Pros: -Nicely groomed fairways.
-More challenging than the courses in town due to all the trees and thick, tall grass.
-Enjoyable for the nature hike itself.
Cons: -Rough is definitely getting tall and can make finding and retrieving discs a pain.
-Some baskets let discs fall through, saw it happen with my friend's putt.
-Lots of bugs; the spray kept the mosquitoes away but not the biting flies.
-Tee pads were natural with a small strip of concrete at the front; they were usually just fine but a couple were more difficult to use.
Other Thoughts: -A tree was down across the fairway of the first hole making it quite difficult to even walk through, let alone throw a disc.
-Without the provided map, we probably would have had a hard time finding some of the tees.
-New baskets, better tee pads, and trimmed up rough would make this an even more enjoyable course.

Pros: Nice course in the woods. They did well designing it in the space they had provided. Not a long walk between holes. Also a challenging couse due to the amount of trees and location of the pins. Score cards were available, and they showed how the course played out.
Cons: The skeeters were terrible. The grass was too long for my liking. Every hole was like the previous one in the fact that they are all narrow. The pars on the secondary pins did not corespond with the primary ones. A longer more challenging shot could be a 4 compared to a shorter par 5 on the same hole.
Other Thoughts: Bring the spray for the mosquitoes. If your in the area, give the course a chance. One of a kind hole number seven is a must see!

Mississippi River Park
Pros: Definitly a unigue course and well designed with its site. Going from hole to hole was easy and there were score card available to see the layout of the course. Dual tees are a plus, closer tees usually much easier. The signature number seven hole is a must see. The hole runs between two rows of pine trees but they are trimmed up at least 14 feet so the hole is not unreasonable.
Cons: The dual pins are nice but they the pars seem to change out of proporsion with the pacement of the tees. Some holes the shorter tee moves up 20-25 feet but the par drops by 2 strokes. THe course is tucked into the woods, making very narrow fairways if any at all. If one strays off the path trees and tall grass and shrubs will make for dificult shots. The baskets seem to be old and discs can fall out. Because of its placement in the woods, mosquitos are terrible, so bring spray.
Other Thoughts: The couse is like a disc course on a walking trail. But it has great character. To change the couse for the better while keeping this character, better baskets and mowing the path woult help.
