Pros: Lots of mature trees and lots of OB. Hole 14 is an island shot that is a special treat. Course will give you a workout! There are many elevation changes that shoot both up and down hill. Some hills have a little of both. Some of the holes have actual benches and some have more rustic benches fashioned out of whatever is available. All serve their purpose though. Some holes have a trash can as well. Hyzers, anhyzers, and straight shots are all required to score well here.
Cons: A road winds through the course so sometimes you have to wait on traffic. Some people also like to park alongside the road...of course why would you park along a golf course anyway?
Other Thoughts: I could play this course over and over again. It's always fun to play this course and USI on a day trip (with a special lunch stop at for wings and beer of course). The noises coming from the zoo also make the course one of a kind!

Pros: Nice long cement t pads. Well marked new signage. Very challenging course with hyzers and anhyzers. good use of trees, not too many and mostly not too close to the tee pads. Great use of elevation changes, lots of ups and downs. Multiple T pads on several holes, very well maintained course. This course has some of the toughest anhyzer shots I have ever played, some short some long. Lots of benches and trash cans.
Cons: Not too many, as one poster stated one hole you have to walk in front of another T pad. If your disc goes into a creek bed be careful there were a large number of sink holes right around the creek that were very deep, easy yo get hurt. Keep it on the fairway and you will be fine. A couple of pads are not very level. Not really a problem, but a road runs right down the middle of the course and you may have to wait for traffic to pass every now and then.
Other Thoughts: Great course can't wait to play it in the spring...

Pros: This is one of the best par 54 courses I have ever seen. Every hole offers shot choices different from the last. Distances are varied and intelligently designed to give every hole the possibility of birdie, par and bogey. There are even a couple of ace runs and chances for worse than bogey on a few holes. Beginners and pros alike can all find something to enjoy about this course.
Cons: Bathrooms and water would be nice
Other Thoughts: If we have to be stuck with mostly par 54 courses instead of par 72 for now I wish they could all be this fun and challenging.

Pros: This is a truely great disc golf course. The hole park is set on a hillside and you are either throwing up a hill or back down it for most of the holes. There are nice teepads with several holes having alternate pads and nice tee signs. There are some shorter holes a lot of holes in the 300-450 range. Some of the longer holes are down hill so you still have a good chance to reach them for a 2. There is a lot of risk and reward as well, several holes you can risk going OB for more distance and a birdie chance. The course is set in mature woods that are never very thick but never completely open either. It has some left turning holes and some right turning holes. Most of the holes have OB. This is a tough course but you can still score in the low 50's if you play well without much trouble. If you play poorly you could easily be in the 60's.
Cons: Not too many. The only thing I can think of is on one hole you have to cross in from of another teepad to get to the next hole. This is generally not a good design so you might have to wait for people to throw if you might have to wait to throw. There are also a lot of roads in play so you have to be very careful with traffic.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course if you are in the area. Challenging, fairly long and tons of fun to play.

Pros: Awesome course with lots of challenges that will both inspire and humble the average player. Lots of moderate length holes that favor control over power. An excellent mix of different hole layouts that make this course a pleasure to play again and again.
Cons: Very thick vegetation lining many of the fairways...an errant throw will have you wishing you had brought a machete! The road that winds through the park brings in some traffic that might delay/alter some shots.
Other Thoughts: I am definately spoiled living in Bowling Green, KY. I can be at any number of sweet courses within minutes. However, I find myself really wanting to go back and play Mesker again. Yeah, its that good.

Pros: Alternate tees for holes 1,5,6,8 and 14. Lots of elevation change and good variety of shot shapes.
Cons: A couple of holes are kind of cramped. They just look like they were squeezed in.
Other Thoughts: This is a terrific course. There are a number of large trees but it is not a tunnel course and if your drive is errant you will still have a shot at the basket in most cases.

There are a few ace runs. And despite the fact that every hole is a par three there are some birdie opportunites.

Pros: Challenging Course with lots of evalation changes and OB. Many shots will require some thought before choosing your route. Scenic course Spring through Fall.
Cons: Cars are allowed to drive through the one way roads. No bathrooms.
Other Thoughts: A few walkway bridges and hillside stairs would aid in navigating the layout. Porta Johns and a water source would add to the enjoyment of a great park course.

Pros: great layout, excellent placement in park, lots of OB and skilled shots. Hole 9 is a beautiful shot over a cobblestone bridge, hole 14 (island hole) is definitely one of a kind and tougher than it looks.
Cons: Cars can be parked along the road and can drive through while you are playing, other than that its almost a perfect course.
Other Thoughts: next too a Zoo, so you can hear some strange sounds, very amusing when playing with your buddies.

Pros: Very good use of park space. Has a variety of uphill, downhill and strategic shots to test your game. Road Ob comes into play often. Fast greens make can send your disc over the hill for a longer come back putt. Hole 14 is an uphill Island green....a very nice challenge. Designed by David Greenwell, Nick Fest, and Dane Prevo.
Cons: the only con is that it is only 18 holes!!
Other Thoughts: a great course that is worth playing more then One Time.
