Pros: -Mach 2 Baskets
-Elevation changes add to course challenge
-Mature trees protect the majority of the pins
-Playground and soccer field for those who don't play disc golf
-By appearance, the course isn't played much, so if you're looking for a quick round in solitude, this could be the place.
Cons: -Natural Tee Pads, in most cases I had to throw from further back to avoid stepping in holes
-Course layout has tee pads and pins a little too close for comfort on several holes. I think it not a good thing to be preparing for a drive, and taking anothers disc to the back of the head, or any other part for that matter
-The majority of the course is in a valley. It was wet with little to no rain for the last week, hate to see what it's like when the sky opens up.
Other Thoughts: This was a fun course to play over lunch. There were branches that were trimmed from the trees by the pins and along the fairways that were cut and left. I assume the City of Long Grove is responsible for the maintenance and that this condition is not the norm. Only get one chance for a first impression. I might play this one again, and I might not.

nice little neighborhood park
Pros: -a great use of available elevation here. 5/9 holes use the valley as elevation.
-Decent hole length, one shorty (number 1) but the rest have decent hole length for the small course area around 250-300.
-Pins are well protected, almost all the pins are surrounded by trees, and many have overhanging limbs to force low shots. Hole 1 was almost surrounded by pines, and hole 8 had a nice line of scrub trees protecting it.
-Course stays away from other park activities. There is a soccer field and a playground which were completely avoided in the layout of the course.
-Some nice shot variety here, I pulled out a small arsenal of shots.
Cons: -Natural teepads, they were pretty slick when I played, but I played back from them and it was fine.
-This course has a ton of overlap in the fairways, some of the that I noticed were 7-8, 3-4-5, 9-4 (somewhat), if this course had more than a group on it, it would be dangerous.
-The course was built along a drainage ditch in the valley, so it was nasty soggy.
Other Thoughts: The course was fun, but I was rather unimpressed by the overlapping holes. As a recreational course, the whole point is to have multiple groups 'recreating', but I think it would just end up in a head injury. I would skip the course if it were being played. If not, it was fun so go play.
