Put it on your bucket list
Pros: Very scenic park on a lovely British Columbia "Gulf" islands.
3 9 hole loops. One with (great!) tonals and two basketed 9's
Amazing and elevation changes throughout the course playing up and down both sides of a very rugged rocky hill.
Lots of challenging gaps and tricky greens.
Practice basket and practice tone pole at courses central with a couple picnic benches and a covered shelter. There is also a practice basket at the back end of the course near the bathroom somewhere around hole 21 or 22.
Heavily wooded with ancient Douglas Fir and beautiful Arbutus trees. It looks like you are playing disc golf in a Endor forest!!!
The course is old, well established and played a lot. The paths are well worn, it is easy to navigate from basket to tee
Loads of friendly locals and a very very busy and vibrant disc golf community everything from children to senior citizens.
Cons: The course in really really short. Some holes as short as 100 feet, the longest is just over 300 with the average clocking in around 150. You can easily get around with a roc and a putter.
Could be a very challenging walk for someone with mobility difficulties. Some extreme climbs with jagged rocks everywhere.
Signage is very very basic and the first time through I had to walk ahead on a handful of holes to spot the basket.
Teepads are not really teepads but a place to plant and throw. They are uneven and bumpy but I also think paved pads would look out of place.
Other Thoughts: I spent a weekend on Pender, played the course 3 times and loved every second of it.
If you go plan to spend some time exploring the island away from the course the whole island is breathtaking. There is plenty of cheap camping options as well as more expensive lodging if camping is't your speed
If it was longer and had proper pads it would likely be my first 5 disc review.

Pros: Great course, fun for everyone, has a good mix of easier holes (front 9) and more technical holes. Fabulous area, once of the mose sceenic courses I've played. If you like Aces!!! play it, you wont be dissapointed, and if your in the area come out for the Pender Bender, its a blast, usually May long weekend (ish)
Cons: I guess you can hurt yourself if you gete too intoxicated while trying to navagate the terrain.
Other Thoughts: Sweet times here, definately worth checking out if your in BC.
