Worth the drive
Pros: Private course with a strict call ahead rule limits crowds.
Beautiful forest to play through with great use of elevation on many holes. The short hole lengths were very fun but still posed a nice degree of difficulty.
Emphasis on accuracy over power throws. (I don't have a cannon so it's a pro for me)
Excellent use of natural obstacles. The baskets are well placed and are challenging to get birdies on without an extremely well placed drive.
Each hole had a unique feel and stood out from one another. Hole 18 over the lake was both scary and my favorite hole on the course.
Cons: The front 9, I was told, was the first 9 hole disc golf course in Oregon. The baskets show that. Single chains meant for quite a few missed putts that either blew through or poled out. The back 9 are significantly better and have the standard double set of chains.
(if you've got a SOFT putter, make sure to put it in your bag before you make the trip)
The signing for the front 9 was misleading in relation to actual pin placement and the distances were off. It will help to go find the baskets before teeing off.
Other Thoughts: My group came down and were fortunate enough to get possibly the best experience possible for our first time playing. (Aside from the rain)
Adam, the groundskeeper for Tadmor and his friend, who actually lives on the camp, joined us on our round and were completely awesome guides. They rang chains for us and spotted our tees the entire round. Adam even balanced on one butt cheek, out on a limb (literally), over water, and fished for my disc on 17 when my upshot went in the drink. Wish I'd have had a camera for that.
When you call the number listed for this course, you will get a lengthy recorded message. Tough it out and wait for the groundskeeper / emergency contact option. It will give you a different number to call. That is Adam's cell phone and he can green-light your playing there.
Respect the course, its got a long history and should be treated as such.
Can't wait to go back!
