 Needs trees

Pros: -quick easy course, can be completed in 30 minutes (I spent about 20 minutes on my first time to the course)
-easy to find next tee
-easy to locate baskets from the tee
Cons: -too short, the first basket I overthrew by about 20 feet (and I don't have very far drives compared to most people with my experience)
-not enough trees or obstacles, but it sounds like that was due to dead ones being pulled out, hopefully new ones will fill in fast
-home made baskets, they threw off my game terribly, didn't have very good chains for catching, they also seemed to be too high but that may have been an optical illusion.
Other Thoughts: Overall it was a decent course, if you want to try out a new course and want a quick break from driving down the interstate, it's worth it. Only about 3 minutes off the interstate and right next to a lake and skatepark. Also, it is located just past many food places and walmart and other such places which you may need to visit during a long drive.

 A Quick Lunch

Pros: Easy to find and play. Nicely maintained park full of places to entertain children. You can literally see where kids are playing from any hole on the course without having to worry about them getting hit by a disc. Course is very beginner friendly. Some of the holes have interesting obstacles, some of which are man made.
Cons: The pros and cons of this course may be the same things. For many, this course is too easy. An ace on this course may barely even feel like an ace on some holes. The catchers and teepads are odd. The teepads (although okay) are made of asphalt, and it remains to be seen how they will wear. The catchers are homemade, and are workable. (some will probably find them frustrating.)
Other Thoughts: It is a fairly small convenient park. If you are taking the family or want to sneak in a quick round at lunch, this is a great place to get it done.

If you are looking for a bit more of a challange or want to sample what the local area has to offer in terms of disc golf you would probably check out: Bengal Ridge (Pocatello), Freeman Park (Idaho Falls), or Lake Walcott (Rupert). If you want a short course that still presents more of a technical challange, try Upper Ross Park.
