Pros: The course really takes off at #6, a blind hole that starts flat and then slopes downhill dramatically toward water. You must cross that water to 7.
The rest of the course is flat out magnificent, with major elevation changes, a brook of some sort winding through, and large piles of dirt from some excavations long ago that are major obstacles on many of the pins.

The tee signs are quite excellent and accurate. There is only one tee for each hole, but that's fine because the land is used so well and each of the pin placements is exceptional.
Cons: Both pins were in place on many of the holes, but not all of them. It was easy to distinguish long and short because the short were always Disccatchers (this is a con, as that yellow band at the top should be banned from use) and the long pins were some form of Mach. Some consistency to what remains in the ground would be nice.

The first 5 holes aren't that easy to follow and aren't a great use of the land. Most are simply very long. There are very long walks between holes and the only reason I knew how to get to #6 was that I saw it because I went to #7 to start my round by mistake (otherwise, you have no idea where to go from #5 and you certainly have no idea where the first tee is from the kiosk).

This would be a perfect course if not for that. If there were some way to eliminate the first 5 holes and find some part of that woods to put 5 holes in, it would be a perfect course.

Pros: Great course, lots of technical shots and beautiful scenery. There are at least 2 pin settings for each hole and some have double pins in to let you chose which basket you would rather go after. Free camping, tons of grills built in to each campsite. Only minutes form the Wobegon Trail and within distance of dozens of other courses in the area. These pins remain in year round and the area Disc Golf Club hold an Ice Bowl every January in the snow. So bring out your white discs lol.
Cons: It can become a little crowded once SJU and CSB schools are in session. Also during the summer watch out on holes 6 and 7 for people fishing in the pod for sunfish. Yep there is traffic to the compost site but it was there first and since the course is run by the city and is free, you'll just have to wait 10 seconds for the car to pass the road if you meet it on hole 10.
Other Thoughts: There is no manure along the course. There is a compost area which can smell a bit funky, but only while you tee off on hole 12. If you can't stand nature then you may want to stick to the Wii disc golf.

Pros: Got my first ace here! Very fun and technical course especially on the back 9. some nice water holes with the stream flowing through. multiple pin location on a few holes.
Cons: Somewhat of a challenge to navigate the course on the first time out.
Other Thoughts: Overall a awesome public course that will be fun for all skill levels!

Pros: - Variety of holes and shots
- Multiple pin positions
- Fun water hazards
- Practice basket
- Great tee boxes
- Brand New Signs are wonderful! (Update)
- Frequent pin changes throughout the season
Cons: - Tons of poison Ivy
- Course retains water after rain and early spring
- Manure pile is a pain
- Walk from 5-6 could be confusing for some non-locals.
Other Thoughts: If you play it in the late fall this course is simply wonderful. The bugs have gone away, the standing water has subsided, and the changing trees make this a truly amazing course. As a local who plays the course a lot, I recommend all to play this course in the fall.
