Nice challenging course

Pros: I liked the layout of this course. It definitely demanded a little more distance on some holes, yet also required some finesse and control on more wooded shots and guarded greens that would punish an inaccurate or overthrown approach.

Baskets were in good shape (Mach 3's). Multiple baskets and teepads that are marked well (Pay attention to the poker chips on teesigns).

Lots of tees had picnic tables, which are appreciated. Some were spotted with graffiti.

Cons: A few more trash cans would be nice, but the course wasn't littered by trash and cans.
Other Thoughts: Overall great course! Multiple baskets/tees to mix things up, as well as two other courses on site! Great place for a day of golf!

Pros: Probably my favorite course of the three at Anna Page. The mature trees add to the scenery as well as add some challenge to the course as well.
Cons: Would be nice to have baskets marked on the signs to determine which basket is in play like on the east course.
Other Thoughts: Just glad to have a place like this in Rockford. Keep up the great work!

Pros: Beginner friendly course with scattered trees. Some long fairways for those who llke to throw long & straight. New signs were installed last fall for easier navigation. The open fairways are cut close with long grass defining the borders.
Cons: There are some flow issues that need to be addressed. Some poison ivy around the wooded areas.

Pros: Challenging course for beginners, but not punishing. Challenging enough for more experienced players.
Good variety on mildly sloping terrain.
Not heavily wooded, but very good use of the trees and bushes in place. Driving lanes are nicely defined.
Concrete tee pads.
Front 9 is the best consecutive series of holes at the Page. Fair shots for par at each one, advanced players are firing for birdies.
The back 9 has 3 open field air-it-out holes for the big guns.
Equally enjoyable and fair for RHBH and LHBH throwers.
What little elevation is here is put to good use.
Cons: The back 9 is a little less aesthetically pleasing. The open field holes don't have a lot of definition.
The baskets are old, worn out and ugly. They really need something fresh and with a little color.

Other Thoughts: Of all the courses in the Rockford region, this is the one I enjoy the most. Each hole is like an old friend. I learned how to play disc golf here and the course continues to help develop my game every year.

Pros: I found it hard to rate this course, as I do still prefer the original because it is more technical.
The first 4 holes are lined with mature trees, have some slope and a little bit of elevation. They are highly technical and even the modest arm can get a deuce attempt (not that it's easy).
The 7th is out of range for the average arm, but it is a beautiful hole with a perfect number. The 8th is a tremendous technical hole just under 300 that golfers of any distance will be pleased to birdie. The 14th is another great technical hole. The 15th is somewhat similar to 5 and 6, but at least a birdie is possible if you can get to the protected green.

The 17th is the signature hole, a marvel of moderate mature trees, elevation change going down and then up, and slope that seems to go both ways at different times. It's in the very reachable--maybe even ace run--range, but it's a difficult shot and rewards accuracy. The 18th is even more technical, almost too much so, but it's really a fun hole to take a rip at.
Cons: The 5th and 6th are in that reachable range, but they can't really be reached by the 300' thrower and are a bit bland.The 16th is similar, though slightly shorter, and can yield a birdie because the green isn't that guarded (though the fairway is somewhat tight, it's not that hard to navigate).

The course gets a little boring and way too long starting with the 9th hole and through to the 13th (only the 11th is cool, with an insidious low tunnel created by only one branch in front of the tee)
Other Thoughts: It's great to have two tracks in one place and well worth the trip!

Played: 250  Reviewed: 222  Exp: 10.5 Years
Pros: Again, its nice that there are 2 other courses to play without driving.

It was being sprayed and mowed while I was playing, so maintenance was not an issue.

More opportunities to use your drivers, but the course is much more open with a few trees as obstacles. The flow got a little confusing in the back, but I was able to find all of the baskets and tee pads with out a map.

Nice tee pads.
Cons: The signs were plywood and sharpie, but they get the job done. This makes this course look like the step child of Anna Park who gets neglected for it's sibling. Anna South or Anna East.

Its a standard Par 3 course. Scoring separation will come more from players screwing up, than making great shots.

Other Thoughts: The longer bombers will like this course more than the precision of Anna South.
While I feel Anna South was a better course, the two courses will receive the same rating because of how well Anna West was maintained compared to Anna South.

