Pros: The course is set on a beautiful piece of land in what seems like the middle of nowhere. Awesome views and peace and quiet throughout the course. Mach 5 baskets on the first nine, discatchers on the back. All were in good shape and caught fine. Concrete tees on some holes on the front nine though not all. These were nice. Natural pads on the rest. There are quite a few really cool holes here. Hole 18 is probably the best being a great long downhill bomb over the creek which I landed right in the middle of. There's a ton of water in play here and plenty of elevation. The course is private and not near much so it shouldn't ever be busy.
Cons: A little tricky to figure out the flow for the back nine. Not too hard, but not the easiest either. A number of holes are rather bland and wide open. A few of the natural tees are in pretty rough shape. It would be nice if there was a bridge not just slippery rocks to get to the back nine. Pay to play, but it is private and a ton of work was put into this place. Just worth noting. The bugs could probably be bad in the summer with the creek though there's nothing the owners can do about this.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely a very fun course. I'd recommend giving this a spin if you're in the area. The owners are real solid people and Joe will give you a tour to show you around for first time players which is awesome.

Pros: -unique and secluded course in a beautiful valley with lots of water in play.
-well maintained course with friendly owners.
-nice variety of shot selection, including a few holes with nontraditional layouts.
Cons: -susceptible to flooding
-the back 9 plays slightly fieldish although the shots are still challenging and have a variety of elevation changes.
Other Thoughts: -course is somewhat under construction, the owners take input from local golfers and try to improve course!
- I live in la crosse and would much rather drive to play this course than pettibone park.

Pros: Front 9
-Excellent long warm up hole to get loose.
-Beautiful tee pads and high quality baskets.
-Perfectly mowed fairways and greens.
-Great use of water hazards.
-Accessible rough.
-Good mix of open field shots with interesting putting greens and well placed pin locations.
-Good mix of wooded technical shots with fair putting greens and surfaces.
-Well defined lines and double options on the wooded holes.

Back 9
-Huge elevation changes and great use of water hazards.
-Technical putting greens with high risk/reward.
-Perfectly mowed fairways and greens.
-Excellent signature hole 17 and 18.
-High quality baskets.
-Good variety of shot selection.
-Absolutely huge air shots.
Cons: Front 9
-A bit muddy on hole 2 putting green until the grass grows in.
-Some putting green (10 meter) clearing on wooded holes would be appreciated.
-Hole 9 is in temporary location until clearing is complete.
-Missing 2 concrete tee pads on hole 5 and 9. Though not problematic, aesthetically not 5 star.

Back 9
-Under construction but definitely playable and mowed extremely well.
-Firm gravel tee pads rather than the beautiful concrete ones on the front. Still very comfortable to throw from, but again, aesthetically not 5 star.
-Cool rock bridge can be tough to navigate in the rain.
-11s pin is near 12s tee. Difficult to run a tournament at current tee location.
-Hole 16 is under construction still and requires a bit of maintenance. Would love to see it go up the hill and play as a placement par 4 in my humble opinion.
-Hole 16 still muddy for the time being.
-Hole 17 has a grass teepad at the moment.
-Sure, there are a lot of field shots, but the huge trees, incredible elevation change, and the well designed pin locations keep it from feeling like a field course.
-Amateurs may consider the back 9 too "field like".
Other Thoughts: I listed a lot of cons not because this is a poor course, but because it isn't a 5 star course yet. They are simply suggestions from a very critical individual.

The listed cons are slight and should not dissuade anybody from playing this course or bringing their family out for the day.

Camping is within a mile which makes access easy if you are traveling.

This is one of the best courses in the area. The care that goes into this course is absolutely top notch!!! The course is constantly evolving and changing as Joe and his wife work hard, every day, to maintain the perfect fairways and greens while also pushing the envelope of inventive course design.

Having a clubhouse on site and access to golf carts makes this a great experience.

Ball Golf, Mini Golf, and Foot Golf make it fun for the entire family.

The price to golf is extremely affordable and food and drinks are available at very fair prices.

When the course is complete, it will likely be a 4.5 to 5 star course.

Pros: The front 9 holes has concrete tee pads and a variety of holes that offer length and technical work.

The owners are wonderful people and are proud of their course.

Ask for a tour of the course in the golf cart with no brakes best ride you had in a while.
Cons: The back 9 has gravel tee pads but according to owner that will be changing soon.
Other Thoughts: The course is in a beautiful valley and can be extra challenging in the wind. good use of elevation changes. The clubhouse sells cheap beers for your round.

Pros: * Sits on a BEAUTIFUL piece of property
* Nice and consistent tee pads
* Great variety of lengths and hazards (also see negatives)
* Super friendly and helpful people running this private facility
* Great baskets
* Some very interesting shots involved on later holes
* Non-disc golf note: Awesome 18-hole natural grass miniature golf course on site!
* Some holes require a strong arm, but... (see cons)
* Hole 6 is great!
* Course is very secluded
Cons: * Some very short, wide open (putter) holes included
* Water/marsh land can be an annoyance on a couple of holes (I love water hazards as much as the next person, but hole 8 can be kind of ridiculous, unless you have a huge arm, or simply lay up).
* Inconsistent layout (can be a pro or a con, I suppose)
* Lack of wooded holes, as most (1,2,3,4,5) are wide open with few shot-shaping obstacles. Obviously formed out of a ball golf mind-set
* Hole 9 is a ridiculous 215+ degree dogleg. Quite simply an impossible (un-disc-golf-like) tee shot
* Course resides in the middle of nowhere...
Other Thoughts: While playing this unique course it became fairly obvious the course designer was not too familiar with disc golf. This is certainly not your average disc golf course design, which is sometimes positive, but at other times annoying. The land owner is doing a great job of landscaping the area (a lot of the land is still under construction). There is talk of the inception of a second 18-hole course. This land has GREAT potential. My only hope is that a great course designer will be involved in the conception of the next course; and that most of the holes will take advantage of the woods and elevation that surround the area.
