Pros: A confidence friendly course ,not hard to score a good round. Good variety for a 9 hole.
Cons: Tees aren't well marked (i used a range finder to figure out the actual tee off spot) ,and are grass/dirt.
Other Thoughts: Fun course for every level of player.

Pros: Good variety of elevation.
Reasonable difficulty level.
Interesting hole variety with obstructions and turns.
Cons: Not very kind to new players since lanes are narrow and the woods are thick.
No permanent tee boxes.
Watch for Ticks!
Other Thoughts: Luckily I had someone take me to this course or it would be a little tricky to find and navigate. It was enjoyable but make sure you wear pants because some hole are lined with pricker bushes. We left with cuts all over our legs.

Pros: Good use of elevation and good basket locations. Nice-looking course. All holes are straight shots with moderate distance. Every holes has a little different look. Tee boxes are good.
Cons: The fairways are narrow and surrounded by thickets and tall grass so it's easy to loose discs. There are also many mosquitoes, deer flies and ticks. There is one long walk between a couple of the holes. Parking area is not very close to tee one. Navigation could be tricky at start and between 6-7 for first-timers. Paved path comes into play on a couple holes.
Other Thoughts: I liked each hole a lot. None really stand out from the others. Worth a trip combined with the 5 courses to the south in Barron County.

Pros: Nice layout, with elevation changes, some trees, distance and OB concrete.
Maps on all the holes
Challenging nine hole course
Cons: Wood ticks are insane here
Natural tee-pads, almost non-existent
Really thick brush and briar patches in some spots
Layout gets a little confusing, with a long walk from #3 to #4 and some back-tracking from #6 to #7
Other Thoughts: This is a fun and challenging nine hole course. There are some fairly long holes at about 450 ft, and lots of hazards with the thick brush. Hole #3 is a hole that has some of the worse briar patches, leave your disc short or to the right or you'll end with some cut up legs and/or a lost disc. There is some really thick brush and and the briar patches and thorns are bad in some spots, and the wood ticks are abundant.
There is a nice variety of holes and obstacles on this course, especially for just a nine hole. Overall, it's a fun course and has a decent replay value.

  Wear long pants or else

Pros: The course itself is not too bad. The holes are uniquely different and the layout of the course is well done with plenty of challenges. The area is nice and the course itself is never very crowded.
Cons: All the pros are instantly wiped out when you realize you are playing disc golf in an entire brier patch. The entire course is swarmed by thorned plants which range in size from waist high and incredibly dense, to the fairways where they are chopped down and it's like walking over a bunch of cut down bushes. Unless you throw perfect shots routinely, you will spend a lot of time looking for your disc in these areas and it is possible to find many discs as most people will just give up (myself included, I lost one disc but found two others).
Other Thoughts: All in all, it's hard to recommend this course simply due to the fact that every hole at every turn is just thorn bushes. It is virtually impossible to avoid them even in the fairways. You will either bleed profusely if you wear shorts or cut up your pants. You have been warned!!!

Pros: This schoolyard nine will keep you interested if you decide to make the tiny jaunt off the highway into Spooner. A pretty setting for refreshingly long holes (though the tee sign measurements seemed to overstate the length, and some played downhill). Elevation is used in subtle and not-so-subtle ways to add challenge. Hole 5 is a signature hole: drive across a dip and some OB paths, onto a sort of ridge with trees and downward slopes on either side, then approach up to a protected pin, over 400 feet in all. Signage is already great, with room for more navigational hints to be added. I commend the course creators for negotiating coexistence for DG and what look like cross-country skiing/hiking/running trails.
Cons: The tees are truly natural! There are tee signs with no indication of a flat pad from which to throw. Most holes have very few tree obstacles, but wind, elevation, and some vegetation near the baskets help. Holes 1-3 were monotonous, being of similar length and traversing a wide-open path up the same slight incline.
Other Thoughts: I played this course in some shallow midwinter snow, but the terrain looks rugged enough to grow disc-eating rough in the summer. I gather that there are improvements and additions coming soon, hence the title of my review. The walk from basket 3 to tee 4 is longer than you think! Follow the left arrow sign straight all the way to a T with another walking path, then turn left for 100 feet or so and look for the tee up the hill to your right. After holing out on 6, you will be tempted to approach tee 9, but instead backtrack across the paved walking path to tee 7.
