Pros: Variety, scenic beauty, woods, and not over-played. Three sets of tees (some shared on some holes) add variety and challenge, as well as vary your shot selection. Alternate pin placements on almost every hole I believe. The woods here are a mix of hardwoods toward the back of the course, jack pines through the middle, and a mix of prairie woods up front. This offers a nice change of scenery and feel of playing much more of a park than the actual land used. The balance here is great with long, short, right, and left. The signs are very nice and unique touches like the carved wood benches offer the finishing touch. The woods and brush offer both a canopy to limit the height of drives, and the trees themselves force specific flights as well as offer options for RH or LH players. I cannot complain about the concrete pads here because they are actually installed corrctly and flush with the ground for the most part.
Cons: Not much at all for elevation here, course is almost completely flat. No water hazards at all, and not real OB but some backyards for the new subdivision. So as far as the perfect balance, there is a little missing from an amazing course.
Other Thoughts: Yulga is a excellent course and well worth the trip to point. If you couple this course with a round at Standing Rocks, you're gonna be extremely glad you came to the area. Yulga alone is worth a trip for a travelling player. Yulga has far less (if any) poison ivy compared to Standing Rocks. Playing a night round here is FUN and DARK! With some elevation and water hazard, the course would rate nearly a 5! I've been palying this course since it was placed in the ground, and it has continued to mature and get better and better.

Pros: One of the best courses I've ever played. A great challenge to all types of players. The densely wooded to the long narrow fairways to the semi-wooded holes provide a good variety. Good tee-off platforms and markers. Multiple tees on each hole for different caliber of players.

Map posted at the beginning of the course. Holes are clearly marked.
Cons: If you haven't played it before, it can be a little difficult to follow were each hole is. I recommend snapping a picture of the map with your cell phone for reference.

Pros: This course is the best course I have ever played. Everything and I mean everything here is the best that it could be. The tee pads are amazing playing red white and blue. Some holes even have diamond shaped pads that slowly shrink down as you get to the end of the pad. Never seen that before! Sweet benches crafted from wood cut down in the park. The fairways are nicely cut through the tall pines. The risk of losing a disc is very minimal. They have 3 different alternate pin placements. The pines smell so good! Also have a porta potty on hole 9. Great course for anyone! Definitely will be back. Only 45 minutes from my house! Great mix of open and wooded holes as well.
Cons: Only thing I can say would be a con is the lack of garbage cans but this is the only con I have.
Other Thoughts: First hole is to the right of the parking lot. When we were there we were lucky to find a spot to park. Park is kinda out in the middle of nowhere but well worth finding it! Beautiful!

Pros: It was a very fast play, we were enjoying the course and actually let a group play through on us a few times. We still played it as fast as our regular course. Meaning it is easy to follow and set up very well and we could understand how to play every hole fairly well, quickly. Many different options for tee and hole locations.
Cons: The underbrush is hard to figure out, when you think it is thin its thick with raspberry vines, and when you think it thick your disc is sitting in the open with a spotlight on it.

 Great Course

Pros: This course has great signage and paths; there are no questions regarding where the basket or next tee is. The fairways are constructed brilliantly, with many lines to the basket on most holes. Multiple tees on every hole, different basket placements on several holes. The course is difficult, to play it as all par 3 (this is logical due to most distances) makes hitting par very difficult unless you are really good. Areas outside the fairway are very difficult to shoot from if you go off course (lots of pines in the way), but you won't lose your disc as off-fairway ground levels are relatively clear of brush. Overall a beautiful experience playing 18 holes, while at the same time taking a nice walk in the woods.
Cons: Lacks long holes that would challenge the short-hole player. No elevation changes. Signage is posted in plastic envelopes stapled to 4x4 tee signs - subject to vandalism (some were missing). Crowded lots of the time (UW-Stephen's Point is very close and is the home course for this club). Not recommended for new players, as you might get discouraged early.
Other Thoughts: I agree with most of the substantive reviews on this course. I played it as a noob three years ago, then played it again today, and see it as a totally different course. This is a course that defines disc golf. You can set up a disc golf course anywhere, but to make it real, it takes a mind that considers challenges and alternatives. I will generally play wherever there are baskets, but when I find a course that is actually a course, I am enthused.

Pros: This course is well thought out and offers a variety of shots open and tight, long and short. mastering this course requires a bag of tricks/skills. The multiple tees offer very different shots and makes the course more accessible to newer players. Fairways are well defined reducing the "luck" factor found on so many wooded courses. course is well kept and the signage is clear. TRhe flat terrain is easy on the knees.
Cons: The city appears to be overtaking the course with a subdivision. the city doesn't care to maintain garbage cans on the course but do post them up front, which is no problem if players would all pack their garbage.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the stop

 A Must

Pros: Extremely nice tee pads and tee markers; tee signs; multiple tees; multiple pins; fairways and the area just off the fairways is generally very trimmed; a large variety of shots are required; the course is easy to follow (just be sure to go to the right, not left, after the 4th); the pins are all clearly marked with a number on top; the pins have orange highlighting to make location easy; benches; very significant difference between the choices of tee shots on some holes - different fairways in some cases!; practice basket available; wood chips on many fairways; discs are generally easy to find; the effort put into this course shines through
Cons: No long holes - the two longest are 420 feet and 385 feet; most tees don't have branches until below 50 feet off the ground - this allows some really bad shots off the hook because the trees aren't usually too hard to get through; tee signs could use more detail; tall grass in some locations increases the chance of a tick grabbing you (one got my bag when I played); some areas (not many) close to the fairways will make finding your disc difficult; enough of a gap between some sets of trees to allow poor shots to end up in a favorable position; no elevation changes
Other Thoughts: This course is very much on the high end of presentation - the first set of tees showed us that. Each tee has its own wooden post colored red, white, blue, or a combination of the colors that makes locating the appropriate one very easy. Each tee also has its own sign that shows a map of the hole (missing obstacles, unfortunately) and distances depending on pin location. The tees and signage are very impressive, especially considering the course is free!

There really are no glaring negatives about this one. The 'cons' listed above are, in general, pretty minor. It's really more of a list of elements that would need to be corrected to make this course 'perfect - 5.0'. Unfortunately, there are enough elements missing that a score of 4.5 is also too high.

This course is a must play. If I lived within 90 minutes, I'd be out here at least 5 times a season. The holes are very well designed, the shots required vary by quite a bit, and the variety of tees adds a lot of depth, but what will stick with me the most is the incredible presentation and effort seen in this course. There are so many little things that you'll notice as you play here that will make you appreciate Yulga.

Yulga was a high point of our disc golf trip in Central Wisconsin. It's not perfect, but nothing that is lacking is unforgivable. This course is nothing short of excellent - 4.0.

Pros: Great tight holes and long straights. The tree cover is perfect making it a challenge for all skill levels. Multiple tees and pins. Hole placement allows for a quick front or back nine as both holes 9 and 18 end at the parking area. Paths are cut well to lead from hole to hole.
Cons: Flat and houses are beginning to impede the edges of the course.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course, worth visiting the area for. It is challenging but not overwhelming. It is not exhausting either, works quite well for a 36 hole outing if you want to spend the extra time discing.

Pros: Multiple concrete tees (usualy 2-3 per hole) with multiple pin placements for a few holes. Technical and tight fairways and excellent mix of shots with long and shorts. Well kept.
Cons: No elevation.
