1 Helpful / 5 Not
Pros: 1. Great mix of distances...short, medium, and long holes
2. Manicured city park...guys were cutting and weed-eating the day I played...super beautiful!
3. Holes 5 and 23...you want to throw them over and over and over...
4. You have to throw several shots...hyzers, anhyzers, straignt, uphill, downhill, spikes, ceilings...
5. Choices...multiple lines with varying degree of risk and reward on most holes
6. Multiple pin locations
This is easily in my top 5 courses played!
Cons: This course is 900 miles from Denver...wish I could pick the whole thing up and drop it where I live!
Other Thoughts: Highly recommend this course!

"one of the best courses in Illinois"
Pros: -nice signs
-great use of the land for all 24 holes
-trash cans and benches throughout the course
-3-5 placements for each hole
-nice memorial putting area (rip Leo)
-and finally the "Jetman" yea!!
Cons: -the only thing i could think of is the 6 new baskets need to be mach III's(to many spit outs that are dead center)
Other Thoughts: One of the best courses Illinois has to offer it will test even the most advanced players you'll learn how to play disc golf here...Hole 5 is a beautiful downhill blind island green shot(the best hole in Illinois) in my opinion...Hole 8 in the tree placement also known as the "stinky skunk"...Hole 23 the cliff shot a beautiful limestone cliff... Those are just some of the signature holes on this course but there are also many more. If your anywhere close to this course its a must play.

Best Course Iíve Ever Played

Pros: Tricky and well thought out. It requires Power and Finesse throws, left and right fades, this course makes you a better player. With the course being elevated and a wind off the river, always challenging, and scenic.
Cons: The restrooms are poorly maintained and no soap, TP, no mirrors, and that's when unlocked. Women usually complain about the restrooms lacking. This detracts from the usability of not only the course but the park too.
Other Thoughts: I realize the Sterling Park district has budget concerns, but could pony up some dough for better signage, working drinking fountains (they are right near a natural spring) fix up the bathrooms, and plastic trash cans at every tee, or every other tee.....this way people would be more prone to stop littering....and the guy on the ZTR mower could pick up the cans and bottles and throw them in a proper receptacle
instead of mowing over them.
The course is awesome, one of the best courses in the nation, I'm glad this course is my home course. It's been marked as a favorite, wish listed by so many, thee standard by which all other courses are judged by the masses... it's baffling why there aren't more tournaments held there.
