Pros: There are 9 baskets set up in a very small park in a very small town. The tee signs are at every hole but they only contain the hole #. They used to have the distances written on them but almost all of them are worn off. The flow is pretty easy to follow. There is a port o potty by the parking lot. I highly doubt that this course would ever be busy as it is in the middle of nowhere. They at least used the little bit of wooded area on the property, though it's not much.
Cons: The baskets, although new, are single chained which isn't ideal. The distances are all pretty short. Also worth mentioning but the bugs can get brutal, though there's nothing they can do about this.
Other Thoughts: Just another 9 hole city park course. Nothing worth going out of your way to play but if you happen to be close its worth a quick spin. But Madison has many better courses not too far away.

Pros: In the small village of Arena, with it's population of slightly over 800, there is a disc golf course. And on this disc golf course, there are tee signs and baskets.
There was a brave and valiant attempt at designing a mix of open and wooded holes, holes that favor both left handed and right handed, as well as varying distances. However, the result was an all around 1.0 disc golf course.
I will say, I have no quips for the design. The designer did a pretty solid job of throwing 9-baskets down. But it's just not a good course. It's just so...meh.
Also note, if you do come here, make sure to wave to everyone because this seems like a very tight-knit community where everyone knows everyone. I'm sure my visit will be the talk of the town for weeks to come.
Cons: Oh man. Where to begin on this one.
The course equipment was just tees (a line of bricks), a tee sign (with hole number and distance in yards. Yes, you read that right, yards), and single-chained baskets (which I thought could belong in a history museum. Who does this anymore?? This is 2015!).
#3. What the hell. Even though this hole is like 120 feet, you're literally throwing directly into shrubbery on the tee shot. It may be better in winter.
No real distance shots. I played the whole round with just a putter and had birdie chances on every hole. Definitely boasts your self-esteem if you can work with the single-chained baskets.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this is your typical 1.0 course. It exists, you can play it, but it doesn't leave a lasting impression.

Pros: - Remote park so I don't think there are many issues with crowded playing.
- Course is dedicated with no "patron area" obstacles to worry about.
Cons: - Tee areas are pretty primitive as far as the set up is concerned. (No mapping, Bricks used to mark the front line of the grass tee box, Numbers on a post to mark holes.)
- Baskets are single chain baskets. (Watch your speed on your putt!)
- Most holes are very short (200' or so)
Other Thoughts: Decent course if your just a beginner. Definitely not a "road trip" worthy course. Because of short holes you could probably easily par-in with a putter.

Pros: Short course that is easy for beginners.
Cons: The holes are either wide out in the open with no trees or straight through very thick woods. In the woods theres no strategy its just whoever gets luckiest on his/hers throw. The holes are also unreasonably short.
