Pros: Beautiful course, well marked hole 1, concrete pads, most pads marked with signs.
This course takes you through many mature trees and close to waters in beautiful Oak Grove park. I was not expecting the nice distance of some of those holes. It challenges you to take new shots.
Cons: Pads a bit small. The course as a whole lacks distance.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course.

Pros: Cement Tees
Large Variety of Holes
Most Challenging Course in the Area
Cons: Not the best course for beginners
Very muddy in the spring
Other Thoughts: This course is the toughest course in the area, which can be a good or a bad thing. There are several holes where the river comes into play and trees on almost every hole. Other than the mud, the course is well kept and in a nice, shady location.

Pros: Lots of trees keeps this course interesting.
Cement tees are nice.
Good variation of hole lengths.
All the trees help to keep down the wind that North Dakota occasionally has.
Good for all ages, course focuses less on distance and more on different types of shots.
Cons: The tee boxes can be pretty muddy, and the course gets flooded every year.
Other Thoughts: This is my favorite course in the Fargo/Moorhead area. If you hate trees, Woodlawn in Moorhead is for you.

Pros: A challenge to find some holes if your not from the area or know the course to well, as they are obscured by trees and other holes may be close by (Did throw a couple times at the wrong hole)
The last hole is a challenge,550+ ft (I never did find it, even after searching for over 15 minutes, instead I shot at, if I remember correctly the 9th).
Loved the challenge the trees gave me and the river along the course. (risk a dog lag around a tree and feed the disc to the carp, or shoot wide and hope it lands in the open for a clear shot)
Cons: As wet as it is, almost felt like I was in a swamp playing. Advise against wearing sandles and socks.
Some of the signs were hard to read, as they were faded, making it difficult to figure out were the basket was.
Other Thoughts: If it was'nt so wet would rank it higher.

Pros: -Cement tees.
-Signs on most of the holes.
-Nice challenges of large mature trees and water.
-Nice baskets.
-Course layout is good and makes the course both challenging and easy to follow.
-Good variation of distance, more holes on the short side though.
-A few possible hole in one opportunities.
-Not too busy with disc golfers or other citizens.
Cons: -Course is always muddy and wet due to proximity to river.
-Fargo, like the rest of the great plains has a relentless wind that makes disc golfing a challenge if your not from the area.
-Course is on the old side and some signs are missing but otherwise the course is nice.
Other Thoughts: If you are in the Fargo/Moorhead area play this course.

Pros: A variety of shots are needed to avoid the numerous trees and water. Good for any skill level player as there are some long holes and some short holes. Well designed layout makes finding the next tee a breeze. Signs on roughly half of the holes.
Cons: The course is usually muddy no matter when you play it. Also, because it is Fargo, there is nearly always wind, though the trees stop some of it. Could use a little more distance on most holes.
Other Thoughts: some major course changes have been going on lately, like a few trees have been cut down. The disc golf community is trying to put in new basket locations as well as alternate tee pads, to hopefully make this course back into what it used to be.

Pros: very challenge course for new beginners and for intermediate players. Good selection of short to long range holes. Hole 18 is very long for the distant throwers
Cons: floods during the spring and fall. Some of the signs are faded and need some improvement

Pros: The many trees provide a variety of interesting shots, as do the lengths of holes. Short ones good for the newbs, the 500ft+ hole 18 for the long bombers.
Cons: The many trees, but that's just if you don't like a challenge. If your scared of 'em, head to Woodlawn for a wide open stroll in the park.
Other Thoughts: I loved this course when I lived in Fargo. For living in the flatlands, this course kept it interesting.
