 Solid Course for Macomb Area

Pros: The course is generally accessible to anyone who wants to play. Pace of play will not be an issue, the only potential obstacle will be a few park goers that tend to lay out on some of the holes. Just be polite and they will acknowledge your right of way.

The course itself offers a good balance of holes. The front 9 is the shorter of the two, and offers a mix of birdie chances with tight approaches. These holes are a lot more tree-laden, rewarding accurate drives and punishes wayward tee shots and approaches.

The back 9 is longer and aside from holes 11 and 17 much more open. The length will make it more difficult to shorter throwers, but the overall challenge will make it very enjoyable to the veteran disc golfer.

There are a few water fountains on the course and plenty of shaded areas to make the course comfortable. There are also picnic tables for a snack and the trash is kept to a minimum.
Cons: The course is not very friendly to novice disc golfers. The tree shots can be frustrating and the length on some holes will make it difficult to find confidence in the game.

The markers on the course are fairly explanatory, so finding your way between the holes is not too difficult. The concrete tee pads are well maintained, and the baskets are in nice condition as well.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course is a nice blend of everything you could ask for on a disc golf course. For the area, it is one of the best courses to really gauge how far along you have come as a player.

 Macomb is long.

Pros: The park is a very well kept and peaceful park. It has some minor rolling hills with large trees throughout. There are only a few spots with rough. Hole #1 is pretty hard to find.

It is really long and difficult. 14 holes are over 300 feet. This is an advanced/pro calibur course. You get to go out there and rip some drives.

Solid design with a variety of shots.

Nice concrete tee pads and Mach 3 baskets.
Cons: Print out a course map. The tees are very difficult to find and this course is hard to navigate.

The walk from #9 to #10 is ridiculously long.

This course lacks really tight shots and rough to warrant a rating of 4.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you play the 9 hole course in the middle of WIU's campus. It's a great course to play at night.

Check out my Illinois Top 10.

Pros: This is a fantastic course that has..... well everything. Wooded shots, open shots, short, long, elevation changes. Concrete tee pads. Great baskets.

I know anyone who vists once will be destined to come back again.
Cons: Has no signs and is difficult to navigate if you have no map. Hole one was hard to find I ended up starting on 8.
Other Thoughts: I went to college here back in the 80's and was already familiar with the park. I drew the course layout on a piece of paper and was able to find all the holes. This course has so much room for expansion I wonder what it will look like in 20 years.
