Pros: With numbered sign posts and 24 chain DGA baskets, the level, park-wooded nine hole course in Sherwood is nestled in a quiet corner of a very small town. Unless there is something going on at the little auditorium beside the first few holes, you'll likely not even have a car in view. The disc golf play is reasonable for casual to Recreational players, with little chance of losing a disc except possibly on holes 7 and 9. You'll find ace runs and a little opportunity to shape your line, especially on holes 7 & 8.
Cons: The first hole plays too close to the corner of the building (and its last window). The level terrain means that water pools behind the 3rd basket and the ground can get soggy (and the third fairway plays over a bench, picnic table, and the flagpole sidewalk). The entire fairway for hole 4 is now a gravel parking area. And there is no direct line of flight on hole 7. It practically requires a lefty boomerang shot to get in close off the tee, because of the thick woods on your right. Finally, overshooting hole 9 in the summer will get you into some prickly weedage.
Other Thoughts: First timers may want to bring the map, but please note that hole 9 has been altered since the map was drawn up. It is now shorter, plays to the right of the third basket, and no longer crosses the fairways on 3 & 4. Overall, Sherwood is a decent course for locals, or if you happen to be in the area, looking for a shaded opportunity to loosen up, but not one to go too far out of your way to play. The natural tees are not even much worn in, suggesting it gets minimal play.

Pros: can be played quickly for those times when u have to hurry.not alot of foot traffic so its very peaceful.lots of shade and good local huk'ers.great course for beginners to learn on.
Cons: short...nothin really over 300'.only one hole is a real challenge due to an extreme dog leg.Parking is minimal so when there is archery goin on at the building its pretty much game over.
Other Thoughts: local club is called PDF..and they are all super awesome including myself..this course is better than most of the local 9 hole courses so i give it an extra half a star..

Pros: There are some mature trees throughout the course which make some of the holes interesting. The course makes good use of a small area.
Cons: Many holes are just too short, and not much of a challenge. Hole 7 was the only hole I had to think about how I was going to play it, since the basket was not in direct view. That was not fun. There are some gravel drives where cars can go through the park that have to be considered. I usually put a nick in a disc from hitting the gravel in between holes. There could be issues with cars parked between the tees and baskets on a busy day. On hole 1, I came pretty close to the building, and fortunately my driver broke to the left and avoided the roof. There was some wet spots with standing water and ice. I slipped on one of the grass tees that had an icy patch. Fortunately, since the hole was easy, I recovered from the poor drive.
Other Thoughts: This is a small course, but it makes pretty good use of what is available. It is nice to have a place to go play whenever I am in the area. The grass tee areas were not worn and do not appear to have had a lot of use. It rained recently, and a lot of water had frozen in spots. Although it is not as challenging as a lot of other courses, it makes for a decent practice course, and a good place to learn to play where few courses can be found.

Pros: The course plays through a small, flat area with mature trees and a little bit of brushy rough around the edges of the course. A few holes bring the brush into play, making for a little bit of risk/reward. Most of the holes use the trees available creatively to make some interesting holes. For such a small area, the design doesn't cross over itself and doesn't have any major conflicts between holes. The baskets are in good shape and catch well, they seemed to be pretty new. The tees are natural, but were in good shape and not rutted out yet. There are markers for all tees with hole number, and it's easy to figure out where to throw and where to walk. There is a course map posted, though it's not all that difficult a layout to figure out.
Cons: The course is short and very straightforward. It doesn't offer any real challenges, the lines are generous and easy to hit, and there isn't enough distance to add any challenge. There is hardly any punishment for bad shots on the majority of the holes. The tees are natural, and are only in good shape due to the lack of traffic, they were starting to wear and will end up pretty bad if they're not taken care of. The course plays across a gravel road and a gravel path, it can chew up your discs pretty good. The last hole plays across the parking lot, parking is short as it is and you don't want to park in that area if you value your windows.
Other Thoughts: This is a great beginner course, with reasonable distances and not much punishment for inaccurate shots. There are enough trees to make a new player try some different lines, but not enough to make it frustrating. More experienced throwers will find the course very easy and straightforward, without enough challenge or variety to make it worth multiple trips. It's not a bad quick stop if you're in the area, but definitely don't go out of your way for this one.

