Great for Beginners, Boring for Pros
Pros: - Lots of open space, hard to lose discs.
- Generally quiet park, bit of pedestrian traffic, but not much.
- Decent baskets (though some are a little tilted).
Cons: - Not much signage left, no clear tee pads.
- Definitely need to have a map with you to play the course.
- No elevation changes, pretty straightforward layout.
- Can be pretty soppy in the spring.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course, so I'm probably a little biased, but it's an enjoyable, open course that offers up enough space to experiment with drives. That said, you can throw into houses along holes 4 & 5 if you fire way right.
This course is hardly used, but if you're ever visiting and want to play with a local check out the Mountain View Disc Golf group on Facebook and someone will likely want to meet up with you to play. A slightly more challenging Back 9 has been developed that plays well with some interesting tee locations.
A pro will not find much value in this course, but an amateur/casual player should enjoy it as its length compared to the other easy Alberta courses (Three Sisters, Forest Lawn, Red Deer Victoria Park) makes it more challenging. There aren't really any "This should probably be a Par 2" holes like there are on some of the other courses.
Plain and Soggy
Pros: Logical Layout
Reasonably maintained (mowed ~weekly)
Tolerable drive distances
Cons: Extremely wet (partially flooded)
Tee signs hard to identify
No tee pads
Other Thoughts: Not a great place after a rain. There are a number of low spots throughout the course, and it doesn't take much to get puddles or pools of water to obstruct a few fairways and even a couple holes locations.
While the tees signs are worn off / missing, the course layout is logical in the shape of a capital L, starting at the NW corner of the park.
Great place for beginners and those breaking in new discs. There is very little opportunity to lose a disc, and plenty of open, quiet spaces.
Great for practice
Pros: Pretty wide open course
-No chance of lost discs
-Great for practicing shots and techniques or trying out new discs.
-A chance to really rip drives across the field
Cons: Uninteresting and poorly signed
-No much in the way of variety to keep things interesting.
-Holes used to be signed at each tee, but they have been destroyed or worn away.
Other Thoughts: There was LOTS of wind when I played, which made things much more challenging. I have heard this area is often windy which adds extra difficulty to the course.

Nice, but boring.
Pros: Quiet, well maintained and nice baskets.
Cons: Poor signage, no tee lines, and not much of a challenge.
Other Thoughts: Pretty nice quiet course, but I wonder just how much it's being used. The other issue is that it's SO wide open, not alot of obstacles to make things challenging. Drive straight to the basket and put it in. It would be boring to play more than once.
