Pros:
-Centrally located in Eugene
-Concrete tee pads
-Tee signs
-Good baskets
-Practice basket
Cons:
-Short
-Overcrowded
-Plays at and around bike/walking path and road
-Very poor drainage in Winter
Other Thoughts:
Westmoreland is the only disc golf course in the City of Eugene. It is well loved and has been since 1988. Unfortunately the park is so small that a re-design to keep up with modern players and equipment is not possible. All of the holes are short and there are not enough design elements in the park to make the course all that interesting. It is truly a pitch and putt course and a great place to practice your short game. Poor drainage over a large part of the course make it very unpleasant in rainy periods, some teepads actually under water, and a LOT of mud.

Because of the lack of courses in Eugene and the beginner friendly nature of this course it suffers from overcrowding and overuse. The course plays at, along and over a walking jogging path, and a sidewalk and busy road are also in danger of being in play. With both of these things being said it's pretty amazing that there aren't more conflicts and dangerous situations. For the most part, common sense and safety prevail. Westmoreland is sort of stuck in the past and a little over-loved. Not a destination course, but good for beginners looking for a course in town.

Pros: Great for beginners, trying new shots, cool locals, great CTP course.
Cons: short. theres not a hole on this course over 420ft. it can get pretty swampy as well. on nice days expect to wait in line for a little while.
Other Thoughts: all in all this is a great little course thats well maintained. I play here almost everyday, and love it. its not the most challenging course ever, but if you need your disc golf fix, its not far from home.

 Pitch and putt

Pros: - Great course for working the short game
- Open, but the few obstacles on the course make it mildly challenging
- Warm-up basket before the 1st tee
Cons: - Very short, with little variety in holes
- Extremely crowded. I played on a Thursday afternoon and there were close to 20 people queueing at the beginning of the course.
- People don't seem to respect the rule of "don't drive when somebody else is playing the hole"
Other Thoughts: Small pitch-and-putt course. Drivers are completely unnecessary; bring your midrange and putters and work on the short game. I would also recommend trying to play at off-peak hours, unless you're okay with crowds.

 Not Bad

Pros: Westmoreland is a course designed for newer players in mind at least that is what it has become. Originally put in the ground in 1988, I can image this course was a little harder throwing Aviars and XD's unfortunately disc technology has made this course closer to a pitch and putt. Still there is some fun little throws and no glaring design flaws holding it back too much. The course plays around an open field closer to the trees and has some entertaining shots. Hole one is an easy yet fun tunnel shot with a giant road sign style mandatory sign, pretty funny actually. This is also one of the only courses that has a practice basket and the around nine game metal plate on the top and several standing areas for the game, very neat! Also there are multiple pins that mix it up for frequent players.
Cons: No major flaws other than being short and not challenging. I did have a major problem with all of the garbage and vandalism found all over the course, it just looks as though there isn't a local club looking after it very well or at all. Holes six and seven has uneven tee pads, six was slanting uphill and seven was slanting downhill.
Other Thoughts: I was playing at about noon on a Thursday and the course was already packed with people, kind of crazy, can't imagine what a beautiful Summer Saturday would look like! This isn't a must play and is actually pretty vanilla but it is a short course perfect for travelers looking to stretch theirs legs or course baggers like myself as you can get a fairly quick nine that isn't too bad.

Pros: Short, par-3 course that's great for beginners or people who want to work on their short game. Nice, roomy, concrete teepads and baskets with varied pin locations. Everything is well marked and signage seems to be pretty accurate.
Cons: During the off-season it becomes very marshy. The course also isn't manicured very well or often so when the nice weather rolls in, grass lengths can be up to 4 feet in some areas which makes it difficult to locate discs. This does tend to improve as the season goes on.

There is an ever-increasing number of players in the area and it's reflected by large wait-times at the course. Often times there is a 5-10 minute wait in between drives during peak times.
Other Thoughts: Because it's a beginner-friendly course, many players are unaware of common etiquette. I've had a couple discs picked up and stolen literally in front of my eyes. The most recent time I played here I was struck on the top of the head with a distance driver with no warning.

Also, because trees are fairly sparse it gets moderately windy a lot of the time.

 Decent city park course

Pros: The course is manicured well, good use of trees and elevation change making it a fun quick course. Every hole has a sign that is fairly accurate, and every tee is easy to find from the next basket.
Cons: The wind can become a big factor on this course, especially 3 through 7. Gets very muddy after a rain or in the winter. Can get very backed up on weekends as its only 9 holes. Most holes are pretty short, (but nothing too short)
Other Thoughts: For a city park this course was well designed. A fun course to get some short game practice, since most holes are less than 250.

 Nice beginners course

Pros: Short holes with trees placed strategically to keep them from being total ace runs. Fun 9 hole course and enjoyable bunch of locals. I think that #4 is the only "long" hole, but has a wide, open fairway. I played this course a few times each day that I played here and my worst score was +2. At the time I had only been playing for 8 months.
Cons: It gets a bit muddy after rain and very busy in the afternoons. If you want to throw long, this is not the course for you. I threw mostly midranges and putters from the tee pads.
Other Thoughts: This course is enjoyable if you are in Eugene and want to play.

Pros: The course is Very open, Not as many trees as most OR, DGC's. SUPER SUPER friendly Local Crew. Eugene Bomb Squad!!
Cons: They dont call it Westmoreland WINDS for nothing. It's not un common to have a mild breeze that shifts direction on every hole. But im from Wyoming and this really was'nt an issue.
Other Thoughts: I spent 20 days in Eugene and played 2 or 3 times a day at this course. It became home quick. I love the locals. the homeless guys are alot of fun. They will hang on to a lost disc for months to give it back to ya. Plus they all play, and play well! Go play this course!!!

Pros: There are a lot of open shots. If you go early in the morning before class there are not very many people around and you can get through two or three rounds fairly quickly. Good course to get your confidence up.
Cons: muddy during the rainy season. It can get to be easy after playing it a few times.

 Duck and cover

Pros: Nice park setting, easy to follow course. Great for beginners.
Cons: Locals are mostly "throw and go", with little or no "golf etiquette". No fore warnings and no waiting for you to clear the green either. Safari players are equally as dangerous. Really distracts from the potential fun level.
