Pros: -Both long and short holes
-Challenging while staying fun
-Great views along the Mississippi

-2 practice baskets, great when busy
-Great Location
-Baskets change positions lots
Cons: -Gets busy at times and have to watch out for people.

Other Thoughts: Awesome course to play. If you are in the St Cloud area check it out. Sometimes there are loads of college kids so go during the times of school and you will have plenty of time to throw extras. Trees make course very tough but worth it.

Pros: One of the first things that struck me about this course is the variety of shots needed. No two holes look anywhere near the same. There are large amounts of elevation change on a few holes and small amounts on most.
There are at least a couple different pin placements for each hole here, so make sure you find out where it is before you throw or you could be adding a few strokes.
The signs are somewhat informative, they have distances and pin locations but they're a foot off the ground.
Nice ammenities, picnic area nearby, restrooms.
There's a good amount of trees that force you to choose your lines carefully. The amount of trees plus the elevation change make for very interesting shots.
Very beautiful park.
Cons: It is a little complicated to navigate around the course if it is your first time playing. This includes trying to find where the next tee is as well as where the hole you're trying to throw at is.
Very crowded if it's a nice day. Good luck finishing in less than an hour and a half if it's crowded. Along with having a lot of people use the park, there are a lot of really bad players that play, which increase your chance of getting hit by errant throws.
Other Thoughts: There is some really nice natural beauty on a few holes. Behind the 8th tee I think is a spectacular view of the Mississippi.

Pros: Well groomed park. Majestic oaks cover the entire park making a great disc golf setting. Offers shade in hot summer days. All cement tee off's and there are three different pin placements per hole. There is a map on each tee off with distances for each pin placement. Course is different every day. Layout is outstanding. Flows well from hole to hole offering every shot imaginable. Park runs next to Mississippi River. Elevation changes make for unique holes. (I think hole number ten runs down a hill with woodchips creating a fairway. Beautiful)
Cons: One hole was down all summer due to soil erosion on a hill. Not much can be done except take the traffic off the hole. Can be busy on weekends.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful course in a very spacious park. Course able to hold major tournaments. Definitely worth the drive from the cities to play this and others in the area. Challenging for everyone. Very fun course to play!Chalenging for everyone.
