 Plenty of fun shots here

Pros: GIANT concrete tee pads (some larger than the patio at my house).

Alternate basket placements.

Course was well kept; an appropriate amount of garbage cans and benches at tees.

Course uses slight elevation changes in park to its advantage. Many holes are under 300 feet but play longer due to elevation.

Good variety of shots (straight, righty, lefty).

All holes are reachable (many ace runs), great use natural lines shaped through large old trees.
Cons: Course has tee signs with distances, but no diagram of the hole itself. The front half of the course has many baskets and tees in view so knowing exactly where to throw might be a touch confusing for first timers.

Lots of bugs at the course, and I played around noon. I'm not from the area, so that may just be normal around these parts.

Many of the tees are near the basket from the previous hole. Lots of casual golfers (good thing), so watch out for errant shots that might come in at you from various angles.
Other Thoughts: Overall I had a great time at this course. The old trees shape lines throughout the course and pretty much every hole is reachable. The alternate pin placements looked like they aren't simply 10 feet away from the original placements. It's definitely a fun course to hit up if you're in the area.

Hole 12 will make you want to empty your entire bag, killer view of the park and a sweet golf hole.

Pros: Has great mix of open wooded long and short nice baskets
Grounds kept very clean
Bathrooms on site along with vending machines
Teepads nice and in great shape
Overall a solid fun course
Cons: My biggest concern is some of the crowd that plays here.
You'd think you were playing in the yard at the county jail at times
Other Thoughts: Worth a stop love changing it up and playing here

Pros: Great concrete tees and decent signage. There a couple cool holes like 7, 12, and 16. 7 is a nice downhill 400 footer. 12 tees off very high and you must keep your drive from hyzering out ob to have a look a birdie. If you have a big arm you may want to throw a fairway driver on this hole. 16 is a tough birdie to get as you must first navigate through a tightish gap and then glide way right slightly uphill. There a couple tighter wooded holes here but not very many.
Cons: The lines here are not challenging at all. The sparse large trees just are not enough to force any lines. You can basically throw the same shot over and over on most of the holes. The course is also rather short and there is not many opportunities to throw drivers.

I was a bit confused on where to go next after the big downhill hole. Go to the hole on the right not the left after the downhill hole.
Other Thoughts: They did what they could with the land I suppose.

 A good players course

Pros: Nice variety in shots, big oak tree canopy, and fairly well maintained. There's a really cool fence with a gate next to the courses wooded holes, with a creepy state mental ward nearby.

The shots vary but most hover around 300 feet in length, nothing too terribly technical but some shots are definitely challenging. Overall the balance of the course is player friendly and a great course for a casual round with friends. The longest hole is off the top of the hill on #12, which you can really open up on, otherwise most of the course can be played with fairway driver or a midrange
Cons: Can get congested in the beginning of the course, but seems to open up well once you're beyond the first few holes. Some holes are close to the park road and have the potential for you to hit cars, so be careful. There are some erosion problems where the ground is bare dirt, so plan on getting your discs a little dusty. Also, although course is balanced, it's not as technical as some may desire.

The large amount of oak leaves on the ground in fall can make your disc vanish when it lands, keep an eye out.

Pros: For the beginner, this would be a nice course.
Some of the tee-pads are REALLY nice.
The river is pretty.
Holes 10 and 11 are very nice.
Cons: Quite short for anyone above intermediate.
Some tee-pads are REALLY close to fairways on other holes.
Some tee-pads are noticeably shorter than the others.
Some of the baskets are really low. It's odd.
Other Thoughts: It's not that this is an awful course, it's just not a 3.5. I was actually a bit dissapointed when I drove down to play it, expecting something more from the ratings it had already received.

If you're down there already, play it. But don't travel very far to get there.

Pros: The course is located in a very nice well kept park. Tee #1 is right next to the restroom and parking area. The park is scattered with large trees and slow rolling terrain. Some thicker rough lines the north side of the park.

Excellent concrete tee pads. They are plenty spacious and level!

The majority of the baskets have been updgraded to brand new Discraft Chainstars.

Tee signs on every hole. There were many with brand new print outs of the hole information.

