Long Open Throws, Good Luck Finding Tees
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is a tough course for me to review. We started off trying (and failing) to find tee positions, so just played from the previous baskets. At the fourth hole a local (Ivan) joined us and it was smooth sailing as he knew there each tee was. Until he had to leave around the tenth hole and we were back to guessing.
The first six holes play around a large turf area near the parking lot. Mostly wide open throws across lush green grass. Holes 7 - 9 play around a large parking area with quite a bit of OB (if you count roads and parking areas.). Holes 10 - 14 play back and forth across a rough patch of land near the tennis court. The remaining holes play around the back of the buildings and back toward the parking lot.
Lots of holes in the 300' - 500' range with a couple near 600'.
This is definitely a course for those who like to throw long, open drives. Some basket placements are tricky due to placement near roads and parking lots, but there are few trees to deal with.
Cons: Best of luck locating the tees. They are simple timbers embedded down into the grass, and there hasn't been any trimming in the recent past to help find them. A couple are missing altogether, and the local guy I joined indicated thing like "we use this line on the sidewalk" and "we tee from this clump of grass". Without local knowledge you will not be able to play this course as designed.
Baskets are homemade and have large enough gaps in the tray for your disc to fall through which can be funny (!?!). Otherwise they catch fine. Baskets on Holes 4-6 are set on raised stands so are a good bit higher than normal.
Other Thoughts: As a travelling disc golfer the navigation issues at this course make it tough to play. The map is useful in telling you where to look for baskets, but the tee markers are practically invisible, and in some cases don't exist. You are left to guess at where to tee off from, and that gets frustrating fast. I was lucky enough to run into a local who played about half of the course with me. Otherwise I probably would have given up at some point.

Pros: 3 somewhat decent shots, thats about it.
Cons: Crappy baskets, no signage except the numbers on the baskets, hard to find the 'tee boxes', mostly all boring straight shots, not much close parking.
Other Thoughts: Play the sunset park course instead.

Nice local course
Pros: Challenging, long and beautiful. The campus activity center offers a scorecard with a map on the back.
Cons: Holes 4, 5, and 6 are missing, as well as the pad for 7. Campus can sometimes be crowded. It is nearly impossible to play the first time without the map. Most pads are hard to find/missing... The homemade baskets have slots on the bottom that a disc can (and will) fall through...
Other Thoughts: I was not expecting a course this nice when I got to Riverton. They really need to update the course with the missing holes and more clearly marked pads. If that was done it would for sure be a 4!

Pros: long holes, beautiful setting, hard to play if its windy outside.
Cons: college is under construction so front 9 is actually front 4. tees are hard to find because they aren't concrete and are sometimes burried in grass or dirt.
Other Thoughts: very fun, fairly long course to play if its not windy! you can get a course map if you need one in the activities shop located inside the college by the cafeteria.

Fun at Sunset
Pros: Beautiful setting on the front nine. Good baskets, don't let "homemade" description scare you away. I really liked the first few baskets set in the front of the college. Very nice setting.
Cons: Course doesn't require a wide variety of shots. Tees are difficult to find, in fact, I never found the tee for #9. Tees are also difficult to see since they are simply toe boards at ground level.
Other Thoughts: Play on a later summer evening and get a map. Bring a trusted mid range and a couple of drivers at either end of the stability spectrum.
