Pros: nice use of available space (the designer got the most out of the park as far as layout is concerned)
bathroom on site (open only in summer months. other wise it is locked up)
a relatively quick play (15 to 20 minutes if flying solo and not having to wait for groups ahead of you)
can be on the technical side if your into that (lots of trees but not especially thick like some wooded courses)
probably wont lose any discs here unless you do something crazy off the box on holes 2, 3, and 4 to end up in the locked fence area around the water tower

Cons: can get crowded. I think that that is because of the lack of good courses to play within the Hutchinson area (Glencoe course sucks, Lake Dale course north of Dassel is laughable. the best alternative is to drive 40 minutes east and hit up the Crown College course just outside of St. Bonni or head north to St. Augusta or Annandale). If someone were to build a nice 18 holer within close proximity to Hutchinson then I think it would help to alleviate much of the problem (plenty of possible locations exist)

in the past I've come to notice that when playing holes 8 and 9 there is a house across the street that often has people hanging out in the yard who seem to have a taste for the wild side. lol. probably not a big deal but at the same time I can't help but to think that there activities might not always fall inline with that of the law (a minor distraction)
Other Thoughts: the 9 holes in the park provide very good entertainment and will challenge you to throw with distance while trying to avoid trees on the majority of holes (this is especially true on hole 5). hole 6 is your ace hole........PLAY IT!

Pros: Great course for beginners. Lots of manageable holes as far as distance but always technical for advanced players. A great blend of variety that caters to any play style and allows for various shots. Very easy to find and accessible; not really any serious hazards to consider except the possibility of throwing over the fence around the water tower near holes 3 and 4.
Cons: Very heavy traffic. If you're not local, try your luck in the Twin Cities or St. Cloud. Between 3 and 7 pm on weekdays you will be stuck behind large groups. This is my only real complaint about this course, as overall it's very comfortable and not intimidating.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find it forgiving, intermediate players a welcomed challenge, and advanced players a relaxing course with a lovely walk and shady grass with a good technical aspect to keep your game up. 6 of the in-laying pins will be moved summer of 2010.

Pros: -Nice tee boxes and chains.
-Maps on every hole, no time spent looking for the hole.
-Challenging with no guaranteed birdies.
-No real hazards to lose discs on.
-Two basket locations per whole.
-Pretty clean, garbages here and there.
-Two shelters and a bathroom for amenities.
-Huge mature trees, it is nice and shady. A pleasant area.
Cons: -Holes are mostly all similar in length.
-Only 9 holes, wish it was longer.
-Heavy traffic in summer.
Other Thoughts: This course doesnt do anything that is overly original but it is a fun, relativly simple course. I have played it time and again simply because its in my home town. I would say it is more of a novice/amateur level and anybody too good might not find it interesting. It is quite easy to get 3s on this course but it takes skill to birdie multiple holes. The holes aren't really long or challenging but if you hit one tree you won't get a birdie. Worth a stop!
