Pros:
Course Maintenance-
Willowbrook was in good condition, all 18 baskets were new and the course upkeep was very nice. Sand bunkers, rolling hills, creeks, and ponds added to the beautiful scenery. Disc golfing with a golf cart was new and fun also.
Cons:
Hole Variety/Course Layout-
Well first of all, you had to set a tee time and play inbetween ball golfers. You threw off the ball golf tees, and the basket were sometimes just as far as the ball golf holes (sometimes longer!). More than half the holes holes were easily over 1000 ft! Also besides a few very unique awsome holes, most were just wide open and straight.

Course Navigation-
The map is 100% wrong and must have been made before the course was even put in. I went in the club house before my round and asked if there was a real map or how to follow the course, and the owner of the course told me I just had to "wing it" because theres no maps, and you couldnt see almost any of the baskets from the tees.

-For one golf cart and two people to play 18 holes , it was a total of $36.
Other Thoughts:
-If they would have made seperate tees for disc golfers and re-thought pin placment on a alot of holes maybe this course would have survived. {R.I.P.}

 Well worth the trip!

Pros: A disc golf mini vacation. Great clubhouse, carts, bomb drives over and over, port a johns inbetween allot of holes, stop in the clubhouse after the turn for a beer, Low fee's ($15 weekends $10 weekdays gets you 18 & a cart)
Ball golfers we encountered on both trips were quite friendly to disc golfers. Staff as well was really cool & helpful.
Cons: Course can be hard to follow, grab a map at the clubhouse, tee's play from cartpath but are poorly marked (have to really look) 1 stroke penalty for landing on ball golf green, 2 strokes for a divot.
Other Thoughts: Definately worth it, bring a group of 4 and play doubles, singles would take a loooong time, and if you have that 1 goober in your group who cant throw 300 your doomed. You have to be able to throw far to play this course.

Pros: Its on a ball-golf course, so its maintained very well. Its VERY long and most holes are wide open. They sell beer at the clubhouse. Ball-golfers are aware of the baskets and offer help in finding them.
Cons: Very hard to see baskets on most holes and there are no signs for disc-golfers. Very frustrating at times. Tees are usually on the cart-paths. Look out for flying golf-balls.
Other Thoughts: $15 to play per person and it gets you a golf-cart too. They take tee time reservations. Call ahead. Plan on a four-hour round. Get a map of the course!!! You will need it.
