watch out for crazy people
Pros: well maintained
no bush whacking needed
Cons: lots of goose
its to wide open for me, it looks like a real golf course
when busy people can be mean, aggressive, and jerks.
i was almost hit by a disc, on purpose, by people i never even talked to.
to much water in play
Other Thoughts: this compared to my michigan courses is way to open, i like wooded courses.oh and there is lots of large carp in the pond

Watch out for deer!!!
Pros: Extremely fun course. Lots of fun shots and water traps. Big fairways that are well maintained.
Cons: Almost got trampled by deer on the fairway of hole one. Creepy people walking around and playing. Aggressive players who like to walk around with tall-boys, shirtless. Had some dude who didn't even want to wait for us to hole out... they just drove and almost hit us.
Other Thoughts: Please do not let all my cons I have entered scare you from playing the course. The deer was probably the scariest part.

Pros: -Long well maintained holes
-Lots of different approache possibilities on some holes
-Some good birdie opporunities
Cons: -Lots of people playing. Have to get up early to play to not have to wait.
-Lots of water/stinking swamp hazards (although, you may like this kind of thing)
-Bums and creepy middle aged guys in parked pick-ups
-Only bathrooms that I saw were port-a-potties at hole 1.
-Over-zealous cops around
Other Thoughts: Lots of opportunities for losing discs, d/t water hazard so make sure you label your discs (or bring a disc retriever or wader pants) because there are people who wade through the water to find them.

Great course for beginners and pros!
Pros: Great course. Wide open enough for beginners, with enough challenging lines and hole positions for more experienced players who want to go for birdies.
Large rivers and ponds on the back of the course provide challenges. They are very slow moving though, so if you do throw a disc in, you dont have to chase after it.
Almost every hole has some sort of water/ob hazard, so it makes every shot interesting and provides a good challenge.
Huge concrete teepads and great signs showing the hole and all of the pin positions and lengths.
The parks and rec fellas rotate the hole positions (2-3 positions for every hole!) every 4-8 days, so it keeps the course from feeling stale.
Cons: Nothing major if you keep your disc out of trouble. The stream the runs through the back of the course is about waist high and is pretty gross to get into. Its pretty much stagnant goose-poo water, so make sure you take a good shower if you have to go in after a disc.
Don't throw your disk into the tall weeds. They are accompanied by a gross stinky swampy bog that eats discs!
Other Thoughts: Play in the morning to avoid crowds, but prepare to get your toes wet and run from sprinklers! Afternoons can get a little crowded. Overall a great course. I play it almost every day and it never gets old.

Pros: this is my first 4.5 rated course. excellent range of shots from hyzers to anhyzers short and technical to long and open. Well maintained with a couple of ponds and a stream that is well used throught out. pretty easy to follow as most tee pads are near the previous pin.
Cons: a couple of places where i stood at the pin and scratched my head a little, i think it was after hole 18 theres a pretty good walk to 19.
Other Thoughts: great course overall and definitely worth checking out if your in the Boise area

watch out for water!
Pros: The nature is beautiful and generally the people are very friendly. There's even a hole on top a hill with some sand.
Cons: there is a huge ass lake and river covered with bird shit that really scares players from throwing too hard. if you misthrow (and believe me it's not hard to do) you could loose your disc easily
Other Thoughts: some guys are so desperate to find discs they actually dive in the lake to get them, hehe.

Pretty Disc Golf Park
Pros: Environment- Beautiful park and easy to find. Good layout to cover the entire park.
Baskets- Excellent shape and easy to spot.
Tee Pads- Good concrete on most but, dirt on some. Still safe.
Signage- Easy to follow even without a map.
Course Flow- It was easy for my family to stop at 9 and have a bomb picnic before finishing.
Cons: Environment- Goose poop on a couple of holes.
Shot selection- Decent range of necessary shots but, distance is the key to this course with minimal technicality.
Crowded- While it wasn't unplayable there were a lot of patrons but, all were friendly and patient.
Other Thoughts: I'd highly suggest this course to anyone passing through or living in the area! Very beautiful park with a fountain for kids to play in on a hot day and a bad azz park for the kids after they follow you around through the 20 holes! Good times, I'll definitely be back on my next visit!

The Boise Gold Standard
Pros: The course is in great condition and well maintained. It's long with lots of opportunities to unleash big throws. However, there are also a lot of holes that reward precision.
Cons: Can be busy at times.
A few opportunities to lose your disc.
Other Thoughts: There's a little something for everyone on this course. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Nice grassy, mostly open course. Plenty opportunities for the 300 foot plus drives. A couple streams add a little challenge to this course.
Cons: No elevation change, and to call this "moderately wooded" I believe is a little bit of a stretch. A few holes are close to neighbors fences.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the stop.

ann morrison park
Pros: Well groomed/maintained city park. Bathrooms. Dogs allowed. Food and drink are within walking distance of course.
Cons: Goose poop. Dogs must be on leash. No alcohol on course.
Other Thoughts: Anne Morrison Park boasts a beautiful and user friendly disc golf course that has been re-designed the past few years from 9 to 20 holes. Tee pads and tee signs on every hole. The terrain is flat, and plays on mowed lawn 100% of the course, creating a fairly wide open playing area. There are various tree and foliage hazards on the course with some OB water thrown in by way of ponds and small streams. Mature trees come into play off the tee pads for your drives, located down the fairways on most holes. Bird life frequent the ponds and adjacent fairways, mostly canadian geese which you may have to look out for (watch your step). Some fencing comes into play on a few holes but nothing that is unfair at any level of player experience. You will need to cross the access road in the park after holes 4, 6, and 16 to get to the next teepad. A little confusing since there are no signs directing you to the next teepad. Also a couple of the teesigns on the back nine are missing, but is not a big deal as you can pretty much see where the next teepad and basket is.
The course plays fairly long, 330 to 550 feet per hole on average, with only a couple of shorter shots. Rollers can crush this course if the fairways are mowed and its not wet. An ideal course for pull/pushcarts. Wind will add a pucker factor to your game if its blowing, especially on the back nine where most of the water hazard is. You would think this course would be dull and repetitive with the terrain being so flat and consistent, but the designers have done a good job mixing up the tee shots to challenge you with hyzer and anhyzer drives with a fair amount of risk down the fairways and around the baskets from OB, trees, and water hazards. Being the only real course in the Boise area, its crowded. Boise State campus is nearby so a large amount of beginner and intermediate players are present at all times. Allow for wait delays and big groups to deal with, at peak hours.
Aside from the popularity, the setting and ambience of this course is extroardinary. There is a real feeling of separation from the mainstream of life, and should be experienced if you are in the area. A must play course.
