An Odd Mixture of Holes

Pros: The course gets off to a great start with an easily reachable downhill hole that righties will love and this lefty struggled with both times (a bogie and a long birdie putt). The 2nd is a steeply elevated hole that actually has a handrail to climb!

The course continued in that fashion, with a great mix of distances, right, left, straight, and angles and slopes that required you to think about your shots through the 10th hole.

The only other truly great hole is the signature 17th, a beast of a distance hole with a double dogleg through the woods and over a small arroyo.
Cons: Three holes on the slope are virtually the same (2, 9, and 18) on the hill through the woods, though these are quite challenging holes.

After the 10th hole you emerge onto a small city park that is utterly flat and of mixed use. Holes 11-15 are virtually the same hole in the 190-220 foot range and they offer almost no challenge.
Other Thoughts: It's very difficult to rate this course. There clearly seems to be a lot of land near the 1st hole that could be used to make a better course and eliminate most of the flat holes (by keeping them toward the back edge near the more wooded area and away from the playground). It's really no fun to play those upper holes and if there is some area to add 3 holes on the hilly and wooded area, it would be better to only have 2 difficult and challenging ones in the flat part of the course.

Pros: Fun course with good use of hills and elevation changes. Front 9 is relatively challenging. Good tee pads and plenty of benches.
Cons: Back 9 is short and kind of lack luster.
Other Thoughts: Decent course with multiple tee pad options for beginners and experienced players.

Pros: It probably would have helped if I had come through the correct park entrance for the course, but I ended up playing it 6-5 but that didn't detract from the flow.

Plays trough a nice park, the signage is very good and easy to tell where almost every basket is. There are benches on almost every hole, and since some of the holes are up and down pretty good inclines(great use of elevation at this course) you might need them.

I liked the layout, stars out with some right wooded holes and the opened up on 5 for a nice longer hole, then through the woods again until 10 where you play a bunch of park style shorter holes. Tons of ace runs here but plent of trees to spoil those plans.

The teepads were mostly covered in snow but the few I could see were decent sized concrete pads framed with wood.

Baskets were great DGA baskets and in good shape.

The course mostly plays kind of short but 17 is a fantastic long dogleg right. A bunch of deer ran across the frozen creek as I threw my drive and in the quiet twilight it was quite stunning.

I liked this park a lot, the facilities were nice, and the playgrounds would be fun if you had kids with you.
Cons: Course plays kind of short, not terribly but only one over 400 and about 5 more over 300.

Could use some tree trimming, as a result of thick growth(even in winter) there are a few of the wooded holes with just one route.

Another reviewer said this but pick up the trash guys. This course could be really really nice I it were a touch cleaner.

Some of the baskets are on top of the next pad, I bet a few people have gotten hit on an overthrow
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great place for a round, I really liked the flow is nice and I bet it's a grat place during the warmer months as well.

I'd play it again, though if I'd had more time, is have gone to RR.

Grignon review

Pros: The course is fun, and takes you all over the place at the park. Going up and down hills, along streams, and threw many trees. It's definitely a course for someone who isn't quite pro, but is more than a beginner. You'll find out a lot how your accuracy and throwing capabilities are on the many types of holes. Holes 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 17, and 18 are the more challenging, whereas all the other holes are fairly easy shots.
Cons: The course hasn't been maintained in a few years. The trees, shrubs, bushes, etc. are growing in and making throwing lanes hard to go through. Holes 2, 3, 9, and 18 could use some type of stair in the hillside to help going up and down on wet days.

The trash cans that are there, are almost always over flowing and crap is just everywhere from that. Someone in the Rec. Dept. needs to stop by at least once a week and check the garbage out, it seems like once every so often they get dumped.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this course to anyone, just to say they've been there. I go there very often, because every time I go there is always that feeling that one day I could ace just about every hole, except the few that are out of reach for many player.

Nice Challenge

Review By: reddog49866
Played: 4  Reviewed: 2  Exp: 6.2 Years
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: Nice variation of holes and elevation.
Cons: So much garbage on the ground. WTF is wrong with people.
Other Thoughts: Expect lots of disc golf players to be here on a nice day. If you want the course to yourself come early morning.

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.

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.
