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.

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 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.

Bring Your Hiking Bunny Slippers And Climb It
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!

Pros: Good variety of open and tight holes, lots of holes involving water hazards in winter, dual teepads on many holes, Pin placements well thought out, Not too many walkers around, lovely setting of trees and water.
Cons: Slippery teepads when wet, 45 minute drive from Vancouver, no signage
Other Thoughts: We played in winter when the water was all frozen over and there was a bit of snow on ground. It play have covered the dirt up a little.

Best course around
Pros: Easily the best course in the Lower Mainland. Lots of variety, great locals, lots of length. We need more courses like this in Vancouver. Huge parcel of land. Some tight wooded holes as well as wide open bombers. Removed from the city, never too busy.
Cons: Its in Langley.... just kidding. Can be VERY difficult to navigate... no signage at all. Floods in Winter, very hot in summer.
Other Thoughts: I would move to Langley just so I could play this course more often.

very fun! great day out
Pros: some very good distances, very technical with woody areas and grass/desert areas. hole 13 is not as bad as it looks.
Cons: without a map, this course can be a little difficult to navigate. take the time to print out and follow the map - this course can be crappy without it.
Other Thoughts: Very fun - as far as courses on the lower mainland are concerned, this is right up there with the bowen island course. difficult yet fun, a challenge to find new routes, overall a great day out.

Langley Passive park
Pros: Great long shots and some tight ones too.
This was one of the most welcoming courses I have ever played. Unlike Queen Elizabeth park in Vancouver Langley's locals encourage new players. The water shots add that extra challenge.
Cons: Distance from Vancouver. Do not do this trip at peak traffic times.

Best course in the lower mainland!
Pros: A lot of fun to be found in this full 18-hole course. Some hole play tight through the woods and some have long open drives. Multiple tee boxes per hole adds a ton of replayability to old time favorites. Elevation change, terrain change, dog legs both left and right: variety is the name of the game on this course. There's something here for everyone and you can't get bored playing it again.
Cons: Poorly marked and some tee pads can be hard to find. Bring a map!
Other Thoughts: I've only played the "summer" course. In the winter, apparently most of it fills with water and the course design is changed up to accomodate.
