Pros: Clean and very well kept up. Nice for a long day out. Great for practicing to keep on the fairway or your in the bush. Holes were marked pretty well.
Cons: Lot of long, out in the open holes. Not enough obstacles (trees,water, etc.).
Other Thoughts: Got poison ivy! Great course for finding discs. Bring water its a long one.

Pros: -Long open holes
-Hard to loose disc
-Non busy
-Good Elevation holes
-Quality baskets
I just played this course yesterday and what can I say wow! I never experience a course like this the couple of years I played. The front 9 is really hard for people that can throw an average drive. It is really good for practicing long drives, and your short game. The back 9 is a lot i mean a lot more exciting because of the up hill and down hill holes. This 9 really makes you think of should i throw my driver or mid range. Diversity is the key of the this course from the trees blocking some part of the hole to endless fields of grass.
Cons: -No tee pads
-Pay to play
-No signs guiding to the next hole
-Few players
-Knowing your starting point of drive
-Thorny bushes
-Tall grass
-Long walks from going to front 9 to back 9 and from hole 18 back to your car
This course is not for beginners, if it is your first time disc golfing you are not going to like this sport (shame on you). Considering that the course doesnt have any tee pads there is a dirt spots that shows were to start on the back 9, but it is bumpy and has sticks and stones that might make you slip. The hardest part of this course is obviously the long holes. The average distance of the front 9 is 425ft which its hard to get par if your playing with 3's but for me I got 4 strokes almost every hole on the front. The last thing that made me a little mad about is too much garbage on the course.
Other Thoughts: For playing only a couple of years I usually play only a couple of courses I like, but this really stands out because it brings a different aspect to my game. From the elevation to long and frustrating holes. Since it is a pay to play game a lot of people dont pay because of people breaking into the money box. Just think of it if people pay and people dont steal the course will have enough money to upgrade. Im not going to talk about the holes since i want you people to go out and experience it yourself everybody have different style of playing. For me this is a good way to improve your game if you are dedicated to disc golf.

 Rolling Prairie Terrain with some trees

Pros: 1) Beginner friendly, yet has enough challenges to keep a good player interested. The first 5 holes are in wide open prairies. They have mowed fairways and taller rough on the outside of the fairway but it would be tough to lose your disc there.

2) Has a decent variety in distance. No really short holes which is nice, I think every hole is at least 200-225' or so. Closing hole is about 500', and when I played it was dead into the wind.

3) Nice use of terrain and elevation changes. #9 is a pretty awesome hole putting you at the top of a large peak throwing out of the woods over a valley to a basket halfway up the hill on the other side of the valley (not a huge dropoff, but it is significant).

4) Uses the perimteter woods on quite a few hole, despite the open fairway has the baskets tucked around corners, some allowing for a small entrance to the basket.

5) Nice baskets and a post by every tee.

Cons: 1) Long walk from 18 back to the parking lot, and if you played all 18 even still a further walk back to where the paybox is by the first hole. Not a big deal but it does feel strange.

2) Not enough challenge on the prairie areas. I would like to see a handful of trees planted in there to help to make it a little more difficult. I played with the designer of the course and he said they have planted hundred and hundres of trees but they mow over them every year when they mow the prairie area down.

3) Teepads are generally ok, but a handful of them are worn down to gravel/dirt with no alternative but to throw from those areas. Would be nasty if wet (but it is the Kettle Moraine area so it probably never gets wet.

4) The rough areas don't really change how you play the hole, just throw righ at the basket and cut down some distance.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course quite a bit. It was extremely windy and a little chilly when I played it, and that adds tot he challenge of this course. I worked at the golf course 1 block east of this course for like 4 years and it was always windy there. It is one of the higher points in Washington County so the wind always whips through there.

Kindof surprised the county charges for this usage of this course. The designer said the money collected goes directly to improvements like hopefully concrete teepads sometime. It is a good course for throwing some long bombs, and doesn;t require a whole lot of accurate midrange shots. Throw the drive where you need to and have a putt for birdie.
