Pros: The Loop course at Lincoln Drive Park in Grand Forks is pretty sweet. Similar Feel to The Regular circuit, but with just a little extra. Three more holes, and three par 4's (at least according to the DGCR scorecard). A little more contour, with added minor elevation changes. A couple of holes that come close to the river.

The equipment is pretty sweet too. It was my first time playing a course featuring Frolfware targets. Not that it is a big departure from other standard disc golf baskets, but they were pretty cool. The tees were adequate, and each was marked with a numbered sign. Layout wasn't too tough to follow. It is basically, as the name suggests, a loop around the park.
Cons: It is still fairly wide open, maybe even more so than the other course on site. Also lacking any great, standout holes.

Natural tees were dry and level, I don't remember any of them being a problem, but mud was mentioned in other reviews.

No benches, and the signage could be better. A map of both courses would be a nice touch also.
Other Thoughts: As is the case on many days if I had to guess, wind is maybe the biggest obstacle here. My approaches were not as tight as I would like, and this resulted in several missed putts.

I scored a 72 (+6) with four bogeys, two double bogeys, and two birdies. The birdies came late, one at hole 17, and one on the final, 21st hole. I really enjoyed the last hole, and nailing a high arcing hyzer putt from about 40' out for the deuce. It is a longish hole, that has lots of open space, teeing low then rising a bit over kind of a grassy plateau, then dropping down to the pin. My drive was a good one, but still well outside of 30', so I gave a good fist pump and a shout when the floater of a putt hit chains and dropped.

Pros: Course is well taken care of and is in good shape. Lots of shot variety with both narrow and open shots, and also holes that require long shots as well as finesse shots. Trees make it fairly challenging but lack of underbrush makes it hard to lose a disc. Also not as busy as the other Lincoln Park course.
Cons: Needs better signage. Most of the holes were fairly easy to find but some of them were more difficult as the tees don't say where the basket is. There are no concrete tee pads like at the other Lincoln Park course, so the tees can get muddy. Some of the tee signs are falling over. All of the holes are par 3s, even regardless of length or difficulty.
Some of the holes are difficult to make in three shots, while others are easily done in two.
Other Thoughts: Not as good as the other Lincoln Park course but it's alright. Also it says on here that it is 18 holes, but when I played it had 21. Not sure if those extra 3 holes have been added recently.

Pros: This was a very fun round for me. I was lucky enough to find a couple locals to show me the way. The course is fairly long, as in long holes, and a long time to play relative to other courses. It definitely had some challenging elements. I particularly liked the basket on a pole on a hill. Can't wait to play this again now that i know where to go.
Cons: some of the tees and baskets were in rough shape. there was no map online or onsite, this would have helped tremendously. it would have been difficult to find my way through this course on my own.

 Long but casual course

Review By: ACE Ventura

Pros: - Bright yellow baskets easy to see from tees and are all in good shape
- If you like going for more long throws instead of finesse, then you'll like this course.
- The entire park is mowed and a fair amount of trees, it's impossible to lose a disc here
- Hole #12 basket is high up on a stump and probably one of the signature holes on this course, neat location
Cons: - A lot of back and forth monotony
- Little diversity between holes, a lot of straight shots
- Only a couple of tees are cement, the rest are natural and have been worn down into the ground so people tee off from the side of those ruts
- Zero elevation change until Hole #18 which is deep and uphill
Other Thoughts: Easy, open course that has many longer holes, good for beginning to intermediate players, I think pros would think it was a cake-walk. If the main Lincoln course is packed I would recommend this course, it's right in the same park. I played both courses in a row and the regular course is a bit better.

Pros: First, the baskets were all in great shape. Well marked and easy to find. The first couple of Tee pads were conceret. The lay out was easy to follow. This course is easy for a begininger to learn on and enough for a more season player. The use of the trees were nicely done, like on Hole 5.
Cons: Most of the Tee pads were grass, dirt, mud or water. Couple of the Tee signs were missing and there was no information, just Hole # 1. A course layout sign would help alot. Hole 16 & 17 baskets were to close together. I made the mistake, shooting at 17 went, I was playing on 16.
Other Thoughts: The park is great place. Nice clean restrooms and nice shelters. Bring your own drinks.

Pros: GF had a DG course, and did well with the area, some trees but not too many. A little elevation but not any cliff shots
Cons: small, confusing when trying to figure out which basket to throw to. muddy at times, It's grand forks.
Other Thoughts: a good little course and i am glad I had something to play while I was there.

Pros: The course features enough trees to make it interesting, but not too many to make it unfair. The course's level of difficulty should appeal to all skill levels. Most everything is well marked, and there are signs at all tees (except #17). Each tee is next to the previous target, so it's very easy to find your way around. The course does not interfere with other areas of the park (but you might have to watch out for joggers and people walking their dogs).
Cons: The tee pads are dirt, and sometimes muddy. On some holes, multiple targets are in view, and it's difficult to tell at first which one to throw to. The maps help, but you still might throw to the wrong target if you're not careful.
Other Thoughts: I had a lot of fun playing this course, so I recommend it to anyone in the Grand Forks area.

Not being from the area, I don't know this for sure, I think the photos posted for this course are actually for the "outer" course (the one with DISCatcher targets). Maybe someone from the area can elaborate on that...
