Pros: The course is set up along skiing and sledding hills. The elevation therefore is your main challenge here. There are some trees throughout as well to add a bit more challenge. They tuck quite a few baskets into the trees along the edges of the slopes which is nice. They have tee signs at most holes that have a basic hole layout, hole # and distances. The baskets are Mach 3's with the number plate atop each. these are a little beat up but still caught pretty well. There's a port o potty by the first tee, a large course map and ample parking. The first hole starts with a fun downhill bomb, meanders around, up and down the property and ends right back at the lot which is really nice. According to the course map on the shed there is supposed to be six new holes added this year after hole 8. We didn't check to see because we had to get to Lambeau on time but that would be a nice new addition if or when these are added.
Cons: Many of the tee signs are missing making it hard to navigate for first timers. The tee areas are just natural which is understandable for a ski hill course, however they are very worn down, muddy and get very slippery in spots. there is also many spots of standing water at the bottom of the hill. Nothing they can do about this though. Not too much variety of distances here. It really feels like 3 different types of shots. Up, down and across hill shots. All the distances feel the same which makes the course feel very repetitive.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty fun course but really nothing all that special or anything to go way out of your way to play. I haven't played everything near Green Bay yet but if this is one of the better courses around here it doesn't bode to well for the other courses. It's still fun, just nothing too great.

Pros: Very hilly and several different course types
Lots of different holes; straight, left, right, flat, uphill, and downhill
Cons: Can be slightly muddy
Some thick brush
Other Thoughts: One of my favorites in the green bay area! I love the fact that there is a ski hill in which you can just wind up and throw across for at least 400ft even if can normally only throw 200ft, and then you can drive to the bottom to pick up the discs.

Pros: - Good elevation change
- Variety of different shots
- Decent upkeep
Cons: - Very up and down, which is a work out (I enjoyed it, but others complained)
- Sketchy tees
- Sorta hard to know where to go on some holes.
Other Thoughts: - Decent beginner course near GB. Nothing too special here, but fun nonetheless. Would definitely play again if up here and need to get a quick round in.
- Would be nice to see actual tees and better signage

Pros: Everything about this park and course is a pro! The hilly landscape makes it a fun, yet challenging course. Lots of fun!
Cons: There is nothing wrong with this course.
Other Thoughts: Just a great course! I love it! Great people there and a great environment! I'd recommend it to anyone of any skill level. It's a great park and it's in a great city, I love Green Bay, WI and I love Triangle Park. If you live near this park or are even by it, I'd recommend going to play a little frolf!

I am out of clever titles!
Pros: 1) Elevation change is the key to the challenge and the fun factor here. You play up and down and across a whole lot of slopes. The uphills are challenging because of the steepness of those holes. You need to release the disc differently on these holes. The downhills are challenging because you never know I you are going to get an updraft that will pick up and carry your disc much further than intended. The sideslopes can be tricky because it is so easy to get a roll-a-way on these hills. All in all this was an excellent course for elevation change.
2) Mach baskets with number plates are some of my favorite baskets. They have seen a lot of play, and I would guess punk vandalism. Still decent baskets, but not perfectly new by any means.
3) It looks like they retrofitted the old DGA signs with their own maps and tee signs. The signs have Hole #, Par, Distance and a map of the hole.
4) This course had a few garbage cans scattered to help prevent litter from becoming a problem.
5) Practice basket is set off to the other side of the parking lot from the course. It is tucked underneath some old trees and in its own little area which is actually kind of nice.
6) Beginner friendly because of the shorter distance of all the holes, see also cons. It also would be tough to lose a disc out here, so that won't discourage the one disc wonders from playing here.
7) Average amount of foliage density variety. There are a couple of tighter holes, while most are fairly open with some key trees or obstacles. The rest are fairly open, but when elevation comes into play, it is hardly noticeable, you need to control every shot out here or suffer the consequences from something.
1) Erosion and compaction are quite obviously an issue on this course. It is to be expected on a skihill type layout . . .grass just doesn't stand up to heavy traffic on severe slopes. And getting new grass to grow in is difficult because you cannot keep nutrients and moisture on these areas, it all just runs off.
2) Overall the holes are very short, almost everything should be reachable in 1 shot even the longer downhill holes.
3) The distance variation is not very good here with almost all holes in the 200' range and the elevation and slopes equalizing the longer holes with the shorter holes making everything play similar.
4) Tees are bad and would be even worse after a rain for sure. They are worn down and a deep rut has formed. This rut will eventually collect water and be slick, and then the compaction will get worse. It is never-ending if they are not maintained.
5) Many tee signs are missing, just look for the rutted out tee area and throw from there. Every hole is reachable so it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
Other Thoughts: This is a one trick pony . . . elevation is the key to this course. Learn how to throw on it and you will take a lot of good information to other courses. You have to think about the elevation on every shot, so you get a lot of good practice deciphering what the elevation change will do to your throws. Yet again, this course has a valid reason for being here if you can focus on the benefits of playing here.

