Pros: Great use of the elevation. Holes 1-9 are great fun. Very challenging with great shot lanes. Made great use of the environment in the hole design. Navigation was not difficult, I had someone with who has played there before. Even without them I don't think I would have had a problem. Course flowed quite well. Finding discs that went astray was not an issue overall usually took about 3 minutes if they were deep in there. Plenty of trash cans
Cons: Trash everywhere. The hills are very steep. Might consider putting stairs in perhaps? Not to much wrong with this course in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: Pick up after yourselves people.

Pros: - Course has a nice variety in elevation.
- Free to play
Cons: - Very short holes on back nine. Good for aces, but not challenging to intermediate or advanced players.
- The back nine has a few holes that you shoot towards the road. This is a problem since these holes are really short.
- Back nine has a playground next to multiple holes.
- Garbage everywhere. Not just in certain locations, but all over the course.
- Paper mill smell can be vary, very pungent.
- Muddy on some holes.
Other Thoughts: - Busy, busy, busy.
- Very, very inconsiderate players here They will throw when you are still playing the hole.
- Awesome course for new players. They shouldn't feel too overwhelmed with it.
Overall, Grignon is an OK course. With some work it could be a really good park.

Pros: What a great mix of holes. The first hole starts off the fun with a long downhill shot to a tucked pin. Awesome starting hole. Holes 10-16 are all ace'able, which makes it fun. I am usually needing a few birdies by then so that is a great section of the course. Tee pads are ok. There are a number of benches and tables throughout the course for resting, wink, wink. Most basket areas have a good layer of wood chips. The 8th hole is my fav. It involves a river and lots of great lines to pick from. Most of park is dedicated to disc golf. Nice little putting area near 1st tee with a pavilion to.
Cons: Can be a bit slow going due to many of the short holes, lots of people/leagues and lots of breaks are the picnic tables. 3 can be dangerous when walking to 4 tee. The shorter holes can be to easy at times. I like the short ones but I think there are a few to many, but what do I know. Garbage cans have always been over flowing. I have played here more than 20 times and I have never seen the garbage cans without trash piled up around the can because it's so full.
Other Thoughts: Really like this course. Just a tip.....I wear my golf shoes when I play here. Some of the holes go up a mud hill and can be tough walking. Have fun. I know I do.

Very fun 18 holer
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The course plays through a beautiful, mostly wooded park in Kaukauna near Appleton. There are 18 holes here and the variety of hole types is top notch. The baskets are Mach 3's and were all in very good shape and caught well. There is a large board with a very descriptive course map in the parking area. The flow of the course is pretty easy to follow. There is a great deal of very drastic elevation throughout the course. This coupled with the more heavily wooded areas make for a tough but very fun round. There are hand rails running up a few of the steeper hills which is pretty cool. The tee pads are 5'x10' of level, grippy concrete. There were 2 sets of pads on most if not all the holes which is a plus. The tee signs were also very nice. They had a basic hole diagram with the different tee locations, par, hole # and distances. A stream running through the park comes into play on 3 holes as well. It's not a super deep stream either so it won't eat up your discs. The park was well maintained with a pavilion at the first tee and benches and trash cans throughout. The fairways and paths between holes were all heavily wood chipped which is great on wooded courses like this. The course starts and ends back at the parking.
Cons: There are a few (5 to 7) holes on the back nine that are all like standard flat public park holes. These all kind of seem to run together and feel the same. They do have multiple mature trees to deal with but they lack the feel of the front 9 and the last 3 holes. These are also pretty close to the road and a few of the holes could be dangerous because of errant shots. It is also one of the better courses if not the best in the area that are free to play so I would imagine it can get very crowded. The parking lot is also pretty small for such a nice course.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the area I'd highly recommend visiting Grignon. To me it would be a toss up between here and Plamann if I could only play one. This is definitely better than the 4 nine holers that are nearby. We played Pierce, Tellulah, Kimberly H.S., Kaukauna Jr., Grignon, and both Plamann park courses in one day which made for an AWESOME day of discing. But if you don't have time for all of that I'd put this one right near, if not at the top of all of these. I'll be back here whenever I'm in the area for sure.

Pros: Beautiful 18 hole course. Nice spread out front 9 with a tight back nine. Everything you want to see in a course, Grignon's got it!
Cons: Up until today I have not had a problem. I was followed on the front nine holes by what I can only assume to be a undercover officer; he even skipped putting on most holes as I was played extremely fast in order to try to get ahead of him so I can relax and enjoy my time. He walked off into the woods on hole 6 in the opposite direction of the parking lot where the course begins. Then on hole 8 another group of 3 emerged from the woods out of nowhere as soon as I sat down on a pic-nic table and began preparing some food from my backpack. I said hello and they just stared back at me...I threw my driver then looked back and they slowly crept back into the woods. After hole 8 I played hole 18 which brings you back to the parking lot (start of course) and low and behold the first man who was following me was magically there and on his cell phone looking through cars. Wow...Just pathetic that they would stoop to this level.
Other Thoughts: I used to recommend this course to everyone, but now I don't know... They used to pull this same time of harassing behavior at another local course (Tellulah), but that course has been turned into a small nine hole.what a shame. I hope they don't ruin this one too!

