Disc golf course

Northwood Park - Blue

Morton, IL



Northwood Park was the original brainchild of Greg Nettles, who built and paid for the course himself back in the early 2000’s. After the onslaught of low scores from the 2011 inaugural Ledgestone, Greg and the team set out to redesign the course, which produced some of the best holes on the original property (current Gold hole 5, hole 17). After winning the bid for the 2019 PDGA Pro Worlds, Nate Heinold had the idea to create a gold level course, so 5 new holes were built in the woods. This Gold layout was used at the 2019 PDGA Pro Worlds and the 2020 Ledgestone, but once again the course is evolving. Kip Taufer and Nate Heinold envisioned a second course at Northwood, and with the support of the Morton Park District that course is nearing completion. The Black course, aptly named to describe a scratch (ie, par) round of disc golf that would equate to an approximate 1020 rating, is a beast of course measuring nearly 11,000′ from the long tees. The Black course will be one of the featured courses for MPO in the 2021 Ledgestone, and will also be featured in the 2022 Combined PDGA Worlds. In addition to the black course, divisions will also get to play the Northwood Blue course (original course, pre gold). This will essentially be the layout that was redesigned after the 2011 Ledgestone with two minor tweaks. Current gold hole 7 was part of the original course, but that hole will flow over to the black course. Additionally one more hole will be removed from the original design, and two new wooded holes will be built and designed to the east of the original hole 15. Northwood Park will become a disc golf destination with two championship level courses.

A slightly different version of the OG Northwood layout before Golds. A fun and challenging mix of open and wooded holes.

Really nice course, had everything you would want in a high quality, and challenging course. I've also played a number of courses that are at least as challenging and fun. Northwood Black, however, is next level, really hard and all around impressive.
