Best tee signing I've ever seen!
Pros: -Amazing signage! This course has the best sing I have ever seen. All signs include yardage, par (adult/child) and an extremely detailed map of the hole. There is also a course map just off of hole one in the parking lot with score cards available.
-Fast playing. This course has a mix of short and mid range holes. Playing in a small group it is easy to play a round in under an hour for experienced players.
-Yellow ringed DISCCatcher baskets make it easy to find baskets in the wooded holes your first time through.
-Fun for all ages. This course could easily be played by kids and adults alike.
-Great practice course. A great mix of uphill, downhill and flat holes with a reasonably equal number of left, right and straight holes.
-Textured concrete tee pads. Makes play easy in wet conditions.
Cons: -Tee pads at this course are concrete however some are too small for a longer x-step approach.
-Some holes in this course are right next to each other so it would be possible for a stray or deflected disc to land in another fairway.
-No garbage cans, benches or restrooms.
-Hole 1 is thrown over the parking lot entrance and a ditch which could cause problems in wet conditions. Playing the other 17 holes with soaking wet shoes is not fun.
-No alcohol or tobacco. This course is at a junior high school so if the limitations are an issue for you take that into account.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course is worth a try. Nothing in this course is extremely challenging so it can be a fun course to play casually or competitively. I have played this course quite a few times and still find it to be enjoyable.
Great play if in the area
Pros: *Great elevation changes. Uphills, downhills.
*A lot of finesse shots and gaps
*Balanced mix of lefts, rights, center shots
Cons: *First hole is kind of a joke, it gets much better after that.
*Pretty windy area
*The first few holes are a bit short (bring your midrange!) but most can be done with your driver.
*A few of the signs are misleading as to which direction to throw (left or right)
*Trails could be packed down a little more
Other Thoughts: We drove from Rochester, MN, to come play. Worth the drive to check it out in my opinion. We don't have any elevation changes around here. Overall a great course. They do need a restroom there though. Also be sure to figure out where the basket is before you throw as the signs are a bit misleading! This course would be frustrating for beginners as they'd be digging in the Out of Bounds all day but anyone mid-skilled/expert should be fine.Overall a nice course that I'll be playing at whenever I'm in the area.

The NEW setup
Pros: This course, even though no signage yet, is easy to follow. Most holes are short to medium in length, making it a course playable by any experience level player. There are many varied shots required, with little danger, allowing players to feel free to try/practice new shots. Most holes are flat, but basket placement, still keeps a bit of a feel of challenge. A good usage of available terrain and elevation changes. There are several good ACE runs, again, for all experience level players. All holes have nice concrete tee boxes.
Cons: Since it is located on school grounds, it has restrictions, not really affecting the actual game or playability but the overall experience for certain players. No alcohol or tobacco is allowed. Hours of availability are restricted during the school year. After 5pm during the week, making it hard to get a round in during the fall/winter season due to darkness.
Other Thoughts: Once the signage is in place, I believe, this could be a solid 3 rated course, if the time, alcohol and tobacco restrictions are not factors for you. Check it out, it's worth the time.
