Great course except a 700ft hole 15. Arm tired enough from first 14 then a 700ft.

Pros: Nice challenging shots with some interesting hole placement. Behind trees, on the side of small hills, etc.
Cons: Built literally around a marshland. I went for the first time after rain and had to play a third of the course bare footed because the pathways and pins were in water. Couldn't find the 11th tee box. Pins aren't labeled so its a bit confusing for a first time player--look up a map if you can.

Overall a fun course, but I'll have to go after it has been warm for a few days straight!

This is a fun course. Some confusion on the layout. It's hard to find tee #1, and the basket for #18 sits in the middle of the fairway for #3. I'd play it again if I was in the area.

Very dynamic course, requires a variety of different shots, one of the most entertaining courses I’ve played in the area. A small (8.5x11) course map is near #2’s tee pad, off the sidewalk by the parking lot. Great tee pad signage for each hole, some challenging OB lines. Wet marshland, prepare to get wet up to your calves if you throw off course. EDIT: photos posted here are very outdated, will submit new ones next time I play there.

Didn't have a lot of fun here! The course was set in a marsh or wetland. Most of the holes were equivalent to sitting a disc golf course out in the middle of the Florida everglades. Any drive off the fairway and you will pay dearly for it, by getting wet and probably losing your disc. No navigation to speak of and no signs. The whole park has seen better days. Only play this course if there is a drought for the season.

Starting off I spent 30 mins finding first tee. Also you have to go behind and around the back of a public works building!! To make it worse they blocked the walkway to hole one with equipment and vehicles. There is no signs that your at the right place anywhere off the street!
The good ! First 8 holes are fun. On a hot sunny day it was like playing at a water park!! I would be happy to donate a can of spray paint!! And then maybe spray the next tee and basket locations!!?? Would play if I was paid to again!

One of my favorite courses in the NW burbs of IL. First two holes on the front and back nine are challenging, if you can escape with pars/birdie in some way or fashion you are getting a huge leg up on any competition you may have. Demands all types of shots and accuracy off the tee.
