1st Course Over The Border In Idaho!
Pros: This is a beautiful, challenging course set in rugged Corbin Park. The river can come into play on three of the holes. Many huge boulders add to the challenge. The teepads are fine and there were maps available at the board. There's a nice mix of shorter technical holes and slightly longer, more open holes. Holes # 2 and # 10 are both classic, beautiful disc golf holes involving throws and the rushing river.
# 2 is a short (Estimated 185') hyser throw over a river's inlet to a basket perched on a rocky outcrop.
# 10 is another classic, beautiful hole where you tee off from high above the tee with the river on the left all the way to the basket nestled in some pines (Estimated 275') below. Hit a tree like my playing partner did and watch your disc carom into the rushing river far below.
Cons: The course would be difficult to follow without a local to guide you. There's not really a hole where the big arms can really air it out. The longest is probably a 345' throw through the trees.
Other Thoughts: Corbin Park is just off the interstate making it an easy stopover if you're driving I-90 across Idaho here. The course is rugged, probably different from most courses that you've ever played. It's difinitely worth the stop.

A little tough to play today.
Pros: A lot of interesting hole designs, they used the area and landscape they had very ingeniously. Beautiful setting for the course, as well.
Cons: It could have been a little better marked. We sometimes had a little trouble finding our next tee, but we made our way, eventually. There was a box for course maps at the sign, unfortunately, it was empty. We did get directions there to a nearby disc golf "shop" that was located inside a laundromat. Interesting.
Other Thoughts: The biggest problem we had in playing this course was Mother Nature. The river was extremely high, and all of hole number one, the tee for hole two, hole for 11, and tee for 12, were all underwater. So, we started at three, and used the tee for 11 to go to the hole at 12. It also made 10 very tough, as the river was within about 15-20 feet of the hole and you are throwing WAY down a hill off of a ridge, so I am sure there were more than a few discs lost during this "flood" season. Although we really couldn't tell what the normal river situation was, I guess it must have been really high, as we saw dozens of people driving down to check out and photograph the river, and even one news crew taking some footage. I really enjoyed the course and will definitely stop back again.

Pros: Versatile layout with multiple pin positions, genreally changed at the beginning of each month. What it lacks in distance it more then makes up for in its supurb technical layout. Hole 10 is more then worth the walk up the hill, not only a unique shot, but a beautiful view.
Cons: Lacks distance
Other Thoughts: "The local route" is definetly in play here. If this is your first time here tag up with a local and see some rediculous shots, that somehow work
