Better than most say it is

Pros: This course is set in a pretty nice multiuse park. The baskets are discatchers that catch pretty good, not great. The flow of the course is pretty easy to follow. You have to cross the road after 12 then back across for 18, not a big deal though. There's a little bit of elevation that's used nicely in a few spots. The signs have a basic hole diagram with par, distance and a next hole arrow. The course does a great job of staying away from other activities. The wind is a big factor on the open section of the course. They also do a good job tucking some of the pins into the trees on the otherwise boring, wide open holes. It wouldn't seem to be too busy most of the time. We were the only group there on a warm sunday afternoon. The course is permanent and also free to play. There's a restroom at the parking lot too. The course was pretty clean and taken care of. They have a nice large map of the course before hole 1 which is great if you're playing for the first time.
Cons: The tees are just natural, and most are pretty rutted and uneven. I'd imagine they'd get muddy in wetter months. Holes 14 through 17 are kind of ridiculous with there being no decent lines to the pin. The rough is also brutal on these holes. If you end up off the fairway you'll be searching for a while. Even the rough on first section is kind of insane. The prairie can gobble up discs too. A few of the tee signs are missing, though it's pretty easy to figure out where you're throwing to.
Other Thoughts: This course really gets a bad rap. It's not great by any means but I've played way, way worse. Still, I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to play this but if you're in the area it's a decent round. If you have time though go play the grey fox in Silver Lake WI, it's way better.

Pros: - Course is set in a large multi-use park, with a park, a football field, and such. The disc golf is well separated from everything else, probably even with other events going on.
- Majority of the course is spread out well around a large field, often bordering a dense forest area and unmowed prairie area. These holes have some tucked baskets and some obvious hyzer and anhyzer shots, to get around the forest.
- A few holes have good elevation changes, especially by a sled hill area. A steep downhill shot with a water hazard requires good accuracy, and is set up by a decent uphill shot.
- A couple holes are set within the forest, and force some long RHBH anny lines with lots of trees and other roughage. All of the easy RHBH hyzers disappear in this part of the course; deinitely some tough lines and windows to hit.
- Good variety of hole lengths, with many over 300' and very few much shorter than that. The rolling terrain is noticeable in many spots to mix up the more open shots.
- Good baskets, tees ok, signs are good but possibly inaccurate, seems like there was some tweaked pin placements (just guessing). Navigation easy with the map in front.
Cons: - A lot of holes out in the open need a simple RHBH hyzer shot, of varying degrees. Not much thought needed in many spots, getting good distance becomes the only concern.
- Some holes in the forest seem to share a fairway, due to the available lines to the baskets.
Other Thoughts: - This is a pretty well-rounded course, with a lot of different shots throughout. Plenty of holes with tucked baskets, elevation changes, hyzer and anhyzer shots, wide open and in some gnarly forest, with a little water in a few spots. I think the make or break is hole length; some might find this too short to be worth it, or some too rough/tough in spots.
- Basket #14 is indeed missing, along with #16's sign. Hole lengths seem out of date, #18 is definitely not 230'.
