A Young Course on the Rise
Pros: The course has a great flow to it, it begins around water, dips into the woods, and then out into the open, and finishes with a throw over water. The teepads are nice and long, adequate for some of the long holes the back 9 has. The pictures of this course are a bit dated, as the grass has grown, it's not muddy, and I played this course just one day after rain. The signs are nice, and provide all the necessary information. The kiosk at the beginning is large, and provides a lot of info as well. There are several trash cans throughout the course, so please use them. It's a young course, but it's growing rapidly. There are a nice mix of lefts, rights, longs, shorts, and water throws. You will be happy with the variety it gives.
Cons: The course still being fairly new, does have several holes that are extremely wide open. The park has planted many trees along these holes, so as they grow and mature, the difficulty will go up significantly. The water holes aren't extremely daunting, but a newbie can easily lose a disc if your throws aren't that great. It was extremely windy when I played today, and it created havoc with my throws, but I still didn't lose a disc in water. Just keep that in mind.
Other Thoughts: Parking is a little far from the beginning and the end of the course, but not so much where it bothered me. If you play this course with the brand new Cupertino's Course down the road in St. Meinrad, they compliment each other well for a good day of 27 holes of disc golf. This course will get better as it ages as well, and with a little care, it may be able to crack a 4. For an area that for years was completely devoid of courses, this is a nice addition!

course conditions much improved
Pros: Grass is in good shape all over course now. Pictures of holes 6-17 are out of date-the grass is nice and mown and the dirt is firm.
Very nice benches and trashcans installed on several holes now.
Great signs and tee pads, along with professional hole design.
Very well taken care of all over. I saw no litter at all.
Not crowded. At 5:30pm on a Monday I was only guy on course. one walker/bicyclist [same person].
Cons: Not much shade on ~2/3rds of the course. trees and young and small
Not much parking, a quite a bit of walking

Thanks for the update and complement - new courses need time to "grow in" and it is good to here the park is being maintained as planned. HB - designer and installer of the course.
Pros: The course is still fairly new and going through the growing pains that most new courses will go through. The front 4 holes are around a lake and make you reconsider your shot selection, but as long as you play the holes smart you shouldn't have many problems. Hole 5 is a tight tunnel shot. The rest of the course is fairly open with a mix of trees and water shots on several holes. Good tee pads on all holes.
Cons: The course was still recovering from the reseeding last fall, but as long as the maintenance is kept up on the course it should grow in well. More trash cans needed. The course was clean, but with more use that might be a problem in the future. Benches along the course would also be a plus.
Other Thoughts: All in all a good course to let it air out.
