Pros: New course is more challenging and fun, long holes and diversity.
Cons: some tees are small for running. tree area could be frustrating... and 2 snakes in the same round is a little to wild.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course to play year round.

Pros: -New Discatchers - The yellow band is very visible in all the terrain on the course
-Concrete tees - Grip well and are in good condition
-Park amenities - Outhouse, large parking area, and picnic area round out the physical features
-Variety - from wide open to tight fairways to tricky rough around the greens makes this park a challenge to your entire game
-Scoring chances - while the course isn't a cakewalk, good shooting can result in excellent scores, while errors will cost you
Cons: -Signage - the map at the start of the course is incorrect, and there is no signage throughout the course, so first-timers will want to recruit a local to help with navigation
-Gravel - the gravel flood plain in the middle of the course has a tendency to chew up softer plastic
Other Thoughts: Passive Park is definitely worth a visit - the course is challenging and fun, and should test most shots in your bag. On the Saturday I went, the course was very crowded, and many of the locals seemed to have poor etiquette - hopefully that isn't so all the time.

Pros: Multiple tee pads and pin positioning. The course also has a winter course when the water levels are high in the middle.
Cons: If you throw a bad disc there is a lot of foliage and bramble to make a long search for a bright disc
Other Thoughts: The course has just had a nice face lift. Concrete pads and new baskets.

 Pleasant, but passive.

Pros: Easy to find, easy to play once you have an idea of the layout, a healthy combination of shots required, and a standout fun hole (11), even if it's pretty easy. There's very little in the way of schnarb to lose discs in, which is something I'm not used to being from Ontario.
Cons: The course is pretty short for my tastes, and a number of the holes seem to be "repeats" (9 & 10), (2, 5 & 12).

Breaking Rocks In The Gravel Pit!

Pros: Langley Passive Park is a fairly large park built around an abandoned gravel pit. The park doesn't seem to be high usage except for some dog walkers, occasional bikers and walkers. There is a picnic shelter at the beginning which which would make an excellent staging area for tournies. The courses features a practice hole which two pads. The baskets are older and sometimes a little difficult to see through the brush. The teepads are carpet but in pretty good shape.
Everyone seems to like # 2, a 388' shot off an elevated pad with a bit of an anhyser touch needed but I loved # 11 and it's three different teepads. 11 A is short hyser through the trees but it's B and C that I liked so much. 11 B is a 189' downhill ACE run through the trees while 11 C is almost the same shot but maybe 25 higher up. So most locals play them both everytime as kind of a combo tri-fecta ticket, 11 B and 11 C and count both shots. It's an easy climb for either so you may as well enjoy both throws every time you play the course.

Langley features a couple of extremely technical runs in #8 and 9. An uphill throw at 14. A fun ACE run at 17 and a fun finisher at 18. There's a really nice variety of throws here. I liked the flow of the course and it started and finished at the picnic shelter. Long and short tees.
Cons: There's no signage to speak of. Print a map for your first time. The carpet teepads are adequate at best. The gravel pit is not pretty and fills up with water leaving parts of the course unplayable during certain months of the year.
With a secondary school closeby, I could see a fair amount of high school partying going on here, probably with the usual vandalism also involved. But considering that this course has no signs and older baskets, I guess there isn't much for these kids to destroy, deface, paint or otherwise vandalize.
Other Thoughts: This is a very solid course, enjoyable, nice challenge, a couple of memorable holes, probably the best in the lower provinvce area considering that it has baskets and 18 of them. It would take me a long time to get bored with this course.

Pros: This course has not only a practice basket, but a practice hole with two tees at about 300' and 350'! A great warmup for the arm and some practice with all of your discs before heading out for a great round on a great course.

As far as disc golf in the Lower Mainland goes, this course is as good as it gets! Lots of variation in the holes (wooded, possible water, uphill, downhill, doglegs left and right, tight and wide fairways, etc) makes for a really fun round where you'll need to use all your shots. The locals are very friendly and will help you out if you're searching for a disc, or need some help with navigation.

