Pros: 1) The deaf community is very into disc golf and it is awesome they have this at their school.

2) Nice elevation used on this course, with some ups and downs and a few running across the slopes. Roll-aways are a possibility but it is more important on your drives to figure how your disc will be landing.

3) DGA baskets with number plates facing the tees.

4) Some large Oak trees on this course help to make the holes better than if it were wide open.

5) Rolls of rubber matting down by the 6th basket so hopefully they plan to one day use it for tees because there is no way to know if you are throwing from the proper spot and it would also help if they were to level areas on a few of the tees so you do not have to throw from a slope.

6) Beginner friendly because it is mostly open.

7) You can select what kind of shot you want to throw on half of the holes, but you need to consider the slopes which sort of dictate that you can or cannot throw a certain shot.

8) The turf is in great condition on this entire course (except where it was recently newly reseeded).
Cons: 1) #2 basket is completely mangled . . . most likely from the construction equipment used in the area???

2) 6 holes is a short course . . . not going to take away from the course rating, but it does take away from the likelihood I would ever return . . . but then again so does the fact that I tresspassed to play it today and avoided it once before because of the no tresspassing signs.

3) Not enough obstacles to be a really fun course in my opinion.

4) No tee signs, no benches, no garbage cans, no bathrooms, no nothing . . . but then again I was trespassing. There may be no reason to have these on school property and the course only takes 15 minutes to play when evading a trespassing ticket on STATE PROPERTY!

5) Someone else mentioned how bad it could be for you getting caught on state school property. It might be a double whammy . . . but I risked it anyways.
Other Thoughts: I ran across this course early in my disc golf career on a road-trip to play a bunch of courses and I skipped it because of the no tress-passing signs. It has irritated me since then that I didn't just play it because it was on a weekend and activity around the school was likely light. Today was no different but I also arrived there at 6:45 AM on a Sunday . . .I pondered skipping it again and I scouted the whole site beforehand, and then headed out to play my quickest round ever. I think it took me no more than about 15 minutes playing from basket to basket . . . no scouting for actual tees, just get up throw, putt, then throw again.

It's an allright course but not one I expect to ever return to . . . unless they add more holes or improve the course.I am happy it exists for the deaf students . . . two birds with one stone . . .young people learning of this sport and also handicapped kids learning this sport. I know the deaf community is very involved in disc golf and I know a handful of the people in WI that are deaf and play tourneys and may have been involved in the development of this course.
