Pros: Variety of elevations, approaches and lengths, well marked and easy to follow
Cons: No tee boxes, need a sign between 9 and 10
Other Thoughts: Home course and after traveling and playing on some 3 and 4 rated courses, imo it's right up there in quality

Pros: Very friendly people at Birch and you can play 24 hours a day during June and July. Disc golf is still a growing sport in Fairbanks so the course is never congested.
Cons: The course is played on ski trails, so permanent tee pads are not possible. When wet the tee boxes can get very slick but playing in the elements is part of what makes the game challenging, so who needs a concrete tee box anyways? This is Alaska!
Other Thoughts: Birch Hill is relatively narrow with the exception of the first two holes. Wide variety of holes for different throws including two holes that have 2 fairways letting you choose the route you desire. Check out the course in late September or in early October and you may have an opportunity to play at night in the snow as all the holes are lit up with light system.
