Needs maintenance badly
Pros: Could be a good technical course if cleaned up
Cons: Only hole one is adequately maintained. Every other hole has knee-high or taller grass, weeds, thistle, and nettles.
Other Thoughts: Mosquitos are atrocious in the wooded areas.
Don't even bother adding the back nine unless the front can be maintained better.

Pros: New hole layout on 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 make it much more enjoyable and challenging. Nice range of shots. The new hole 9 will be spectacular once it is cleared and playable!
Cons: The wood were clear cut this past winter leaving some brush piles. (Luckily) the fairways have been cleared
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind the front nine were designed for the school students to learn and play Disc Golf. The school has purchased an additional nine which will be made to be more challenging and longer for the more experienced players. look to see the back nine start to go up towards the end of Summer 2013.

Great work in progress

Pros: The course received a makeover this year and is much improved. Mostly short shots in the woods that require finesse, but there are a couple longer, open holes too. Nice fairways have been cut to make ace runs good (I got #9). Elevation also influences just about every hole. Overall, a very unique setup. Gets little traffic.
Cons: No tee pads. There is currently a tree down on #4, leaving no room for run up. Walk back from #9 to #1 is very long. Area off the fairway are thick with buckthorn, brush and other plantlife that makes getting back on track tough. Navigation could be tough for first-timers. Look for the wood posts to find tees. There are cinder blocks with arrows pointing to the next tee, but not on every hole and they get covered up sometimes. Fairways get a little overgrown due to lack of traffic.
Other Thoughts: There are plans to make a tougher back 9 to tie the whole course together. Judging by the terrain, elevation will be a factor on the back nine, it will be tighter and there will also be some field shots. Unlike many woody courses, this one is not repetitive. Course is great for beginner and intermediate players and I'm sure pros would still find a few of these holes pretty fun. 2,4 and 7-9 are my favorites. Don't overlook Barron County (Barron HS, Reeve, Rice Lake) for fun, intermediate-level disc golf in Northwest WI. There's some good courses to tie together a roadtrip from Eau Claire/Menomonie to far Northern Wisconsin.

Pros: Nice, new baskets.
Quick nine hole layout.
Nice use of elevation and it plays into and out of some woods.
Fairly easy course, making it great for beginners.
Cons: Natural tee-pads.
No maps... yet.
Other Thoughts: This is a new course in the town of Chetek. It's a great course for beginners, as it's relatively short and easy. The layout plays through the woods and there are some nice elevation changes. The course also plays along side the baseball field and near some of the track and field stuff. Hole #9 might be unplayable during the school year when practices are going on.
Advanced players will have fun using this course for ace runs and confidence building rounds.
All in all this is a fun course that can be played pretty quickly. It's in a town with few courses nearby, or courses that are under construction, and it compliments the property it's on. This is a fun course for families, beginners, and groups looking for fast rounds.
