Pros: Big arms will like the longer holes on this one. There are some technical, tight holes, but those are broken up by cattails and swampland.

There are some minor elevation changes here. It's just enough to get you used to the fact that not everywhere is flat like central IL.

There are a few baskets on the sides of hills. Good luck putting! That's a nice challenge I'm not accustomed to - it cost me a stroke each time.

Should you get hungry or need an emergency bottle of Off!, there are a lot of nearby options.

The layout is well thought out to the land. These holes are well planned, mixed, varietied, and kept up.

Cons: Bring your junk discs here. When it's summer and everything's grown, you can lose a disc rather easily.

Some blind shots will question your rationale.

First timers will, without a doubt, have a tough time figuring this place out. At one point, you will tee off from the backend of a grammar school's playlot.

Yeah, that's not confusing.....

Peoples' backyards back into this course. Bad, bad news, man...
Other Thoughts: Either I or my discing party has gotten into a fight here each time we've played. It's mainly due to cocky MF's who don't want others to play thru.

This place can get crowded, so beware. There are some ritzy neighborhoods nearby, and there are some less than ritzy neighborhoods nearby.

If this course was placed in a less dense area (i.e. you're not poking around someone's fenced in backyard for a wayward disc), it'd gain at least a full star.
