Pros: -18 holes on a flat park land.
-The first half of the course is mainly wooded while the second half has more open fairway shots.
-Tight fairways and some very protected pin placements.
-Nice signs (although distances are not correct on some due to changes that have occured).
-Asphalt tees
-Dual tees
-Multiple basket placements
-A creek and a marsh/small pond come into play on several holes.
-One hole has you teeing off over a pond and requires an anhyzer to cut back right into the fairway before continuing down a wooded tunnel to the pin.
-Rich Martin course design
-Future improvement efforts in the works for next summer
Cons: -Walking trails are close to the fairways being that this is a multi use park.
-Did not see many trash cans
-Not much elevation if any
-Park looked worn down and in need of maintenence (our guide told us the park was getting revamped for next summer, thanks Tallpaul!!)
-Flooding and standing water in some areas, This will be an issue that gets resolved when the park gets re-landscaped.
-The course is repetitive, most holes feel like the last. You can only do what you can with the land your working with though.
-The course layout is a bit cramped. You have to work with the land you have though.
Other Thoughts: This is an average course, worth a stop if you're in the area. You'll need accuracy to score well here, and it's a good place to work on hitting lines through the trees. Beginners might get frustrated by some of the tight shots, especially when errant shots can end up in thick rough. More experienced players will find some minor challenge here, but it falls short on variety and hole distance.

Pros: The course plays through a flat and fairly heavily wooded park. The course generally doesn't conflict very much with other park uses, and feels very disc golf dedicated. The majority of the holes play either through brushy woods or through dense stands of trees with grassy fairways, with a few more open holes to mix it up a little.

There is some variety of hole shapes and lengths, especially with the multiple tees on many holes. The alternate tees mix up the way the holes play and offer some options in terms of difficulty. The signage is good, with hole layout and distances. The asphalt tees were in pretty good shape, as were the baskets.
Cons: The course is very flat, and gets a bit repetitive over time. There aren't too many holes that fall outside of the same general length, which adds to that feeling. There are a few holes that feel a bit too luck dependent, with a reasonable fairway, but a set of random knockdown trees just outside of putting range. I don't mind tough, but lucky gets a little old when there are so many holes like that on one course.

There are some navigation issues on this course, where it's not at all obvious where to go next. Some next tee signs would make a big difference. Because the course is so flat, it doesn't drain well and gets pretty muddy. This adds to the bug problem, the mosquitoes are pretty brutal here. The asphalt tees don't have the best surface or grip on them, especially with even a little water on them.
Other Thoughts: This is a decent course, definitely worth a stop if you're passing by. You'll need accuracy to score well here, and it's a good place to work on hitting lines through the trees. Beginners might be frustrated by some of the tight shots here, especially when errant shots can end up in thick brush. More experienced players will find some challenge here, but it's a little short on variety.

Pros: Sweet swamp hole when wet..fairly wooded but a couple deep holes to chuck on..Hole 2 on the right is the "pit of dispair" just play a safe hyzer with a putter or midrange or youll be looking for a long stick to fish out the wraith that got away from you!! Winter Frolf is available..creative course layout..great stop on your way from Dredska in Milwaukee to Plaman in Appleton..They are all right off highway 41..
Cons: Has changed alot since i was goin to school in oshkosh..Weather affects the courses difficulty in a big way..Drainage problems after rainfall..
Other Thoughts: There used to be a teepee after the 13th hole which was a great spot for a session..We called the final five holes the "high five" works on a few levels..

Pros: Fun, course overall. Has a little bit of everything but nothing too special. Starts out more open and ends with wooded holes.
Cons: Usually VERY packed, especially with younger high school kids. This can result in lots of people cluttered together, which I am not a fan of at all.
