
-I'm of the mind they need to remove that tree blocking 1... (how about you?)
Other Thoughts: This is one of the first courses I played on regularly when I picked up some discs again in '07.
Nice 18 hole course to play. Starting here, then hitting Dretzka, a few miles away, is a good afternoon of throwing plastic. Browendeer kicks your ass, then you have the game of your life @ Dretzka.
