Hard to navigate
Pros: Beautiful course. Several unique holes that really challenge you. Concrete pads make for good throwing surface on almost every hole. Mostly short, good for learning how to control your disc in tight fairways.
Cons: Several crossing fairways, several areas where you have to walk up or down rocks or hills that can be dangerous. Several holes where you're throwing along or across roads and can beat up your discs or hit cars. Not marked well at all, I would have been totally lost playing this course except I was with a group of locals who knew where they were going.

Pros: Great challenge with the elevation differences, rocks, trees, and strong possibility of losing a disc or two in the river :^)
Cons: Hole placement difficult at high-flow.
Some tee boxes not well marked.
And if I'm being overly-critical, I would say that some holes are a little short.
Other Thoughts: Love this course.

Nice neighborhood course.

Pros: Corbin is a great place to take the whole family and make a day of it. You can play disc golf, fish, camp, hike, swim, and play softball. It is a picturesque county park along the Spokane River. There are bathrooms and drinking fountains available in the warmer months.
The course is not long but is technical with a couple of the fairways bordering on poke and pray. The water comes into play on 1, 2, and 12. With 12 being a top of the world throw, in its newer position, with the river running parallel. There are 3 others that begin on top of another rock hill but go in different directions. The terrain goes up and down the hills and on fairways 8 and 9 you are on the side of the hill and throw farther down the side.
Accuracy is a premium here and the ability to place your throws for an up or putt is a must. Overhands, backhands and sidearms will be used. Not a good place for rollers. There is a fair split between straight fairways and those that bare left or right. With multiple pin positions on many and a couple with dual teepads it can really change things up.
Most of the teepads are concrete with alt 4B being dirt and 6 rubber.
Cons: There is a winter layout and a summer layout. The course is hard to follow in spots in the winter layout and when in the the summer layout it can be tougher. In the summer 2 is closed and there is an alt 4B that takes its place. The caveat to this is the locals are friendly and almost always willing to take a noob along.
On holes 3 and 18 be careful about throwing on someone. Three is about 30 feet directly above you and the fairway is shared with 18 going left and 3 going right.
So many of the fairways are borderline poke and pray, in the case of 9 it is poke and pray, it is hard to look on this issue with favor.
There are no tee signs and the flow is hard if you are not diligent. The map here only shows the 15 basket layout and it is not accurate. This inconsistency is why I did not give numbers to some of the basket positions in the above section.
Also the roads in the park are crossed and played along side of during much of the game so the possibility of hitting a vehicle or walker is high. Also, during heavy usage, like the 4th of July weekend parking overflow causes people to park right on fairways.
Other Thoughts: Despite the poke and pray this is a fun course to play and is very popular in the slow months. I enjoyed myself and will play it every chance I get.
The weekly held here is alternated between Cherry Hill and Corbin and is run by the North Idaho Disc Golf Club. It regularly pulls in 50 players and is a blast.

Worth a play
0 Helpful / 3 Not
Pros: Pretty course. A few outstanding holes. Nice tee pads. Tight technical. Cool rock outcroppings. Nice swimming area during the summer with cliffs to jump off of by swimming across the river.
Cons: Dangerous at times. Crossing fairways and lots of park goers and nice summer days can make it a nightmare, if you're in any kind of hurry. Cars can sometimes park in the fairways.
Other Thoughts: Probably the best course that could have been put in for the funky piece of land that was available. Totally worth a play. Probably the lowest rated course in the area, but it's still really popular for good reason.

OK, I guess...
Pros: This was an interesting little course close to I-90. It is in a picturesque little park right next to the Spokane River. There were several interesting lines to attack off of the tee pads, the baskets were all in good shape, and the tees were all paved. The course had good flow (4 to 5 was confusing and a long walk), and following it was not too hard, though I was playing with a couple of locals starting on hole 5.
Cons: This course is very short. I only had to throw a driver once in the entire round, and it was on a 400+' shot that I would have had trouble reaching in ideal conditions. There are also lots of tee shots that you are throwing with very little control over how it ends up because of how thick the foliage and trees are. The difference between a perfect shot and an awful one can be extremely minute (a foot or two right or left 200' from the tee).
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty little course set right against the river. It makes good use of the land that it has, including a top-of-the-world shot that turns out to be a RHFH hyzer out over the river and fades back toward the basket. If you are going through the area and only have time to play one course, Cherry Hill is probably better, but I would not fault someone for liking Corbin.
Also, the map is no longer accurate. They have updated the course from 15 to 18 holes by adding several after hole 4. If you can find the old teebox for 5, keep going across the road until you get to a large asphalt area. There are two tees spray-painted into that area, and hole 5 plays back along the way you walked (it is fairly obvious).

