Pros: A very well kept course with nice baskets. Has mutliple tees that requires a variety of shot selections. Several holes offer ace opportunities while others can't be aced. Camping and grilling on site. Overall a great course to play.
Cons: The WATER! 5 out of nine holes can claim your disc. It is also home to a very large flock of geese whose droppings become annoying. Tees need some TLC as well.
Other Thoughts: Between Riversied in St. Cloud and Courses in Fargo you probably won't find a better Disc Golf course in the area.

Pros: -Nice spread out and lengthy course
-Different tees for novice and experienced players
-Well kept park
Cons: -Geese crap in a lot of places
-Champion and novice tees not marked consistently
Other Thoughts: An enjoyable course. Nice flat terrain and a mixture of long open spaces with a bit of tree obstacles make for a nice variety. Champion and novice tees are posted in different ways on certain holes but it isn't a big deal. The park is nice and makes for a good time. Conveniently located right off Hwy 10

Pros: -This is considered the pride of Wadena's parks.
-The course and park are well maintained. Seems to be mowed frequently, as I have spoted fresh mower tracks on a regular basis..
-Not a really busy course, in the 7 years I've been playing it and living in town, I've only seen maybe a handful of other players. So you can take your time at playing and not feel rushed.
-Holes 1-3 and 9 play far enough from the water, so that beginners can practice with little risk of throwing it in the drink.
-Hole 5 is probably the most challengeing, as it has a low hanging tree between the tee and basket. Throw it low or dog lag it around, but be careful or you may be taking a swim.
-Hole 9 plays slightly uphill. other wise most of the course is flat.
-Offers secondary tees for each hole. The secondary tees are in better condition then the primary. Some are easier to spot then others (see cons)
-Does have a camping site on the park. With showers, and laundromat
-Does have picnic shelters with grills.
Cons: -Not to many obstacles to give it a challenge, because it's so open..
-Walks from hole to next tee can be pretty lengthy. Could almost squeeze a couple exrta holes in between them. (see other notes)
-Can get pretty windy, which could pose a challenge to newer players, especially along the water.
-Grass tee's have gotten worn, so care is need when taking a running throw, as to not misstep and twist something.
-Secondary tees not marked on hole map/info poles. So may be a cause as to why they appear to not be used as much.
-Distances marked apear to be diffrent then what is stated.
-Geese hang out, so you may find alot of droppings.
Other Thoughts: -It has come to my attention that the park board has approved 4 new baskets to be placed on the course.Also the chance of cement tee pads and other improvements. I will keep this updated as the final details come to me.
-Tee markers have been repainted. RED:Primary YELLOW: Secondary, with temp flags for easier location.
-Being the halfway point between St. Cloud and Fargo via Us Hwy 10, an oppurtune time to stop and strech your legs, especially if your headed either way to play a few rounds.
-Again this is the pride of the Park Dept. in Wadena, and this is why I have officiated many wedding ceremonies here.
-And if you don't mind murky weedy creeks, wade on in and you may just find a disc or two.

Pros: Longer shots for more challenging play. Tees and baskets in good shape. Never windy becuase it is nestled in sheltered river.
Cons: Because the course is along the river, lost disc will occur. Lots of goose grease.
