Pros: --Great location, right outside Germantown and Menomonee Falls
--Park has many other activities to do
--Good signage
--Uses the land that was given as well as they could
--Uses as much elevation as possible in the park
--Trees are utilized where given
--Great course for beginners to learn the course and build confidence
--Leagues are held in spring, summer, and fall
--Great for night golf
--Open year round (although Dretzka Winter 24 right down the road)
--Great baskets
--Good navigation
Cons: --SHORT Tee pads (although the holes are short enough)
--Half of the holes are very boring and feel like filler
--Way too short for most players
--This place gets very flooded with any heavy amount of rain
--Shot variety is lacking
------No RHBH Anhyzer shots or LHBH shots
Other Thoughts: I think this course gets a little too much hate for what it was meant to be. The land was utilized as well as it could have and it is definitely geared towards a beginner. It has enough amenities going for it and it is a blast to play for beginners, so I will give it a 1.5

I know of people (beginners) that will only play here when they go disc golfing because it is the only course in the area that doesn't frustrate them.

Pros: * It is a very wide open course with not to many obstacles other than holes 1, 3, & 9.

* fun course to try and hit some aces :) since there are really no trees to interfear with your shot unless your on 1 or 9

* nice clean park.

* good signage

*open year round
Cons: * very wet after it rains, which since it has latley the course .itsn't in the greatest shape.

* only nine holes.

* not much of a challenge if you are a experienced player.

Other Thoughts:
* Defintely a beginner course, fun but nothing more than a little course with all tees between 180 and 230 in a park in germantown.

* Overall though it was pretty decent.

 Boring and open

Pros: The course plays through a small, flat neighborhood park. The course is grassy, with nice thick grass that's well-maintained, and a few scattered small trees on a couple holes to add some minor obstacles. The course is clearly designed as a beginner course, with shorter distances and mostly open shots with no rough, so it's a great place to try out the sport or bring younger kids to play.

There are concrete tees on all holes, and all were in good shape and level. The tee signs are plenty descriptive with hole layout and distance. The flow of the course is obvious, so navigation is never a problem here. The baskets were in good shape.
Cons: The course is just 9 wide open and short holes, so there isn't any challenge or variety to be had here. There is no elevation or really any trees that come into play, so the course doesn't force any different shots at all, meaning that even as a beginner course it won't teach players to work on different types of throws. Because all the distances are pretty close, all the holes kind of run together.
Other Thoughts: This is an ok course to let someone try out the game, but even for a beginner course it's lacking in variety and challenge. If more trees were brought into play so that the course required a little bit of shot shaping, the short distances would make it a great place for newer players to learn, but as it stands the course is just a place to practice wide open approach shots. If you just want to add to your tally, make a stop here, otherwise, there are tons of better courses around that are more worth your time.

Pros: Too start, this is my home course. I'll try to keep bias out of it.

- This course is obviously a great one for beginners. It suits it's commmunity well because of the family atmosphere. This is where I started the game and I believe it serves me well, at least better than a Brown Deer, or Dretzka.

- There are a few fun holes. Specifically 1,3, and 9.

-As previously stated, a great one to bring the kids to.

-Great signs, clear with distance

-Good location, in the middle of a quiet neighborhood. Not too many wierd People. Also, next to no vandalism.
Cons: - Short, very very short. 155- 236.

- Mostly wide open holes
Other Thoughts: - I would not call this a terrible course just because of it's target audience.

- For those of you who may want a challenge, we have been experimenting with alternate tees and there have been talks of alternate baskets.

-Take this course with a grain of salt.

Pros: This course is in a nice clean park that has good tee signs & concrete tees. Maintenance is usually top notch & the tee signs / pads are in great shape as they are rarely vandalized. I would recommend beginners & younger players to play here to get a feel for the game. For the more seasoned player it's good for a warm-up or practice round before playing a full round at the nearby larger courses. This course is open in winter.
Cons: Short holes (155 - 236 ft), straight open shots, & lack of multiple placements. You can go through this course twice in an hours time & it's a multipurpose field in which you might run into other park users.
Other Thoughts: All in all it's not a terrible course, it uses the available space fairly well, only rarely crossing into other park activity space (baseball diamond & running track). I'd recommend this course to a beginner / younger player or as a practice area for more experienced player.

 A 9 hole course for the family!

Pros: Great signage. Decent tee pads, though they are small. This course is located in a wonderful park with lots of great playground equipment, and even a shelter with picnic tables. Holes 1 & 9 are decent, as they have some trees to navigate, but the rest of the holes (for the most part) are pretty wide open shots in the realm of 200 ft. or so.
Cons: Holes are short. Typically 170 ft.-230ft. for all nine. This takes the challenge out of the game for alot of us.
Tee pads are roughly 6 ft. X 3 ft., so they are definitely on the small side.
Other Thoughts: Let's look at this course for what it is. This is not a course where you set up a league, and a bunch of guys come and have a tough competition week after week. You can go down the road to Dretzka if that's your cup of tee.
This is a park that serves a wonderful purpose for the game. Families can come here, and learn what this game is all about, without worrying about their speed of play affecting others. Course is easy to navigate, and the signs do a nice job of filling you in on hole location, and next tee pad location.

Plan a picnic with the family here, and play some discgolf. The kids will have fun, and if they get bored, they can walk back to the picnic area at any given time, as the course kind of goes around in a circle. You never really find yourself too far away from anything else in the park here.

Pros: This is an excellent course for beginners. Not many obstacles to make it easy to get use to how to play. Tees are paved and have good signage. The holes are shorter distances.

Also, very good for more advanced players to practice on their aiming and short game.

The course is very well maintained. Grass is kept nice and short. Little to no garbage laying around. If signs are missing or broken, they are replaced fairly quickly.
Cons: For more advanced players, the holes are a bit too short and easy.

Pros: course is made for beginners

well maintained and a great place to take kids along to

all holes have good teepads and signs
Cons: extremely short and open

2 holes have minor trees in the way, other than that it is point and shoot and then tap it in for an easy birdie

not much for elevation except one gentle slope
Other Thoughts: beginner course that is nice to have in the neighborhood, but is nothing worth traveling to

Pros: What I personally like and how this course stacks up:
1) Holes with good risk/reward. Fair, but harsh punishment for bad decisions or execution. == D
2) Holes that have rewarding birdie opportunities for me. I throw 300' accurately, 360' max. == D+
3) More wooded than open - lots of variety of shots required caused by hole shape and topography == D+
4) Natural beauty (Appalachian beauty preferred) and seclusion. == C-
5) Bonus points for multi-shot holes with defined landing zones, good risk/reward and multiple options to play them. == N/A
Other Thoughts: It's all about feeding the addiction, so I ranked this course subjectively based on my own "personal addiction factor". The grades above tell how well the course will draw me back to itself again and again and again. Since I have played a decent number of courses (125 18-hole, 64 9-hole as of mid 2009), my hope is that players/explorers who have similar addiction tastes will find my ratings list helpful as they choose courses to play and explore.

Over time, I expect to fill some of my reviews in with more descriptive verbiage...if what I can add anything to what has already been written. For now, my list is more important to me than the verbiage of my reviews.

I fully expect others with different tastes/philosophies to disagree with me....that's the fun of things here. See my profile for my rating philosophy.
