Pros: Nice baskets
Cons: -Tees are almost non-existent, mostly rotted into the ground
-No map or signage whatsoever
-Posts by tees *Used* to have numbers painted so you knew which hole they were, the only one I could read when I was there looked like a 16, but there's only 9 holes?
-Grass is not mowed and completely overgrown around baskets and tees.
-only 1 hole I was able to find (I think it was the right tee to basket) that had any technical skill required, the rest was open fields.
Other Thoughts: If you have played this you may be able to play it again, but if you have never been here navigating the course is impossible and frustrating and the unmaintained field can very easily eat your disc, I spent almost an hour here, only playing 6 holes

Pros: Metal Baskets
Trees
Grass
(OK, I'm really having a hard time coming up with Pros)
Cons: Horrible course layout. I didn't see any signage or a rhyme or reason to how the baskets were oriented.
Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time here. Drive another mile north and play Belle Prairie.

Pros: Metal baskets, long holes.
Cons: Almost every hole starts out five feet behind a pine tree making it impossible to get a feel for where you're aiming. The holes that don't start behind a pine are straight across a huge field, one hole even brings the church into play as a hazard.
Other Thoughts: God doesn't want us throwing discs at churches. Avoid course at all costs.

Pros: The first couple holes were short but fun with some trees and buildings to avoid.
Cons: Hard to find the next tee, but atleast they were numbered. The tees for the back nine being mixed in with the front 9 made it confusing. Some of the later holes were very long and basically just crisscrossed back and forth across a big open field.
Other Thoughts: It's great that the church took the initiative to set up a course and make it open to anyone. There aren't any other options in that vicinity so very glad it was available.

Pros: There was never any pressure of being rushed. It is an open course with its perimeters surounded by pine trees.n Openness allows for almost any form of shot. The start of the course is easy found - maked by the large church sign which says, "start here."
Cons: Grass at the time was very long, making it harder to find discs. The cousre doubles itself; it is just a nine hole course with the back nine using the same pins, just different tees. There was no directions after the first hole, so finding the next was sometimes difficult, especially on the second nine. Two holes were made when the pine trees were small. Since then they have matured and make for nearly impossible shots. Some of the tee off boxes were also hard to find. Holes one and seven also run parallel to highway, which is a potentialy dangurous hazard.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course uses its surroundings well. It makes use of the trees in a unigue way. The church and a baseball backstop also can come into play. This course would be much impoved if it moved some of the pins (1 and 5) and the grass was better kept.

Pros: Distance shots. Very unique pin placement. Spread out design gives plenty of freedom to plan and execute shots on the strange holes.
Cons: Loss of direction. Targets seem to be from early era of disc golf. Long grass makes disc a pain to locate and there is no sense of out of bounds. Hazards are dangerous. Listed as 9 hole but is actually 18. Back 9 is pointless however because it recycles previous targets.
Other Thoughts: When you pull the first thing you see is a large church marquee with the phrase "Disc Golf hole 1 start here". The tee is marked by the sign for the church!! This is such a unique course because in the line of play are 1. Church roof. 2. parking lot....all of it. 3. baseball backstop. 4. U.S highway...and best of all. 5. An abandoned amusement park. Just one look at the pictures can describe some of its quirkiness (hole #4/#10)
