Nice mix of short and long challenging holes in combined wooded and open setting. Large trees, bushes, and elevation changes between upper and lower areas. Open year round from dawn to dusk.

My home course and favorite! Very challenging forest holes and a good deal of elevation changes make this a difficult but rewarding course.

Pros: Very well maintained. Concrete tees. Can be difficult with the various grades and forest holes. Bathrooms and water near the civic center.
Cons: None in my opinion.

Great course with nice mix of challenging holes to play. Fox Valley Disc Golf Club and city of Oswego do an outstanding job of taking care of the course. Very friendly players for the most part as well.

Fun course, demands accuracy & good trouble shots, one of nicest in area. Pros: very well kept, challenging, shot variety, lots of front & back side obstructions, alternate tees. Cons: navigating can be confusing, hole variety (mostly wooded), thick brush, high traffic, mosquitos. Still, given the site location, as good as it gets.

Played Oswego for the first time this weekend in a tourney. Great course with a variety of shots to play. Very well kept course, with good tee signs and markings on the baskets to point to the next tee. There are so many great courses in the Chicago area. This isn't number one, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Wish I didn't live 46 miles away.

Good course in a nice park. Elevation and good variety of both length and foliage. Dual tees (concrete on the shorter set). A very solid 4 chain ranked course.

Very challenging course with lots of places to lose a disc. I prefer Jericho in Aurora. I didn't like that the tee signs have the picture on a side perpendicular to the hole, kinda makes it confusing to know where you're throwing.