This course was very easy to navigate. The only spot we missed was the transition from 12 to 13. We went to hole 15 on accident.

Hole #12 is super fun! Large hill with the basket out about 450 to 500ft. Road to the left out of bounds. Let rrrr Rip!

This is a great beginner course as there are very few places to lose a disc. It's a nice walk in the park.
Cons: The course is pretty basic in terms of see the basket and throw to it. Most had basic pick your route lines.

This course is fairly short considering it's 5,400 feet and pretty open. There are no real tunnel type holes.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is an enjoyable course. It's a good option to play if you are traveling between Madison, Milwaukee, & Rockford.

Pros: - Course is set in a hilly park with a ton of trees. There are some pavilions and such around, so interference from other park users is definitely possible. Some holes also play next to the road.
- Large majority of the holes are set amongst a ton of trees, which take away a lot of lines from the tee. For the most part, there are obvious lines to take to the basket. A pretty good mix of lines, there are a bunch of obvious hyzers and anhyzers, and a few where you have a choice of two wider lanes. There are some relatively open ones, and some that are quite tight.
- A couple holes are in tighter woods, where there is rough/jail off the fairway. These are pretty tight as well; well suited to a straightish RHFH shot. There are also some big downhill shots to complement these, wide open and pretty sloped.
- Constant elevation changes on this hole, there is very little flat ground. Great variety, with some tougher and easier ups and downs. Some sloping fairways as well, and some sloped greens near the end. Good variety in hole length too.
- Good signs, some giant teepads, navigation is pretty simple (#13 is past #15). Baskets are a little odd, with no top ring, but they catch fine (even allow some DROT through).
Cons: - The terrain here is fairly consistent, what you see is what you get. There is no water here, and very little rough as well. A poor drive doesn't necessarily mean a poor score here. It can also get a little repetetive, though the lines aren't all the same, the look is.
- Layout is a little funky, there are some places where fairways are close, and one teepad is directly in another fairway. Definitely have to keep an eye out in spots.
Other Thoughts: - A fun course that isn't too challenging, it's well suited to almost everybody. More experienced players will probably be able to skate through without any issues, but still have a good time.

 Old school

Pros: The course is an old school par three design winding through mature oak trees. The majority of the holes require hitting a line through the mature trees with some minor elevation and little to no underbrush. Most shots give you options on which line to take, though a couple holes are tighter and make you hit a specific line to get the deuce.

There are a couple of longer holes that many players will pull out a fairway or distance driver on, otherwise it's a pretty short track with some minor distance variations. The concrete tees are large and in nice shape. The signs are plenty descriptive and the flow of the course is easy to follow. The homemade baskets catch fine and the park is nicely kept.
Cons: With large spaces between the mature trees and no underbrush, a hyzer line is available on nearly every hole and there just isn't much punishment for missing your line. There aren't really any holes here where it's difficult to recover for par even with an early tree hit. Because a lot of the holes are relatively short, it feels a bit repetitive at times.

Many holes play near one another, including several where the next tee is in play. This could cause some safety issues on a busy day, make sure to keep an eye out for errant discs. The baskets catch fine but have lots of sharp ends sticking out that can take chunks out of your putters.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for newer players to start learning to shape different lines. There are enough trees that you have to be a little creative, but not a ton of distance or rough. More experienced players will definitely have a chance at birdie on nearly all the holes here, and there aren't many that threaten a bogey if you screw up.

Pros: Just a beautiful course. I love playing through the oaks and ravine. A lot of variety with elevation and hole lengths. It's a great intermediate player course and keeps the experienced player just loose enough.
Cons: Gets pretty busy during the summer. If you don't mind the heat you can play in the middle of the day and not have anything to worry about. Some signs are missing.

Pros: lustig is a hilly and woody course. the local club is doing a great job with course maintenance. All Chainstars 2011 winter and some new pin positions and a couple new tee pads plus a staircase on 12 and an elevated pin are coming soon which will really up the fun level and overall safety of the course.its a very clean park and has good signage, which will also be upgraded this season.
And big tee boxes on most holes.
Cons: all new baskets and a local club that helps with maintenance and hole placements
