Pros: Varieties of tee shots including doglegs, uphill and the fantastic fourth hole, where you tee off above a valley of trees.
Cons: I can imagine this course getting very crowded in more outdoor-friendly months, as we played today in very substandard conditions and were still considering letting people play through.
Other Thoughts: Three beginners were very well met by this track today, had a ton of fun.

Pros: You can just do the first 7 holes over and over if you dont have time for a full round and they go very fast. Otherwise doing the full 12 is a blast when you have more time.
Cons: Can be very crowded in peak hours and the non regular disc golfers can be very rude and unaware of disc golfing edicate. Keep an eye out for any attempted distruction on the course as I have seen kids jumping on the baskets and damaging what they can.
Other Thoughts: the back woods tees (the last 5) could use either concrete tee boxes or some more wood chips at a minimum. seems like some of them are always completely swamped after a good rain...

Pros: first seven holes are fairly open and five are nicely wooded. nothing is over 400FT. great beginner course. alot of technical shots through and around trees. alomst all the holes are achieveable for aces, atleast in theory(exception #12) very nice 12 hole course!!! love my home course! only a few blocks away!!!
Cons: when school gets out the course gets hella over crowded. #4 and #5 gets pulled for winter sledding. beward of dog walkers in the woods, the other half of the park is a dog park and they wander over onto holes 8-12.
Other Thoughts: the course i learned to play on. this course can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Pros: Very well maintained
Good mix of open and closed holes
Some difficult lines to hit, and trees to make it challenging.
12 ends the course with an extremely challenging hole
Cons: Pretty much a birdie or nothing course except hole 12
Can get very crowded and wait time is long
Other Thoughts: The residents around the park hate the course. I've heard stories of some guy mowing his lawn and when a disc was thrown near his yard, he entered the park and ran over the disc with the lawn mower, then returned to his yard.

Pros: Beautiful course, it gives some great open holes as well as some amazing wooded holes. Hole #11 is worth trip to this course.
Cons: For first timers, it is easy to get lost in the woods. There is only 1 or two holes were you can really let your disc fly. Hole #12 seems a little excessive to finish the course.
Other Thoughts: Can be busy, you should try to hit it on the off hours.
Parts of the course can remind you of Northern Minnesota!

Pros: This course presents a wide variety of shot options. By far the BEST maintained public disc golf course in Minnesota.
Cons: For those with big arms, there is only 1 hole (#4) 370 ft. that you can even sort-of let it "air-out"
There are a few tee areas that are not even close to level (#9, #12)

Beware of beginners when teeing off on #3, as they will be throwing right at you when they are on hole #2.
Other Thoughts: This would be the best public (free) course in the state if they were to add 6 more and re-arrange a few existing holes to provide a bit more of a challenge.

Pros: And now.. for the news from the Lake Wobogon DG Club.. where all the courses are pretty and all the throwers are above average....

Short 12 hole course with a good mix of open and tight fairways. There are some major elevation changes and the course is well marked. Open enough anyone can play it enjoyably. But varied enough that veteran players will not be bored.
Cons: For a short course, this one will hand you your discs and send you packing if you're not on your A game (whatever level your A game is). If you think about your shots and place them where you want them to go, you can manage this course easily without it managing you.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the area and have an extra hour, take the time to play this course. Bring water with you, though.. the elevation changes makes parts of this feel like a cross country hike not a DG course.
