Pros: Located in a small uncrowded park where the course won't interfere with other activities. They do an excellent job using the hillside and woods to make for a surprisingly challenging round. There were homemade wood signs by every tee with hole #, a hand drawn directional to the pin and shot shape needed and distance. There also were a number of next tee signs to guide you between holes as there are a few longer walks. Very nice brand new red powdercoated baskets that catch well. There is also a practice basket right before hole one which is always nice. Awesome variety for a nine holer, with great uphill and downhill bombs and left, straight and right turning shots. A very well rounded course in this regard.
Cons: The tee pads are rough. The ones on the hillside are not level and although it was dry when we went I would imagine they get very muddy after rain. The signs serve their purpose but i could see these getting stolen or broken which would make the course impossible to play if you were new to it. A few holes on the hillside have basically no real path to the basket, you just got to throw and hope it somehow gets through. I was confused as to where to start as there is no signs. When pulling into the parking lot you will see a basket to your right. This is the practice basket with hole 1 being just northeast of the practice basket throwing up the hill.
Other Thoughts: All in all this was one of the more challenging nines i've played. It's still a relatively new course so maybe they'll trim some trees, add concrete or gravel tees, and upgrade the signage. This is why i gave it a 2.5 instead of a 3. Not worth a long trip just for this, but with Tendick Nature Park about ten minutes away in Saukville it makes for a fun day of discing.

Pros: 1)Decent distance holes
2)Baskets are easily visible
3)Hole 3 is a nice down hill shot
4)Hole 5 is a tricky blind shot
5)Hole 7 is a straigh way
Cons: 1)Some of the ground is rough from the course being newly made.
2)They have pretty basic signs for the holes.
3)Hole 1 has a lot of thorns so watch out.
Other Thoughts: They cleaned up the course a bit so its not as rough. The course is decent i think for being made on such short notice. They also left it open at the end for a possible 18 hole course some day. Overall i thought i was an okay course.
