Pros: - Concrete tees
- Baskets are all DiscCatchers in good shape
- Walking distance from hotels
- One small mound of dirt to provide some slight variation
- Good for beginners and kids
- The only place to practice without driving out of town (also a con)
Cons: - BORING!
- No trees over a foot tall anywhere on the course
- Half of the signs were knocked down
- Some holes have the potential to end up throwing at the wrong basket if you haven't played the course before
- Muddy in some spots during the time of year when I was there
- It's really boring
- No bathrooms, port-o-potty, or really anywhere to go to the bathroom
- No benches or trashcans, but the course isn't that long, so it's not too big of a con
- Small creek and marshy areas around the course with no real way to cross them without getting wet in some spots
- The signs are nothing more than a wooden post sticking out of the ground with a number sticker on it. Not that they need to really be more than that, as every basket is visible from the tee. A bunch of them were missing their #'s though.
- Deep gopher holes around the course
- Trash and empty bottles laying around on the course
- Did I mention how boring this course is? Because it is probably the most boring course I've ever played.
Other Thoughts: I think my buddy Adam summed up this course the best when he said "The hardest part about this course is finding a place to pee."
The course consists of an open block in the middle of Bozeman. There are a few trees on the lot, but most of them don't come into play, and the ones that do are less than a foot tall. It's mostly flat, with a tiny bit of mounds that add a slight bit of variation to it, but not much. The course is surrounded by houses and business, so the immediate surroundings aren't anything to write home about, but there are mountains that are visible in the background, so, it's got that going for it, which is nice. When I was there the course had standing water on it in a lot of spots, with no real ways to get through without getting your feet wet. The 2x4 bridges that they had put over some of them were not strong enough to keep me from sinking into the water, and I'm a pretty small guy.
There are only 3 reasons I can see to play this course, if you are a course bagger, if you live in Bozeman and can't drive to one of the courses outside of town, or if you are staying at one of the hotels in town and want to walk to a course for a little driving and putting practice.
