Pros: Nice new signs showing hole placements
Wood chipped trails to keep the mud down
Helpful locals to show beginners the course
Short holes to improve your technical game
Fun even for beginners, you can get par on most holes even without a great drive(might be a con for some people)
Baskets get moved to alternate positions from time to time.
A "back" 9 set of cans mixes up play if you want to do the full 18.
Cons: Sometimes gets busy
Brush is THICK in many areas
Other Thoughts: Use bright colored disks and write your name/number on them for when they get lost.

Great course

Pros: Most challenging course out of the two in Klamath Falls, Great setting in trees so there is a lot of shade on a hot day. Most days you have a nice breeze coming off the lake so the course changes day to day due to wind. I play this course almost everyday.
Cons: Now that spring is here the grass on the fairway is getting taller and the brush is getting thicker making it harder to locate your discs. If you haven't played this course a couple of times then it is hard to locate certain holes you have to know to look for the arrows on the trees.
Other Thoughts: Would be nice if they made a sign of where the basket is like other courses I've played. Also maybe look at getting sponsors for each hole so that the course stays playable.

its open again wooo hooo

Pros: Found this a very fun course, small and quiet with lots of beautiful trees. I will stop here when ever I drive through K.Falls. Great use of the small area. Excellent signs and info. posted. Great variety of tee materials.
Cons: None. Other then they should add another 9 to the trail system towards the south.
Other Thoughts: #1 Tee is just past the private cabin, parking lot on the left.

 Small, but fun.

Pros: -Nice park/area in Klamath Falls.
-Good mix of lefts and rights.
-Perfect for a quick nine holes
-A couple of really fun unique holes.
-Just challenging enough to be fun.
-Every hole has it's own shape and length.
Cons: -Lots of brush in and surrounding course.
-Borders a public park so on busy days and events the course can be impeded some.
-Really only a 9 hole course.
-Small, so it can seem busy with jus a few players.
-Bugs can be bad in the summer.

Other Thoughts: There really aren't too many negative things about the course. That being said there aren't too many positive things either. Worth a stop if you are driving through or live in the area. But sadly not worth a trip to. There are supposed to be 18 holes, but it is alternate tones you play after you play the baskets, so... Great Ace run course, lots of birdies. Except hole 8, won't see too many birds on that one i think. A few mando trees come into play. The course creators have plans to extend the course up the hill and add an additional 96 holes! Thats what their plans are for. So for Klamath, way to go, the best course in the area by far. (compare with Crest Street Park)

Pros:
- Interesting terrain
- Fair fairways
- Good mix of left and right shots
- Easy to navigate
Cons:
- Only 9 holes, and most are on the short side
- Rough is very dense (although not too extensive)
- Tone poles that make up the "Back 9" could be better
Other Thoughts:
Moore Park is a popular and well-developed city park on the west end of Klamath Falls, across the street from the lake. "The Attraction" sits in a wilder, more undeveloped part of the park, east of the main picnic area. When I played on a Sunday afternoon, a number of family groups were playing the course, some with Frisbees.

There's a little bit of elevation and a whole lot of shrubs and pine trees; every hole has at least some "rough," and while I didn't see anything toxic (thank god), some of those bushes are very thick with sticks and thorns, and you don't want to have to reach in there. Some of the tee pads have a homemade feeling (pavers, not concrete) but are very good, and there are "next tee" signs nailed to trees to guide you around.

I thought the course was very fun to play, and after I played it once (which only took about half an hour), it was impossible not to go around again. Each of the 9 holes has its own character, with a couple of ups, a couple of downs, some lefts, and some rights; the only straight-ahead shot (#4) requires you to throw high to get over some bushes.

The only problem, layout-wise (other than the fact that there are only 9 baskets), was a certain monotony in the distances; most were in the 150'-270' range. While I appreciate the charms of a shorter course, I do think that one or two longer holes would make it more well-rounded. Obviously, though, you're limited by the land you have to work with, and there really isn't much room for more length here.

There is a "back 9" at The Attraction, where you use the same 9 teepads but shoot at tone poles in slightly different placements. The day I was there, a couple of poles were missing or lying on the ground, and many of them seemed sort of junky. It's nice to have the option for an alternate layout, but they look so sad next to the shiny new baskets.

Pros: Some challenging holes, what really makes some tough is the amount of brush on either side of the fairways which are minimal at best. Uses the terrain very well, which makes up for the length of the course
Cons: Small fairways, not long, tee pads are brick but adequate.
Other Thoughts: fun course by yourself, and small groups. not crowded

Pros: This course now has nine baskets. A couple of the holes were pretty cool. Pay attention to the signs to the next teepad. They are helpful!
Cons: Leave the big arm at home. Except for those couple of cool holes this is another short course with not a lot of challenge.
Other Thoughts: Klamath Falls does not have a "destination" course.

Pros: Beautiful setting in evergreen forest by Klamath lake. It has lots of trees and narrow fairways. Most holes are short and technical with unforgiving rough. Good use of elevation changes.
Cons: Hard to find or even get to discs in the rough. Due to county restrictions course is not well maintained. Fighting the brush for a place to stand is often a problem. Course lay out is hard to fallow. Find a local to help navigate.
Other Thoughts: Overall the course is a great place to spend the day. Privet and never crowed. If in Klamath it is a must stop.
