Pros: +At least a little elevation on every hole keeps it interesting. Hole 2 and 3 were pretty big elevation changes.
+Easy to follow layout.
+2 tees on each hole make it easy for you to play 20 slightly different holes.
+Tees are concrete and are off adequate size
+The holes are on the shorter side overall but there are some slightly longer holes especially 9 and 10.
+The course loops around to the parking lot nicely.
+The course is fairly lightly wooded as long as you stay on the fairway. If you get off the fairway it can get a bit harder. This course fairly punishes errant shots.
+This course is on the shorter side so it offers ace runs for many levels of players while still offering a bit of challenge and risk-reward play for more experienced players.
+Baskets are older but still catch just fine.
Cons: -Lots of really, really slow players. Some just sitting at tees smoking weed. It could take you a long time to get through 10 holes. It is the only course in a large suburb.
-The two sets of tees weren't that different, certainly not worth being called separate holes.
-Like many old courses, this one is suffering from erosion issues.
-Losing a disc is possible, especially on those holes that involve sumac along the fairways.
Other Thoughts: +This course is older and quite busy. Most of its issues stem from these two. It has some erosion, is quite busy, and isn't challenging compared to newer championship style course.
+This course is worth a stop. It had a high fun factor for me. I would avoid evenings and weekends, it could be really busy. This course is comparable to other nearby courses like Brockway and Alimagnet.

Quality without the 'wow'

Pros: Free-to-play, 10-hole course with alternate cement tees. A good course, has a little bit of everything, short/long-ish, open/wooded, flat/hilly. Great wood-chipped paths and putting areas in some cases.
Cons: It just seems very vanilla. Several holes seem to me to be nearly identical. A lot of mostly open rhbh hyzer shots.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth playing if you haven't. You walk away going "meh, it's good, just not THAT good."

Pros: Good City Course - It has Cement Tee Pads with Good Signage....It is a relatively easy course to navigate (for a new-comer)....Provides great diversity with the given land and Hole 10 comes right back to Hole 1 (which is always an advantage...Especially considering this course is technically a 20 Hole Course with 2 seperate Tee Pads for each Basket)
Cons: A bit short and the Pars seem to be off! Hole 9/19 & 10/20 are potential Par 4's but every Hole should certainly be played as a Par 3!
Other Thoughts: Fun Course in the Heart of Minneapolis's Suburb Culture! There was 1 1/2 inches of Snow on the ground when I played here and yet there were, still, 3 other groups out playing!.....If you are traveling along I-494 or 35W in the Twin Cities area, it is worth a stop!.....This course provides distance, technicallity and some elevation that will keep you challenged......Yet is not a true 'Challenge' Course! (For example.....River or Mountain Courses)....Overall a Fun One and can relieve the stess of the City!

Pros: Very fun course for beginers and people who play daily. Each pin has 2 tee's on it so you get double the course in the same area.
Holes are spread out and vary in difficulty.
The last time I was there a Jimmy Johns delivery guy was walking through with free sandwiches advertising that the local store delivers to the course and that they will even deliver out to the specific hole you are on.
Cons: The brush here can be very thick unforgiving. Whether its because of the thorns slashing at your hands, or that they are so good at eating discs, you really don't want to stray off the fairway here.

Pros: My favorite part of this course is the big trees and narrow fairways. Even on the few holes that are out in the open, the fairways are groomed to be about 30 ft across. The pin placements seem to be well thought out and not just slapped into a bunch of trees, and the slight elevation changes can become a challenge. This is a very enjoyable course to play for players of different skill. Also, this course does not seem to get as much traffic as others in the area, which to me is an added bonus.
Cons: The dirt tee boxes can get a bit muddy, but I read a review that said that will change.
Other Thoughts: Keep an eye on your drives till they finish here because once you get off the fairway it can be a jungle.
