very interesting hs course
Pros: Nice property with hills and all kinds of obstacles for play.
Many baskets tucked into the woods (Innova baskets).
Possible upshots over high obstacles.
The course plays around a very nice athletic fields complex.
An unused wooded section borders the course proper and could potentially add some very nice disc opportunities in the future?
Cons: Flags in pictures were nowhere to be found. We played from basket to basket; with the exception of #1, which was played from home plate of ball diamond to basket; #3 which was played to the right of basket, and #10?; where you finish near the center field opening in fence. On that one we went into field and played full length of baseball field. Bucket is behind home plate fence. We played this one as being the only non o.b. field.
If the fields are as much in play on the "real" course as they were in our play; there is a very good chance you'll be in one; especially if it's windy, as it was when we were there. Some of these fields require you to walk almost the full length of the diamond to enter by the dug outs; or risk climbing an eight foot tall fence.
I was o.b. in the parking lot on the last hole as we played it. No cars this day; but I imagine they could be there. Probably not when you're supposed to be playing during non school hours; so, not sure if this is an issue or not.
Other Thoughts: I am positive that this is not the intended layout. However, we had to make the best of the situation. Playing basket to basket makes this a fairly long course; I would bet that @ 6,000 ft. There is at least one hole with no fairway, when played this way; it is the shortest (#5?), but you gotta go straight through the woods (or tomahawk over the top) to get there.
Playing the course this way, means many ball fields and one parking lot, are very much in play and provide very interesting risk/reward opportunities. (I believe that many of these fields are still in play on the "real" course...)
How far down are you going to challenge that baseball fence? Do you simply play a rhbh heiser and take fence out of play? etc...
My playing partner and I each had two o.b.s during the round.
This one reminds me of Homestead High School in Mequon. Both of these are on nice pieces of land; bordered by even nicer pieces of land. However, they are unmarked and require your own invention in regards to play. However, both are nice long courses when played from basket to basket; and have potential to be 3 rated. There just seems to be no one that is heavily disc golf interested at the schools; or, they don't want to encourage non school play?
