Pros: Fun shots with forgiveness to errant throws. It has a very nice layout for what the space has to offer. The course gets a good amount of play. Easy to navigate with nice signage!
Cons: The tee pads are made of brick. They were great at one time I believe but now they are quite run down. They have shifted on a few holes and are loose. Be careful not to step wrong and get hurt. The toe boards at the end of the tee pads have all but completely rotted away.
Other Thoughts: A great little week night course or local course to play. It would be great for young kids to start playing as it is beginner friendly yet offers a challenge. It is in need of some tender loving care as some tee pads are falling apart. A couple tee pads have sunk in in spots.

 decent course

Pros: Nice park, good signs and tees.
Cons: Busy park, only 9 holes,
Other Thoughts: Nice for a quick 9 if you are in Hutch. Going mid day is best.Not a lot of variety.Good for beginers to learn on or more advanced players to work on there short and mid range games.

 Good Intentions, Boring Course.

Pros: 1) Good Signage. I knew i was at a disc golf course the second i got to the park. The tee signs have hole number, distance, am/pro par, and a mini map.
2) Very nice tees, secure landscaping bricks, looks professional.
3) There is a good flow to the course, you always know where you're going next.
4) Some elevation change but not much so it's not a challenge, but at least it's not flat .
Cons: 1) Not much variety, whether in hole length, obstacles or throwing style, this course falls flat.
2) Hole 3 is missing basket(s)
3) Dual baskets, sounds nice, right? Wrong, there's a lot of guessing what position they are in, which in turn affects how far the hole is by up to 40 ft.
4) I hate throwing to or along the road and this course makes me do it on 5 holes.
5) For all the space and the long(ish) fairways, this course feels cramped and rushed.
Other Thoughts: Not a course i will go out of my way to play again but the only one around the Hutchinson area for miles.

Pros: -Fairly nice city park, great for a stroll through the park while playing.
-Nice if you are taking the girlfriend out for a casual round of fun.
-Well maintained park
-brick tees make your footwork easy.
-Scattered, large trees make it just enough to have something to throw around.
-slight elevation adds to the challenge on some holes.
-Good course for those of all skill levels. Just enough distance to potentially satisfy a more advanced player
-The course flows well enough to keep groups moving, resulting in rare occurrences of waiting around or having a gallery of people behind you.

Cons: -Not much of a challenge.
-No water
-Fairly basic course, containing sporadic trees and some hills

Other Thoughts: I love to disc golf but this course leaves plenty to be desired in general. Great course for a beginner in a clean park, but a more experienced thrower will likely find this course more casual practice than worth going out of the way for.

Update: The more I throw this course the more I find myself enjoying having a course that doesn't require looking around for a disc or trudging through thick underbrush. As my local course, I definitely find it easier to go out here without having to compensate extra time for unaccounted for hold ups. Plenty of people come out to play this course, however, I have never really found myself waiting a whole lot. All in all I have decided to bump my rating .5 as I am finding a new found enjoyment throwing it. I still would not recommend driving too far out of your way just to play the course, but those in the surrounding area should definitely come give it a shot.

 Enjoyable City Park Course With Friendly Locals!

Pros: Nice city park course takes up one square city block. The park is built around the town's water tower which is fenced in and serves as an hazard. The teepads are building blocks and work very well. The signs give the A and B lengths and Pro and Am pars. The baskets are DISCatchers but without numbers which really aren't needed here. Most of the holes are in the neighborhood of 300'. Only # 6 is shorter than 267' and # 5 is the biggee at 383'. The designers did a nice job of cramming a fairly challenging little course into this space.
Cons: The design is pretty straight forward with not much variety in length. I liked this course but there really isn't a signature hole or one that stands out. The park is relatively flat.
Other Thoughts: A big storm with 80 MPH winds blew through here about a month before I played and uprooted a dozen or more mature trees. They were still down and some actually added to the challenge, especially on # 9.
The locals were having a Tuesday night league ($1 entry) and invited me to play. Thanks for asking guys but I had to be somewhere that night.
If I lived in Hutchinson, I'd play here all the time. The course was perfect for me and my skill level.

