A walk in the woods
Pros: -Very nice wooded course, a good mix of straight, anhyzer and hyzer shots
-Mostly flat but a few holes have slight elevation changes in the middle of the holes
-Nice tight fairways on almost all holes, they require a lot of accuracy.
-Alternate pin locations
-Easy to navigate with paths from pins to next tee pads. But you get this great feeling of solitude at this course
-Practice basket by parking lot
-Some garbage cans on course
-Some natural "benches"
Cons: -Course gets a little redundant, which is a pretty common con for all courses that are completely in the woods
-No facilities (no bathrooms, water, pretty small parking area)
-Course was a bit on the short side. Local knowledge says that course lengthens and toughens substantially when pins are in the B placement
-Vandals have been a nuisance in the past, they pulled 14 out of the ground and threw it in a ravine
-I really don't like the signage at peoria area parks, this course had small yellow metal signs with a tee and a basket with a suggested route and hole length, sufficient but they don't depict any of the prominent hole landmarks. So it can show you anhyzer, but around which tree?
Other Thoughts: I liked this course a lot, it was a bit littered. But overall it was really pretty with a ton of pine and hardwood trees. I can't wait to play it in B position. I loved the privacy and solitude at this park.

ICC College Frolf Course
Pros: This course was very fun to play. I played this course after I played the one in Washington and it's an entirely different world here even though it's only a ten minute drive away. It's very obvious that the disc golfers of Peoria love the sport because they take such good care of the courses. This course has a lot of trees as it's in a little forest and I'm pretty sure I hit at least 20 of them, haha.
The course is very easy to find because the practice basket (which had a little 10 feet radius green around it) is in the middle of the field touching the parking lot for the course.
It's impossible to get lost while navigating this course because the whole course follows a beautiful trail through the forest. I thought that it was pretty cool.
Cons: There was a lot of litter here, which made me a little sad. Some of the signs by the tees were missing and some of them had been written on with marker. As has been said before, the holes seem to get redundant very quickly because the whole course is in the forest area.
Other Thoughts: It's great that there's so many courses in such a little area in Peoria, but if you only have time to play one 18-hole course, I'd head down to Morton and play the Northwoods Park. This one doesn't have that much of a variety of shots and hitting trees gets very frustrating very quickly.

Cold and Windy
Pros: Course was well maintained. Easy to navigate. Course offered a wide range of shots left, right, straight but not much elevation changes unless you happen to fall into one of the ravines. Very wooded course which makes for more technical types of shots to be made. The few holes in the pine forest where especially nice as it felt like a totally different area. Plenty of trash cans out and about to keep the place clean.
Cons: Few of the baskets were damaged (Still playable), and a few tee signs were missing or missing distance information. A course map out front would have been nice as well.
Other Thoughts: This was a very nice course to hit up while the girlfriend passed and went shopping with her mom since it was damn near freezing out. Like the easy access parking and the practice basket as well.

The Educated Woods
Pros: Well maintained course. Signs, tees, and baskets are all in tip top shape. A healthy variety of right/left handed holes. Being that the course is heavily wooded (and that it is), a player must be up for the challenge of throwing distance shots down tight & narrow fairways. Beginners shouldn't worry also, throws in the wooded areas can be easily made up.
Cons: Course begins to become redundant being that almost every shot is in the woods throwing down a narrow fairway either to the right or left.
Other Thoughts: Overall enjoyable course. Few courses within short driving distance of the course making it perfect for a day of disc golf for "travelers".
