Maybe the park board member is a disc golfer

He did work with a very experienced designer on another park.

I've played 200+ courses, a handful of which should not exist due to extremely bad design.

Just sayin

Just heard that they offered my teaching position to someone else. That has me greatly bummed and I am not going to waste your internet time explaining why I was so qualified for this position. So, honestly I do not care as much about Zimmerman because next in line for consideration are teaching positions in Maple Grove and Champlin, which are closer to where I live anyway.

Gotta give you props on at least spelling it right. Many regular players when they take pictures and post them on Facebook, still to this day post them as Hanson Park lol. Curious what this course will be as I still have not made my way up 169 to play milaca and have heard rave reviews.

I do not know what kind of raving you have heard, but Milaca is not worth a trip alone. Unless they have made massive changes in the last year, it is simply a 9 hole course with dual pads to pass it off as 18. The first few holes are decent, considering the land they have, but the two water holes that cross the river are almost unplayable. The first time over you need to cross the river and hope the wall of trees do not swat you back. The basket is 30 feet from the river, so the chances of hitting trees are quick high. Coming back over the river you have to throw over a dam if you want any chance of getting a birdie. There are often people sitting or fishing on the dam, making it a very risky shot that you might hit someone. There is a long hole near the end which you have to throw over a parking lot. Generally there are no cars in this dirt lot, but it only takes one car to make you nervous. The last hole is a marquee-level difficult hole, challenging you, making you forget about the other holes.

Springvale in Cambridge is a far better alternative to Milaca. 12 holes that will only get better as it gets beaten down. I especially like Hole 1 and the ravine you have to throw over.

Any more news on this? I'm dying to try out a new course.

This little 9 hole course near me had two baskets stolen. #7 and #9. It's not a great course but it's close and fun to rip around with mids and putters. Dang thieves should have discs thrown at them by Simon Lizotte.

I haven't played there yet this year. That sucks that someone is stealing baskets from a church course. Idiots.
