Pros: The course is heavily wooded and very challenging. Great scenery and upkeep.
Cons: There are a lot of trees so expect to be frustrated if your not accurate with your shots.
Other Thoughts: Would definitely go there to play again.

Very Unique Course
Pros: -Very unique holes in the woods with a lot of character
-The course is fun to play, with some chances at some aces as well
-Very scenic park, and well maintained
-Another phenomenal design from Greg Nettles
-No true signature hole, which I would term a pro because there are many holes that are really creative (holes 4, 13, 17)
Cons: -A few of the holes have extremely tight fairways. The gap on hole 14 isn't more than 5 feet, and hole's 2 and 3 have extremely narrow alleys to throw through. However, those holes are fairly short.
-Hole 18 is a disappointing finishing hole.
Other Thoughts: This course is a true test of accuracy - there are only a few holes where a power arm may be a benefit to you. This course is a great test and a lot of fun to play.

A challenge for Pros, Scary for Newbs
Pros: --This course forces you to learn many different types of shots. This course will show you where your game is deficient.
--lots of shade for those hot days.
--Pit toilet halfway between Holes 8 & 9 near the playground. (which is also near 11's teepad.)
--All of the locals I've met have been really nice.
--The soft-serve icecream at the local icecream shop is great.
Cons: -- I wouldn't recomend this course to really new players, it may frustrait them badly.
-- A couple of the holes are poke and hopes for all but the most accurate throwers. (Two's main fairway is only about 6 or 7 feet wide at one spot, and 14's is only about 4 or 5 feet wide at one spot. If you make it through another gap, it was lucky.)
-- If you play in the winter, you may want to send a spotter out on some of the tighter wooded holes. Discs lost in the snow may not come back to you, even if your name and phone number are on them.
-- Right after the rain, some of the paths are slick with mud.
--Wear Pants in the Summer, unless stinging Nettles don't bother you & you aren't allergic to poison Ivy. It's not IF you go into the nettles/Ivy, it's WHEN.
Other Thoughts: This is my wifes favorite course, because she likes being in the woods. I have a love hate relationship with this course, because while it shows me where I need to and gives me the chance to work on my game; it also shows me how much I really really need to work on my game.

Best Course of Central Illinois
Pros: Heavily wooded and gorgeous course. Bring your A-game and keep your drives low to make it out alive. Only four holes are open enough for any type of shot selection. The rest of the holes, the shots are already selected for you. A few of the fairways only offer a 6' opening at best. #16 is an excellent 'empty the bag' hole to let out some frustration after knocking bark off trees all day.
I've also seen deer here over a dozen times.
Cons: Stinging nettles are prevalent around the course, so make sure you wear long pants and shoes.
After a severe storm holes #15-18 will be flooded. And after the flooding, mosquitoes become a problem.
Some holes are short but very technical.
Other Thoughts: Living only 20 minutes away from Eureka, this is personally my favorite course.
Eureka is also the college hometown of Ronald Reagan!!
