Best course in Springfield
Pros: Well layer out and challenging at any level. Elevation changes. Nice mix of open and trees. Perfect for tournaments.
Cons: Some shots may interfere with park lovers. May be too challenging for beginners.
Other Thoughts: Was my home course for 8 years. Ppl from out of town love this course but also hate how hard it is.

The Mother Lode on the Mother Road
Pros: This course is equipped with NexTEEs...
36 holes in one park...
The new layout for the south course is now in play - all 18 baskets are now in. 15, 16 and 18 from the old layout are now 1, 2, and 3 of the new north course.
Cons: In the process of being renovated yet again... but the Park District is A-1 and quick to move forward once ground breaks...
The second course is now playable...
Other Thoughts: www.discgolfclub.org
is the host club
Here is a copy of the layout that was approved by the local park district and installed by the local park district and is now a reality and available for you to play... and write your own review...

Pros: Good Practice for diffrent types of shots. to get below par from any of the 3 tees, one has to pull out some good shots on a consistent basis.
Most of the renovations have been completed, the course is becoming more playable.
Most of the pins are in B location as well.
Cons: Cross country runners on saturdays..
grass hasnt grown back yet..
needs course maintaince more regulary, lack of trash cans.
Other Thoughts: an awesome course to play.. 80 percent of the players play the red tees...
try the white tees or the blues!

Not bad at all
Pros: Nice mature trees, defined fairways, nice mix of shots and OB's
Cons: hard to follow, some construction noted on hole three making the fairway on 4 very, very muddy. Hole 17 doesn't really have a fairway due to over growth, only direct path could lead to hitting a building or going in the road.
Other Thoughts: Would love to play this in cooler weather. When i went it was horribly humid. Would love to see more courses like this one

Pros: One of the longest courses in Illinois. Great mix of shots to test your mettle and unload your bag. Technical expertise required. From the long tees t the long basket placements, have potential to go out of bounds on 12 holes.
Cons: Renovation is still ongoing. Been plagued with various "natural habitat" issues that have impeded the renovation around the pond.
