Pros:
- Nice variety of shots
- Good mix of distance
- Varied terrain
- Low non-disc traffic
- Signs
- Cement Tees
- Wood chips around baskets
Cons:
- Garbage everywhere
- Vandalism
- Equipment is aging
Other Thoughts: This is an awesome 18 hole course. There is a good mix of open, lightly wooded, and densely wooded holes. There is even water in play on a few holes. There is a good range of distances too, hole 18 is over 600 feet. One feature that looked newer was the wood chips. There was a ton of mulch spread around, which really caught the discs very nicely. There were a lot of other folks playing but the course design was good enough that there was no back-ups.

You can easily tell this is an old course though. There is garbage everywhere and the baskets are worn out. Some chains are broken and one was even cut off and is much shorter than the rest. Nevertheless still an awesome course to play.

Pros: This course a very nice 18 hole course with short tees for those who cannot do the long drive.
Cons: Some holes have litter around the tees and some of the paths are very muddy and slick.
Other Thoughts: First time playing this course and I was very VERY impressed by the lay out and the up-keep of the park.

Pros: There is a lot of good things to say about this course. To start off with, you get a large amount of variety. The first hole is a short down hill shot with not too many obstacles, followed by a long uphill hole, and then a long downhill hole. Most of the course was set up this way, there was probably only 2 or three holes that didn't have a large amount of elevation change.
Around the 6th hole, you enter some woods that change from lightly wooded to heavily wooded. There's a large variety of shots in these woods as well, and all the fairways are relatively tight. Some of the holes are very short but are made hard because of the trees. This being said, there is also a hole that is over 400 feet that is in the woods.
All in all, this is a very good course for players that need more of a challenge, it challenges most aspects of the game.
Cons: It is a little hard to find your way around the first time you play here. There are some signs, but in other spots there aren't. Make sure you know where all the baskets are the first time you play, it is quite challenging to shoot at them when you don't know where they are.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the Twin Cities, you should make sure you play this course.

Pros: Its a great mix of woods and open area with some hilly challenges.
Cons: A lot of difficult par 2's that could be 3's due to the massive amount of wooded cover and random trees in the middle of some tight fairways back through the woods.