Pros: Not very busy ,fun if you play paths o.b ,lots of ace runs ,easy and will boost your ego
Cons: short,overlapping tees and odd basket placements,overall design is underwhelming and lacks shot creativity 7 was the only hole that made you think how i'm i going to do this .
Other Thoughts: when you play here play everything by threes and the paths o.b even then i shot 8 under my first round there way to easy but for what the course is and the small amount of land it works

Pros: Very Small and Tight Course, gives a different setup than most courses, definitely a fun course to go through a bunch of times as it doesn't take long to go through. Park is well kept with available trash cans and decent parking. Scorecards are also available in the small bell tower thing out front.
Cons: A bit too easy, based on the par setup. Played through 3 times and had 6 eagles on the 4th and 9th holes (both par 5s). Shot an average of -6 on the 3 rounds, but did have some fun navigating through some of the holes. Hole 7 is an almost impossible 90 degree right turn over a bush, and hole 8 is a very difficult par 2 through a bunch of trees.
Other Thoughts: Really fun once in a while.

Pros: This course is one of those hidden gems right smack dab in the middle of where a discgolf course needs to be. Varying distance throws with some deceivingly short shots with trees all over. Bathroom on sight and scorecards. Rarely are people an issue on this course. Nice flow to each hole and a decent use of the little space utilized for this course.
Cons: Soggy in places. Watch out for soggy conditions at pin 3 and pin 9. Lack of wastebaskets is kind of a downer. It's a young course so there are no tee signs or boxes but at least they're marked. Watch the building on hole 1 as it's easy to lose a disc on the roof or break a window. Parking is a little lacking. Make sure your not parked between the tee and pin on 9.
Other Thoughts: It seems like the locals here are really cool and it would be neat to see this course really take off and get another 9. Problem is with such a small town sponsors may be lacking.

Pros: The park is set back in an old spiritualist camp away from the main street. The course is small but other factors can be brought in to up the difficulty.( gravel drive, woods) Every hole is obscured in some way or form by trees, so big arm throws are limited. I like to think of it as a control course !! Baskets are new as the course is less than a year old. A map has been placed in the west window to map out the course, and score cards provided in the old bell tower. No time limit at this park so playing at night is an option. Park is clean and well maintained with a Port-a-jon on sight.
Cons: It is a small course with the longest hole measuring 302 ft. The ground is flat with 8 out of 9 baskets visible from the their tees. The tee placement for 9 is in an odd spot. The grounds are shared with the Boy Scouts and an archery club so a few time the "entire" course has not playable.
Other Thoughts: The Course is less than a year old, so not to many folks know it is there. The course is a great challenge for novice to beginner players. With some added factors the "big arm" throwers are limited on the open space to let it rip.Look for upcoming tournaments at this park as local interest is beginning to grow.

  Not bad

Pros: There has been absolutely no traffic there and no waits. Its a pretty short course, but there are opportunities for some long shots. Some of the tee placements make the course a little tough and you need a good forehand and backhand. Its kept up pretty well and the gravel paths can make it a little tough on some holes.
Cons: It is a little hard to figure out where to start, because there is no map anywhere... my first time I walked around for a good 10 minutes trying to find the first hole, but once I found 1 it wasn't too bad following to the next holes. Also, I havent seen a person out there yet, which can be good or bad.

Pros: A course in a small town, nice baskets, tee markers, port -a- john on site. some long holes
Cons: no description of hole layout on tee signs, no next tee signs
Other Thoughts: course is on the grounds of a old church or a school. course is very flat. If your using the gravel road as OB, I can see it's challenges. Hope they're using the "EDGE" program in their school system. As more people need to be playing this course.
