Pros: Good warm up for the South Course. Intermediate players will find it easy to get a couple birdies on these eight or nine (depending on how you play em). You can play it in any weather, and it would also be a good place to take a novice thrower.
Cons: Only nine holes from this course still exist, the rest have been removed by the park. In my opinion these holes should be toughened up a bit, re-numbered, and officially added to the South Course.
Other Thoughts: This is basically an abandoned course that lots of people still play. Makes for a nice round of 27 if you play these first and pick up the South Course on hole number 8, playing back to hole 7 which is closer to the parking lot.

Pros: First 9 are good for beginners pretty open on the back 9 there are a few tougher holes.
Cons: Grass is very tall can easily lose a disc.
Other Thoughts: As of 4/5/09 on 16 they have big piles of dirt. We called it the moon hole. Other than that it was very fun to play.

Pros: Concrete tee pads, signs, trash cans, picnic tables, benches, bathrooms, and playground for kids, Riverbend park is on the river, but they have a couple of ponds for fishing as well.
Cons: #16 is a disaster right now, that must be where they are putting the soccer field in. There is 500 mounds of dirt 5 feet high, and it could be tough walking the hole for some.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy the harder South course at Riverbend much more. However, definitely worth checking out.

 Not As Good Anymore

Pros: A good warmup or continuation into the REAL course - the south course.
Cons: Much of the original north course, including several of the back 9, have been removed or altered as new park construction came later. Those altered holes have been shortened and aren't nearly as fun as the old course, which I would have given a 3.5 rating. Now, too many short holes.
Other Thoughts: After the soccer field is constructed, hopefully the local disc golf club will reinstall the back 9 to its former glory. The photos are from the old course.

Pros: Water, bathrooms, tables, benches, garbage cans.
Short "duceable" holes. Newbies can score well and experienced players can cut loose and have fun. Nice layout in a moderate hilly and wooded setting, with the feather river nearby. Cement tee-pads with embedded plaques giving hole numbers and dedications.
Cons: The transition between 9 and 10 is kinda awkward, you have follow the sidewalk across the parking lot at least 600ft. Perhaps the holes are too short. Signs were old and faded, could use improvement.
Other Thoughts: We played both North and South courses as one long 36 hole course. It was unanimous by our club the "Sunday Drivers" to be the best course yet.

Pros: When the holes play through the woods, they are interesting and challenging.
Cons: The wide open holes were nothing special. The 9 holes (front? back?) near the other course used to be much more challenging (I was told) - but the powers-the-be keep removing trees and hills or putting up bathrooms in fairways.
