Pros: Great tees and baskets. Long Holes and short holes alike. Challenging and scenic. Good for beginners and pros.
Cons: 4th hole blind tee shot easy to lose discs
Other Thoughts: Excellent condition. I enjoy almost every hole. This course is great for long drivers. There are many elevation changes and trees that make excellent hazards. Make sure you keep your tee shot low on the 4th and 11th holes and watch your disc if you don't. These holes can be very dangerous!

Pros: Nice park, quite scenic. Nice tee pads with a well-made sign at each one. Around many teepads where it gets muddy, plastic grids are in place to prevent slippage.

This course provides a lot fo elevation change. It seems like every hole has either rolling terrain, or an uphill or downhill shot. Also has several blind curves around wide tree lanes for added intrigue.

This course does a good job forcing controlled D. You will want to throw for max-D due to the relatively nature of the holes (no trees in the middle of most fairways) but there are enough woods here to punish you for errant shots, as I found out the hard way on multiple holes.

Overall, this course is a good compromise. People who like open courses will like it here, but it takes enough control that players without big-D can still do well.

However, it still probably favors big arms more, since its not overall a terribly technical course.

One thing this course does really well is to mix it up a bit. No two holes are really the same, due to the varied terrain in play, and the mix of scattered trees and more wooded rough.

The rolling terrain here is a nice change from O'hauser's flat landscape, and compliments it nicely, as those two seem to be the main courses in the Appleton DG scene.
Cons: Frustrating tee signs. These signs are very nice on first glance, and tell hole yardage and par very well. However, the "tee perspective" hoel maps are totally worthless. Why make them this way? No ball or disc golf course I've ever seen does them this way, and for good reason. Here, you have to scout the hole despite the nice signs, since the map tells nothing. That's quite sad.

Though this park provides a variety of interesting challenges, nothing about it particularly jumps out at you. The holes are pretty fun, but its quite biased towards distance over accuracy, a bit too much for my liking. Most of the locals I've talked to prefer O'hauser and consider Plamann a quite easy course. I would tend to agree. Compared to O'hauser, this course is a walk in the park.

This course is full of solid, good holes, but doesn't rise to the level of greatness. Overall, its a solid course that's fun to play.
Other Thoughts: The course plays around a fenced-in swimming lake area, complete with sandy beaches, diving docks, and designated sections roped off for kids, adults, even a dog area. Very cool thing to see in the middle of a city, IMO way more fun than a neighborhood pool.

This is a fun, interesting course, worth checking out, but it really wont stun or amaze you like O'hauser does, which is why I'd go back to the latter before I return here.

Pros: Great course.
Beautiful park, with nice variety of holes.
Cons: Be prepared for a hike.
I have encoutered some real jerks here, and when you have to wait to play a hole with rude people the game becomes consederably less fun.
Other Thoughts: Nice place to play, go on a weekday during schooltime so it wont be so packed.

Pros: This course was the first course I ever played, and continued to be my main course until I moved out of the area.

This course is amazing. The designers really utilized the lanscape to its advantage. The course has a variety of elevation changes on the holes, There are a few holes that you drive uphill and others that drive downhill, one being a long bomb downhill. Another downhill hole features a blind shot at the basket. Some holes also play downhill and dogleg to the right, requiring a long anhyzer throw (RHBH here). There are thrashcans at every hole, and benches at most. All of the tees on the course are cement. As an added bonus, you can take a side trek after hole 11 and play the meadowview 9 course that is also in the park. Aesthetically, the park is beautiful. It is taken care of very well. Each hole also features very nice tee signs.
Cons: The only annoying thing about the park is that it gets very busy during the summer and late spring, right after school lets out. Sometimes there will be over three groups waiting at the first tee. This course also has the tendency to attract a very large number of rec players who are not the most courteous people. They sometimes will throw in on you while you are still playing a hole without a second thought.
Other Thoughts: Overall, plamann is one of the nicest and well-kept public courses i have played in the area. It offers a good balance of difficulty for new players and experienced players alike.

Pros: Beautiful well maintained course..yes play all 27 holes...yes YOU CAN DO IT..lots of variety, power drives off of concrete launch pads, great line drives as well as tricky anhyser shots, great place to learn a forehand shot. well groomed course, beautiful place to learn and gives you a professional challenge even for the most experienced
Cons: I cant think of any cons except it can get busy, so keep an eye on your disc, I have had it picked up and taken while it was still in play
Other Thoughts: I have played a few different courses and if you live in green bay and Wisconsin it is worth the drive to expand you disc golf course horizons

Pros: This course has it all: uphill, downhill, long, short, hyzer, anhyzer, some lightly wooded holes and a couple blind shots. It's a course that will challenge many aspects of your game and require many different shots.

The teepads are nice and long, there are beautiful wooden signs at each hole and there are plenty of trash cans.
Cons: While the tee signs are very nice looking, they aren't very accurate, so be sure you know exactly where the pin is on blind holes.

Some of the shorter holes appear to be kind of easy, but elevation, rough or a well placed tree adds to the challenge.

Other Thoughts: I was impressed by the condition of this beautiful course and the work that's been put into it; it's definitely worth checking out.

Pros: Well-groomed. The nicest looking course in the area. Good challenges on this course. No one shot will work on all holes. Lots of trash receptacles and benches.
Cons: One pad and one pin per hole. It's right near a high school with an open campus, so kids could be crowding it up there any time. The maps on the tee signs are very misleading; make sure you check where the pin actually is before throwing.
Other Thoughts: A fun round, but a spotter can be helpful on a few holes. There's a great, factual (and humorous) movie about wannabe gangbangers that includes this park. It's available in local libraries.
