Sounded good but...

Pros: There is a course somewhere there
Cons: Overgrown to the point of not able to see track any hole or find many landing pads
Other Thoughts: I was super excited to play this course, being 18 holes and sounding fun for a beginner, but after getting to this course, i realized i didn't even need to bring my discs because it was basically unplayable. I will check back after a few months, since I have read there is a tournament in July there, but I have my doubts on whether it will be in better shape.

Good new course
Pros: -Short and technical 18 holer.
-Good variation of shots, no two holes seemed too alike.
-Water, stream and trees are used well as obstacles.
-Blind tees on a few make it interesting.
-Map at the start and signs at every pro tee show par and distance for every hole. Look at this to know where the next hole is on a few otherwise navigation isnt too hard either.
-Friendly locals that will show you the course. Many were involved in its construction so listen to what they have to say.
-Many holes are aceable but not too easy either.
-Not huge elevation but the subtle drops and gains keep it interesting.
-There are some holes that you wont see at too many courses like 3 and 8 which the basket sits at the top of a small hill or 6 which is between 2 ponds so over or under shooting is a problem, 14 is just crazy so you should play it too.
-The fairways and green areas are mowed well.
-2 tees on all but hole 3 and that is only about 200 feet and isn't necessary.
-Good tourney with lots of prizes to be held every July.
Cons: -A bit short, especially from the rec tees.
-Tee boxes are a bit small and some have loose gravel/sand on them.
-Easy to lose discs and even good shots can be hard to find. Use a spotter on blind tees.
-Somewhat long walks between a few of the holes (8-9 comes to mind).
-The baskets are of lower quality and don't catch discs as well as others but aren't too bad.
-The wind can whip up pretty fast in western MN which can make this course all that much more challenging.
Other Thoughts: This is a good new course that I would recommend playing if in the area. It has a good support group in the SMDGA. I recommend keeping it on the fairway and be conscious of the water although it is only a big threat on one hole. If this course is maintained well and played often it will remain good or only get better.
