This course is so easy

Pros: - Nice tee pads
- Not totally in the open
- Was clean when I was there.
- Ace runs all over the place.
Cons: - I threw a putter off the tee for every single shot except for one, and that time it was because my putter wasn't overstable enough lol.
- Would have been nice to have some more signs out on the course.
- Erosion on 6 is bad.
Other Thoughts: Show up with only a putter and make bets with rec players?

Better Than Expected

Pros: +Pretty big tees for a smaller city park course. They were nice and grippy and aimed the right direction.
+Nice baskets. And they were blue!
+Some fun elevation changes on many holes. One big downhill ace run and a few faster greens on the last few holes.
+Lots of other stuff to do at the park and having the course here might get others into the game. At the same time, the course doesn't really get in the way of other activities and vice versa.
+The course has tee signs that are helpful enough.
+There were enough trees to make this course fun and make you hit your lines a bit without making it overwhelming or frustrating.
+Lots of ace runs here for many levels of players.
+This course is less busy than other courses in the area (lower rated but much less busy, worth it IMO)
+Lots of parking here.
+Easy to find first tee and easy to follow through the course. The 9th basket is close enough to the parking lot.
Cons: -Vandalism and litter are prevalent here. Some tags on some tee signs and lots of bottles and cans on the wooded holes. I don't think that there were any trash cans specific to the disc golf course.
-The course is overall pretty short and doesn't have a lot of variation in length. If you like to throw open bombers then this course isn't for you.
-The gap on 5 seemed to be slightly too tight. It is uphill and you can't see the basket and there are a few different gaps but they are all tight.
-I only knew how to find 6 because I was following some locals. It is up a little path to the top of the hill.
Other Thoughts: +This course is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area and want a shorter course that is a little technical with some ace runs.
+This course is similar but slightly less fun than other area courses in the 9 hole range. I had fun.
+They did a good job here with some marginal land around the edge of a city park.

Decent Casual Course

Pros: -Good place to take someone who's new to the game
-Pleasant walk through and around a park
-Decent concrete tee pads
-Good chance for an ace on every hole
Cons: -Too simple
-Very short. It seems like most holes are less than 200 feet
-Close to tennis courts and baseball fields, could possibly interfere with play
-Baskets are getting a little old, some are crooked.
Other Thoughts: Not terrible, but nothing special. All holes are very short, which can be fun if you're looking for an ace, but they present little to no challenge. I'd consider myself a below-average player and I still shot way under par. The main advantage of this course is that it's perfect for a quick round. I was able to finish in around 20 min. This would be a good place to take someone who's new to the game, or a good place to go if you need to work on some different shots/play a confidence booster round. However, I can't suggest going out of your way to play here. If you're in the area or live close, check it out, but otherwise there are lots of courses in the MPLS/STP metro area that are much more deserving of your time.

ace runs!

Pros: Every hole is an ace run. My girlfriend brought me here because her house is super close and I wanted a round in before it got dark. You can fly threw a round in 20 minutes. Every hole is ace-able. There fun 200 footers. Not much difficulty. Perfect for putters and mids. No need to bring a driver at all. A few baskets are blocked by trees. Some uphill shots from the teepad. The hole where you throw from on top of the hill, the teepad is sideways, but good thing you dont need a run up because its a 30 foot ish drop down, and the distance is only 150 ish so you barely need to put any mustard behind your toss.
Cons: By the schools. Passing students. The sideways teepad previously mentioned. Football equipment by one of the holes that your disc could get stuck under. Students play during the day for their class, so they fills up the course. No shots over 250. Sidewalk very close to a few holes. Tennis courts right next to a few holes, could hit them with a disc or they could potentially hit you with a ball.
Other Thoughts: The locals tee off on spots they made calling them "pro tees" that are longer so it makes the course a little more challenging by adding distance to the mix. Fun warm up round, or just ace runs. Bring your mids and putter and youll have a blast. Its more of a casual course rather than taking it seriously.

