Fun, if unspectacular...

Pros: 18 hole course located in Winnebago County Park. Pairs up with the Yellow course to offer 36 holes onsite. There is also a pool, dog park, and other amenities.
Concrete tee pads, plenty long and wide. They are all in decent enough shape, as well. One tee per hole.
Mach 3 baskets, all in decent enough shape. They catch decent enough, and are mounted well. One pin position per hole.
Tee signs are really nice here. Basic topography, distance, line, par...everything you could need. They are green color, to match the course...which is nice, as the yellow and green courses mix together a bit over the first few holes. Navigation is pretty intuitive, save for the transfer from hole 4 to 5. Cross the road, go to to the other side of the pond. Yellow course goes one direction, Green the other.
The smattering of trees and obstacles is used pretty well here. While a lot of the course is pretty open, what is available is mostly used when it can be.
Variety of distance is probably the best part of this course. You'll find holes from 199', up to over 400'. It takes a relatively big arm to really tear up this course.
A few holes that have water as obstacles, but not in a "you better hit a 20' landing zone or you'll lose your disc" kind of way. You need to think about the water, and can test yourself with it, but there are bail out areas for those that don't want to.
100% cart friendly.
Cons: The course is pretty much flat all the way around.
As mentioned before, there's a lot of open areas/holes on this course. It's still an interesting enough play, but it's not going to challenge the better players out there. If you can throw 400+, there's a good chance you can destroy this course.
One tee/one pin per hole (outside of a couple holes with alt pin positions). There's definitely the space here for more.
Other Thoughts: While it's not world class disc golf, it's still a fun enough spin. There's just enough obstacles to keep it enjoyable, but not really enough to beat you down. Most players won't have a problem hitting 3's on nearly every hole, but courses like that have their charm.
Probably around a 3.25 type course, but I'm going 3.0 because of the single layout. With some other good options in the area, it's not a destination, but you can definitely do worse than throwing some frisbees here.

Pros: Nice course in a multi use park. Puts several ponds into play. Uses unmowed grass to the sides of the fairway as a rough. Good use of trees. Not many just open shots. I really like that you throw down the sides of, or cut a corner on the ponds instead if just throwing across.
Cons: The rough is really rough. You spend a long time searching for discs there. The two courses run somewhat parallell to each other, which is odd more than a problem, although it could be is the course was crazy busy. The flow from 9, 10, and 11 is awkward.

Fun and long
Pros: Beautiful course with many challenging shots, for me anyway. This course will test your ability to shoot both right and left, as the pins are placed both directions from the tee regularly. It is a bit longer so a good arm is needed but on the green course this is nothing that cannot be done.
Cons: I consider myself to be an average player. Every course i've played at, and its more than I've got listed, I come in at 5-10 under REC par. Then I played here, and though challenging the holes were not especially difficult to shoot. Still with the distances, the tight skill shots on most holes, and the course listed REC par I came in at +7. That is a 17 stroke difference and to me means the average player will be discouraged by seeing that kind of score. On the yellow course at this place there is a hole over 600ft with a water hazard that is a par 3. Most rec players I know don't throw much over 200-250ft, meaning there is absolutely no way they could even hope to finish that hole in par unless they hit a lucky 200ft shot. There are many holes on this course over 400ft with tight shots to make to stay on target, which on most every course I've played before would be listed as a par 5, here it is listed as a par 3 sometimes a par 4. Par 4 is acceptable but 3 will discourage newer players.
That and a few of the walks between holes being longer and somewhat unsure of location, first time playing obviously it'll be easier when we go again, are the only negatives I took away from this otherwise beautiful course.
Other Thoughts: Will be, and have been, back again and again to make it a regular course.

The better of the 2 courses here
Pros: This course plays through a very large, multi use park in Oshkosh. The course was very well maintained when we were there. They have nice large, level tee pads on every hole. The signs were awesome here also. They showed a basic hole diagram, hole #, distances and par, any OB on that hole, and even a direction to the next tee. these are color coded either green or yellow for the 2 different courses in the park. The baskets are Mach 3's that were all in great shape and caught awesome. these baskets also had the hole # with an arrow to the next tee on them which is awesome combined with the next tee diagrams on each sign. This made navigation here fairly easy. There are a good mix of different lengths on this course. Some play through the more open parts of the park with others playing through some prairie and wooded areas as well. This provides a good mixture of hole types. Water comes into play on a few holes. This will vary depending on how much rain there was recently. The course was not busy at all when we went either. There was one other group we encountered on the 2 18 hole courses combined. Also both courses start and end near the first tees for each which is always nice. There are not too many trees to contend with but enough to keep it fairly interesting. Wind will probably be the main factor in scoring well here.
Cons: There are a few longer walks between holes but this isn't too much of a problem with the awesome signage and directional. The prairie grass can really eat up discs. It's not as much of a problem here as it is on the yellow course. A few of the holes come pretty close to other fairways and roads through the park.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty decent course but nothing overly amazing. Out of the 2 courses here this is the better of the 2 in my opinion. This is a definitely worth a stop if you're nearby with there being 2 separate 18 hole courses here. They redesigned it in 2013 and did a good job using the available land. Also like I said for the yellow course. Be very careful if you use the green on the green. I found a Ziploc bag IN the basket for hole 1. IN THE BASKET. Then I saw 2 very casually dressed guys in the parking lot after all 36 holes who looked like if I had to guess their occupation would say were police officers. They pulled it off perfectly with the exception of looking like oinkers. Be careful here.

Green is GREAT
Pros: Nice mix of shorter shots and big bombs.
Love how the tall grass shapes the fairways.
Good use of water and what few trees the course has.
Open year round.
Cons: Not many trees.
Tall grass can be difficult sometimes.
Other Thoughts: This course is awesome. I've been playing County park since it was just 15 baskets. Love how far it has come - now it's 36.
I like the Green course a bit better than Yellow.
Course is located seconds off of HWY 41. If you're headed north and want to drive a car instead of a disc, stop and play County - a nice course in a nice park
