Jusr Your Basic Little Anhyser ACE Run Course!
Pros: I had a great time playing this course early one lovely July morning. If you can throw a 225 foot hyser with any kind of accuracy, you should be able to shoot at least a negative 5 here. The disc golf course at Marion Park plays through the picnic area of the park. The other half of the park contains an elementary school and ballfields. The area in which the baskets are is flat with scattered mature trees, two picnic shelters and an octagon shaped building used for ??? concessions??? I don't really know? I doubt if it's a pro shop!
The course has concrete teepads. The baskets are DGA models with the red numbers on top. There are signs at 7 of the holes with the hole numbers but no distances listed. # 2 and # 7 signs are missing. The course starts at the corner of the park nearest the hospital, plays to the other end and back. It's a nice quick 20 minute round. I thought it had very simple lines. You don't to throw a anhyser here although rollers helped on 3 & 4. Very family/beginner friendly.
Cons: With all the holes between 173' and 280' and flat with no underbrush to contend with, I would guess these qualifies as a Pitch & Putt. It's simple! It's fun! Bring a mid range and your putter. Go for those ACES.
Other Thoughts: For being one of these small town REC or Pitch and Putts, I really enjoyed it. It was fun playing without the pressure of looking for discs in the brush. Another great course to teach someone to play on. Nice course to work on your forehand or backhand roller. Great course for the local elementary and teen population to learn to play on. Graduate from this course and then go to play Baraboo. It's the next step up.

Pros: As others have said, the course is in a nice, multi-use park, with facilities available. The course makes good use of the mature trees and allows you to use different shot shapes. A good place to bring small kids who might play a couple of holes and then want to do something else.
Cons: Flat as a pancake. Not much variety in hole lengths.
Other Thoughts: They just poured concrete tee pads (literally ... the forms were still on), which should make for more consistent footing. Since the holes are short, the tees are likely the only place you would need much of a run-up.
