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: 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: 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.

Pros: i really do like this course it has a good variety of landscapes open holes to very crowded holes. the holes have all types of different shooting too from up hill to downhill hyzers to anhyzers. the course is pretty well kept by the city they lay down new wood chips every couple of months. also a very easy to find the next tees. the reason that i like it is beacuse its got it all, well to my standards.
Cons: not too many cons except sometimes the information posts at the tees are sometimes ripped out or missing because of kids taking them or damaging them but are usually replaced fairly quick. needs a good disc supplier near by.
