Pros: This course is set up on a beautiful piece of private property in northern WI. There is tons of elevation change on this course. There's huge uphill and downhill bombs all throughout the course. The course is heavily wooded with a lot of tight fairways. The wooded aspect with the drastic elevation makes it a very fun and challenging course. The baskets are Lightning DB-5's. Some of these have large poles with flags on top of them which is a nice touch. These are some nice baskets that catch nicely. There are two sets of tees on each hole. The long tees are nice level concrete. The shorts are just natural and didn't look that great. The distances here aren't too long so playing the longs would be fine for almost any level of player. The flow of the course is very easy to follow. They have a bunch of next tee signs throughout. Hole 1 is on the north side of the driveway and hole 18 ends on the south side of the driveway right where you started. The tee signs are different than pictured on here. They're pretty basic with just the hole # and distance. Like I mentioned earlier the property is beautiful. This is my favorite type of setting for disc golf. It reminds me of woodland greens at highbridge mixed with Sandy Point's elevation. The course was well mowed and very clean. They had a few trash cans throughout the course as well. They had a small selection of discs for sale as well which is cool. There's a good mix of different shot shaping required here adding to the overall challenge. Black Bear Creek comes into play on a couple holes though it's nothing too major to worry about as far as lost plastic.
Cons: The short tees didn't look very nice but like I said the holes aren't real long so playing the longs doesn't make it that much harder. It's pay to play but it IS a private course and It's only $3/person/day which is very fair. If you end up off the fairway finding your disc can get difficult, just be sure to pay attention to your shot. The bugs could get bad I'd assume but it's WI so you should expect that.
Other Thoughts: This is a really fun course that I'd recommend to anybody who likes discing. It's just a well designed and maintained course on a beautiful piece of land and is just plain fun to play. There are a few other nice courses within about a half hour too with Treehaven, Almon park and Jack Lake to make for a nice day or weekend of disc golf. They have a large wooden sign at the front of the driveway now making it easier to locate. The course is seasonal and open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Definitely stop by for at least a round if you're in the area.

Pros: Tees are clearly defined, which includes pro tees. Well marked holes, easy to follow along. Good elevation changes, with a number of challenging holes. Our group of four played for three hours with not a soul on the property (including the course owner). Good mix of wooded and wide open shots, though most are fairly wooded. Very big course, as despite the vast number of trees, you still have plenty of room to throw. Baskets are all in good shape.
Cons: Dirt tees only, despite being clearly marked. Terrain is fairly treacherous, so be sure to wear good shoes. Somewhat in the middle of nowhere, might be easy to miss from the road (watch for the big Innova banner, though).
Other Thoughts: You can tell that the guy who runs this course is working hard on it. There is some room for improvement just to clean the course up, but it is very fun to play. There's an honor box on the grounds, with $5 per person for all-day play, and I believe $3 for just a round. I was glad to spend the $5 on this course, as I had a lot of fun playing it. There is a "pro shop" on the grounds, but the owner was not present when we played. If you're anywhere near Crandon, you should go out of your way to give this place a shot. Odds are you won't have much company there, so give it a shot. Be sure to bring a spotter - very easy to lose a disc in the woods.
