Pros: -High Fun Factor - These tighter lines with shorter hole distances really is a lot of fun, resulting in many scenarios where you hold your breathe
-Good work on the technical game out here. These aren't all just straight throws, you will have to throw discs around trees.
-Beautiful Park - This is in a community park and it is a very nice walk through the park while throwing disc. Love it.
-Very clean - although there are no garbages on the course, this course was spotless. I did notice the park guy with his son or grandson following me with a garbage bag. I do think they place a high priority on keeping this park clean and have a lot of pride with the course.
-Flat out I had a lot of fun on this course.
Cons: -There are only 2 holes that introduce some distance to the course, and even those holes aren't super long.
-No garbages out on the course - although it was not dirty, this could pose a problem when the park maintenance guy slacks off.
-Natural pads - Although this doesn't bother me, in fact I kind of like it, I do see this as a lower standard than concrete pads.
-Most holes are short and move left, getting slightly repetitive at points
-Its only 9 holes
-Almost certain some of the distances are off on a few holes. Think maybe the course has changed recently.
Other Thoughts: I really did enjoy my time playing this 9-hole course. I do not typically like 9-holes, but was up in the area for work training and this was rated the best course in my area. I give this course a true rating of 3.25. Since the general course rating is above the 3.5 option I have and I believe the rating is below that I decided to give the course the 3 rating instead of the 3.5 option I have. I seen in another review a person put it is a challenging course, I would have to somewhat disagree. I think it is a fairly easy, short, fun factor course that will not satisfy any person interested mainly in "championship" courses. I enjoy short technical throws and that is why I feel this course is a 3.25. This course could easily post a rating of 2 from someone who does not like this type of throw. All said and done, if you are traveling up to Brainerd for something, swing through and give this course a shot, it is definitely worth it. However, I would not recommend going way out of your way to hit this course up since it is out in the middle of nowhere and is only 9 holes. While out there, I did notice some potential other areas that may have been getting cleared out to add holes. If this course goes to 18-holes I would definitely recommend going out of your way to hit it up if you like short, technical holes.

Pros: New baskets, professional signage, two sets of tees, challenging technical lines through the woods, VERY minimal traffic sets this course apart.
Cons: The ticks were out of control last summer, prickly thorns around every corner if you get off the fairways. Holes are a tad bit short, teepads are ok but still a bit rough.
Other Thoughts: Add in concrete teepads, get rid of the ticks and thorns and you have a pretty fun course. There is more than enough room to add in another 18 holes, look for this course to be something great eventually. Take garlic supplements and bring deet, can't stress enough.