Fun course to play.
Concrete pads with benches near by.
Mach 3 pins.
Some open holes and some wooded.
Garbage cans and vending machines.
Open year round.
Great park to play a round of night disc golf.
Cons: The back 9 has some short very similar in style holes.
Can smell like ass if the wind in blowing in the wrong direction.
Small parking lot for some busy days.
Other Thoughts: Fun course with a couple really well done holes. Worth stopping to check out if your in the area to disc golf.
A mix of shots.

Pros: Multiple tee pads on most of the holes. Front 9 is quite technical from the long tees and between short and long there is quite a difference. 1 and 3 are blind from the longs where as shorts arent. 2 and 4 share tee pads which can make all longs a little difficult on crowded days. 4 long is becoming a canyon shot. 5 wide open from both. 6 short is an anny or forehand where 6 long becomes a placement drive and not the easiest as discs tend to skip on the rocks(fun hole). 7 same shot both pads but long brings a V tree into play but great shots at both locations can bring up 2s, water near the basket creating a peninsula to throw onto, ground is hard here and discs tend to skip. 8 short is an easy hyzer long is a nice s curve. Water in ply on this hole. 7 and 8 used to be short easy holes but have been made more difficult since the course was put in. 9 short up hill. 10 easy from short, long brings in more trees. 11 straight. 12 fairly straight with and large tree in your view. 13 14 and 15 are fairly short with some trees. 16 long tunnel shot with some routes to the sides. 17 the best hole on the course. Hard to get a 3 here as placement shots are critical. Water on this hole as well. Tunnel shot with water on the left and rough to the left. 18 used to be straight up the hill now dogleg right. Narrow fairway requires a good straight shot.
Cons: Hole 4 is getting a little over grown. Back 9 can be a little scary cause errant shots pose a danger to many others if its crowded. Some danger of getting hit by errant shots. Afternoons and warm spring days are not recommended as it can be very crowded then, stick to the morning or early after noon.
Other Thoughts: Overall one of my favorites ive played. Not super long by any means just technical which is fun. Back 9 is nice relief for a bad front nine. Some holes have changed a bit since I first played there 7 and 8 are longer and more difficult but much more interesting. hole 10 is also moved but not much more difficult. 12 was moved and im glad as I have 3 aces on that hole. 17 is one of the best holes in the area. Difficult from both locations and easy to wreck a round. Short tee is duecable but ive never actually seen it happen just some close calls. High speed drivers arent really necessary here as a few fairway drivers mids and putters will do the trick. Benches on all the holes is also a plus.

Pros: The course has huge elevation changes on many of the holes throughout the course. There is a great variety of hyzer, straight and anhyzer shots as well as a few holes with multiple lines to the basket. Many of the baskets have challenging putting greens that are either on hill sides or have drop off's close to the basket. A creek comes into play on a few of the holes which adds to the challenge of the course even though you can easily retrieve your disc.
The course is a bit on the short side, but I believe it still has a fairly good variety of hole length. It has two pads on most of the holes to cater to players of all skill level. The course has nice tee signs that list rec par. The course is mostly wooded and although it is a little short, it challenges you to hit your lines and scramble for par when you don't. There is some dense rough, mainly on the front so stay in the fairways. Hole 17 is a great pro par 4 forcing you to decide if you want to lay up for your second shot or go for it and try to make the right turn into the tunnel.
There are nice benches on nearly all the holes and drink machines by the parking lot.
Cons: My biggest con on this course is holes 11-15. They're all the short, 200 ft holes near the street side of the park. They have some mature trees allowing you to shape different lines to the basket which is nice, but they feel repetitive and like a big let down after the fun and challenging front 9. Thankfully the course finishes strong with holes 16-18 which are all quality holes. It feels like the holes on the street side of the park are a little close together and bad shots can easily interfere with another fairway or tee pad.
I imagine the hills could be treacherous when wet although I haven't experienced that first hand. There are nice handrails to help you up these hills so that's very good.
The long pads on 3, 6 and 8 force extremely difficult, borderline impossible lines to even have a remote chance at a birdie. They have curves in the fairways or force S shots that are just not very reasonable.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fun, challenging course definitely worth playing if you're in the area. It could be a little tough on new players with the dense rough and on older players with the extreme hills.
