Pros: - Course is spread out well in a small park, which allows for some decent variety.
- One hole plays by a forested area, and small trees are present on most of the holes. A little line shaping is needed to avoid them, but nothing too extreme.
- Good use of the pond for one hole, as a RHBH hyzer route has to clear a small corner of the water.
- Very good tee signs, grass teepads in good shape.
Cons: - Some of the holes are too short and too open to be enjoyable, just a tee sign and a basket in a field.
- Holes play around a lot of walking paths and other man-made obstacles, as well as through soccer fields. Almost half the course can be occupied on game days.
- Baskets in bad shape, but I have seen worse.
Other Thoughts: - Overall, an average small 9-holer. There are some decent highlights that make it memorable, but not remarkable. Definitely a great course for a beginner to learn the ropes, possibly a good stop for a pro just for a decent hole or two.

Pros: This course is located very close to the interstate and easy to get to. It is a nice park and you will not have to look for a disc as it lacks rough. It's a good option to stop for food and play a quick 9 to stretch your legs. There is a swimming pool with facilities open during the summer monthes.

9 Hole Recreational Disc Golf Course

Tee signs for all 9 holes.

Good variety of distances.

This is a great place for practice. I have never seen another golfer while playing. My dad live 7 miles away and says it's rarely played.
Cons: It lacks challenge for more experienced players.

Tee pads are natural grass.

The baskets are very old and some are beat up pretty good. Some putts fall out thru the bottom of the baskets.
Other Thoughts: There is a nice sports bar down the street. Great place to catch a game and food.

Pros: -Good range of hole lengths (from 200' to over 400')
-Signs are informative and include hole length and flight path
-Easy to follow navigation
-A couple interesting holes: 5 is a straight shot from the open into a grove of trees and the shot has to go over a slightly raised dam. 6 is a big left to right safe shot with a large willow tree in the middle, or a big risky right to left shot over the pond.
Cons: -Lack of facilities: no bathrooms or water that I saw.
-Grass tees
-Tee signs indicate that you throw from the right side of the sign, which is fine until you get to hole 6 where you are throwing from the dam, and the right side of the sign is on the side of a hill. Thus, that system doesn't really play well in practice.
-One of the baskets (7, I think) looks like it had been hit by a mower.
-A few holes interfere with other park activities (fishing, walkers, kids on the playground).
Other Thoughts: Overall, this course is your usual small town Illinois course, it serves its purpose as a local's rec course, but it seriously lacks intriguing holes.

Pros: It was directly off the highway so it was a good pit stop for our road trip. No bugs.
Cons: Quite a few of the baskets looked like they had been hit by trucks making it difficult to sink a putt. There were a lot of holes that played through childrens play areas (swing sets and such). There weren't many obstacles to avoid unless they were in the tee area.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't stop there again.
