Pros: Great mixture of water shots. Long and short holes. Back 9 has a lot of good technical wooded holes. Front 9 is a lot more open and longer. Love the set up.
Cons: Really the things i dont like are the long walk in between hole 10 and 11 and all the paths and things running through it. And how close it was to that play ground on hole 10

 A gem of a course.

Pros: Amenities. A camp ground with rest rooms on site, could be a fun place to camp and play disc golf. Designated parking is limited, but it appears you can park nearly anywhere in the park.

Beautiful. Views of the Winnebago River and a journey through the woods offer some nice scenery. A walk across the swinging bridge provides a great view of the dam and the river.

Tees. Red/White/Blue tees offer a level of challenge for everyone, each hole has nice level concrete tees for each location.

Baskets. Nice Chainstar baskets on every hole. some holes have multiple pin placements as well.

Water. Great use of water on this course, water comes into play on several holes and is a decent threat.

Variety of holes. From wide open grip and rip holes, to straightforward anny/hyzer lines, to technical wooded holes this course will test your accuracy and line shaping ability as well as your distance.

Ace and birdie opportunities. Ace runs are limited, but do exist, some good risk/reward opportunities for a birdie out there, and some of the holes will test your skills to achieve par.

Locating discs. If you keep the disc out of the water, despite being rather wooded - the underbrush is kept relatively clear, most of your time should be spent playing the game, not searching for discs.

Navigation. Each hole is easy to find after the previous hole - if it isn't immediately obvious, there is a small note nearby to describe where to go (After hole 10 cross the swinging bridge to find hole 11).
Cons: Signage. A solid attempt at providing a small map of each hole with distances and pars will not last very long. The laminated sheets of paper are still there on most holes, but are falling off or missing in many places - I'd hope to see something more permanent in the near future.

Tee Maintenance. A small gripe, only as to have something in the "con" section. Though relatively new, the tees are getting over grown in some areas, or are covered in gravel, or goose poop, though not a huge problem at the moment, it could be in the near future.

Parking. I mentioned earlier that you can park just about anywhere, this results in people parking very near some of the holes - Holes 3 and 4 I had to contend with vehicles parked near the basket, this could be a problem on many of the front 9 holes, depending on where fishermen are parking.
Other Thoughts: An Excellent course, well worth the trip if you're in the area.
