Pros: - Very hard to lose a disc here
- Baskets catch well
- Some elevation changes and good use of limited space
- Credit to the small town of Olin for even having a course
Cons: - No tee pads
- Only sign posts with hole number, no par or yardage
- Baskets to not have hole numbers on them
- All holes are approximately 300 foot par 3's
- Very little shot variety
Other Thoughts: If you lived in, or near, Olin, you'd probably play here regularly, since there's not a lot else close. But, this is not a course you should go out of your way to play. Kind of run down and not a lot of variety in holes, shot-making, etc.

Pros: Nice quiet park with easy parking. First hole right by the entrance and then the rest of the course is fairly easy to follow. Large posts in ground are easy to see. Large trees add to the beauty and challenge on some holes. Decent mix of short/long and right/left shots. Baskets were well placed trying to get the most out of the terrian.
Cons: Just not a big fan of these baskets, although they are in great shape, they just seem cheap. I would have liked better teesigns with distances. The challenge factor here is low.
Other Thoughts: For a town the size of Olin, population about 750, it is surprising that they have a disc golf course. They should get points for that right? Anyway, not a bad little course for a newer player or just a play to throw some discs for a good time. Need a challange, then look elsewhere.

Pros: Nine holes of disc golf with baskets in the ground.
Unworn tees mean you can play a relaxing round of disc; without course being crowded.
Decent design with what they had to work with.
Course a little better than nearby Westview Park (9) in Platteville, Wi.
Cons: No course signs; just post in ground with tee number routed and painted black.
Dirt tees.
Other Thoughts: You won't want to make a special trip here; that's for sure. However, as a course between other courses, during a trip; and simply to cross one of the list; there's nothing wrong with this little course.
