Wister Quarry Island DGC
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Close to home for me and park keeps it in good condition. A nice variety of shots and challenges for a beginner.
Cons: Could get harder to throw with more campers and park goers during the nicer times of the year. Hole 5 as stated earlier can be flooded if water level gets up very much. Some of the holes have very unlevel tees that have eroded a bit making footing difficult. Christmas time is bad time to play. Decorations and lights were strung across most of the holes and made it very difficult to play most of them.

Pros: This course is well marked with a course map at Tee #1 and markers with par info at every Tee.
Staff at the state park are great and are hoping to bring in a lot more players.
Discs are available for rent and purchase in the park admin building.
Cons: Hole #5 was poorly designed, it's placed in a low spot right next to the lake that floods easily and becomes unplayable. They could have easily avoided this and it should be moved. It remains flooded several months out of the year.
Other Thoughts: Great course for new and experienced players. The views of the lake and the ever changing forest are well worth the trip to this course.

Pros: The course is set upon an peninsula in the Wister Lake State Park. There is a nice course map at the start of the course, each hole has a decent sign with distance and a bit of a diagram.(You can see the basket on every teepad.(Kind of a con) The course does offer some distance change with a short 190' ace run to a 420' bomber. Each hole as a concrete toe board embedded in the ground to signify the end of the tee. Also, with the course being set on a hillside there is a bit of elevation in play too. Course flows well and can be played in timely matter(took me 25 minutes solo).
Cons: The course is fairly open has some trees in play but an errant shot is never punished and a recovery shot can be made with ease. The course itself plays around a Picnic area/ Hillside, i could see some interference with other park goers during the nicer times of the year. The baskets although hand-made caught rather well and were nicely designed(not considered much of a con). Tee pads were natural, with time they will erode.
Other Thoughts: This courses is a basic beginner course nothing special or challenging but its a place play and if i was in the area i would totally hit up the course. I traveled from Paris, TX just to get some extra courses in on my month long DG voyage back to Wisco.
