Pros: -Open Holes
-Wooded Holes
-Variations in Distance
-Variations in Elevation
-Concrete tee pads

This course is one of my favorites in the area. I love to be able to go to a course, and get everything thrown at me, from open, to wooded, to water hazards.

Even though the day I played this course, there were 30+ mph gusts of wind, I really liked it. The first few holes are all in the open, making great use of elevation and what obstacles are out there. After the first few holes are a bunch of wooded ones, where the course really becomes more about accuracy rather than distance. Also very good use of elevation in the wooded areas. For the back few holes the course takes a nice loop and leads you back to the last few open holes and right back to the parking lot.
Cons: -Crossing fairways/walkways
-Signage could be better

Those are the only things I found could be changed on this course. There are a few holes where you have to walk through other fairways to get to a hole, or fairways play dangerously close to one another. Keep your eyes peeled for discs.

Pros: Nice layout, good mix of elevation, open to wooded, short and tight to Air-it-out long.
Cons: Grass can get long, not always really well maintained. Lots of litter, lots of broken glass on some holes. THe apartments behind the course cause a lot of little disc theives running around, myself and 2 friends have had discs stolen on different trips. Starting to erode badly in some spots.
Other Thoughts: nice course overall. should be played if you are in the metro area.

Pros: Big course with a ton of variety. Some long, some short, some flat, some with nice elevation change. There are a lot of birdie opportunities early, but the last 6 holes offer some real challenges, particularly 16 and 18. A close match will be decided on those two holes.
Cons: Sadly, litter is a big problem here, particularly broken glass. There's a large apartment complex adjacent which brings a lot of its kids to the course, many of whom aren't there for disc golf. Erosion is a problem. There was an example of a disc golfer who broke his leg due to the dropoff at the end of the tee pad. Like Acorn in Roseville, this is a course which is truly excellent, but whose quality is eroding with the dirt.
Other Thoughts: I love playing this course. For all the cons I listed, Oakwood is definitely still worth playing.

Pros: Fantastic course. Well maintained holes and tee boxes make playing this course a treat. lots of fun and long course that let you break out the big drives. Half of the course is in open fields, the other is deeply wooded. The city takes very good care of the course
Cons: Could stand to be updated with better signs and more trash cans. When little league is playing, there is a significant risk of hitting spectators. Not really the courses fault, but its out of the way.
Other Thoughts: Worth making the trip to play it at least once.

Pros: Concrete Tees, Good Fairway Condition, 18 Holes, Varied landcape from long and open to short and narrow holes. Easy to Navigate. Parking by first tee.
Cons: Not a con for me, but course may be very intimaditing for a begginer, long drives and accuracy are needed on many holes. Trash Cans at only some holes, alot of litter at holes that dont have trash cans. Some of the hole signs are missing or vandalized so you cant read distance or par. Long grass in the some of the fairways can make looking for a disc difficult.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very good fun course, alot of challenges and landsape changes. If you have a few hours, are up for a challenge or just want to air out some long drives this is a great course for you

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: This course provides a chance to throw a variety of discs in your bag along with testing your skills in throwing a variety of shots.

Some holes allow the big arms a chance to air it out, while other holes will test your ability to throw precision shots.
Cons: There was a fair amount of vandalism on this course. Next hole signs were not present as a result of vandalism.
Other Thoughts: Tee markers and next hole directions would be an improvement.

Pros: Dual tees on most holes, with concrete pads at long tees.

Nice mixture of distance. Some long holes where you can just reach back and throw, as well as some shorter holes to test your accuracy.

Good mix of open and wooded holes. Very tight fairways in the woods which will challenge you (which could also be a con)
Cons: Lots of brush in the woods. If you throw off the fairway, you might have to look for a while to find your disc.

Not enough trash cans at the course, some litter, especially in the woods.

Lack of signs on the back 9.
Other Thoughts: I used most of the discs in my bag when I played this course.
The course has been kept up pretty well by the city. Very nice city course.

Picnic shelter and ball field on park grounds as well.

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.
