Pros: This course enjoys a lot of the same benefits as its neighbor, the Grey course.
The park is huge and absolutely beautiful! This is a great place to go if you want to just get away from it all and enjoy disc golf with your friends.
The Red course is very different from its Grey counterpart.
*It's definitely more beginner accessible than Grey
*There's a fun downhill drive that will make you want to empty your bag
*Decent shot-shaping, without intense difficulty makes the course accessible and good to practice on
*Pretty good maintenance as far as tee-pads and garbage cans go.
Cons: There is an overall lack of exciting disc golf at this little course...
*Laughably short distances on four or five of the holes
*A few of the holes don't have any elevation changes or trees... just baskets in a field
*No tee-signs, which stinks because there are several blind holes
*Course doesn't really make use of the woods.
Other Thoughts: The obvious idea here is to play this course as a warmup for the Grey course, or to bring a beginner. For these roles this course is wonderful!
If for some reason you have to choose between the two, then play the Grey

Pros: The course has been redesigned. One basket location with long and short tees. Short tees are concrete and long are wood chips, soon to be concrete. Great design by Terry miller the DG Guy! Now Fox River Park in Kenosha county Wi. has a fantastic 27 Basket facility!
Other Thoughts: Rating is for old course

Pros: The course plays in the area of the old Red Fox course and along the adjacent sled hill. There are two fun downhill shots, including one the uses the elevation of the sled hill with plenty of room to air out some drives. Two shots have nice uphill tee shots for a little more challenge.
There are a couple shots that make you throw specific lines, and enough trees on a few of the holes that you can't just throw a simple hyzer. The short tees have nice concrete pads, the long tees offer some more interesting and more challenging looks along with a good amount more distance and have woodchip tees.
Cons: A lot of the holes are very short and straightforward, not offering much of an obstacle to throwing whatever line is easiest for you. The longs are better, but still play fairly open. There really isn't much punishment for errant shots, you can fairly easily recover for par anywhere on the course. The long tees are terrible, deep fluffy piles of woodchips just don't provide good footing. I would rather see natural tees than the current setup.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course much more approachable than the Grey Fox course onsite, it's a great course for trying out the sport without too much frustration. More experienced players can use the shorts for some ace runs or a nice quick warmup, and the long tees provide a few fun shots. This course complements the longer 18 holer very well, I like seeing complexes with options for different levels of players.
