Pros: Good course for a beginning player, but still can be fun for more experienced players. All concrete tee pads. Mostly Wooded holes with a few open ones. pretty hard to lose a disc, with the exception of hole 5 if not careful. good course if looking for a quick/short game.
Cons: not enough trash cans. easy to overthrow a lot of holes for a more powerful player.
Other Thoughts: this is my home course that I play a few times every week. pretty much a roc and aviar course

Pros: The course is pretty clean. It makes you think through every shot as there are a lot of trees and terrain changes.
Cons: Houses with dogs on the east side of the course can transform your new disc into a chew toy.
Other Thoughts: This is a course worth checking out and is by far the best laid out and kept course in Coos County.

Small, but it packs a nice punch

Pros: - The holes are short, and the course is small - great for families and people newer to the sport.
- Good balance of terrain - most of the holes have slight elevation changes, and 7 of them are in a forest.
- Holes 10-18 use the same baskets as 1-9 but with slightly different tees. As a newer player, it's nice to play a round of 18 and "re-do" some of the holes I wish I could've done better the first time.
Cons: - This course is on a very small piece of land. Holes and fairways are tightly packed together, with a high risk of getting whacked by a wayward disc.
- Course navigation is not always intuitive. Quite a few holes require you to backtrack halfway down the previous fairway in order to find the next tee. 3->4, 6->7, and 8->9 are especially notorious for this.
- Once again, being on a small piece of land means the holes are short. Bigger arms will find themselves gunning for aces or overshooting the baskets on almost every hole, assuming they don't hit a tree first.
- There are still some old, small tee boxes on the course. Although the "true" tees are clearly signed, and these old tees are comically small, they can be very confusing if you don't know where you're going.
Other Thoughts: While it's not "destination" caliber, Winsor Park is an excellent little course that makes maximum use of a very small plot of land. It's gentle enough for the newest of noobs, yet requires precision and accuracy from the more experienced players to score well.

If you're in the Coos Bay area looking for a well-maintained, well-balanced disc golf course, Winsor should fit the bill nicely.
