Pros: I loved this course! One of my favorites. The typical courses I play on are a grassy, woodsy kind of environment so I loved the difference this course has to offer with rocky surfaces and beautiful views of the mountains. The course is brilliantly designed in a circle-like fashion and every hole is fun in its own way! One of my favorites was hole 6, I believe, where the basket was WAY to the right of the field and out of sight from the tee-off position. It's a fun, puzzling challenge that puts your skills to the test considering discs usually curve to the left.
Cons: As awesome as this course is, it doesn't come without flaws. The location is not great. It's out of town, hidden behind a big neighborhood. It doesn't make it easy to find. Maintenance of the course is well needed, the stones that once told the par and distance of the basket is now faded away. And something I found odd was that only some holes have tee-off concrete pads while others don't. It makes it confusing for where to tee-off at for the ones that don't. And since it's close to a neighborhood, there is a slight risk of causing damage (really only one particular hole that's located just next to a home).
Other Thoughts: Excellent! Love it! Pros outweigh the cons by a longshot. I highly recommend this course!

Great place to learn
Pros: It's a nice place to go play an take ur family to hang out an BBQ an play a few rounds. The course was laid out very well with some great shoots
Cons: The rocks eat up ur disc very much so. An some of the pads don't tell u how far the hole is
Other Thoughts: Maybe need to talk to city hall an make it a full 18hole course that's all I think it needs an maybe more parks in the area

Pros: If you enjoy the desert you will really like this course. Word of advice, play it early in the morning, sunrise is awesome.
Cons: Some rocky fairways will ding your discs.
Other Thoughts: Great local course with beautiful views of Lake Havasu City and surrounding mountains. We love this course. Restrooms have been added.

Fun in the Sun
Pros: Year round course. Trees and shrubs are maturing and will only get better, already affecting holes 2 & 7. Always changing wind adds to the challenge, which is good. Easy course lay-out and a pleasant walk.
Cons: Additional targets would be great, enough room to add maybe 5 to 6 holes.
Other Thoughts: Well received in the community and played daily by locals as well as many positive experiences by out of town visitors.

Pros: Good course design given the minimal amount of space allotted in the park, being surrounded by upcoming housing developments. No real distance between baskets and tees for the coming holes, with only a couple minor overlaps in fairways. Great introduction to the sport for beginners with distances ranging between low 200's and mid 300 footers. Course is new and in good condition and the Discatcher baskets are a big improvement over the initially suggested poles or hoops. A practice basket is provided out of the way of a drive towards hole 9. 9 ends up at both the beginning of hole 1 and next to the parking lot, making everything very convenient.
Cons: All of the holes are basically wide open shots, with a minor exception on hole 6 where you need to shoot to the right at a basket you can't see from the tee (my favorite hole). Roughly five of the holes have fairways of rock which eats up pretty quickly at any of your DX (only type of disc available at local retailer Big 5 until higher grade Innovas begin selling at local businesses, soon to come) or Pro plastic discs. One playthrough and your discs look seasoned, without the added benefit of actually being broken in. A couple of fences ride fairly close to the fairways for the inexperienced level of players on the course, without close gates available. This requires occasionally long walks on a shanked throw, or even other throws no more than 20-30 feet from a couple of the holes.
Other Thoughts: Overall an enjoyable course with enough variety to continue playing and help work on your game. A great course to develop a love for disc golf, and a much needed addition to Lake Havasu. Success of the first DG tournament held by local Parks and Rec has led to the possibility of an 18 hole course also being developed in town in a much more open area, unfortunately living out in the desert doesn't cater well to a high number of obstacles or difficulty. Not a must-play for passers-by, but an enjoyable time and one that will help foster a knowledge and love of DG in a place previously unexposed.

Pros: easy course, great starter course for beginners. yet still challenging enough for experianced players as well. it may be a nine hole course but every body always plays 18 becuase the tee box for one is right off of 18 so you start were you stop a very friendly design if you ask me.
Cons: may not be challenging enough for pro players. no restrooms
Other Thoughts: nice fun course has extra basket for practice. just had the first annual "freedom bridge foundation open" disc golf tournament. 11/01/08 about a hundred people showed up for th event.
