Pros: -Garbage cans on most holes
-Benches on most holes
-Tee signs on every hole that clearly state par, distance, and hole number
-Good elevation
-Good baskets
-Holes are plenty long for you to use your driver.
-Not crowded
Cons: -Grass tee pads
-Wide open holes
-Lots of prickers
-Very long walk from hole 18 to parking lot
-I know that this course is pay to play in order to improve the course but this course is so not worth $4.
Other Thoughts: This course is only an ok course. It has lots of potential to become a better course. I felt very unsafe on hole 9's tee area. It is down hill on a ton of loose rocks. Bring lots of bug spray.

Pros: This course focuses mostly on long drives and elevation changes. Almost all of the holes are open field type shots, the only really obstacle is the long grass that they don't cut. If you can stay on the fairway (the cut grass) you should be able to put up a par or better on almost every hole.
The elevation changes are more than I was expecting because courses in this area don't seem to offer too much in that department.

There are a few really fun holes, that require precise shots through trees while then also adding an elevation change.

The pins are in decent to good condition, with nothing to really complain about.

The fields seem to be tended to quite nicely, mowed fairways are very visually pleasing and they also help by showing you where to throw/go.

You won't run into any crowds on this course, it seems to be off the beaten path
Cons: No concrete tee pads. This course really needs them for those long ripper shots.

Too many holes feel the same. I started this course feeling great, but then it just got mundane. Too many holes are long field holes or almost the same elevation holes. The last 4-5 holes, except for 18, seem exactly the same because you are playing back and forth over the same little valley.

Bugs - bring bug spray because these fields are prone to many insects that become annoying really quickly

Pay to play - this course doesn't seem worth the $4 per round to play. I know that with the money they can upgrade the course, but not many people will pay for a low grade course - especially when a few courses very near to this one (dreztka and sussex village park) are better caliber and FREE.

No real obstacles except for tall grass and the occasional rare tree. Too many field holes.

It is very easy to lose a disc in the grass once it gets tall enough late in the summer. The grass makes depth perception hard to judge and if you're not watching carefully it can take a while to find an errant throw.
Other Thoughts: This course has so much potential, but doesn't utilize it. There are just too many holes that are similar and most don't use the surroundings to their fullest extent.

Basically this seems like a course to really work on your distance if you hate practicing off the course.

Not a "must play" course by any means, but not the worst either. It is different than most courses in the area and can be a good place to get your stress out by ripping a bunch of big drives.

Pros: -best elevation changes in southeastern WI.
-long ripper holes
-quality baskets
-not busy at all
Cons: -first 5 holes are throw away open field holes
-some of the worst bare earth tees. One on hole 9 I would even consider dangerous(see below)
-walk from hole 18 back to 1 almost a half mile.
-poor choice for basket placement on many holes
-NOT a beginners course. Too long.
-SIGNAGE. each hole has a number on a pole, and barely visible sharpie yardage written on it. Whomever did the yardage was on crack on some of the holes, or had a measuring stick that was always 50-80 feet off.
Other Thoughts: Hmmm, this is a really tough review because this course, on this land(Kettle Moraine) has SO much potential with it's elevation changes. More than I have seen on any course in SE Wisconsin. The back 10 reminded me of the great Michigan courses. More on that in a bit.

The park is located on the back land of a historic park. When you drive up you walk down to hole number 1 in a huge open field. This was my first indication of a wasted hole placement.

Holes 1-5
Get ready to just let a drive rip, upshot if you don't have a gun, and a putt. We played with the rough mowed, but I can imagine this would be hell with the rough fully grown. There are no discernible markers(trees,stumps, hills) to help locate wayward discs. Hole 5 redeems itself with a basket placement slightly in the woods.

holes 6-9
Now the course starts to show it's promise. Hole 6 goes uphill and to the right. First sign of elevation change. A couple more long ripper holes than a nice sloping shot down hill on 8. Nine is def a sig hole being up on a hill shooting down, BUT the earth tee is full of large rocks and isn't flat on top. Not even sure if a cement tee would help here. First tee I have ever played at any course where i didn't feel safe throwing.

Holes 10-17
The course really shines somewhat on the back 9. Rolling hills typical of the Kettle.. Long shots, technical shots BUT pin placements could have been a little technical. The use of the land and obstacles isn't fully realized. Hole 18 is an against the grain ripper.

Summary, I did like this course, especially the back 9, and the whole time I just kept thinking how with a little more love and better design (and tee pads) that this could be a premier course in the state. The first five holes need to go as well. It sets a bad precedent to an otherwise decent course.
