0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Rarely high-traffic
-Clean and pretty well maintained
-Achievable yet challenging
Cons: -Awkward water/marsh hazards
-Fairly short (not many to stretch a power-thrower)
-Bugs are bad, but it is the midwest so...
Other Thoughts: Love to throw this course during winter months as the lake attached offers fun ice-fishing. Great rec course.

Pros: This course has really good flow. You always new where to go to get to the next hole, even your first time playing.
There were a lot of trees on nearly all of the holes, only a couple of the holes were wide open.
Each hole had good design, with most of them forcing you to use a certain throw to get it to the hole. I do feel that some of these were a little iffy, but for the most part they were all descently designed.
Some of the holes had two routes to get to the basket, I can think of one where there's a backhand line that's not really good, and there's a forehand line that's amazing.
Right on the way to blue ribbon pines from the twin cities.
Cons: There was no real length to any of the throws, except for one that you couldn't really get to because there were trees in the way. Mostly putter was used.
When we were there, it was a nice day early in April, and there were huge amounts of people here, all moving really slow. I'm not sure if this is the norm, but if it is, it is for sure a con.
Location is a big deal, it is a long ways away from anything. The only time I can really see it being played is by locals or by people who are making the trek to blue ribbon pines.
Other Thoughts: unlike most people, I dont really pay attention to if courses have signs, trash cans, bathrooms etc. I only really care how the course is set up. And if theres a lot of trash laying around, I'll tend to rate it lower, otherwise I don't really care. I have no bag, I go to the bathroom at home, I don't use trash, signs screw with my head.
