Deuce or die that needs some TLC
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Great beginner course with plenty of elevation and unique holes.
Cons: Hole 3 could be unplayable with heavy rain. The fairway is basically a eroded creek bed.
Hole 9 thru 11 area is crammed together. I even threw to the wrong basket. Discs could be buzzing your head when it gets busy out here.
Hole 14 was so overgrown it was unplayable. Like throwing thru a forest. Then go find your disc.
Hole 18 was hard to find with no teepad.
Long weird walk back to vehicle after hole 18.
Eroded dangerous trails and needs updated signage.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun fairly easy course that needs some love to get it back in shape. Like most Indiana courses, the rating is too high.

A great town course
0 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Super fun course for the amatuer like me. Great terrain changes, you need to think about risk reward on almost every hole. So picturesque.
Cons: Basket on #7 is missing. I took the time to send the parks manager a note thanking him for the facility and telling him about the basket being missing.
Other Thoughts: Ill try to play this gem every time I pass through.

Through the Woods We Go
Pros: Interesting holes, with some fun lines. Lots of trees, so finesse is more important than strength on this one.
Lots of elevation changes.
Park nearby for activities for family/others.
Cons: Not a lot of open holes to really air it out. Can be a negative for beginners, but presents a fun challenge for intermediate players.
Can get frustrating if you start nailing the trees and don't have time/patience.
Other Thoughts: If you like the finesse holes, you will probably like this course. If you play with a friend that can really let em fly, this is a good course to even the playing field.
This course isn't bad

Pros: Pros: The scenery at this course was amazing. I loved the view of some shots.
Concrete Tees were nice and in good condition.
Signs - Maps are some of the more accurate that I've seen.
Elevation - Elevation varies and this course is definitely a hike.
I liked the short nature of some of the par 3 holes. It made things fun.
Not all of the baskets are identical which means that some have one set of chains and some have more. I had 2 spit outs due to the baskets with 1 set of chains. Baskets are all facing their respective tee pads. One basket in particular was in a cement block above ground.
Tees: Only one set of tees for each hole. Could not find tee pad for Hole 18.
Signs: Signs have graffiti and some wear to them. Could not find signs for a few holes.
Had trouble distinguishing baskets between holes 10, 11, and 12. Very close together.
Definitely need to be somewhat accurate or you'll have some difficult shots to perform.
Other Thoughts: I had fun playing this course because it was out of my norm. I didn't think it was in too bad condition but it could use some work on it.

Great Course for Area
Pros: Very Scenic Course - Hills, Rocky Cliffs, Woods, views of farmland. It is very peaceful here, even when there are baseball games.
Baskets - Spiderweb 3 baskets are very grippy. Some of the baskets on the course are not the same as others through.
Concrete Tees - Large concrete tees on each hole. Only one tee per hole.
Signs - There is a very detailed sign for each hole that lists the distance, par, and has a somewhat accurate picture of the hole.
Elevation - Lots of elevation change, even on the shortest hole here. Hole 12 is an immediate drop off.
Variety - Short and technical, long and open, hills, woods, creek hazard (1, 12, 13, 18).
Most holes require accurate drives and approaches while very few are open bomb holes.
Most of the course is simple to navigate. Typically you follow the path (dirt or paved) with the exception of a few holes.
Very short holes would be challenging enough for beginners and would greatly help intermediate players with accuracy. Most of this course would be an ace run for intermediate and advanced players.
Not many courses that are nearby so this course fills the gap.
Cons: Tees - Only 1 per hole. An alternate tee for each hole would make this course much more challenging. The shortest holes need a longer tee. Most holes just need an alternate angle for the hole.
Baskets - Not all baskets are the same and some are facing the wrong direction.
Hole 9 and 11. It is very easy to throw to the basket of hole 11 from tee for 9. A sign pointing to the correct basket would be helpful.
Some tees are close to the basket / fairway of previous hole (7 and 8. 11 and 12)
Very short holes could be boring for seasoned players but they require a tight, accurate throw.
At times, course can be confusing to find the next tee. Course needs signs pointing to the next tee for most holes. Hole 12 to 13 needs one. Hole 17 to 18 needs one.
Basket for 18 is not near the parking lot. Requires either a hike up a steep hill and through the park or cross the creek and walk along baseball fields.
No course map at start of course.
Other Thoughts: This course is on the way to my lakehouse and I play it at least once a year. It is in a very peaceful city park even though the park is multi-use.
The holes here are very unique and any disc golfer would appreciate the challenge it brings. I would recommend this course to any disc golfer. People who drive out of their way to play it will not be disappointed.
If you want more challenge, go to Mississinewa State Park or Pieradice in Peru.
If the course had next hole signs, alternate tees (longer), a course map, and yellow paint on all the baskets, it would be a 3.5. I had trouble giving it a 3 but the lack of distance prevented me from doing so!

