Good Course for Beginners
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Short little 9 hole (free) course that is a great place to take kids and/or beginners to learn the basics.
1) Concrete tees - maybe a bit on the short side, but perfectly acceptable for someone learning the basics. Baskets & signage are also in good condition.
2) Amenities - this course is located in a nice, clean neighborhood park, with a well-cared for shelter in the center that has bathrooms. There is even a molded concrete "cornhole" setup present!
3) Being what it is, I will consider the relative ease of the course a plus - there are a few holes where you'll have to work around an obstacle or two, but this is mostly a "toss it right at the basket" course that won't discourage beginners.
Cons: The only real gripe I have with this course is the drainage - the open field that this course circles around can get really swampy and wet during the spring thaw and/or after rains (wet areas big enough to lose discs in, I've found a few!), so be prepared for this. Holes 4 through maybe 8 or so (going off memory from spring) come directly in contact with the wet field.
Other Thoughts: Spassland will certainly not be a challenge to skilled players (it's not tough to notch birdies here), but it's a good beginner course in a well cared for, clean environment. Course is also located fairly close to other, better courses, so if you're in the area and want to make a day of discing, you could do worse than coming to Spassland to warm up your arm/test your accuracy before hitting up the more challenging Dretzka or Brown Deer.

Beginner or Warm-Up Friendly
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Very easy to navigate
Short, open holes perfect for beginners or a putter practice round
Well maintained park
Cons: After a rain, teepads and other low areas of the park can become flooded easily even days later
Sometimes unaware park-goers with dogs or children will stray into the fairways of some holes.
Other Thoughts: Perfect course to bring new people to try out the game and #growthesport

perfect warmup course
Pros: PERFECT warm up course. just a few exits past dredzka park on highway 45 when coming from milwaukee. holes are extremely short but it is the perfect opportunity to throw 9 very quick holes before playing 18 or 27 at dredska. hardly anyone is ever there and i have never waited to play on any hole. not challenging but it is a great place to warm up and move on over to dredska and be able to throw a good round right off the bat.
Cons: holes are very short and not challenging. every whole is a virtual straight-away with no trees or anything in the way. baskets are very easy to overthrow by a long shot with a driver by any decent player.
Other Thoughts: although many good players skip this course because it is not challenging, i personally recommend trying this course out as a warm up or to work on your short range game. it is located in the back of a quiet neighborhood and while is does not challenge me at all i still play here often.

Beginner / Kid course.
Pros: This course is in a nice clean park that has good tee signs & concrete tees. Maintenance is usually top notch & the tee signs / pads are in great shape as they are rarely vandalized. I would recommend beginners & younger players to play here to get a feel for the game. For the more seasoned player it's good for a warm-up or practice round before playing a full round at the nearby larger courses. This course is open in winter.
Cons: Short holes (155 - 236 ft), straight open shots, & lack of multiple placements. You can go through this course twice in an hours time & it's a multipurpose field in which you might run into other park users.
Other Thoughts: All in all it's not a terrible course, it uses the available space fairly well, only rarely crossing into other park activity space (baseball diamond & running track). I'd recommend this course to a beginner / younger player or as a practice area for more experienced player.

Pros: This is a very beginner course where novice disc golfers can practice.
The signs, teepads, and pins are in good condition.
This course is open for winter, which is nice since most of the courses in the area close for at least part of the winter months
Cons: There are about 6 trees as obstacles on the entire course. All of the holes are less than 240 feet. Nothing too complicated...or too fun for non beginner golfers
Other Thoughts: This course was designed to be a family oriented, beginner course. That is exactly what it is. It almost seems too easy, if I was just starting disc golf I think I would want at least a few more challenges than this course has to offer.
Don't expect anything from this 9 holer - unless you're just beginning disc golf and need an easy course to help practice.

Pros: -decent signage
-nice cement tee pads
Cons: -nine holes(given)
-open pin placements
Other Thoughts: A nice little nine hole course in a community park in Germantown. Not much to really write about. All holes are between 180 and 230. Bring a mid range and a putter. All nine holes are straight shots with the exception of hole 1 where you have to slightly bend it around a tree or two.
This is the epitamy of a beginners course. Set up for a quick play(did it in under 20) and a place to teach and/or practice. It is in pretty good shape and shouldn't be mistaken for a poorly maintained course, because it's not. Kudos for the people who got this little setup in a community park where there was previously only open fields and a baseball diamond.
