Hard 9 Hole Course
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: - Concrete Tees
- Good catching baskets even though I am not sure what kind they are.
- Based in a small town so it is quite easy to find the course and the first tee is right off of the park road.
- The course uses the elevation that it has very well. The few holes that have the elevation on them are very tough so even though a lot of the holes seem short they are in no ways easy.
- LOTS of variety. Even though this is a 9 hole course I still feel the need to bring my whole bag because you just never know what the wind is going to do out there.
- Hole 5 is the only hole that is sub 300' that I think is acceptable for it to be a par 4. Its very tight, winding and uphill. A very hard hole.
Cons: - There are 2 holes that do not have concrete tees but there has yet to be a time where it was an issue for me.
- Area behind the tees could be trimmed down some so that you can get more of a run up for the longer holes.
- The course could 100% be trimmed up some to make some lines out there and give you a chance to get to some of the baskets.
- There are quite a few holes where you step up to the tee and you think to yourself "how the heck am I supposed to make my disc go there" and because of that you end up throwing around a lot of the trees instead of having a defined line or two to take.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course to play and it challenged me in a lot of ways. I threw pretty much every shot in my game just to get through this course and for that reason I really like the course. With a few improvements it could be a lot more fun and it does seem like there is a lot of room on the property so adding more holes would be awesome.

Great advanced to pro level course
Pros: Great variety of holes that will challenge you on each drive. Long holes (710; 509) and short technical holes (150ish, and a few around 250) will challenge all players. The course is well kept, I'm not sure if the baskets are home made, because they look so crisp. Good sign at the beginning of the course, great signs at each tee box, signs that point you to the next hole, and a great flow to the course.
Cons: You do play over cement picnic tables on hole 2 (509 ft.). It's through a bandstand, so I'm not sure if it gets a lot of use. There is a river that flows through the course, but it only comes into play (kind of) on hole 3, where you should watch for the sign near the tee box, my brother almost hit it, so hug the left side of the box. Hole 5 needs work, but there is orange paint on some trees, so if they get axed (literally) it will open up the hole immensely. It is a great hole to score a 3 on. Play it and you'll understand.
Other Thoughts: There is cement tee pads on most holes, it looks like a work in progress. We played while at a family reunion in Napoleon, this course and Steele. I will go out of my way to play Linton's course again. Steele, not so much. It's worth the drive off 94 to play, IMHO, it was much better than Klaus Park in Jamestown as well. I would like to see 9 more holes because there seems to be enough room at the park, but perhaps it will come in time. We played at 7am on a Sunday, so there was no traffic, and I imagine with more play this course (and the underbrush) will open up more, making it better for immediate/advanced level players. I am surprised we didn't lose any discs, because the brush on a few holes is thick.
