Pros: - Brings a new type of course to the area
- Kind of hidden for now
- Low Traffic
- a good amount of holes are surrounded by trees so wind won't play as much as a factor
- what everyone else said so far
- new course = clean course with no one ruining the baskets writing their aces on them. Hope we can keep it that way.
-No water hazards except #15, but you'd have to over shoot the green and it's just a shallow creek.
Cons: - Needs teepads
- Although it's not that hard, it would be nice to have a marker to where the next tee pad is near/on basket (thinking about bring tape and doing what I've seen at wheeler and kress creek
- Still needs to remove some trees/ brush to make it less frustrating, but still difficult
- Thorns everywhere
- Pine trees eat disc (ended up getting a good cut on my arm climbing a tree on hole 15 for a disc stuck at the top)
- Ground is pretty uneven on paths to the next hole.
- No garbage cans, plenty of places to put them. I'm sure they'll come in time.
- as of right now it's difficult to figure out exactly where to tee off from as in which side of the post.
- Part of a dog park, owners won't pick up after their dogs so watch where you step.
Other Thoughts: Don't bring novice players to this yet. My friends were living in the thorns.
Keep a golf ball or slingshot in your bag in case a disc gets stuck in a pine tree.
Part of a park with soccer/baseball fields so you can do some field throws before or after in case you want to.
Can't wait to see what it becomes.

Pros: -good location, from what i understand it is on an old tree farm
- lots of long and technical shots
-this course is a most welcome change from the mostly open courses in the area
-heavily wooded but unlike the other heavily wooded courses around it is still a long 18
-even in its rough early stages it was a blast to play
-a great challenge for better players
-still has a few good bomber holes as long as you can bomb accurately
-the first few holes are easy compared to the rest of the course(still harder then a lot of the courses around) that make for good warm up holes.
-even without signs navigation was not that bad with only a few exceptions
Cons: -this course still needs a lot of work
-very rough pads
-some very rough holes that are heavily wooded with low hanging branches( i thought it made for a good challenge but started to get a little frustrated)
-watch where you step lots of small tree stumps that you can stub your toes on
-the rough is still very rough with lots of thrones and i can see it getting much worse during the summer.
-it is also a dog park and did have a dog try to run off wit ha friends disc but he got it back undamaged
-there are one or 2 holes that are hard to spot from the tee but once signs get put in the few problems we had finding tees will be easily fixed
-they still need to mark the tees and baskets as of now there are orange stakes next to tee/ baskets that say what holes are what
Other Thoughts: - once this course gets a little foot traffic through it it will start to clear up a bit
- still needs to be cleared out a bit but i hope they don't clear it out to much
-this course has the potential to be the best course in the area not counting the courses down by joliet but this could easily be on par with those courses. even if they only put in pads i would bump my rating of this course up and if it had quite a bit more work done to it i would bump up the raiting quite a bit