 Decent break-in

Pros: Holes are individual and don't seem to cookie cutter from each other.
Small elevation changes, with some going left and right, and straight.
Good tee pads.
Maintained fairways.
Good use of trees as obstacles on some hole and not on every single hole.
Beginner friendly!
Cons: SHORT!
Only 9 holes.
Many times you will have to skip holes because the other people at the multi use park will be sitting on your fairways and don't care if they are in the way or not.
No tees signs on all holes.
Other Thoughts: IT is a good park to go introduce someone to the sport, break in a new mid range/putter, practice pinpoint shots or a casual day with friends. No reason to bring out a big arm as the holes are all around 200 feet long.

Pros: 1. Ace Run! Can not stress this enough.
2. Its a city park, so the fairways are always groomed.
3. Fast to play. Easy to get in a few rounds.
4. Variable terrain.
Cons: 1. Lots of trash.
2. Parking can be an issue during softball, little league and school hours.
3. Short
4. Hole 6 can be difficult to find.
5. on occasion there are little league parents sitting on the fairway of 7.
6. Only 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: Although there are far more cons than pros its a good course. It is kept up well as long as you do not care about trash. If your in the area and have time its worth hitting up. The best part is being able to go for chains on every hole. Great place to have an ace race with a few pals.

 Good for Beginners

Pros: Cement tees, good baskets, great for families, good location, variety in landscape (lots of open tees but also plenty of trees and a nice hill on hole 6)
Cons: Can be pretty crowded during peak hours, litter everywhere, holes 5-7 are confusing if you've never played them before, only 9 holes
Other Thoughts: This course is best for beginners, young children, and people who aren't that great at disc golf. This was the first course I played and I have enjoyed it very much. If you're looking for a course to test your skills, I would suggested a different one. There is a course map available, and I would bring it along. Getting from hole 5 to hole 6 is challenging the first time.

 Decent enough course

Pros: Free, nice chain baskets, good confidence boosting course, good course to work on new discs/techniques without fear of losing a disc or posting an awful score.
Cons: Too easy, can be busy at times with slow moving high schoolers, inconsistent signage, lots of littering, walking from your car when you park can a bit farther than you'd like if you go during school times (the course is right next to the high school and the parking lots are used by the kids).
Other Thoughts: Course really only for beginners, every basket is easily reachable from the tee. I used to think this course benefited lefty backhanders, but in reality there are easy lines for all types of throws and their corresponding natural hyzers, etc. There are multiple ace opportunities, especially on #6. Some holes have signs, most don't. It had seemed like every time I go there another sign is missing, currently there are only four (three are readable) left. Decent cement tee off locations. Worth checking out at least once, and a great place to bring someone to have them try out the sport for the first time. Helpful hint: It can get very windy here at times and the wind plays a big factor on the holes 6-9.

 Nice Little Neighborhood Pitch & Putt!

Pros: The Eagan course sits in a small section of large rambling city park. There are many ballfields and soccer fields and open areas. it's just a really lovely park. The course itself is just a small pitch and putt that plays over in a corner of the park around the tennis courts and up against the park boundaries. This is really nice rolling, wooded terrain for a course. The course is definitly set up for the beginner/recreational player. Intermediate to advanced players need not apply unless you just want to work on your short game. The teepads are nice, large concrete ones with a feature I've not seen before but then again then is probably my first snow belt course. They are sloped on the sides for maximum rain/snow run-off. What a great idea! The baskets are older but serve this course perfectly well. There are a number of fun little ACE runs. My own personal favorite was # 6. It's just a little 150' touch shot to an open basket, pretty simple, just an ACE waiting to happen. Note on # 6 hole: The teepad due to space constraints lies sideways. Fairly unique!
Cons: The signs are missing for #'s 3, 4, 5 and 6. Darned punks! There is no place to show off your big arm on this course. Leave the driver at home.
Other Thoughts: This course is what it is; That is a decently fun little pitch and putt. It would be fun to be throwing on a busy summer night with all the ballfields in action. # 9 finishes right behind the left field fence. Try not to anhyser your drive (???) over the fence and into the playing field. You could probably get in three rounds in an hours time.
