Pros: Beautful course with great mix of elevation, technicality and distance. A nice 'get away' course that plays thoughout a well kept County park. The course is well thought out, in design, and uses the park very well.
Cons: Dirt tee pads, no signage and single chain baskets. Although I don't ever mind natural tee pads, especially in a Co/State/National park, the baskets are comented down, so, since there is already the use of cement on the course, I would have much rather seen it used for the pads, than to hold the baskets down. Hard to navigate and a couple of the tee pads are hard to locate.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed playing this course and would certainly go back. For a 9 Hole, it feels alot longer because of the scenic hiking that you encounter while playing the course. Beautiful course that provides a unique mix of woods, dog legs, wide open 'bomber' shots (5, 7 & 9) and elevation change that you rarely see on a 9 holer. This course really seems to bring out the heart of SW Minnesota, in that it mixes woods, open space and a large hill together which catches the essence of the area in a unique way. The large hill that you shoot down on Holes 3 & 4 really shows what I'm trying to get across here. For fun I recommend throwing a safari hole from Hole 2's basket to Basket 5. It plays from the top of the hill down to the bottom. I would have liked to see this implented into the course, as it would easily be the signature hole, but it still plays as a fun safari. It's a new course so it still needs some upgrades. Throw in some signage and a scorecard and this one could be a 4. Check out the online course map on this one, though, because it can be hard to navigate your first time here. If you don't have a good 'disc' dog to sniff out your discs, I'd recommend having a spotter or keep a keen eye on your disc because, although the fairways are well kept, if you go off the fairway into the rough, it gets real knarly real quick. . If you are in the Marshall area or traveling along HWY 23 or 59 this one is certainly worth the stop. Upper Plum Creek (15 miles away) is another great 9 hole to make a day out of it. Overall great course that has potential to be even better.
