Enjoyable Twelve Hole Course Gets Lots of Play!
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: The Dry Creek Trail Park is a narrow little park which is tucked in between the road and house on the backside. The small creek runs the length of the park and helps provides some challenge and also the trees along it's banks provides shade on hot summer days.
The course has nice amenities. The concrete pads are textured and are shaped so that you always know which way the hole is. That is you're throwing towards the more narrow end of the pad. The Discatchers are in good shape and most have the hole number on top. The tee signs are really nice and clear with hole #, Par, distance and route to the hole. The pars here more or less based for middle school aged players. Either accept that and go for those Eagles or just play everything as a Par three.
The course begins in the middle of the park near the play area. Some fun little throws to be had here.
# 10 was a short little throw which crossed the creek.
Then # 11 playing from an elevated tee, has you throwing a little hyser to the basket down below. Then you finish with # 12 and follow the little trail and cross the rocks that lead over the creek. I wonder what these rocks would like in January? Actually, I was wondering what this creek would be like in the spring? Is there enough water then to actually be hazardous?
Cons: There is a long walk between a couple of holes but I prefer that to having filler holes in between.
I think some of the holes have been slightly changed so the signs are not exactly right but the course is fairly small and easy to navigate, especially with the on-line map.
Other Thoughts: As I was finishing my round, a group of eight was hurrying to finish before dark. Their group consisted of three adult men, a adult lady and four elementary girls. I thought, how cool, to see a group like that out enjoying themselves on one of our disc golf courses. That's what I like about Dry Creek Trail Course, it's a fun and challenging enough course for most of us recreational type players but yet this group of total novices can be out here playing and having a great time.

Good Little Course
Pros: The course is set in a park that runs along a stream and the trees are well established making for some good obstacles. It's nine holes and has a good variety of shots.
Cons: The numbering of the holes was off, almost as if someone had moved around the baskets to try and be confusing. The main map sign isn't the best, but you can make out where you need to go just fine.
Other Thoughts: It's a fun course to play and it isn't far from the freeway making it a nice little stop along the way home or during a drive.

Nice neighborhood course
Pros: Parking close to hole #1, Large textured concrete pads, new baskets, nice tee signs, kiosk with course layout, easy to navigate, never crowded(w/DG players), dog friendly, restrooms on-site.
Cons: Walk between holes is longer than usual, small parking lot, path runs along course that is occupied by non DGr's, safety issues with hole#1 being next to a playground.
Other Thoughts: This is a short nine hole course that is laid out on a narrow strip of land between a creek and houses on the other. There are plenty of next tee signs but if you have trouble just follow the path 1-4 and back down the path5-9, you can't go wrong. This trail/park gets lots of foot traffic who are unaware of the sport, be careful. The course layout offers some long and narrow drives, a couple of mandos, O.B., water hazards and short technical throws. Overall this is definitely not a must play course, but for the beginner, intermediate, local and family oriented DG'r you can't beat it.
There is lighting along the path and you can practice your putting after dark!

Pros: not crowded, a good developmental course for beginner and intermediate players.
Cons: some houses come into play on some holes. no bathrooms.
Other Thoughts: this is a true links course. a lot of walking between holes so it will feel like the longest nine holes youve ever played. it still is well designed with the terrain that this course has to offer, a flat, narrow strip of land between a creek and housing. this is the type of course every disc golf community needs, a place where beginner and intermediate players can go to and not feel overwhelmed or pressured by big design. i wouldnt recommend this course for a travelling pro, but family groups and casual players will like this course.