Pros: nice use of available space (the designer got the most out of the park as far as layout is concerned)
bathroom on site (open only in summer months. other wise it is locked up)
a relatively quick play (15 to 20 minutes if flying solo and not having to wait for groups ahead of you)
can be on the technical side if your into that (lots of trees but not especially thick like some wooded courses)
probably wont lose any discs here unless you do something crazy off the box on holes 2, 3, and 4 to end up in the locked fence area around the water tower

Cons: can get crowded. I think that that is because of the lack of good courses to play within the Hutchinson area (Glencoe course sucks, Lake Dale course north of Dassel is laughable. the best alternative is to drive 40 minutes east and hit up the Crown College course just outside of St. Bonni or head north to St. Augusta or Annandale). If someone were to build a nice 18 holer within close proximity to Hutchinson then I think it would help to alleviate much of the problem (plenty of possible locations exist)

in the past I've come to notice that when playing holes 8 and 9 there is a house across the street that often has people hanging out in the yard who seem to have a taste for the wild side. lol. probably not a big deal but at the same time I can't help but to think that there activities might not always fall inline with that of the law (a minor distraction)
Other Thoughts: the 9 holes in the park provide very good entertainment and will challenge you to throw with distance while trying to avoid trees on the majority of holes (this is especially true on hole 5). hole 6 is your ace hole........PLAY IT!

Pros: Great course for beginners. Lots of manageable holes as far as distance but always technical for advanced players. A great blend of variety that caters to any play style and allows for various shots. Very easy to find and accessible; not really any serious hazards to consider except the possibility of throwing over the fence around the water tower near holes 3 and 4.
Cons: Very heavy traffic. If you're not local, try your luck in the Twin Cities or St. Cloud. Between 3 and 7 pm on weekdays you will be stuck behind large groups. This is my only real complaint about this course, as overall it's very comfortable and not intimidating.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find it forgiving, intermediate players a welcomed challenge, and advanced players a relaxing course with a lovely walk and shady grass with a good technical aspect to keep your game up. 6 of the in-laying pins will be moved summer of 2010.

 Discin' in a Park

Pros: ~ Is a quick play for those in a time crunch
~ Holes are not that long so it is a good course for beginners
~ Holes are well-marked with a map to the pin, directions to the next hole, and pro/beginner pars
~ Convenient to get to course
Cons: ~ Since you are playing in a park that was converted to a disc golf course, there are an abundance of trees and not a lot of variation with the holes
~ The map at Hole #6 does not accurately display actual pin placement, as the map would have one believe that the pin is the right, when in actuality, the in is straight out.
~ Could lose discs inside water tower fence
Other Thoughts: Overall, a well-maintained course and a decent play in smaller community. The trees offer challenge for more seasoned players while the length of holes makes it good beginner play.

Update: Played this course on 9/4 and it was extremely crowded with multiple groups of 6+ and youth galore. I am glad to see that kids are playing, but groups of that size are a major hindrance. Also, mosquitos were quite bad so pack your bug spray!

Pros: The course is located in a park that gets little other use, so it's mostly disc golfers. There are very nice signs with maps and lengths along with nice chainstar baskets.

The course has some elevation change and has good length given the size of the park. The park is nicely mowed and trimmed so losing a disc should be fairly rare (could lose one behind the watertower fence on #2). There are some non-tree obsticles: Watertower fence on #2,bathroom building on #3, and utility building on #8.

The park is wooded, but not heavily so there are enough trees to challenge most players but not so many that you need to bring an axe.
Cons: Short length for advanced players. The design is pretty basic, it really has no signature hole and there is no apparent design strategy that I can see. Most of the lengths are similar.

Pros: Fun easy course with a decent amount of trees and obstacles.
Cons: All holes seem to be the same, there is no really difference in distance and they are mostly straight.
Other Thoughts: If in Hutchinson, this park is a great place to spend an afternoon.
