Best AB Course for New Players
Pros: - Beautiful backdrop with the mountains behind.
- Decent (but not perfect) tee pads, baskets and signage.
- All around enjoyable short, non-technical course.
Cons: - Not very technical.
- Couple of holes (6&7) were taken out due to homes.
- In a residential area, some pedestrian traffic.
Other Thoughts: This is, in my opinion at least, the best course in Alberta for new players. Beautiful landscape, fun little layout, decent baskets and signage, not very technical and not very long.
Not a challenging course for anyone who's played a lot of disc golf, but enjoyable nonetheless as a warm-up course for Nordic for those people.
One reviewer said "not worth a trip by itself", which I disagree with if you're just a casual disc golfer. This is a neat, fun little course with as beautiful a backdrop as you'll find in Alberta.
Nice Little Course
Pros: -Short course, doesn't take long to play.
-Baskets and teepads were pretty easy to find.
-Pretty well kept.
Cons: -Holes 7 and 8 were missing. I should have checked the reviews before playing, but just be aware!
-Some grass was quite long.
-Not too many difficult/technical shots.
-No numbers on baskets, so it's hard to know for sure if you are throwing to the right basket.
Other Thoughts: Some guys who were playing gave my two year old cousin a disc which was pretty neat! Was a decent course overall!

Pros: Great signage, good alternate tees, nice Innova baskets. Overall an excellently kept course with playground nearby, which the kids enjoyed!
Cons: It was fun to play but lots of short holes. Nothing that really challenged to long drives, only accuracy counted. The other problem is some of the holes were jumbled together, in one place with 3 baskets real close. The Innova baskets desperately needed numbers on them, and it would easily solve the confusion.
Other Thoughts: Overall a pretty good course, and worth it if only for the AMAZING views. That gave it an extra half rating. In Canmore just before the park beautiful scenerey all around.

Pros: Family friendly atmosphere located in residential area featuring shorter holes and a childrens park nearby. Natural mountain setting, some slopes and a few challenges also make for a nice warm-up for Canmore Nordic just minutes down the highway. Overall cleanliness, visual appeal, full signage with alternate tees and good baskets make this a worthy stop. If you're bringing kids, it could be a destination. A permanent porta-potty was added to the course near the parking lot/kid's park - very helpful for family outings.
Cons: Gravel tee pads have worn in, pivot holes getting deep. Paved path along course is well used, dog walkers/pedestrians occasionally walk through course. Some signage out of date as to distance and alternate pin locations.
-update Sept 26/10 - tee pads have been raked and repaired, much nicer to drive off of.
Other Thoughts: Mostly short holes with a few challenges presented by landscaping obstacles, bring your short game. Caution must be exercised running a couple of the holes as wayward or over-driven shots can present a hazard to nearby golfers/park users. A pleasant stop.
- Update 2013: Baskets were placed out in the open more this year, hoping for a bit more challenge for 2014.
- Update summer 2014: Holes 7 and 8 are closed. The course will be redesigned for 2015.
