Other Thoughts: This course was thought out pretty well and makes use of many features on the campus. Hole #3 is really the only questionable hole as it plays over tons of concrete. My solution to chewing up your discs less would be to buy an innova Wolf for $10 and throw a roller tee shot. This won't beat up the disc as much and on the cement you could easily get 350 + foot rollers. I really liked the first hole, teeing off from the elevated parking lot for a big hyzer. The fourth hole is also unique, I big downhill hook to the right. A find that a forehand works best for this (right handed), but if you fade too quick you're liable to strike a tree and end up OB in the Road. The 435ft long 5th hole is a heck of a par 3. The remaining holes are short and technical, each offering unique shots. You could tell that lots of thought went into designing this course. A great college course that is worth the time to look at if you're in the Salem area and want to get away from the crowded and flat cascade gateway park.
