Lots of tree challenges
Pros: I fell in love w/ the park after hole #5 of the 15. lots of great huge oak trees to navigate around. Course flows extremely well. Very clean park. Decent baskets and tee boxes that are rubber. Course maps provided. The visitor info building sells discs (9.95) mini markers (1.50) children's discs (3.95) so it allows you to get into the sport w/out any gear for cheap.
It is beautiful in fall time just walking and hucking discs through the fallen leaves. Advanced players should par the course (par 3 every hole) and novice players should par their 2nd round of playing.
Camping sites provided close to the course that appear to be well kept too. Space wise it's very comfortable w/ decent lengthy drives despite the large amount of oak trees. Few O.B. areas which is nice for beginners. Also plenty of non player areas to do activities.
Cons: In my opinion they could make it a full 18 hole course w/ the amount of space provided in the park. If a beginner player there are a lot of trees that I can see to be frustrating for them by hitting those trees.
Other Thoughts: The visitor info building has a great funny old lady that knits and a guy that likes to stamp the daily pass dates upside down... They've obviously been married forever and I knew once meeting them it was gonna be a laid back fun park/course.
On the short drive down to the course we stopped and tried to round up a run away sheep w/ a local farmer that boards the boundaries of the land and my experience was a thought of "what awaits me around the next corner" by then I have had soo much fun I was already fully committed to playing this course.
If living in Beaverton area DO NOT take the I-5 directions as it will only waste your gas/mileage and time... I recommend taking the alternate rout along hwy 99 down into Newberg and back tracking a few miles to the park off of hwy219.
If you live in the area of Newberg there is a possibility of hitting up 2 other courses ( Ewing Young and Herbert Hoover) making it a 3 course playable day. I recommend playing this course if you are advanced or a novice player. I plan on frequenting the course regardless of the 3 dollar day pass (the money helps maintain the park)
