Detroit Lakes fun but needs a tune up
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
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.

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.

Fun 30 mins!
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
