First round at UVU
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Course is build around two large manmade ponds which adds a fun challenge to a handful of the holes.
-Tee signs hole number and distance.
-Clean area, grass is well maintained.
-Clearly visible baskets.
Cons: -SHORT course. It's fun, but each shot is an easy 2.
-No designated tees. Most you can throw from sidewalk, some from grass.
-Tee signs and baskets get wacky around hole 10. A new building now sits where holes 12-15 are on the provided map. Signs and baskets have been moved around/removed.
-Very little elevation change. Holes 5&6 are really the only downhill/uphill holes.
-Being on a college campus, it's virtually impossible to play during the day when school's in session.
Other Thoughts: Good course for a short round and to practice your short game. No long shots at all. It does require some skill, though, if you don't want to pond your disc or have it in the baseball field.
If you're a student at UVU, go out and try it. Even if you're good at throwing an Ultimate Frisbee disc, you could have fun on this course. Great course to use to get familiar with the sport.

Pros: Great little course. Beautiful surroundings include grass, fountains, campus architecture and some decade old trees lining several of the fairways. Due to some notes on DGCR course info, we were worried the course had been pulled.. but this was not the case. I took the whole family and my kids loved the short easy layout. We brought some dragons and hydras (floaters) which were nice because the deep fountain pools play on several holes and my 5 year old can throw pretty wild at times. My two daughters (10 and 13) were a good age for the course and enjoyed seeing campus life up close as we played.
Cons: Don't bother bringing any disc faster than a 5-speed unless you like dead weight in your bag. Short isn't necessarily a bad thing since we could all use plenty of short-game and upshot practice.
Recent campus expansion has impacted this course. Baskets have been moved and tee signs are inexplicably missing (posts remain). Some locals explained to us where to start and finish and the course flows well once you get a starting point.
The holes are SHORT. MAybe 120' average. This course presents a good opportunity to take your wife and kids and just plan on practicing upshots with your driving putter. A fly fishing class was in session on one of the fountains so we had to skip two holes or risk whip-wounds from swirling fly lines.
Other Thoughts: Go west off the roundabout and you will see some of the course on your right. Keep going until you see a sign for visitor parking. Turn right into lot area and you will see another sign for visitor parking indicating left OR right. Go right into a gated guard shack type entrance with a motorized gate-arm. Tell the guard you are a visiting to play disc golf and you will get a premium spot. Then walk south to the course. 1st tee is in the far northeast corner of the fountain area across the sidewalk. (no sign, just a bare post)
