First round at Dry Creek Trail
Pros: -Good tee boxes, easy to find, brushed texture improves grip during throw. Tee pads narrow toward basket, so you always know which direction the hole is in.
-Clear signage with map of hole, length, and mandos.
-Most holes are good, long shots. Trees are present on all but 3 holes. Good for beginner or intermediate players.
-Good quality DisCatcher baskets, most are marked with the hole number.
-Bathrooms with drinking fountain adjacent to parking lot. (and the bathroom was really nice for a public park!) Also benches throughout the park.
Cons: -Distance between basket and the next tee is quite long on one or two holes. After basket 5, you have to walk the entire distance of hole 2 to get to tee 6.
-Signs for holes 1-6 are correct, but 7-9 do not match the map. Hole 8 has hole 7's sign. No sign on hole 9. Tee 10 has hole 9's sign.
Just follow the map and you'll be fine.
Other Thoughts: Fun, quick play course which is easy to get to from the freeway.
Park with a lot of shade on sunny days, and it is maintained very well. Nice creek running through the middle of the park.
Might want to jump in a tube and float through the park after a couple rounds!
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.

Pros: There is a little river running along the length of the course which is kinda cool.
Cons: Most holes aren't actually there anymore, and the few baskets remaining are bent or lopsided.
Other Thoughts: It seems like every time I drive by, there's a construction crew doing something. I have hopes that they'll fix the course some day.

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 many holes. Holes 2 and 4 offer an opportunity to reach out there with a longer drive. Hole 8 is fun as you strive for the right angle to go left 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: After many months of this course being closed down, it is now open again!!! If you have not played this course in a while, it's worth a visit. The course now features groomed grass on all holes with trees that are well maintained and a tree canopy that is in the process of being raised all throughout the course. Along with that, there are some new challenges with a lot of new trees that were planted on several holes (most notably on 2,6,7).
The Lehi city parks and recreation guys have put loads of time, effort and money into the improvements for this park. It looks great and is more fun to play than ever before! Also there is talk of getting a possible addition of 3 more holes come spring so stay tuned for more on that!
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.
Fun 9-Hole Course
Pros: It's a fun park with great surroundings. I love playing through the trees and getting a variety of shots that range from a simple flick across an open field to a forced layup on hole 8, (my personal nemesis hole).
The park is in much better condition than previous reviews indicate. The baskets are all there, including the putting one, and aside from a couple that look like the lawn mower smacked them, are in good condition and straight.
Cons: Hole 2 has some dirt mounds in the middle of it. That is better than it was in the past when it was all june-grass, but can be a bit annoying.
Course seems to favor back-handed throwers, so most holes force you to throw right to left.
There is a lot of walking between some holes.
Other Thoughts: The park isn't huge but could easily be redesigned to suit a full 18-hole course. There is a ton of wasted real estate around holes 3 and 4 and in between the long walks.
Overall this is one of the better courses in Northern Utah in my opinion.
Dry Creek Course Update
Pros: Excellent tees and baskets (the ones that remain)
A few fun shots through/around trees and over the creek.
Practice basket available
Cons: A little on the short side
Lacks turnover shots (rhbh)
Many baskets were either stollen or removed by the city
Other Thoughts: This used to be a pretty fun little nine hole course that I would usually play after 18 at Art Dye. The baskets are missing now on holes 3,4,5,6, & 8. Sad. You can tee off from the #5 pad back to the #2 basket and play to the practice basket from certain locations to give you a few more holes if you're creative enough. It really is too bad the baskets are gone.

Pros: Signage is awesome, some of the best I've seen (except missing on #8)
Teepads are perfect
Great area for kids to wade in the creek and play at the playground
Nice to have a cartpath-good for stroller golf
Several fun holes
The creek is deep enough to punish the bad shot, but not deep enough to lose a disc in (at least in July). Why it's called Dry Creek is beyond me. Perhaps it's dry in September. There's a foot of water in it in July.
Lots of OB with a creek and a path on one side, a road on the other. The whole park is never wider than about 100 feet.
Good variety in hole lengths, especially for such a small park-got to drive putters, mids, fairway drivers, and distance drivers
Cons: Only 9 holes (no room for more)
Hole 8 (See below)
Leaning baskets-seriously, how hard is it to put in sleeves straight. At least 7 holes were leaning over at least 15 degrees
Long walks between some holes-but better than putting in crappy holes-kudos to the designer for making that decision right.
Other Thoughts: What is the deal with hole # 8? This is clearly SUPPOSED to be the signature hole. It is a LONG hyzer through a tunnel, then fading over a parallel running creek into a field of no kidding 4 foot tall grass. There is a 10 foot radius around the basket where the grass is kind of stamped down, and a single-track pathway through the grass to the basket. You have nearly ZERO chance of finding your disk without at least one spotter in place. If you are playing this course alone, LAY UP ON THIS HOLE. To make things worse, there have been large pieces of scrub oak cut down from somewhere and tossed into the tall grass, well within the 30 foot putting circle to a 5 foot height. They might as well have hidden boards with rusty nails under there for as much pain as I'm in after losing a disc there. I'm certainly not the only one either, I found two discs in there while looking (unsuccessfully I might add) for mine. Do not throw your disc out of sight on this hole and consider skipping it. (And if you find a yellow Elite Z Flick with my name on it, please call.) The fact that there is no sign on the hole should have been a warning to me to skip it.
If you lost a disc on that hole, PM me. I may have it.
And please, some locals, get out there with a weedwhacker and hack that stuff down, at least a 50 foot radius would be nice. It's nearly impossible to lose a disc on the rest of the course.

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.
