Fun, but Consistent

Pros: Nicely wooded area.
The holes that use the hill and river add some variety to the course.
Nice signs, pads, and easy to traverse course.
Decent length.
Multiple pin locations and a unique tall basket.
Cons: Other than the few hill/river holes, most of the other holes are essentially the same. The course also favors forehand throws strongly.
Some signs indicated the wrong tee positions.
The disc golf course can get very crowded and other players/pedestrians are not particularly courteous.
Other Thoughts: The river is very hard to find discs in, so it's better to throw safe.

Still fun, but...

Pros: - Quality tee signs
- Concrete tee pads are in good shape
- Nice benches
- Multiple pin positions
- Wooded, technical shots
- Baskets are easy to locate with orange colored banding
- Layout and design is excellent
- Great views of the surrounding mountains; especially Mt. Olympus
Cons: - Poor use of quality tee signs
- Crowded with some groups numbering 6-10 players
- Poor disc golf etiquette in general
- Drinking and smoking though park rules specifically forbid it
- Off leash dogs that roam (against park rules) paired with irresponsible dog owners
- Heavy pot smoking throughout park, especially holes 4, 5, 10, and 15
- Area around holes 6 through 8 is a smelly, muddy swamp
Other Thoughts: Tee pad signs are the best in Utah. Each sign marks the distance to each pin placement and has a round, metal pin marker on the sign to indicate which pin placement is in use (very handy during the spring and summer months when the course is in full bloom and baskets can be hard to see). Baskets are moved frequently on this course, which keeps it challenging, but whoever it is that takes the time to move the baskets does a poor job of adjusting the pin marker dial on the tee sign to correspond with the new basket position, therefore the pin marker on the tee sign is unreliable; go figure!
The hillside (top, east and west slopes) along holes 6 through 8 are a muddy, smelly and slippery mess. I don't know if that has anything to do with what appears to be a school under construction on the west side of these same holes, but it has become a hazard. Though I haven't seen it to know for sure, it appears the sprinklers are being left on overnight; much too long and frequently, unless there's a broken water pipe that is the culprit. It has been like this for a few weeks now and hopefully will be corrected soon.
Disc golf etiquette at this course is about the worst I have ever seen in any sport. The drinking and pot smoking is surely responsible for the poor behavior, occasional confrontations and horrendous use of the 'F' word throughout the course. Not sure which is worst, a newbie that is ignorant of course rules and etiquette or a local, experienced player that knows course rules and etiquette and just doesn't care. Also, bringing your dog is fine, but being a responsible dog owner is paramount. There are way too many dogs that roam off leash and are a nuisance to other disc golfers. If you don't understand what it means to be a responsible dog owner, or you just don't know how, then leave the dog at home, or better yet...don't get a dog.
If you want to bring your family, a group of scouts, students, boys/girls club, or work employee party to experience disc golf firsthand, this is NOT the course to play. The lack of etiquette can make the whole experience disappointing.
Creekside is a classic course that is home to a grade 'A' annual tournament. If the locals would take some pride in their appearance and behavior, it would make a world of difference.

One of my favorite in the country

Pros: I travel 100% for work, and have played a lot of courses from Cali to Texas, but this one is my favorite.

Long course.
Concrete pads
Trash Cans
Benches
Good mix of ever type of shot
Cool creek shots
Ace runs that you can be proud of
Huge league mini tournaments.

Just a unique course with a lot of cool shots.
Cons: Gets a little crowded.
Once all the fish were dead in the creek and it smelled pretty bad.
A few walkers on the course, I nailed some chick from like 400 ft out on hole 10 once. I never even saw her until it was way to late. she got pissed and threw my disc
Other Thoughts: Cool Rotating tall basket is in a diff spot every time I come to town.

Have fun on this one.
The "Kraken" on hole 4 is cool.

