Pros: As a whole, this park is a wonderful accomplishment of the Glen Ellyn Parks Department. It offers a bunch of different activities (such as disc golf, platform tennis, playgrounds and mini-golf, and maybe others!), yet seems to avoid the congestion issue of these activities getting in the way of one another. As far as the course goes...

*Seems to have solid maintenance.

*Good baskets and tee pads.

*Uses trees to shape some lines

*Has some distance variety
Cons: Don't plan on making this course a destination stop on your dg roadtrip. It is far from a world class course.

*Overall pretty short distances

*Not much difficulty on holes, even where lines are shaped.

*The signs here seemed inaccurate... I dont know this for sure, but they just didn't seem consistent
Other Thoughts: This is a nice little course. If I lived in Glen Ellyn I would probably come here all the time.

Also, it's a nice park with a lot of activities. Maybe the large demographic of park users will attract new people to the sport of disc golf (I know I am now interested in learning what platform tennis is).

Pros: -Nice tee pads, probably the best compared to the others at near by courses.
-Course is usually not very crowded.
-Park was clean and well maintained.
-Baskets in good condition
-Course tucked away in its own area of the park
-Doesn't seem to flood as much as other courses nearby.
Few holes have several nice mature trees.
-Grass is always cut.
-Good amount of parking.
Cons: -No tee signs as of yet, I think they will be added at a later point in time, perhaps this summer even.
-Holes can become a little repetitive.
-Not enough obstacles.
-Some holes are pretty close to each other.
-Some fairways have homes that can come into play with an errant shot, be careful!
-Could use some benches to rest at in between holes.
-Addition of few more trash cans would be greatly appreciated.
Other Thoughts: This course is still pretty new, hopefully it will continue to get better as it matures. This is a very nice park, located in a great town! As a previous poster pointed out this is more of a neighborhood course than a destination course.

Pros: This course is located in a very nice area and a very well kept park. It has a few scattered trees and slightly rolling hills. After you enter the parking lot head to the southwest corner. Don't confuse #3's tee pad with #1. #1's tee pad is just north of the brown shed and plays west. #3's tee is directly behind the shed and plays south.

Brand new Innova baskets.

Large and level to the ground cement tee pads.

Easy to navigate. Friendly beginner course.
Cons: There are no tee signs or numbers on the tees.

The tees have new dirt laid around them. Once grass takes they will be very nice. Until then it's going to be super muddy. Every tee has fresh dirt around them.

It's pretty wide open with very few obstacles.

I felt the slightly rolling hillsides could have been used to make a few greens more interesting.
Other Thoughts: It will be interesting to see if the neighbors have a problem with this course and if it lasts. There are some super nice expensive houses that line the course.

This course sits just minutes off I355. If you get caught is traffic this isn't a bad place to stop for a while. There is a nice miniature golf course in the park as well.
