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.

My new home course
Pros: A decent 10 hole course in a neighborhood park that also features baseball diamonds, a pool, tennis courts and space for other activities.
-A quick round.
-10 holes (kind of like an amp going up to eleven, bonus!)
-Good flow, it is always obvious where to go next.
-Signs show hole # and distance.
-Good distance variety (for 9 holers in the area).
-I really like hole 7, it has the most restricted flight path on the course, but features two routes and some elevation drop.
-Bathrooms and a vending machine in the bulding to the left of hole 1's fairway.
Cons: -Course is mostly open, with only a few holes requiring you to shape lines.
-Short, narrow tees
-Baskets are beat-up and showing their age.
-Often busy with both golfers/chuckers and dog walkers.
-Course can hold a lot of water, especially on 4 and 9 where a pond sometimes forms.
-Walking path can come into play for the inaccurate on a couple holes.
-The second hole is called hole A, after that it goes on to hole 2-9. This can be confusing your first time playing.
-Hole 9 (the final hole) finishes up near 1's basket. It flows better to walk to the second hole (hole A) after finishing your round if you want to do another loop.
Other Thoughts: Apparently this course was more interesting/challenging before a big storm took out a lot of trees and necesitated the current, open layout.
This course is just south of St. Charles Rd. East of the course on St. Charles are Mickey's hot dog stand and Lunar Brewing. Mickey's is good and reasonably priced, Lunar brews a lot of interesting styles and not too many of the common ones.

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.
