Short but Challenging and Fun.
Pros: Woodland Park is a very pretty setting, with water and a playground, as well as picnic areas and a ball field. The disc golf course wraps around the property, putting a hole in every nook and cranny they can.
- There is plenty of elevation changes, both from the tees and up to the greens.
- Multiple shots play across or near the water.
- If you like ace runs, this is a course for you!
Other Thoughts: - I found no course map, and as such was left wondering around a few times. A few signs, which would have helped I imagine, have been busted.
- Being such a nice park there is plenty of pedestrian traffic to negotiate. Most seemed content to stay in the pavilions, but on a weekend it could get interesting.
Woodland is a fairly short course, yet still plenty challenging and extremely fun.

Something for Everyone
Pros: This course has made great use of the land available, and includes excellent elevation changes and several holes with some very tempting water hazards. Three tees on every hole also allow the course to be meet the needs of any level of disc golfer from newbie to pro. The combination of natural terrain and man-made obstacles (pavilions, baseball fields, etc.) really require you to bust out almost every shot in the bag. All in all, very challenging and a great course overall.
Cons: A little confusing to navigate for first time visitors, even with signs marking the way.

A really fun course
Pros: There are some really nice rolling hills that are used very wisely. The course has a wide variety of shots, with a lot of elevation changes and OB water on several holes. There are also many spots of OB from park roads & parking lots. Most hole are semi open, but changes in elevation are what make the layout so challenging. There are 3 sets of tees with some very unique shots from each that help this course set up very well for all skill levels. It can be a very difficult course from the blue tees.
Cons: Find a course map. Without one, you have no chance of finding all 18 holes. It has one of the strangest layouts I've ever come across. For example, hole 1 is physically located on the back nine. You have to play one, then walk over a bridge to the front nine. Once you are on the front, holes 5,6 & 7 are so far apart that without a map (or a guide) you have almost no chance of finding them.
Other Thoughts: Located not far away from the World's largest ketchup bottle, the 70 ft. water tower at the old Brooks Catsup Plant in Collinsville.
