Pros: Lincoln Drive Park is beautifully maintained, and has disc golf galore. The regular course is an 18 hole layout, and is easy to follow. Play is quick and easy, with every hole a par 3, and no serious rough or water hazards to hide discs.

The concrete tees are nice, and the tee signs are pretty good quality. The baskets are holding up nicely. Front and back 9 converge near the parking lot if you want to break it up and only play half the course.

There are enough mature trees to break up the most direct lines from tee to pin, while still leaving lots of airspace to get it there. Elevation is not totally absent, but rare. Hole 1 is a bit downhill, and 9 comes back up the hill.
Cons: I like a little more in the way of woods and elevation changes, but beggars can't be choosers. Would certainly play this one often if I lived in Grand Forks.

Benches here and there could be a nice add. A course map would be nice too, but not a must. I nearly went from hole 7 to 12, I think. The signs have the next tee pointed out, so pay attention.
Other Thoughts: The Regular at Lincoln Drive Course is nice, and a great warm up to play the Loop. I only hit one birdie, and finished at +3 (57). Not a super difficult course, and with a few reps and some luck, could easily be under par. Missed some easy putts, and had a few shots carry with the wind.

A great place for a disc golfer to spend some time. If you are nearby, give it a shot. My favorite hole was 9, a good hyzer drive for a RHBH player. The basket is protected in the middle of a stand of small trees on the side of a hill.

 Lincoln Park Regular

Pros: Very well signed. Each sign shows the location of the basket as well as the location of the next tee. Each hole has a concrete tee pad as well as a second, shorter, grass tee marked with a sign. There are a good variety of shot types and the many trees make it fairly challenging but the lack of underbrush makes it hard to lose a disc. The course is very easy to find just like the other course here at Lincoln Park. Having two courses at the same location is nice if you want to play more than 18 holes.
Cons: It was pretty busy when I played here but I never felt rushed. Definitely the busiest course in the Grand Forks area though. The course is very short with not much variety in the hole length. There are a couple longer holes which is nice but they are still par 3s just like every other hole. It just felt a little repetitive. Some holes are a little too short even and are easily made in two shots. There is minimal elevation change but that's to be expected in Grand Forks.
Other Thoughts: Flat course with short holes. Still probably the best course in Grand Forks however and it is much better signed and laid out than some of the other courses.

Pros: - Located in nice, clean park with clean, modern facilities like pavilions and restrooms across the street from hole 1.
- The many mature trees add obstacles and great scenic value
- In an otherwise flat state, this park has a small amount of elevation change which adds to its attraction.
- Tees are rectangular concrete and well sized
- Baskets are well maintained, though the older nickel style
- Since this course is used a lot, the grass around the baskets doesn't grow so bark/mulch has been spread around the base of tees and tee pads which alleviates mud problems in wet weather.
- Course is very easy to follow as the signs show you where the basket is located and where the next tee is. Also, the next tee pad is easy to spot from the basket.
- Garbage cans at most tees
- Alternate tees without concrete are located 20 or so feet from the concrete main tee pad and designated by a 4x4 post with painted sign on it.
- Tee pads are aligned toward baskets to aid in spotting baskets
Cons: - Some of the signs are wearing and some of the info on them is no longer visible.
- The old baskets are not painted. They're chain gray and were a little harder to spot on an overcast evening.
Other Thoughts: Another 18 holes course, Lincoln Drive Park - The Loops starts next to the basket of hole 18 of this course. Very convenient.
- Course is easy to find. Upon entering the park from Lincoln Drive, turn left into the parking lot on the left and park near the restroom. Hole 1 is across the street.

  Pleasurable Challenge

Pros: Clean, well maintained, cement tees, mixed challenges involving *some* elevation, trees, and open-to-wind channels.

Baskets and chains are in good shape.

Garbage cans at most (if not all) tees.

Benches scattered throughout.

Wildlife in the area is active.

Diverse tree population and most are quite old. Creates a nice mix of scenery and change in obstacles.

Mulch is placed around basket and tees.

Women's tees available (not cement).

The history of that area (1997 flood) can be found hidden in the ground with random pieces of old house foundations barely visible in the dirt, old drainage areas, etc.
Cons: The basket locator 'dot' could use a repaint.

Informative tee posts telling you about the distance and location of the basket could be updated. (Some numbers have been scratched off)

Other Thoughts: For the Grand Forks area, nothing beats this course. Eighteen great and memorable holes (1, 13 and 15 are my favorite!). If the tee signage was fixed and the baskets were repainted, I would have scored this a 4.5.

 Great course.

Pros: Excellent course, concrete tees, and good if not "new" baskets. A great mix of shots. Very good use of terrain, trees , and even a little elevation. The holes offer enough challenge for better players without anything to scare away beginners.
Cons: Mostly flat, no hazards and no rough. There was no course map either online or on site, this wasn't that much of a problem because of a great layout and all the people playing so i had someone to follow.

 Well Maintained Course

Pros: -Teepads - Large, smooth concrete pads
-Signage - Well placed signs informing of length and location of next tee
-Use of Terrain - Use of trees and slight elevation changes was well utilized throughout
-Short walks between holes - Course flows well and plays quickly
-Accessibility - Easy to find from the interstate, with plenty of parking and park amenities nearby
Cons: -Baskets - Some baskets were in poor condition, and the grey color was hard to see from a distance
-Lack of variety - Hardly any left-to-right shots were required, making most holes seem kind of the same
-Mosquitos - the day I played, the mosquitos were out in full force, and there were clouds of them under the trees
Other Thoughts: All in all, a great course to play if you are within a short distance or driving through. A fun course to play inside a well-maintained park, and some challenges abound. A good course for all skill levels.

 Good Intermediate Course

Pros: - Very nice cement tees and accurate signs
- Well kept course, the entire park is mowed and it's impossible to lose a disc
- Some elevation and enough trees to add some challenge
- A variety of hole layouts, some you can open up on and others require a bit more finesse
Cons: Not much for cons on this course, I guess if you were seeking a course with a lot of elevation and hazards then this isn't the course for you, but no course in Grand Forks has these things so you would be in the wrong area.
Other Thoughts: Fun, easy to play course that can be played quickly if need be. I would recommend swinging by and playing this course first if you're in the area.

 Fun Course

Pros: Course is very clean, regular trash cans are present. The fairways were all mowed nicely. Generally the course is well-kept 9/10

It's pretty easy to navigate. The walks from pin to pad are some of the shortest I've ever played, which makes the course pretty natural to navigate. The signage is passable and footage is marked.

Great use has been made of almost every cluster of trees - prepare for many early windows and narrow gaps. This lends itself to some interesting risk/reward decisions.

Baskets are in fair shape. If I remember correctly, though, a few could use a little minor repair (some baskets were a bit bent, but not broken)

All concrete pads as I remember. All were in nice shape. A+ here

Pretty decent mix of shot length, though there were VERY few short holes. There was little terrain to warrant a short technical type of shot.
Cons: Little elevation play, though it's hard to hold that against a course in Grand Forks.

The course gets a little monotonous at times. While each hole is unique and plays well in itself, the course really blends together. Most holes seem to play a middle-to-long accurate drive through one of several openings.
Other Thoughts: The course plays very quickly, since there's almost no time spent looking for discs usually. With few punishing traps, you can relax a bit and play a pretty casual game.

Overall the course is a great time; definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

Other Thoughts: this was the first course i played on and it was a good one. i moved from Grand Forks a long time ago, but i will never forget this course.
