I feel this place is underrated.
Pros: *Nice location
*Good difficulty curve
*Nice variability of terrain
*Restrooms nearby most of the time
*Multiple pin positions
*Wont be stepping on other players due to layout
Cons: *A bit flat on the front half
*Park closes at sundown
*Kinda pricy at $6 a carload to play
*Tall fence nearby on a few holes
Other Thoughts: This is the newest course I have played, and having Stockton as my previous closest course, I was elated to learn of this place. I enjoy it much more. The pins are varied, and there is a road in the park area you will have to mind the traffic at times, which is OB. There are a fair number of Dog Legs, all reasonable. The pins are all pretty good distance, 250-450ft mostly upping the difficulty in the few cases where the shot is pretty straightforward. Some blind shots and elevation changes up the ante. I have not experienced the mud issue I've read about here. On the back nine, there is a dirt area, then goes to grass, to me this terrain variability greatly enhances the experience. The established trees and natural obstacles all make for an enjoyable course. Recommended.
No Micke Mouse course!

Pros: I love how many trees there are to contend with here! Frustrating at times, but that just makes the good shots feel that much better. Only one other person on the course, and he was super friendly. This course is as cute as the Pudu Pudus at the Zoo onsite.
Cons: Flat, and not too long.
Other Thoughts: I came to Micke Grove about 3 years ago with my family to visit the parks and zoo, and thought back then it would be a great grounds for disc golf. Well, my wish came true, and designers didn't disappoint! I thought it would be easy, but turned out to be quite technical, yet leisurely. Very enjoyable.
Uniqueness: A- (similar to nearby Oak Grove, but shorter & with more trees)
Difficulty: A- (trees, OB, more trees, flat)
Fun Factor: A (surprisingly challenging, rewarding birdies)
Aesthetics: A- (clean, some grassy areas, good layout for limited space)

Best course in the area

Pros: Brand new baskets.
Hole 18 ends at Tee 1.
Baskets change location every week or so.
Easy to navigate.
Most of the trees are skinny or small.
PVC pipe availible for fetching discs.
Well groomed course.
Cons: Long distance from Basket 6 to Tee 7.
Hole 12 is sometimes in real whack position way off to the right.
A couple of the front holes are boring.
Other Thoughts: If you park on the North Side of the outer fence you don't need to pay and can start on Hole 14, ending right where you started on Hole 13 for a fun 18. BE CAREFUL! THERE IS NO PARKING ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE OUTER FENCE.