A bit short
Pros: Varied terrain that takes some advantage of the sledding hill.
Cons: A bit short, and tees are not landscaped and in some cases not marked at all. No advantage taken of the bounding wooded areas.
Other Thoughts: Somewhat interesting course given the terrain, but nothing to write home about.

Short but tons of fun
Pros: The course plays through a hilly ski and sledding area with lots of great elevation changes. Nearly all the holes play up or down some kind of elevation change, and many pins are on slopes leading to some really bad roll aways if you miss your putt or approach the wrong way. There is a really nice variety of hole shapes for such a short course, though every hole is reachable with a putter, I found myself pulling out all the different putters in my bag, and trying to hit some different lines. There are lots of fun ace runs for more experienced players here, adding to the fun factor for a casual round.
There are basic tee signs that have distance and hole layout, and the flow of the course is extremely easy to follow so you won't have any problems navigating here. There are dual tees that add a little distance, and make for just a little more difficulty.
Cons: The entire course is a putter or superclass course, with nearly all the shorts under 200' and the longs mostly under 250', so that takes away from the variety and challenge significantly. The long tees don't change the shots at all on most holes, they just add a little distance without adding to the variety of the course.
Many of the tees are so spread out by erosion that the long and short tees have joined into one giant dirt patch with no indication of where to throw for either tee, and many are rutted and not level with slippery sand as a surface. Many of the hills on the course are suffering from heavy traffic and erosion as well. The course was extremely crowded when I played, and a lot of the holes overlap so watch your head on a nice day, close fairways and oblivious players make for a bad combination.
The baskets are old and prone to spit outs, and many are bent due to age and vandalism, making them catch even worse. There are some nice areas of woods, but unfortunately they don't come into play at all.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course, but not one that will make you a better player or really work on much of your game. If you're looking for a challenge, look elsewhere, but if you want to run some aces and play some fun elevation shots this course is perfect. Beginners will love the short distance and lack of real trouble, and find enough variety to keep it interesting. More experienced players can work on their approach game, but will find the course quite simple and crowded.

Pros: Very open, so you can blast drives, very beginer friendly with the distance required for eahc hole. Experts can concentrate on accuracy and go for 2's in all the holes. The wooded parts arn't too dense, so you can find ur discs when u lose them. Decent variety of hole types, most are pretty strait though.
Cons: Pros will find this course not very challenging because it's very open. There are some tall grassy areas you have to worry about losing a disc in though. The tees are all sand/dirt and its easy to mess up your footing on them. There is alot of vandalism and garbage thrown around.
Other Thoughts: If your experts looking for a challenge I would advise a differnt course, but this course is a good place to hang out with friends of any skill level and have a good time. You don't have to worry about losing a disc execpt for a few tall grassy holes, but they won't give u more than 5-10 mins of looking. Very fun distance throw spot, and you can have the car driver pick you up at the bottom of the hill instead of having to walk all teh way back up.

Get Ready For A Workout
Pros: Above average variety of holes. Elevation freaks will definitely get their fix at this course. Number 18 is fun as a potential game-breaker during competitions (large hill which any drive has a fair likelihood of rolling down). Good course for practicing elevation changes and windy shots. Large parking lot and compelling ski hill location. Mostly open holes are forgiving for beginners. Most holes have signs with distance measurements. Two sets of tees.
Cons: Constant uphill, downhill hiking will become tiring. Lack of shade means you're in the sun for the majority of the round. Dirt/sand tee boxes are poorly defined and offer very poor footing. Course attracts more than its share of careless golfers and vandals compared to other courses in a 30-mile radius. Rough is thick and can eat discs if you don't watch shots carefully.
Other Thoughts: Permanent tee pads and a few more mature trees would put this course on-par with some of Appleton's offerings. Watch for discs flying in from parallel fairways!