Pros: - Good Concrete Tee Pads
- Great Tee Signs That Look Brand New And Give you all the info you could need
- Multiple different basket placements on every hole
- Good variety of distances especially with all the different placements
- For a pretty classic "city park" course it has quite a few tight wooded shots that really make you shape lines
Cons: - Baskets don't have numbers and some can be pretty close together depending on placement, making it very confusing sometimes with basket you are suppose to be throwing at
- More navigation signs are needed, there are multiple places on the course to get lost
- This course gets very crowded, I played at 8:15 on a Thursday morning and I had to play through 4 groups of 4-6 people. And tons more were on the course as I was finishing up around 9:30.
- Considering how busy this course is, and the close fairways, and the navigation issues, I feel there is a pretty high risk of injury on this course
Other Thoughts: Fun city park course, but navigation can be frustrating. Be careful where you throw and watch out for discs.

Old classic

Pros: Old classic course.
Lots of variety. Hills, woods, water, etc.
Alternate pin placements.
Cons: Very crowded.
Cramped fairways.
A little difficult to navigate.
Other Thoughts: Very popular spot for the locals. It seems like there is too much course crammed into a small area. Multiple pin placements and cramped fairways. Other players become as much of an obstacle as the trees.

Pros:
-free to play (this is always my top benefit of DG)
-good variety of shots
-great sign showing multiple pins and distance for each
-good baskets
-fun
-nice challenge level (not crazy hard, but way too easy)
-benches
-trash cans
-good use of the land
-scenic beauty
-course was clean from trash and sticks/debris
-friendly locals
-good flow from one hole to the next
-several pin locations per hole, makes for variety within each hole
Cons: -several fairways overlapped another hole; if this course were to hold a tournament, they would have to change some pins or remove some holes
-i'm no major course designer, but having 20 holes seemed to cramp the course. i would find a way to have just 18 holes so as to make more space between some of the fairways, pins, and tees.
Other Thoughts: -This was my first time to come to Utah and play DG. This was a trip to see my brother and his wife.
-My wife and kids hung out around the playground which was great for a 3yr old and 5yr old.
-The park has bathrooms, but they were locked that day.
-I got to meet some cool guys: Curtis and Jason.

Great course

Pros: Nice hole signs. Large concrete tees. Two practice baskets. Large variety in hills and also in trees. Variety of shots needed to score well. Variety in distances of holes. Multiple hole locations.
Cons: There were a lot of people playing this course but there is a reason for it.
Other Thoughts: Really solid course with a creek that winds through a few of the holes. The water really shouldn't come into play to much. If you do end up in the creek it is shallow and clear.

Pros: Great course. Attractive surroundings. Well designed for a variety of shots. Mostly long holes when I played but I noticed there were as many as five basket placement options on some holes. Easy to find and easy to access with good parking playground and facilities.
Cons: Needs a short (200ish) technical fairwaywith a visible basket. Hole 16 has a 207 option but was in the 291 position. The current March 12 setup offered distances that were very monotonous (all seemed 275-325 except 3a which was blind) . Easy fix if the local club pays attention to variety when changing baskets.
Can be crowded with intoxicated players.
Other Thoughts: Exceptional course for Utah.

Not to bad of a course

Pros: The course is located in a park so it makes it good for that family to be able to play there while others throw the course. The park/course is really nice with some open areas and some trees in others. Makes for a good variety of throwing. There is good signs telling where the baskets are and they do a good job at changing basket location to keep the course fresh. There are good concrete tee boxes and benches to sit while resting or waiting for others.
Cons: It is a very popular course and gets busy which can cause waiting. May not be the best course if you are in a hurry.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful park and course. Definitely worth playing and visiting.

Pros: - Very nice course, with great scenery and requiring a variety of shot selection
- Some fun elevation, and the creek is a decent water hazard
- Nice people
Cons: - Pretty crowded
- Signage is missing
- A little tricky to navigate in a couple of spots, I had to ask locals for help
Other Thoughts: Definitely a don't miss course in the SLC area. Not terribly difficult, but not a wide open pitch course either. Very good intermediate disc golf.
