Pros: The course is a great challenge from both Pro and Am tees (I once in a tournament shot E from the Ams and followed with a -10 from the Pros because I'd never played the Ams). The first five holes are wooded and technical, then 7-14 weave in and out of the woods and offer great technical challenge and a variety of shots (as well as some mild elevation changes to further confuse disc choice). The course once had awful rubber tee pads that have now mostly been replaced with concrete during a recent redesign.
Cons: The flaws are near the end.The last 4 holes are simply long and boring without much in the way of obstacles. Even if you aren't a huge bomber, it is fairly easy to get par on most of them (the 15th is the exception, requiring two perfect 330 foot shots to park it for the par), but deuces are unlikely and the land could have been used better.

One of the Best Free Courses Around

Pros: - Holes are very challenging but not impossible.
- Mapping and signage is great
- Pretty much all the tees are in great shape
- Lot of diversity in the way the holes are layed out
Cons: - A couple of the competitive tees are missing from recent construction.
- Parking lot for tennis court too close to line of play for hole 10. It is a blind pin so u may want to have a spotter or check it out prior to teeing off so u can avoid parking a disk into the fender of a BMW.
Other Thoughts: I LOVE THIS COURSE and am quite familiar with it but word to the wise: It is very easy to lose a disk in the foliage so pay close attention to the flight path of your disk.

Better than expected

Pros: Many of the wholes are challenging, especially from the long tees. The next tees are almost always visible from the previous pin.
Cons: There is a massive campus overhaul going on and the course is down 2 holes and has the possibility of others being closed temporarily or changed permanently. I never did find where 18 was even supposed to be. Most of the pads are either skinny concrete or uneven rubber. 3 holes have a sign or a tree right next to the long tee in the way of a RHBH follow though.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, after looking at the pictures I wasn't expecting much, especially since I knew the campus was under construction. I did still have a good time. My games was very hit or miss so I don't know how much that skewed my perception.

Pros: Varied hole difficulties, signs for most holes, pro and amateur tee pads for most holes, creeps along Ice Age Trail which helps with the imagery throughout.
Cons: Missing several baskets/holes due to construction (which severally hurts its true rating).

Pros: This very challenging course has two sets of tees for most if not all holes. Tough blind shots and doglegs, with wooded shots and open areas abound in this beautiful layout.
Cons: While I played the campus was under construction making it unplayable for several holes. The rough can be kind of thick and you really need people with you to help spot discs. It is also very tough to navigate if you haven't played it before.
Another drawback are the tee pads. Though some are nice there are others that are curled up and wavy, or simply a puddle of water. I wound up using the ground next to the tee more often than the tee itself.
Other Thoughts: Fix the tee situation and as soon as construction is done and I would consider this one of the nicest courses I've played at. But due to the above issues its nothing more than an average course right now.

Pros: Very nice wooded holes and elevation changes.
A few open long drive shots towards end of course.
Markers show where next hole is located.
Grass stays mowed often.
Cons: Not a big fan of the rubber tee pads, but are better than gravel/dirt pads.
Other Thoughts: I would rank up to a 4 if the pads went to concrete.

 Fun 18 with a variety of shots

Pros: A fun 18 basket course. Lots of shorter shots in wooded area, but also a few longer open shots. Has two tee pads for each basket - one is shorter and easier and the other is typically more challenging. Most baskets have nice signs with distance and map.
Cons: Might be a good idea to go in groups of 2 or more to help spot discs thrown into trees and tall grass.
Other Thoughts: Overall a really fun course to play.

Pros: Alight I know not everyone wants a hole by hole break-down of the course...
Here's a quick down and dirty of the good followed by the hole descriptions.

This course starts out in the woods and the first 5 holes are more than likely my favorite multiple hole stretch. The first 5 are uphill, blind dogleg right, elevated dogleg left, dogleg right downhill, and then a narrow tree lined straight. You have everything in the first 5 holes. This course has a mix of concrete tees and rubber mat tees. Most of the rubber tees are still in good shape. And every hole except #7, #9, #12, and #14 has an amateur tee and a pro tee. The baskets with the exception of 2 are in very good shape.
Cons: There really isn't too much to complain about. The course itself is laid out nice. There is 2 things I'd complain about is:
1) People are very destructive. The course is on a college campus..... There isn't supposed to be drinking, smoking, or doing drugs. There is glass from beer bottles being smashed all over the tees. If you're reading this and have played here you know what I'm talking about. Spread the word and/or yell at these punks so this awesome course doesn't get shut down. Its super simple, if you're going to drink, bring a cooler and bring cans.... Then bring the evidence with you when you leave. As far as smoking/chewing/smoking other than Tabaco products.... Do it when there aren't 100 people looking at you on the open holes.
2) And this is just personal preference, #15-#17 it almost seems like they ran out of ideas for holes. They are just long open holes and after the first 14 were awesome it sucks to end your round walking through a soccer field and no trees or obstacles.
Other Thoughts: This course would be a 4.5-4.75 in my books if people would just be respectful and throw theyre garbage in the 25 garbage cans provided and didn't break glass on the tees.

Here's a break-down of the holes from the pro tees:
#1 uphill basket just to the left on hill crest.
#2 blind dogleg right with trees erratically then straightens out.
#3 elevated tree lined downhill basket just left
#4 blind dogleg right downhill (easy to go way past on approach shot).
#5 narrow tree lined pretty much straight.
#6 open straight.
#7 uphill trees everywhere.
#8 elevated dogleg left to straight.
#9 elevated downhill through heavy trees.
#10 HUGE dogleg left to tennis courts basket in gulley (style points if you hit the tennis player's vehicles).
#11 very narrow tree run basket sits at end after dogleg right.
#12 straight ends dogleg right.
#13 straight with HUGE evergreen blocking basket (either have to backdoor or hook left).
#14 uphill turns into a 90' dogleg left.
#15 Huge straight away through soccer field down lil' hill then up a hill. (if there is a soccer game going on just play from the close tees).
#16 straight over tennis court road basket by tree.
#17 up an embankment straight.
#18 straight into dogleg right uphill whole right side is trees.

 Home course

Pros: First and foremost this course is very fun to play. It offers a variety of short wooded holes with several ace opportunities and some open long distance throws where you can air it out. The designer did a good job mixing up left and right shots as well as elevation changes, but nothing overwhelming to new comers.
I like the fact that the practice basket has 10 small rubber circles at different distances surrounding the basket. Makes for a good game of H-O-R-S-E!

Baskets remain in ground year round in case you get that itch during winter months!
Cons: A couple tee pads are rubber and completely uneven. Course is not as challenging to a seasoned veteran.Broken glass everywhere.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course is a blast. Definately give it a shot if youre in the area visiting the tourist trap of the Dells!
