Pros: Well maintained and clean, concrete pads, and well designed holes and long for a nine hole. Mostly open but still somewhat challenging.
Cons: Very dangerous course design, Multi-use park, mostly younger rec players better locals play the better courses in the area
Other Thoughts: This course is a clean, fun, course that has good facilities and gets a lot out of its limited space. It is is a very playable 9 hole.
But be careful though or you could get drilled with a disc. There are teepads and pins located right next to or on fairways. I had a couple of near misses and the locals were telling me about someone who took a disc to the grill.

 Decent practice and easy to play

Pros: Concrete tee pads; always easy to find your disc; bathrooms available; some tees have information; short walks from pins to tees; will allow you practice your weaknesses all round - all backhand, all forehand, all rollers, all thumbers, or all tomahawks could work for 7-8 of the holes - you can still score birdies. (This is usually a con, but for a practice session it's not a bad thing)
Cons: Doesn't require a variety of shots; can be tricky to follow; much too easy to be considered a true 'course'; about half the holes have basically no obstacles, 2-3 have obstacles that are easily avoided with forehand or backhand hyzer; most tees don't have a number or are missing information; very little thought needed to score well
Other Thoughts: Mead is a little course in a neighborhood park. If you go there, you'll have some fun - but mainly because disc golf itself is enjoyable, not because Mead brings out its best. What Mead brings is a course that will provide practice without the frustration of having to constantly look for discs or play holes that force you to use your most matured shot.

A score of 2.0 is considered average. For a course to be considered average, it simply has to force a player to use a relatively wide variety of shots and have holes that make you think about strategy. Mead is an adequate course, but it just doesn't provide that level of play.

I agree with the reviewer that preceded me - Mead is a decent course to play quickly before going somewhere else. (Yulga and Standing Rocks are both close by!)

While this course has its place, I cannot put it in the same class as other courses I have scored as average. For this, Mead is below average - 1.5.

Pros: Great quick course along a beautiful stretch of the Wisconsin River. Concrete pads and nearby grills and tables make it a great place for a day long outing.
Cons: Not very challenging, lack of trees and obstacles. Watch out for goose poop and pedestrians, not to mention the lake that appears in the early season.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun home course because it allows you to work on your game in a very open environment. The course itself isn't worthy of crossing the state for, but other courses in the area are, so stopping by Mead for a warmup is a great idea.
