Lunchtime Pastime - Good variety
Pros: Great 9 hole course and lots of fun to play during a lunch hour! I play this one often during the week. Lots of trees to play through on the last 3 holes. Holes 2 and 4 offer an opportunity to reach out there with a long drive. Hole 8 is fun as you strive for the right angle to go over the creek and around the trees.
Cons: Only concerns here would be the kids at the park on hole 1 and 6 during the summer. Otherwise a fun course.
Other Thoughts: The city is just finishing some clean up efforts of the trees and brush around many of the holes on the North end of this park. This has opened things up a bit and allows for some better throws with less time playing lumberjack!
Pros: Quick little 9 hole with some shots near a little creek. Hole 8 is fun, plays over the creek. Hole two mounds of dirt are gone but what should be the fairway looks like it has taken a beating by some tractors.
Cons: Hole 6 seems tough if people playing at the park.
Other Thoughts: This seems like a small spot that has been well utilized to throw a 9-basket course in at. If you live anywhere nearby its worth stopping in at. Make sure to look course layout over as tee 3 is not visible from basket 2, same with tee 7 from basket 6.

Dry Creek Trail
Pros: Each tee has a concrete pad with a map and sign of information. It is a well-kept course with well-built holes. Never crowded.
Cons: Only nine holes. The entire course is played along a fast-moving river, which could easily take your discs. Backyards do come into play on a few holes. There is a playground 100 ft past hole 6, that could be a problem if you overthrow (by 100 ft...) Entire course is narrow, which makes it difficult for beginners.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun 9-hole course that can be viewed from I-15 in Lehi. It has multiple par-4 holes, so it is not terribly challenging. It has OBs and Mandos, which adds to the difficulty, but even so the course is fairly easy. I personally wouldn't make a road trip just to play this course, but if you're in the area playing Art Dye or any Provo courses, it's worth the 5 minute detour off of the freeway. It's a fun course, but it won't challenge you much.

A little 9-hole gem
Pros: Baskets- All in great shape
Pads- I really liked the tee pads here. It's that little scuff they give the cement to make it extra grippy.
Signs- Tee markers are very well done and there are plenty of "Next Tee" signs to help.
Parking-small lot and plenty of street parking, right by first tee
There are a a few holes (1, and 7-9 come to mind) that require some tricky technique to reach without getting into trouble.
Onsite potties (under construction and closed seasonally) will be a plus.
Cons: A few of the holes (6, for example) are mostly wide open shots without much in the way of obstacles.
I can imagine if the park were a little busier than when I visited, you'd have frequent safety waits--due to tight quarters and the kids' playground.
Neighborhood on the west side of the park shouldn't come into play...but it's awfully close.
Course layout is a little tricky, but the onsite course map and abundance of tee signs and markers should be enough to drive away any confusion.
Other Thoughts: This is a great little gem. Nine holes tucked between two neighborhoods in a little ravine.
Overall, this is a wonderful use of space and an example of how disc golf can be incorporated anywhere. Wish there was room for more than nine.
It wouldn't be challenging enough to play all of the time, but I'll definitely be back!

Pros: Good use of land and terrain, presenting obstacles suitable for intermediate players.
Cons: Close proximity to some houses. Layout was somewhat confusing the first time around.
Other Thoughts: All around fun course. Parts run along a creek, which when flowing is a real threat to carry off the disc of the careless. Bathrooms were being built during my visit. I will play this course again.
