Pros: Lombard Short is a wide open grass course with baskets that play next to usually one or two trees in wide open areas. You can likely buzz or use a putter for almost every hole. Good course for mid range and buzz or putter driving practice, most holes are aceable if you can throw 300.
Cons: Lot's of walkers right through the middle of the park at times, when it's windy there's not much protection, Hole 2 plays very close to the infield of a baseball field that almost always has 5 yr olds... so try not to kill one! half the course is dirt tees that can get muddy.
Other Thoughts: If there's a lot of rain, the course will be a lake. Give it a couple days.

Good compliment to Madison Meadows
Pros: A good warm up or cool down course after playing 18 holes nearby. Short and good for a relaxing round not too much challenge.
Cons: Tends to have a lot of people around the park. Short holes make it easier than most courses.
Other Thoughts: This course is just a few blocks away from larger and more stretched out Madison Meadows.

Pretty good Disc Golf course.
Pros: -There are always parking spots
-Concrete tee pads,
-Wooden sign posts that are in nice condition and not vandalized
-Pretty nice baskets not as many chains but still alright
-Some elevation actually
-Pro tee pads
-Bathrooms by Hole #1
-Beginner friendly and open if you like that. -Benches placed between holes to rest. -Garbage cans placed on holes #1, and #8. -The Park is well maintained and clean.
-Good place for Night Disc Golf and is the only course I Night Disc at
-Good amount of Ace runs
-Hole #7 and #8 are favorites of mine and add flavor to the otherwise open bleak layout.
-Mulch underneath the Baskets
Cons: -A little to wide open, even for beginners.
-Pro tee's are hard to find, and people new to the course will have to ask locals to find them as there marked by certain trees.
-The park is insanely crowded on Weekday/Weekend afternoons and evenings, but not too crowded.
-A Playground comes into play on hole #3 somewhat (right side of fairway.)
-It seems like every year they take out a good few mature trees and this course just becomes even more open and bleak.
-Course floods pretty easily
-Sometimes there are big family parties or events going on and it makes the course hard to play
Other Thoughts: This course is pretty nice for what it is and well maintained. If you visited this course several years ago (2001-2002) it has changed and is now more open as one reviewer said.

Pros: Fun course to play, good for practicing your all around game. Open, few trees but 2 really challenging holes.
Cons: Most of the trees are taken out thanks to the 17 year locusts. Almost too easy for good players.
Other Thoughts: If you are starting to throw farther and like to air it out, don't come here. I found last summer after playing here for a month, I got worse at its big brother a few blocks away: Madison Meadows.
