Pros: Nice layout, with elevation changes, some trees, distance and OB concrete.
Maps on all the holes
Challenging nine hole course
Cons: Wood ticks are insane here
Natural tee-pads, almost non-existent
Really thick brush and briar patches in some spots
Layout gets a little confusing, with a long walk from #3 to #4 and some back-tracking from #6 to #7
Other Thoughts: This is a fun and challenging nine hole course. There are some fairly long holes at about 450 ft, and lots of hazards with the thick brush. Hole #3 is a hole that has some of the worse briar patches, leave your disc short or to the right or you'll end with some cut up legs and/or a lost disc. There is some really thick brush and and the briar patches and thorns are bad in some spots, and the wood ticks are abundant.
There is a nice variety of holes and obstacles on this course, especially for just a nine hole. Overall, it's a fun course and has a decent replay value.

 Coming along nicely

Pros: This schoolyard nine will keep you interested if you decide to make the tiny jaunt off the highway into Spooner. A pretty setting for refreshingly long holes (though the tee sign measurements seemed to overstate the length, and some played downhill). Elevation is used in subtle and not-so-subtle ways to add challenge. Hole 5 is a signature hole: drive across a dip and some OB paths, onto a sort of ridge with trees and downward slopes on either side, then approach up to a protected pin, over 400 feet in all. Signage is already great, with room for more navigational hints to be added. I commend the course creators for negotiating coexistence for DG and what look like cross-country skiing/hiking/running trails.
Cons: The tees are truly natural! There are tee signs with no indication of a flat pad from which to throw. Most holes have very few tree obstacles, but wind, elevation, and some vegetation near the baskets help. Holes 1-3 were monotonous, being of similar length and traversing a wide-open path up the same slight incline.
Other Thoughts: I played this course in some shallow midwinter snow, but the terrain looks rugged enough to grow disc-eating rough in the summer. I gather that there are improvements and additions coming soon, hence the title of my review. The walk from basket 3 to tee 4 is longer than you think! Follow the left arrow sign straight all the way to a T with another walking path, then turn left for 100 feet or so and look for the tee up the hill to your right. After holing out on 6, you will be tempted to approach tee 9, but instead backtrack across the paved walking path to tee 7.
