- Long, short, and technical holes, bring your whole bag!
- The terrain changes from front to back
- Variety of shots required
- Challenging for all levels
- Multiple basket locations
- No crowds at all
- Good signs and tee boxes
- No buildings or cars to worry about
- Deep rough and disc eating brush
- Stinging Weeds on the front nine
- Finding your way from 9 to 10 is tough (see below for directions)
Other Thoughts: When you enter the park just go until you see the playground and parking lot. The basket on the side of the hill at the North end of the parking lot is a practice hole.
The front nine begins on the East side of the parking lot. The back nine is on the trail going up the hill directly East of the playground. That trail will take you right to hole 10. After the 10 basket follow the trail heading down the hill to find 11
If you have kids there is a great old-school playground by the parking lot with teeter-totters and tractor tires. All the good stuff they don't put on new playgrounds. There is also a fishing pond on the west side of the playground that is loaded with trout.
You can spend some time at this park and really get away. Every time I've played it we have been the only people there.

Pros: This course has a great variety, multiple tee pads (roughed up concrete), good signage, and high quality catchers. The local community has done a great job producing a course in an unlikely location. It is not far from the main street of Soda Springs and puts on a nice PDGA C-Tier event each year. The progression through the course is fairly logical. The property that the course is on is very scenic. The course is creatively designed to use the location's strengths.
Cons: With some of the longer weeds and grass you can easily lose your plastic.
In a few spots on the front nine, you better have some bug spray.
A couple of the teepads are a little odd. (This is understandable, one is a small wooden platform (not much else can be done where it is located), another is small and slanted down and away)
There is also a disconnect between the front and the back nine. Without a map or some help, it might be hard to make your way back and forth.
This is nice addition to the disc golf in the area.
Other Thoughts: Especially on the back nine, there is a real premium placed on accuracy. If you go off the fairway, you pay for it. Many times on this course, you are far better off just throwing a mid right down the middle.
Just a suggestion, if you are going to go play this course, wear long pants. (even during the summer) It will help with the bugs and the briars.
The front nine is much more family friendly then the back nine.
Clearly there has been some work by the community to make this course happen. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
