Pros: Very well laid out. Big park. Not too many hazards and a good challenge. The course is well maintained, and they utilize the lay of the land well to offer up good challenging holes that are a lot of fun to play. Unlike previous reviews stated, there ARE hole markers on the tees with an overhead layout of the hole showing you about where the basket is. Also, unlike previous reviews, there IS a map right next to the tee for hole one on the wall of the library.
Cons: Other than the poison oak and the blackberry bushes, I have nothing bad to say about this course.
Other Thoughts: There are lots of trees to throw around, if you like the challenge, you'll love the course. If you're like me, be prepared to sound like a lumber jack trying to chop down trees from a distance. Some of the holes are a little difficult to see from the tee pad, others you simply can't because of trees and bushes, but that really adds to the challenge and is a plus in my book.

Pros: *Absolutely beautiful scenery
*Dedicated disc golf course, not many pedestrians.
*Very well maintained
*Not much underbrush
Cons: *No maps on site
*Could use some arrows pointing to the next holes, got confused a few times
*A sign next to the tee box with the hole number would be nice (currently the # is only painted on the concrete tee box)
Other Thoughts: I just loved this course. After the first hole there is a long transition across the street to the 2nd hole. The 3rd hole you are throwing into the wind in a wide open area. The good news is you get to use that same wind in you favor on the next tee shot. We had some difficulty finding the basket on the 5th hole. The map makes it look like a gentle hyzer but in reality it is a sharp almost 90 degree bend to the basket. So make sure you know where the basket is before driving here. After the 6th hole there is the longest transition back to the 7th. On hole 8 the map is misleading once again as it is a very sharp turn with a big hyzer needed again. Got lost trying to find the 11th hole, we found the map misleading here. The rest of the holes had a good flow after that.
This course doesn't have really long basket placements. Most of the holes are very birdieable for the intermediate player. For the intermediate player I think this is an ideal course. It is challenging but not overly frustrating. Good variety needed off the tee (distance drivers, mids, hyzer & anny's).
Currently I would say this is the best course in the Columbia River Gorge.
For those in the Portland area, if you are looking for a new course to hit, this would be worth the drive up. For what it's worth, I drove 45 min to get to the course and felt it was well worth my time.