A little odd
Pros: The course plays through a pleasant city park. A handful of holes play through grassy park areas with scattered mature trees, offering multiple lines and open drives. A couple of these shots offer a little bit of length, with one in the 300' range and one more with a little downhill and 400' of distance.
The other half of the course plays through or along fairly dense woods. There are enough trees and enough brush to punish errant shots, and short technical lines that will challenge your short game line shaping skills. There are some minor elevation changes on some shots, adding some interesting greens and some variety on drives. The tee signs are pretty accurate, with hole length and layout. The concrete tees are small but adequate for the length of the course.
Cons: The holes are so short that apart from a couple of the open holes most players won't need more than a putter and a midrange. There isn't a whole lot of challenge if you're pretty good at upshots, every hole is reachable and not all that difficult.
Navigation is a nightmare here, the walks between holes are very long and unmarked. It ends up feeling like you walk more to get to the tees than you do playing the holes. The walk back to the parking lot from 18 is not at all obvious, and is quite long. You often play on or over park roads throughout the course, a potential safety issue on a busy day.
Other Thoughts: Beginners can have a great time here, the holes are short and where there is punishment you'll take an extra stroke on an errant drive but you're not likely to lose discs. More experienced players won't find much challenge here, and there's not enough variety to keep things all that interesting for someone with good line shaping skills. With a little work on signage between holes, this could be a great course to introduce new players to the sport, and if you're looking for a quick putter round with some ace potential this isn't a bad stop.

Pros: - Wabash is set in a large multi-use park. The discing ranges from park-style openness to moderately wooded, with some tasty bits of elevation to shake things up. The schule is well-worn, but potentially punishing. Most holes are very short, ranging from only 90' to 280'. One hole is listed at 300' and one hole is 400'. Despite the short length, the course doesn't feel "cheap" or "throw-away", so to speak. Each hole presents its own little challenge or a fun ace run. A fair amount of rudimentary line shaping is required to score well. Experienced players will shoot well under par, while beginners have the opportunity to play well without tons of mindless open holes.
- A small stream comes into play on #1 (off the tee) and #18 (left in the woods).
- Concrete tees in good shape, adequate tee signs. Bathrooms on site but locked during non-peak times. Lots of other park amenities and activities for the whole family.
Cons: - Next tee signage is needed in a couple of places. In particular, the walk from 12's basket to 13's tee isn't at all obvious. Turn to the right and follow the road to find 13.
- Holes 9-12 are very tightly packed in a relatively open, grassy area of the course. On a busy day, I imagine these holes could become very dangerous without proper etiquette and caution.
- Long, improbable walks from hole to hole and from #18 to the parking lot. It seemed as though the walks between holes and back to the car were longer than the course itself, no joke.
- Hole 18 is currently without a pad (my group, at least, could not find one) and is at the corner of the basketball courts. Look for the faded white arrows leading to it.
- The park, if not necessarily the course itself, has some downright hazardous terrain. Parts of the park have very long, steep drop-offs without any sort of warning, signage, or railings. Exercise caution if you decide to wander through the park.
Other Thoughts: - Set in scenic little Wabash, the City Park disc golf course is an interesting little specimen. Other than the disc golf itself, which is extremely short but still playable, the park has several attractive features. An extremely well-kept and pimped out baseball diamond (dugouts, lights, et al., all for what looked to be a little league team!) Sweet-smelling honeysuckle trees line vast sections of the woods, and often run the length of the fairway. Huge, ancient trees tower over the park in areas, giving the course a feeling of having been there from the beginning of time. Be sure to scope the old-people's retirement home (adjacent to #6) replete with graveyard! No joke.
- Overall, nothing to write home about. This course isn't going to stun experienced discers (unless it's from the length of walks between holes), but for beginners, casual players, and one-disc rounds, it's ideal. Terrain and vegetation are used well enough to make the course a pleasure to play.

Pros: Many holes which cause you to think about how you want to play them. Great opportunity to practice technical shots through woods. Some holes offer several ways to play them making for an interesting round. Good tee pads and signage once you find the tee stations. Overall nice park, that is very well maintained.
Cons: Hard to find some of the holes (after hole 12 take the street to the right side of the basket to find hole 13). Two different types of baskets. Many very short holes, 90-150 feet, in the woods. Some holes seem to be thrown in with little thought (holes 15-17).
Other Thoughts: Avoid park on the first Friday morning of each month as there is a food give away with hundreds of cars making it difficult to play first few holes.

Pros: Very well thought out basket placement. A good place for a beginner to learn the ropes or for someone with experience to sharpen some skills.
Cons: Much of the brush is thick and easy for a disc to be lost in.

Pros: - A good course if you want to score an ace.
- Great range of shots. No two holes seemed alike.
- A cement tee pad at every hole.
- A nice down hill shot on hole 12.
- A few hole dog leg to the left.
- Nice tee signs with par, basket location and distance.
- Narrow fairways on some of the short holes. Makes it more challenging.
Cons: - No practice basket
- Two different kinds of baskets. About half single chains and the other half triple chain.
- A few holes are too short of a distance. Only one 400ft, a couple of 300ft and the rest 200ft and under.
- After hole 18 a walk back to parking and hole 1
Other Thoughts: A nice little course. If in the area and have time. You can play 18 holes pretty fast. " i hit my 2nd ace here"
