Mcpherson dg course
Pros: amazing scenery of the san francisco peaks. moderate elevation changes on holes 1-7, 8-13 alot more elevation, 14-18 moderate elevation changes. some short technical holes on the front 9 more longer ones on back 9. very clean fairways with no low hanging branches. large concrete tee pads is a big plus. some holes have multiple pin positions.hole ten is worth multiple throws from the long tee. the tee signs are great, giving you the length of the hole and other pin placements. clean dg course for the most part, you dont see to much trash around at all. very enjoyable to play. favorite holes 3,10,12,15(rubber pad).friendly locals.
Cons: alot of trees,but it only makes you better. can be packed in summer. more trash cans needed. the front 9 can get confusing for a first timer. longer pin positions. rocky in places.
Other Thoughts: must play if you are in town. closed for winter. you are bound to have a great time at this one. Hole 15 has a longer tee pad area,look for the rubber pad way behind the cement tee. when you are walking from 12's basket to 13 pad you walk past it. its on the left ( probably one of the best holes from the rubber pad ).....also 17 has another rubber tee pad area. dont miss out on these two long positions. Mcpherson offers alot of fun for am and pro players. dont miss out

Another top notch course in Flag
Pros: This course a had a good mix of long and short holes, lefts and rights. It's more spread out than Thorpe so it feels less crowded on Saturday afternoon.
Cons: I guess the only con is that it's not as fun as Thorpe, I know that's not very subjective but I've always found Thorpe to be a more fun course. I think this course is also a bit harder. It's seems a lot easier to mess up a shot and turn an easy par into a double bogey. Where at Thorpe it seems easier to save yourself from a bad first shot.
Other Thoughts: It's tough to rate courses in flag as there all so good. Well taken care of and well thought out. If this course was by it's self somewhere, than it would get a higher rating. but since it's one of 5 great courses in Flag it's got a higher standard to live up to.

Another good Flagstaff course
Pros: Balanced design - good mix of left, straight, right holes, variety of lengths, though no really long holes. Good signage and excellent tees. Some terrain variation, but not much seeing that it's in the mountains.
Cons: Nothing memorable about the course, which to me is a con. I'd like there to be something that stands out as a signature hole or element to the course.
Other Thoughts: Another well-maintained, good to play course in Flagstaff. Another reason this is a great town for disc golfers. More oak and other deciduous trees than at NAU or Thorpe. Definitely worth the stop.
