Pros: The course is set on a hilly 9 hole ball golf course. This means that many of the fairways are pretty open and grassy, but the pin placements do a great job of adding some risk at the end of the hole with elevation and foliage around the pin. The sand traps and greens playing OB adds a little more risk/reward with many of the disc golf baskets behind the ball golf greens. The elevation is used well to keep the course interesting, with a nice downhill shot to start the course and more rolling elevation through the rest of the holes.

The grounds are very nicely maintained, with some cool views of surrounding mountains. The discatcher baskets are showing some age, but are in good shape and catch well. A putting basket is in place next to the clubhouse. There is no signage specifically for disc golf, but the score card has a map that's easy to follow and yardage for all the sets of tees.
Cons: $5 seemed a bit much for the quality of the course, even though you can play twice around the 9 holes. There are some fun shots but nothing spectacular or really a signature hole. Ball golfers play at a much slower pace, so you might end up waiting quite a bit, it took us about an hour to play 9 holes.

The design does a nice job of making things a little tricky around the basket, but there isn't really much early trouble, so the drives on most holes are pretty routine. Ball golf holes (especially on a shorter course like this) don't bend very much, so nearly all the drives here are straight shots.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun alternative to the crowds at Morley, and offers some fun shots. It's open enough that a beginner wouldn't find themselves too punished by errant drives. More experienced players won't be too challenged here, and there isn't a ton of variety needed in shot selection. If you're going to play here, I recommend sticking to less busy times if you don't want to spend a ton of time waiting behind the ball golfers.
