Pros: Marinette City Park is a good 9 hole course that has something for everyone. First off it's got concrete tees, good tee signs and a course map by hole 1. There are elevation changes on about half the holes, there are some open holes, some wooded holes, and it (debateably) has two par 4's (one long open and one tight wooded). The first half of the course is more wooded and forces you to hit you line to be rewarded with a birdie.
Hole 2 is a big uphill shot. Hole 3 is a short dinker but with a big drop off behind the basket. Hole 4, possibly a par 4, is a 350 foot wooded tunnel shot than makes you decide if you're going to go for it or play it safe with a midrange shot off the tee. The last three holes are open and hole 7 is a 600 foot long bomb.
Cons: The course starts off great with first 6 holes, hole 7 is a long wide open hole and the last two holes are also open so the course kind of lets you down at the end. Once you finish the course there's a very long walk from hole 9 back to the car. On the way I saw the practice basket which doesn't seem very close to the parking area or hole 1.
The shot selection isn't very good here. The last hole forces a turnover shot for a RHBH player, but the rest of the holes are straight or hyzer shots.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good 9 hole course and is worth checking out if you're in the area. With the exception of hole 4, it's a good course for less experienced players. More experienced players will enjoy the various challenges the course present.

Pros: Discatcher baskets. Concrete tees about 5x8. Fair variety - Some elevation change on 5 holes, mostly manicured grass under large trees, but 3 holes through moderately heavy schule. Few if any apparent conflicts with other park useage.
Cons: Not many really! Mosty I found the course to be OK but unexciting.
The prospect of landing in the #4 fairway from #3 is a very real but minor con. The tee pads are minimal size, and #8 is especially crowded.
There are no gold level holes, but there is enough length to challenge advanced players. The assigned course pars are appropriate to a green level course although it is marked as a red level course.
Other Thoughts: Mostly typical of city park courses, this park is large with many other apparent uses including ball fields and playgrounds.
The long walk back bothered me, and I wonder why there are not three more holes through the unused woods between #9 and the beginning. Re-doing hole #4, and adding three more through those woods will boost my rating!
If you are spending the night in Marinette as I did, you should definitey play this course. This was my second of three courses played in this
area. I was please at how much better this course is than the one in Peshtigo. Next I headed for Oconto.
#1 Almost straight RHBH slight hyzer, fairly tight lane through big trees. Overthrow right threatens #2 tee.
#2 RBH hyzer with 25' of uphill elevation. Fairly open w/ big trees at sides. Needs "next tee" sign from here
#3 Short tight downhill through thick schule. Overthrow could land on #4 fairway.
#4 Tunnel shot about 15' wide through medium heavy schule.
#5 RHBH Hyzer. Heavy schule left and medium with some slope away right. +10' of elevation.
#6 Open straight tee shot to goal lightly guarded by big trees. -10' elevation change.
#7 Wide open crush hole. -10' elevation.
#8 Strange transition from #7, walks up fairway for half of hole. Tee is crowded back against the fence, restricting run-up to about 10'.
#9 RHBH anhyzer. Open left, heavy schule right. Distance solidly in grey zone.
Long walk back to Hole #1!
