Pros: This is my favorite course to play because it gives the feeling of playing at home. You don't have to worry about other players in the front or back of you because it is a private course. You can take your time playing it and just have a good time. Although none of the holes are extremely long they are challenging. The course has some tight tee boxes and difficult pin placements. The water hazard of the pond is nice touch. There are many rest area's on the course if you just want to take a break and relax. The course is constructed so that is can be played a number of ways which makes it fun. It is a nice short course that you could play all day and not get sick of it.
Cons: Watch out for Cooper bombs. The bugs can be a little bad if you play at dawn or dusk. I would not recommend this course if you have a heart condition, are pregnant, or a history of seizures, because it will blow you away!
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for all players. Everyone should play it once.

Pros: the pros are 1. the course is basically yours when you are on it! 2. there are some challenging holes you would like to play a couple times, and rounds are quick enough to do so. 3. the course isn;t set in stone and we have played a couple different sets of 9. 4. did i mention it is basically yours when you play?
Cons: it has a few cons aswell as any course does... 1. being the length (can be altered a couple differnts ways to lengthen and toughen) 2. the baskets are a little personal touch to the course. 3. no facilities besides the rents house for a couple miles.
Other Thoughts: great time to be had by all who love to disc, casey is a good knowledge of other wisconsin courses aswell. treat it with respect and play it often!

Pros: -Private Course(Basically all to yourself)
-Course has decent homemade baskets. They catch very well basket is a tad bit shallow.
-Natural tees but all are fairly level(Looking to move to outdoor Carpet in 2013)
-Some elevation mainly off the tee pads
- Number 2 is a low tight tunnel with a hanging basket!!!
-Good Variety of shots required
- Course is mainly all about shot placement. Meaning you have certain gaps or lanes you must hit to get a clean look at the basket.
-Nice rustic benches plus Bins and Cans for recycling. No Trash cans.
- Hole one has some very unique pin protection.
-The pond comes in play on hole 4 and the creek in play on holes 5 and 9.
Cons: -Natural tees although good rubber pads would be better.
- Course is a bit hard to get on(Sorry, I play to much DG)
-no tee signs
Other Thoughts: This course is my baby, i started it way back in 2008 but left to move to California in 2010. The course stayed inactive for 2 years now. I have recently revamped a few holes and created 3 three new one(8/18/2012) Course is a full nine holes With an optional 3 holes added to make it 12.

Course getting better and better...

Pros: Update for 2013: Mr. Shuie has been working on this course, when the opportunity presents itself; for the past three years.
The information provided below is still generally valid; but, I've upped the rating to a solid 3; becasue many of the holes now have a "3 level" tee that is longer than the original and forces distance; in addition to shot placement.
I would also suggest that you alot a full day to play here; once you get connected with the owner; as there are really @27 possible holes here and if time allows, Casey will probably show you all possible holes. The finishing holes are especially nice; and offer a number of possible designs; depening on pin placement.
Two shots over the Shu Pond; #5 and #8. Water not really in play (unless you're quite short), but nice view. Edit: One hole has water considerably in play these days....
Good course to practice annies (rhbh) or forehands. Fairways pretty tight and some pins only open on one side; requiring interesting putts.
Casey, the owner/designer is a wonderful young fellow. "I'm only 28, and I've got my own course in the ground." You must call him first; because, A: that's what he desires, and B: you'll need a guide. The reason this is a pro is that you'll enjoy a round with Casey tremendously.
There are alternate tee possibilities for the final three holes that make them longer/ tougher; and one brings the pond into a more dangerous position.
Cons: Dirt tees with no signs. This will probably remain the case. The course is not played enough for tee erosion to become an issue.
Homemade baskets. While this is a con because they are not quite up to the level of normal buckets; they hold very well; and this should not be regarded as much of a con.
Two baskets used for more than one hole. Again, this will not be an issue, unless there are quite a number of players at any one time. I don't expect this to happen.
See hole info for update; some of this info is still valid; but distances have been updated by owner.
This info in related to rhbh. #1 and #2 short forehand or anheiser. #2 more drastic line. #3 tight straight fairway. #4 slight uphill anheiser. #5 230 ft. straight across pond. #6 dowhill 340 ft. #7 340 ft. back to basket for hole 5. #8 back across pond. #9 320 foot open hole back to hole 1 basket; but, watch out for the wagon loaded with logs off to your right!
