An all around course.
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Concrete tee pads, sign posts, well maintained.
Cons: Easy to lose a disc on some holes (water). One hole very close to a busy street.
Other Thoughts: This was the first course I ever played and it is still my favorite. It has just about every kind of hole you can think of with the eception of a hanging or elevated basket. You get everything from par threes to a legitimate par five, water hazards, through the woods shots and the chance to hit small children on a swing set. Just an all around beautiful course.

Pros: Well-maintained baskets. Great layout. beautiful setting.
Cons: Need concrete tee pads on all holes. Signage would be helpful to direct new players from hole to hole. The Highland Park geese have left a lot of "gifts" throughout the course- watch your step.
Other Thoughts: I should start by saying that I am a disc golf beginner. I always thought this game was played by middle-aged, overweight men who needed an excuse to get out of the house but were incapable of playing any real sports. Maybe it's just because I now fit most of those descriptions, but whatever the case, I love this game (I probably owe the NBA some money for that one).
The Higland Park Couse is great. It was easy enough that I didn't get overly frustrated as a beginner... but it seems to offer challenges for long-time players.
The course is beautiful. It truly does make use of most of the park's features (water and elevation changes). Holes 2 & 4 offer an opportunity for the brave to play over the water and also offer alternate tees for the less brave. My only complaint is that the course could be marked a little better. The course crosses the road and the creek on a couple of occasions, and if you're not familiar with the layout, you'll spend some time trying to figure out where some of the tees are located.
Anyway, grab a couple of discs and an old pair of shoes (it can get kind of soggy and the goose poop is really pretty bad) and check-out Highland Park. It's a lot of fun, and it's free!

Pros: Nice baskets (spider-webs/chainstars I believe) fairly easy to navigate throughout the course with the course maps. Most of the shots will keep you accurate while a few holes will let you "open up"
Cons: Gets muddy, if you tend to not do well around water a few holes might make you rethink what you want to throw. Puddles were in quite a few of the paths/approaches (nothing like throwing a great drive and hoping on the skip only to find it SPLASH in a puddle in front of the basket)
Other Thoughts: They have a temp course set up on the north end of the park for the tournament, both courses were AWESOME! and quite a few birdie opportunities. The creek has no problems swallowing your discs and with it being quite murky, hard to see. I lost 3 discs that day, 2 putters and a brand new eagle. It is a very large park with baseball diamonds and a nature building which was closed when I was there. Over-all I would enjoy playing this course again!!!!
