Detroit Lakes fun but needs a tune up

Review By: BigTexas
Played: 24  Reviewed: 3  Exp: 29.2 Years
Pros: Fun little course always tear it up when I am there visiting family. Concrete tees. Baskets in good shape and the park is well maintained.
Cons: Saw ground markers for a back nine but no map or post marking them. There is a lot of room to stretch this course a redesign would help esp since the next closest course is 25 miles away
Other Thoughts: With the new technology in disc design this course is VERY short. A simple layout change to incorporate the whole park with 2 pads per hole could really turn this course up with 18 different looks at the (9) baskets.
The course is fun though for a quick 9

Up and Down the Hills

Played: 15  Reviewed: 9
Pros: Nice Mach II baskets and concrete tee pads.
Signs display everything including where the next tee is relative to the hole you're playing.
The park itself is full of activity.
Holes 3,4, and 5 have great elevation changes.
Cons: Hole 2 and hole 6 are worthless.
Baskets could be strategically placed in better, more challenging locations given the vast number of trees in such a small area.
Other Thoughts: Expierienced players won't have much of a challenge with this one but its still a fun course for casual throwing.
Course was easy to find and there's plenty of parking spaces.
I also noticed a few broken chain links on some of the baskets.

Pros: Nice park area near. Nice Trees. Concrete pads. Some neat holes.
Cons: half holes are less than 200 ft. none over 300 ft. Could be redesigned to maximize area.
Other Thoughts: Great course to learn on, or to bring kids to. Beach very close.
Very nice park area.

Pros: nice tee pads and baskets, lots of mature trees, lots of elevation. Really nice signs
Cons: short. only 9 holes
Other Thoughts: Really fun little course, kinda short and only 9 holes, but not much around it, and really good for the space they had. lots of elevation. Probably a 2.5 or a 3 star course if there are other nicer courses around, but a solid 3.5 for the area

 Good Course

Pros: Altitude changes and a fair amount of trees without any tunnel shots
Cons: Hole lengths
Other Thoughts: With the exception of a few holes that are too easy this is a course that is well worth playing. The two downhill holes play very nicely, and a few holes on flat ground dotted with trees also play well. There is also one uphill hole that requires a nice shot for bird. Baskets are in good condition and the tees are surrounded by woodchips. Best 9 hole course I have played.

 Surprisingly good 9 hole

Pros: - Good use of elevation and limited space.
- Good signs/tees/pins/etc
- Great location in a fun town next to a beautiful lake. What more could you want?
Cons: - 9 holes
- Pretty short, everything is a 3 despite whatever the signs may say.
- Park/public facilities are a bit left of hole 3... which is a nice, technical, hyzer shot down a hill. A disc could kill somebody here if its crowded and you get a bad skip.
Other Thoughts: This is one of those "what if" courses. Like "what if" some of the holes had just a bit more length. And "what if" they just had a bit more room so they could make a proper 18 hole.

If you are in the area, definitely stop and play a few rounds. This is a fantastic 9 hole course.

Pros: -Nice elevation changes
-Beautiful park
-Excellent signage showing hole location and directions to next tee box
-Concrete tee boxes
Cons: -Course is only 9 holes is pretty short
Other Thoughts: There are numerous par 4 holes which would be par 3 holes on any other course. If you've never gotten an eagle before this is the course to get your first.

 Good Beginner Course

Pros: - A lot of variety on length, trees, and elevation
- No/Short Wait on holes
- Close Parking
- Well Mowed
Cons: - A lot of trash, no trash cans
- A lot of people just hanging out and walking around
- Not a lot of really long holes
- Par is really easy
Other Thoughts: I played this yesterday and it was a fun play. The holes give some good variety, but the pars are way to easy. We all got under par for the round and Eagles were pretty common. I suggest playing everything as a par 3 to make it better. The course could use a couple more longer holes and a lot of cleaning. The course was busy but we never had to wait for anyone before we teed off. It was very good for my beginner friends. If you are decent this course will be fun, but not too challenging.

Pros: Lots of ace run potential....I nabbed hole 2 w my putter a few years back. Good elevation changes. Lots of skip action on hard ground.
Cons: Lots of D.L. riff-raff hoodlums hanging around. Could be made more challenging and would be very easy to design at least 3 more holes (with a lil reconfiguring.).
A few times there has been high traffic w people not really discing...more like "party walking, chucking a disc into trees and swearing" types.
Other Thoughts: Build a new 18 or 27 hole course and charge $5 in the vast sourrounging area!!! D.L. Deserves a championshIp course

Pros: Nice Mach II baskets
Great use of elevation changes
Many Opportunities to take Ace runs
Cons: Some poor layout choices (some early tees very close to previous basket, hole nine finishes a little ways from first tee - although I like the line from basket 9 back to basket 1)
Other Thoughts: Enjoyable course, easily accessible to beginners, and can provide a bit of a challenge for more advanced players as par 2s. Mostly straight and natural left curves, although some holes can be taken left to right for those RHBH players to throw anhyzer drives. Good 2 disc course with a stable midrange and putter. Nice to have open grass fairways, well maintained. Great signs for first time players.
