Flat, Open, Well Maintained, Peaceful 18 Holes

Pros: There is a map near hole one of the entire course.

All holes have a tee sign with map and distance, concrete tee pad, and well maintained baskets.

Holes range from 130ft - 280 ft.

Perfect for advanced players to work on approach game or ace chasing, great fun for new players (you will NOT lose a disc here).

Peaceful, parking everywhere, just a well maintained nice flat park. LARGE park too!
Cons: A peaceful round, not a challenging round.

If you didn't take a picture of the initial 18 hole map then you might get turned around.

A lot of back and forth, similar shot hole after hole. Peaceful, not exciting.
Other Thoughts: There is a map near hole one of the entire course. I recommend taking a picture of it, because it is located across seven city 'blocks' and that way you know what order to hit the blocks in to follow the hole numbers correctly.

Definitely worth the trip, as there were still cool views of the Mississippi (although the water never comes into play).

There were signs posted saying they have an open league there too if that interests anyone.

Pros: -Concrete Tees
-Decent Baskets
-Course flows fine, good map
-Small, but decent signage
-Park upkeep is good, disc golf area mostly to itself
-Quick play (especially for 18)
Cons: -Many of the same shot
-No elevation, few trees for interest
-Park taken over in August for Jamboree (makes all but 1-4 and 17-18 unplayable)
-No benches / trashcans
Other Thoughts: Rotary Club DGC is located in the blocks of the original settlement of Prairie du Chein, WI on St. Feriole Island. The course is a back and forth within 9 blocks of this very flat area. All holes are Par 3 and in the 150 - 275' range. A few tree come into play, but all are pretty straight on shots to the baskets. Each hole has a nicely etched metal tee sign on a tall 4 X 4 post. Park upkeep is good and the pace of play is fast. No holes to really let out a boomer, but the novice will enjoy having good chance to make par. If you are into elevation, variation, complexity - this one is not for you. Look out for the Jamboree (usually in August [cancelled in 2020]) as they take over most of the park. No other courses close make this the one to play, if in the area. the repetitive nature keeps the rating down for me. I still have enjoyed my rounds here and will play again.

Pros: Good signage, good flow... easy to navigate from hole to hole.
Concrete tee pads.
Some use of trees to make accuracy important.
If you want a fast 18, this was it... no hole longer than 275. (see cons)
Cons: Absolutely flat. Only elevation was the man made hill in front of 17 which left only the top of the basket exposed.
Many holes seemed repetitious.
If you want at least a couple holes to bomb it, this wasn't it. (no hole longer than 275)
Other Thoughts: Lot of room.... could go with a second pin placement better utilizing the trees.
All fences mentioned in previous reviews are gone... was easy to get from hole to hole.
Was on road trip trying to add another state to my list. This one took me an hour off my path. Eighteen holes made it worth the trip.

Pros: Aces
Birdies
No losing discs
Quick play
No hiking
Not many bugs
Cons: In the open so if it's hot and sunny you'll be dealing with that.
Dull
Boring
Other Thoughts: This is a course for beginners or intermediate. Anyone with any fair amount of disc golf experience should shoot this course well under par.

  Great for Beginners

Pros: Course is new and appears to be well maintained, concrete tee pads are nice and level, large 6"x6" posts that mark the start of each hole. Course has a nice flow from hole to hole.
Cons: Course is really flat, a lot of the holes are similar, and the holes are not very long. There is also a lot of semi traffic on the roads that run throughout the course.
Other Thoughts: Hole 17 had a hill right in front of the tee that made a nice challenge and added some needed variety to the course.

  Good Start

Pros: Each hole has an easy to read etched metal plaque with the hole details. The holes were well laid out and easy to find the next hole from the previous basket. Good concrete tee pads. A couple of drinking fountains along the way.
Cons: There was a distinct lack of trash cans along the course. We found a can or bottle discarded at nearly every tee. Grass was a little long. There were also wire fences across some of the course which had to be climbed over.
Other Thoughts: This was a fairly easy course and would be great for beginners. As the trees on the course mature some of the holes should become more challenging. When we got there there were cars parked around the building by the first hole and one was right on the first fairway. Hopefully these people will realize that course is there in future and use the parking lot 50 feet across the street.

 better than no course

Pros: Brand new course, great tee pads signs for each hole, not to hard to negotiate, never checked the overall layout board and had no issues finding next hole. But sign there rt by hole 1 if needed.
Cons: All holes are 150'-300'. Baskets are directly in front of each pad. No left to rt or verticle changes on any holes. Missed several birdies by only a foot or two.... lots of farm fence throughout layout nave to cross 2-3 times.
Other Thoughts: Found a mini from the disc golf experience which was very cool! This course is nice for the area but not all that challenging. Great for beginers and its a course to play. But unless i was in prarrie i wouldnt bother to cross the river to play. Will pry stop next yr to see if yard upkeep has gotten better. Only way to make me want to play this is to improve the grass condtions
