The Mother Lode on the Mother Road
Pros: This course is equipped with NexTEEs...
36 holes in one park...
The new layout for the south course is now in play - all 18 baskets are now in. 15, 16 and 18 from the old layout are now 1, 2, and 3 of the new north course.
Cons: In the process of being renovated yet again... but the Park District is A-1 and quick to move forward once ground breaks...
The second course is now playable...
Other Thoughts: www.discgolfclub.org
is the host club
Here is a copy of the layout that was approved by the local park district and installed by the local park district and is now a reality and available for you to play... and write your own review...

Course Remains on the Top
Pros: - Excellent shots
- Variety of terrain and hazards
- Well thought out layout
Other Thoughts: This was my home course, and still sets the bar for standard. Most courses fail to live up the variety of shots and terrain that is experienced by all who venture to Springtucky...

Pros: Good Practice for diffrent types of shots. to get below par from any of the 3 tees, one has to pull out some good shots on a consistent basis.
Most of the renovations have been completed, the course is becoming more playable.
Most of the pins are in B location as well.
Cons: Cross country runners on saturdays..
grass hasnt grown back yet..
needs course maintaince more regulary, lack of trash cans.
Other Thoughts: an awesome course to play.. 80 percent of the players play the red tees...
try the white tees or the blues!

Not bad at all
Pros: Nice mature trees, defined fairways, nice mix of shots and OB's
Cons: hard to follow, some construction noted on hole three making the fairway on 4 very, very muddy. Hole 17 doesn't really have a fairway due to over growth, only direct path could lead to hitting a building or going in the road.
Other Thoughts: Would love to play this in cooler weather. When i went it was horribly humid. Would love to see more courses like this one

Pros: One of the longest courses in Illinois. Great mix of shots to test your mettle and unload your bag. Technical expertise required. From the long tees t the long basket placements, have potential to go out of bounds on 12 holes.
Cons: Renovation is still ongoing. Been plagued with various "natural habitat" issues that have impeded the renovation around the pond.

Pros: This course is a looker, no doubt. Placed all around the south side of park. Many Large trees billowing down allowing different technical shots. Nice, long walk too. Not too many non-frolfers to get in the way and located in the best part of springfield (personal opinion). From long fairways to hillside obstacles, truly a fun place to play.
Cons: I started playing this course only half a year ago and for a year now their has been so called "promised" renovation being done. Holes 1 & 2 are plagued with dirt mounds (1 is easy to get over, just don't throw it left, 2, the dirt mounds create a water hazard only replace the water with dirt and after rain, unforgiving mud) The "renovation" also effects 4, where once a pretty grassy plain was and now a dirt-ridden massacre. Once more construction comes into play on 17, forcing an unofficial tee, usually on top of the steps at the pavilion. Watch out for cars! and do not throw late on 14 by 5th street, for the probability of landing your disc on the only house with a flat roof has just gone up.
Other Thoughts: Granted the mess on 17, It's still quite a challenge from the strange elevation. Besides frolfin', it's a great place to chill at.

What a nasty pond...
Pros: I love the huge old trees they've got, and the length is right there for all the long arms out there...but that's not me...i can throw in the 350 range and I'll consistently get a +4 to +7 at this place...good mix of technical and distance though...
Cons: the pond in the middle is nasty...super nasty...
Other Thoughts: apparently there is a pond renovation of sorts taking place...hopefully that doesn't disturb the course...
