Short n tight
Pros: The course plays through a disc golf exclusive section of a large park. The shots are short overall, with lots of ace runs and tricky little holes. The rough is thick, and definitely punishing if you miss your line. Many areas leave you with a pitch out as the only option if you get very far off the fairway. The tee pads are decent concrete, they're small but the holes are short so it doesn't matter. The tees are numbered, and the fairways are obvious so you don't get mixed up on which basket to throw to.
Cons: This course has a lot of RHBH hyzer shots, it would be nice to see a bit more variety in hole shape. The other course onsite balances it out, but if you're only playing a single round it's definitely not going to offer a full range of line shaping tests. The distance also gets a bit repetitive, with very short holes most players won't need anything faster than a putter or mid. Signage is pretty lacking, there's no distance or hole layout on the signs, so you have to scout out a lot of blind shots and there are some navigation issues.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course a bit frustrating, the lines are very tight and the rough is punishing. More experienced players will find several of the tightest holes quite easy with spike hyzer lines that beginners likely can't execute, and the distances are so short that only upshots and short game skills will be tested. I had fun playing these courses, but they're not for everyone, if you want to work on your putter shots and are in the mood for a course that offers a chance to go 10 down, this isn't a bad stop.

Pros: - Highly technical short holes almost feels like upshot practice.
- Cement tees, has signs but just with #.
- Interesting, unique challenge
Cons: -6/7$ to enter park.
- Grass wasn't recently mowed.
- All 3 poison plants..ivy/oak/sumac.
- Lots of mosquitoes, ticks, bees, thorns too.
Other Thoughts: Basically an insanely tight short course with many odd, blind, sharp turns through thick woods and prairie grass lands.
