Nice course, lacks signage
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Nice variety: hills, trees, long and short, right and left, makes for a challenging course
-Chain baskets are in great condition
-Easy to access- a short walk from the Hardhof tram stop (or the Hardturm stop if you want to start on what I think is hole 8 then finish on 7, see "other thoughts")
-Very clean (obviously, it's Zurich...)
Cons: Most tees are marked with a faded line of either yellow or white spray paint, but overall, it was a hard course to follow. I ended up walking half the course backwards, then once I figured out where the first hole was, I managed to throw at all 12 baskets. There are a few white spray paint arrows showing the next tee, which was super helpful. It took a me second round, however, to figure out where each tee was for each pin.
The only other con is that there are many joggers on the trails (our fairways), sometimes coming around blind corners, so you really need to watch out and wait for them.
Other Thoughts: The map linked on this site has nine holes shown, but there are two more holes between 1 and 3 and another one between 8 and 9, making 12 total: seven on the south of the tracks and five on the north side.
I made another map with all 12 marked and posted it in the Links/Files section.
Overall, I enjoyed the course. Will play again soon!

Pros: Easy to acess with public transportation. Toilets and a small sandwich shop in the center of the course. It's on a sportsground, so no pedestrians, no dogs, no kids playing.
Technical course, narrow gaps to hit and challenging pin positions. The fairways are usualy well defined by big bushes that will punish you when you dont hit the intended line.
Cons: The tees are not marked well. They are only marked with yellow spraypaint. If you dont know the area you will have a hard time finding your way around.
Only 12 permanent baskets, the other 6 are set up temporarily for the Zürich Open.

Zürich Open Site
Pros: The longest course in Zürich! With 12 baskets and easy accessibility with public transport, if you're in Zürich and can only play one course, this is the one.
While the design and layout isn't super apparent until you walk through it once before, when you catch on, the holes are very challenging and fun.
Cons: Layout isn't obvious and the map isn't up to date. There are no tee signs (which would seriously help out a TON), and the tee is usually just yellow spray paint which isn't always easy to find. While there's 3 feet mowed that denotes the fairways, if you land off of them (which isn't unlikely...), you'll be searching for your disc.
When you're playing this for the first time without a guide, I'm convinced you'll be doing a lot of wandering around aimlessly praying to find baskets like me, but it's worth it when you find them because the holes really are fun.
Other Thoughts: Home course of the Zürich Open, this course demands that you can throw long and accurate technical shots if you wish to score well.
It's the toughest course in Zürich and you really need to be on top of your game if you wish to score well. Deuces here are very tough!

Atleast it had baskets
Pros: It had baskets, last two holes were nice.
Cons: It was hard to find, the course was not maintained, only found 5 baskets, tee markers where hard to locate and were just yellow spray painted lines. The last two holes were great compared to holes 1-3
Other Thoughts: dont wear shorts because your legs will itch for days! Holes distances ranged from 150 ft (3 holes) to 350 ft (2 holes)
