Pros: Very fun course to play. Front 9 has some elevation changes combined with water and alot of oak trees. Back 9 is more open and longer with pine trees coming into play. Excellent ground for rollers. Good variety of holes.
Cons: Tough to say anything bad about this place. Its a par 54. The park definitely has enough land to redesign the course and make championship par 60+ course.

Pros: Bring your A game! This one is not for the casual disc golfer. This is hardcore, man!

I am not used to elevation changes as dramatic as the front 9 of this course provides, so this was rather challenging.

Special props go out whenever the groundscrew is dedicated and vigilant like this one to not only mow the holes like they do but also to alternate the pin placements on a timely manner.

Hole 2 is usually a very, very cautionary hole because it's placed close to a steep cliff. Yet another example of elevation change at work!

Hole 5 is an island. If you par this (par = 3 shots) you should be in good shape the rest of the course. If you bogey this hole, then you are in contention....

Good mix of holes. The front and back halves differ dramatically! If you have a rough front nine, you can make up ground on the back nine.

There are multitudes of lost discs to be found just need to know where to look.

There are a few blinds drives that, if you've never played this course, you'd need to take a look-see.
Cons: You can lose a disc on the front 9 VERY quickly. For example, on Hole 1, a few years ago I launched my red 170 g Quarter K and it sailed straight....past the basket.....past the shrubs....and right into the drink. Water hazards are paramount on the first few holes.

If you get behind on this course, you might not be able to make up ground. There are only a select few holes that allow you to birdie sans a magnificent shot.

There is a walk/jog path that goes thru the front 9. Beware the old ladies who will come across your throw on holes 3 - 7.
Other Thoughts: Nims Park is not far away. That place will make you feel good about yourself ( you can play that park with your putter because each hole is a par 3 150 - 200 ft course). If you are in the general area, then stop by! This course will test you!

The Marathon station down the road sells discs. There's also a decent selection of fast foods near the course.

Pros: large trees, elevation changes, a shot over a creek, 3 pin locations on all holes, baskets are changed around every third week.
Cons: the walking path
Other Thoughts: Very nice course in a beautiful park with lots more to offer for the family if you bring them with.

Pros: Challenging. Plays next to Rock River, which provides for a unique terrain. Large trees. Interesting layout and use of land. Easy to navigate. Accuracy and shot variety a must to play well.
Cons: The teepads although long are very skinny.
Other Thoughts: Alot of fun to play and worth making a detour to play.

Pros: Great course with all types of shots. Concrete tee pads, signs, 3 pin placements, and the course was in great condition! This course rocked!
Cons: The bathrooms were nasty...
Other Thoughts: Best course I've played! Number 5 is an island hole, one of the best holes in the state!

Pros: Awesome course. I like it because there isn't much "mud" is basically all grass, even in the wooded areas. I really enjoyed the park as well.
Cons: Confusing at first as to where holes are, but there is a map up near hole 1.
