Pros: --Variety: There are some good elevation changes here, variety of distances and some changes in difficulty. With the variety, players of different skill levels can enjoy the course. Beginners can learn a lot, especially playing with more advanced players, and for advanced players you can push yourself to birdie all the easy ones and work on distance throws, good anhyzers and helixes.
--Cream of the crap! Considering the other courses available in the immediate area--Lewiston and Moscow--this is the best of the lot!
--Family-oriented: There's a playground, tennis courts and a nice hangout area in the park so you can easily bring your family along and they can have a nice time using the facilities while you rattle some chains.
Cons: --Baskets: Some of the baskets are okay but most are simply hater baskets.
--Tee pads: The grass is worn away so that they're pretty much silt boxes. Some of them are gravel. This is probably my #1 beef with the course as it's dangerous to throw when you can't be 100% sure of your footing!
--Temperature: Make sure you bring water as this course can be a scorcher! A lot of people don't know that eastern Washington is a desert and the way the park is set up, you spend most of the round right in the sun.
--Traffic: It can be pretty busy so you have to be careful that you don't hit evening strollers and afternoon picnickers.
Other Thoughts: This course could definitely be nicer with a little TLC: signs to navigate, real tee pads would be a huge bonus, alternate pin locations and somebody to take the course under his/her wing to set up regular get-togethers and make sure the course is properly treated.
Also, because there's a fair amount of space, this is an easy course to mix and match holes. My group always plays hole 19: tee 17 to hole 9. Fun hole!
#11: Hit the tree, get a birdie!
Watch out for that Palouse wind!

Hilly Pullman Course!
Pros: It's a lovely, little park with some great elevation to work with. The baskets are fine. Like Joe Public said there seems to be a variety of long and short throws.
Cons: Course is about impossible to follow without a map. There were no maps available at the start by the stairs. The teepads are just grass and are hard to find. The wind was hellacious on the morning that I tried to play. There are no numbers on the baskets.
Other Thoughts: This is such a sweet little park for a course. It could really benefit from some simple signage. Welded on numbers on the baskets would really help but if that's too much trouble, how about duct tape and write the hole number on the inner tube of the basket. With just a little work on the signs, I'd love to give this course a higher rating.

Pros: Great use of terrain with fast greens. Great views of the Palouse and Moscow Mountain in the distance. Variety of longer and shorter shots, all challenging with hills and winds a big factor.
Cons: 9 baskets are Mach 3 other 9 are Mach 14 chain.
Look out for the kids on some holes and plenty of walkers not quite sure what we are doing out there.
Other Thoughts: Working on getting another course in the area to incorporate some wooded areas in this very grassy part of the country.