Pros: This course is the longest of the 3 courses on site. This course is sparsely wooded for the most part with some basically wide open bomber holes mixed in. The baskets are older Mach 2's that were in pretty decent shape and caught ok. The tees were all nicely sized and level and grippy enough. The flow of the course was pretty easy to follow. There's a good amount of elevation change all throughout this course too. This really adds to this course. If this course was flat it wouldn't be nearly as good. The tee signs were large pieces of plywood with the hole info etched into them. These contain a basic hole diagram, all pin locations, distances and a next tee arrow which is always great to have for first time discers at a course like we were. The course is permanent and there's restrooms and other park activities here too. It's also free which is nuts for having this many courses. There is a good mix of left, right and straight shots on this course just like the other 2. Very nice. The course was well mowed and surprisingly clean for what I assume is a pretty heavily used course.
Cons: The super long wide open holes were really boring compared to the wooded holes and just not exciting at all. Navigation was a little tricky in a couple spots, though nothing major. The tee signs leave something to be desired as far as looks. They serve their purpose but are pretty unsightly looking. Many of the holes feel similar, not really a signature hole here. The baskets are all in a little rough shape, they catch alright still, but who knows in few years from now.
Other Thoughts: This combined with the other 2 courses on site makes for a great day of disc golf. It's a cool place, having 3 full 18 hole courses in one park. It took us (2 people) around 4 hours to play all 3 on a non busy day. So don't think this is some easy walk in the park, It's a challenging set up.

Pros: - Sprawling park setting with large mature trees as the main obstacles.
- Great location with 2 other courses. Ample parking, bathroom/shelter/playground facilities.
- Good concrete tee pads throughout the course.
- Baskets are fine, but older.
- Multiple pins on most holes. Doubt they're changed very often though, from the upkeep of the rest of the course.
- A variety of hole types, ranging from wide open and long to shorter.
- In general, some tight gaps that need to be hit from quite a few of the tees.
- Nice, rolling elevation on this course, used on quite a few holes. Very nice.
- #6 - Liked this pin placement, as the drive is in the open, but you need the shot to land on a certain side of a long row of trees that are guarding the pin. Very nice, obvious addition to this hole.
- #7 - I like this blind pin placement, even though I had to run up to see where the basket was. You feel like you need to throw a hearty 'S' shaped drive to get through the gap, but in fact the gap is 250 or 300' out there, so there's really no need. Just hit a landing zone. Nice hole shape.
- #15 - A nice L to R hole that curves all the way to the pin. Requires a strong RHFH or a huge, accurate RHBH anny.
- #17 - Narrow gaps to hit on a shorter, uphill hole. Accuracy is key.
Cons: - Pretty terrible signage. At least there's something, but the signs are plywood with crude pictograms wood-burned in. Most have the multiple pins listed with distances. There was also a bolt to indicate pin position in some signs but missing in many.
- Navigation wasn't always the easiest. Definitely needed the map in order to find my way in a couple places. (7-8, 10-11). Also used a map to decide which pin placement was in multiple times.
- I was not a huge fan of 10, 12, and 13. One, or maybe even two of these types of hole (if separated from each other on the course) are fine, but these are long holes for the sole purpose of being long. If you were looking for scoring spread between 300' driving players and 450' driving players, I guess you got it. No obstacles whatsoever on these holes. I understand everyone's preferences are different, but it felt boring to me.
Other Thoughts: - This course is just obviously pretty well neglected. I played this course first of the three, and I'm glad I did. I wasn't overly impressed, and I can only imagine how unimpressed I would have been if I had played it after one of the other courses.
- All sorts of potential here with better maps and navigation, but in the end this course is just for big arms, without a lot of technical requirements.
- Judging from previous reviews, I feel like the course has been neglected over the past few years, and has suffered. I was unfortunately disappointed with the course.

Pros: -Concrete pads

-Nice rolling elevation that is very well utilized

-Plenty of huge trees that come into play

-Good mix-up of distances, Some shorter holes and some real bombers.

-There is a nice quiet feel to this course and it had a lot less traffic than the east course which made for a casual, relaxed round of DG.

-There are a bunch of nicely tucked away baskets that add to challenge.

-Good "fun factor" to this course, my friend and I liked this course more than it's eastern counterpart.

-Navigation is pretty straightforward

-Even though most holes are relatively open, an off target throw can be punishing if you end up in the brush that surrounds the fairways and baskets. This adds to the reward of a well thrown shot.

-Good variety of shot lines, I found myself throwing all sorts of different shots from hole to hole.

-Not a whole lot of fairway overlap but some overlap is evident on a few holes.
Cons: -Despite the fact that there are signs there were still a few holes we had to walk out to fully survey before throwing. This is probably being picky, It really doesn't bother me but to some this could get old.
Other Thoughts: Not a whole lot of cons to this course, I really liked how it played. It has some well guarded baskets in spots and some other holes where you can just grip and rip. This keeps things interesting and never boring.

This course when played with the east course is a good time, Both offer something very different. This course is a little less forgiving in regard to the east course but it still has a high demand for on target throws which makes it fun but by no means overly easy.
