Pros: This is a very nice recreational course that anyone who can walk hills can play. Set in a beautiful, well-maintained city park. Good mix of uphill and downhill shots. You can practice every shot (except for a big bomber) on this course.
Cons: Not a difficult course. The average player should be under par every round. But, you could make it more challenging by dropping par on each hole by one shot.
Other Thoughts: Watch for the left turn to hole 3. I missed it the first time.

Pros: This course has a good atmosphere with Good elevation change for a MN course....Good Baskets with nice Tee Pads....Most Tee Signs are In, with Directions to the next Hole's Tee Pad so the course is easy to navigate.....Located in the Heart of Minnesota!
Cons: As any MN player knows.....When you are near water the mosquitos are bad....And this course borders, the Great, Big Detroit Lake so the Bugs are Annoying....Most holes are short in distance!
Other Thoughts: This course Poses a fun Quick Round in the Heart of MN.......If you are a camper/fisherman/outdoors man the surrounding area will provide for you. This is Minnesota so the fishing is great and in the Detroit Lakes area you will not be disappointed....The course is well thought out for the size of the Park and poses unique elevation for this area..... If in the area it is worth the stop!

Pros: Great location and fine utilization of the space and set up of the park. This course is built on/around a nice sized hill. Several holes feature up or downhill shots. Nice amount of woods too. Well maintained. Great little 9.
Cons: Seems to be a bit of a 'hang out' for the local kids. You may wanna be careful about where you park.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful little wooded course about a block off the beaches of Big Detroit Lake. What more can you ask for?

Pros: Nicely plotted in a well kept park. Lightly wooded, not too many trees but enough to influence where you place your shots. Pretty good amount of elevation change.

Should be challenging enough for new players and some intermediate players.

It's a short walk from a beach,concert hall,waterslide, Zorbas, and other venues.
Cons: There are no holes that are memorable and there is a lot of traffic through the park at times. Not challenging for advanced players and some of the better intermediate players.

Pros: Well maintained city course. Great course for newbies and intermediate players.
Cons: There are not many long holes that typically appeal to the "big arms"
Other Thoughts: This is one of the older courses in MN and is quite a bit easier with the new technology in today's discs.

Pros: It is very scenic. Nice place to go for a good day to play some disc. The tees are very nice; cement. Good mix of short and long holes.
Cons: The tee-offs are a bit small. The baskets are not easy to ace, Not many chains.
Other Thoughts: There is a Zorbaz and beach close by. About a hour away from Fargo where there are many other courses.

Beautifully manicured park within the city park of Detroit Lakes. There is an excellent use of elevation change throughout the course. Flows very well, easy to get from hole to hole. Mature trees also are well used making use of a variety of shots, long and short.
Cons: Course can become very busy. With the city of this size, another nine would be helpful and workable in the same location.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course to play. There is a good chance for an ace on this course because of its relatively short holes. (most holes are reachable on a good first drive) Our group had a hard time leaving! Definitely worth a stop.

Pros: The course is very well maintained. There is a variety of uphill and downhill shots. The tees are cement. All the holes have plenty of short grass around them, so losing a disc is nearly impossible.
Cons: The baskets are a little smaller than most. The course can become busy at times.
Other Thoughts: After a round or two of discing on a hot day, head to the beautiful beach across the street.
