As many indicate, it is a challenging course which you realize as see the Hole 1 tea box leading directly into the dense woods with about a 5 foot wide "fariway". I went 2 days after a heavy rain and there was standing water on many of the holes so it is not a great choice if the ground is wet. Without any leaves on the trees it was fairly easy to find discs but it would be very difficult with foliage
Finally as far as navigating it. It is a bit chaotic but I found that the first few holes are on the left side of the path. Then it crosses over to the right side of the path for holes 5-10 or so, using the path to get from hole to hole. There are really just small gaps in the trees that act as paths to the holes. Around hole 10-12 it crosses back to the left side of the path, turns around and works down the border of the woods and the field. We got lost a couple times on the early holes but were able to backtrack and figure it out.
This course has some great wooded holes (1-5 are a great challenge), but there is no flow and it gets very confusing and difficult to find the next hole. A few holes are so over-grown, they're basically impossible to play. With a bit of maintenance and signage, this could be a great Chicago course.
Lots of spiderwebs between trees. A bit difficult/confusing to navigate around. Not much variety. Not at all crowded. Close to Midway airport tho
If you can't aim your disc then bring some friends who can spot for you. This course can get extremely muddy after it rains. I only sidearm so I've gotten very good with my dog leg lefts. That's all this course is! Reminds me of Kentucky this is the course I play the most since moving up here
This course is very difficult! I usually spend more time looking for discs in the woods than I do actually playing. The layout isn't bad, it could be much better if they cleared some more trees to open it up a little and it they cleared some of the brush on the ground. Although its nice to have an 18 hole course in this location, I would prefer to skip this course and play one of the other courses in the area.
TOUGH! Extremely narrow and wooded. On many shots you have to just throw and hope it doesn't hit a tree or lay it up. Many holes go to the left, very few dog-leg rights, so even tougher for a sidearm thrower like myself. It's a nice course for the scenery
(minus the razor fence!), very pretty inside the woods, just don't go into the round thinking you're going to get the same scores you get at other courses, or you will get very frustrated. The course is not easily navigated though, so pay close attention to the map when you walk in. Not known by many people in the area, so it's not crowded which is nice.
