Pros: Fink is located in a very nice neighborhood. The park is flat as a pancake and has tree scattered throughout. It's a very nice park that is taken care of.

Tee #1 is located just west of the parking lot. There is a large sign identifying where the disc golf course is located.

Concrete tee pads.

The baskets are in pretty good shape and have the # located on the bin. I'm not sure what kind of baskets these are. I've never seen them at another course.

The tee signs are pretty good. They have hole description and distance.

Navigation is very simple. This is a great beginner course that does not take long to play.
Cons: Although the tees are concrete they are painted green. They seemed slick.

5 of the 9 holes are in the 295 to 325 foot range. This course is very repetitive.

Fore more skilled players this course will not offer challenge.
Other Thoughts: If you live on the north side of Chicgao or Burbs this is not a bad option. There is another course in Highland Park and nearby Glencoe.

Pros: Teepads have good grip when dry (they're green)

Nice signage

Mature trees all around. They force routes sometimes.

(for me) : Holes 7-9 are rewarding birdies.

The last basket easilly functions as a practice basket

Good for beginners to learn shots

No super long walks between holes and the course leads you right back to your car and the beginning of the course.

Good catching baskets

Right of the highway when you're driving south to Chicago, good for a quick round.

Forces straight shots
Cons: Paths with unaware people throughout the park.

Can get very flooded

Tee pads are not very wide

Many holes are around 300', very short course

Not a lot of shot variety, mostly straight mid shots.

Flat

Mostly Open

Not secluded, on holes 8-9 a building on the left comes into play on really shaked shots
Other Thoughts: If you're playing in Highland Park, play here, NOT Danny Cunniff. Keller in deerfield is another close fun 9.

Go to the back of the park to park.

Summary:

Hole 1 is a dumb wide open 280 easy bird

Hole 2 forces a good straight shot about 300', rewarding bird

Hole 3 forces another straight 280ish

Hole 4 gives you two routes. So short though it is an easy bird

Hole 5 is yet another straight 280 ish

Hole 6 is wide open 280ish

Hole 7 is a little more tricky, but not much. You can throw straight at it, Trees block a big left to right and a big hyzer so a straight shot is the way to go

Hole 8 is a fun one. Over 300 left to right, tough birdie

Hole 9 has two solid routes, straight slight turnover to left of the big tree, or just throw the big hyzer to the right.
