Hill Course is a good name
Pros: Start by checking in at the on-site, air-conditioned clubhouse/proshop that has refreshments and discs for sale. You'll receive a scorecard and course map. Concrete tee pads in three different lengths make this course playable by almost all skill levels; look for the spray painted rocks to determine which tee is which. Triple chain baskets are quality builds and mostly portable to allow the course to change configuration when necessary. Lots of elevation in play on this ~7000' beast of a course. Some "next tee" signs were in place to assist navigation. Some fun water shots near the end of the course.
The numbers etched in some of the tee pads are no longer accurate. The posted distances of some holes are way off of laser measured distances, e.g. #10 posted 190' measured at 321'... #11 posted 480' measured at 525'. Bring some colored discs to play here as white discs have a tendency to blend in with the rocky terrain. The provided course map was outdated as some baskets had obviously been moved and a tee or two removed. Use the map here on DGCR as the one on the back of the scorecard (at the time I played) was no longer accurate. Hole #17 played backwards from what was shown on the map! Playing from the long tees with out a spotter I can easily see how you could lose a drive or two.
Some of the blind baskets on this course are hard to find for first timers. I'm a reasonably hard-core disc golfer and I found this course to be more of a chore than enjoyable golf. It's a pretty solid course with some good holes but it just didn't have the same fun factor as its sister course on property: the Shire. Pay to play course.
