The course is actually a rolling meadow
Pros: Although 12 holes, this course still gets a 3 for me. Here's why:
+They made great use of the land. The rolling meadows with trees really works nicely.
+The baskets are professional grade, and that's always more challenging.
+The creek runs through the middle of the course and comes into play on many of the holes.
+There are actually 4-5 great par 3's here. Most non-pros will struggle to shoot -3 consistently.
+ #5 is a cool bomber from the top of a sledding hill. Signature hole for sure.
Cons: -the creek is also a huge negative because it is bordered by very tall grass making impossible to actually see where your disc landed.
-the course is a bit repetitive, but not in a terribly bad way.
-pedestrians often come into play because there is a path weaving throughout the course.
Other Thoughts: Not a destination course by any means. Worth checking out if you live close though.
Good for the area
3 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: As far as disc golf goes, this is one of the better courses in this Rolling Meadows area, which is lacking high quality disc golf courses. Several qualities set this course above other nearby courses:
*Distance variety!!! This is this course's best feature. Several of the holes force experienced players to bring out their drivers. The bomb off the sled hill from the "pro" tee of hole 4 is great.
*Shot variety on the shorter holes is interesting enough to be fun!
*Water comes into play on several of the holes
*Best rubber tee pads that I've seen, baskets, and signs
*Good flow (except for the walk to the pro tee for hole 4)
I would like to stress the awesome-ness of hole 4 from the pro tee. It's a 500 foot shot off of a sled hill. Disc golf-wise, there is no reason to play this hole from the short position. It's just not as fun.
Cons: The last comment from the "pros" section can be qualified by citing a pretty big hazard involving the path to the left of the fairway on of 4. It's impossible to see if there are walkers about 200 feet down the fairway. This danger is evident on much of the course... fairways even go right across paths at some point. Be aware and respectful of other park users!
*Many of the holes play pretty wide open.
Other Thoughts: The designers did a good job of making this a fun course, but the design forces disc golfers to be conscious of the others using the park, which limits the rating and popularity this course will have.
