Pros: Full 18 holes with more co-ed play here than other courses. Good baskets. Easy to follow despite not being marked well. A good hour-long workout with some fun mid-range play. Has some elevation changes. Bench at Hole 6 is a welcome rest stop.
Cons: Short holes that reward luck rather than skill in some cases, usually skip holes 4 and 12 around nasty water, bad tee pads throughout are made worse by rain and snow. Lots of trash and graffiti. Nearby apartments and frat houses.
Other Thoughts: Good for beginners or those with less time, others go elsewhere. Oshtemo completely outclasses this course, but Knollwood can be preferable in high winds. Despite being a short course, discs are easily lost in water holes, swamps or snow cover.

Pros: Good beginner course. Short distances, but with plenty of trees to challenge the better player. Some elevation changes, and a few holes come close to the water (but the pond is quite small). Some of the holes seem to have two tees, but both are pretty easy. If a concerted effort to clean up this park were made, and some signs were installed, this might be a nice little park.
Cons: Baskets are is poor disrepair and trash and graffiti seem to be a big problem here. No signs of any kind on the tees (nor on most of the baskets), but the locals seem to be pretty friendly and will help you find your way around.
Other Thoughts: About what you'd expect of a course stuck in a tiny green space in the middle of college residence living. Seemed to be a lot of police visits while I was there (and I noticed a speed trap on Michigan Ave, so beware).

Pros: All par 3, to my knowledge. It's pretty easy place to start, a few holes are near water, but are easy to skip if you don't want to go in the water. Can be pretty packed on the weekends being free, and right by a lot of college apartments. People are mostly laid back that play here.
Cons: Sometimes you can get pretty backed up with lots of people.
Lots of Leaves in the fall.
Some of the baskets seem to be pretty tall compared to normal.
Worst water ever.
Other Thoughts: Baskets are pretty nice pretty fun and quick to play if people not to many people playing.
