Driftless Area Epic for DG
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Their is a lot you could write about on this course review. This area of Wisconsin is the driftless area. Meaning extremely hilly with deep valleys. The lay of the land beckons one for autumn drives, hiking and yes- a great dg experience.
When you put a great course on a great piece of land you get an Utopian like setting. An epic disc golf experience awaits.
The classic course offers a basic pitch and putt type layout that utilizes the bottom of a valley here on the farm. So much fun to play!
Big Brother course works its way up a ridge. The extra work of elevation increase is rewarded with amazing views. Best views of any course I have played in the Midwest. Twenty plus years of playing random courses so don't take that statement lightly.
Big Brother will challenge you with long holes. Major elevation changes and greens that can be unforgiving.
Cons: Very little. I haven't given a course a 5 rating yet. Well, I have realized every course even the great ones will have flaws.
The only flaw here might be if a player has preference leaning towards tight and wooded. The course leans more towards open but defined fairways.
Other Thoughts: The course is located on a farm slash bed and breakfast. Lodging options exist from economical to lavish.
This is also a place you can take your non disc golfing friends along for the epic views, hiking, etc.
A must play for anyone in the Midwest!!

My Favorite Tournament Experience

Pros: Justin Trails is a course that is fairly open in many parts, owing to the farmland it is situated on, but offers startling and breathtaking elevation changes (you can see for miles). Once you graduate from the first few open holes, you will face a variety of tunnel shots that are complicated by severe slope in both R to L and L to R orientations. There is a pond to navigate from an elevated tee, which makes the disc choice difficult for determining distance, not to mention that the pin is plopped only 15 feet past the water.
The slope is what makes the course so fascinating in most cases, a mere consequence of the elevation.
Cons: While many courses tend to challenge the right handed player by creating a lot of anhyzers, this course is far more righty friendly than most and was a bigger challenge to the left handed player.
That's not really a con, but I AM left handed!
Other Thoughts: It's one of the best places because this old soybean farm--the older couple who owns the place spotted in the soybean field on the 5th hole and encouraged me to pick some to eat throughout my second round--is also a bed and breakfast. They now have a second course that is supposed to be far more challenging (called Big Brother).
I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend than to stay with your loved one and play disc golf.

Pros: Very long course, with great views! Both of these courses onsite provide challenges. Up and down steep grades, with both open holes, and close shots.
Cons: Not for the out of shape! The terrain altho well maintained, will challenge even experienced hikers.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for spectacular views, and a challenge, this is your place. The owners are very proud, and it shows in the condition of both courses. You can also stay onsite!

Bucket list course
Pros: Very open in places. Challenging enough that makes you use a variety of shots. Also, most tees do have shorter tees for the less experienced golfers. Steep hills and water holes were fun to navigate. All holes were clearly marked and the course followed a logical progression.
Cons: Some of the shorter tee spots were not found or were very hard to find. Marked by a small wooded plank.
Other Thoughts: This course is one of the nicest courses I have ever played. Should be one of your bucket list courses. the people in the shop were very friendly and course was in great shape, dispite no rain. Can't wait to come back. Every bit as nice as the Big Brother, but a little more relaxing.