There are also two sets of tees for every hole, but I recommend the longer ones as they are more strategically placed for a better challenge on most holes. Some of the notable holes include:
-A wide open tee shot down the hill on 2.
-A long dogleg left on 8 that you'll struggle to get 3 on.
-13 is a bomb of a shot that you need to clear a lengthy grove of tall trees off to the right to get to the main fairway for a tough upshot.
-An extreme elevation shot on 14. The basket can't be more than 100' away, but if your tee shot rolls back down, you're looking at a bogey.
-Several tough wooded holes. 16 especially is an extremely difficult tee shot that is a tough par.
-17 is your chance for an ace. A short downhill shot guarded by some trees, but a well thrown RHBH hyzer will put it on a clear path to the basket.
Cons: I really wish this course had a few true par 4s. You will certainly make several bogeys during your round, but they will most likely come from a tee shot into a tree, or a missed putt from 20'. There is plenty of room for a couple of 600'-700' holes, or even a tough dogleg in the woods that requires an accurate tee shot in terms of distance before leaving 250' to the basket (just an idea).

Though the course flows well, it can be difficult to navigate as there are no signs anywhere. Print off a map, or take a picture of the one by the parking lot, and take your time investigating where each basket is before teeing off - some of them are hidden quite well and you may be surprised to find that you're way off.

There are no garbage cans throughout the course, and the tee pads are just carpet on gravel.
Other Thoughts: Don't miss this course if you're looking for the best disc golf in BC. The courses in Vancouver itself can be fun for safari players, but Langley Passive Park is a legitimate disc golf course. Enjoy it!

Pros: I've played a bunch of the courses in the Lower Mainland and Passive Park is by far the best. Long drives, Challenging Basket Placements and a great mixture of Opened and Tree'ed Holes..
Cons: Besides the course map on hole 1 there is absolutely no hole signs anywhere and for the most part the T-Pads are brutal. Fix these 2 areas and this might even be a high four or 5 rated course..
Other Thoughts: Just add hole signs and update the T-Pads and this course will be one of the best in the Pacific North West.

Pros: I really enjoy playing at Langley Passive Park. The fact that it's the presently the only real 18 hole course in the Lower Mainland helps, but there's many other reasons. There's a good variety of holes here. Big open throws and tight wooded shots are included. The course has a good flow and pace with no long walks between holes at all. Some highlights for me would be hole # 2 with it's big elevated open throw, # 9 for it's straight tunnel shot up a narrow path, and # 15 because it's a pretty fair throw with lots of trees on the way and anything can happen. All in all Langley is the best course in the area.
Cons: There's really only one big negative for me and that's the lack of any signage. It makes navigation a little difficult for newcomers.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to look at, or even take a picture of the course map near hole # 1 before you start. The only washroom is by the parking lot. I'd also like to see concrete pads here instead of the current gravel and carpet.

Pros: Really fun course. It has a bit of everything. Tight lines in the trees, a few open bombs, left to right, right to left, you name it. Some very well thought out holes.
Cons: Unless you play a round with a local first it can be very difficult to find the next tee or where the basket is.
Other Thoughts: This is my favorite course in the Vancouver area or at least until Kamloops. Great variety of shots and really rewards accuracy. For sure worth checking out if you're in the area.

Pros: This course has awesome elevation, dense woods, open-holes, thick rough, great pin placements, and a fun challenge. The elevation on one hole is so intense; throwing downward may make you dizzy. Ok it isn't quite that, but it really was a great view and fun hole. You will need to be healthy to play all the longs. This course boasts two sets of tees and has some tough holes. The wooded holes were fair and yet will still take some accuracy. This place does have winter holes for when it gets flooded. The course has a good variety of hole lengths. I really enjoyed the layout. The tee areas and baskets are in good shape and there is great parking.
Cons: There is a bunch of poison ivy and other naughty vegetation. There were a ton of spiders. So go prepared and protected. Bring a guide, you will certainly need some help with navigation. There are no tee signs.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor here was really good for me. This alone bumps my rating up. I totally wanted to tee off multiple times and certainly wish I could have played it again.

OH! And thanks so much to the three guys who took me around this course. You Canadians are so freaking cool! Everyone I met up there was so nice!
