Pros: Worth the drive to see the Olympics over one of the most well hidden State Park Lake fronts in Washington State. The course circles around a huge field, and enters and exits the surrounding forests. Two tee placements for 9 object posts makes 18 holes. The course is well maintained for for having no baskets yet. Very friendly locals. This course has the potential to be a destination course.
Cons: This course has been here for over a year, and is still a "trial" course. The lack of permanent tees and baskets are a testament to that. Currently the (newly formed) Mason County Disc Golf Club is drafting a proposal to the State to include a pro-27 permanent course. The new course will utilize the 2/3 of the park most land users do not see.
The large field that the current course wraps around is leased for hay. So, 2-3 months out of the year it becomes a major problem.
The posts are not baskets, so you better be comfortable with your putting accuracy.
Also, the tee areas can get slippery when wet.
Other Thoughts: The local club has a lot of support from the West Sound Disc Golf Association and Olympia Disc Golf Club. After the State okays the proposal (which is something they want to do- because since the intro of disc golf they've seen the land use, vandalism, and off-roading problems disappear) the club will be holding different fund raising tournaments, including random doubles, BYOP etc. Stay tuned!

Pros: It is wide open. My dogs love it. Not crowded. Late day sunsets during the summer. Most holes allow you to air it out. Expansion is in the works.
Cons: The first 3 holes have hazards left in the form of blackberries. Very deadly indeed. I have the scars to prove it. No baskets (yet.) The grass can get pretty high in the spring, so watch out for raptors, and keep at least 4 eyes on your disc.
Other Thoughts: I started playing 6 months ago on this course, and I'll be there every weekend with my dogs. They would rather explore than chase discs. This is a great place to learn a really fun sport.
