RusselsHeim in the Rain.
Pros: Long and short holes. I got my first 2 birdies there ever playing in Germany...besides the fact.... anyway, Fun course, Challenging shots, played through both woods and open fields. Both present challenges. shallow streams...makes for easy disc fishing. Nice nature walk, and the open fields are kept up for the most part. Baskets are marked with numbers
Cons: Public Park. Today is was raining and we still had people all around...and dog crap was everywhere. NO COURSE LAYOUT. it took us 30minutes to figure out where the 1st tee is and then another two hours just walking throgh the course locating each tee/basket and figuring out where each one was. Only 2 holes had blue signs tacked to trees pointing towards them. TEES ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE UNLESS YOU ARE STANDING ON TOP OF THEM. few are concrete pads. but most are just a wooden plank on the ground. also the address given on thte sight actually takes you to a residential neighborhood....though within the area, you have to cross a street and walk a bit to get to the actual course. Also the holes were very widely spaced and playing within eachother.
Other Thoughts: The course has what seems to be short and long tees on some of them, but due to the intercrossing of the course, identifying where each hole and corresponding tee is was the biggest challenge. very difficult for someone who has never been there, Next time I go, I'm bringing a pad and paper and making a drawing. Also, there are sever planks on they ground where there is nothing written...Confusing... However, all in all it was fun, there was minimal water hazard. other than hole 13, where if you're used to curving it to the left, then use a cheap disc...you'll be heading directly in to a pond. Once again, fun course but difficult to navigate. We never found the basket for the 4th hole....We found the tee however. Also we discovered that the numbers on the baskets actually face in the direction of the tee...

First European Course
Great hole/pin positioning - good variety of forehand/lefty and backhand skill required - good quality baskets. Club website has plenty of information available: www.scheibensuche
Cons: Course seems to be in transition as the course maps posted on the club website match the current hole layout. This made it difficult and at times frustrating for my group to find the next tee pad. This happened throughout the round - in fact, we had to ask a local golfer where the tee pad for hole #5 was located; he pointed out a small marker in the woods on each side of a particular walking path. He explained to me that the course was in transition and I asked him why the website had a course map that was not valid..He did not know. Also, the course seemed to be partially groomed, however, there was a significant patch of nettles on almost every hole which was a common nuisance. Lastly, the current layout had several holes which required backtracking on the fairway and additional walking which seemed unnecessary with the space that is available. Example, after locating playing hole 3, hole 4 played back towards the hole 1 fairway, but hole 5 tee pad was nearby/next to the fairway for hole 3.
Other Thoughts: Seems like the website is updated frequently or at least accessed often - please update course layout maps often to assist with the growth of the sport.

Nice day in the Park
Pros: Easy to get to right off the Autobahn. Good for beginners to interm pros might what some tougher holes. Basket are made by a local welder they are good solid baskets.
Cons: Holes 5,7,and 8 can be unplayable during the summer do to park patrons. Course could use a little more wooded holes.
Other Thoughts: Local park user are still getting used to seeing disc fly. Some might pick them up be nice and explain what our game is and most will stop and watch you throw.
