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.

 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.

Pros: This course is really close to a few schools as well as a park for people to play in and enjoy as well. This course would be a great beginners course for someone trying out new discs or learning the game for the first time. It offers some shots into the woods, and 2 with elevation changes which gives someone the opportunity to experience some new shot types.
Cons: For someone who has played before you can almost drive right up next to the pin on every hole if you have a good drive, making it a less challenging course overall. Some tees are a little tricky due to signs being lost or stolen.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a quick play you can probably get through the entire course in 20 min. if not sooner if you are strapped on time.

 Easy Course

Pros: A good beginner course, a quick play if you don't have much time.
Cons: It seems it was put in after the park was established. Many people come there for tennis and during the summer baseball games, marching band and track kids run through areas you play through. There aren't any decent holes for a good drive.
Other Thoughts: Fun to play if you want to warm up.

 Short but varied

Pros: This course has a nice variety of shots, although they are all fairly short. A low tunnel shot, shots into and out of the woods, a nice downhill shot. Cement tee pads are nice and the blue baskets are easy to see. Layout is easy to follow and it is a very quick play.
Cons: This course seems almost like an afterthought as it winds around tennis courts and ballfields. Park can be pretty busy and bad shots will interrupt someone's tennis or softball game. I felt like I was in the way while playing the course.
Other Thoughts: The course itself is really nice with a good variety of shots. When the park is empty it's a fun and quick play. However it's too busy with the other traffic going on in the park.

Pros: Nice course for working on your putting and midrange shots. Targets are nice and there are a few concrete tee pads. There are a few holes that help a person work on their precision shotmaking through tight windows.
Cons: Course is super short and I only use a mid-range and putter on this course.
Other Thoughts: They need to extend a few of the holes to 300+ feet so the average and above average players can warrant using a driver.

Pros: Nice mix of trees and open holes. Short, but with some obstacles. Decent course for a quick afternoon round.
Cons: Traffic. Park is heavily used, with tennis courts and high traffic areas coming into play.
