Pros: + Gorgeous view of water from many holes
+ Elevation and water bring challenge
+ Concrete pads
+ Flow of course is well designed
Cons: - Some holes are repetitive
- Playground area can be a concern when busy
- Some signs are vandalized, first time navigation can be an issue
Other Thoughts: Highlights of the course were the water holes for sure, very beautiful views. Some of the holes by the playground area can be an issue to worry about skipping into, but not that bad in general. Some blind holes might require a yell or two to be sure not only golfers are clear but walkers as paths can be close. Very enjoyable course in general, will not disappoint

Pros: Nice variety of distances and difficulties.
Cons: The signs were in bad shape and very hard to read. The course was very confusing to where the next hole was.
Other Thoughts: A very fun course to play at and would definitely recommend.

Pros: Concrete tees with maps.
Multiple pin locations on some of the holes.
Nice and spread out so it doesn't get too backed up when busy.
Good mix of short and long holes, requiring use of accuracy and distance.
Layout has you playing through trees, up and down hills, and along side water.
Park, beach, walking trails, bathrooms, and city pool very close to the course, so there's a lot of activities to keep families busy.
The course is in town, so restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations aren't too far away and the course is easy to find.
Cons: Some of the maps on the tees have been vandalized and/or removed.
Plays through the park and close to a few roads, so occasionally you have to wait on pedestrians and vehicles.
The layout can get a little confusing with a some backtracking on a couple of the later holes.
Since the holes are kind of in sections, split up by roads, hills, or playgrounds, making your way to the next hole can sometimes get confusing.
It's really not too bad, but for someone playing the course for the first time, it's easy to get a bit mixed up.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a very nice course. The layout is challenging enough for intermediate/advanced players without being too challenging for casual or beginning players. The course plays through trees, has elevation changes, and a couple holes play near the water. All that offers a nice variety of holes and adds to the replay value.
There are a ton of things to do in the park. They have a couple nice playgrounds, picnic areas/grills/pavilions, beach, city pool, and lots of other things very near the course.
The course is well maintained by the city of Menomonie, and is an area that has some great courses nearby. This course is very fun and pairs well with Brickyard in Menomonie, Axldog in Boyceville, or even some of the other smaller courses in the area.

Worth the drive
Pros: Makes nice use of terrain, good variety of wooded, open, left, right, and some "chicken" holes where you have to decide to go for a score and risk losing a disc, or play it safe. Tees and baskets are nice, and it's a park so there are bathrooms, water, picnic tables and grills, etc.
Cons: It can be hard to get around the first couple times as it's not real well marked. Some holes play through or real close to other park users, 18 in particular plays right through a picnic area and sometimes just can't be played. The lake and woods provide some opportunities to lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: It's nothing spectacular, but if you don't have fun playing here you must have been trying not to have fun. This course is 40 miles from home but we play it 2 - 3 times a year for sure.

Very Good Park Course
Pros: -Rolling hills create elevation on about ½ the holes making for some rather scenic looking holes.
-Nice variety of wooded and open shots.
-Course maintenance is excellent, nicely mowed fairways, and overall it is not too difficult to find errant throws in the rough.
-Quality baskets with added inner yellow chains, making the baskets "pop" a bit more than usual.
-Playing all of the roads (see cons) and paths as O.B. provides an added challenge throughout the course.
-Concrete tees on all holes.
-Course runs through a relaxed park setting.
-Highlights include: #5 (elevated tee for a scenic 500' shot),#10 (300' shot over two rolling hills),11 (320' down hill shot with O.B road hugging the right side of the fairway) ,12 (540' hole with lake running on the left side, the entire length of the hole. Basket is within 15 feet of the water and on the other side is guarded by two mature pines).
Cons: -Difficult to navigate, no signage.
-Roads border a number of holes so you have to be aware of cars and pedestrians.
-Shot placement not an emphasis for majority of the holes. On most holes you will still be able to save par, even after a poor drive.
-The lake is pretty nasty, especially after mid July.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my all time favorite courses to play. I drive through Menomonie about 3 times a year and always stop to play a round. Admittedly, this is not the most challenging course out there, but by no means is it a pitch and put. I feel it offers a nice compliment to the tight, wooded, Tower Ridge courses for disc golf in the Chippewa Valley. The combination of wooded and open holes make it a perfect park setting course in my mind.

Give it a chance
Pros: At first it doesn't look like much. It starts in a large park with baseball diamonds and a wilderness refuge to the rear of the park. The first two hole of the course are very typical of any disc course but once you get past those it really turns into a nice course. Rolling hills with mature trees make this a nice course to have a great time. Very spread out the course makes it way down a large hill and toward a large lake.
Cons: One hole on the back nine is set dangerously on the top of a large hill. If you throw to the right you will have a hard time locating your disc in the dense brush on the side of the large hill.
Other Thoughts: This course had many beautiful holes despite the look of the course to begin with. It challenges your distance and ability to let it hang out there a ways. I really enjoyed this course.

A wonderfully relaxing cours
Pros: Long sweeping holes make this course very fun and relaxing. The holes are well kept for the most part and have well kept tees and baskets.
You start in the middle of a park, throwing across open fields. from there, you work around a small road and back into a residential area. later, you move to a lightly wooded area and down into a lake side tri-hole set. Finally, you move into a heavily wooded area to finish it off.
This course is wonderful to play, just give it time. In now way should you play this when you are in a rush. It is hard to get done in less than 2 hours, and it lessens the experience if you do so. take a bottle of water, or any drink, get some food before you go out, and simply take your time playing through
Cons: No technical holes to speak of. Every hole uses a long range drive. Most are way to easy to be able to par, as long as you are consistent. This is a course to play to relax, it will not make you an incredibly skilled player
