Not a lot of detail on this one.

And what are the current Course Conditions? Good - with no details.
Looks like the MODs just deleted the review.
Basically it just said, "Just wanted to let everyone know this course is still open".

Under the Pros, Cons and Other Thoughts.

Thanks for cleaning this up MODs!!

Kiekhaefer (FDL)
Denoon (Muskego)
Valley View (New Berlin)
Spassland (Germantown)
Sussex Village Park
All 5 main MKE County Parks courses (Dretzka winter & summer/Brown Deer/Estabrook/Dineer/Root River)
Bird's Ruins (Marshall)
Yahara Hills (winter) Hiestand, Vallarta Ast, Capital Springs, Elver (Madison)
McDill Pond, Mead Park, Standing Rocks, Yulga, Big Eau Pleine (Stevens Point area)
Wilderness Campground (Montello)
Rowe Park (Onalaska)

This is no exhaustive list, and I would expect more to follow suit, unfortunately. Please follow state ordered social distancing requirements, and practice "better than you're used to" hygiene if you choose to play a course that's still open. I don't really care one way or the other if you follow the directives of the PDGA, but be smart, be courteous, and don't ruin things for everyone else if you do play. Please STRONGLY consider playing solo rounds only, or if you must, keep your group sizes small and keep your distances from each other.
More to add to the list since this last post, courtesy of Milwaukee Area Disc Golfers:
Silver, Gray & Red Fox (Silver Lake - uuggggghhhh these ones HURT)
Grand Geneva Resort (Lake Geneva - entire resort is closed)
Rock River (Watertown)
Lustig & Riverside Parks (Janesville)

Please don't be a dumb f*ck and play closed courses, y'all. I hate this as much as any other disc golfer, but let's not do stuff that'll get courses pulled for good. Lots of courses, to the best of my knowledge, still remain open, so please be smart, and keep the group sizes to an absolute minimum.

Also, f*ck whoever that a-hole is in Portland who destroyed a bunch of baskets.

South Carolina's governor just issued an order shutting down many things, including "sports with....shared equipment." Spartanburg is closing their courses tomorrow (some of the best in the state), and I'd expect much of the rest of the state to follow suit. (Gatherings of more than 3 people were already banned).

Here's where we are in Ohio. Something is changing in the coming days.

This is from the Erie County, NY which is home to a. The Buffalo Bills and B. to four courses - which are now being pulled as per the press release:


The Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry has announced that disc golf courses at Chestnut Ridge, Emery, Ellicott Creek, and Como Lake Parks will be closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and due to concerns about safe social distancing while playing. New signage will be installed at each disc golf course advising of the closing and baskets will be removed from Chestnut Ridge, Emery, Ellicott Creek and Como Lake parks and stored until the courses are reopened.

“The crowds at disc golf courses in our parks have been increasing and it is difficult to maintain proper social distancing under these circumstances,” said Commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Forestry Troy P. Schinzel. “In addition to the large numbers of people on the course, all the players are touching the same baskets as they play through. Keeping people safe is our first priority and that’s why we will be closing the disc golf courses until further notice.”