Pros: Beautiful setting. Great mix of thought provoking shots mixed with some nerve racking holes. Will definitely play this course when I'm back in the area this summer.
Cons: Even with a map, was a little tough to find a couple tee boxes...but that is a very slight complaint.

Scenic and fun
Pros: A beautiful course located in a scenic park setting. This course offers a course through fun rugged terrain. The course is mostly technical, but offers a few open shots are challenging and fun. The course uses elevation throughout which adds difficulty as well technicality within these shots. The variation of shots required is ok, but you won't have to pull out any new shots. The course is in a desert like setting and rocky so the course doesn't really needed to be kept up. Concrete tee pads help with grip. There are trashcans throughout the course. Restrooms are available at the front of the course as well as plenty of parking. The tee signs and maps are there, but they are confusing due to the lack of accuracy of where the holes are. The course design was done well, but the course lacks a solid flow throughout. #9 on this course is a epic hole for the ages. You are shooting on the side of a cliff into the woods with a rock drop-off and river to the left of you which adds the risk reward aspect as well as a very scenic shot.
Cons: This beautiful park does have its flaws. The flow of the course really lacks which makes for trouble following the course, even with a map. The course also has 18 holes, not 15 like was posted before on the front page. #16 doesn't have a tee pad so it is difficult to find.
Overall the courses difficulty was a 3.5/5, and was a lot of fun. It's tucked away in a park with scenic views and enough challenge that is worth going to if you are in the area of passing through going to Spokane or out East. The locals were very friendly which was nice when we got confused of where to go.

Pros: The course is nestled (jammed) in a small park next to the Spokane river. The scenery is beautiful, with a winding river, dense trees and exposed granite. The course makes the best use of the land that is available and definitely has some memorable shots. 8 is a long corridor shot on a hill and 10 is a top of the world shot that enjoys a magnificent view of the Spokane river.
Cons: I cannot believe that this course has an average anywhere NEAR 4 stars. Like I said before, they make good use of the land that they have, but this course is very short and many of the holes lack any challenge besides a tight fairway. Speaking of tight fairways; some holes border on poke-n-hope and replace challenge with a wall of trees. Signage is poor and some fairways are too close together or play through a parking lot. I had to skip two holes today because of this.
Poison ivy sucks! I know it's not the course's fault, but I'm so allergic to this stuff it's almost dangerous
My biggest beef with this course is not the course, but what it surrounds. There is heavy interaction with pedestrians who are in the way either because they don't know or don't care about disc golf. People park in fairways, children have been hit by discs, and I've seen open hostility at this park. To top things off, it gets packed with disc golfers during peak months, many of whom play in huge slow moving groups.
Other Thoughts: If you ignore the hoards of people that make this course a headache to play for most of the summer months, then this is at best a good short course. If I could rate the course on how it plays and how it looks alone, it would definitely be a 2.5 or 3.0. It is definitely a fun and great looking course, I simply wouldn't consider playing it during peak hours.
Kudos to those who built and maintain it, you did a great job with what you had!

Pros: Lots of elevation change. Beautiful scenery. It is along side the Spokane River, so there are a few water hazards. Not windy because of all the trees. Big field in the center of the course to warm up on and practice driving.
Cons: There are a lot of tight trees. There are no signs by the tee pads. Hole 17 crosses both hole 3 and 18.
Other Thoughts: During the summer months there are only 15 holes, but the rest of the year there are 18. It gets quite busy in the afternoon, but if you play in the morning there is not a huge crowd.

A Rocky Adventure thru the Trees
Pros: Quite challenging along the Spokane River, playing amongst the rock boulders, trees, and hills. Beautiful setting and layout. Enjoyed having a few short holes too along with many difficult to navigate through the trees holes. 13 is a cliff shot and risky fun.
Cons: Was quite popular and busy so a group was always playing through since we were new and learning where to go.
