Quaint little course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is a quaint little "city park" kind of a course. Relatively short but a bit challenging at the same time. Water (a pond) comes into play on the first two holes, especially on windy days. The mando on the 3rd isn't a big deal. Nice to see that they changed the 4th tee to a place that actually provides a window. #6 is on the knob of a hill and an overthrow can send you rolling on down the other side of the hill, taking away an otherwise easy chip in birdie. For hole 7 you tee off from that same hill and shoot for a 'hidden' basket tucked behind some trees. Short enough however to be able to use your putter off the tee. #9 is really the only hole that presents a challenge. It has some length, and a narrow window between some large pine trees. .... All in all not a bad little course. Someone actually put some thought into designing this course. A very efficient use of small town park.
Cons: Poorly maintained dirt tee boxes. Some serious "ankle twisters". To the point that on a few (#'s 8 & 9 in particular) you find yourself teeing off outside the box for self preservation. ...... Goose 'droppings' are everywhere on the first four holes. .... Not super challenging.
Other Thoughts: This is a great "practice" kind of a course. Nobody is ever there so you usually have the place to yourself. I usually play 2-4 discs every hole just for the practice. ... It's also a great family kind of a course. Good for beginners and still 'interesting' for more experienced throwers. ********* UPDATE (5-20-15) The tee boxes here are TERRIBLE. DANGEROUS. SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET HURT SOON. These are the worst tee pads I've ever seen. I have to take a star away from the rating. And that's too bad, because it really isn't a bad course.

Beautiful 9 hole layout
Pros: Beautiful walk through the park, great hole layout and use of the space provided. An assortment of shots need to be in the bag to score well on this course. I threw backhands, forehands, thumbers and skippers. Putters, midranges and drivers off the tees. Slightly uphill/downhill shots make for exciting and challenging holes. Water hazards and hard to get at baskets. Overall, the diversity of shots make this course an everyday kind of course in my book.
Cons: It is a relatively short course, with the longest hole being 360ft slightly uphill. Just built last summer, could use some garbage cans and benches. Dirt tee boxes need regular maintenance, maybe baseball diamond dirt? No real complaints about playability.
Other Thoughts: Great course, great addition to the northwoods, great work. Even saw the possibility of pro/alternative tee boxes. Best of luck in the future!!
