Very bland park course.
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: 18 hole course located in Miniwaukan Park in Mukwanago, WI. Park also features a baseball diamond and walking path.
DGA baskets, all in decent enough shape, and mounted well. One pin position per hole, as far as I could tell. They caught well enough.
A decent smattering of mature hardwood trees dot the landscape, and provide the only real obstacles.
Very beginner friendly, with mostly open lines and not a ton of distance. Ace runs abound.
Cons: The tees here are natural, and in reasonably bad shape. Rutted out and not great. There are several you'll want to tee off the side of, especially if there is any kind of moisture on the ground.
Navigation is somewhat wonky. The tee signs are large and apparent, but only show the hole number. Then, with it being a mostly open park, it's not always apparent which basket you're going at. Having a map available is helpful.
The course is mostly short, and almost totally flat. Outside of a couple holes, most players could play this with a putter and a mid.
Even with the few trees, the course is almost completely open. There are several holes that have some sort of line you can't take, but those are few and far between.
Keep your eyes open for joggers and dog walkers. The path pretty much winds right through the middle of the course.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty typical park course. Not a lot of challenge, crummy tees, shortish. If it were ever to get a redesign, this could probably be a very cool 9 or 12 hole course.
With that said, it's a decent spot for families and beginners. Others will play it once and probably be good after that. Not worth going out of your way for, but hey, it's frisbees in the park, and that's not all bad, no matter how you slice it.

Good practice course
Pros: -Some trees for obstacles in this course
-Because this course is in a grass park there is no undergrowth or thorns to loose your disc in
-Very friendly course
-If these holes aren't long enough for your liking nothing stops you from backing up an extra 50 feet or more on most holes to throw longer drives
Cons: -Almost no elevation change
-Grassy fairways are open on either sides. If you have enough power you can bypass most obstacles with little challenge
-Tees are marked by limited signage. Some is missing/unreadable.
-Tees are dirt/mud and become unusable with rain
Other Thoughts: This course is fun but it is not worth driving from great distances to play a round. I enjoyed my round here and will be back now that I have a better understanding of the layout of holes. The first time through can be difficult because of missing and damaged signing. Elevation change would be nice but this course makes the best use of the land that it could. Overall, a good practice course but nothing I would bring my buddies to for a round.

OK park course
Pros: The course plays through a large flat park with nice mature trees throughout. Nearly all the holes play among the trees, with a few holes at the edges of the park that have some brushy rough on one side to catch an errant drive. The rest of the holes are grassy with no rough, just some scattered trees to avoid. Other than a walking path, the area is used only by disc golfers, so there isn't too much interference.
There is an ok mix of ace run holes, and moderate distance holes, with one or two that are long enough to allow for a real drive. Most holes have multiple lines, but there is a mix of holes where the best line calls for a right to left or left to right shot. The baskets are in decent shape, and catch ok.
Cons: The course design is pretty boring. Most holes are reachable with a mid, and have multiple available lines, meaning that there just isn't all that much challenge. Because the holes are pretty open, and there isn't enough length variety, the course gets old pretty quick, and all the holes start to feel the same. The walking path is in play on several holes, and it seems to get some use, so you may have to wait on pedestrians throughout the round.
The course holds water, so there can be large deep puddles of standing water a while after rain over a lot of the course. Most of the tees are worn down into the ground, so they turn into puddles or mud pits, and the ones that are dry are rutted and uneven. There are supposedly long tees on all the holes, but the ones we were able to find were marked only at ground level, and many of the markers were overgrown or worn away, so unless you play with a local stick to the short set of tees. Even those aren't well marked, with most of the signage gone or vandalized. There are a few places where there is no numbering whatsoever so you have to do some guessing at the layout, and it doesn't match up with the course map posted here.
Other Thoughts: This isn't a terrible course, there are some decent holes here, there just isn't enough variety or challenge to keep it interesting and draw me back for another round. Beginners won't find any places to lose discs, and the fairways are open enough that it shouldn't be frustrating. More experienced players will need to look elsewhere to test their game, and won't need to be creative with shot selection to be successful here.
