Pros: This course is in the heart of Peru and is free to anyone who enjoys a day in the woods. Features tee signs and trash can at every hole. Concrete tees and a practice basket near the parking lot. There is also a nice shelter that the league uses. Well wooded with alternate hole placements for different looks though I know not who or how they are decided. Good use of elevation. Creek runs through almost entire course. Mostly tight wooded shots with a couple chances to air it out. Recomend to any level player.
Cons: Look out for the natural spring walking to your drive on 18; stepping into that is purely disgusting.

Great for being a public park
Pros: Variety of holes-long/short, wooded/open, flat/elevation changes. Pavilion with picnic tables, creeks make some holes challenging, good signage giving distance and visual maps. Alternate pin locations. benches at every tee, nice tee pads.
Cons: Lack of bridges/crossways over creeks or ravines. Older baskets. A few holes were difficult to find. Long walk from parking lot to first tee.
Other Thoughts: This course was actually a lot of fun to play for my first time. I enjoyed the difficulty of the elevation changes. The creek(s) that run through the course are well integrated into the course design and come into play on many holes. As larry mentioned, there were several holes throwing from an elevated tee or throwing to an elevated basket.
I'd say that 2/3 of the holes were in the woods and the other 1/3 in the more open areas allowing you to let off a bomb on a few holes. Fairways were open allowing you to find a clear path to the basket.
There were a few holes that crossed the creek or a steep ravine that did not have a bridge where I thought one should have been. There were several very steep and tall ridges. I had my disc bounce off of a tree and land on a ~70 degree slope and threw from there; it made for a most interesting shot.
Overall, I'd sum this course up as a must play when in Peru. It is just on the south side of town seperating Honeybear Hollow from Mississiniwa and Peiradise. If you have time, I'd suggest playing this course, but bring your hiking boots and repelling gear.
