Cute Little Employee Course!

Pros: HP East Park is small park especially designated for the employees of Hewlett Packard. The pretty little park has a small pond, picnic pavilion area and a walking/jogging path which flows through the park.
The little six hole course starts behind the pavilion and completes a circle around the pond. The baskets are single chain, temporary type Discatcher models which are chained down to a small round slab of concrete. The tee pads are simply two patio blocks set in the lush green grass here. There are no signs. The course is just an easy little Pitch & Putt. Most holes are around 150' and might require a little hyzer, nothing too difficult.

I had the course to myself. There were plenty of maintenance men working everywhere and a few walkers-joggers passed by. The employee parking lot across the street is large and provides ample parking.
Cons: It's a short Pitch & Putt. Very little challenge.
Only 6 holes.
Course is not open to the public (well maybe?)
I couldn't find the pad for # 4.
No signs means you have to figure out the layout.
Other Thoughts: There was no guard or station at the entrance off 5 Mile Drive. I simply drove in and parked, walked across the street and played. With that being said, I doubt if this little course is worth sneaking onto to unless you are a serious course bagger. Since it plays in 15 minutes, offers very little challenge, and is private, unless you're bringing children or a complete newbie, I would recommend skipping this course. Drive over to Nampa. They have a nice variety of beginner type courses.

Not worth the trouble.

Pros: -I'm never going to complain that a course exists...
-Not crowded.
-Good if you work at HP and have a lunch hour to kill.
-Plays RIDICULOUSLY fast, we're talking <15 minutes by yourself.
Cons: -Only 6 holes.
-There are marked tee areas, but they are just concrete circles with a # and distance(12ish" diameter) but they are usually grown over by grass and near impossible to find.
-Private, must work there, or be with someone who does.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course again. If I happen to be nearby and have 20 minutes to kill I might stop by.

Pros: Very nice park, good course for beginners.. kinda (water), private and peaceful.
Cons: Went with some family members who had never played before. There were no course signs, no tee pads, and only 5 not 6 baskets. Geese everywhere with their expected droppings. As a DG player, just having baskets doesn't make a course good. HP can afford to put in tee signs!
Other Thoughts: If you can get a course map it would be a fun course.

Pros: Good for beginners as course is short and fairly open. Nice scenery and well maintained lawn for entire course with asphalt pathways between.
Cons: Lots of ducks/geese and their associated droppings.
Other Thoughts: Tees are a little difficult to find unless you bring the course map. Water isn't really a concern since there are plenty of safe places to throw away from the water.
